IET Trip Three

I went to see Kathy again last night. It was a calmer, more relaxed evening – well, in that I had no huge epiphanies. Mostly, anyway. We discussed my week, which was mostly gleeful and happy. I had spent the night before with Laird hanging out at dollarama and value … Read More ›

Book #9: Hearts in Atlantis, Stephen King

Huh. This was really interesting but the end totally confused me. I think it was connected to the dark tower/gunslinger series, which I started reading but lost one of the books and never found the others. Engaging, though. 672 pages.

Reiki & Integrated Energy Therapy

The last month or so has been a real upheaval for me. I was puttering happily along in my life, gearing up with jewellery and doing well at work and seeing a boy or two here and there. Then this guy, a friend of a friend, and I started chatting … Read More ›

Book #8: River God, Wilbur Smith

This was interesting because I’d read Warlock a year or so ago – and this covers a piece of the life of the same character, much earlier in his career. It makes me want to track down any in-between books and figure out how he got from here to there.   … Read More ›

Book #7: The Glass Lake, Maeve Binchy

Interesting book.. Binchy writes in a manner which doesn’t really allow you to walk away from it. Short bursts like cutscenes from various viewpoints keep dragging you back. The story itself was something I hadn’t seen before, and was pretty OK. 692 pages

Re-Reads #s 1-6: Harry Potter #s 1-6

I have been SLACK here. Mostly because I wanted to keep track of the page numbers and I read these six books in a row and now they’re strewn about the house and I haven’t gathered them up yet. Anyway. Harry Potter, one to six, ploughed through in a week or … Read More ›

Jewellery Journal

I seem to be posting a lot of jewellery news here, and it’s sort of not the right place to do that. It will instead be at a new journal page, which I wanted to host on gaylebird.com but I got fed up with the technical bits and just set … Read More ›

Some Pretties

I think I screwed up my camera settings; pictures keep coming out all grainy and I have to resize and de-noise and brighten and colour correct, and it’s no fun whatsoever. But! Look! A necklace that could be worn as a crown: And a commission for my friend Elinor, called … Read More ›

Book #6: Magic for Marigold, by L.M.Montgomery

Huh, I thought I’d had all my LMM books already, but two more showed up in a late shipment. Me likey! Soft and sweet and full of nature-loving, fairy joy, just like most of her books. Very pleasant. LMM has a way of creating wee characteristics for people you only … Read More ›

Book #5: Slow Emergencies, by Nancy Huston

I read the first half of this book in the waiting room before a doctor’s appointment last week; the previous book was a giant hardcover, and this fit nicely into my purse. It doesn’t, however, fit neatly into any category, or even into my psyche very well. It’s about passion, … Read More ›
