Given that we are currently #SaferAtHome, I've been making the podcast rounds. Give a listen to Zestful Aging, where we talked about just doing it,  Mama Bear Dares, where we talked about the importance of local government, and/or The Upstate Regular, where I talk about our county's COVID-19 Challenges. 

NEW: I did an online reading for the Princeton Public Library and talked a little bit about what local government is facing right now. If you've wondered what I look like at a reading, give it a gander.

Humulus is like potato chips, I guess

Last November, I finished up a Humulus sweater. The result was ... fine. But it wasn't what I'd envisioned, dang it.

Yes, yes. I finished it just in time for summer, which is how most of my sweater knitting ends. But that's fine, really. I know winter will be around again -- and that Scott and I are on our way to Iceland in July, where the summer temps warrant some wooly goodness* in your suitcase just in case.


* Wooly Goodness would be a great drag name, imho.
