Word of the day

Definition of: ‘bacciferous’ is: ‘bearing or producing berries.’. Learn more at:

our bacciferous bushes are the red and black raspberry

No, really, we have 2 of them in the garden and the berries are awesome. As long as the birds don’t get to them first.

earth warrior day

I don’t know if it’s actually Earth Warrior day, I just made that up, it sounded good, and I really really like this definition. If you had a picture of me beside/in addition to/instead of this definition, you’d still get it and it would still be true.

Have an awesome earth warrior day.


Saturday crochet

Yep, crocheting in public. I’ve been busy making washcloths (they are so pretty and easy to make, I even have a favorite pattern memorized) for myself, for friends, for gifts. It’s very meditative.

Sometimes I think people look at me weird for doing this, but hey, if people can talk loudly on their phones on a personal conversation and not think that is intrusive, I can crochet.

Hope you have a meditative day.

Lazy Sunday

It’s nice to have a relaxing day where one can sit with their thoughts and just be. Maybe a little meditation also. I don’t like always having to do things, or be somewhere, or just being busy because if not, it makes me look like I’m not a productive member of society. Which isn’t true.

I once had a coworker tell me that I wasn’t busy because my desk was always clean and neat. Which meant to her (since her desk looked like a hoarding situation) that I was lazy and unproductive, because I didn’t have papers everywhere. Which wasn’t true.

But for today, I (we) are lazy. And that’s ok too.

Hope you have a lazy and productive day.

Lazy Sunday

Isn’t this just pitiful? Grandpa just loves these puppies, and they love him, it is so cute.

So today is a movie watching/intermittent napping day. Have you ever watched ‘Arrival’? It’s a fantastic sci-fi film. It’s not a very fast paced movie, and you need to pay attention as there are a lot of fast forwards. A fabulous movie on language, communication, and understanding.

And now we nap.

I like copper

Copper is such a pretty metal, and it is so soft, malleable, and easy to work with. It also makes some pretty amazing colors when it’s being heated. I have a lot of fun when I’m working with it; adding silver, stones, beads and then putting it through the tumbler to see how bright and pretty it turns out…it’s a good day.

Copper is also said to have some metaphysical and healing properties to it. There’s not scientific evidence to back this up, but some people swear by it. One thing I find interesting, is that copper is an excellent conductor of electricity. There are scientific studies that show that the human body conducts its own type of electrical charges to move cells through the body. So it makes me wonder, if the human body carries its own electrical charge, and copper is an excellent conductor of electricity, maybe wearing a copper bracelet actually can help with circulation? Just a thought.

Although I’d be careful putting on too much copper, I wouldn’t want to spontaneously combust.

Be careful out there.
