Life’s a beach


Life's a beach

The husband and I went for a walk around our ‘hood yesterday afternoon. I haven’t walked around here since we moved here in June. Turns out, a few blocks down the street is a foresty area. Unfortunately, people dump thier stuff there, too. Somebody abandoned a golf cart, as you can see. Sad, isn’t it? It could be a beautiful little area for people to hike through and enjoy and stupid people are using it as a garbage dump. It pisses me off that people here have no respect for nature.



I started a Pinwheel Baby Blanket for my Husband’s Brother and his wife who are having a baby. Due sometime in the next few days, I am told. I thought it was due in January. But no. It’s due at the end of November. Yikes. Definately not going to be done in the next few days.

I’m knitting it with Plymouth Encore Colorspun worsted yarn. Half Acrylic and Half wool. Washible and dryable. Which is good for babies, I would imagine. I am using the exact same yarn that I used for this baby blanket. The recipient of that one, another niece on my husbands side, is now a little over a year old and she LOVES it. It’s her blankie. That makes me so happy. Something I knit for her is her beloved blankie. It’s the highest compliment for a knitter, I think.

I am the moon


You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery – when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Here we go:

  1. Red Hill Mining Town. U2. The Joshua Tree.
    The Joshua Tree
    A song from my High School years. Reminds me that I need to tell you about the new turntable I recently inherited.
  2. For what it’s worth. Willie Nelson. Stars and Guitars.
    Stars & Guitars
  3. Basket Case. Green Day. Dookie.
    Old Green Day. Killer.
  4. In Limbo. Radiohead. KidA.
    Kid A
    Kid A had to be one of the most brilliant albums of all time. Just sit by yourself and listen to this album sometime. Do nothing else but listen to it. You will see what I am talking about.
  5. Love that never dies. The Byrds. 20 Essential Tracks.
    20 Essential Tracks From the Boxed Set: 1965-90
    I like the Byrds, I suppose. This song is kind of bland, though.
  6. Emenius Sleepus. Green Day. Dookie.
    Another old Green Day song? Killer.
  7. Tales of Brave Ulysses. Cream. The very best of Cream.
    The Very Best of Cream
    Hmm. It seems we are either on an old Green Day theme or an old hippie theme tonight.
  8. Fashion. David Bowie.
    No album cover for this one. Great song, though! I remember this video on Mtv when I was in Junior High. “We are the goon squad and we’re coming to town. Beep beep!” How could you not love these lyrics?
  9. One Love. Bob Marley. Legend.
    Legend (New Packaging)
    This is one of my all-time favorite songs. I can’t help but sing along.
  10. Red Temple Prayer (Two headed dog). Roky Erickson and the Bleibalien. Songs of the Seventies: Punk and New WAve.
    No album image for this one, either. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard this song.
