And now I just sit in silence.

On Friday evening, Harper and I went to the Enterprise Center to see Twenty One Pilots. Jeff surprised us with the tickets on Tuesday night and Oh, So Much Joy. (The seats were amazing. We’re so lucky.) I take pills to keep my brain (and transverse colon) working. As a result, I am physically incapable […]

So, you think I can dance?

Fluid Pudding was down yesterday, and when I say Fluid Pudding I mean this very website—not me. (I have been called “Pudding” before. A few people have asked, “Are you Fluid Pudding?” Honestly, I love when that happens because it makes me feel like Parker Posey.) So, because the site was down, I wasn’t able […]

This evening a friend and I went to a book reading and author signing at Left Bank Books. The author, who is a friend of my friend, was charming and smart and I’m looking forward to reading her book. Looking around at the bookstore reminded me that Amazon is convenient, but Amazon isn’t really where […]

It’s about socks and socks and shoes with a little Obama and pineapple.

This morning I spent some time working on my election socks. The last time I tried to knit election socks was way back in 2008. (I haven’t yet finished my 2008 socks, but I do remember how happy I felt when Michelle Obama’s 2009 inaugural parade dress matched my unfinished socks perfectly.) Anyway, the fact […]

Although it’s been said many times, many ways…

After Harper’s orthodontist appointment this morning, the girls and I met my mom for lunch. On the drive to the restaurant, we listened to Christmas music. At the restaurant (Freddy’s if you’re nasty) I ate a veggie burger wrapped in lettuce and it was definitely the right choice. After we ate, we went to a […]

Learn something new. Every day.

I’ve been practicing my dip pen skills. Actually, I’ve been trying to develop some skills, but it’s harder than I thought, and I’m not sure it will become a thing for me. I’ll give it a few more days. I guess the smart thing to do would be “The quick brown fox jumps over the […]

Oh, Sunday.

This evening was spent eating portobello tacos and street corn with a friend who loves words as much as I do. I then drove home, read a few chapters of The Miniaturist, and worked on the gusset of a sock. This week is our fall break and what a lovely way to get it started. […]

Today was made for marching.

(photo credit: Julie F.) This is what happens when a bunch of talented and enthusiastic young musicians get together for several hours each week. They take charts and phrases and they rehearse and then rehearse some more and they fine-tune certain things and they maybe change up other things and they focus and they care […]

Om Gan Ganapataye Namo Namah

I have local honey. 60 pounds of it. I have jars. 72 of them. I’ve been sterilizing those jars. I’m going to heal our town. I’m now the person who runs to her car to grab a sprig of sage when something stressful is happening. Lately, I’ve been into circles. As a result, my ears […]
