Tomorrow dragon’s face! Outlander 8 is the background story.

Okay, confession time. Since starting Camp NaNo, my memoirs/autobiography/my life, my background show has been Heartland. I figured I have horses to look at and it wouldn’t be distracting. I was scared it would be heavy western music. It has been tolerable. I always skip the intro song, but even it isn’t horrid. It is just boring and doesn’t seem to apply to the show.

Anyway, it worked quite well for the first four seasons. Great background. Then suddenly I found it distracting. I got invested in the characters and story. So I guess I should recommend it to others. I’ve made it to the 13th season! Only one more, then I’ll need another distracting background.

Making Monday


Busy, busy, busy! I’m having fun. For the most part, except for

See the marker? Yeah. Somehow that bit of squiggly yarn escaped being knitted in. So. Tinking. Unknitting.  Unmaking. Poor hat was making great progress. 😢

Finally, we put the TARDIS on the wall.

I hope the Command Strips hold. We put Duct Tape on the back to give a more nonporous surface. If not, I know a Dollar General that has actual frames!

My Beach Sunset is coming along. Here is how I protect between the sessions.

I couldn’t find my picture of my setup so here it is again. Just a quickie to show how it works. The quick-release paper that came on this picture is off as I am getting ready to work as soon as I publish this. And yes, I store other hobbies under the table.

Here is the protection between work times and progress to date.

Quick release paper protects the sticky surface pre-diamonds.

Nearly finished with right side of picture. This is the position for working.

Orientation of actual picture.

For #Movie/Television Monday I just finished Sweet Magnolias. A great show for background.

It’s okay

I enjoyed Raising Dion.

I already miss it!

A quick update of editing. I’ve added to my new project 4,748. I can’t remember if I shared that. This was my second NaNo written probably 2002. Yikes! 20 years ago! And it’s easy to see what a pantser I was way back then. Lots of rewrites ahead.

Okay. My Diamond Painting is shouting to me. See ya soon! What are you making/watching?


I was going to write a long stream but I’m caught up in this newest binge and I can’t let go.

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!

Finished Friday


Oh, and Freezing Friday. Here’s our porch light as proof. It’s creepier at night but too cold and icy to step out to take a picture.

These finished and the next already started.

Kitchener cast-on, white toes cinnamon foot, white heel and cuff.

A very satisfying finish was the series Lost in Space.

Now back to Season 13 of Doctor Who.

Oh and here’s to the finish of this horrid year

See you next year!

Making Monday


And other tidbits

These are turning out fun.

Watching Dash and Lily. So cute.

A Boy Called Christmas grabbed me with the cute boy and talking mouse.

Started watching Tick, Tick, Boom. I’ll try to watch tomorrow.

It has been so cold (high of 22) that we spent most of the day in the bedroom. I did manage about an hour out in the living room. And another hour on Diamond Painting. Oh, my living room time was watching Lost in Space. DP time listening to Les Miserables. 75% finished. It’s long even on Audible.

Back to Dash/Lily and knitting.

One-Liner Wednesday


Badge by Laura @ riddlefromthemiddle.com

“Sometimes our deepest hate is for the things we cannot change about ourselves.” Said by the oldest Witcher, Vesemir.

I’m really enjoying The Witcher. The other quote I almost chose as the One-Liner was, “Never look a giftwhore in the mouth.” But it seems a bit too far. By the way, that one was stated by the prostitute supposing to help Yennifer.

Sunday


This has been such a busy day that I can’t believe it is already over. Where did the hours go? I did finish a sock. Oh, I had my NaNo project, Crystal, open all day and I was actually working on the character developments I needed. And Check☑ I got one out of 8 done. And I copied the story from yWriter to WriteItNow. But during all that I was watching season 4 of Dawson’s Creek. It’s so sad to watch the kids all go off to college. It’s called Dawson’s Creek and yet nobody but empty-nesting parents are at the creek. This show so reminds me of times with my teenage daughter, yikes, 20 years ago! And I never watched these last couple seasons as we all moved and my own empty-nest happened. But enough strolling down memory lane, that sock mate won’t knit itself. By the way, this is my last week of being 71. Yikes! It’s all above ground and healthy. Can’t complain, right?


Yeah. I finished m wordage for NaNoWriMo. To get through the writing, I either listened to Pandora Classical Study Channel,

Dawson’s Creek,

or the Misfits.

I know. Quite the variety. My story is about people who are learning about new abilities. Hence the Misfits. There is a lot of family drama. Therefore Dawson’s Creek (And I love meandering down memory lane when my daughter and I used to watch it regularly, think, Y2K!) Other times I needed to just have something in the background. The music did the trick, usually. That is when it didn’t make me pull out the recorders or run to the piano to play Moonlight Sonata or Sarabande.

I wish I had pictures of something that is finished. But socks and hats took second place to writing. Oh, heck. This pair is close enough, just needing the cuffs. So Bam!

What are you watching, working on? By the way, Diamond Painting will be my next thing. I’m gathering bits to help with the new hobby.

Happy Friday and Happy December!


I thought I had it made! I saw Golly Gee and Animal Crackers came to mind. Ah, alas, I was wrong, as the lyrics point out below. She says, Gosh, oh Gee. Well. Too bad. Shirley needed the nod. I bet if I did a deep search, we could find when she actually said, Golly Gee!

I think I’ve talked about how I was/am a Shirley Temple fan. In sixth grade, (60 years ago!) I was the leader of my class’s Shirley Temple Fan Club, membership ONE, ME. I would sing the songs for my classmates. Where did I get the courage? Well, the year before, my friends and I did The Wizard of Oz, so…

In sixth grade, I was 12. My mother told me she was Shirley Temple’s actual age. Ms. Temple was already an ambassador. Well, here’s her wiki.

My piano teacher did everything she could to keep me interested in playing the piano, so she found this book for me, yes, I still have it, and it is in the same shape as I am these days.

The only centerfold I’ve ever loved!
See the Lassie sticker? There is a sticker on every song in this book. That meant I could play them near perfection. Ah, but now, it is sadly hard to play. Maybe after cataract surgery? I can only hope!

Lyrics

Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop
Gosh, oh gee, but I have fun
Swallowing animals one by one

In every bowl of soup, I see
Lions and Tigers watching me
I make ’em jump right through a hoop
Those animal crackers in my soup

When I get hold of the big bad wolf
I just push him under to drown
Then I bite him in a million bits
And I gobble him right down

When they’re inside me where it’s dark
I walk around like Noahs Ark
I stuff my tummy like a goop
With animal crackers in my soup

Animal crackers in my soup
Do funny things to me
They make me think my neighborhood
Is a big menagerie

For instance, there’s our Janitor
His name is Mr. Klein
And when he Hollers at us kids
He reminds me of a Lion

The Grocer is so big and fat
He has a big mustache
He looks just like a Walrus
Just before he takes a splash

Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop
Gosh, oh gee, but I have fun
Swallowing animals one by one

In every bowl of soup, I see
Lions and Tigers watching me
I make ’em jump right through a hoop
Those animal crackers in my soup

When I get hold of the big bad wolf
I just push him under to drown
Then I bite him in a million bits
And I gobble him right down

When they’re inside me where it’s dark
I walk around like Noahs Arc
I stuff my tummy like a goop
With animal crackers in my soup

When they’re inside me where it’s dark
I walk around like Noahs Arc
I stuff my tummy like a goop
With animal crackers in my soup

Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “golly gee.” Use “golly gee” or another interjection that displays the same sentiment in your post. Enjoy!,,

One-Liner Wednesday


During NaNoWriMo I binge on oldies like Jurrasic Parks; one of the tunes in the soundtrack reminds me of:

Isn’t it interesting how fossil fuels play?

Per Linda:

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!
