adjective; irritably or peevishly sensitive; touchy. First known English use was in Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. (Courtesy of Miriam-Webster Dictionary)

So I joined the Word of the Day email list. I’m a word nerd I guess. “Tetchy” is my favourite word thus far! Maybe because I am in a tetchy mood alot?

I mentioned that I love to read awhile back yet I’ve only recommended one book! A good book, but still only one! So here are some others I recommend:

  • Eat, Pray, Love. – Made me hungry. And want to travel.
  • Hip Tastes: The Fresh Guide to Wine – I thought I should learn about wine, so when I order it I know what I’m doing!
  • The DYI Bride – I wondered if I should help my sister craft her wedding…the answer is no.
  • The Almost Moon – Very odd. And disturbing. Read The Lovely Bones as well.
  • Food and Cooking in Victorian England: A History  Combines my love of food AND history!
  • The Last Summer (Of you and me) – Just a good read.

Of course I’ve read alot more books than that…but most are Chic-Lit which sometimes I feel guilty about reading. But oh well.

Knit Night YARN ART NIGHT is back up again, which includes but is not limited to knitting, crochet, and spinning. That little correction was for Miss Jen over in Ireland! Sorry for not being inclusive to all of the yarn arts : ). I was unable to attend the first one, but made it to the second. We’re a bit smaller this year, but hopefully more people will join in on the fun : ) I’m working on a retro poodle bottle cover, which is going smoothly so far. My cam’s batteries are dead so when they charge up I’ll take a picture of my progress and post it!

I’m off to job hunt!

Have a marvelous Autumn afternoon!

I’m still here!!

At the urging of Miss Jen over at Persephone’s…I’m updating!! : )

My sister got engaged a few months ago…I’m maid of honour and am learning that my duties are to do everything but get married…so it’s been busy.

My contract at work ended…I was happy for a few weeks because I really didn’t enjoy that job but now that I don’t have a paycheque (meagre as it was..)I’m feeling the crunch to get employment…with health and dental benefits to boot!

Absolutely no crafting has been done. I’m lacking in the creativity dept. at the moment. But here are some pics from recent times to keep you up to date…

Oops…Sorry for the teaser. My photo program doesn’t seem to want to work. I even managed to delete a nice picture at Nathan Phillips Square…I’ll figure this out tomorrow.

i have been doing a lot of reading..mostly chic-lit and cookbooks but it’s the summer my reading list can be light!

I re-instated the healthy life plan..TODAY! Eating well took a backseat there for awhile. But I was begining to feel gross so it’s back. Even though I had those damn Bear Paw cookies…And I will certainly miss that Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake with Tiramisu Ice Cream from Caffe Demetre’s, and that Almond Joy Ice Cream from the Marble Slab…but I’ll get over it. At least I hope so….

Anyways. There’s a poor excuse for an update!
