Not A Closer

I haven't had much to post about lately, because I've been working on a couple of ideas. I've started several posts, but I'm having a difficult time finishing things. It's a bit like the phenomenon knitters call "start-itis". I have so many things I want to do, that I just can't focus on one of them and see it through to the end before diving into something new. So, I am working on several projects all at once, which makes for poor blogging, I'm afraid, but, it keeps me interested.

I have a recipe and a tutorial I hope to get up soon, but I need to test them again, and it's been too hot to cook, and the tutorial is for something I use regularly, but don't need to remake yet. So, those are on hold. I've also been playing with nail polish a lot recently, and am trying to figure out how to turn that into a little business. The legal jargon is bogging me down. And, I've been experimenting with henna on surfaces that aren't me.

A tiny sample of my henna experimentation.
This photo was taken just after I removed the paste, they have oxidized nicely.

I haven't forgotten about this blog, I just haven't had anything interesting to contribute. Hopefully, I will get over my start-itis soon.

Happy (Belated) Birthday Jasper

Yesterday, we celebrated Jasper's 2nd Birthday. I can't believe he's been with me for nearly 2 years. In some ways it feels like we've been together for an eternity, but also like he has grown from a squirmy little kitten, with a short little tail, into a beautiful and energetic cat, with a ton of personality, in no time.

I intended to post this yesterday, but my internet connection went kaput. I couldn't even get Safari to work on my iPhone! So, this is a slightly late tribute to my little orange boy.


Happy birthday, Jasper Gaius

The Fourth

I have been ill, and haven't been around much, but I wanted to wish everyone in the US a happy Independence Day; and for those not in the US, a happy Monday.
