Comic Con was fun. The boys liked it, especially the meeting of a Hobbit(that THRILLED them! ok…and me a wee bit too. *grins* ),then perusing the Lord of the Rings exhibit….where they stood in front of a massive Orc, and had a pic snapped…and they loved seeing all the people dressed up. I bought a Marvel comic mug for my tea, a cool necklace from a fellow jewelry artist, and got lots of exercise! I am sooo glad for comfortable shoes!!

Good geekery bonding moments with my sons. 🙂

Precious Moments

Last Sunday night, while we were driving home after a trip to see my parents…

Having had my life flash suddenly before my eyes, as I looked up from my book, after dropping my book, in shock and surprise, when the brakes were strongly applied, and my seatbelt engaged….and seeing, in the bright illumination of the headlights directly in front of me, the tail end of the doe that decided it was a good time to dart across the night shrouded highway, 5 minutes before home… just barely missing her, then in the next fraction of an instant seeing that the lane we swerved into had an oncoming vehicle, and then narrowly missing it too, as we swerved into our own lane again…. I breathe relief. I breathe. I am here. My family is here.

Every moment is precious. Every single one.




I am made of stardust

Sparkling and alive

I dream and soar

On comet tails 

And forever will survive


I am made of stardust

Enchanting and serene

I dance and play

On Saturn’s rings 

In hues of blue and green


I am made of stardust

Warm and vibrantly bright 

I laugh and sing

On Jupiter’s moons

Always a wondrous sight


I am made of stardust

And throughout the Universe I fly

On to explore strange new worlds

As brilliant as a sapphyre sky…

Night Bloom

At night, when everyone else is sleeping, I like to cruise UToobe, Grooveshark, or, for new music. The house is quiet, no chores need to be done, and I can concentrate on finding fresh tuneage!

I felt like posting my best find of the night…

An indie folk band from Australia…. The Paper Kites

so nice… 🙂

The Nothingness and Everythingness about Quiet, Feel-Like-Cooking Days

I think I’ll make beef stew today. In the slow cooker. So the meat is extra tender when it is done. So it can marinate all the flavours together brilliantly. Good thing to make on a morning in what-should-be-Spring-but-looks-and-feels-like-February. And maybe I will make cookies today too, time given for it. For my little sweeties, who only have another half day before their Spring Break starts, because I love them to the end of our Universe, and all other Universes, then back again. I am thinking a double batch of oatmeal and something…oatmeal raisin for one batch, and milk chocolate/peanut butter chip for the other. One semi-healthyish, and one almost decadent. I need willpower when I make cookies, as to not eat six at a time, when they are fresh out of the oven! I can do it, though.  I never deprive myself of little joys in life, like cookies, and such. Just everything in moderation…. and a good workout every day if possible.

My world is quiet right this minute….mellow…And I like it. I savour it. I hold on to it, like a life-preserver of stability….

Trying For Interesting on a Particularly Spaced Out Day

I am soooo lethargic and sleepy today! I hate that! I had a nap today, and I rarely do that. Frigging feel like an old lady when I do that! And I don’t feel a whole lot better. Still spacey. ugh. Anyway….I thought to sit and write something….anything….to try to perk my brain up. I don’t know that it is working yet. 😛 I always have this urge, everyday, to try and be interesting. I don’t feel very interesting. And I’m probably not, but I’ll try, anyway….

I went back to the stupid dentist again today to get a sharp spot fixed. It shredded my tongue all weekend! Anytime I ate, or even talked. It was torture! So, I went today, and got it ground down. I feel SO MUCH BETTER!! Although we got to talking about how the fillings 40 years ago were made of mercury(which I knew) AND LEAD!! *GASP* About how some people are more susceptible to heavy metal poisoning than others, and how those fillings may be a cause of Alzheimer’s and other nasty brain disorders in later life. oh great. :-/ My head is full of poison. Has been for 40 years now. But I already knew that…. whatever, I guess….

Looking forward to Comic Con coming up very soon! The boys and I are very psyched for it! Definitely getting my inner geek grrl on for that! They are excited to see “real” Hobbits and Dwarfs in the person of the actors who portray them. It is cute. 🙂 I think I shall either wear my Fringe T-shirt, or my Starfleet Academy one… I can’t decide. 😛



Speaking of LOTR….I am going to pick up The Hobbit and The Desolation of Smaug this week, for the Easter Bunny to give to the boys. 😉 “The Amazing Bunny” usually gives them a good movie, and a bit of chocolate, now that they are older, and don’t appreciate the stuffies much anymore! hahaha! I will still “help” organize a nice egg hunt, however. They still love that. Even my 12 year old, but he would probably deny it! lol

Archer chicks rock! ;D

Archer chicks rock! ;D

Having them get older, seemingly so fast, is making my head spin! I took them to see Rio2 yesterday, at the theatre, and only my 7 year old would sit with me. The other two wanted to sit in the row ahead of us, because, as you know….it is embarrassing to be seen with your MAWWM. WAAAAA! 😛  I still have one, at least, who likes to be by my side, and will still give me affection in public! He is 7 already, though, so that will undoubtedly change soon. The other two duck down, and I get to kiss the tops of their heads, now, instead of their cheeks as they mumble their goodbyes to me in the morning, when I drop them at school. Someone might see, after all! lol

Well, I am out of mundane babble for now. At least I managed something out of nothing! woo hoo! I am going to go make my homemade lasagna for dinner. My secret ingredient is feta in the middle instead of cottage cheese. Ok…I also have a few secrets to my sauce too, but I can’t go giving everything away! 😛  It is quite fabulous, btw! You know it is working when your kid drifts over from whatever they are doing and asks you, “What smells so good?”! 😀
