This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

“Here we come on the run, coal fires burning”

“Here we come ,on the run, our coal fires burning.

Here we come, fife and drum, under the radar we crept on!”

I spent the morning rocking out to Abney Park. I finally got the chance to listen to their new album Aether Shanties. Which, totally rocks.  It was a funny picture today of me in my kitchen, making custard dancing and grooving.  Even more funny if someone had seen me, as I was listening on my mp3 player and thus I was the only one who could hear it.

What can I say… when I hear good music, I get the urge to move to it. Especially if I’m slaving over the stove for at 15 minutes of nothing but continuous stirring.  (Yes, I rock out while dyeing as well)

Once the dyeing was done, I realized it was quite chilly in the house. I opened the front door and when “holy crap… it’s snowing.”  I had no idea that snow was even in the forecast. But it’s my own fault. When I switched over from Firefox to Chrome, I lost my little toolbar that told me the weather, and I haven’t had a “real” television channel on in 3 days.

And on that note… Superbowl day? Really?

Who knew.  No… really I did know… I’ve just chosen to ignore it.  But I couldn’t for the life of me tell you who was playing etc.   Sometimes ignorance is bliss.  Sometimes it leaves you cold and wondering how many inches we are gonna get.

Today has been a Stargate Atlantis marathon and dyeing.

Yesterday I did the bulk of the dyeing.  Today was tweaking and fixing some things.  I dyed a skein of Bellatrix on silk sock, and a new one. One I have been meaning to do for over 6 months now. Coraline Duvall from Moonlight.  I also dyed a skein of Romp in the Heather for a customer. I’m proud to know that I was able to recreate it.

Hopefully tomorrow they will be dry enough so that I can take photos. Also hopefully the sun will be out enough to take those photos.

My original plan for Monday was to get up super early and be at the gym at 7. Yup, not getting out of bed at 7, but be at the gym.

The snow on the car will most likely prevent this.  But I’ll still drag my butt out of bed early enough to attempt it.  I would really like to make up for not going to the gym on Friday.  After class tomorrow shall be running errands.

The good thing about rocking out to Abney Park this morning, meant I got inspired for writing.

The bad news, is it’s not getting me inspired to finish the novella. I need to find some nice WW2 music for that. If anyone has any suggestions, I’m more than willing to give it a listen.
