  • Jeremy: 6, Cockroaches: 1

    One always hears tales of the enormous rats and cockroaches that infest the city of New York. I’ve seen the subway rats, and perchance they are not as large as the famed sewer rats, but it was nothing to write home about. So too it was with the cockroaches. Over the course of the last…

  • Settling Back In

    I made it back to Brooklyn on Friday. True to form, it continues to be more difficult flying to NYC than returning from there. I had a layover in Detroit. Upon arrival, I learned from the reader board that my flight to LGA had been canceled. After inquiring with an airline rep, I learned that…

  • Back to the Grind

    Well, spring break is over already, and Jeremy is winging his way back to NYC as I write. I took several days off to hang out with him, and even though we didn’t do much worth mentioning, it was a lovely week. I have a brief update about little Loki: we took her to the…

  • Liberty

    Whatever you may think about New York City, there are few icons as recongnizable as this one… Here’s a semi-artsy picture, that I’ve taken to calling ‘Sunsets on Liberty’. Sorry about the pun… – Jeremy

  • A Short Update

    Not sure when I will post my next blog entry*, so I’ll just give you a brief update for the time being. * Jeremy comes home for spring break late tomorrow night, and my parents will be visiting over their spring break the following week. Yay for company! Knitting Progress I’m very pleased to say…

  • Weekend Update

    What, two updates in one week? What is the world coming to… Here are a couple of pics. This one is from Figure Drawing. Kind of interesting, basically the same model is alternating between two poses. We’ll have 3 more hours to work on this next week. I really need to work on the face,…

  • Springing

    I think I’ve told a few people already, but this year I am really looking forward to spring. It isn’t that I ordinarily dislike spring; spring fashion often leaves me cold (in more ways than one), but the new life of the season does have universal appeal. It’s just that spring means that summer is…

  • Mid-Week Update

    I know it is out of character for me to post between weekends, but I brought the camera to school today to get a couple of pictures. I don’t have a lot of time to give details about what these are, but if I get a chance soon, I’ll rework this post with more information.…

  • OSC in NYC

    I don’t know if most of you would consider this to be a famous person sighting, but Orson Scott Card, author of the excellent book Ender’s Game, among many many others, had a book signing in town today. Julie forced me to brave the wintery mix of snow and freezing rain, not to mention the…

  • News about Loki

    Over the past few months, I’ve been watching with concern as Loki, our second-oldest girl, has lost weight and energy. Finally I was able to take her to a vet for examination, and have some bad news for those of you that know Loki: she has been diagnosed with lymphosarcoma (lymphoma). This is basically a…

  • Vintage Cardi, AbFab, and More

    I know it’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been busy in the interim with a few new knitting projects that I have just not photographed yet. After finishing the Dresser Scarf socks, I was ready to move on to a new project, but had no ideas lined up, and a severely dwindling stash.…
