Favorite Crafts

Crafting dilettante: just enough knitting, jewelry making, chain mail work, lampwork beads, glass etching, paper folding, paper art, drawing, painting . . . to say I've tried and might try again. (and have the boxes full of supplies to prove it!)

Except for cooking & baking. I do that like it's my job. (it's not my paid job, but I do need to eat!)

Current craft obsession: CHAIN MAIL JEWELRY. I cannot get enough. When I do not have pliers in both hands, I am on theringlord.com drooling over beautiful supplies or amazing chain mail delights on their forum or on http://www.mailleartisans.org/. Hooray for tiny rings!

Things I Like

naked, stamped, addressed postcards

naked tourist postcards

slice of life narrative--tell me some minutiae of your day! (especially if it's about food or meals)

very tall pine trees

silhouettes

shadows

the colors of twilight (the time of day)

watching bats flit about in the summer dusk

the smell of junipers

the incredible soft spot behind a rabbit's ears

a cup of tea

the first snowfall of the season

growing tomatoes

eating tomatoes

fresh herbs

browsing used bookstores

finding a book you've been searching for in a used bookstore

fountain pens & colored ink

the smell of baking bread

fresh baked bread with a pat of butter melting into it

popcorn

gray November days where the silver sky feels endless

summer picnics under the pine trees

watching clouds

sunrise

sunrise hikes

cornbread made from freshly ground corn

lilacs

witch hazel

forsythia

jackelopes

pickles & sauerkraut

Favorite Books

My favorite niche genre: nonfiction comics/graphic books about food & cooking.

Other niches I will devour: slice of life comics & manga; domestic fantasy

My core genres: Sci Fi & Fantasy, memoirs (especially about food), cookbooks, popular science. Occasional visitor to: cozy mysteries, travel writing

I'm always reading something. Okay, maybe somethings. At the very least one nonfiction books and one fiction book. And a cookbook or three. And probably two different comic series.

Audiobooks are awesome.

Digital vs. paper: both!

Currently reading:

-Comes As You Are by Emily Nagoski

-Kitchen Yarns by Ann Hood

-The Lyra Novels by Patricia C. Wrede

-The Binti Series by Nnedi Okorafor

-The Seven Culinary Wonders of the World by Jenny Linford

Favorite podcasts:

Gastropod - looking at food through the lens of science and history

Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids - exactly what it sounds like!

LeVar Burton Reads - The best short fiction, handpicked by the world’s greatest storyteller. In every episode, host LeVar Burton (Reading Rainbow, Roots, Star Trek) invites you to take a break from your daily life, and dive into a great story.

Science Vs. - Science Vs takes on fads, trends, and the opinionated mob to find out what's fact, what's not, and what's somewhere in between.

Comment: Thanks for the great PC and facts. I certainly plan on riding the cablecars when I visit SF but was not aware of the streetcar line operating international vintage cars. It's now on my list! We have a trolly museum near here, which I enjoy visiting, but most of the exhibited and operating cars are from US cities. Best Wishes, Neal

Comment: Theo, thank you for the snowy postcard. I see you got hit with another snow and ice storm yesterday-definitely not my favorite. I lived in Western MA for over 65 years before retiring to Eastern NC. Where in MA do you live? Shirley
