scattered, scattered

an elf in autumn









Since I definitely will not be blogging for a week or so (as if I generally blog more often?), here are some links to keep you busy.


  • Sarah Palin hits a nerve among Jewish women, but it's a raw one by Marissa Brostoff in The Jewish Daily Forward.
  • Romancing the Yarn, the knitting blog by author Barbara Bretton, whom I first met almost 30 years ago when she was a patron at the library. New new book, Casting Spells, is set in a very special knitting store!
  • The Pen Addict. Do I need to say more? Pen pr#n.
  • The Octogon. Books, books, books, and a weekly haiku. On The Magus : "One day I will come across someone who will adequately explain why they loved it so much and put me out of my misery. Until then I will always view this book as a self-indulgent tome that was a waste of time to me. Deep breath..." Wry and generous. Go visit.
  • National Novel Writing Month. Heaven help me, I'm going to try again. This time, I have collected fragments of a plot, a character or two, and lots of ink for my darling Lamy fountain pens. If you'd like to be my writing buddy, I'm teabird17 over there. Send chocolate. Send ink.

Okay can someone help me out!? Today im at a friends house and they made me tea. Now, instead of using a tea bag, they dropped this little ball shaped tea leaf inside the hot water. Something strange and I have never seen it before. Its literally a tea leaf rolled up into a ball and dropped directly into the hot water. Surprisingly, one of the best tea's ive ever had. Oh yea, it had a kick of Peach in it as well :)
