About Soup

I woke up yesterday to a chilly, damp and rainy day. It called for soup.

The process of making soup is magical to me. I take all these disparate ingredients and mix them together into a watery mess. I add heat and come back hours later to find that the watery mess has turned into […]

Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?

I’ve been to London, to visit the queen!

That’s how the rhyme goes, but not for me. Oh, well.

But to answer the question, I’ve been right here. Doing stuff.

First of all, I’ve been trying to spend less time online. As I’ve been feeling better (and yes, yes I have!) I’ve been trying to […]

New name…stays the same?

I wish I knew the answer to that!

Last week, I had the opportunity to renew Write, Knit, Spin.com. I thought about it for a long time, and decided to change the name of the domain as I was changing the focus of the blog. So, welcome to Artisan Woman. The name is, I hope, […]

Detox, Detox, Detox

oh…how difficult you are.

I saw the nutritionist yesterday. She’s a holistic nutritionist, believing as I do, that a body out of balance manifests in disease. And boy, is it ever time to put my money where my mouth is. I don’t want anybody to get alarmed, though. I’m working closely with my MD (who […]

Back on The Bike

Yeah, I’m writing about the bike again. I have a feeling it’s going to happen a lot.

You might have already figured out that I love riding. I’ve already explained why.

Today, I had a break between clients. I was in a lousy mood because I have an appointment with my […]

There’s good news and bad news

I just got a call from my doctor.

The good news is that I don’t have Celiac Disease. Of course, as she pointed out, that doesn’t mean I can eat wheat without experiencing joint and muscle pain as a result. We only know that I’m not flattening out the intestinal cilia when I do. I […]

Weekend Wind-down

Gluten-free day 4. So far, no light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t an oncoming freight train.

I think the worst part of the detox is that it feels like things are getting worse instead of better. More pain, more fatigue as my body tries to rid itself of what it perceives as […]

Worth Repeating



Braised Kale and Tortellini


I’ve been craving dark green, leafy veggies lately. The Kale at the market looked amazing, so I brought home two bunches. Kale is pretty boring steamed, but sauteed, it takes on new life. I’d not braised it, however, and was curious as to how that might come […]

Checking in…and checking out

That’s one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite songs, Wild, Wild Life, by The Talking Heads. Because it sums up so much of my life. I check in, I check out. I, like so many people, have spent my life checked out. I’ve found a myriad ways to do it. When I […]

Everything Changes…

and so does this blog.

Honestly, folks, as you can probably guess I’m tired about writing about fiber. I mean, how much can you write about wool? Yeah, I knit and I spin, but I do a whole lot more. In fact, if you look at the recent (I use the term loosely) content, you’ll […]
