Cathartic Ink

putting my own spin on things


Uffda! What a long month it has been. How does it go so quickly? I’m back in classes for this term, and that’s kicking my butt a little bit. We’re also at Nanie’s one day every week trying to get things all squared away for a. the estate sale and b. the house sale. It’s read more


Gremlins + Intarwebz = Grr.

I’ve been having an issue this afternoon with wordpress forgetting it’s theme. So, instead of seeing a pretty blue background and a picture of roving, people see a blue box with a white background. We’ve fixed something that might have been causing it, but if anyone experiences this, toss me a comment/email so that I read more


New Theme.

With a little help from TheBoy, and a whole lot of tweaking of an existing theme, Cathartic Ink has a brand new look. If you’re viewing through an RSS feed, you might want to click over and check it out. Thanks!


It’s Coming!

Thanks to a few lovely belated wedding gifts, this lovely apple green kitchenaid stand mixer is on it’s way to me. I can’t wait to give it a good home.



Just before 9am on August 21, 2007, my husband’s beloved grandmother passed on. A heart attack on Monday morning caught us all by surprise as her health was very good. We are devastated, she was very very dear to all of us. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about her later, when the hurt read more


Hold Tight to the Happy.

What a time to be without my knitting. I probably shouldn’t be blogging right now, but I cannot sleep because my brain is far too full. Today has not been like I ever imagined that it would be. I’m going to be cryptic for now, because my heart needs a little shelter. Something to fill read more


Doing vs. Discussing

A big part of why I don’t blog as much as I used to is that I spend a lot of my internet time doing research for other big things going on right now. No, I am not going to have a baby, just to clarify things. Let’s just say it will be great in read more


Chicken for Dinner

It’s been hot here in Oregon. Hot enough that I want to cook things quickly (or not at all) and make enough to eat for several meals. Last night’s dinner fit both of those criteria. I tend to mostly make things up as I cook, throwing in some of this and a lot of that read more


Out of Habit.

I have totally fallen out of the habit of writing in the blog. There have been lots of goings-on so I’ll do my best to update things here. For starters, we’re married. photo taken by sara. TheBoy is also now TheHusband and apart from being able to call him that (which I do with remarkable read more


Happy Birthday to Me

There’s nothing like an impending wedding to make your birthday feel mostly insignificant. But, I’ve officially entered the latter half of my twenties and we made the last huge arrangements for the wedding today. Now, I just have to stay sane for the next two and a half weeks, including having faith that a. my read more



TheBoy and I have been contemplating a few newish applications lately, including twitter and tumblr. Earlier today he and I both decided to get set up with the latter. I’ll probably post a smattering of things that I find that are interesting to me. Feel free to follow my meanderings at TheBon in Brief.
