Blogoween Day 25 – Witchcrafting We–Thursday: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

No Vacancy podcast today because I'm taking a little break from the serial this week while we move, but I do have yesterday's video ready for today, so heck yeah!

Letting Your Writing Sit

I wanted to call this post "Take A Break From Your Writing" but sometimes people just read headers, and I'd be remiss, Dear Reader, if that's all someone took away from this post.

Blogmas: A Wreath

I did a Christmas craft! Yeay! Well, I guess technically it's a Yule craft, according to the name.
