Shiver

The temperatures are finally in the range where I wish I’d planned ahead and worn my jacket in the morning, but still warm enough that I’ll forget that jacket in the afternoon. It’s cool enough that yesterday, meeting a friend to exchange greetings (and dinner), my knees shook as the rain misted us and the […]

Anxiety/Frustration

Frustranxiety? That might work. I’m anxious. And frustrated. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. When I have time to craft, I just want to be behind a computer. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, BRAIN. I don’t like this. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. […]

Water, floating

I learned a thing from the Internet (so please don’t take this as gospel) that you’re supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in oz of water every day. (Have I mentioned this before? Please forgive me if I have.) So I’m giving it a shot. At first it was really hard. I felt like […]

CRAFT, sleep, lack of caffeine, and other things flying through my head at a million miles an hour

How much of that blog title will make it into the site URL, I wonder? I need to craft something. Usually I get this urge in December after writing hard during November, but it’s here now. I want to cross stitch or embroider (I don’t know how to do that, by the way), or maybe […]

Crunch

Spicy Doritos Taco Bell #10 That piece of random something in the hot dog that shouldn’t be there Overcooked pork pot stickers Chocolate pieces in Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Beetles under your shoe Bumper meeting bumper Autumn leaves on late September mornings Popcorn The spine of a new book Good celery, cucumbers, and apple […]

I have a problem. (Maybe. I can’t tell.)

I am very susceptible to impulse purchases. For example: If an author/blogger/writer I enjoy writes an article on Tor about another author’s book, describing how it was created, a bit about what it’s about, and how that book broke some rules and then created new ones, I am very likely to go and buy that […]

Heat

We only have two window air conditioning units in our house and one functioning ceiling fan. There are two floor fans and two desk fans on the first floor, and four floor fans (one for each bedroom and the bathroom) on the second floor. Our house is old and the insulation isn’t wonderful. The windows […]

July-December 2019

Greetings and salutations! It is July 1st, a Monday, the start of my week. It’s a nice way to start a new month, honestly. Sometime in the past couple of years I switched from a Sunday start to a Monday start. While a lot of calendars try to trip me up with Sun-Sat weeks, I […]

I’m having a “wtf” moment

While I guess I enjoy that this person is playing with masculine/feminine in clothing, I’m still just like…what???

Risk

This month’s prompt is risk. I have several big projects to tackle if I want my home to be less stressful to me. Cleaning out my garage. Removing some carpeting from the house. Things that there’s a very good chance I’ll do wrong. But I don’t know if I don’t try. And that’s the risk. […]
