Those are words I don’t often write.Today, it feels kind of right. January is over. I’m looking forward to the rest of the year. At the moment, I don’t have energy to write more. I’m hoping I can get recharged by tomorrow. Maybe it’ll be warmer too. We’re in single digits right now. That means … Continue reading The end
The picture above is one that I took. On my way into work this morning. While I do lovesunrises in the morning on a cool day, I am glad that January is almost done. January is not my favorite month. December is my second least favorite month. And for more reasons than just because they’re … Continue reading January is almost done
Foirgive me if there's typos tonight. Temmy is sleeping on my shoulder and I'm holding her in place, so typing with one hand. It snowed last night more than I thought it would. Here's a couple picture. The first couple were taken without extra lighting because it was so bright. I didn't even need my … Continue reading Snowy Sunday
Tonight, I am going to write my blog in less time than it takes to cook a pretzel. Yes, boys and girls, I have just put my pretzel in the oven to bake. And now, I write. Yes, it's a little late for me to be eating a pretzel, but I had a light dinner … Continue reading Magical feat
This time of year, I always start to crave grapefruit. I've fallen into a habit of getting some writing done and then sitting down to enjoy my grapefruit before I wind down for the evening. At least until a couple of days ago. I've been out of grapefruit for several days and I forgot to … Continue reading Grapefruit
Everything I've tried to write tonight has turned to mud in my hands (so to speak). I give up. So, I'm going to leave this here and get on with my evening. Instead of fighting the nature of the day which has left me feeling immobile, I'll just lean into it. Cheers.
The stars felt distant tonight. The air is cold, but not as crispy clean as usual. Granted, that could be the gagging smell of someone's venting dryer. The scent always makes my throat close up and my eyes feel swollen. Whatever they (whoever they are in my neighborhood) use (whatever it is), they use too … Continue reading The height of clouds
Today has ended up to be a lazy day. Oh, I had things to do, but I just couldn’t get to them. I did some reading, but I kept falling asleep, despite getting enough sleep last night. I finally gave in and went to take a nap. Now Merlin is telling me that he wants … Continue reading Sleep energy
I love watching the stars. Granted, right now the nights are a little cold to stay out for too long. That doesn’t stop me from trying. My dad and I used to go and stand outside in our long driveway. We’d face the fields but look up at the stars. He’d point out a few … Continue reading Taking me back
After I finished my short, stressed blog yesterday, I stepped outside with Merlin and it was snowing. The snow was so wet that it sounded like rain. The pitter-pats of it hitting the leaves, lawn, and plants was amazing. Then, went I went back inside, the pets convinced me it was time for bed. I … Continue reading Cats and stress — who asked for that?
