Ouch^2

(By the way, this is not the dream post that I tried to start a few days ago. That one is still marinating in my drafts folder.) So after several false starts, spring has finally sprung in my neck of the woods! Everything is growing, blooming, bursting with life (and pollen 😮) and it's so... Continue Reading →

Every day is a different adventure

I had a spell for a few weeks where my knees were complete treacherous bastards. Unless I was absolutely vigilant when walking, one or the other would slip painfully without warning several times a day. It got to where I had decided that this was my new favorite quote: This past week, they've been a... Continue Reading →

Spiderrific!

I'd originally planned a longer post tonight, but I'm sore and feeling run down, so instead I'll share some of my favorite recent spider sightings. 😀🕷️ The featured image is a big wolf spider that was running across the pavement outside our door. My partner actually spotted her and called me to come see. This... Continue Reading →

Outlet mal*

*That's not a typo. So I made it through another week, mostly by going to bed before nine, and as we were having breakfast this morning, my partner asked what my plans were for the day. I shrugged noncommittally. "You mentioned earlier in the week that you wanted to buy some sweatpants and shoes..." she... Continue Reading →

Control interrupted

Well, my surge of productivity and self-improvement has kind of fizzled, mostly due to a completely disrupted routine. Between bad weather, scheduling changes, and several other things that completely derailed my normal work pattern, I'm having to get back into the flow of things. I hate routine changes, it completely messes me up. I started... Continue Reading →
