workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Last night I dreamed about tidying, and also my plants. I mean, my dream!plants were pretty neat, but it turns out dream!me also is bad at watering properly. That’s got nothing to do with work, but it *is* Thursday, and I *am* going to work, and I didn’t feel like I had much else to […]

summer sleeping

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Summer sleeping is so different than winter sleeping. In the winter it’s all layers and blankets and socks and having a warm cocoon till morning, then turning on all the lights to make it seem like daytime even when it’s still dark out. Summer sleeping is one blanket and no socks and sticking my feet […]

what is weather

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Okay, so last summer was all about the drought, and I think I over-adapted to drought conditions, because I am still seriously confused by what to do with all this humidity. Me: “It’s 68F degrees, a beautiful cool morning!” Also me: “…And yet I’m sweating and every time I move I feel like I need […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Worked an earlier shift today, which was weird, but not unpleasant. The cat is confused. I am also confused, so I am at a loss to assist. What am I doing? What time is it? It is 7 pm. I am doing the 9 am things. It feels like the start of a shift work […]

adventure recap

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

I am happy to report that my Saturday adventure walk was a success — while I was driving there, I actually thought I had forgotten my map, but once I arrived I realized I had cleverly stored it in my backpack after the last adventure, so I was all set. The least scenic but surely […]

weekend plan on track

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

After a very fun but also busy weekend last week, I am excited to have a hermit day today. The hot weather makes a perfect excuse, too! Today’s goals: *no driving anywhere (saves money on gas, too!) *pajamas all day (seriously, it’s shorts and a t-shirt, what difference does it make if I slept in […]

goin’ adventuring today

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Or rather, I’m driving a short distance to a forested area with well-marked trails to tromp around getting sunburned for a while. I can’t wait! (Really, I’m looking forward to it. It turns out that my ‘regular voice’ and my ‘sarcastic voice’ are pretty identical, which probably says something uncomplimentary about my personality, but I […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Given these two factors: 1. My workplace may or may not be moving an additional 30 minutes further away. 2. My job may or may not be slowly driving me around the bend. I am currently looking at other options. Sadly, rich eccentric is still off the table. However: 1. Job hunting is basically awful. […]


Thursday, June 1st, 2017

It’s June! It’s — very foggy, actually, at this exact moment, but the sun is making a valiant effort and I think it will make an appearance later. Reminders for June: *awesome gift for *Andrea’s birthday *Fathers Day on the horizon (6/18) *June is WONDER WOMAN month! *oh, work *first of the month — time […]

electrical misadventures

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

I am Not Great at crisis thinking. As in: Monday night, an electrical outlet in my apartment started making noise. It was that alarming crackling static sound that immediately makes you think ‘is that catching on fire?’ And there’s me, staring at it like that’s going to do anything (a watched outlet never ignites?) and […]
