Monday, July 31st, 2017

Switching shifts at work, starting today. It feels like the least of the changes I’d *like* to make at work, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’s a step in the right direction. [art credit Claire Mohjer]

adventuring update

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

I went adventuring to a new park yesterday! Got some sun (contrary to the forecast), got some practice navigating a map that doesn’t match the actual trail system (I was always confident I was on *a* trail, just not always sure *which* trail), and saw a cool sky phenomenon! Like a rainbow, but not! (Probably […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, July 28th, 2017

Two fics today, because they’re connected and great and I just want everyone to be friends and eat pancakes. How (Not) to Meet New People, by aloneintherain (Peter meets Foggy.) And the sort-of sequel, avocado socks and burnt pancakes, by aloneintherain (Peter meets the rest of Team Daredevil.) Peter glanced between the three of them. […]

Yesterday, I was one of the day’s lucky ten thousand: I learned that the internet has a cat! Purrli, aka “The Internet has a Cat!” is a purr generator. Yep. And it’s amazing.

Two wonderful retirees that I met last summer invited me to join them on a two-day hiking trip this September. ‘Great!’ I said. ‘Sign me up!’ Last Friday I got a copy of their planned itinerary, and I nearly called the whole thing off. I suspect these two may actually be superhuman, because I need […]

summer check-in

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

1. Summer foods consumed: popsicles, ice cream, hot dogs, food truck bbq: check! 1a. Summer foods yet to be consumed: maybe some kind of iced coffee drink? 2. Summer plants: still alive! 2a. Summer plants admission: I’ve actually swapped out two of the originals for coleus cuttings. 3. Summer activities: just did a fun google […]

baffled by time

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

I’m at that point of the month when I’m startled *both* by how much of it has already passed and how much is left. It’s the 22nd! But there’s still more than a whole week to go! (Part of it is the weekends, I think. July has five full weekends, which hasn’t happened since April […]
