winter plants: 2 week update

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

Two weeks into the great plant over-wintering adventure of 2018, I can report mixed results. The kiwi fern coleus cuttings look spectacular. (They really are the chipperest of plants.) They’ve taken to their new winter pots like champs — leaves look good, they turn to follow the sun, all the positive signs that roots are […]

Yesterday I woke up to no internet. Clearly this was a crisis, because I somehow felt like I needed to deal with it before I was totally awake. I took the following steps: 1. Stared at phone. Checked settings. Looked for the right network; doubted myself on whether I was remembering what I named the […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, September 28th, 2018

Okay, first things first: 1. The breakfast was not a buffet. I was definitely late, but not as late as many, because traffic has been kicking my butt lately, and also I’m very bad at guessing when my phone gps wants me to turn at the current stoplight or the next one, because they’re really […]

workaday Thursday: breakfast edition

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Going to a company breakfast thing this morning! Sometimes I like to pretend that I am one of those employees who can handle things like ‘driving new places,’ and ‘changing my schedule.’ The trick in this case is that technically I have driven to this place once before. (I don’t really remember it, but I […]

a meandering post for a meandering day

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Yesterday it was so chilly when I got to work that I wore a winter hat for my pre-work walk. And then last night I slept with the window open. ::shakes fist at sky:: Weather! ::opens hand to wave instead:: Also the crickets sound great this morning, well done! In other news, today’s horoscope includes […]

like the original, but more me

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

Yesterday my workplace sent out an email titled ‘what’s most important.’ (Not capital letters, clearly.) It was about the six things deemed most important to focus on between now and the end of the year. Which kind of seemed like a great concept, since we’re heading into the final three months of 2018, except that […]

still confused

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Last Friday I went to a work seminar about “trust.” It was great, in the sense that I got paid for 45 minutes of sitting quietly and not being too obviously distracted. But honestly, I didn’t get it. The speaker kept talking about trust like it was a yes/no question — you either trust someone, […]

happy equinox!

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018

I read a Vox article called 8 things to know about the first day of autumn, and it was great, because #8 is, “I clicked on this article accidentally and really just want a mind-blowing picture of the sun,” and that’s the kind of list I can get behind. So here is my own list […]
