nesting day

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

It’s (almost) April! Time to open the windows, do tons of laundry, and rearrange the living room furniture to the non-winter configuration!

mud season

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

Went for a walk today at the place where it’s easy to get a little lost, but hard to get a lot lost. (The trails don’t really match up to the map, but it has some easily recognizable landmarks and is surrounded by suburbs, so you can’t go too far astray.) It was muddy. Not […]

at least it’s Friday

Friday, March 29th, 2019

It’s 6 am and I’m already 100% done with this day. ::deep breath:: Since calling out from work is probably not an A+ plan, here’s the strategy: *I have leftover pizza for lunch. Which I am looking forward to! A delicious mid-day marker. *If I skip an official lunch “break,” I can leave work half […]

Distractions have been most welcome this past week, so I started watching Guardian (I know, late to the party!). And you know how at work sometimes there’s 80 hours worth of work crammed into a 40 hour week, and sometimes it’s more like 20 hours stretched out over five long days, and either way everyone […]

Me, at work:

winter is over

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

The Christmas bear wreath has been taken down! Since last year it didn’t come down until May 3rd, this was quite a shock. I had to double check to make sure I was looking at the right apartment door (I was, it had just been a long day). And so, the Christmas door art season […]

Monday musings

Monday, March 25th, 2019

My apartment overlooks the parking lot, so I sometimes see the comings and goings of my neighbors, and I ponder important questions like: What if the old guy and the young guy are the same person? Evidence #1: I have never seem them together. Evidence #2: I think they drive the same truck. (I’m not […]

stress free cat app

Sunday, March 24th, 2019

Shoutout and kudos to Neko Atsume, an adorable cat app. (Not new, I know. But now that I am not caretaking for an amazing real-life cat, the app has proven to be a good way to get some cute cat energy into my day.) Things I appreciate: *The low emotional cost. These are not my […]

important door art update

Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

We have a winner in the ‘who will leave their Christmas door decoration up the longest’ contest! 3rd place: ‘Tis the Season — This technically true sign was taken down last Saturday, right before St. Patrick’s Day. 2nd place: Red Berry Wreath — Starting to show its age a little, but who isn’t? Just came […]

“love lives on”

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

“Love lives on, in every blade of grass, butterfly of spring, and the return of the birds. In the end, that is all there is and ever was.” (The quote came from a calendar, years back, and a quick internet search doesn’t turn anything up in terms of attribution.) It always seems perfect for this […]
