I tend to put a lot of pressure on things that really don't require that much attention. It's a habit of mine that I've been trying to break for the longest time, but sometimes the bad habits win. Often, this comes as a "I can't do x, y, z, until everything else is perfect." I … Continue reading Long story short, it’s still a bad time.
Every single time I sit and try to write, the words don't come. The need to write is there. The all consuming feeling that I must write something overrides my ability to do literally anything else without thinking about how I would write that scene. But, the words don't come. I want to have a … Continue reading just one day
We have gotten a lot of rain lately. And, on the moments when the sun breaks through the outside looks so green and so inviting. I miss long walks through the woods and carefree exploration days. Many of my days have been filled with work, lately. Long hours and lots of inside time. It's been … Continue reading a little calm and a lot of rain
Every year around the middle of April I start to take care of myself a little more. I begin focusing on the aspects of myself which I typically ignore throughout the rest of the year. Usually this means a haircut, painting my nails, and picking up a book or movie for myself. I attempt to … Continue reading a 2021 birthday
For many reasons and maybe none at all, I stepped back from my blog for a while....

I was awoken at 11:57 pm, so that I could partake in watching the ball drop. I then was told that I had to stay awake for at least … Continue reading A few thoughts on December 2020
We've established that I am normally not very great at keeping up with new hobbies. Typically, I research the heck out of something and then I go for it. All in. Non stop. And then I get bored and I decide that maybe this hobby isn't for me (bullet journaling, anyone?). Anyway, I've recently discovered … Continue reading Not another YouTube rabbit hole…
Last night, there was a decent amount of rain, this morning, the yard smelled like dirt and dead leaves and the air had a good amount of moisture to it. And the pup, well, he didn't want to come back inside for breakfast.With the fall and the rain bringing out the leaves and the new … Continue reading Mud Puddles
The past week has been a blur. Brain fog strikes again. All I want to do lately is curl up in my bed with the pup and a cup of coffee and read. But, all I've had the energy to do lately is lay in bed. I've done some Christmas shopping, and I can't wait … Continue reading
