My younger sister has moved home for the foreseeable future. With her, one puppy, two kittens, and so. many. boxes. Boxes in the living room, in the kitchen, in the basement. Extra food in the pantry, extra spices in the drawer. And so much tea. We are blessed to have her back. We had a … Continue reading A welcoming

Fish tank moving day, round two.
One of the tasks that gave me the most stress throughout the flooring process was the need to move my 20 gallon fish tank into a room in which they would be safe from whatever magic the builders had to do to the floors. Big magic requires big space. The process: Remove plants from tank. … Continue reading Fish tank moving day, round two.
August... is an incredibly hard month for me, usually. It brings back memories of people that I miss. This year, those memories are bitter sweet. My house is being worked on. Things are coming back together. Rooms look like rooms again. And, in the time of 2020, I'm able to call loved ones and check … Continue reading to august
Sometimes you just need a little angst

So, we're beginning the construction process. During covid, which makes me anxious. True to self, I stress bought bath bombs. They should arrive within the … Continue reading
July Week Three.
In which I talk fish tanks, plant updates, and TV show binges.
July. Week one.
The first week of July has passed, and I am thankful for so much. As much as I wish that this year had played out differently, I am beginning to realize just how kind others can be. Last month was one of the most difficult months of my entire life. But, many friends and neighbors … Continue reading July. Week one.
Most of the trees are gone. I haven't written in a while. And, I still miss the trees. Workers brought them down months ago. What is left is less than half of what we used to have. There is more sun. Thee birds are more noticeable. I've become a lot more accustomed to my home, … Continue reading Rooted.
