recently

on one of the recent morning dog walks, i nearly started crying with gratitude, and simple happiness. i'm so lucky to be able to take time for myself and the dogs, my partner and my house, a bike ride or working from home... i'm so grateful for all of those options...

so weird

my 15-year-old, best friend, jones, is almost very completely deaf. scrolling through the last 179 photos on my phone confirms the fact that he loves being on that side of the camera as much as i do (which is not really any love)... so, i can't share a recent snapshot...

well, there i go

it's that wild hair i get up me arse when i think of something that i should do and then i decide to do it. so, i threw the divi theme on here and will spend the next 100 years tinkering with settings and getting things the way i like them. i'll be moving the blog to...

hooo boy

i don't have any excuses, but i'll make some up! work has been *busy*. i'm on-call every three weeks and that's been kind of a pain, but the company finally decided on an incentive that i like (we get to bank hours for each week). so, i hate it a little less now. home...

something happened

i realized yesterday, while walking to the water cooler at work, that something's taken place over the last year or more? i feel extra-super confident. walking the dogs, making food, making decisions at work, making decisions about the house. specifically, i thought,...

knowledge is power

ever since i figured out why my mood has changed a little, it's easier to identify when i'm about to say something inconsiderate in the online work chat. i've done the yoga swing routine that i posted recently three times now, and i'm getting better at the inversion,...

no party this year

i guess, in all my excitement about getting the house situated and the food blog, i forgot to announce that i'm not having a memorial weekend party this year. i used to joke that it was an excuse to clean the house so it was at least presentable in the dark. there...
