The circumstances and feelings surrounding this gift are a bit much to fit into this post I'm doing on the fly. However, it has stolen my heart. And if I had to take only one item, besides the essentials (traveling light, I would say that would be, for me as follows: being dressed, with shoes, … Continue reading limit: 1
I feel so incredibly privileged today and every day to get to work with some wonderful humans. Today, November 7th, Diwali was celebrated, and I felt warm all over 🙂 I also have to say that my recent relocation and reduction in technical temptations has done me a world of good so far. The light … Continue reading Diwali
I'm really tired, but feel like today should get credit for being a decent one. I had a Kit-Kat and a hot cup of tea for a treat at work, stayed cozy and had a really good stir fry for dinner. I'm moving again on the weekend and really looking forward to having my own … Continue reading lumos
This Thursday night was great. We are almost a week into September and that word is almost returned to my vocabulary. I only stumbled twice today in a full day of leaving messages for people, ...'Be sure to leave the date and time of your call...' Ok. Well, then... "Hello! This is Sam... Today is Aug-- … Continue reading Thursday convo:
My succulent has expired. Kinda ironic 🙂 Today was very solid otherwise... Got everything done/organized for the day at work -- Maysome made me a cup of tea, which was just perfect! Made it home on the bus without incident. Dinner was amazingly restorative, with the house to myself, clean kitchen, good tunes and fresh food that … Continue reading I killed my plant
Life, it seems, is never dull. I don't think I've been bored for more than 5 minutes for all of recent history, by which I mean as much and as far back as I can remember, and most especially the past 3 years.... In the beginning of 2015, I moved out of my volunteer role … Continue reading Summers, growing pains
I'm craving normal conversation and hugs. And comfort and optimism. I woke up this morning and felt awful, decided to take a sick day and fell back asleep until noon. Porridge for brunch, cleaned up a bit and now I have to attempt more adult-ing activities, namely grocery shopping and house hunting, and maybe I'll … Continue reading 4:53
Friday was good. It was satisfying, because I got done what needed to get done, including closing some files, prepping information packages, updating data, and getting some paper people ready for archiving. It was just an ordinary, comfortable Friday. I left work around 6pm and went to check out the New West night market on … Continue reading Vendredi, etc.
Without further ado, and in no particular order: Talking with friends, laughing with family. Popcorn and movies. Sunny weekends. Rainy weekends. Blankets and books. Artistry, warmth. Contentment. Green spaces, wild places. Community. Goodness. Last but certainly not least: My headphones and fiddle are just too fantastic for words.
I made it through today. Go me. It was uneventful, but very hot, the kind of hot that had me daydreaming about swimming in the ocean even though when Rube and I went last week it was FREEZING -- and it has to be pretty freakin' frigid for me to say that, in my past … Continue reading Hooray!
