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
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.

Left work 30 minutes early with a clear conscience. Had dinner; piece of chocolate for dessert. Bed. Bliss.
Ha! I've had dinner and it's not eight yet! Celebrating the weekend and having the all clear to leave things in disarray. Listening to Florence and the Machine on my bed. Life is good.
Wild Rice Bistro and Old Crow Coffee shop have attached themselves to my heart. And I appreciate that there are a handful of people I can be at ease with. I feel as if I'm nearly always navigating, so it's really spectacular when I can just trust the people and processes and feel the joy … Continue reading Over dinner and drinks
I think my dad put it best when he said, "Sammy, you need a little house and a big dog." I'm trying to do too much, I know. And physical representations of home are not quite all there; I feel a welcome visitor but not yet a true resident. Regardless, I did enjoy playing some … Continue reading Creative measures and endeavors
