This is about a weekend I spent at home this past summer: Forrest's friends were visiting from Japan. Mom and Dad and I went to Smitty's Osyterbar on the waterfront and I for one revelled in the salty/sunny and scrumptious environs. One night we made pizza for dinner and everyone got a whole pie each... I'll admit, … Continue reading georgia + oysters + pizza
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.

If you know me, you probably are aware that I am not usually in the audience for … Continue reading Hump day
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!
via Daily Prompt: Elevate Forrest came to visit the other day. Time with siblings is good for the soul 🙂 Having reinforcements for dishwashing duty helps too! Retrieving and returning items to their place can prove entertaining when your kitchen is the size of a postage stamp, one of you is going on instinct and … Continue reading Height differential
via Daily Prompt: Dignify I was walking home from work the other day and had a comical moment. Someone came up behind me and I stopped to let them pass. "You are amazing!" they exclaimed, and then disappeared around the corner. If I'm amazing for literally just standing on the side of the road, then … Continue reading Roadside assistance

via Daily Prompt: Grainy I can't help it! Grainy = old film and photos. I don't take many pictures, and in the age of selfies and snapping what's for breakfast, my supply is pretty much non-existent. Still, I'm sure given the right circumstance, I could easily become obsessed with this medium. Nine times out of … Continue reading Past but still present
