    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]

    2022-02-02 Let’s Do the Time Warp Again…

    Time warp? Where to?  How about oh-two, oh-two, two-oh, two-oh? It’s not too far. Only two years away.  Only two years away? You don’t say!  Yes, Two years from this day was the day little Miss SugarCookie finally got her way.  Which makes today… her two year anniversary!!  That’s right people. I’m celebrating my 2 […]

    2021-06-07 Reactive 🩸

    “Reactive” is the result of the COVID antibody test performed by the Red Cross from my latest blood donation. It’s now standard for them to do the test on every donation. The explanation for my reactive result is that I have antibodies consistent with a person who has had the COVID vaccine, but did not […]

    2021-05-25 What’s In the News… 🗞

    Happy mask mandate expiry day! It’s been a while since I’ve walked/written/had time to think about the world at large. Life is that way sometimes I guess.  The last time I checked in I was pouring over my stabilizing good mood and trying to decide what, exactly, it was that made the tide turn in […]

    2021-05-16 Another Week in the Rearview

    It’s been a strange week.  A few days ago I had a call with my friend HL who lives in Denver, who I haven’t seen since my wedding in February of 2020.. You know, that last month of what I’m now calling “The Great Before.” Before COVID spread the world and took over the airwaves […]

    2021-04-30 When they Ask What Superpower You Want, Don’t Be Too Hasty

    I daydream sometimes about what it would be like if I could control time. That’s not exactly right. It’s not a daydream of control. It’s not a daydream at all actually. It’s a longing for time to slow down enough for me to enjoy things at my own pace. My own pace is apparently slow.. […]

    2021-04-17 On the Eve of the Next Big Adventure

    If I had to pick a theme for my life lately it would be “Practicing the Art of Letting Go.” So many things have slid off my radar and the biggest thing I feel like I’ve let go of is worrying about all of it. In that sense, it’s been quite positive.  It’s definitely not […]

    2021-04-07 Dirt Therapy and Other Vaccination Day Musings…

    I haven’t written much for a few days. But there’s not much to write about. 🤷‍♀️ Spring is in the air and I’m slowly getting into the groove of garden work. This is going to be my year for enjoying one of my favorite activities. This year I don’t have to balance a job with […]

    2021-03-05 Prepping for a Celebratory Weekend 🎁🎉🎂🎉❤️

    It was a good run.. a 33 day streak of posting to this blog. And the day before yesterday I was gonna lose my step streak and declared “no way in hell I’m losing my blogging streak.” Guess I forgot to knock on some wood and the Universe said “that’s ehat you think.” What DID […]

    2021-01-17 Reminiscing With My Daughter About My Daughter

    Day 2 waking up with cringe-worthy cramps. But.. I’m not going to let it keep me down today. I can do better. I have a little time to collect my thoughts and get my act together. Yesterday I may have “let go” and tried not to let my mood control the day. I may not […]
