    2023-01-29 Birdwatching in the Morning

    Welcome to the pre month end catch-all January wrap-up. In today’s “episode” I’ll be talking about books and not-books, podcasts, TV shows, food, publishing, and the premature results of my January goals. Whoa.. really?!  Yeah… maybe.  How about goals, books, and not-books. Reading one book in January was one of my goals (after failing at […]

    2022-11-05 What is life…

    …but a series of explorations and experiments. Some turn out great and some don’t. Each, in a way, informs the next. Maybe you do the same experiment over and over, changing a few of the variables each time to see how it alters the outcome. You might even do the same thing in the exact […]

    2021-09-02 New Month, Same Ole Miss SugarCookie 🍑

    We’ve officially turned over the month are on the fast track to pumpkin spice latte season and sweater weather.  I’m doing pretty good this week and trying to stay focused on my to-do list while balancing managing the household and nurturing my interpersonal relationships.  If I haven’t written about the resurgence of the lunch/happy hour […]

    2021-08-30 Confession Time… (dun-dun-dunnnn)

    Confessions? There are confessions to be made?  Well. Yes.  I think so.  Several things have happened this month and I’ve not been writing about this and that like I usually do. One might even say Miss SugarCookie has been AWOL in August. It’s true.  I’ve previously lamented about not feeling like writing or not having […]

    2021-03-02 In Like a Lamb?!… 🐑🔜🦁

    March.. I think the saying is supposed to be “In like a lion and out like a lamb.”  *** According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the weather folklore stems from ancestral beliefs in balance, meaning if the weather at the start of the month was bad (like a roaring lion), the month should end with good […]

    2021-02-25 Trials By Fire 🔥

    It’s early and I don’t want to be up. I also don’t want to lay in bed for one more damn minute thinking about all the things and stuff.  My desire to keep the schedule I’ve set myself for today ends at about 11:30am. I’m not particularly excited about going to CB today. I’m actually […]

    2020-10-07 What Will It Become When Too Much Thought is Involved?

    I’m dipping my toe into figuring out what my days look like now that I’m not working. I’m excited to have more time and my first order of business has been to increase my step goal. I changed the goal on my Fitbit from 12K steps a day to 15K. And I’m not limited walking […]

  • 2019-02-04 Monday Routine Musings

    Welcome to the new morning routine. It’s just hit 8AM and I’ve already been up since about 6:15. So far I’ve finished laundry, gotten my kids to school (new commute is about 25 minutes), and hit the gym. That’s where I am at now on my favorite elliptical machine. If I hit a descent pace, […]
