    2022-07-05 Welcome to July and the Conclusion to “Who Cares”

    Well, friends… we’ve delicately tip-toed into July and are officially in the second half of 2022. Here’s what I know on this fine Tuesday (that feels like a Monday) after the long holiday weekend.  4th of July was ok, but I’m so over the fireworks? I thought the economy was hurting? Not according to the […]

    2022-04-13 Who Cares?

    Today I’m raging about my missing iris plants and asking myself who the fuck in my life will actually care about how I feel about this or anything else. Really.  I’m upset that I haven’t written anything decent in months and who cares. I’m angry that I’m the only one in my household that pays […]

    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 […]

    2020-05-24 Sushi Sunday Anyone? 🍣

    We had a glorious thunderstorm last night (apparently) and I woke at the end of that, happy to hear the rain as I’ve done some planting of annuals in pots the last week or so and every day it rains is a day I don’t have to. Thanks Universe! I also went back to sleep […]

    2020-05-04 A Zone 7 Beauty Thriving in Zone 5

    (Happy Star Wars Day Friends.. May the Force be with you today and always!) 😘 It’s a rainy Monday in Nebraska and my list of tasks never seems to lighten up. Instead of going there, though, and dwelling on the endless caravan of sideshow attractions, I’m gonna sit in the dirt and marvel at the […]

    2020-04-26 Sunday Un-Status

    Well.. today is the actual deadline for getting my thesis submitted for a formal format check but since I sent that off last week, I’ve already got my reply. There are changes I have to make because it’s an official university document. Some of the choices I made for section headers for the 5 sections […]

    2020-04-25 Just Another Rainy Saturday in April

    It could be any rainy day. It could be any April day. It could be any other day in the known and unknown calendars of the universe. But it’s not. It’s today. I didn’t have my walk today and just a little bit ago I had to take my Fitbit off cuz the battery is […]

  • 2019-08-29 Cage Match with Ornamental Grass

    It’s late in the day for me to be doing the treadmill thing and trying to come up with something to write about. I guess I don’t have to, but it feels so necessary. It’s the end-times after all, we need all the unverifiable documentation that we can get. Jim gets home from work and […]

    2019-05-26 The Start of Something Beautiful

    I’ve spent a good deal of quality time with my garden this weekend. I’m behind schedule for the year as I normally would like to have all my veggies and annuals in the ground shorty after Mother’s Day (by that day all threat of overnight frost has passed). This year was a little different as […]

    2018-07-27 Harvest in July

    Yesterday I helped one of my sisters move out of her house and into an apartment. Three hours of hauling overfilled boxes and trash bags and furniture into and out of a I haul and up a flight of stairs. Aside from our mom being there with one carload of stuff that was at her […]
