Rain and Kindness

It’s been raining off and on all day and the trees are blooming. Now I’m home with the family, watching Anna and the Apocalypse, and visiting with our three guinea pigs. We take each one out and give them a treat and cuddles every night and at other random times. They are happy guineas. I’ve […]

Looking Toward the Future

Sorry I haven’t been blogging at all. I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking. I’ve been analyzing my life forwards and backwards and figuring out where to go from here. I wanted to make my living as a blogger but I had to realize that wasn’t going to happen so now I’m just here […]

Cozy Winter Planning

It has been downright frigid here in the Pacific Northwest this week. Many of us have finally gotten to that time of the year in the northern hemisphere where we need to wear more layers, turn up the heat, and snuggle with our loved ones. A co-worker gave me some orchids and I was worried […]

Rainy Days Are Here

The rainy season has started in Oregon. I love it so much. I’m the kind of person who will listen to thunderstorms on Youtube even when it’s sunny out. I’m also the type to listen to Christmas carols anytime of the year if I want a peaceful, cozy vibe. It’s all about the ambiance. I […]

Or at least it’s not now, but maybe it never was. I like to contemplate, to daydream, to ponder. Covid slowed me down even more […]

Night Thoughts to Share

Sprinklers ringing out in the darkness heard through an open window. The whir of the fan and the quiet breathing of my partner beside me. The changes of our life together spreading, blossoming… stagnation breaking. Clean slates and moving forward after stuck-ness. Nothing is perfect ever. But it doesn’t have to be. All I crave […]

Summer Nights & Aging

As soon as I was out of school and summer vacation was a thing of the past, I realized, though I’m a summer baby, summer is my least favorite season. I don’t like heat or bright sunlight and my Irish skin only burns and then turns pale again. It’s almost 7pm and it’s still two […]

Life Lately

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Life is really just crazy. I’ve been searching for writing jobs because that’s what I love to do. I did get a contract with study.com awhile back but the pay was out of proportion to the amount of work. I did, however, learn a lot about SEO and inclusive writing. Now is […]
