I’d love to tell you that I feel happy and light this first day of spring. But huge piles of snow and ice outside make that whole “happy spring” thing kind of hard to digest. To tell you the truth, I don’t really feel like writing this post at all. I’m restless and irritable for…Continue Reading “TToT – Welcome, Spring. I guess.”
It’s a good thing I didn’t make a New Year’s resolution to post here more. Somehow I got out of the habit of delivering any finished product to this page. It’s not for lack of ideas or inspiration; I have a ton of things drafted and scribbled in my notebooks. They somehow just don’t make…Continue Reading “Hello. It’s Been A While. (A Ten Things of Thankful Post)”
Sunday evening again. My least favorite time to write a TToT post. Why, then, does it seem that I’m always doing mine on Sunday evening? I thought I might skip this week because I have been sick. The yearly mandatory bout with bronchitis. I tried not to let it get away from me. But it…Continue Reading “Two Days of Rest – #10Thankful”
I used to hate eggplant. I think it has something to do with an overcooked eggplant Parmesan somewhere in my youth. But eggplant being much like anything else, once we have a bad experience, we tend to forever loathe and avoid the offending situation – or vegetable, as the case may be. Since joining our local…Continue Reading “Hidden Richness – A Soup of the Week Post”
I believe I am standing in motion. I worked on a thousand things all week, produced results, and yet I somehow feel as though I have accomplished little because none of my projects can be moved to the “finished” list. But maybe finished does not always equal successful (or vice versa) and just being in process is quite a good thing…Continue Reading “#10Thankful – Standing in Motion”
Chef loved the markets in the early morning. He loved the sound of the water slapping the docks nearby and the gulls crying overhead, the quiet bustle of the merchants unpacking and preparing for the day under the soft glow of naked light bulbs, the chill in the air waiting anxiously for the sun to…Continue Reading “Six Sentence Stories – Inspiration”
So my blog and I both had birthdays this week. My blog is four years old. Imagine that. And me? Well, I’m four and then some. Birthdays have a way of prompting retrospection, don’t they. At least for me. I often find myself reflective around birthdays – take time to consider where I’ve been, where…Continue Reading “#10Thankful – Another Year Older”
I have to be totally honest here. I do not like writing my #10Thankful post on a Sunday evening. And yet, here I am again doing just that. *sigh* So while I am very thankful for so many things, I’m feeling a bit petulant about the whole thing because, well, I would much rather have…Continue Reading “#10Thankful – Sharks and Such”
While it was my intent to have my thankfuls ready to go on Friday evening, here I am on Sunday afternoon marveling at how full my days have been. We’ve had a great week here, starting with Zilla’s birthday celebrations last weekend. If you saw my very brief post last weekend, you know how very…Continue Reading “#10Thankful – Home and Family”
There is nothing quite like a good rainy day.
OK, it’s not actually raining right now, but it’s cool and cloudy and the threat is present. And I , for one, am pretty glad for it. First of all, I love the rain (provided I’m not actually out in it getting wet, of course). Second, my allergies would love for the rain to put some of this pollen at bay so I can breathe.
Something about a cool, rainy weekend just feels like permission to curl up with books and movies and letters or maybe stare out the window and do some writing.
