New year, new goals! We made it through 2020, thank goodness that mess is behind us. I'm hopeful that 2021 lightens the mood of this decade. Please, please let 2021 lighten the mood of this decade. I am so grateful that you take the time to read my blog, and I plan to stick with … Continue reading 2021 bookish goals (and giveaways?)
On December 31, 2019, I passed out on a friend's couch early after working my 6th double shift of the week (or something ridiculous like that). I was awoken at 11:57 pm, so that I could partake in watching the ball drop. I then was told that I had to stay awake for at least … Continue reading A few thoughts on December 2020
We've established that I am normally not very great at keeping up with new hobbies. Typically, I research the heck out of something and then I go for it. All in. Non stop. And then I get bored and I decide that maybe this hobby isn't for me (bullet journaling, anyone?). Anyway, I've recently discovered … Continue reading Not another YouTube rabbit hole…
The day woke me. This morning, I relaxed outside on this deck bundled up in my pink comforter and watched the sun rise. Then, I made a hot mug of coffee, went back to my spot, and waited for the day to begin. There's something different about the air up here on the mountain. There … Continue reading The Mountain Breeze
Today little sister, Pip, Chip, and Pup, go on an adventure. They're moving back to the big city and leaving us in the dust. I'm glad that little sister is spreading her wings and that she's always going to have company, but man am I going to miss them. So, today we moved (mostly) everything … Continue reading Move out day.
Last night, there was a decent amount of rain, this morning, the yard smelled like dirt and dead leaves and the air had a good amount of moisture to it. And the pup, well, he didn't want to come back inside for breakfast.With the fall and the rain bringing out the leaves and the new … Continue reading Mud Puddles
The past week has been a blur. Brain fog strikes again. All I want to do lately is curl up in my bed with the pup and a cup of coffee and read. But, all I've had the energy to do lately is lay in bed. I've done some Christmas shopping, and I can't wait … Continue reading
The beginning of this month was awesome. I got so much work done around the house. I finished a few books and started some new ones. I played with the pup and talked to some good friends and started cooking again. I had energy, and then... I lost it. I haven't been reading or writing … Continue reading the burn out is real
I have fallen victim to the modern convenience of grocery shopping. I don't know much about what's in my favorite foods or where each ingredient comes from. I know so little that every new fact is game changing. I may not be aware of a lot when it comes to foods, but I do enjoy … Continue reading Back into Cooking… maybe.
I have had a taste for soup this season. I've made potato and chicken noodle and tomato. I look forward to making chicken and dumpling soup later this autumn, and trying a new recipe - butternut squash. I've had butternut squash soup once, at a friend's house on New Years Eve 2012, and I want … Continue reading Intentional Soup
