Anthony and I have been feeling a little under the weather this week. He has a cold, and possibly a sinus infection. I took him to urgent care. They tested him for both covid and influenza–negative on each. But the malaise and myalgias are real, and we have both been sleeping a lot.
We also have been watching more TV. …read more here
Here is a really nice video. I listened to it yesterday while I did the dishes. There were a lot of dishes to do, and then to make dinner. He brings up some excellent points. I smiled. It validated me for working less and having more time for my home. …read more here
Something happened in the realm of Spirit, and I wish to record it for posterity. Yesterday, I was home. The electrician had just left. Anthony was swimming at practice because it was a school holiday. I was called to a Council meeting. …read more here
Most of the time we live in a hell of our own making.
I’ve wondered how my dreams have turned into nightmares–marriages that went south, careers/calling that took away sleep and free time, buying my first home and having it end up with cracks everywhere and neighbors who didn’t respect my boundaries (parking space). …read more here

How much was this shirt?
It was marked down at the discount store. …read more here
This is an old picture. Today is the day I renew the image licensing agreement for all the photos I use in creating this blog post. With the exemption of the occasional meme, every image is ‘legit’, bought and paid for. I have an incredible deal, an excellent relationship with the company, since I’ve been with them for over ten years. …read more here
Yesterday, I wasn’t thinking about my future, even through the deadline for the mandate is two days away.
I focused on connecting with people.
I have a wonderful African Violet plant. I’ve kept it alive for eighteen years. It’s so happy here in my kitchen window, that it’s made babies. Lots of them. I’ve had a batch of little babies in pots, growing, taking root, and one was just starting to bloom. …read more here
