Apologies & Update

  My Dear Reader! I’m so sorry I missed my post last night! It’s a rarity to go a post day without at least putting up a [Fail] post! I’m sorry to do that! Nothing is wrong, I’m just extraordinarily overbooked. I’m currently serving on a town committee that has me in meetings until late…

[Fail] Hit the Day Wall

  Welp, I’ve run out of day today. I spent my day chasing every task, and now I’m up against a deadline that I can’t push back any further. And when I’m done, I’ll need to go to bed because I have a very early wake-up tomorrow. And so, I’m forced to put this [Fail]…

[Fail] The First Cold Day

  Just like the first warm Spring day must come and be celebrated, the first truly cold day must come, too. It’s been an evening for hiding under blankets, figuring out where “the good warm house socks” are, and falling asleep on the couch for no real good reason otherthan “it’s cold! Why is it…

[Fail] Not my fault this time!

The internet has been down all evening here, coming up again in fits and starts, never remaining for more than a few minutes. I hoped to get some Quiet Thoughts in today, but it would seem that the technology gods are conspiring against me. I am pecking this out on my phone, a task that…

Sometimes, Sleep Wins

Photo: Birthday month rolls on with fun gifts from my sister that came in the mail yesterday! I think I’ve decided that I like pins. I didn’t know it until I started collecting a few and now they are my thing. The Maryland one is especially beautiful and well-made. They are going on my nerdy…

[Short Post] Past My Bedtime

  Seeing as it’s my birthday month and it would seem that all my bestest friends around here all have their birthdays this week and next, I was out tonight with one of my favorite most bestest friends. It’s been a few hours of giggling and laughing and talking and, well, I’m tired. Prolonged belly-laughs will…

[Fail] One More Week of This

Photo: Our new CSA has a blackberry bramble where we get to pick our own blackberries. They are absolutely without a doubt the most delicious things you’ve ever eaten. What a very pleasant surprise and absolute joy to walk the row with my two little boys and they stuff themselves on the things. The berries…

[Short Post] Comin’ Up Due

Photo: Shoutout to my friend Marney Mae over at The Salted Banana, one of my favorite blogs on the web because I love her pictures and thoughts so very much. I do believe that the nasturtium in my flower boxes are now second generation from the seeds she sent me last year. They are breathtaking…

[Fail] Again, I know

    I’m so sorry, Dear Reader. For the second Friday in a row, I’ve gotta step away and be cool. It was another week of challenges, capped off today with good news (I have a new freelancing client! Yay!) but then ended with a lot of nonsense and, ultimately, a fight with my husband….

[Bloggy Fail] ‘Twas a Long Week

  I so don’t want to put up a fail post tonight, Dear Reader. They seem to come in clusters, don’t they? It’s a bad habit. I’m sorry. But truth be told, it was one of those weeks where the jar was drained and drained with very little to fill it. For all that I…
