Springing into Action

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! As I type, the sun is blazing through the picture window at my back, a welcome change from the cloud-covered rainy days of recent. Every spring I find myself springing into action in new and refreshing ways. Warren is in Thailand and this cat has a full day of play ahead of her, beginning with last minute …

Prepping Positivity

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Well, what can I say other than this past week has been pretty much dictated by my workplace crap. I’ve spent countless hours in meetings and documenting everything that has been transpiring at warp speed. The good news, as I pointed out in last week’s post is that I am beginning to digest the fact that I’m …

Full Spring Ahead

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, I’ve been in a funk all day long, gorging myself on brownie bites topped with over-sized dollops of Jiffy peanut butter. Does it get any better than comfort food? Daylight savings time always messes with me because that whole getting up an hour earlier is bad for my psyche. As is all the crap that continues at …

Happy Monday eve, Journeyer! It’s been a strange week, Friends! I am one of those people doctors refer to as “fit as a fiddle” or “strong as an ox” but this past week has made me double-think those phrases! I came down with Pink Eye the Friday before we left for Beauty’s graduation. Fortunately I’ve had this once before and …

Sounds of Spring!

Outside of my office window the sky is dark and overcast. The air is calm at the moment, but a mixture of hail and rain had been beating against the windows since seven o’clock this morning. I. Am. So. Tired. Of. Winter. Not one who usually complains about the weather, I can honestly say that this year’s marathon mush has …

Spring is Hatching!

A few weeks ago I wrote about the first signs of spring I’d seen. This past week I talked about Punxsutawney Phil, the poor little groundhog that’s been flogged mercilessly in light of Winter’s lingering grip on the Northeast. Warmer weather is coming! It’s quite literally hatching. I found it Friday night at the Tractor Supply Store. Two-week old chicks …

Phil (Punxsutawney) Might Not be a Fraud After All

Oh, the weather outside is frightful… And so, so dreadful… Someone who rarely ever naps, I’ve taken a mid-day snooze nearly every day since daylight savings took effect. Between the new work assignment, which has me up a God-awful fifteen minutes earlier than ever, the pitch black hour I leave in the morning, and the wintry March weather that has …

Sowing Some Happiness

  Just like I do every September, I purchased a bag of tulip bulbs for fall planting. Just like I do every year, I failed to place them in the ground before it began to harden from evening frosts. And just like every Autumn I can recall, there is always an Indian-Summer day or two. I was sure I had …
