Intermission

Trevor and I started watching, "Eternals" and decided to take an intermission. Which consists of Trevor making supper. ...and me hopping on here to share, what I feel, has been a big step forward. I started therapy with a rough list of what I wanted to work on/through. Our first session, Tasha said I care …

Bring Nature Inside

...I am brilliant. I've been saying for months that I want our house to look like nature threw up in it- without actual vomit or decay. BUT TONIGHT, I FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE MY DREAM HAPPEN! BECAUSE I AM BRILLIANT! It began with looking up various patterns on Ravelry. I wanted something planty to …

New Year’s Witchcraftery

Atlas Obscura is one of my VERY favorite things. They are a great source for all the weird and wonderful what have yous that exist in the world. Of course, I signed up for their daily emails. You wouldn't believe all the good stuff I learn and forget. Today, New Year's Eve 2021, Atlas Obscura …

Do Saints Get Free Sweatshirts?

On the drive back from running errands Tuesday, I told Trevor there are times I wish I was like everyone else. Naturally, I said this after he complimented me in the very best of ways. On a good day, it absolutely would have been drawer dropper. But my mental health wasn't great so instead of …

TV Lies. Vikings Wore Hats.

Trevor and I have been watching Vikings for about a month(?) now. We were looking for something more...long term. A show we could become at least mildly invested in. He had already watched it years back, but I said sure, why not? It has popped up quite a bit in the, "SHOWS WE THINK YOU …

Transition

Loss. It comes in many forms. With it, grieving. Who has many faces. My son has struggled for the past few months. Because this isn't just my story, I don't feel the details are necessary. After a conversation he and I had Thursday, along with events on Friday, it became clear he could no longer …

Wintering

This book hit me. Hard. As a human who both loves cycles (the ebb and flow, beginning and ending), and is a human who has depression and anxiety, how could it not resonate? Not to mention how beautifully written it is. I've been having conversations lately-ish about how we don't listen to our bodies. We …

Wally Smells Like Balls

In this moment, I simply exist. Depression? I don't think so. My stomach has been wonky all day. I worked a few hours of overtime this week (in my pajamas, of course). And I am the parent of a very headstrong, stubborn teenager who seems to have to learn lessons the hard way. Sigh. These …

You Want To Know What I’ve Been Doing?

HIHIHIHIHIHIHIHIHIHI!!! How are you guys?! It's so good to be back. The bean fields are being harvested (which is fun to watch!). A flock of twenty plus turkey hens are coming up to our yard to eat the food Trevor scattered for them say hi. He and I decided it would be a good idea …

No Extra Charge For Country TV

Oh, friends. It's nice to be back. We've had a couple of unexpected changes lately. But now that a "new normal" is in the making, I am slowly making time, once again, for the things I love. Like writing blog posts to clog the great internet void. Therapy for me. Entertainment for you. What have …
