Fill Your Holes

This evening, I’ve been thinking about what holes I have been trying to fill these past few months. Sure, it’s nice to have fun stuff. Things that make your space feel beautiful, feel like “you” (…that’s a whole other blog post I will probably never delve into because it’s a very deep rabbit hole. And …

I Was Assaulted By A Visor

Friday evening before sunset: Time for the family scenic drive out into the country where I listen to my son and father complain about the improper grating of the gravel roads as I enjoy the view of the vast open spaces. The three of us got into the truck- The Teenager was in charge of …

Dueling Cantaloupe

Welcome to another mish mash post where I don’t have anything super specific to write about but I’m going to ramble on about bits and pieces of my week. But that’s what you come here for, right? Here are some topics we will cover…and probably a few others because I always go rogue (in no …

Why is Hannibal Lecter Such a Big Fan of Fava Beans?

It’s Best to Seize the Day After 1PM

I had a plan for this morning- forego my usual routine: tea, medicine, food, and lounging for a few hours to instead get dressed, coat my arms and legs in insect repellent and drive away to walk the Lehigh Portland Trails while the weather was still nice. …do you spot the numerous problems with my …

Hey There, Stranger

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’m not even sure where to start, to be quite honest- so I’ll start with I haven’t been great lately. I haven’t wanted to write. Knit. Take pictures. See much of anyone. Go anywhere. Or partake in actual verbal conversations, though the ones I’ve engaged in lately have managed …

BDSM Bugs

If you are easily offended or of a delicate nature, abort reading this post immediately. This requires an incredibly odd sense of humor and a fair helping of morbid curiosity. So what I’m saying is Mom, if you’re still reading this, it’s on you- my hands are clean. I thought I was going to have …
