This Post Comes To You From Underneath My Desk

IN CASE YOU THOUGHT I WAS LYING. My face is wrong today. I am self conscious; therefore, this is all you get. Why am I uncomfortably sitting beneath my desk when I have a bed full of blankets that are way more comfortable to hide under, you ask? Because blankets aren’t going to cut it. …

Do People Ever Use Coffee Instead of Milk in Their Cereal?

What. A. Week. AND A BRAND NEW ONE IS STARTING TOMORROW! But, as my friend, Lauren, would say, “That is a problem for future us”. Indeed it is, Lauren. You wise, wise human. I had initially planned to post toward the end of the week but alas. It wasn’t in the cards. But I am …

Tortoise Jerseys

Happy February 13th, 2021. It is Saturday and feels like -4 out. No thank you. The next few days aren’t looking any better, which means the potential for cabin fever is high. Thankfully, I have plenty of knitting projects in the works- Katie’s scarf that should have been done forever ago (I appreciate your patience!), …

This Little Light of Mine

I LOATHE winter. I admit, there is a beauty to it. But I’d enjoy it more if I could spend it laying on a human sized heating rock- as one of my exes suggested years ago. He was not wrong. I miss his humor- he was always good at making me laugh. I don’t hate …

Boujee Hotel Pillows Are The Best

Last year, before the times of Corona where people spent time together and traveled without fear of pestilence, my friend, Nurse Drew, whisked me off to Boston in his shiny new Subaru. Most of you already know about that trip because I bring it up whenever I have a chance. But it’s not my fault- …

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 …

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 …

Love, Antidepressants, and Loafing

I had this great idea for a blog last night as I was drifting off to sleep. As I lay there, I was thinking about how I should text myself so I wouldn’t forget. But it was so good that I had faith I’d remember. …I should have went with my initial reaction. So instead, …

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 …
