That's Intriguing

The Dilemma of Food Waste

I felt myself slightly horrified the other day, while overhearing random conversations in the office. It made me realize a few things too, the generational differences between baby boomers and millennials (I am an elder millennial apparently), and the costs verses waste predicament when it comes to food. What exactly did I over hear? “I […]

Short Oregon Trip

In September, we took a short trip (exactly 3 days), to visit my father and his future wife. I haven’t seen him in about 8 years and was extremely nervous for the most part. I took the Fiance with me as a way to get him introduced to that part of the family. The trip […]

Meet Willow

Willow came to live with us in August. She’s about 8 months old now, loves yarn, loves giving her people love nips, and is best friends with her brother Tyr. I thought Smudge would be happy to have another feline friend, but she’s not really bonded with her. Instead, Smudge will walk up to Willow, […]

A Week For Myself

With how busy things have been between family and work the last four months, I haven’t taken much time for myself. Not from a vacation standpoint. So, I took this week off. It’s something I think is important to do. The last few times that I’ve had time off, it was for something that was […]

Four Months? Oops!

Well, almost four months. I needed to unplug. I couldn’t necessarily unplug as much as I wanted too, but not feeling obligated to write and share things felt nice. Did a lot happen? Yep. And I’m not even sure where to start, or if its worth back tracking to explain things. There were weddings, life […]

Paint Nite – Polar Bear in the Night?

I am making up the name of the painting because I cannot for the life of me remember it. We’ve talked off and on about participating in a paint nite, so I finally said, why not. The first step was getting tickets. Now we think we’d like to do this at least once a month, […]

Rubber Duckies!

This has been a fairly productive weekend. We’ve been working on cleaning the rooms out from our house rearranging project (two trips to charity so far). We’re nearly done with downsizing things to more realistic methods. We also spent a lot of time outside on Saturday because this last week has been the Golden Days […]

Follow My Light

I took some time and made a hopefully pretty picture earlier this weekend because I haven’t done anything like this in a while. I was going through old files and ran across a bunch of renders I had done, but never took to completion. So, I figured, why not? I think I rendered this a […]

Let’s Try This

I never seem to plan things accordingly when I get ready to start on a new project, so I found myself having some fun with this new template builder, managed to reset everything in my database (and lost all of my images as a result). It’s going to take me a bit to rebuild the […]

A House to Ourselves (Also Umbreon)

So, life has been interesting. This week, I learned that I do not know how to handle the types of stress I’ve been handling. Or I mistakenly thought I had a handle on my stress, when in truth, I really don’t and it’s causing me some hesitation and making me wonder if I should seek […]
