Good Karma

I had an interesting experience on my way home today. I was coming down our street and this old woman was waving frantically from the ground. She’d fallen (had a cane) with a bag of raspberry bush cuttings and could barely speak a lick of english. She’d fallen into the raspberry bush and that had […]

I Miss Lazy Days

The month of May was a bit stressful for me. Lots going on, lots of endings, lots of beginnings, lots of getting into the swing of things, lots of other demands on my time that having freedom to myself hasn’t really happened (something both the Beau and I are trying to figure out because we […]

Silver Spoons

I didn’t realize how busy I’ve been until I log in here and realize it’s been nearly two weeks since I wrote last. I’ve been busy with things, with life. While I love my new job, I’ve been doing a lot of reading. It’s kind of mind draining after a while; enough so that I […]

Made-up word and all. I really don’t give myself enough credit for the type of person I am or try […]

The Worst Way

…to spend Christmas is heaving over a toilet. I don’t know if it was something I ate, a 24-hour bug, something caught from a friend a week earlier, but it has been a really long time since I’ve puked my guts out. I wish I could say it was because I party hard the night […]

Reflection on 2015

It’s December. And what do I typically do during this month? I reflect. And quite honestly, this year royally sucked. When you get down to the nitty gritty, I didn’t accomplish anything that I had hoped to do this year. Instead I went through an emotional rollercoaster of hell, and somehow, someway, I’ve come out […]
