About cake and sunrise (a nothing post with pictures)

You want to know what happens to me when I eat carbs, like cake?

Anyway the cake yesterday was sooooooo good. Yum. I may get another one for Easter. 😳

Fresh start

I woke up this morning intent on finishing part iii of my Derailment series (part i, and part ii) and decided…nah.

I’m sick to death of that topic.

Doesn’t mean I won’t finish it at all; I just need a break. It’s about writing and the challenges I faced during my climb out of the abyss in getting words out of my head and onto a screen. I love writing about writing…even if my actual writing is nothing but drivel. 😉

But that post can wait.

Instead I flipped a switch in my brain to get out of this funk. Seeing sun in the sky on the horizon helps. Several other things attributed to this change in mental focus as well: Continue reading “Fresh start”

Beckoning sunshine during lock-down

I’m not feeling it this year. I’m mostly just annoyed. 🙄 Continue reading “Outdoor youth sports and the weather gods”

Healthy(er) eating in time for spring

Sam inspired me today. (Well he often inspires me but today I actually ended up doing something about the inspiration…) 🙂

He lives in Michigan which isn’t too far away from where I live, across the border, so we experience similar weather. As he said, this winter was brutal…but signs of spring are finally, slowly, emerging if the constant gushing of water out of our basement sump pump is an indicator at all. I mean, there was a LOT of ice and snow that had to melt and seep into the soil (and basements)…

We waterproofed the house a few years ago (and are still paying for it) but we have a dry basement. At least the teen’s PS4 is safe…😂

ANYWAY.
