Bucket List: Go Pack Go

Totally off topic, but totally necessary: I am officially going to my first football (American) game, and it is going to be in Green Bay to watch my team play the Chicago Bears! This is bar none one of the best things I’ve purchased in years. And it’s going to be the season opener for […]

Kitty Birthday

Thorin Oakenkitten is 1 year old today! April Fools Day, and it’s his birthday. So, of course, he’s getting extra treats and lots of extra love (as though he weren’t 100% spoiled all the rest of the time, too). And he’s just the cutest kitty-cat that I’ve ever had for the moment. All in all, […]

Bibliophile…or: Book-Geek

If there is one thing that defines me above all others, it would be that I am a bibliophile or a book-lover. And collector. Let’s be honest: I just love having books, and so I’ve collected and amassed a minor hoarded treasure-trove of them. That image is not of my books (mine are not so […]

Pillows & Comfort

You know how there’s always that one person who has like…15 pillows on their bed? And how it looks like 1/2 the bed is taken up by pillows when you look at it? That’s what this is, to look at my photo there. I certainly never wanted to be that person. Because it seems so […]

The Hardest Days

Originally posted on The Slavic Polytheist:
Are when I have to say goodbye to my baby cat. It was a horrifically hard day. My Rose passed away today. It’s been a rough week, because we set up the appointment on Monday, after her kidneys started failing on Sunday night. But she’s comfortable and now there…

Apartment Hunting

It’s that lovely time of the year and in life where I need a new apartment. I hate apartment hunting and looking for a new apartment. I like the act of looking itself. By that I merely mean, I like to look at layouts, at apartments, studios, houses, etc. That’s the fun part. The logistics […]

Prynhawn Da

Or more so written out in English for clear understanding: Good Afternoon I mentioned a while back about wanting to learn more about Welsh mythology. Part of that is just my long-term interest in Wales in general, and also a long-standing interest in “Celtic” mythology. Yeah, of course I know that there’s no such thing […]

Fuzzy Bad Feeling

You know that weird feeling in the back of your mind? That one that’s a warning and just tells you to be careful. That thought that something is just wrong or just not right? Well, I’ve been feeling that for about a week now. Something lurking and just bad in the back of my mind […]

Apartment & Domovoi

Way back several years ago I posted first about the domovoi and about what he means to Slavic folklore. I’ve even posted a few times about my own nerves in regards to this particular spirit or entity. Because while not traditionally the most frightening of creatures from Slavic folklore and myth, there’s a lot to […]

Apartment Cleaning

Updating on the last post: I should probably not wait on cleaning this long again. I finished the living room successfully in cleaning up all my stuff. So goal accomplished for today. Next weekend I’ll tackle a few boxes in my room. That’s going to be a multi-week process (because admittedly that room has gotten […]
