What Summer Should Be

Earlier this summer (back before all the smoke & wildfires), back at the beginning of July, I took a trip down to Des Moines. It’s south of Seattle and has a little marina and some nice breezes in the evening. It’s beautiful and has some great views if you catch the right time of day […]

Rainy Reprieve

The last three weeks have been miserably hot and terrible. Like I posted, just awful and full of heat and my musing about my health being adversely affected by the ungodly heat.

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…
