Reindeer

This is what I did 2 weeks ago for my weekend away from real life! I went to a Reindeer Farm in Leavenworth, WA. I mean, Leavenworth itself is super fun–tiny Bavarian-inspired village. What’s not to like? So my mom, aunt and I went for a weekend getaway; had fun shopping, wandering and just enjoying […]

“Spring” Cleaning

It’s not even spring, but I’ve been engaging in that time-honored tradition of “spring” cleaning. Which is amusing, because it’s been cold, grey, overcast and rainy around here. So…a little bit like spring, I guess, if we’re being honest. Regardless! Even though I’ve said before how little I hate arbitrary “spring cleaning”, I do like […]

Yearly Hiatus

My yearly hiatus of October no-posts is now over. I just took some time for myself, went low-key and just spent some real time working on myself and enjoying some time with Thorin.

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 […]

What Even is Retrograde?

I’m admittedly a bit of a failure of a witch (okay, I really only dabble in it at that) at figuring out astrological markings and just why moon phases, planetary alignments, gemstone correspondences and the like all have meaning. Admittedly, probably if I’d done more research on “witchcraft” and less on mythology and focused more […]
