Goodbye 2020 Don’t Let The Door Hit Ya

Goodbye 2020.

We are done. I am over you. I will never look back on you with fondness. I’m breaking up with you forever… 2020 you were the worst year ever! Okay, that might be a stretch. I’m sure there were years that were seriously terrible in comparison. How about… 2020 you were certainly the weirdest and most annoying year ever. Continue reading

Promises Kept

It’s been 14 years. I’ve kept my promise. It’s important that once you swear to something that you stand by your word. Promises kept. I keep my promises.

Remember a long time ago, before technology, when it wasn’t easy to be traced? When a snow day meant gathering at your friend’s house, the friend where both parents worked, and drinking hot chocolate while making really stupid crank phone calls? It was great! Continue reading

Covid-19 Masks You Are Doing It Wrong

Covid-19 masks – you are doing it wrong!

“The average person touches their face two or three thousand times a day… three to five times every minute. In between that we’re touching doorknobs, water fountains, and each other.” Dr. Erin Mears | Contagion

Stop. Touching. Your. Face.

Look, I get it. I don’t think there is a single person who actually enjoys wearing a face mask, whether it be a homemade reusable washable cloth mask, a disposable medical style mask, a super duper N95 mask or a simple two layer bandanna wrapped around the head. Nobody likes it. Continue reading

Sparking My Joy With Marie Kondo

I admit it. I don’t own any Marie Kondo’s books, not even the original The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing that changed the world. But thanks to the internet, I have been reading the tidying journeys of others, drinking the KonMarie Method koolaid and it is indeed a life changer. It sparks joy. Indeed.

But even joy has it’s downfalls. Or, better put, it’s struggles. Continue reading

Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie Palooza

Thanksgiving is still a week away but already I am fighting the urge to put up my Christmas decorations. Normally I am the first one to mock Christmas displays going up in stores before Halloween and the last two years they have been sneaking in at the end of Continue reading

The Smell Of August

The Smell Of August

The month of August has a definite smell to it… late summer mixed with a hint of fall and a dash of sweltering humidity,. It’s the kind of heat that when combined with a massive dew point is basically Mother Nature giving you a free steam bath and facial. Continue reading

Into The Night

The world is a weird and wonderful place. And thanks to the internet, we are no longer restricted to writing bad poetry while sipping wine and listening to vinyl records. Instead, we can blog something and post it Into The Night…

My Friend, I think about you often. I miss you. Things went awkward but there was no fault on either side. Sometimes people just shift and sway, move away, become someone else. We grow, we change. It happens.

I wonder how you are, I hear things that may or may not be true. I don’t pay too much attention since it might not even pertain to you. I hope you are well, but if you are not, I wish only good things for you and a change to the plot.

So if you ever read this My Friend, tomorrow or next year, I hope you know that despite the ending, I wish you nothing but good cheer.

The world is a weird and wonderful place… and I thank it for letting me know you for a short while. Be well My Friend. Be well and try to smile.

and so, I send this… Into The Night
