It’s all of a sudden like living in sci-fi

January 1, 2014 By In Babble, Blog No Comment

I have no idea why 2014 sounds so much more futuristic to me than 2013 did but it is kind of freaking me out. I was born in 1969. Time has been flying by so fast lately. I remember the 70s in a this vague way that consists mostly of riding my bike around the

Green is Seven and you No Longer Have to Muffin

October 2, 2013 By In Babble 1 Comment

Ya know, I totally get that things change.  I actually like change.  I totally dig new technology, love updated software, like to change my hair and revamp my entire wardrobe based on how I feel and who I feel I am today, this month, this year, whatever.  I like the seasons, like variety in my food,

September Already?

September 2, 2013 By In Babble, Beauty No Comment

Without a doubt I have been absent here far more in the past few years than I have been present. I’m okay with that, most days. Some days, however, I feel a keen sense of loss. I miss just babbling about my day. I miss putting fingers to keys and spitting out whatever may be

Black Coffee

July 19, 2013 By In Babble, Blog, Life No Comment

I was talking on Facebook yesterday about changes, how someone can change pretty significantly, and how it can be completely baffling when no one even notices. I mean, most people notice the big changes or the physical changes; new house, new car, lost weight, gained weight, you’re drinking more, you dyed your hair blue. But

Random babble with a sprinkle of photos

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone is doing something fun. (I know it’s trendy right now to be all “zomg, Independence Day is not about fun it’s about celebrating our freedom!” — and I’m all for being grateful that we have the freedoms we do and glad our forefathers fought to give us independence as

Fuck you, Week.

June 28, 2013 By In Babble 3 Comments

I? Am really not having a good day.  In fact, it’s been a pretty crappy week.  We’ve had almost nothing but rain and ridiculous humidity, I haven’t put my contacts in for days and have a follow up tomorrow so I’m totally not going to be adjusted to them, the probiotics I’m taking give me

Sleepy Sunday

June 2, 2013 By In Babble, Blog 2 Comments

I slept until 2 PM today. This is NOT the way to “get things done”. Thank gods it’s a Sunday. It is Sunday, right? My sense of what day it is is all fouled up lately.  So is my sleep schedule.  Seems like not having to get up early every day has thrown me into

So it is over….

…and this is what I did with my day. I took pictures of my dogs, my iced coffee, my self, Taylor’s bike,weeds,rocks,broken statues. I also removed most of my Skype list and reconnected with some on my twitter list. It was a good day. Lets hope more of them are.

I  have a million things to do but, instead, I’m sitting here listening to a mix of Lauren Hill and Amy Winehouse on Spotify and taking pictures of my coffee and nails. (The coffee is dunkin donuts strawberry shortcake, which is surprisingly good with some sugar, especially iced. The nail polish is cheap wet and

I caught up on blogs today.  Blog reading, that is.  For the most part, for the past few months, I’ve only had a chance to skim my favorites — so I was excited to be able to sit down today and peruse all the blogs at my leisure. I noticed some things immediately: 1. Once

Winter blahs?

February 15, 2013 By In Babble, Riding No Comment

Sometimes, when the snow has gone to slush and the world is dingy and grey and caked with salt, the longing for spring pierces like a knife. I love winter, love hoodies and yoga pants and slippers and robes. I love warm, comforting food and soft, fuzzy blankets. I love snugly dogs and long, dark

Blah Blah Blah with a Dash of Bleh

February 11, 2013 By In Babble No Comment

So… I realized the other day that I haven’t really been sick this winter. A few minor sniffles and stomach upsets but nothing that lasted more than a day or so. I knocked on wood the second I realized it but I also gave myself a little pat on the back. I am pretty sure

So…  I’m getting an iPad. I’m getting a small settlement from the accident I was in this past fall and we decided to use it for one necessary thing, one splurge and one “help someone else” thing. So we’re buying a new bed — because ours is at least 943 years old.  We need one.

Hello.  I hope you’re not expecting much.  I know it’s been awhile — and today my fingers felt the urge to type and type so here I am — but I still don’t have much to say. How about a list?  Lists are easy and catch you up fast, right? Right. So a list it

…you think you know me doesn’t mean you do. I’m starting to think that ALL the people who *think* they know me stopped paying attention a long time ago. Do you know me? Or do you know the me you saved in your head that may have fit the me I was then but no

Bits and Fluff

May 21, 2012 By In Babble, Blog No Comment

A million small pricks will damage the heart as much as a single large blow.  More, maybe. Insomnia sucks.  Cycles of sleeping too much and not sleeping enough leave you looking and feeling  ragged and blue. Make up doesn’t help Spring makes my heart smile Open windows and breezes make Sunday mornings in bed a

Well, it’s December. Nablopomo is over.  I fail at writing every day. I did, however, write 17 posts which is way better than the 12 I wrote the rest of the year. This?  Is not my year for blogging, apparently. That’s okay, though. It’s been a busy year for life. I’ve been blogging since September

How could I ever have succeeded with something that starts with naaaaaa, you can’t do it? Oh well. I wrote a little and I changed my theme and I got three different people wanting to advertise with me, all of whom I said hells no to because I just don’t want a blog full of ad banners

See that picture?  I want to be there. For about a month.  And anyone who yells at me or acts like a wiener gets the bridge pulled up on ‘em. Some bits of tid since I have nothing else today: I woke up sicker than I was yesterday.  It feels like this flu was running

Ticky Tacky

Sometimes, when I’m out on the bike, I sing this song. I don’t have a radio on the bike and it’s illegal to use an iPod so I tend to sing to myself.  I don’t know any whole songs so my singing sounds a lot like one of those late night informercials for 80s Love

Milk and Honey

November 14, 2011 By In Babble No Comment

I didn’t have a cup of coffee, at all, from around 9 am Friday until like 4 pm Sunday. Even since then I’ve only had a couple cups. Black tea with milk and honey is going down a lot better and eases my sore throat at the same time…
