Here’s to another classic Thanksgiving Day post

It’s time for Thanksgiving here in the United States. For many people that means good food, family and football. Not in my case, as I live far away from family and will be working. However, I managed to bake myself a pumpkin pie and will be enjoying that before I head out to work. It’s […]

Why Legally Blonde is one of my favorite movies

Look, I don’t take life too seriously. Why should I stress about X or Y when I could be enjoying a cup of hot cocoa with my family? I live my life one day at a time and try not to get caught up in the busyness of this world. I also learned a long […]

Coffee date

If we were having coffee, I would ask your opinion on my wardrobe. I really have no idea how to dress sometimes. Work is easy when you are limited to khakis and workout clothes are easy, but dressing up…not so much. Oh how much easier my mornings would be if I had Cher’s closet (from […]

Oh, the perils of mountain biking

Yesterday, I read a post by Joan about her lumbar spine and it inspired me to write about my injury. I fell off my mountain bike this summer and have been recovering.

My writing space

My writing space is more like a temporary location that disappears as soon as it appears. I write using a laptop at home, while sitting at the table. Usually this involves a cup of coffee or tea. If I can get a spot in the sun, that’s better. I like to write in the early […]

Walking by the Three Wise Gnomes

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols As I walk around the block with my dog, I look at all the houses and wonder who lives inside. Each house has it’s own personality as my neighborhood is not comprised of cookie-cutter housing. Although one section of the […]

The simple things: Espresso

One of my favorite things is enjoying a shot of espresso. It’s a great way to start the day and still have room in your tummy to enjoy breakfast. I only drank drip coffee until I was introduced to the world of espresso in college. This experience taught me the ins and outs of espresso […]

Chocolate Abundance

I have an abundance of things in my life. Right now that includes candy. Halloween is always a fun time to dress up and eat too much candy. Right now my balanced breakfast includes a side of mini snickers. Yes, I know that’s not healthy. But that candy bowl isn’t going to empty itself and […]
