Happy Storm!
Friday, October 14, 2016      7 comments

Last night, we had predicted the first layer of the big storm. Some are claiming it will be as big as the Columbus Day Storm. I got a quick dinner, because I knew the power would go out, and it did. I enjoyed the candle light and the howling ... Read more
Balance in Turbulence
Friday, October 07, 2016      3 comments

I found out earlier this week that the county job is going to someone else. I appreciate so much that they actually told me I was out of the running. So often applications seem to fall into a black hole. I think I may send them a thank you no... Read more
I Did It!

Step 1: Got up early. Put the finishing touches on my cover letter. Went in to the office early to print, sign & scan it for electronic delivery, before anybody came in for work. Step 2: Worked on art to quiet my nerves and dru... Read more
Cross Country Meet

For about three years now, my nephew has wanted me to come to one of his away sporting events on the coast. Until recently, they'd always been half a state south of here, so it wasn't really feasible. A little over a week ago, I get a te... Read more

Today was a rough one. On one of two busiest, and most challenging work days of the year for me... * My boss abandoned me all morning because of an extended meeting * The phone was ringing off the hook * The counter was busy * In betwee... Read more
Very Good Day!

Yesterday was such a good day off. I awoke with the urge to go for a jog on the beach. I rolled out with just barely enough time before church. I went for it. We need a few more big waves to wash out the sandcastle ruts of summer. Other... Read more
Week (so far) in Review
Thursday, September 08, 2016      5 comments

Sunday at evening church, I spent a lot of quiet time in prayer. I asked God a bunch of questions. Then in the stillness, I had this strong sense that I should go for it. I made a doodle page with what I felt like I was hearing. I came home ... Read more

I'm happy to say that Jewels is feeling better today. She's still not 100% but there's been no puking... not nearly so much diarrhea... I even caught her playing with a toy tonight. All of that smacks of improvement. Yesterday my nephew... Read more
Free Food / Sick Kid
Wednesday, August 31, 2016      3 comments

I like free food. Most of it that followed me home today is healthy. CSA isn't free, but the person I'm splitting it with me didn't want much of her part today. Score for more veggies! On the other hand, when someone else wanted to give ... Read more
Waiting for the Pieces to Fit
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      4 comments

I'm coming to the conclusion that none of the puzzle pieces fit right now. I've shopped for job positions near my parents. Most of them don't fit with my calling and skills. It's a small community, so it's not like there are tons of options. ... Read more

The Evil Dog is Coming
Thursday, August 18, 2016      3 comments

My cat, Jewels, thinks dogs are the devil. She goes out on leash. She's been chased by big frisky dogs off leash. I believe she is entitled to her opinion. It's not that she's never made friends with a dog. Lily whimpered and begged f... Read more
Rest and Productivity

Yesterday I took a full body relax day. I gave myself multiple massages with the handy dandy tool my chiropractor suggested. I read, slept, sat and stared at the flowers... it was an all together chill out day. Today I tried to get ever... Read more

Tonight the weather was cool. After a fast paced crazy day at work, I set out for a little jog on the beach. I could tell I haven't done that version of cardio for awhile. It was awesome to be back at it, although the wind was brutal at point... Read more
