Just a quickie

The World Series ended tonight and Atlanta beat Houston in six games. I was rooting for Atlanta so I’m glad they won. At the same time, I think it’s beyond time that they change their team name and all the other problematic imagery, chants etc that are attached to them. Other teams have changed (Cleveland…

Costa Rica – Day 7 – Playa Conchal – Sloth Sanctuary

I had another 8+ hour night! Spectacular. I should also mention I’ve been dreaming very vividly every night. Sandy gets to hear about every dream in the morning, and then they’re gone. They are varied and weird and not related to Costa Rica at all. This morning, it was time for our Covid test to…

hey there, hi there, ho there

Well, I let the summer completely go by without a post here of any kind. Summer was good. It was hot. Really hot at times. In mid-June, Sandy came to visit us for the first time since February 2020. She stayed for a week and it was great. We went to San Diego, we went…

National Poetry Month – Day 9

I think after I posted day 8’s poem, I lost a bit of momentum because that one was so emotional for me and took me a while to write. So there may be some double posts coming up. Here’s one I just wrote for something miraculous that happened on April 9, 2021. Rarities Some things…

September wrap-up

Since I’ve been almost writing every week, it leaves the monthly wrap-up as kind of rehashing of things I’ve already talked about. But, just for fun, here’s the month in review up til Thursday of last week: I watched Barbara a couple times. I did a poetry feature for Viral Poetry Series and participated in…

This week

Something changed in the last week. Sports are back. Baseball started a shortened season of 60 games. They don’t have fans in the seats, but they do have bigger than life-size cardboard cutouts in the seats behind home plate and along the baselines. The teams still travel. There was an outbreak on the Marlins’ team…

November is here!

Wherein I attempt NaBloPoMo (national blog posting month) – posting every day in November. October went by without a check-in (sorry), but I’ll wrap up the month now. I’ll start with some stats: I worked at the bookstore 10 days (usually 4 or 4 1/2 hours each time). It’s not a lot, but honestly, I…

Day 10 – Worcester MA to Cooperstown NY

I slept hard last night and according to my machine, nearly 9 hours! That was good. I slowly got myself together then read until Victor & Lea were ready to go to breakfast. It was another beautiful day, and we walked to their neighborhood diner called Salt & Pepper. Again, I had the eggs, bacon,…

NaBloPoMo fail!

Yep, it completely slipped my mind that November is National Blog Posting Month. I was reading my sister’s blog at the beginning of the month, around the 5th or so, and that’s when I realized! Oh well. The month, though, has been pretty good. It started off with the Houston Astros winning the World Series….
