December

Well, of course I didn’t complete NaBloPoMo (crying emoji face!) But let’s recap October and November while we’re here now. Octoberwell, of course there was work, which is going wellI watched episodes of a friend’s newest project that happened on Tuesdays in October. It’s a series called the Hope Desk and it’s a free hour’s…

birthday week

I got my first present today when my mom & I went to a sporting goods store, and she bought me a new tennis racket (racquet?)! It was her idea, and I was so happy and grateful! I also got some new balls, new grip, and these cute little shock absorbers. I can’t wait to…

Friday night

TGIF. Today, I worked, then I went to hit tennis balls. I went to our regional park which I thought would be busy, but the courts were mostly completely empty. I came home and had lunch, then I watched a little TV. I made some cookies, took Lulu for a walk, did some of my…

lots of tasks

Today started off well. I had many tasks to get done, one of them being writing here. But after getting most of my other tasks completed, I did my usual thing of playing on my phone and watching The West Wing, so that now, I have less than 10 minutes before I will lose myself…

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…

No justice.

The grand jury in the Breonna Taylor investigation came to a decision today. It was, not surprisingly, not satisfying in the realm of giving her some justice. Now all hell is breaking loose in Louisville. Again, not surprised. As I was writing, a quote came up on Facebook that I want to also put here:…

Almost six months

***Long post*** In a “normal” time, this Friday, September 18, I would be getting on a plane with my sister for our first trip to France (Paris first then the Riviera). The Paris days were our own, but the Riviera days were to be spent with a group to delve into creativity. This trip was…

August re-cap

Welcome to September. In August, I participated in an Instagram challenge called #augustbreak2020 that is created by Susannah Conway. She gives prompts for every day of the month and you post a photo inspired by that prompt. Some are easy, others are a little tough. The last day’s prompt was: August was…. My answer was…

July recap

I don’t know how much sense it makes to do a recap for a month that was basically the same as the previous month, the one before that, and before that, and before that. Yes, July was another Covid-19 quarantine-shelter-in-place-stay-home month. At least it was here. I’m seeing folks who are going on vacations, and…

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…
