last day of November

Oh my gosh! I (kind of) did it! Okay, so I missed a couple days, and some days had two posts because it was after midnight, but really, I’m happy with myself for sticking to it. And thanks to anyone who kept up with my posts! Today was again sunny in the morning but cold….

I have so much to tell you (plus NPM 30)

I think I’ll start off with the last poem of NPM 30 (of 2018, haha). Fortunately, I have a few to choose from. It’s from the same prompt group as the last two, but the prompt was “Life is but a dream.” Sh-Boom when I was younger discovering music I turned to my parents’ records…

NPM – 25 of 30

My pal, Lindsay White, posts a monthly writing challenge. For June it was to write a poem where the total number of words match your age. So mine is 46. Workout #46 my sweat smells sour as I work to lose what I can only kindly describe as grief weight extreme heat presses around me…

NPM – 25 of 30

I hate to leave things hanging, though, inevitably, it’s exactly what I do especially with regard to this blog. I abandoned the December reflections after my dad went into the hospital. I plan to write a lot more about what happened in December, but for now, I’ll say that my dad died on January 3,…

winding down

Today has been a fairly normal day. Went to work, did some training there, did some work after the training. After work, I came home and hung out and talked with Han for a bit. He’s got some great projects lined up that he’s really excited about. It’s cool. I made dinner, pork tenderloin and…

day 6 down

Nothing much to report today. Did the 4 drinks with 2 scoops again. It’s weird to say, but when I taste it, it seems familiar now. It’s hard to explain. I got home from work around 6:30 pm, and there was Doug still working. I had already made plans to go to Becky’s place to…

weekend away, stolen dough & forgotten keys

How do the weeks go by so fast? Last Tuesday, I went to Cafe Cabaret for the monthly reading. It went great. Wednesday and Thursday were days that have passed where I did nothing of significance. Probably watched some TV. Han & I are watching “The West Wing.” We didn’t watch it when it was…

March forth

It’s a directive. It’s also Han’s dad’s birthday. I didn’t do much marching today. In fact, I had kind of a tough afternoon and morning. I mean, for mornings, it wasn’t terrible. I had to go downtown for a work event. The event was held on the 34th floor of Symphony Towers – great views!…

AmericanaramA and other events

Hello! Man, you get out of the routine, and it’s hard to get back in! I missed writing when I went up to visit Mom and Dad the weekend of July 19-21, and then it just didn’t happen! Here are some things I did: – On July 26, I went to a poetry slam at…

March 2-3

I had started a very contented post on March 10, the day the time changed. I thought I had saved it as a draft, but it’s gone into the ether of WordPress. I find it ironic that I am the worst at keeping up my blog. My sister, my mom, my aunt, and my dad…
