TV shows I’m enjoying

I mostly completed November’s NaBloPoMo, but I did miss a couple days, so I’ll catch up into December. Aren’t y’all lucky? I recently started watching a couple different TV shows that I am really enjoying. Since they might not be on people’s radar, I wanted to fill you in. We Are Lady Parts This show…

Coffee

As an extra gift for my birthday, aside from surprising me with her actual presence, my sister bought me a coffeemaker. You see, when we were in Costa Rica, we drank coffee every morning. That wasn’t that new for me. I tend to favor mochas, but I’ve had plenty of brewed coffee. I just didn’t…

Hair snake

Here’s a story from a couple weeks ago. My shower drain started backing up. My sister had had the same problem with her bathtub and had to call a roto-rooter guy to come snake the drain. Mom had said she had a device to do it, but she couldn’t find it. But she went online…

College applications

I have no real recollection of my college applications. I’m pretty sure I had to write an essay, and I might even have it somewhere in a file folder. But what these applicants need to do now is remarkable. There are activity lists and short answer essays and student statements and academic statements. And so…

Working Friday

I had the day off from my regular job, but my editing job was very busy today. There are some school deadlines on Nov 30, so a lot of things are on my plate. I still have a few more to do over the weekend. But this morning, I did a 2.5 mile hike and…

Day of thanks

I slept in. I thought I might go for a hike this morning, but after I got up and around, I thought that maybe I should actually have a holiday without any to-dos or should dos. So I went to Starbucks, came home, read my book outside and enjoyed the morning. Then I went in…

Pare down

I have a daily organizer on which I list things I want to get done each day. In the early days of the pandemic, it was pretty bare, but as time has gone on, there are things I want to do, like keep in touch with friends or submit to poetry journals, that I like…

Short week

After what was a fabulous birthday weekend, today it was time to go back to work and other realities. We had In-n-Out for lunch, then we took Sandy to the airport to return to cold SLC. Until next time, hermana mia! When we got home, I did some editing work, then I went to play…

Sunday Funday

Today was packed with fun things! First, Sandy & I went on a light trail hike. Then we went to Polly’s Pies and bought what turned out be rather disappointing cinnamon rolls. After breakfast, we headed to Target 🎯 so she could buy another gift for me: a coffee maker. Since we got back from…

Late birthday surprise

Last night after dinner, my mom insisted that we watch a movie and stay up until midnight to enjoy every moment of my 50th birthday. I found it a little odd but also kind of nice. During the movie, she kept getting up (I need water, I need to go the bathroom, maybe Lulu needs…
