The Inglorious Basterd

What the Heart Wants

Sooooo.  In my last post ( ), I mentioned what a rare and unique combination sexual attraction and mental/ romantic interest is for me.  I was pondering that specific bit even more today, and it occurred to me that it’s so really really rare that it has only happened a handful of times in […]

Mini Chalkboard In My Room

I Am Amidst An Affection Affliction

Say THAT ten times fast. I’m afraid I may have fallen in love. I know, I know, I’m awful because I’m about to complain about something that is essentially wonderful.  I mean– I get it, I do.  I understand that all of the emotions that are wound up in love are a blessing; the experience […]

Bathroom From the Doorway, After

Charming Chartreusey Restroom

About a year ago, I was given the opportunity to have the job I always wanted– a sort of everygirl’s style guide– by my friend Tracey.  Tracey had just inherited some furniture for her little girl’s room (which I DO hope to show you very soon), and she couldn’t figure out how to make it […]

The Sky Makes Me Think.


Ugh.  I’m sorry ya’ll, I’m a horrible blogger.  It’s not just that I compose posts in my head that I never make (I do, and *constantly*), it’s also that I can’t seem to figure out what type of blogger I am, and what my aims are for this page…. If I was SMART, this blog […]

Kiddo And His Kite

Kite String Theory

I know that there are a lot of platitudes about kindness, and I’m going to try really hard to not say them all in this post.  (I’d like to think that I’m capable of a little more originality than that.  I’m likely *wrong,* but hey, we all like to have these illusions of ourselves.)  But […]

See the Giant Pine, Straight Ahead?

Random Kindness

Whenever the weather is nice enough, I take my exercise outside, in the form of a walk around my block or four.  There is a short stretch of road that I walk the entire length of, and it is rare that I see another person or even car along this very private stretch.  Today as […]

Kitty-Boo In My Plant

Outsmarted By a 12 Pound Furball.

Most of the time, I believe– like most of us functioning adult humans do– that I am smarter than my cat.  And then things like this happen.  Here I thought I was clever, situating my hearty little houseplant (a form of epipremnum) in its clay pot deep in this heavier ornate one.  Then I balanced […]

Cosmo Models the Clean Stairs

Tiny Tip– Cleaning Carpeted Stairs

Holy wow, ya’ll, I hate-hate carpeted stairs!  Like, the language I feel tempted to use when describing how much I loathe them is inappropriate for this public forum, it is that level of hatred.  I don’t think they should exist.  I don’t find them to be visually appealing, and the cleaning.  THE CLEANING! When we […]

Pinwheel Bouquet

One Hundred Day Challenge

I haven’t been around lately, and as always, I’m really sorry about that.  I feel terrible whenever I’m not posting regularly here, and for a myriad of reasons.  So it definitely needs to be something I work on, blogging needs to be an action I do, and do regularly. So in that spirit, I am […]

Auspicious, Confucius

Boys Are Weird.

I am forty years old.  At least once a day, I think, “Boys are weird.”  When I have this phrase ride through my head like a worn, cliched bumper sticker, as it has for the last twenty-five-plus years, I am not thinking of my eight-year old son, nay– I am thinking of adult men.  My […]
