Enter the Fog God Neptune:

Behold. The majesty of a foggy day. Everything is elusive, unclear and soft. I can always rely on the enjoyment I derive from such days, a happy byproduct of severe fluctuations in temperature. Or whatever reason the scientists have come up with to explain fog; its presence is as mysterious as its effects. Since I’m currently…

Yule RULEZ

Oh boy. Am I excited for the holiday season this year. In many respects, this is a recessionary time for me, and probably many others. A time when we zero in on the important, intimate, beautiful parts of life and enjoy them in exquisite solitude. The way I’ve chosen to express this phenomenon is in…

Halloweenie

I love Halloween. This year I dressed up as a deer because my team at work dressed up like Buckhunter and we all had to match. Luckily this year it was pretty nice outside. Unlike that one Halloween where we had a snowstorm, which was cool. But not conducive to Halloweening. I was lucky enough…

Death is all around us.

The garden is dying. Have you ever had a salad made up, primarily, of tomatoes grown in your very own private garden? What about grapes, peppers, cucumbers (which actually didn’t fare well this year), spring unions, UNICORNS (that was just a little joke) ??? It’s taken me some time to really prepare emotionally for the…

You are what you kill. I mean eat. I mean kill.

I’m trying to launch a campaign to get fit. I know, I’ve just lost by utilizing the word “trying”, but it’s true.  I don’t know if it’s going to work out because I’ve already associated bad things with all things healthily aerobic. I don’t know if I can “pick things up and put them down”….

Thanksomuchgiving

Well! I’ve made a few Thanksgiving contributions for good measure. With as many invisible layers of love as I could fit. Roasted acorn squash, chocolate/peanut butter chip cookies, and cake! Strawberry, with sprinkles and multiple layers. Two. Also this is an appropriate time to thank people who read this blog. Out of the trillions of…

Decay of Summer

I love fall. Unfortunately, this thing I love destroys months worth of summer labor. My garden is freezing, which is sad for me. I’ve decided to collect a few pictures of the loss and deterioration that’s ensuing. Though I’d rather not remember it this way. Basil has been planted everywhere. Everywhere. Various yellowing tomato plants….

Moving on with your life!

Everyone I know is moving. Which is fine! I’m not jealous. I don’t even want to move, I don’t even like it. I couldn’t be bothered to have a blank new canvas for which to decorate. Or want that ghastly uncomfortable period where everything seems new and feels different and even the things you’ve had…
