My current read, which, may I add, has a fabulous title. To be honest, pregnancy kicked my reading habits in the teeth, y’all. Like, hard. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to pick up a book and read it through to the end. But! Now I’m nursing. And when you’re nursing and hanging … Continue reading I’m Reading Again!
Folks, this is tiny house living at its very realest. The snow is too deep outside to use our clothes line, and probably won’t melt for a good long while. Cute, huh? Living like this stressed me out until one of my lovely writer friends suggested I romanticize it a bit. So now I live … Continue reading Winter in the Tiny House
Guess what!? I’m alive. I know, miraculous, right? I can’t believe it’s been six months since I’ve written for this blog. I think that might have been the last time my brain worked properly. When was that? July. Yes, July. That was the month I lost my mind. I remember now. In case you didn’t … Continue reading I’m Alive!
I’m starting to feel like a human again. Exciting, right? I have more energy, I don’t need a nap every two hours—thank goodness—and I can actually get excited about projects again. Including my birthday project! Something that I love to invest in—when I’m not so tired that I can’t string four words together—is farming on … Continue reading Summer Projects
Summer is here! Shockingly. Every time winter comes to an end in Colorado, there’s always a chancy few weeks when I’m not quite sure if spring is here or if winter is just waiting for me to get my hopes up so it can crush all my dreams.Case in point, we planted our garden at … Continue reading A New Garden
Okay, I’ll admit it. Lately, my husband and I have been a little, teeny bit stressed. You know, with the new baby coming, and my traveling for work, and watching my nephew several days a week, and our house project stalling every time we get some momentum going. (Gotta love those government regulations.) Between me … Continue reading Finding Time For Fun
I love being a writer. I love being a full-time writer, and I’m looking forward even more to being a full-time writer who is also a stay-at-home mum. That’s still a weird concept for me, by the way. Me, being a mum. Probably will have to get used to that at some point. Existential crisis … Continue reading 3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Committing to the Writer’s Life
I Mailed A Letter Today I mailed a letter today, I wrote it just for you. The words were traced with gray-green ink, It’s still my favorite hue. I pasted in a poem, The kind I knew you’d save. Full of loss and hope and bitter tears, And the love he wished he gave. I … Continue reading I Mailed A Letter Today
Three months ago, I would have considered myself a foodie. I loved food. All kinds of food. Exotic, diverse foods. Every kind of food you can imagine. Except for fast food, obviously. If I’m going to waste the calories, I want it to be worth something.Anyway, that was three months ago. Now, I’m growing a … Continue reading Food Is Weird
If I were a pilot, I’d fly so very far. Probably to Malaysia, Or maybe Zanzibar. I’d take my plane above the clouds, As high as we could soar. Then drop down low so we could see, That strange and distant shore. I’d fly us to a jungle, And land among the trees, So we … Continue reading If I Were A Pilot
