A September RIFF | 9.23.22

The Autumnal Equinox occurred last night at 9PM and it is as if Mother Nature flipped a switch... the arrival of autumn did in deed bring autumn-like temperatures! This morning it was a very chilly and hushed silence talking Sherman for his morning walk. No birdsong,...

Unraveled Wednesday | 9.21.22

Greetings Unravelers! Happy Wednesday... or Happy Autumnal Equinox Eve Day! Haha! Yes, it's the time of year when a knitters heart begins to think Winter Is Coming... and the urge to cast on all the woolly things takes over! Or, in my case... the urge to get a woolly...

Sometimes Monday | 9.19.22

Is full of random things... This week I welcome autumn and over the last week or so I have been closely watching the subtle (or not so subtle) changes outside... Sherman and I head out before the sun rises now and this morning was especially dark with only a chorus of...

Things I Learned This Week | 9.16.22

This week was a good week for learning... at least for me...and I thought I'd share what I learned with you all! Thing One: Pita success happened. Or at least I found a very tasty and easy recipe. And while some of my pita's puffed up, not all of them did - or at...

A Gathering of Poetry | September 2022

Weekending | 9.12.22

Greetings everyone and Happy Monday! It was a full weekend... a full indoor weekend thanks to the grey skies that brought some rain to Pittsburgh! Much needed rain, mind you...so I am not complaining. (Okay, I am not complaining about the rain but the mosquitoes on...

Museum of Me | September 2022

Museum of Me | September 2022

This month the curators were encouraged to update the thoughts about school exhibit... not necessarily a back to school exhibit, for which my curator heaved a sigh of relief. No need to stress over my lack of "back to school wardrobe, notebooks, binders, pencils,...

Full: Beginning Again | August 2022

A Friday Catchall | 8.26.22

This week has felt very disordered to me... a not very weekend weekend, a missing day on Monday, and then trying to catch up with what day it is... I am really glad that the week is over! But before I close the curtain on this week, I have a few things to share! First...

Hey, Mr. Postman | 8.19.22

Today I have a stack of letters that I need to get in the post... buckle up! Dear Citizens Bank Mortgage Department, I realize that your goal is that people who have a mortgage would never pay it off and make all payments on time...and refinance frequently. However,...

Sometimes Monday | 8.15.22

is for emptying out my brain... Occasionally I have so much clutter just rattling around my head, I just need to dump it all out. Clean the slate, as it were. This is one of those Mondays! I am wondering how there can be so many mosquitoes outside right now. It has...
