It’s That Time Again

Yes, I am getting freakishly excited about the holidays already, but that’s not to what I’m referring. It’s almost NaNoWriMo time, and I’m trying to decide whether or not I want to participate. I’ve participated before.  It’s a great source of pride for me to be able to walk around in T-shirts which boast I’m …

Too Rigid

With all of the silly, nonsense blogs I’ve been posting lately, I bet you’re wondering about how Mr. C and I are really doing, right?  I mean, you know we’re going to counseling.  How is that going, amIright? Oh my heavens – we’re doing so much better! Our lows are so much… not as low?  …

Leavenworth 2017

Yup.  Another Leavenworth blog.  Every year.  Just plan on it.  Hopefully, next year will be a bit different, but we’ll see. This handsome man took me this year.  Hubba hubba! Part of the reason I enjoy going to Leavenworth in October is to see the lovely fall foliage.  The yellows, oranges, and reds on the …

Busy and Productive

Yesterday, I blogged about all of the canning I did this summer.  The one thing I gained from all of it?  Self-awareness. Apparently I like being busy and productive. When I came back from my trip, I found it really hard to work both of my jobs.  It took a while to figure out how …

Canning Fool

I recently mentioned the massive amount of blackberries on the Kingston Farm.  Seriously – it was a lot!  I froze a bunch, but my freezer started getting full, so I began canning them. When I figured I had more than enough blackberry jam, I started searching for other recipes.  Jelly, add jalapeno – whatever I …

Kingston Farm

So, you remember that I moved, right? I’ve never thought of myself as a city girl, nor have I even been close to being a farm girl.  I’ve always lived in a suburb and it was where I fit – a quiet neighborhood in a quiet town with kids running around after school, playing and …

My Two Jobs

So, what did I do when I got home from my East Coast trip?  I started working at my second job.  While that sounds exhausting and complicated, it’s not as bad as it seems. Some weeks, I barely work 20 hours at my first job and then I almost never work over 10 hours at …

Niagara Falls Day 2

Our full day in Niagara (and last full day of our trip) started out wet. Being native Seattlites, we are used to waiting five minutes for a storm to pass.  We also aren’t the type to let a few raindrops dampen our spirits.  We took shelter under a Starbucks awning (which I felt was quite …

Leaving NY & Niagara Falls Day 1

The only thing memorable about leaving NY was the rudeness of the New Yorkers.  While at the airport, there weren’t three chairs all empty so we could sit together.  I understand about wanting/needing space, but when you see someone sitting on the floor while your necktie and cellphone have their own seat, you’re rude. I …

New York – Day 4

Our day started off with a ride through the park.  We had initially wanted to take a horse and carriage ride, but… Do you have any idea how expensive those are?  Holy Crap! So, instead, we had this guy take us around, pulled by his bike.  When he realized that we didn’t necessarily want to …
