Year of the house

This is my new desk. For the time being I'm using an extra dining room table chair since the ottoman I was using before was too short. I actually like the dining room chair since it forces me to correct my posture. I know most computer chairs are ergonomic to help posture in general, but…

The need for nothing

Happy New Year. Winter is here and so is my Busy Season. I think this is the first year in a long time that I did not get one single item of clothing for Christmas or purchase clothing between Christmas and New Year's. That's not a bad thing. After the failed ban last year and…

Hits and Misses

Considering I started off 2019 with a shopping ban, I ended up purchasing a lot of items when I broke the ban and let the flood gates open to buying whatever the hell I wanted. Granted, I did have very specific things in mind and ironically those things ended up only being "meh" for the…

Itching for something different

The end of the year brings tension, excitement and expectations of something "different" about to happen. Resolutions come to mind. Will new goals penned down stick? Lately I've been rewatching some old anime shows and reminding myself of how much I learn from the characters. Honestly, it doesn't matter if it's anime, a tv show…

Upgrades

Lately a theme of upgrades permeates my life. My flight to Miami this week was upgraded to first class on a large plane. I had a seat that nearly lay completely flat. After two glasses of merlot with dinner I laid down and slept. It was the best beginning to a business trip ever. I…

Positive Vortexes

Z and I are back from our long vacation through the southwest. The trip lasted forever, or so it felt. I guess that means we really needed a break and packed in a lot of sight seeing and hiking. We visited the Hoover Dam, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend,…

Cool weather formula

I've fallen into a safe uniform formula for the cooler weather lately. A lightweight sweater and pant with a cardigan or wool jacket if I need a layer for going outside. The photo with the beer is from today. It's been Hell Week at work, which I knew was going to happen. Why? Because I'm…

4 days, 1 pant

Wearing the same pant until Friday was surprisingly easy. I was reminded of my old uniforms where I wore a tee and jeans every day. Usually the same jeans with a different tee. Once again I'm questioning do I really need half the clothes I own? Probably not, but feeling the gut wrenching remorse of…

Plants saying hi

I took these photos nearly a month ago and the status has changed a bit. Also, I excluded some photos because I should just take new ones. The above pilea glauca aquamarine has been a total pain for me. It's constantly dying and I've tried everything I can think of to keep it going, but…

Everything changes

I'm on a light color and monochrome kick. A dress! This is the only dress I own right now. I just got it from Knock Knock Linen (after nearly two months). It's heavy weight linen so it's got a nice heft to it that makes me feel grounded and safe in it. The pockets are…
