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…

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…

A Saturday

The summer heat is draining. The front flower beds look post-apocalyptic from overgrown weeds. Yet I refuse to go out in the hot and humid weather to pull them. I've never liked hot weather and retreat into dark and cool corners. I've started collecting sweaters and socks for cooler weather. Finalizing my "wants" list for…

Apple picking

We went apple picking last Saturday. Our favorite orchard is always busy on the weekends in autumn due to their large variety of apples for picking. They have a schedule of what varieties will be ripe and when and what's available to pick and to simply buy in the market. They update their site almost…

Coincidence?

While I was stuck at home during the massive snow storm yesterday, I thought to myself: this would be a good day to buy those pants I want from PdC. I'm still nervous about buying something so expensive, but at the same time I know I can afford it and I do want them (along…

Getting ready

Tomorrow I start my new job. I'm already wishing I had more time unemployed. I am happy to be doing something different and interested in what the work entails, but at the same time... it's work. *sigh* Having bigger paychecks will be nice. Speaking of... the husband just got a new job as well and…
