Still on the mend – coughing a lot, sleeping little, and totally out of gas. Speaking of gas, how about those prices? And if you need diesel (for the truck) and Premium (for the Mini), it’s really a killer.
My raise this year is definitely not going to keep up with increases in gas, coffee (gasp!), and everything else that’s going up. My boss was very apologetic but I told him I consider myself lucky compared to so many other people.

Just in case you needed a Brew Babes fix before I launch into deep thoughts… Are you ready? Let me light the way. Ah yes, the writing has been difficult to do everyday, having the time, not to mention coming up with something to write about and finding a way to make it “poetic”. This…
In my previous “A Day of Running” post, I showed a book called “Expressive Photography” which is by the Shutter Sisters. It’s a guide to “shooting from the heart”. It contains the inspiration I’m seeking for capturing the type of photos I’d like to take. In the introduction, Tracey Clark, founder of Shutter Sisters, wrote:…
I can’t help myself. I want bees. And chickens too. And a bigger garden area, perhaps with a brick paved walkway in the shape of a peace sign… I know I can’t do it this year. I’m overwhelmed as it is with house projects, dog, horse and garden demands, and too many financial blows as…
