Oops, there goes another rubber tree plant.

When I picked Harper up from school on Friday, I turned right into the park instead of left into the subdivision. I got out of the car and I walked and I stomped and I took photos and I wondered why the park planners didn’t bury the electrical wires. Please let me take this opportunity […]

There is always a Halloween.

October 31st, 2018 · Comments Off on There is always a Halloween. · Daily

This was the first photo I put up on Flickr. It was Halloween and Harper was six months old. Meredith was two and a half. Suddenly, a year went by and Harper was 18 months old and Meredith was three and a half. And everything kept happening and happening. At some point they started doing […]

Get it together. See what’s happening.

Here comes a bad word as an adjective, and its root is repeated as a noun four sentences later. Yesterday was just a really shitty day. I had a headache. I couldn’t get into my website. I had to go to the mall because Meredith needs a dress. Some crazy shit went down at the […]

Turkish Imposters and Dog Parks

October 30th, 2018 · 1 Comment · Daily

It’s difficult to succeed at NaBloPoMo when you have people from Turkey and China changing the passwords to your site so that you may no longer gain entry. (I’m seriously not making this up.) They opened a park by our house. Within it is a dog park. Scout knows the way.

28 down. 3 to go.

October 28th, 2018 · 2 Comments · Daily

1. I was unable to access my website earlier today because my username and password had somehow been changed. Understanding these issues and caring about them has become increasingly difficult for me. I just want to type, you know? 2. I’m all zonked on migraine meds right now yet I AM STILL HERE UPDATING THIS […]

He smells like Fritos.

Tonight was the final marching band competition of the season. Our band received the highest score of the night along with best music, best percussion, and best visual. I love every single thing about marching band, so I’m totally high right now on their final night wins. Hard work, dedication, and so forth. This is […]

I am Sisyphus and they were ballerina butterflies.

It’s 11pm and I pushed a xylophone up a hill and now I’m sitting on the couch wearing layers and it’s time for bed. Ah, but NaBloPoMo. Tomorrow will be the final band competition of the season. This photo was taken ten years ago and: TIME.

Do you smell that? Could it be a bonfire?

October 25th, 2018 · 3 Comments · Daily

This is a Russian Pumpkin, meaning it’s a White Russian made with fresh pumpkin syrup. This is warm pumpkin bread pudding with pumpkin ice cream. Today I am wearing this jacket. The leaves are turning red, I’m back to twice daily hot tea, and I’ve been wearing my Jackson Hole hoodie to bed. Marching band […]

Shall we loosen a jar from the nose of a bear?

October 24th, 2018 · 1 Comment · Daily

It’s local (to me) and each jar holds twelve ounces of raw wildflower honey and limitless amounts of sparkle and joy. Like water for chocolate.* The honey is super dark (meaning full of antioxidants) and super sweet (meaning I’m no longer putting honey AND sugar into my tea). Best of all, every bottle is bedecked […]

Chopin had to start somewhere.

October 23rd, 2018 · 2 Comments · Daily

This afternoon I had access to a marimba, some sheet music, and a quiet house. Suddenly I’m all sparked and it’s like giving a mouse a cookie, I suppose, because now I need to know how it feels to write my own music. I’ll probably be performing my tunes on a big stage somewhere in […]
