Monday Musings: Short Takes

My brain has not been all that coherent lately. Everything seems to work in fits and starts, and I can't maintain any sort of momentum. Sure, I could blame the pandemic and a few other things, but I don't think any one of them is really what's going on. Maybe it's just a combination of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Short Takes

Monday Musings: “Man, It’s a Hot One”

"Like seven inches from the midday sun" Or, at least, that's how it has felt the last couple days. We've had heat indexes over 100. The humidity hasn't been too brutal, so I guess that's a good thing. Still, I haven't been outside more than necessary. The dog goes out on the deck, sleeps for … Continue reading Monday Musings: “Man, It’s a Hot One”

Friday Review: Unf*ck Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop (Audiobook)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars Okay, so this book isn't going to provide much in the way of new and brilliant insights into the ways we can defeat our own selves when we get stuck in a familiar mindset. If you look closely, each of the seven chapter headings/affirmations here are things that we … Continue reading Friday Review: Unf*ck Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop (Audiobook)

Monday Musings: Checkin’ In

Another week, and we are still on lockdown. Most of the medical experts are saying that, here in the US, we should hit the surge for the COVID-19 infections in the next two weeks. We are being strongly urged to stay even more isolated than before. Which means the recommendation right now is that, for … Continue reading Monday Musings: Checkin’ In

2020: Out With the Old, In With the New

It seems odd to think that with this New Year, we are moving into a new decade. Not that this is the first time that has happened to me, of course. I am have seen a few decades come and go along the way to 2020. It feels different this time, somehow. Maybe it's partly … Continue reading 2020: Out With the Old, In With the New

Tuesday Thoughts: Settling Down For a Bit

It's been busy around here for the past few weeks. Mostly traveling with a bit of other stuff tossed in there just to keep me busy. The traveling is done until the back half of October, but we have some stuff going on this weekend (including our grandson's eighth birthday party. He's 8? Wow!). After … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Settling Down For a Bit

Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head

Well, my ears, actually. I had my ears pierced many years ago, but after a while, I stopped wearing earrings. I left the ears without earrings for years, and eventually, the holes closed up to the point I couldn't get earrings in at all. I left them go for a long while, but finally, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head

ThursdayThoughts: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?

I hope. I am sorry for the prolonged lack of posts. I have no real excuse. We have been busy with company Easter weekend, and a sort of last minute trip to Staten Island the next weekend. I could have done quick updates but I got lazy and tired. I promise to try to be … Continue reading ThursdayThoughts: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?
