Saturday morning coffee thoughts: a new hope

It’s Saturday morning and the sun is shining. I’ve been awake since 5:30 am which seems to be the norm these days. A few weeks ago, I was proud of myself for getting up before 8 am every morning. Now, it seems I can’t sleep past 6. The days are getting longer and it’s bright…

One year closer to 50

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve just sat down for my first cup of coffee for the day. The sky is clear outside and the sun is shining. It’s early for me, I woke up out of a deep sleep around 7:30 am and decided to get up for the day. Yesterday was my birthday and…

Searching for the perfect quilt – bedroom makeover

It’s Tuesday night as I write this but you’ll read it Wednesday morning depending on where you are in the world. I’m still working on a new blogging schedule – but don’t hold me to that. Sometimes I just because I feel like it. I got the brilliant idea this past week to finally redecorate…

I’ve got a case of the midweek blues

Just a short daily diary post today. I’m tired and my shoulder is still dislocated. I’m not sure if it’s actually popped out of joint fully, but it’s hanging limp and hurts a lot. I think it probably just shifted out of place slightly. It takes a few days for it to pop back into…

Rainy days and Mondays

It’s Monday afternoon and my day is just getting started. Yesterday was so hot and muggy with 91% humidity and cloudy skies, that my skin felt like it was literally melting. Today is a little better. It’s overcast and we have a good chance of rain. We still haven’t had rain since the last downpour…

Sunday vibes – coffee and chill

I woke up late this morning after a restless night. I’m enjoying my first cup of coffee of the day and am watching videos about the upcoming Pentagon report on UFOs. The weather is cooler today and I’m enjoying a comfortable temperature of 22C in my condo. It feels nice. This is my kind of…

You’re damned if you do. You’re damned if you don’t – updated

So, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with social media but especially Facebook. I’ve learned that it’s impossible to be friends with everyone you know in real life. I have a hard rule of not adding supervisors or managers onto social media. That always seems to bite you in the ass. At my last job, I…

The powers of positive thinking

It’s Saturday again. What started off as a chilly and dreary morning has turned into a sunny and bright day with a gentle cool breeze. I don’t know why I start these daily posts off with a weather update. I’m starting to sound like a weather report. The day started off with me lazing in…

Wednesday batch cooking – with asparagus

It’s Wednesday morning or almost noon as I type this out. The sun is shining and even though there’s a chilly breeze right now, it’s supposed to get up to almost 20C today. That’s like summertime weather. I’m sitting here in my plush pj pants, sipping my first cup of coffee and eating my per…

It’s been three weeks! Condo update

Good morning dear readers. It’s 8:00 am here and it’s already shaping up to be a gorgeous day. I’ve had my first cup of coffee and bagel for breakfast. As soon as this is posted, I’m hitting the showers and will be walking over to the Dollar Store to pick up some cheap decorations for…
