It’s Friday night, and the outside is loud with cars. It’s about 9 pm. But it is quiet in my apartment except for the snoring of my little piglet who is not a real piglet, he is a dog, but I like to call him Piglet. A friend of mine once posted on Facebook of all places about the death…

Friday is my favorite day. The anticipation of the weekend and everyone is already in a weekend mode so not too busy at work. I usually take Opee on a very long walk and then just ease into my day. Bliss. I started seriously writing. There is a short story in the works the preview of which you might have…

So, I got a lot of positive comments on Facebook for my writing. One comment even said that I should write a book… I am not sure that I can write a book but maybe start with a short story. Here is the beginning of one: “So, let us start the story of the protagonist’s life who is called John…

I have an urge to make stuffed peppers. It is not often that I crave a particular food but yet here it is — the craving out of the blue. I never cooked stuffed peppers before but found a good recipe to try out. I imagine it would be like my borsch which demanded a lot of practice. It took…

Down day today. Covid is getting to me finally. I was ok with that for the most part because I am a loner by nature and totally OK without human interactions but as we move through I found that I missed physical contact. I am a hugger. I need to hug people. It is one of the ways to develop…

I love my house! I moved here a couple of years ago from the apartment I lived in for 5 years. That apartment never felt like home and every year I was telling myself that it is time to move on. It was a beautiful apartment: a top-floor corner unit with tons of big windows. Anyone would be happy to…

Taking on more duties at work. It kind of sucks as I am used to my regular workflow. It’s ok though. Take one for the team I guess. Not that it will be rewarded or appreciated in any way. Such is life. I’ll just continue looking for another job. There is one that I am going to apply to this…

Trying to figure out my Vaccine from COVID status. I think I am 1B group 7 — educator. That would be grand and should be open in a couple of weeks. This is especially good news because my bestie’s parents are coming from Kazakhstan. They are our Universal parents. Certainly mine. I don’t have parents anymore. My mom passed a…

Rainy day today but we got lucky and walked between the pours. This morning we went to Rock Creek Greenaway urban trail that goes along the preservation nature area which is green and full of ducks and otters to break the monotony of going to the same urban trails during the working week. Although we have 5 trails to alternate…

Not much to post today. As I walked today I told every dog owner we passed by that their dog is cute. I think I made their day just as mine would be made if someone told me my dog is cute. Which of course he is. I would even go further and say he is beautiful. Which he is.…
