Today I took some time off work in the morning and went on a two-hour urban hike with my beastie. It was beautiful. The leaves are turning. The Fall is here. Fall is my favorite season here in Oregon since winters do not have snow. When I was living in Alaska it was winter. I loved -40F and deep snow…

Today I paid off all of my student loans. I can’t believe it! It took 20 years. Now I can start saving for travel! I can go to so many places on my list! Europe is first. Great Britain and Ireland to be precise. Then to Nordic countries. South America for some reason is not appealing. Everyone goes there and…

Today on a walk with my beastie I came across a wandering stray dog in one of the neighborhoods of Hillsboro. The dog was beautiful but had no collar and had beginnings of what looked like mange and a wound on top of his tail. He did not come to me but came to Opee and Opee stood there not…

I came home from work early only to find out that my dog is laying by the window observing the shitty weather that we had for months now and refusing to go outside. I can’t say I blame him. It’s shitty — raining and cold. What I am wondering about is how long can he last without doing his business.…

The rainy season is finally here. According to my Google lady, it is supposed to rain non stop for at least 2 weeks. The difficult part is not the rain though. Rain gear can fix that. The difficult part is grey skies. Just like in Alaska the dark fucks with your brain here it is the grey. Might be the…

It’s December already. Winter is here to stay. It’s cold in the mornings and everything is frosty. But it is offset by the sun in the afternoon. Hopefully, this trend will continue. I just had a 5 day of the weekend because of Thanksgiving. It was lovely although I did not get out of town which I should have done.…

Once your life settles in a routine it is time to re-evaluate and make changes. Or so I have been told. Routine makes the day go by faster as you move from one point of doing to the other. But slowing down the time might not be a bad thing. Someone told me once that change does not have to…

  I promise and promise to myself that I will write every day. The same thing goes for painting and drawing. In reality, I am lazy I think? I always stumble on one sentence, “I have nothing to say.” How is it even possible. I think part of this attitude is the fact that I spend most of my time…

the last day of 2018. I don’t have good news. I am typing with one hand. reason being I broke my wrist on the Christmas eve. Was trying the hoverboard that was a gift for one of my friend’s children. I owned it once I was on it. Did the spins and all, just happened to jump the wrong way off of…

What a wonderful life it is when you are on vacation. The true vacation for me is not going to touristy destinations surrounded by a lot of people. The true vacation for me is finding a secluded spot or a hike that is less traveled and submerging into experiences that nature has to offer. Today I went on a hike…
