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-rainy Portland. Not much to do about wetness. We have been scheduling social events with my friends around the rain schedule. Works. Except it gets cold after 5 pm so we are all like cabbages with many many layers of clothing to keep us warm. Worth it though as I am starved for an adult human interaction after spending all…

There are only 3 days of 2020 left. Good riddance I say. However, despite being a horrific year for everyone I actually personally did not experience much hardship except for the fear of getting COVID. I am immunocompromised so that would be a piece of very bad news indeed. In many respects, COVID was made for me. I am a…

Winter is: rain and raincoat scarves and hats sweaters walking in a fog freshly baked bread hot borsch hot cocoa hot tea red wine and port cozy blankets hiking with no one on the trails iced ponds slowed time books for pleasure occasional snow naked trees muddy shoes hidden mice walking in the dark

It’s November — my least favorite part of Fall. The trees have lost almost all leaves and whatever is left on their branches turned into brownish dirty orange. I always get depressed in November and April as they are dirty transitions into a new season. November is full of dull colors and April of mud. I don’t have the motivation…

What to write when nothing is happening in your life (or at least nothing new). I have 52 books stacked on my fireplace mantle, about 25 in one of the windows and that’s all in the living room. The bedroom is another story. Most of them I haven’t read (although I read every night) and I just got 50 more…

The hot mess continues. The second week of misery. Nothing much is happening outside of that. Bread has not been baked as it is too hot and I subsist on sandwiches which is getting old. How many ways can you dress deli meat or how much watermelon can fit in your stomach before you become a frequent flyer to the…

Today was a mixed bag if I’ve seen one. First I was gently woken up at 5 am by my dog sitting silently by my head watching me sleep. A bit eery if you ask me. Why is it that the silent stares tend to wake you up when you can literally sleep through the sound of a canon? Although…

Today we went to our favorite trail, Bayocean. This trail is located by Tillamook and is a part of a ghost town that disappeared some time ago. Founded by T.B. Potter in 1906, the town was sold and resold few times and finally become forgotten and obliterated by 1960. There is no trace of it left except one open space where you…

Winter is definitely here. This morning we had a first frost. It was marvelous. I wonder if the temperature continues to decrease we will get some snow. That’s the most exciting news of this week. My world is still pretty small. One of the positive things that are happening is that I am getting closer to completing my Masters. After…
