Today was not my day. It was a shitty day. The kind of a day where you try to put pants on and fall over. Everything felt and went wrong from the moment I woke up. I overslept. And this is a lot to say since this was Sunday. Usually, I love to sleep, especially now that I I have…

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…

Holly hotness! It seems to me that Oregonians (and I am one of them) constantly complain about the weather no matter what conditions — rain or shine. I do have to disclaim that 100F is bloody hot no matter where you are. And weeks of 95F are dreadful also no matter where you are. I am ready for this summer…

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…

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…

Yesterday we ventured to Washington because I wanted to hike Siouxon Creek trail. On the way there before taking the turn of the highway we were welcomed by Google Lady to WA. Nice touch Google. The trail was beautifully accompanied by the creek with it’s swimming holes of most beautiful blue-green water and waterfalls. (see it on Instagram). However, to…

Things I see when I am running: 1. The asphalt with with intricate patterns of dry leaves stuck to it and interlaced with patterns of somebody else’s footprints.  I always wonder how many miles they ran before me. 2. Chicken bones. They are everywhere as if the inhabitants of Tanasbourne all walking around with the drumsticks and discard the thigh…

On aging. How do you age gracefully? I think a lot about it now that I am 45. And no, I am not afraid to say it.  I cannot believe that I reached such age. Anything beyond 25 did not exist for me for a long time. When I turned 25 I thought the world was over. When I turned…
