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…

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…

What I hate: 1. Owning money 2. People who do not use turn signals 3. People who go under the speed limit 4. People who walk looking at their cell phone 5.

Insomnia. It’s been a couple of weeks since I was able to suspend myself into the sweet honey of dreams. I don’t know what happened. Nothing has changed in my routine. But nevertheless, here we are, not sleeping. The upside of insomnia is reading. After all, you have an entire night to kill. That’s a lot of hours. We don’t…

It is the end of October and the temperature is still in the 60’s. It is crazy. I hope that winter will appear sometime and make me happy with a little frost in the mornings. We went to a field this morning and somehow spent 3.5 hours there. Time flew as there were a lot of people and other beasties…

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 because I had a lottery ticket I fantasized about the life of being independently wealthy. It was not anything extraordinary. Most of it was a lifestyle that I lead already: walking, hiking, drawing, running. The only thing that would have changed is my living accommodations. I would either move to English or Irish moors by the ocean or stay…

Today was a day when I did not do anything. I bailed out of the running yesterday because of a few rain sprinkles and a minor hurt in my knee. Deep in my soul I know I just bailed out because I got too lazy. Now I am waiting for my dog to want to go outside which he is…

For six months now I spend most of my time alone and in silence. I live alone. Well, I have a dog, so technically it is not “alone alone” but my dog does not speak back so it is impossible to hold a true conversation. It is all one-sided. I have been working from home and as much as I…

I miss hiking. COVID is brutal in this respect. I am afraid that when I get to the trail there would be tons of other people and it ould be hard to pass them on a narrow trail. Opee and I go fast. We cloak a mile in 20 minutes. We both like to be fast as it feels more…
