Beginning of June already… Where does the time go? It seems just yesterday I was planning projects for the Summer and now that Summer is officially here I find myself procrastinating and re-planning my life for a later date. Some of it is laziness and some of it is a fear of failing. Planning is very akin to New Year’s…

Filed my taxes and was completely disheartened at the amount I ended up owing… The only good thing is that I actually had extra money to pay for it. Of course, I drank wine after receiving that news. How could you not? It was truly “drowning my sorrows.” Got a second dose of the vaccine. I used Moderna. I anticipated…

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…

I’ve been filling up my jazz collection. the latest addition was John Coltraine. The greatest sax player ever. No Kenny G and easy listening here. I generally collect the Blue Note series but Coltraine’s album is seminal so I could not pass it up in spite of it is being from the Columbia Records series. My collection is growing and…

Ten more days left of November. Time tends to fly the older you get. I’ve been working on drawings a lot lately. They are coming along nicely. Being on ETSY and selling some gives me extra motivation. If anyone reading this and would like to check them out: HTTP://etsy.com/shop/ghost4boris. It is nice to know that someone else likes your art.…

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 is a lazy day for me. I started it with an intention to run but quickly realized that today might take more effort as I hiked 10 miles the day before so naturally, I bailed out and went back to sleep. Besides, it was rainy outside of my window and rain always gives pleasure to staying inside. Not much…

Some days are tougher than others. Today is that day. No reason that I can determine. Everything is the same. And besides, I went on a 10-mile walk with my beastie in the morning. That usually takes care of all the trash that tends to reside in the mind. So yes, I have no idea why. It just how it…

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…

Smoke is here. As if COVID was not enough life throws you another curveball. My windows have been closed for a week and because my house is so well insulated it is incredibly hot. My poor dog! Work is stressful with everyone teaching online. You’d think faculty would get used to it now seeing how they have been doing it…
