My computer is covered in wine stains and dog hair. I don’t know how it is still alive. Someone on Facebook said that what matters is how the computer feels inside. I don’t know how it feels inside. It does not talk to me. And if it would it would probably say that it is resentful. Just came back from…

Vacation continues. It is only a week-long but I will take that (see my previous post for the reasons). So far I have checked my work email every day but only to clean up spam and see what it will be once I return to work on Tuesday. It would be a busy day, for sure. But I like busy.…

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…

It’s Wednesday. The hump day. I am starting to write more often which is good. I am not sure though if the quality of writing is suffering. In the morning we went to a “hunting” field where I let Opee free and allow him to hunt the mice to his heart’s content. He catches them and eats them. I figure…

I miss hiking! It has been a long time since COVID hit the world and going on the hikes became difficult as on weekends everyone and their mother was on trails. It simply became so crowded that all enjoyment went out of it. Besides, not everyone was wearing a mask. Now that I am fully vaccinated I can start hitting…

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…

Mellow day today. I don’t have many of those and generally move a lot through different tasks during the day. But it is Sunday which is a day of rest. So be it. I am reading “Killing Commendatore” by Haruki Murakami — one of my favorite writers of all time. So far it is mysterious and interesting as he writes…

Friday is my favorite day. The anticipation of the weekend and everyone is already in a weekend mode so not too busy at work. I usually take Opee on a very long walk and then just ease into my day. Bliss. I started seriously writing. There is a short story in the works the preview of which you might have…

So, I got a lot of positive comments on Facebook for my writing. One comment even said that I should write a book… I am not sure that I can write a book but maybe start with a short story. Here is the beginning of one: “So, let us start the story of the protagonist’s life who is called John…

I have an urge to make stuffed peppers. It is not often that I crave a particular food but yet here it is — the craving out of the blue. I never cooked stuffed peppers before but found a good recipe to try out. I imagine it would be like my borsch which demanded a lot of practice. It took…
