Life Lately | October 2019


Sabine National Forest, October 2010 Thinking: My friend Patrice posted her monthly “Currently” post and I remembered I hadn’t done one since August, so here I am! What am I thinking? I don’t really know. Gardening: Mustering up the energy and interest to garden once again. All of the work in the edible garden this […]

Sunday Things


For the first time in two years I’m crocheting again. The last time I crocheted I was attempting to make a cardigan type thing but it ended up going south about halfway through. Someday I’ll frog all of that yarn. After that I lost interest in crochet. But with the change in seasons I’m becoming […]

Life Lately | August 2019


Me and my niece Zoe a few weeks ago. Thinking: About our upcoming vacation! It’s a good one with a lot of moving parts involved so I’m hoping it all goes smoothly! And generally having an existential crisis on the creeping fascism growing in the world and the rapid state of climate change. Gardening: I […]

Snapshots from the Last Few Months


Instead of my usual ‘Life Lately’ posts I thought I’d go through and share photos I’ve taken, mostly from my phone, the last few months. I may not have been writing much here but there’s been quite a bit going on. If you can’t view, click here If you can’t view, click here Back in […]

Friday Evening After A Rain


Loquats from our friend’s tree that I turned into jelly/thick syrup. The evening sun is blaring into the office while Forest whoooshes dinosaurs and blocks around the living room. He’s supposed to be picking up his blocks so that he can watch a cartoon or three but as always playing is greater than putting up […]

Life Lately | Early May 2019


Thinking: Two pretty big controversial things: The First: Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds @rareseeds is hosting Clive Bundy, the racist, violent, militia, anti-government, anti-public lands, anti-environmental activist to speak at its gathering of 10,000 gardners in May. Disgusting. Everyone should boycott Baker Creek immediately. RETWEET pic.twitter.com/svn6wnlQgx — KierĂ¡n Suckling (@KieranSuckling) April 26, 2019 You can click […]

Status Update: Life is Chaotic


I haven’t meant to go radio silent these last nearly two weeks. It’s just been hectic and I’ve lost all energy for writing and sharing here. Things started trending frenetic about two weeks ago when a coworker moved on to another position. We’d just lost a more recent hire a few weeks prior to that […]

Life Lately March 2019


Thinking: About politics of course. I think after the first six months of the Mueller investigation I knew that it was not going to be the linchpin to get us out of the course we’re heading in. From time to time I’d be swayed into positivity by someone about the report, or even when we’d […]

Life Lately | February 2019


Forest in a hunting blind at South Llano River State Park Thinking: While we were camping last weekend we had to take a road back to make it a loop to the car from the trail we were on. About 10′ off the trail into the vegetation was a large empty chip bag. I deviated […]

A Taste of Spring


Phlox drummondii Over the weekend we went to the Hill Country to camp at Inks Lake State Park, and we were in for a treat. The Lady Bird Wildflower Center has been sharing their wildflower reports on social media, basically reposting what people are sharing that they’ve seen, and I’ve seen bluebonnets from Big Bend […]
