Just Another Mellow Pleasing Day

Today was a pleasant balance of free-time and structured time, me-time and time shared with others. All in all, it had several elements of my ideal Saturday 🙂 Allow me to enumerate: 6am: up and at ’em while still dark out (see featured image above), 10 mile run along the American River Parkway. Bee-you-tee-ful sky, […]

We Finished Our Fricking Taxes!

Okay, so today we got our taxes in! Instead of feeling triumphant and awesome, I feel shy and kind of guilty about sharing it. I think I’m worried people will think I’m bragging, or that they will think I’m a nerd for writing about it 🙂 I’m open to ideas from my “Higher Self.” Chris, […]

Day 225: A little goes a long way for me

I have written a few times about being highly sensitive. I have learned to honor this quality in my daily life. For example, although I consider myself very people- and performance-oriented (after all, I am a musician and teacher), after interacting with a lot of people I tend to need time to myself to recharge.

Day 158: A Tale of Two Kitties

He crouches on the ground, watching for movement, awaiting something to chase after, jump on, or claw at. Suitable candidates include: a flash of light on the wall, a moving foot or waving hand, or her. She sits on the bed, stationary in her spot, which she will stay at for as long as possible. […]

Day 49: What is it about the Laundromat? :)

It’s a funny thing about going to the laundromat. I don’t mind it. For several years now, each Friday I have walked our freshly washed clothes (in a hamper, on a dolly) over to the neighborhood laundromat a few blocks away.  You see, Friday we have a weekly housecleaning ritual.  Part of the ritual involves […]
