Semi-Recent Journal Entry

I’ve been terrible with my journal writing. And I really need to do it because there’s a lot of shit that’s been going on and it needs to get out of my head and onto paper.  I’d love it if that pensieve from Harry Potter could get made.  That’d be awesome.

TBT: Backgammon

I don’t know when I took this picture. Google pictures says “a long time ago.” Thanks, google.

Random Photo Saturday

Okay, so it's not exactly a thousand cranes...it might not even be a dozen.

One of my closest and best friends made me a little box of cranes last year for Christmas. They were so lovely, I decided to put them in a mason jar so I can see them whenever I want.

This display made me want to dance.

Last night, we went out to dinner (like you do on a Friday night) to a neighborhood that crossed both river and tunnel (Some in our city would *never* do a thing like this and we can’t imagine it.) and walking back to the car we noticed this display.  Now, I know you can’t see it, but they are all little dancing toys powered by the sun.

It was adorable and I had to snap a picture of it.

And now, you have it too.

55 Fridays: Fallingwater (+3)

Words alone cannot describe Fallingwater.  It is graceful, warm, inviting, romantic, and surprising.  Pictures cannot do this home justice either.  They can’t capture the way the home catches the wind from the stream and cools a room.  It can’t describe how peaceful it feels either.

I swear both my yoga sessions had me doing planks.

In the sun.

While I greatly enjoyed both sessions, I thought I was going to melt.

🙂

That is all.

Happy Sunday Evening, y’all.

TBT: July 2, 2014 (Journal Entry)

I had my egg retrieval yesterday.  She was able to get 6 eggs, five were fertilized and three are growing.  So, now we wait to see if it is a three-day or five-day transfer.  She was only to get eggs from the left side.  I wonder why not the right?  I vaguely remember them saying something about not getting to the right or not being able to.  But I don’t remember much from when I went to sleep.  I may have vaguely remember getting up on the table but my mind could have been playing tricks on me.

I do remember saying that I was really cold despite having three blankets  (as my husband told me later) and being in pain.

I felt like I Had more pain this time than the first time.  But I could be remembering incorrectly.  They (and I don’t know who “they” are) say that women forget the absolute agony of child birth.  It’s an evolutionary response in order to produce more offspring.  Or at least that’s what I’ve read.

Journal #62 that I made from scrap paper, used envelopes, and a very old interoffice envelope.

The Dirty Poet: locked brakes

Found outside the telephone pole of the local grocery store.

By the way, this is very much not my poem.

My container garden can’t be contained

Hello, I am a pepper.  I will eventually get eaten.
Hello, I am a pepper. I will eventually get eaten.
I am a tomato.  I too will eventually be eaten.
I am a tomato. I too will eventually be eaten.

Finally! My container garden is producing results!!

I’ve got more pictures here if you’re interested in taking a look. The flowers are going to get out of control, but I don’t mind. It’s cool that I might have out of control flowers. I like the pop of color it brings to the house.

Anyway, I was super excited to see that lovely little pepper when I came home tonight from yoga.

The original date says February 16, 2013.

I don’t know if it’s completely accurate. But I do know that my hair tells me that it’s within the past two years.
