5 musical notes that do not strike a chord with me…

So… generally speaking, I try never to think negatively or be totally obnoxious or rude in any way. But sometimes…… Spoiler alert: I have a few complaints that I need to get out of my system. I pre-apologize for insulting anyone else’s musical tastes and/or musical ability. Here goes… Well, let’s see… How do I…

Interesting juxtaposition?…

So… I have this necklace that I can’t remember ever wearing. I think my mom gave it to me, because she often gives my sisters and I jewelry for Christmas and birthday… It’s a silver heart locket (empty). The chain has a magnetic clasp. And I figured today that I would give it a whirl……

Misc. Tuesday Thoughts…

I’m in the middle of writing a blog post for work about this weekend’s royal wedding.* I have decided to take a mental break because it’s that time of year when so many things collide and I’m finding it difficult to focus on royalty and romance. Instead, I have these topics spinning in my head:…

Untangled… or is that de-tangled…?

I just thought you’d like to know that I finally got new glasses over Spring Break. So the pink dollar-store reading glasses with their beaded necklace are set aside until I eventually wear my contacts again. Here’s a montage I set up on my desk at work to highlight the purple sophistication of my new…

Comedy + Romance + Mystery = My 3 Favorite TV Show Episodes

So… I was just watching something on TV and realized that it was one of my all-time favorite episodes — not just of that TV show, but of any TV show. And then I started thinking about all of my other favorite episodes of various TV shows… There are, of course, many… but these are…

I didn’t do it! Or did I?…

IT WAS MURDER! I shall explain. I attended a murder mystery party at my sister’s house on Saturday night. I will attempt not to give anything away in case you ever find yourself at the particular event I attended: The Ravenwood Masquerade Murder. My character’s name was Reese Cerulean… which means I had to dress…

Understand me…

This is how I inadvertently complicate my life… See that skinny white wire (my earbuds) there on the left and those pink eyeglass beads on the right? And the way they are criss-crossed with each other in the middle? If you wonder what I do all day at work these days… it involves untangling myself…

It’s all in the details: Another visit to Sully Historic Site…

So… we visited Sully Historic Site again last fall because… why not? Actually, we did have a reason: In the first week of school, the students in my daughter’s class were assigned a major project that was going to be due the week of Thanksgiving. It required students to go on a “Family Field Trip”…

Catching up…

I notice it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted. Nothing much has happened in that time, but I’ll share some thoughts anyway… The New Employee By now, I’ve gotten over the shock of him looking quite like the young man I once knew in college. I’ve discovered that besides their dark hair and…

Reunions…

So… my high school reunion happened over the weekend. I didn’t go. 😐  But the photos looked fun. In other news… A new employee on my team started today. I’m his manager. A few notes… His last name is Smith. He’s a Capricorn. … And I’m mathematically twice his age. This should be interesting. Happy…

Partnerships and observations…

Let’s talk about this season’s Nutcracker rehearsals, shall we?… And Jane’s continued attempt to find a new man with whom to share her world. First… Nutcracker. So, I don’t recall whether or not I shared with you last year that my dance partner could not dance… Okay, wait.  Let me back up and start from…

Dr. Love will see you now…

Umm… that would be me. I know this may come as a great shock to you, but I give totally awesome romance and relationship advice. This, according to my friend, let’s call her “Jane”, who is going out on a plethora of dates these days with a variety of men, and has nicknamed me “Dr….

Sooo close, I can feel it…

So… what do you think it is? August/September (etc.) activities: ✔ New haircut ✔ New membership at my old gym ✔ Taking Yoga & Zumba classes again* ✔ Cutting sugar & carbs from my diet, just because (mostly) ✔ Eating ultra-healthful-ly (kind of/probably not) ✔ Starting Nutcracker rehearsals this weekend ✔ Working on home repairs…

Another summer comes to an end…

Free-flowing hair that falls softly across his eyes… just one of the many things I love about Justin Hayward. ♥ Happy fall. That is all. 🙂
