round about: happy clouds and dancing wigs

Thumbnail image for round about: happy clouds and dancing wigs

March is definitely not starting off with a bang. I’ve talked with several people who all feel the same way: this first week kind of sucked. Things going wrong, stinky attitudes, short tempers, and general discontent. I’m not enjoying it. Apparently, astrologically there’s a reason for it, but I’m not the one to explain it. […]

round about: minimal or hippie it’s all good

Thumbnail image for round about: minimal or hippie it’s all good

This week kind of flew by – which in February I consider a good thing, since every day is one day closer to Spring. Which I’m practically hallucinating for already. But the week included sketching some reindeer, making some banana bread, playing with Birdie, skipping my dentist appointment (don’t worry, I rescheduled), and I wrapped […]

This has been a week. My sweet little Birdie only had a 3-day school week thanks to a faculty retreat. I may work at home, which sounds incredibly convenient when school is out – at least, it sounds convenient to everyone but me! There is still work to do. So, here we are, stumbling through […]

It’s interesting to note that 2016 has so far been a very calm, slow, kind year to me. I can only cross my fingers that it continues. The best parts about this week are little things that turn out to make a big difference towards getting to that calm, peaceful feeling. I’ve started meditating with […]

It has been a slow, introspective kind of week around here. Which I have to say, was so well-deserved. I’m in between big deadlines, and had time to finish up some long overdue things. Plus, there are new Valentines over at Smallful – but don’t worry, I’ll share those with you next week! In the […]

This week flew by in a haze of the usual flotsam and jetsam of life. Not much happened really, and yet each day was full of stuff. You know how it goes: life is in the little things, right? That’s what this week was – one big bowl of little things. So though I don’t have […]
