I hadn't talked about this before, just thought about what would be appropriate to post. I was definitely down the week I discovered this and didn't want to say something stupid or too down. I'll be losing my job in September. It was limited term employment, but they were expecting to renew. Instead, office politics … Continue reading Losing My Job
I've been watching a lot of watercolor YouTube videos lately, and when I got my wellness initiative from work, I bought a few things to try them out. Since it's summer, the first one I did was a Kitsune with the red thread of destiny in a swim suit. I love Kitsune and the legend … Continue reading New Watercolors
One of my friends has earned her PhD in Computer Science, and I'm super excited for her! She's married and has two wee children, and her husband watched them and worked from home while she worked on her Masters and then her PhD. It was a TON of work, and she struggled at times, but … Continue reading Congratulations to My Friend
So, this is kind of my husband's story, but he gave me permission to post it on my blog. My husband was driving to work early last week, when he saw a deer at the side of the road stomping on something. He beeped his horn, the deer bolted, and he got out to check … Continue reading We Rescued A Kitten… From A Deer?
Here's our last photo of our three cars together. My husband's is the blue Subaru Legacy Sedan, my current car is the green Subaru Outback Wagon, and in the background is our sad Subaru Forester. The SF generation of Subaru's have problems with blowing head gaskets, which our lovely Forester did. This was especially frustrating, … Continue reading Goodbye Forester
I know I've posted a lot of YouTube links lately, but I'm really not doing so hot, had some bad news that has us off balance and scrambling, and I really just want to veg and read or watch YouTube. Today's is Emily Artful's Channel, and while I don't care for most of her art, … Continue reading Interesting Things Just For You: Emily Artful’s YouTube Channel
This last winter, we fed the birds because the snow got a bit crazy, and I was worried the little feathered mooches would die. So we bought a bag of sunflower seeds and a bag of mealworms. We eventually used up the sunflower and stopped feeding them. I stashed the mealworm bag under my desk … Continue reading Mealworms, Mealworms Everywhere!
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
There are, I feel, remarkably few things as Zen as watching someone put on make up. I love looking at theatrical or costume make up, but PONY Syndrome's channel caught my eye because of the sweet commentary and a more subdued Asian style of make up. Most of her more recent videos have subtitles, and … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: PONY Syndrome YouTube Channel
Asian Boss is a channel that interviews in Asian on a variety of topics. Some are asking the general public questions, and some are serious interviews with an expert on the topic. These are subtitled, and I feel they're both accessible and respectful to the people interviewed. Quite a few of them are in Japanese, … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Asian Boss YouTube Channel
