Mediocre Moments and PB&J

As I sit and gaze out the window at the brick house across the street I ponder life’s great coffees… oohmpf! I mean moments. I’m thinking about how me, a farmer’s daughter ended up a thousand miles from home living a “city” life. Though I guess anyone in this city’d tell ya that this ain’tContinue reading “Mediocre Moments and PB&J”

Blase Interview—-and Psychiatry

I slide my fingers lazily down my coffee cup as I sip chamomile tea. The box said stress relief and boy do I ever need that.

Omega 3 Peanut Butter and Mixed Oaxaca Coffee

So I woke in my somewhat stifled bedroom weary with thoughts of my upcoming interview today. Which, honestly is the biggest interview of my life. I’m deep down a bit terrified;if not visibly.

Fine Balance

The Revisiting of Old Friendships and Pecan Pancakes

To rekindle with a friend from long ago is such a blessing. This morning I awoke to the sun streaming in my window. Kind of a shock when your so used to waking before the sun.

Airing out your House

With my camo ball cap pulled over my bun, I spray the Ozium deodorizer in my room I make for the exit. 30 minutes later I return to clean fresh air. This reminds me of patience some things in life take time. And some things require prudent decision making. Airing out decisions. Like relationships takeContinue reading “Airing out your House”
