Christmas Story 2020 part 1..

First Sunday of Advent Scary sounds came from the enormous kitchen. Shouting, clattering of pots and pans. The sound of something hitting the floor – breaking. It sounded like someone had broken in and was in the middle of searching through everything. The sound of crying could be heard behind the noises. Pepper Mintstix ran […]

Thank you!..

There’s no Thanksgiving tradition here – that I know of. Some places the Harvest festival is celebrated and for the same reason. It’s held – if it’s held – when the main harvest is over. The exact date varies and since I’ve never attended one I don’t know anything about it. But Thanksgiving is something […]

Carrots and chimneys..

Sometimes Moxxi is too smart. Went to the store to get some coffee and ended up also buying vegetables, naan bread and some other stuff that wasn’t on the list. Typical. When I got home the grocery bag was inspected very thoroughly in case I forgot something for the doggo. Of course I didn’t – […]

Sweet journey..

Sometimes I’m lucky and it’s possible to follow a thing from the beginning to the end. I find it oddly satisfying and I’ve always found it interesting (and necessary) to know where things come from and how they’re made.The sugar that’s used in so many things can come from sugar canes and also from sugar […]

Test Driving The Limo..

I predicted that I would need help to some degree after my involuntary visit to hospital, so I decided to buy my self a limo. Always wanted one of those. Of course I can’t afford a real limo, but this will do fine. To be fair I did send someone to buy it because I […]

Realization..

Maybe I can make a proper post now. The worst rollercoaster feelings are gone and left is a more clear understanding of the situation and a more focused perspective on things. There’s not really any panic or anxiety left, just a stubborn determination – a defiance that won’t be silenced. Life threw another curveball at […]

Update – Out of order..

Back from hospital. People are still being jerks, I won’t take that back because it’s still true. Still not good at keeping their distance unless it’s a special place like the hospital. That was amazing to experience, so different than what’s going on in public places. When I got “released” I made my way to […]

Losing the head..

A scratching sound.. He turned his back to it. It sounded like something was approaching. A faint chitinous sound that grew louder. Something tugged at the edge of the duvet. He turned again. Small pressure points moving across it as if something was walking on it. He turned around again covering his head with the […]

Apple goodness..

The apple tree was very productive this year. It’s a very young tree but it yielded seven pounds of healthy deliciousness. The apple sauce I made a week ago has been living in the freezer because I wanted to wait posting until I had at least a couple of dishes containing this wonderful fall gift. […]

Difference..

Things aren’t always the same. To one person a thing is this way. To another it’s another way. Neither are wrong. Like when some uses one knitting style and another uses a different style. As far as I know there are five “big” styles of knitting and then there’s all the variations. Every one of […]
