  • Day ll – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    It’s the 4th of July, so did some celebrating, but kept it pretty chill and close to home. My husband and I cooked out (butter burgers, chips, and corn on the cob) and then followed that up with some ice cream (strawberry shortcake flavored). I did get a little bit of exercise in by going […]

  • Poetry – New Year, Same old Sh@#

    I was going to try to write a cheery New Year’s poem…oh well, maybe next year. “New Year, Same Old Shit” 200,000 crowns could never satisfy the heads of those born unto the spirit of entitlement. Nor would 200,000 bodies – as more than that have already been stepped over or kicked aside by royal […]

  • Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!

    I am feeling lazy today, but I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas Eve and Christmas Day tomorrow if you celebrate those holidays. I plan to have a quiet holiday here at home with my husband: enjoying our presents, going out for Christmas dinner (probably Chinese since nowhere else […]

  • A Couple Christmas Themed Collages

    Here are a couple Christmas themed ACEO collages I made this year! Both were made with Christmas washi tape found at Michaels and other art supplies I had on hand. The first collage is still up for sale on my Ebay store, but the 2nd one (the cat themed one) was actually made as a […]

  • 2019 Yule Altar (So Far)

    I was excited as soon as Thanksgiving was over to put up my Yule altar. I’m not sure if this is the finished version for the season or not, but I liked the way it looked so far and thought I would share a pic: My favorite touches this year are the red Reindeer candle […]

  • Yule Colors This Year

    For Yule/Christmas this year, I’ve decided to do a black, white, and red color scheme. Here is the first bit of decorating I’ve done: I’ve always wanted a black Christmas tree, so I bought a two foot one, and then decorated it with white lights, red tinsel/star, and bulbs/ornaments in all three colors. Now I […]

  • Wordless Wednesday – Halloween Tree & Decorations

    (Still need more tiny ornaments for the tree, but so far so good)

  • Complicated Mother’s Day

    Mother’s Day always creates such a barrage of mixed emotions for me. There was a lot of trauma, abuse, mental illness, and foolish decisions that marked my childhood. My mother was far from a perfect parent. Luckily, she does admit to that and seems to be really trying to be a better person now, but […]
