Mildly Optimistic

It’s That Little Souvenir of a Terrible Year

Good morning friends! Oh, how is it already August? The days are both very long and short. I can't believe another client deadline of 8/31 is nearly here but on the other hand - did my brother really get his kitten only three weeks ago? I thought he had her for two months now.

2018 Recap

Good morning, friends! As I type this, I am drinking coffee, have a knitting project on my lap (I needed a break from the llama amigurumi torso) and am wondering when the Twilight Zone marathon is starting (edit: it's already started, YAY!)  I can hardly believe it is already New Year's Eve.

Enchanted Rock and Fredericksburg Trip

I've been wanting to hike Enchanted Rock for quite awhile.  If you haven't heard of Enchanted Rock before, it's a beautiful pink granite dome located in the Hill Country.  Climbing the Rock is a rite of passage for any Texan.  Before my studies intensified in the summer, I was trying to organize a trip to… Continue reading Enchanted Rock and Fredericksburg Trip
