Happy 2021

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a cozy winter break. Ours was good. I definitely felt sad at points - we ended up not going on our camping trip (which was the right decision) and we missed our families. I think the night before my brother's birthday made me the saddest, since I… Continue reading Happy 2021

It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

Hello friends. Happy Sunday. Five days left before Christmas, and eleven more days in this garbage year. But at least we've approved a second vaccine in the US! I feel like the light is finally at the end of the tunnel with this pandemic. I follow several medical professionals/science communicators on Instagram for COVID info,… Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

An Update from the Grinch

Less than a month left in this terrible year and two weeks until Christmas. Two weeks?! I already want to fast-forward during the holidays when it's a normal year. I suppose the one benefit of staying at home most of the time is that I am not subjected to Christmas music while shopping. We haven't… Continue reading An Update from the Grinch

‘Tis the Season

Happy Thanksgiving friends! This month has flown away from me and I can hardly believe it.  Work has been very busy and stressful. Lots of deliverables, lots of those ~hard-earned~ lessons about project management as I continue working through this steep learning curve. Can't I just skip the part where I make mistakes so I… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season

Happy 2019 (With a Hike and Little Trip Down Memory Lane)

Happy New Year, friends!  I hope you all had a great start to the new year.  We had a ~wild and crazy night~ of watching the Twilight Zone marathon while I knitted and provided emotional support to my dog.  I fell asleep around 11 but woke up just before midnight.  In my 20s, I went… Continue reading Happy 2019 (With a Hike and Little Trip Down Memory Lane)

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
