69. 88 mph

One of the coolest evenings spent in our current house involved a time machine. I was off for the summer, and my husband was coming home late from a contract job. On this particular evening, I was sitting outside and drinking tea, enjoying the weather and waiting for him to come home. Then I get […]

68. Tiger walks

I used to walk one of my cats around on a leash. His name was Tiger. I posted about him earlier here. I would sit in a chair outside on summer days, and he would just walked around on his leash watching birds and catching grasshoppers. Sometimes we would go for walks around the property, […]

67. Christmas Cheer

For some, the holidays are full of family and friends, of laughter and Christmas trees and presents and merry making all around. For others, this time of year brings tension, apprehension, and feelings of sadness. For a lot of people, sometimes it can be a combination of both. I hope you spend this Christmas in […]

66. Appreciate People

When I was single, I would go on a lot of road trips, with friends or most of the time by myself. I have camped in sand dunes, explored caves, hiked through canyons, walked through a meteor crater, and explored many a state park. It made me happy to be able to go out in […]

65. Blacksmithing

The coolest thing I have ever done for an experiment is one summer hooking up with a blacksmith. I called him up, told him what I wanted to do, and he invited me to his home where he had a workshop set up for his own blacksmithing projects. It was sooo awesome. I bought everything, […]

64. Gotta have the breaks

As I sit here and type it has been raining outside. It is so relaxing to listen to the rain fall and kiss the ground. I do most of my blog writing on the weekends. I make little notes on my phone notepad throughout the week of ideas to write about, and when I have […]

63. Smurf Towel

Recently my husband’s brother bought a house about 3 hours away from where we live. A lot of his stuff, like outdoor things and his boat, where being stored at our house until he found a permanent place to live. He hauled his boat down while we pulled a trailer of his loose stuff, with […]

Education/Teaching

62. Memes

I like to include memes in the lectures I give. Covering DNA replication? Got a meme. Going over lab techniques? Have a meme for that. What about the urinary system? I’ve got that squared away too. Memes make everybody laugh, and I try to incorporate that into my lectures. Some of the stuff I cover […]

61. Unkown battles

What do you think defines you? Your looks? Your personality? The Starbucks coffee you drink in the morning? When writing characters in a story, you get to pick whatever traits you want, and make the person as suave as possible or as frail and insecure as you want. The great thing about writing is you […]

60. When the car makes weather

My husband has this love for diesel cars, especially manuals. He loves the extended fuel mileage he gets, which is important because his business takes him all over creation in his car. He is a big car person. He maintains our vehicles to a fault, and some have a ridiculous amount of miles on them. […]
