Cold?

If you live in Minnesota, you’re probably getting ready to hibernate. You might be in your long johns, under a quilt, eating soup, drinking apple cider or whiskey, and preparing to get hunkered down indoors for the day. At least, that’s what I’m planning on doing. I’m just kidding, I wish I had long johns. … Continue reading

The Deep Freeze

Good snowy evening. After peeling my hands off the steering wheel this afternoon and taking some Tylenol to ease the ache in the back of my eyes that came from staring at the icy freeway for forty minutes straight, I can confidently tell you that we were snowed in the rest of the night, and I … Continue reading

List Day

What a week. Thank goodness for Saturdays. It’s cold and rainy out, but tonight a group of us are getting together for chili and games, which sounds like the perfect antidote. Wishing you a happy weekend from St. Regis! I love how Google incorporates art into our everyday searches now. Check out all the past … Continue reading

We Trade

I’m continually grateful that people are so vastly different from each other. One thing I’ve been finding comfort in: everyone does NOT think the same way that I do. For example, maybe you feel embarrassed tripping on stage because you always feel embarrassed and awkward for others when they trip on stage. Maybe you feel you … Continue reading

All My Plants Are Dead

As soon as I walk out on the porch, I know that we’ve killed all the plants. I’ve always wished to be a green thumb. When we moved to our apartment in St. Paul, it seemed that the porches on the front of the old buildings were meant to have blooms and ferns pressing against the … Continue reading

Who Isn’t Busy These Days?

I’ve found that it’s often very hard for me to go through a day without feeling like I’ve accomplished something. And it can’t be something “everyday-like” that I accomplish—it always has to be something from a lingering to-do list or at least a “medium-level” accomplishment. I have to finish freelance writing or hang all the … Continue reading

Seasons

During some season of life, all you can really do is post the music that you’ve been listening to. This is what I’ve been hearing in the car to work, while I shower, and in my room at night. Sometimes I play songs when I cook and often when I run (although listening to audio … Continue reading
