Let’s begin again

I’ve been so busy reading (20+ books so far this year) that I haven’t had a chance to write. I did start writing something down by the pool about a month ago, but it was too sunny to see the screen so I didn’t write for long. I’ve been going to the pool almost every…

The Sunday Post: 7 More Days

Just seven more days left. One week. After nearly three years of living alone for the first time, that period of my life will be over. Hopefully, that will be the one and only time. This time three years ago I had no idea what was around the corner for “us.” But I knew something…

April

It’s National Poetry Month and it would be great if a few lovely verses would start flowing magically to this keyboard just because it’s April, but it’s not likely. But as I said the other day, I’ve been thinking about writing more, so that’s a start, right? I was re-reading some of the poetry I’ve…

Hello, old friend

Well hello there. Remember me? There have been so many moments over the last couple of months that I wanted to stop and write for a few minutes, but somehow those moments slipped through my fingers without them reaching for the keyboard. Or this particular keyboard at least. It’s been a busy few months and…

Music Fridays: Let’s Catch Up

It’s been a minute! The other day I was wondering about the fact that I’ve been getting a lot of likes on some older posts despite not having written anything in a while. I don’t think there’s any correlation, but it did make me wonder if I should post more regularly or less regularly. Anyway,…

The Adventures Continue

Last weekend had a few firsts for me. I learned how to play backgammon Friday and both games were close! Granted, S gave me lots of tips and hints, so it probably would have been a blowout otherwise. But it was fun! The next morning we headed to the Saluda River for tubing! I know…not…

The Sunday Post: Deck Thoughts

We’re looking at houses today. I know, I know…but we’re not planning to make an offer or try to buy any of these houses. We’re just looking. But I’ll back up a little bit. Yesterday morning S came over for breakfast. It started as a joke, I guess when he texted me Friday night and…

Music Fridays: Hypotheticals

Happy Friday! Dry July is over! I had the pleasure of S’s company for a little while yesterday now that he’s feeling better and through the quarantine period. He returned to work today and we have a dinner date tomorrow night. He’s mentioned once or twice that he’d like to talk about how we felt…

The Sunday Post: Dry July

Is it over yet? It’s been almost two weeks since I saw S and it feels like two months. I’m back from my work trip and now he’s on one of his own and won’t be back until the end of the week. I’ve been trying to stay busy. Work has helped; there’s always plenty…
