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…

July 4

It’s Independence Day here in the USA. It’s also a Monday so that means our weekend is a little longer than usual and those of us that like to sleep in got a little extra time with our pillows. However, at around 5:30 am this morning I woke up and remembered that my alarm would…

What I’m Into Right Now

I haven’t been able to decide what I want to write about, so I’m going to write a little bit about a few of the things I’m doing these days. It seems I’ve turned into the “woman who lives alone and goes days without leaving the house, watches birds and Ozark, dances in her living…

The Sunday Post: 100 Days of Gratitude

I found this post from a year ago while scrolling through some messages. I was thinking about where I was a year ago this week, remembering how I was feeling just a few days after taking my relationship with S to the next level, and just a few days before my solo vacation to Savannah….

The Sunday Post: Brunch

It’s the calm before the storm. That time soon before your guests arrive. You look in the fridge, wondering if you’ve forgotten something. (Like that time we left a whole tray of cocktail shrimp in there and only found it as we were putting things away.) The table is set, the oven’s warming up. You’re…

The Sunday Post: The Bright Side

I awoke this morning to the ping of a message on my phone letting me know the power was out in my neighborhood and was most likely out in my condo. I guess if I’d been awake I would have figured that out for myself already, but after a quick check to my bedside lamp,…
