Time to get creative

In reading my blog lately, you may have noticed I talk a lot about changes and changing and things going downhill and all that. Without going into details, I’ll just say that, after buying the house, I moved into an apartment. I think that sentence is enough to express the heaviness and sadness and confusionContinue reading “Time to get creative”

I don’t mean to brag, but…

I decided to make my coworkers a ginormous batch of cookies for the day after Christmas. All but one of us in the precinct is working the day after (aka “the Show”), and I think we’ll need some extra cheer during our busiest – and likely lowest attitude – day. And JT had us closeContinue reading “I don’t mean to brag, but…”

Comfort in trivial things

I had my project for this post done yesterday, but I felt…silly, I guess, for wanting to post about it.

If my work is questioned minutely on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday, I simply proveContinue reading “At least I remembered my password”

Twofer Tuesday 1: Guest Post!

And I’m back, with a vengeance! Not quite that bad. I was gone for the weekend, visiting friends up in Traverse City. Had a great time, but did not get to writing or crafting so much. No worries, though! My mom, who is an actual, professional writer, was telling me about the cobbler she’s beenContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: Guest Post!”

Mmmm! Cookies! (And TARDIS update)

Nothing says warm weather like baking! Well, okay, maybe that’s not entirely true, but I decided to try a new cookie recipe today. You can find it here. If you’re not a recipe-reading type, then I will give you the basics: whole wheat flour, oats, granulated and brown sugar, vanilla, egg, baking powder, salt, butter,Continue reading “Mmmm! Cookies!
