And onward to 2022. I’m not going to wish that it’s better than the last. I’m afraid of tempting the Fates. Lol.Continue reading “J is for January Prompt”
Yes, I am old enough to remember having to navigate by either atlas or state map when we were doing road trips. In fact, I still prefer “seeing” where I need to go rather than being directed that way by GPS.Continue reading “M is for Map Reading”
She heard him walking in the hayloft of the barn. He was looking for the perfect photograph angle for his new campaign and they had been scouting out locations for three hours.Continue reading “M is for Muse”
You’d think that having grown up in land-locked states my entire life that I wouldn’t really love seafood.Continue reading “S is for Scallops”
We finally scored a great table on the ship – right on the railing, all by ourselves, just taking time to relax and enjoy our dinner. It was a long day on the water, and the sunset is just the perfect end to the day.
We’ve been enjoying a glass or two of wine this evening, waiting for our table, and then sitting here, we have that perfect blend of attentive, but not around, service. It’s really great.Continue reading “Slippery Little Devil: The One That Got Away”
X marks the spot, right?Continue reading “T is for Treasure Map”
I finally gave in. I’ve had enough. I bought one of those silly Mute buttons you see for online calls – where you push the button, you’re muted, no matter what software you have, it figures it out and even lights up to say “hey, nobody can hear you…” I’ve had my fill of online calls and video calls.Continue reading “It’s Not Like It’s a Video Call…”
Sometimes, it’s all about the smallest things.
Those things that say when someone really has their guard down, is totally in the moment and completely… relaxed. Well, I don’t know about totally relaxed, but she does have a tell.Continue reading “The Strangest, Sexiest Idiosyncracies – Singing Along”
We are in Portland right now. It’s almost always rainy, but this time it’s been drier than usual. Still definitely chillier than Tucson, but the weather has been gorgeous.Continue reading “S is for Snowy”
I’ve been reading along with different people’s thoughts and ideas for 2022. Not necessarily resolutions, but just sort of setting the stage for how to approach the new year. I’m not sure why people do this at the end of the year (why not July 1?) or whatever, but here I am, doing the same, and feeling like it’s time for a different approach, right along with so many others.Continue reading “Choosing My/Our 2022”
One of Snake’s tricks is to change up the focal length on most shots so we have choices. I loved the way the focus is really quite out of focus in this particular one.Continue reading “F is for Focus”
She was still sleeping while he snuck out to the store to get some fruit, some orange juice and a cheap bottle of champagne. They’d been up late and he figured that he had time to make pancakes and mimosas before she woke up.Continue reading “S is for Sweet, or is it Sour?”
We have strict rules about O’s for me. Permission first. I guess I should say, a strict rule. That’s it, that’s the rule.
For 5 years in this D/sFLR, I’ve actually done really well and haven’t screwed up yet. Yes, she’s been known to force the issue when she feels like it and override my not letting things get too far, taking it from me, as it were. But just flat out getting it wrong? I’ve always been pretty proud about not crossing the proverbial line in the sand.Continue reading “It Finally Happened… I Lost It”
She was standing in the snow and listening to the silence. Mitch had gone back to the car for his hat and gloves before they went for a walk.Continue reading “S is for Snowball Fight”
The past two years have been a rude awakening for everyone that I know. We all talk about getting back to normal, but I don’t know what that would even look like at this point.Continue reading “G is for Going Forward”
Trying to come up with my favorite mug is like choosing a favorite child. I don’t buy sets of mugs. Each one is unique and has been chosen or given to me because of the meaning.Continue reading “My Mug That is a Pot”
Well, I didn’t really have any photos about time to share, but this one does have a watch…does that count?Continue reading “W is for Watch”
It was the third day she had been doing yoga. She wasn’t really into the spiritual side, but she thought it was a good way to start the new year. Who couldn’t use a little peace?Continue reading “M is for Meditation”
In a lot of ways, 2021 was pretty awful. Everyone that I know lost someone to Covid. Life as we’ve always known it seems to have been permanently changed.Continue reading “L is for Looking Back”
She was sitting at the bar by the window in the coffee shop. She was writing in a notebook and seemed oblivious to the morning rush hour around her.Continue reading “B is for Bullet Journal”
The holiday celebrations are over and the decorations are put away for another year. We didn’t decorate much because we traveled, but it’s still nice to know it’s put away.Continue reading “F is for Flame”
Time to end this year and getting ready for the next. What’s better than a disco ball to light things up?Continue reading “N is for New Year’s Eve”
It’s been a long, long day at work. We decided to head out and get some dinner, relax a little and try to unplug from the garbage that had gone down.
Dinner was good, the glass of wine was better.
As we head home, we decide to take the scenic route – through the foothills, through the more back-roads ways back to the house. We’re talking bout anything, and nothing. And we’re certainly not talking about work.Continue reading “Swinging…”
Looking back over the past 6+ years, you’d think that most popular posts would be somewhat evenly spread over the time. Nope.Continue reading “T is for Top 10”
