TWITL – week forty-two – here comes the rain

We’re in the middle of a few rainy days and I don’t mind at all. Looks to be over by Monday morning so must enjoy it now. We certainly need the rain out this way. I’m just glad we didn’t have much to do but sit here and watch football. MOVIES Dune – We headed…

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break’s end

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break’s end

Here we are at the end of fall break. Second quarter begins for the students out this way. I actually like this time of year because the weather cools and we get lots of days off from now until the end of the calendar year. Ray Fosse died this past week and the news gave…

TWITL – week forty – fall break

TWITL – week forty – fall break

We’re in the middle of fall break here, which is why I’m writing this post on Monday morning. I decided to take the Mondays and Fridays off, which meant a four day weekend last weekend (because I took the Friday off for the concert), a four day weekend for this weekend, and a three day…

TWITL – week thirty nine – the other happy place

TWITL – week thirty nine – the other happy place

If baseball is my happy place, then concerts featuring my favorites is my other happy place. So Friday we headed to Sacramento for the first stop of the Blessed & Free tour. The headliner was Kane Brown but I was there to see Jordan Davis. We left our place in the afternoon and as it…

TWITL – week thirty-eight – autumn begins

The first day of autumn was the middle of this past week but the summer weather is still going strong. I’m hoping the triple digits are behind us but we shall see. We went to our first baseball game of the season, which happened to be the last home game of the season. We were…

TWITL – week thirty-seven – musical bright spots

I almost named this post “the final straw” but how melodramatic is that? Explanation perhaps at the end. “11:11” – Ben Barnes – I’m easy when it comes to my fellas so of course I’m adoring this new song. I’m just happy I’m liking something other than country music (which of course I still LOVE).…

TWITL – week thirty-six – what we remember

TWITL – week thirty-six – what we remember

As I write now, it’s September 11, 2021. Twenty years since 9/11. I won’t post this today but I thought I’d take that moment to pause, as one does on this day but I suppose especially this day twenty years later. What did we learn from that day, from those days after, from that moment…

TWITL – week thirty-five – Happy Labor Day

TWITL – week thirty-five – Happy Labor Day

I do so love the three day weekends. August feels like the longest month, work-wise, because there are neither holidays nor breaks in all that month. It’s just work on the weekdays and then the weekend. It’s always such a relief to get through it. I started working overtime this week. I know, me, overtime?…
