TWITL – week nineteen – cherry picking

TWITL – week nineteen – cherry picking

After a week of summer-like weather, Saturday morning was nice and cool. My cousins came out to pick some cherries and we met them at one of the ranches. We have lived out this way for over a decade but we’ve never gone cherry picking. It was a little chilly to start but it warmed…

TWITL – week eighteen – so much warm sunshine

TWITL – week eighteen – so much warm sunshine

Why does it feel like spring doesn’t last as long as it should out this way? I would love two weeks straight of temperatures in the 70s. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is because these days are in the 80s or even warmer. Alas! The work week after my birthday was only…

TWITL – week eleven – springtime beginnings

TWITL – week eleven – springtime beginnings

And just like that, it’s now spring! It’s been a bit chilly in the mornings but the afternoons are warming up and it looks like it’ll be getting warmer in the coming days. I still don’t know if I’m ready for it. Alas. The Cuddle Puddle Nation had another Zoom chat this past weekend. How…

TWITL – week ten – still sweater weather

TWITL – week ten – still sweater weather

We did manage to have a bit of rain early in the week but now it’s all sunshine with cool temperatures. I don’t mind sweater weather, truly. I’m not really ready for spring quite yet but it’s coming… MOVIES Yellow Rose – Another quiet sort of movie and one that certainly hits me in an…

TWITL – week thirty-three – first week of school

The first week of school was certainly much different than in previous years but we still received a lot of phone calls and questions. It’s just that this time much of the questions were technology based. I tried to be as helpful as possible. It was certainly quite interesting. We’re in the triple digits right…

TWITL – week eleven – the world keeps spinning

TWITL – week eleven – the world keeps spinning

Let’s get this out of the way– I am freaking out about COVID-19. I read too much stuff on social media (some of it comforting, some of it alarming), my personal chats online range from conjectures to practical advice, I’m worrying about the local businesses out there. Our schools are on spring break, something that…

TWITL – week five – winter days

TWITL – week five – winter days

I can’t believe January 2020 has already come to an end. Now begins my busiest month of the year at work. Transfers and transfers and more transfers! I’ll have to say the same thing every day at least ten times a day if not more. Oh, and I must not sound as if it’s the…

TWITL – week two – a long winter week

TWITL – week two – a long winter week

It was the first week after winter break and lo, it felt like the longest week EVER. For some reason, the cold I thought I’d beaten during break came back to spend time with me as the routine of work once more began. Thankfully it was more annoying than anything. Oh, and I could still…
