TWITL – week twenty – a little retail therapy

TWITL – week twenty – a little retail therapy

I went a good run of NOT buying stuff online but then the emails detailing sales here and there drew me in for some retail therapy. My biggest purchase actually stemmed from reading an article about a great sale on a Chromebook. It was such a great deal that I couldn’t resist. HP Chromebook x2…

TWITL – week twelve – middle of spring break

TWITL – week twelve – middle of spring break

It’s the middle of spring break and I’m in the midst of a four day weekend. (This will probably post on Monday sometime, I think.) It’s raining outside but I can’t really hear it right now. I peeked out the window and I think I see little drops in the puddles. We hit the farmers…

TWITL – week forty-nine – y’all can hustle and bustle

TWITL – week forty-nine – y’all can hustle and bustle

Ah, December. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is busy for most people. People worrying about sending holiday cards, decorating their homes, shopping for loved ones, attending holiday/end of year parties. We don’t do any of that, except sending a holiday card or two (still need to do that!) and maybe the odd party here…

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 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-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 twenty – I’m not giving up my @

It’s first come, first served when it comes from your profile names on social media. Everyone knows that, right? So why do people think they can ask or demand or give a sad story for the name you chose as your profile name? I don’t go around contacting all the people who have “Valerie” as…

TWITL – week forty-three – almost cooler days

TWITL – week forty-three – almost cooler days

It’s Friday evening as I begin this post. Let’s see when I actually publish it. (I’ll have to remember to comment at the end…) Today it was cool enough for me to wear a long sleeved flannel. Fine, it was unbuttoned over a tank top but still! Even more, I didn’t get hot during the…
