this spring

March and April have blended into one. Some things of note this spring:

  • Nissan Prime has gone to her new home, my Dad!
  • I went pink, and now I’m back to regular purplish brown
  • My loans are paid off! *knocks on wood* I’m debt free until my new vehicle arrives…
  • We went through an alert level change, so I’m back to work in my office tomorrow
  • Jeffrey and I will celebrate our one year anniversary next week!
  • Grace is still cool af
  • I bought 3 boxes of old VHS from a lady and scored a lot of old horror movies (like 60s), and WWF wrestling shows (which Jeff is happy about)
  • Been reading, and painting

Here’s some snaps.

Bonfire Night, And Nights Beyond

One of my favorite things about fall, as it passes into winter, is having campfires – whether they’re in your backyard, in the woods, or on a riverbank somewhere. Guy Fawkes Night, aka Bonfire Night, is one of my favorite nights of the year. Here are a few photos and videos from recent fires with Jeffrey and the family.

Stay safe,

Movements

We’re ending off the first week of June and a few changes are underway. Unfortunately I (we) have to move from base housing and into another place. I will miss it up here, the quiet, the security, the cheap rent….

I’ll miss being able to just take my bike out the front door and almost be instantly on a safe bike lane. I’ll miss the space, the bright windows, the feeling of home that I’ve had for the first time in a long time.

With any hope, my friends and I (current roommates) will be renting a detached house in the lower valley. We’re supposed to be viewing it soon. Big back yard, nice back deck, and hopefully access to a garage as well. I’m not excited about packing up and moving again, especially disassembling and moving my squat rack and 350 pounds of weights back upstairs. Ugh.

Positive spin? Yes hey? I’ve got friends and family that are down to help us relocate. That’s always a good thing. And hopefully, I’ll get a bigger bedroom this time lol.

Here’s some pictures from the last couple of weeks, including a recent long weekend I took at home.

Love,
M.
