Be still my heart. One of my clinging to hope activities was to periodically check the UPS tracking number for the return of my passport on the off chance that UKVI returned it without notifying me. And wouldn’t you know it? That’s almost exactly what happened. On Friday (March 17th), the tracking suddenly listed myContinue reading “Visa Saga Update: Success”

Tuesday was Valentine’s Day, but now is when to buy candy and romantic gifts. Shopping holiday clearance is a joy to me. I recently purchased a gingerbread house kit for $1.19 from one store’s Christmas clearance section to do with my sister next month to herald springtime. And really, it’s not like chocolate goes badContinue reading “Fertile Soil”
Souls hibernate too.
Rather than simply watching Groundhog Day on the 2nd, I also watched the livestream of the real Punxsutawney Phil. Just like in the movie, he saw his shadow and declared six more weeks of winter. It’s almost like the season starts on the vernal equinox or something. Haha! It’s March 20th this year, by theContinue reading “Souls hibernate too.”
Photo Blog Month
I’ve decided to give NaNoWriMo a shot this year. I did it a few times in years past and won two or three times, but that was a long time ago. Time to try again! That being the case, I’m going to blog for the next few weeks the same way I did last week:Continue reading “Photo Blog Month”
And now for something completely different!
I didn’t feel like going with my usual format this week. I’m not sure why. Instead, I’m going to share photos I took in one of my favorite places of all time: Queen Mary’s Gardens in the Regent’s Park in London. These are from trips in 2016 and 2017. Any description beyond what the imagesContinue reading “And now for something completely different!”
If you go into the woods today…
The first of May, also known as Mayday or Beltane, is a day a romance and life. It’s the midpoint between the spring equinox and summer solstice, and flowers are in full bloom. Dance the maypole with a group, go a-maying with your sweetheart, or have a nice bath and remember to love yourself. TwoContinue reading “If you go into the woods today…”
I had a rough week. Head cold then ate some stuff that really didn’t agree with me, and my workout yesterday has absolutely destroyed me even though I only did my normal cardio routine. My muscles hurt. Very bizarre. I have accomplished almost all the tasks I needed to do in March and April. TheContinue reading “Grouchy Noises”
Ha ha ha! Egg-cellent
For Easter, my family knocks eggs (a Cajun tradition also known as “egg pocking”). Yes, the children get baskets of sweet and little gifts (usually sidewalk chalk and new bathing suits) and hunt for plastic eggs in the yard and garden, but everyone knocks eggs. What is knocking eggs? I’ve only ever met one personContinue reading “Ha ha ha! Egg-cellent”
April is just around the corner, bringing with it more springy spring weather. Hopefully it won’t be too summery. I’m in no rush for the arrival of Louisiana’s warmer weather. Just thinking about it makes me sweat. The rain and cool breezes should feel free to stay as far as I’m concerned. Visa Saga Update:Continue reading “Lovefool”
Happy Vernal Equinox!
Spring springs into being today! Happy Ostara! On this day there is a balance between day and night because the sun is exactly above the Equator. Life is balanced at the moment for me. Stress and anxiety for my visa application – and now starting to hammer out wedding details – and joy and mirthContinue reading “Happy Vernal Equinox!”
