Week in Pictures

This week has definitely been about food, full stop. At my husband’s natural grocer employer, some of the food that they can’t sell anymore on the shelves (due to expiration dates, aesthetics, and what-not) comes up for grabs for employees to take home. (Most of the food actually goes to gleaners and the food bank, but the “blue slip” that…

Peri-WTF?! (or, having the courage to be free)

So I’m slowly but surely coming to the concept that I’m actually in perimenopause and have been for a number of years. I mean, hell, minus the hot flashes everything else seems to match pretty perfectly, from my fucked up ovaries to my mood swings to my space-out moments. Fact is, in just over two months I’ll be 44. When…

Lots on my mind. Exhaling a LOT this week! A basic list for men – ALL men – to read…no matter how feminist they consider themselves to be. Amen. A huge thing going on that isn’t getting an ounce of coverage in our regular news feeds I found buried in The Guardian the other day? It was determined that THREE-QUARTERS…

Autumn in Oregon never ceases to amaze me, even in our garden, from the heuchera to the vine leaf maple to the snowberry tree going from blossom to berry, love it… Holy crap it’s Friday and Season 2 of Stranger Things is on so I gotta make this quick as it’s marathon time! I love this: Boobs are not a…

This is our mural downstairs in a little nook area outside of the bedroom that would have been for our little one. Being the basement and being beach bums ourselves, the ocean concept was an easy one, so I got some inspirations from some cartoon pictures and went to town with a black sharpie, then coloring those in with some…

Alrighty folks it’s in the 60s and raining here, like Mother Earth looked at the calendar and went “okay people you wanted fall, here you go!” And with that, the focus slowly turns indoors and thinking about the shorter days and longer nights that are creeping in slowly but surely. Not sure about you but I cannot WAIT to get…

Alright, don’t say you weren’t warned: it’s time to vent as some serious shit going on that people need to know about if they don’t already…and hey, it’s been one helluva week in my world and the world at large…so here goes. #45 complains about pulling down statues of racist pigs, yet wants to reduce and/or eliminate many of our…

OK folks, so tomorrow is Monday the 21st and know what that means? It means I will no longer see half of the nightly newscast being spent on where to get eclipse glasses, how many spent 15 hours in traffic to get to the Armpit of Oregon to watch what they can see right here in town. Sorry y’all but…

My girl looking up at me as she lays at the end of our bed on the floor.  Whenever I’m feeling crappy she does this, it’s so sweet. This week has been gorgeous weather – high 70’s, low 80s, perfect for the garden. I personally prefer low 70’s but as long as the house stays cool I’m happy. This year…

More color in the garden – particularly stoked about the lupine (top right) going nuts as the last two years the aphids were manhandling this plant so bad (this spring I neem-oiled the hell out of them every other day well before they even budded, that and the milder spring may have helped). The pink poppies? Definitely getting divided at…
