My house is old. It was built in 1957, and has had precious little updating since. With an old house you expect things to go out and need repairs/replacement. It's had lots of plumbing issues over the years (although the worst turned out not to be anything specifically to do with the pipes in the … Continue reading When Door Knobs Attack
I'm still trying to settle in to my new job. I started in late October, and it really took awhile to even begin to feel like I was "one of them." I'm still paranoid about everything I do. There have been some shakeups in the upper echelons already just since I've been there (one right … Continue reading Belonging
Time is not my friend. Every day that passes makes me that much more frustrated that I spend my life using all my energy and time in the pursuit of other people’s dreams. Time I can’t get back. I can only spend it once. Like that Daffy Duck cartoon where he keeps trying to … Continue reading Time
Since I don't have tv cable, I've recently discovered Lucy Worsley on YouTube and am thoroughly addicted to her BBC programs. She is the "Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, and by night a writer of history books." I think the first one I watched was "Jane Austen Behind Closed Doors." https://youtu.be/B7GtgYd5VlQ I can never … Continue reading Fun with History with Lucy Worsley

Finally! Chapter 6 is up now on Wattpad. Thanks everyone for your patience. It's been a rough month for me, but I feel like I'm starting to pull it together again.
I see I've missed mentioning when I've posted the last few chapters of this story. It's up to Chapter 5 now on Wattpad, if you want to get caught up. This is a romance, if you're not familiar with it. Also, it is a work-in-progress, so the final product may be slightly different from what … Continue reading A World Away – Chapter 5 on Wattpad
I’ve been working my way through the original series of Star Trek, which I have always adored. My family watched it together when I was a child. It was our Friday night ritual. We’d have cheese pizza (being good Catholics, so no meat on Fridays in the late 1960s) and watch first a series called … Continue reading Star Trek and Nostalgia
