Hump Day

Halfway through the week! Or for my SO, today was his Friday. It was a busy day. My MIL canned some cubed roast. I try to stay out of her way, but I like to learn a bit about the canning process as well. It’s amazing. She has the butcher cube the shoulder roast (beef)Continue reading “Hump Day”

Just Another Manic Monday, Wait, It’s Tuesday

Nearly lost track of the days. Gosh, does time work funny when you’re in the Manic phase. I was greeted with a pleasant surprise today! Someone sent me something from my Amazon Wish List! ❤️ Thank you, person! These Tarot Card stickers are so cute. It makes me want to draw some of my ownContinue reading “Just Another Manic Monday, Wait, It’s Tuesday”

Whatever Happened to Lisa Frank?

(The above image was taken from this article.) I haven’t had a really great mindset the past few days. I’m definitely drifting into a Manic Episode. I don’t have a lot of focus, my thoughts are racing and my attention span drifts to a million different things. Normally this is when I’m really productive andContinue reading “Whatever Happened to Lisa Frank?”

Spoon Theory

Spoon Theory was originally an explanation written by Christine Miserandino. It’s an amazing way to express something that’s not entirely concrete. The concept as a whole works amazingly for people with invisible illnesses. Mental health disorders being a big one. “But you don’t look sick.” Or my favorite, “You’ve done X, Y, & Z before,Continue reading “Spoon Theory”

Mental Overload

Yesterday I meant to do another post, but the day just did not go the way I planned it. I had my first session with my new therapist in the morning. The health care provider that I currently use has interns who start in July and their time at the facility ends in June. SoContinue reading “Mental Overload”

Oh No, Oh No, Oh No No No

I have no idea what I did wrong with the automatic pre-planned posts. I thought I was impressive having a few posts written ahead. Only to realize that some of them posted on the same day and when I tried to “fix” it, I thing I got the order wrong. I think I’ve finally gottenContinue reading “Oh No, Oh No, Oh No No No”

Tea for Two

Not the 1950 Musical Film starring Doris Day, which I have now decided is a necessary movie that will be gracing my television sometime today. I don’t know why, but there’s something magical about watching some of the older films. I recently got on the kick after watching “Charade” (1963) with Audrey Hepburn and CaryContinue reading “Tea for Two”

Uechi Ryu: Forming Habits

I feel like this week has a theme. I know I talked about practicing in general concerning the ukulele and art. Now I’d like to delve further into the martial arts I currently study. I suppose to start out, I should address what it’s called and where it originates from. Kanbun Uechi is an OkinawanContinue reading “Uechi Ryu: Forming Habits”

Drawing on Repeat

Yesterday’s post was written frantically. I did it as I do most things, by the seat of my pants, just pulling from the deepest recesses of my insane mind. I did some writing in the past for my LARP (live action roleplaying). Most notably, I wrote the background for the Great Library setting. It’s myContinue reading “Drawing on Repeat”

Crying Over Spilt Milk?

In the past I used to think that phrase was silly. Who would cry over something as small as spilt milk? But as I got older and my mental health deteriorated, it honestly makes much more sense. There’s that one small thing that causes the breaking point when you have no more patience. I startedContinue reading “Crying Over Spilt Milk?”
