The Borrowers

The 2010 Studio Ghibli movie, “The Secret World of Arrietty”, is probably the most modern version of the Borrowers that I know. My step daughter was home sick from school and this was the movie she ended up picking to start her sick day. I sat with her a bit and watched because I reallyContinue reading “The Borrowers”

The Art of Simple Living: Part One

Okay, the first part of the book is really interesting. It makes sense because Zen is one of the building blocks to the foundation of DBT skills. The book is nice since it really only has about a page of text about each of these points. It’s not really something I’ll expand upon to muchContinue reading “The Art of Simple Living: Part One”

Library Haul

One of the books I opened from the library had a green “4” UNO card tucked in it. Is this a sign? Not sure why the Naga section of the book was bookmarked. I’ll have to ponder and think up some strange story behind all of that. I had to return some of my booksContinue reading “Library Haul”

The Neverending Story

This was one of my favorite movies as a child. It was made the year I was born! So I suppose it’s like my theme movie. Imagination! Dreams! The Nothing… Oh man, the Nothing is a real struggle for me. And BOOKS! Wow, I love books. When my ex-husband and I separated, I ended upContinue reading “The Neverending Story”

Library Books and Snacking for Dinner

Since I did not get to post the picture of my Bonus Daughter’s lunch yesterday, here you go. It’s a mystery to me how she likes to eat the same thing all the time. Then again, she will eat Taco Bell and always get the same thing: cheesey rice and bean burrito and cinnamon twistsContinue reading “Library Books and Snacking for Dinner”

Secure, Contain, Protect

My SO has dragged me along for listening to SCP’s. I really do love them and it reminds me a lot of stories that I’ve made up in my mind. It’s a testament that the internet can be amazing at collaborating to make something together. It’s really great because the SCP universe has multi-universes. SoContinue reading “Secure, Contain, Protect”

Self Image

Today’s opposite action was going to get my meds and then… not being able to get my meds. Well, I got my Diabetic Test Strips, but my Psych meds weren’t available. So I had to ask my Psychiatrist for samples. I’m not sure if it’s normal, but my Psychiatrist is a very strange guy. TheContinue reading “Self Image”

Last Days of Summer

I don’t know why, but the idea of going to the library today had me so excited I had trouble sleeping. The library is somewhere we can go just about any day, but it still just made me very happy to know we were going. I had to use some opposite action to get upContinue reading “Last Days of Summer”

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”
