Tag Archives: Birthdays


I'm in the last 4 weeks of semester 2, and it's crazy busy, as expected. I can not wait for my break, I need the brain rest. This weekend, including today, will mostly be spent at the college. I'm not a fan of working in that cold-ass lab, but it's somewhat less distracting then working at home. The fact that I want to get out of there, makes me work much more quickly and efficiently.


Hopefully I'll be able to finish Persecuted: I Will Not Be Silent by Robin Parrish in the next day or 2. Thank goodness for book renewals. The morning bus reads have not been happening because I AM TIRED. It's been more of the morning bus naps. This 4-4:30 a.m. wake up time is bull. But I work best in the morning versus the night. Does anyone else, look at the clock and want to go to bed by 7 p.m? Is that old? Oh well, that's me, and I accept it.


My birthday is coming up in a few days and I all ask for is a good meal, great wine, and to be able to relax for part of the day. Do you expect big things for your birthday or do you keep it simple or not acknowledged it at all? I am usually in the not acknowledge it all camp, except this year.


I'm still enjoying copious amounts of cherries, without shame because the season is so short and I will not be able to have them again until next year. Is 3-4 lbs a week excessive?


Weekly Bee Count: 1 bumble bees, on the pavement; 0 honey bees

Till next time,



Good Wednesday morning/afternoon/evening everyone! The most important thing about today...

  • It's my sister's birthday! Happy Birthday sister! Enjoy your day! (I'll post pics of the cake later, since we're not doing the birthday cake thing until Friday.)
  • 12-12-12 is supposed to be a lucky day. I guess we'll see a year, more or less, from now if good things happened. Hopefully my sister and everyone else celebrating anything today will have many great things and many blessings coming their way.
  • Discovered a new radio programme, on BBC radio a couple of days ago. It's called Warhorse of Letters, about a gay horse couple, Copenhagen & Marengo along with their friends. Copenhagen and Marengo happen to be the war horses of Napoleon Bonaparte and Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington. They live their lives like humans, with subtle reminders to us, the listeners, that they are horses. This is the 2nd series, that is being broadcast on the BBC, so I have to find a way to hear series 1. It's so funny, if you like radio shows you have to give it a listen. I love radio shows, podcast, audio books. As long as I have that, I'll do okay without television. Any radio show lover's out there?

So today I'm getting in some writing, catching up on paperwork, appointments and doing birthday stuff, all on very little sleep. Wish me luck, my brain will need it. 😉
