I was trying to relax enough to sleep last night. Headphones were on and Loreena McKennitt was playing. I generally find her too mellow and low energy for daytime listening, but it's nice music for winding down. I came back to awareness for a moment and glanced around the room and noted how much light … Continue reading Late Night Winter Wonderland
Panther Creek State Park, Part 3
I went back to Panther Creek State Park the very next day after my first visit, when I found out the weather was supposed to be good, including sunshine. I'd been intending to stick to the lowland trails after the previous day's experience, and parked my car in one of the lower lots so I … Continue reading Panther Creek State Park, Part 3
Panther Creek State Park, Part 2
My first day, proceeding along the overlook loop trail and having passed to the other side of the hills and partially descended, I looked up and spotted a cave. 38 year old me thought 'that's cool,' took note of the terrain and thought it would be a good idea to keep walking. 8 year old … Continue reading Panther Creek State Park, Part 2
Panther Creek State Park, Part 1
I'd been planning to post about Panther Creek State Park after returning home from my dad's, but so much happened that pushed it to the back burner. The first day I went it was mostly a grey, cloudy day, but the park's scenery was gorgeous so I didn't mind the lack of sun too much. … Continue reading Panther Creek State Park, Part 1
Fall Foliage, Etc.
I was complaining to A and H about not wanting to muck my shoulder up further and delay healing, but going stir crazy being stuck in the house so much, and H suggested I try a sling from a drug store. That was an excellent suggestion, so yesterday afternoon I walked to a nearby CVS … Continue reading Fall Foliage, Etc.
I don't get super excited about any holidays, not even Halloween, but I have been enjoying editing some of my photos into black and white to create scenes that hopefully have a creepy atmosphere suggestive of older horror movies.
Transitioning To Fall
Took a walk yesterday morning and the light was lovely. The temperatures this week have felt like summer but the foliage knows what time of year we're heading into.
Getting a bit behind here. I've been dealing with heightened anxiety and depression this week, as well as having had the Excel training course Monday night through Thursday night, and it left me with less energy for recording events here. Wednesday morning I decided I wanted to go for a walk somewhere other than my … Continue reading Potter’s Bridge
First Day of Fall
I woke up this morning anxious about whether or not a spot would open up for the Excel training course. I did not want to have to wait until November or later to be able to proceed with contacting temp / recruitment agencies. Still, there was nothing I could do but wait to hear from … Continue reading First Day of Fall
Garfield Park Conservatory Grounds
I hadn't got around to posting about the latter part of Saturday after spending the afternoon with H going through Pogue's Run. I wanted to stay out as long as possible, but after we got a late lunch, H had to cut the afternoon short due to having the boots he'd worn rubbing his calves … Continue reading Garfield Park Conservatory Grounds
