Watching The Wire for the first time, on season 5, episode 8, and oh good lord why am I watching this show? Like, the one good bad guy dies and just come on.


I rank this with the Game of Thrones Red Wedding.

Tilly is convinced there is a rat in the compost pile. Can’t say I disagree with her, but we found none today.

“Name this band. Pearl Jam. I knew you wouldn’t get it.”

“I wasn’t, actually.”

The song was Yellow Ledbetter. 😆

Related, top of Peak Point. I now know that I need to work on climbing a sustained 20% grade with sections of 30% grade faster.

I took this picture a few miles north of Maverick’s today, and I don’t know what water phenomena I’m looking at with the ghosting wave.

Do you know water? Can you tell me what I saw?

One of those mornings, eh?

OH “Nobody expects the American Insurrection.”

OH: “There is always another level of bad, often involving shit.”

I adore Good Drinks by Julia Bainbridge, fantastic recipes for non-alcoholic drinks.🍹📚

The Great Conjunction from the hills. Great viewing for about 20 minutes, until the clouds rolled in.

Taking a break.

Missing this place desperately. 🇦🇶

Andy captured the neighborhood strays and introduced them to his ducks. An exciting meeting!

And so it begins.

“You always like to drive!”

The comment was made in jest, and yet, somewhat derogatory, like a woman isn’t allowed to drive or be in control. 😒


Repeat after me, “We do not use items from the Go Bag until we have gone. We do not use items from the Go Bag until we have gone.”

Defeats the point of a Go Bag. Argh again.


After two weeks of a very poor, sugar and wheat heavy diet, finally made a healthier meal. Every streak starts with one in a row…

Today is National Cookie Day.

Like every day since March this year, tbh.

I’m going to celebrate by eating pie.

Looks like I picked the wrong month to give away all my alcohol.
