Winding Down

Hello All! So this week has been rough. Just lots of things due and running around trying to make everyone happy. And my sister’s dog tried to eat my cat and while she escaped relatively unscathed she has been limping since so there might be a vet trip in my future. We all know how much…

Being in the Inbetween

Hello all! So, Halloween is over. We are now in that terrible in between where it’s not Christmas but Thanks Giving doesn’t feel quite real. Kids are out of school for essentially half the month thanks to the myriad of government holidays, teacher work days, and then, of course, the Big T. I don’t really get…

Same as Last Week – But Now There’s Cake!

Hello all! I hope everything on your end is okay. Things over here are alright — we’ve hit week nine and I’m losing motivation but that’s alright. Maybe Halloween will get me back into things (I doubt it but a girl can dream). I’m still reading Her Body and Other Parties by the incredibly talented Carmen…

Her Bodies and Other Parties

Hello all! I hope everyone is doing well! I’m cutting it a little close this week, but that’s mostly because I have no idea what to write about because I didn’t get a chance to finish reading anything this week. I had a memoir due that kind of kicked my tail because I couldn’t figure…

“…Yet There is Method In’t”

Hey guys! I hope your week is going well! Mine is going as well as it usually is so I count that as a win. This week we’re talkin’ Danish Princes and failed doughnuts, so it’s kind of a win loose sort-a deal in terms of the post. But hey — at least I attempted both,…

The Name of the Wind

Hello all! The universe has lost, and I stand victorious and exhausted and I really just want to nap. I’m glad this past week is over and that we all have a long weekend to look forward to — I’m going to my best friend sister’s wedding and I’m excited and nervous at the same…

Carrie Fisher was a solid human being

Hello all! So, I’m convinced the next three weeks are a direct result of the universe trying to kill me. All that purplish, bluish-white cosmic goo that makes up our existence just kinda looked in my corner of things and went, “Aw, that’s cute, she’s trying. But nope,” and is trying to smoosh me with…

Goodbye to All That

Hello all! I hope you’ve had a productive week and that this un-fall weather isn’t getting to you like it’s getting to me. I’m just very ready to start wearing sweaters all the time and to put my shorts away for a couple of months. I’ve been ready for fall since July, so it’s overdue…

Long Time No Post!

Hello all! Well goodness- it has been a moment since I got on here and posted anything! I hope anyone and everyone who stops by here on occasion is doing well and that you had a wonderful summer. Hopefully, you’re all safe and sound considering the state of both our political and literal climate. This summer…

Dingle House

Hello all! So I just found out that “Slade is a surname of Saxon origin, meaning, variously at different times in different dialects, “a valley, dell, or dingle; an open space between banks or woods; a forest glade; a strip of greensward or of boggy land; the side or slope of a hill”” which is…

Another Week of Review

Hello all! So no fun talk about books or baking this week- I’m doing another review of a, frankly, terrible book that I read for class and so that is going to be my post for this week. Honestly, this book was a piece of work and I’m glad that I don’t have to read…

My Family Discord, My Cat, and My Reviews

Hello all! So while I had a blog post prepared for this week I realized that this week we only had to post our reviews so I’m saving the post. Mostly because as we get closer to finals I might not have time for anything other than papers and tears so I can then just…
