Monday Musing: Overburdened, self-inflicted

This morning when I go to work, one of my tasks will be to complete my timesheet for the pay period that just ended. It’s going to show a lot of extra time. This past week was a seven-day work week, which included a ten-hour day in the middle of it. So, I’ve been a […]

Celestial Events and other things

Semi-random postings for this ecliptic day. * As you may or may not know, I write a monthly column for one of our local papers. This month’s column is on eclipses. Take a read! * That column is not exactly a “How to” guide for safe eclipse viewing. If you want that, go here! * […]

Mental Health Day

That’s what I’m on. I work a lot of weekends. Sometimes, the work is just for a few hours, such as when I lead a nature walk for my organization, or take a table full of displays and ‘stuff’ to some event and talk to people all day. Other times, it’s an all-day sort of […]

Monday Musing: Delayed Reaction Edition

Hidey-ho, folks, hope you’re all well. After enduring a week of cold, rain, and snow, the sun came out on Saturday afternoon, and it was positively balmy yesterday, mid-sixties and sunny. Daffodils are sprouting (though not quite flowering–yet), spring peepers are getting louder in the wetlands, swallows and kestrels are turning up on the telephone […]

Monday Musing: Blizzard Edition

Well, technically it’s not a blizzard, but the storm that began yesterday has dumped close to a foot of snow on us (I measured 13″, but there was already a some on the ground; I’m not sure what the “official” totals are). I got out in the middle of the afternoon yesterday and shoveled about […]

Monday Musing: TV Schedules

On Friday morning, I found myself listening to something curious on one of the local radio stations. Seemed the DJ from one of the five or six stations housed in one building (and, as far as I can tell, these are the only two actual on-air personalities on any of these stations; I think they […]

Monday Musing: And There It Is!

Good morning, all. Various bits and pieces of brain drivel from me: After pushing sixty degrees on Friday and Saturday, the temperature dropped, dropped, dropped. Drizzle on Saturday night turned into snow on Sunday morning, which hasn’t stopped yet. Plows are busy, and I will soon be busy as well, shoveling out the driveway (again). […]

Monday Musing

I was heading for another “confessional post.” Though it’s been partially drafted, it’s not ready and I don’t have the time (or stomach) to get it ready for this week. Instead, we get random bits of whatever. -Walking the dog in the morning, I’m still not used to the fact that it’s largely dark until […]

Monday Musing: Clunky Computer Edition

This is one of those mornings where my computer is wheezy and sluggish and unresponsive. It gets like this once in a while, where it takes forever to switch between tabs, and heaven forbid if I try to close a tab or a window or anything like that. It’s times like these when I make […]

Monday Musing

Another Monday morning that catches me rather bleary-eyed and unprepared. Second cup of coffee is on its way in and I’m not much better off than when I got up! -Despite having to work through almost all of my Saturday, attending a memorial service for a really good guy I knew through work, having to […]
