Peppers & Me.

I just want to jot down a couple kind of interesting notes about my pepper plants.  I tried a couple different things this year, and I'm excited to not forget for next year. First: I overwintered about 5 pepper plants from last year in my classroom. Two of them died,...

Traffic Patterns.

I'm just curious to how city traffic engineers can sleep at night.  I'm serious; I don't even understand. Are there special, unknown streets specifically designated for traffic planners? Like the kinds of roads that are surely empty at any given hour, free from...

Blissed Out

Well, it was a rather epic birthday week with Justin. The whole week was great, really, but I don't have photos to back up the other instances of greatness. To quickly summarize, we were able to get out to Connecticut to see Eggie (for her birthday), Darian, and Aivar...

Las plantas de la casa

Pensé que hoy hablaría de mis plantas; después de todo, los son como mis hijos, y merecen cierta atención por todos los placeres que me dan. Primero, en el apartamento nuevo, planté tres “woolypockets” con los verdes: en el primer tenemos lechuga, cilantro, comino...

Monday, Funday.

Well, 2017 is shaping up to be reasonably silly! I went to yoga this morning feeling a lot like Gregor Samsa and smelling a bit worse. Apparently, I publicly announced that I would essentially cheat the system for Eve on the 30-day challenge (starts Jan 9). I wasn't...

Aivar Turned One!

  Yesterday was baby Aivar's birthday; he turned one.  It's really kind of hard to believe he's already one. And in another way, it's hard to believe he is only one. The last time we saw him (Thanksgiving), he was doing his "stanky leg" crawl, and now he's...
