A Wasted Day

If you want to skip this post I won’t be mad at you. I’m feeling a little whiney about what I did (or didn’t do) yesterday, and writing about stuff helps me figure things out so this is more of a journal entry than a blog post that offers any useful content to society.  Sometimes…

Spontaneity

I love being spontaneous!!!  As long as I know about it ahead of time. Mr. Won’t Run has a very fluid work schedule that can open up (or close up) very suddenly.  When he gets some unexpected free time we can now spend it together since I’m not withering away in a cubicle which is…

Life Lately – Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

  (image via IG: @thatpnwlife) “Not all those who wander are lost” We’ve all heard that line before (which is apparently from the poem All That is Gold Does Not Glitter written by J. R. R. Tolkien for The Lord of the Rings), but it was running through my head a while ago and it…

The Best Day

Today was by far the best day I’ve had in a very long time. Now that I’m not working (separate post coming soon about that), the day started slowly.  Mr. Won’t Run slept later than normal and we weren’t up until about 7:20.  I thought about hopping back into the cozy, warm bed after he…

Living the Co-op Life

Finding a co-op is kind of like dating.  You meet, get to know each other, fall in love, and make a commitment.  It’s the classic love story. I’m kidding, but not totally.  I met Our Table thanks to that food blogger conference a few months ago, I returned once a week or so to get…

FALLing for Veggies

It’s finally Fall!  Temperatures are dropping, leaves are changing, gourds are ripening, and I couldn’t love it more!! Part of the CSA fun is learning what’s in season in the area.  Sure, I can go to the grocery store and buy oranges every day of the year, but if you stop to think about it,…
