I won a Goodreads giveaway for Connie Willis’ new novel, “Crosstalk”. Can’t wait to dig in! Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: Zen yowl at me, “Time for bed!”
I love it when my library requests come in on a Friday, especially this Friday with the threat of power outages looming. No power necessary for these babies! So far, I only got stuck in a little bit of storm, walking home from my bus … Continue reading Day 288 of Project 365: Storm weekend reading list.
I worked the late shift tonight, so I drove FunkyPlaid’s swank car to and fro, which cut my commute time by two-thirds plus I got to belt out ’80s tunes. Not bad at all. I’m savoring a bedtime cuppa while perusing a few different ebooks … Continue reading Day 286 of Project 365: Bedtime cuppa.
I suppose it was due to happen: I had a low-health day today, and spent part of it resting and reading Manuel Gonzales’ “The Regional Office Is Under Attack!” I picked it up at the library because Kelly Link blurbed it, and her stories are … Continue reading Day 261 of Project 365: Currently reading.

Howdy, strangers! I forgot (again) how quickly these pile up when I run out of energy before I can post them each day. I will have to figure out another schedule. But here are some glimpses of the past week or so, plus a throwback photo … Continue reading Days 176-184 of Project 365: June and on and on.
We visited my new workplace today and I took a shelfie featuring one of my favorite authors. Writing from: the living room. Listening to: the first season of “The I.T. Crowd”. Richmond! ❤️
Books, books, books. Sometimes I get so excited about my currently-reading shelf that I have to share it! Pictured: Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter A Modern Way to Eat: Over 200 Satisfying, Everyday Vegetarian Recipes by Anna Jones Paper: Paging Through History … Continue reading Day 138 of Project 365: On my shelf.
After running errands downtown, FunkyPlaid and I went to Powell’s City of Books simply because we could. Now that we live only a short drive away, it will be difficult not to end up there. Jorge Luis Borges’ quotation comes to mind: “I have always … Continue reading Day 103 of Project 365: City of Books.
