Day 10 of 365

Today’s adventure was to create a ZINE.

If you aren’t familiar with zines they are mini books hand made and stapled or folded together. That’s a super brief summary but you can click here if you want to know more. You won’t be shocked to see that it’s a cre...

Growing 'shrooms

The other day we talked about growing accidental mushrooms. As we speak there is fungus growing in my pantry, on purpose. Now I've got fungus growing in my basement and I'm equally as excited about that. 

I purchased a box of dirt and mushroom compost. T...

Let them eat Cheesecake

I had a couple of things planned for this day. One of them didn't happen yet so I'm saving it for another day when I know more. So far I've had great backups and on the eighth day my plan was to bake my first cheesecake.

It's only the 4th day and it feels like it went on forever. 

I had different plans for the 4th day. You'll find out tomorrow what they were.

Seriously!

Today I spent hours shopping for a dress. For those of you...

Today's adventure included ink and a very special pen.

Shortly before my son left to travel for the year he bought me a gift for my birthday, a blown glass pen. It came with love and he picked my favorite color for the handle. He didn’t know but I’ve always wanted one a...

Day 2 was a coffee experience

There are some things you just have to do to understand how they are different from what you’ve tried before. It’s pretty simple. Today my co-worker and friend took me for a cup of coffee. She’s been going on and on for months about how ama...

Day one seemed like a perfect opportunity to crack open a bottle of something I’ve never sipped and start my 365 day journey with a BANG! The problem is, that’s not the real me. I love to celebrate but I’m not turning 21. My life isn’t about losing my...
