Spring is being quite the tease this year. We've had some gorgeous days of warm and sunny weather, inevitably followed by a return to cooler temperatures. At least twice now, the snow in our yard has nearly melted and then we've immediately gotten new snow to cover up the cold, wet ground. It's not that this is … Continue reading A Handful of Goals for Spring
I have a tendency to stay home on weekends. I usually try to spend at least one entire weekend day at home. Sometimes I make it from Friday afternoon to Monday morning without going anywhere. This seems weird to some people and I do miss out on some weekend activities and shenanigans with my friends. But … Continue reading Weekend Hermit
One idea that's caught my interest lately is streaking. Not the go-run-around-naked-in-public kind of streaking (it's too cold for that!), but the kind of streak that gets everyone excited when, say, a sports team wins several games in a row. The first streaking that caught my attention (again, it's below zero around here, so there … Continue reading Hey Everybody, We’re Going Streaking!

Because even though I work in natural resources and write about the outdoors, I don’t get out nearly enough. Let's just say last week was a bad week. Monday: Since I was going to be writing about … Continue reading Project Get Out: Week 6
I am an idiot. Earlier this week, I was attempting to back up all of our files so that I could reformat our creaky, old computer so that it might last a bit longer. Instead, I managed to delete pretty much all of our files.I accidentally reformated our computer's secondary drive, which contained:all of our photos (probably … Continue reading Unintentional Simple Living
Exciting news: I've recently started out a side gig writing at Greatist.com, which is a super-fun health and fitness website. It's an awesome website, full of awesome writers (te he!), and I hope you'll check it out. Just open the site in new tab, read this post (Don't worry, it's pretty short!), and then go there and see what's … Continue reading Blow Up Your TV
