Tuesday Twenty: September’s Best Weird Holidays

This was intended to be a Tuesday Ten, a list of ten items on any topic I choose. But I couldn’t narrow my list to only ten. Seeing as how the alliteration still works, I’m now calling it my Tuesday Twenty. Here are some of the best official offbeat holidays of this month. These areContinue reading “Tuesday Twenty: September’s Best Weird Holidays”

Daydreaming?

I recently got a new Fitbit and have been exploring all the different features. One thing I only just started looking into is its sleep-tracking abilities. Supposedly, if I wear it to bed it can tell when I’m asleep from my heart rate and the lack of steps taken, and can even pinpoint when I’mContinue reading “Daydreaming?”

Dreaming Again

Yesterday I wrote about a dream I had Wednesday night, about living on Guernsey Island and being separated from my son just as the Nazis invaded. I think it was really about my fears for my son during the pandemic, because he was not yet eligible to be vaccinated. The very next day, he learnedContinue reading “Dreaming Again”

But I have a dozen or so of them out andContinue reading “Revisiting an Old Journal, 22 Years Later”

Friday Five: Dreams

Dreams are hallucinations that occur while we sleep. Our brainsContinue reading “Friday Five: Dreams”

Another Odd Dream

Another odd dream last night, the second memorable one this week, though I woke up before more than a fragment had played out. I was at home, in the kitchen, and could hear my husband and son watching television in the family room. Suddenly, over the sound of the television, I thought I heard aContinue reading “Another Odd Dream”
