    Giving Out


    Today I sat curled into the couch as a break from crawling all over the floor cleaning out my art supplies.  I sat for maybe fifteen minutes just reading and staring out of the little slice of window that the cardboard wasn’t covering.  I put out my left leg to …

    Perfect Minnow Set up


    Why did i not think of this before? The box my cast net came in was so flimsy and has been broken for a year. Today, I took the caste net out to wash it after catching some fish in the stinky sound. So, I figured I’d look around the …

    After a bike ride to the fabric store and a morning at the spinning wheel, Jessie put together a rad canvas board bag. Still needs a draw string but it’s awesome. Maybe she’ll be selling them soon…

    Playing Catch Up


    I have been so behind.  With school coming to a close, finals, and then graduation my life has been a whirlwind of chaos.  I’m still trying to push through the settling dust, so we shall see.  If you ever need a pick-me-up, count your blessings.  Count the gifts.  Name them, …

    Healthy Grub


    The spinach and kale give you some extra power, plus you can check off one serving of greens for the day. And, it doesn’t change the sweet fruity flavor (no nasty health drink here). Eating healthy should be enjoyable. Eat what the earth gives you.  Avoid processed food as much …

    Daily 300 (2): This might be too big to write yet


    Courtesy of herculie on Flickr

    Today I attended the last class of my undergraduate career.

    People cried. It was great. I brought snickerdoodles. Our professor sent us out the door with hugs and a list of books and a poem hand-picked for each student.

    “What do we do now?” This …

    Sometimes, we get blindsided by the reality of expectations.  Sometimes open communications just mean relaying information and not making it your own.  It is in these moments that I realize that that I have a misguided sense of what truly is.  What does it mean to be a part of …

    April Funk


    For some reason I keep forgetting that I have this blog thing to tend to.  It’s been a weird time in my life where I don’t feel like sitting down at a computer and typing out my heart, my thoughts, or even typing to type.  I’m in a funk.  Surprise, …

    3 Gifts Round

    272. The roundest gift I found today was honestly the sink.  You know when you get tired and need to maneuver around something?  It’s best when the sinks are rounded and not sharp.  Hurts less.

    273. Pillows.  They’re delightful.

    274. New tires.  (They were for Paige.)

    Birthday, Part Two


    There was a hunch that I always shoved to the back of my brain because I knew the reality.  My parents weren’t financially able (or had enough time to devote) to come up for my Senior Show at school, but I thought it would be a nice gesture.  I had …

    Twenty Two


     This will be quick.

    Twenty two is how old I am today.  Which is funny, because at 22 I am sitting posh in Eastern Daylight Time at almost one in the morning while I was actually born at eight at night for Hawai’i Standard Time.  So maybe it’s not quite …
