Still in a space where I'm having lots of thinky-thoughts, but can't quite articulate them in writing. I can, however, provide a list of some things of note, items of trivia and suchlike to give a snapshot into my world of late.

  • Spent 6 days at parents' Lake Texoma farm for Christmas. After the craziness of work travel for the two weeks prior, the slow pace was a balm. I didn't even twitch that much without cell phone signal, though the occasional check-in on the interwebz was a challenge given the dial-up situation. All in all, though, it was a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

  • It's very odd being the lone owl in a family of larks, though as she's gotten older, my mother is beginning to shift over to my schedule a bit more. Then again, it's nice being able to stay up late and read while the whole house is quiet and dark.

  • My sister's new dog, Bug is a so-ugly-she's-cute ball of energy. Poor Scamp (the 11 year old blue heeler) handles her very well. Puppies are good therapy.

  • Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce—so delicious, Mom instantly demanded it to become a new family tradition forevah-evah.

  • Love life's little moments of hilarity:
    Mom: *pointing at my nose stud* Looks like you're gonna lose it.
    Me: Nah, there's a bend in the wire *taking it out to show her* so it stays put.
    Mom: Oh, so when it pops like that does it mean you're done like a turkey?
    Me: *facepalm*

  • Visited the Chickasaw Cultural Center with the family. Such lovely space, and really beautiful/informative exhibits. Sadness, though, that the kitchen ran out of Indian Fry-Bread tacos. *le sigh*

  • While I love getting spontaneous invites to dinner/drinks/etc., I really suck at reciprocating such invites. Maybe because it doesn't occur to me that anyone would want to join me last-minute? I don't know. But I am crap at it, and I'm sorry.

  • I continue to be amazed at my good fortune for the bounty of People of Quality in my world. I am constantly awed by you all, and the things you teach me. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better version of myself every day.

  • Still trying to figure out how best to get my groove back. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

  • Not much for New Year's Resolutions—they are largely a beat-down—but I think if I just plan to be a more authentic version of myself, I can live up to that.

    I feel like there's more to say, but I'll be damned if I can figure out what... so... yeah.

    Cheers!
