Such a Slender Thread

Oof, I’ve been spread particularly thin lately. Everything has been last minute with not enough time and too much stress. But I’m powering through. We’re about to leave on a much needed road trip. Naturally one of the cats just puked on a couch and bonus, I got my danged period. And I never did [...]

A Slice of Life

Oh what a difference a week can make. Last week was long and hot and the bad weather melted my brain. During the day I enjoyed life at Clockwork HQ, with the magically chilly air. But as soon as I headed home my energy and motivation drained away as I slogged my way up to [...]
