Weekly Rambling (July 24, 2015)

This entry is part 1 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

The title of this post is a wee bit hopeful on my part, but I’ve come to a couple of realizations about this site/blog recently. The first is that I need to write more.  I have a pile of deeper thought posts in a huge binder clip somewhere, and they Continue Reading →

Weekly Rambling (August 1, 2015)

This entry is part 2 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Day late, this week.  However, still the same week.  That counts, right? I even have a relatively good reason.  I was having a particularly iffy body day yesterday, and sort of fell into a book.  Which was followed by sort of autonomically picking up the second and continuing the tale… Continue Reading →

Periodic Ramblings (August 17, 2015)

This entry is part 3 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

This post was delayed because sometimes I am easily distracted. The idea for a new tea was sparked (on Twitter, of all places) and I had to create the tea.  In the process of creating that tea, I decided I needed to write about how we approach making a tea…. Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (08/27/15)

This entry is part 4 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: I’ve been rediscovering things lately.  Some good, some irritating (but still good.) A few days ago body forced a break on me, and I was aggravated by it.  Wanting to do something useful while watching things on Netflix, I decided to pick up my needles Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (09/04/15)

This entry is part 5 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Life still seems to be moving fairly fast.  Not sure if this is because of the new schedule, or because of the relative productivity we’ve managed, or something else I’ve not thought of. The days have been sailing by. The most notable event of this past Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (10/03/15)

This entry is part 6 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Ever had a chunk of time where you feel incredibly busy and yet also like you are not accomplishing enough of anything?  While more time flits by then you are aware of? That’s been the past bit for me.  To a lesser extent I think Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (10/31/15)

This entry is part 7 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: The plan was for weekly updates, it really was. Then again, it has been a fairly busy and complicated month. Mister Tea volunteered to work the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.  I’m not sure how well known this particular Albuquerque event is, but I know that Continue Reading →

Chronic Pain, Hot Beverage Alchemy, and a little Parkour….

This entry is part 8 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Occasionally our work of tea has unforeseen, hilarious, and somewhat dangerous side effects. The morning we finished the R&D part of creating our goat’s milk cocoas was one of these times. We had finished the testing, with near a quart of tests consumed during the process, and were tossing about Continue Reading →

Time-Lost Update Post

This entry is part 9 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: So…  been a while.  Completely unintended. 2016 has so far been the year of learning that I need to be a little more careful in how much I do and how often and when.  The body I live in is pretty beaten up, and it Continue Reading →

04/21/16 Updates (Cinnamon Torment, Lego Addiction, and Time to Breathe)

This entry is part 10 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Still more than a week later, but closer than the last time.  I may be finding a rhythm for things again. Our biggest excitement is a return to normalcy.  Or, what counts for us as normal.  In a very specific area. Our chickens are finally Continue Reading →
