SoCS: Breathing Seasons

Breathe in Breathe out Lungs cauterized by winter’s frozen retort Stark trees bare their darkened soul Breathe in Breathe out Lungs refreshed by spring’s unprocessed reply White birch bare their newborn green Breathe in Breathe out Lungs parched by summer’s brazen song Limbs bare their sultry, layered bark Breathe in Breathe out Lungs clear and crisp by autumn’s chameleon chatter Leaves bare their red and golden hues Breathe in Breathe out Lungs expand and collapse by pages on the calendarRead more

It’s Okay!

At first, I LOL’d over Monday’s “Shame Your Pet” cat calendar page. I have a cat that yowls at 3:00 am out of pride for the smelly Baby Ruth he leaves uncovered in the litter box. Yeah, cats are weird. Then again… There are times when I think we’d all like to yowl about something at 3:00 am or any time of the day over the things that bring us joy. The first bike ride of the season. The coolestRead more

Yeah, why would you?

Gibbs and Ziva don’t have to ask me that question. They have a catnip banana. No need to chew on a piece of fruit.

A co-worker’s Sarah Boynton desk calendar said it all last week. There are days when I am kindred with the beaver, except I’m usually holding more than two branches. Sometimes I juggle the branches.

But I’m a public employee who aspires to do her best every day, no matter how many projects they throw at me, and get the job done. IRead more

Rule the Day!

NUMBERS are everywhere: this week, share a photo that puts them front and center. Monday through Friday, 6:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., numbers surround me. They are on the papers covering a workstation. They are on the Excel spreadsheets lingering within a computer. They are on a clock within a stone’s throw; on the keypad of a multi-function device. And they are right in front of me. On the platform that holds a keyboard, a mouse, and various other sundries,Read more

Shame on You!

Shame Your Pet desk calendar, 2015. It’s absolutely hilarious and I’ve been having fun adding my own brand of dry and stupid humor to the shameful antics of dogs and cats. About 11 years ago, Natasha and I worked in the same office. I would buy a cat desk calendar every year and when the inspiration struck, I would write something silly about the unknowing cat of the day. When Natasha left to work elsewhere, I continued to send her aRead more
