What happens in Japan stays in Japan

The spirit of Halloween is upon us! 10.14.18 I’m sipping some tea this morning working through Brain Games Crime Scene Investigation puzzle book this morning. One of my coworkers who formally worked in the Air Force recommended it to me when I told her I enjoy Sudokus and word problems. She frequently shares with me…

Flower of the Day – 10.6.18

Good morning! Another energy boost from Cee’s photo of her dahlia! Before I head out to work today, I wanted to share rows of mums in the oriental market during the Vietnamese New Year season called Tet. (At least I think they’re mums! 😉 ) In just a few minutes from when this shot is…

Dance on the Balcony

09.19.18 Dream: It was dark outside, and solar stake lights lit up the sidewalks leading up to a white two story condo where there was a party.
