Olio #1: Winnie the Pooh Characters: My Take

Wherein I give my take on the many characters of 'Winnie the Pooh'. The ones that "everyone" likes I don't necessarily like. And the "universally" reviled characters, well, sometimes I understand where they are coming from.

Things to Love #1: Mid-Century Modern Design

In residential architecture, I love Craftsman, Tudor, Gothic, and more. Including Mid-Century Modern. This love of Mod transfers to things other than architecture, as well. I love the style in furniture, shapes and patterns, advertisements, movie intros, and, yes, houses.

Introducing Bristol Box!

These days, subscription box services are quite the rage, but they are all very focused on one interest, such as food or superheroes, and require a costly subscription, often with an obligation for a certain number of months. You're also stuck with whatever comes in the box, regardless of quality, your taste, or whether it fits into your life. Bristol Box is different.

Welcome to My New Site!

After my legal name change last year and then almost a year of impatience waiting for a certain web hosting company to have a serviceable product, I've decided to stop waiting. So here we are.

Learning to Live With Less

I seem to accumulate "stuff". All kinds of stuff. Possessions, paper products (yay Costco), books, food in the pantry, files on my computer, pounds on my waistline. Not because I'm a compulsive hoarder. I just like to be prepared. "Just in case."

Recent Census History: Commercials

We are still four years off from our next U.S. Census taking, but our census fascinates me at all times in between. Historical censuses are pivotal pieces in my family history research, and they are just interesting in their own right, for taking a snapshot in time.

Migraines.

I'm sitting here, third day of brain fog and body lethargy following a full day of "oh my god kill me now" pain on Friday. The crying. The tiredness. The everything.

How I Prepare for Change

I don't deal well with change much of the time. Not the big stuff, anyway. It helps quite a bit if I have some transition time to get used to the idea, though. If I'm ready for the change when it happens, it goes really smoothly. If it's abrupt, if I didn't see it coming, or if I can't prepare for it, there is a difficult adjustment period afterward.

Being Female, But Outside the Inner Circle

"Moms' night out." "Girls' night out." "Nail wraps." "A day at the spa." "Out with my besties." "Mani pedi!" All of these phrases and activities leave me cold.

What the Heck Is the Southern Ocean?

When I was in school, I learned that there were four oceans: the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Indian, and the Arctic. Now some geography sources talk about the Southern Ocean. Um, what?

Tiny Houses

I'm digging this Tiny House movement. Giving up 3/4 of your stuff and living in a smaller space sounds really appealing to me. Less room to clean, fewer belongings to take care of, fewer places to lose things.
