My birthday was nice and chill. Had the day off from work, then went to my friend M.’s place to have D&D just like old times; that day I’d made orange chicken for the crew, my friend K. brought over some chocolate & vanilla cupcakes decorated with butter-cream or non-dairy frosting that was marbled with purple & blue edible paint and plastic mermaid tails. It was great. I was so happy. I got my first Starbucks loyalty card, and my bff Tamie got me a gift card to our local book/toy/game store.
In the past month, a few of my friends came up to visit. First was my friends H., S. & R. and kiddos, M., and O. Sadly didn’t get to see S. & R., but everyone else I saw. It was a great time. M. went out tendering (fishing term) about a week ago, and O. left this morning for a week and a half, and will be back for his sister’s wedding in July! How exciting!!!
A few months ago, I went to my friend P.’s place for art night. Got the idea to look for writing prompts on Pinterest, and found TFR’s Writing Prompts. They worked out so well that I wrote, I swear, five installations of a fictional story starring myself and my bff. (You can find it here, if you’re interested in reading it.)
Anyhow, that’s all for now. I hope y’all are having an awesome day, and for those who celebrate it, Happy Father’s Day, and ALSO, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!!!
Until next time! ❤ ❤
As of the past couple of months, I took a job side-step and started working in the post office attached to our grocery store — and I LOVE it!!! It’s way less chaotic, and we don’t get many disgruntled customers; it’s so laid-back and while, yes, there’s some heavy lifting involved, it’s totally fine. Now, was it a pay raise? No, but that’s all right. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: as long as you’re getting a paycheck, you’re in a good place.
In the next couple weeks, I’ll be [hopefully] taking a vacation in order to house/dog-sit for my friend who’s going on a cruise. Why am I taking a vacation from work? Well, one, because I need a freaking vacation; two, so that I can devote all my time to the doggo and not worry about having to go to/from work every day. I just hope I can get it approved, although, I’m pretty sure I’m already pre-approved from my manager in the post office.
During that time dog/house-sitting, I want to get back into a hobby I let fall to the wayside years ago; I want to get back into burning mix CDs for my friends. I can’t wait to see if I can make that a thing. That just requires a trip to Walmart — who’s currently in the middle of a store remodel — to see if I can track down some blank CDs.
Anyhow, that’s really all, for the moment. What’s going on with you guys? Anything fun going on for y’all, this summer? In the next month, I’m gonna be having a few friends come down for a visit, and I can’t wait to see them all.
Until next time! ❤ ❤

I hope I haven’t shared this recipe here yet, and I hope it wasn’t very recently, if I did.
Made with equally eye-balled amounts of:
Garlic & Herb no-salt seasoning
Bacon & chive no-salt seasoning
Italian blend seasoning
Place marinade in a large freezer bag with your cut-up potatoes (I don’t bother with washing them) — shake vigorously till everything is coated. Bake at 350°F (176.66°C) for 35 mins.
I followed this goulash recipe loosely; pictured below is the end result, including the adjustments I made. Comment below if you try it out!!!
