• Day 24: intricate

    Stealing plant ideas from the landscaping in and around Maymont.


  • Day 23: plain

    Plain tired, I tell you what.


  • Day 22: textile

    This our best blanket. Made by Val’s grandma and a treasured possession.


  • Been making Ceasar salads with Chex Mix instead of croutons for the last couple of days because I am a genius.

  • Day 21: symmetry


  • Senior Year, 2022 โ€” โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…. ๏ฟผ I watched this instead of thinking about the Governor.

  • This World Alone, 2021 โ€” โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ. ๏ฟผ So many dissolves.

  • Thanks to Del. VanValkenburg for standing up for state employees.

    The policy unilaterally takes away our agenciesโ€™ ability to offer flexible schedules to their employees โ€” even when an employee has been teleworking since before the COVID-19 pandemic. It also takes away the discretion of agency leadership to manage the particular needs of their teams…While the commonwealth frequently cannot compete with private-sector salaries, we can and do offer great health benefits, a retirement plan and, until recently, workplace flexibility. Virginia needs a top-tier workforce for our government to function effectively, and we cannot afford to lose talented state employees.

  • Day 20: beverage

    Extreme coffee, screen porch, and native plant vibes.


  • Day 19: indulgence

    The Hot Date from Hot For Pizza is officially my favorite pizza in Richmond.


  • Two beers + riding home at night = Romantic feelings for my bike.

  • Day 18: random

    Riding bikes with the randomest collection of folks, including the 3rd District Councilmember (who came out on her blades).


  • Avatar, The Last Airbender: The Shadow of Kyoshi by F. C. Yee โ€” โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…. ๏ฟผ

    I hate it here, moving to the Fire Nation, bye.


  • Day 17: hold

    Sometimes one is not enough.


  • Day 16: time

    Sodium lights are gross, but walking down the middle of a quiet, sodium-lit street is pretty chill.


  • Day 15: clouds

    Clouds AND a power line! Really checking the boxes for moody pics.


  • Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn. OK, I definitely do not know enough to rate this film, but I do know that it definitely hates cars.

  • Day 14: Fences

    We recently spray-foamed shut all of the gaps and cracks in our shed after I saw a rat scurrying around. Today, I found this guy back behind our fence ๐Ÿคฎ.


  • Day 13: Community

    We have a ton of fairy gardens in our neighborhood. Some are very upscale, like this one, other are more “places for children to store their toys at the base of a tree.” Both are great!


  • Day 12: Tranquillity

    Hammock meadow vibes in action!


  • Day 11: Maroon

    Working on pruning his Japanese maple so it looks less like Cousin It and more like the Karate Kid logo. Still have some work to do, I think.


  • Day 10: Pot

    Experimentation with container gardening continues! This white, pink, and blue situation is delightful.


  • Day 9: Bloom

    Look at this blanket flower! Get outta here!


  • Day 8: Union


  • Paddington 2, 2017 โ€” โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ. ๏ฟผ A soothing balm/marmalade.
