So last year, I feel like you and I, dear reader, entered a new phase of realness on This Square Peg. This is a lifestyle blog, yes, and we discussed various aspects of my life, including openly sharing with you that 2019 mostly stunk. I initially wondered if these were things I even wanted to [...]
#30: Guess who was super busy yesterday and the day went by without the next to last blog entry for Blogtober? So, yeah, we forgot. Buuuuut... ************************************** #31: We Did It! Day 31. A whole month of talking to y'all everyday about my favorite season in some way, shape, or form. A whole month of [...]
Hey y'all. As you can imagine, with temps in the 40s and 50s around here in Somewheres, Texas (which is hardly seasonal; we should be around the 60s and bit of 70s, for the most part, but I certainly am not complaining), the pulling out of coats and sweaters and boots and scarves is in [...]
It rained mercilessly today. There was no coffee to be had, and no time for books, but it was certainly a true rainy day. I don't care for these kind of days, but that's the rub of autumn. She will give you color and hues and leaves, but you shall also receive handfuls of rain. [...]

I wrote this poem a few years ago. It has a fairly familiar theme. *wink* Autumn: Brevity I pull open the doors for you, my intermittent love, eager to greet you with the cool kisses of yet another fall. It does not bother me that you arrive once a year bearing your all-consuming brevity. It [...]
Some of the upcoming temperatures in my little corner of Texas for the next few days. I'd do a cartwheel, but the way my knees are set up... Needless to say, super excited for the impending cooler breeze in the atmosphere. Happy Monday, Autumnites...
You're welcome, mon petit chou.
Two weeks ago, I decided to make a change to welcome fall. Shall we? Yes, she's a redhead now. This lovely shade that I love so will remain until the gray hairs, lying dormant for now, decide to engage in their usual Terminator-like uprisings and rebellion. Until then: I greet autumn with this fresh, new [...]
