On being “lucky”

Who and what is lucky? Recently, since losing my job, some have told me that I’m “lucky”. Lucky in that I have a lot of free time. Especially because it’s summer and I can enjoy sitting outside on my deck in the middle of the day. Or sitting at Starbucks for hours, people watching and … Continue reading

Life, lately.

There are few things getting me through my unemployment. Among other things, music and Instagram have been two things helping me pass the time. If you don’t follow me on Instagram (@clareberrycrunch) here’s a little sampling of what I like to photograph. Click on the images to make them bigger and see a slideshow. Most … Continue reading

It’s Artomatic!

If you live in or around the DC area and have some free time today, tonight, or tomorrow, I would highly suggest checking out Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City. I had never heard of it, but on Wednesday afternoon I was invited by a friend to come meet her there. I had nothing else on … Continue reading

Freedom Week 2012

Where do I begin? I lost my job. I can’t get into what happened, but in the end I am fine. We will be fine. It sucks though, I can tell you that much. But at the same time it does have its benefits. Like declaring this week “Freedom Week 2012”. Noah came up with … Continue reading

Billy kicks your butt

Four days ago I wrote this post explaining how I needed to start working out again. And I did. That day I did a free video from LiveExercise.com on our Roku. I hated it. The male trainer kept remarking about how the female trainer wasn’t on her game and at one point even mentioned that … Continue reading

Excuses Excuses

Recently, I’ve been making many, MANY, excuses for not working out. Sure, we take the dog on a 1.5ish mile walk almost every day. And I’ll occasionally jump … Continue reading

Quarter year catch up

It’s always unbelievable how quickly the months go by, but they always do. Here we are again on the first of April wondering how the past three months have already passed us by. And as a part of that we look back to see what we’ve done in the past three months and plan ahead … Continue reading

Here comes spring…cleaning!

Yup, I’m jumping on the spring cleaning and organizing bandwagon. It’s been overdue for a while now. There were two main things that inspired me to do this. The first was Love and Renovations‘ “February Organize-A-Thon” post which challenged readers to organize one room or area in their house. While I missed out back in … Continue reading

Spring sneak peek

These past few days have been a lot of fun. A big part of that has to do with the fact that the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am so grateful for this! My mother in law was staying with us for the weekend, but we had other things going on too. We had … Continue reading

Bucket List – A day in Annapolis

I love making lists. I’m a chronic list maker. Even more so than making the list, I love crossing things off of them. I’m especially excited to be regularly crossing off some things on my DC Bucket List. I know that the warmer it gets, the more things I’ll be able to cross off. And … Continue reading
