About Curious Steph

Hello, I’m Steph, and I’m curious.

Curious as defined by Merriam Webster:

1. 1a archaic : made carefully b obsolete: abstruse  c archaic:  precisely accurate

2. 2a : marked by desire to investigate and learn They were curious as to who won the game. The cat was curious about its new environment. b : marked by inquisitive interest in others’ concerns : nosy curious about the neighbors’ doings

3. 3: exciting attention as strange, novel, or unexpected :  odd a curious coincidence We were concerned about his curious behavior.

I started thinking about this project after a series of encounters that excited my attention, including the strange one-way sign. I anticipate sharing others in this category with you, and invite your input as well. The intent is appreciation of the unusual and perhaps misused, and at the same time valuing respect for all. No mean stuff, please!

Noting definition 2a: marked by desire to investigate and learn–that’s me, and I’m often surprised by what provokes that desire, and conversely, by what doesn’t. If I’m interested, I’ll go deep and long, and if I’m not, oh well.

I anticipate a varying focus in this blog, sometimes exploring outer curiosities and oftentimes being curious about my life and adventures. Coming up: triathlon, gardening, senior cats, travel, van conversion, figure skating, reading, and food.  Stay tuned!

  1. Hi Steph- I am curious as to why you chose this curious greenish background color? Green dog wash/Martian? It is very hard to see text clearly against that color, unless the text is gray on purpose…. hmm curious…..😁


    1. Thanks for your feedback, Leslie. I just liked the green. Its interesting that its hard for you to read, but I’m reading it on the big screen, and you may be on a smaller device. I’ll investigate other options tomorrow. Lots of learning for me!


  2. Van conversion! I may not get to it in this lifetime, but I dream about the possibilities of a writer’s cottage on wheels. Belated welcome to the Blogosphere!

    1. And a belated discovery of you comment, Beth. Thanks! Yes, some things may stay fantasy, others reality, and not necessarily in the places I anticipate. I guess that’s part of the fun.


      1. I went to university (2 years) at CU Boulder and lived there for three years. I then lived for a year in Broomfield. I worked at Head Ski which was in Boulder back in the 70s. I didn’t realize how great that was until about a year ago… 😀 Louisville used to be a place to eat great Italian food. Is it still? It was a small town. I know it’s not really a small town any more. Last time I was up there was in 1997. I still lived in CA and a friend and I met up, stayed at Chatauqua, hiked the familiar trails and went up to Lost Lake. We wanted to go up to Devils Thumb, but the snow was still pretty deep. I love those mountains and the view on your blog is pretty much what I saw every day driving to work from Broomfield on dirt roads through farms an fields. ❤

      2. So you and I were likely living in Boulder at the same time. I grew up there, my dad was on the physics faculty at CU. Left for college in 73, and returned in 86. Louisville was indeed a tiny town when I was a kid, and we would make the trip for spaghetti now and again. The last of the old italian restaurants (Blue Parrot) closed last year, although there are a variety of new options. I’ve lived in Louisville since 86, was in practice in Broomfield 86-2001, and have my own office in Louisville now. Its still a small enough town, and easy enough to get outside, which I love. The Boulder of my youth is harder to find, although still there–was at a memorial service at Chatauqua last weekend
