Last week was pretty unremarkable. No hospital trips, no one was sick, nothing out of the ordinary. I have to admit that it was kind of nice. We did our usual shopping and running about on Saturday. On Sunday, we took a trip to a local garden center. It is a large one, with several … Continue reading Monday Musings: Quiet Times
Well, my ears, actually. I had my ears pierced many years ago, but after a while, I stopped wearing earrings. I left the ears without earrings for years, and eventually, the holes closed up to the point I couldn't get earrings in at all. I left them go for a long while, but finally, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head
I probably pissed someone off last week. I took Lambeau out for his morning pee-and-poop. We walked around the cul-de-sac as usual and he did his thing. On the way home, he decided he wasn't quite finished pooping so we walked along the side of the garage toward the back of the house and he … Continue reading Monday Musings: He’s My Dog. I Get to Decide Who He Interacts With
So, you know that old saw about the best laid plans of mice and men? That was the last couple weeks for me. It started, really, around the weekend of the 18th-19th. We were out doing our usual Saturday grocery shopping/errands day, and the BaldMan kept getting dizzy spells, especially when he was getting out … Continue reading Monday Musings: There’s a Week and a Half I’ll Never Get Back
(That picture above is from a previous year) We went to the local garden center yesterday. It will be the first of a few trips, but at least we have a start to the flowers for this year. I am doing a bit of a different color scheme this year. The past few years, most … Continue reading Monday Musings: Flower Power
I have bird feeders. I know that's not unusual. Lots of people have bird feeders. But I have some strange birds that come to mine. Not strange as in weird species. These are fairly common species that act weird. For instance: I was out on the deck, filling the feeders. I took down the hummingbird … Continue reading Monday Musings: Am I the Only One with Demented Birds?
I hope. I am sorry for the prolonged lack of posts. I have no real excuse. We have been busy with company Easter weekend, and a sort of last minute trip to Staten Island the next weekend. I could have done quick updates but I got lazy and tired. I promise to try to be … Continue reading ThursdayThoughts: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?
Easter is upon us. This coming Sunday, in fact. I always think of Easter as the beginning of Spring. I suppose it's partly because at the time I grew up, Easter was when you got your new Spring dress, shoes, and coat. Oh, and the hat. Can't forget the hat! Things have changed now and … Continue reading Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Nothing really major to report. The world is moving along, the days are longer, and we are having some very Spring-like weather. I have some garden plants starting in the basement on the new heat mats. They seem to be doing their job. It's been about a week and I have a few seedlings poking … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That
It's almost the end of March, and you know what the means, right? Well, maybe not, but what it means for me is that it is time to start thinking about this year's garden. I have thought about it before this, and have my plan for the year, plus I ordered seeds. But we are … Continue reading Monday Musings: Marching On
