We, along with many other parts of the US, got snow this weekend. We were planning on going to get our Christmas tree on Saturday, but with that being the day of most snowfall, we put it off until the beginning of the week. We got maybe six inches or so. And I see we … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Winter has Arrived
Oh, look- the world is still out there! And all you lovely people, too. Hello! I know I have been MIA for a week or so and I apologize. Our family Thanksgiving was November 17 this year, due to scheduling, which seems to get more interesting every year. We had out of town company, as … Continue reading Monday Musings: And She Rose, Blinking, Into the Light
I am woefully behind, to the tune of over 2200 words! But that is mainly because our family Thanksgiving was last week, so that meant the usual no progress for a few days. So that means this week will be dedicated to catching up. Which I am sure I will be able to do. *fingers … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: NaNoWriMo and the rest of November
Yes, it is. And that means it it NaNoWriMo time. That's National Novel Writing Month for those who are unaware. I am doing NaNo this year, which means I am spending most of my time writing. Reviews may be a bit spotty this month, since trying to get 50K words in 30 days does end … Continue reading Friday Review: It’s November!

We had to say good-bye to one of the ElderCats on Saturday. Miss Ginger (aka Binger, aka Boogie) just couldn't fight the cancer any longer. She had stopped eating and drinking, and while she would move from room to room, she was not a happy kitty. She was 13, so she had a good life … Continue reading Monday Musings: RIP, Ginger
My Halloween story this year is a ghost story. But it is a short ghost story that is suitable for the entire family, including young children. Andy is a very small ghost with a bit of a problem: he can't boo properly. When older ghosts make fun of him, Andy flies off, determined to prove … Continue reading Tuesday Tales: Halloween 2017
Most extensive apologies for the lack of blogging last week. We are going through a bit of a rough time here. One of our ElderCats, Miss Ginger, is not well. At all. I took her to the vet on 10/19 because she was not eating well and she had a lump on her belly. Turns … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Rough Week
Sorry about the lack of post yesterday. I am still trying to shake this cold/bronchitis thing and Sunday was not a good night. I came down yesterday morning, got a cup of coffee, and fell back to sleep on the sofa. Woke up to cold coffee and a late morning hour. So, I spent most … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: A Day Late
I am taking a sick day. I don't often do that, but this cold/bronchitis/whatever thing seems to have taken up permanent residence, and I am doing my dead-level best to evict it. So, no profound (or not-profound) thoughts today. But here, have a picture I took the other day from our deck. The leaves are, … Continue reading Monday Musings: Out, Damned Sickness, Out!
