Tuesday Thoughts: Chili Again, and Doggie School

Saturday was the 33rd annual Massachusetts State Cook Off. The BaldMan was Chief Judge, and I was Scorekeeper, as we have been for the past several years. It was a lousy day. So lousy that we decided not to bring Lambeau, even though this is one he could have gone to, and put him in … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Chili Again, and Doggie School

Monday Musings: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Well, it wasn't a full vacation. Just a weekend, and there were obligations along with the fun, but it was a good weekend, so I'm counting it! A couple of weeks ago, we went to Arlington, Vermont to be Chief Judge (the BaldMan) and Scorekeeper (me) at the Vermont State Chili Cook Off. We always … Continue reading Monday Musings: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Friday Review: Etiquette and Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger

Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger My rating: 4 of 5 stars Sophronia Temminnick is a problem. She is what we would call a tomboy, certainly not proper behavior for a young lady of class in the Victorian world of manners and social class. But Sophronia really doesn't care. She much prefers climbing, investigating how … Continue reading Friday Review: Etiquette and Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger

Monday Musings: Lambeau and Beginner Attention Class

Lambeau had his first Beginner Attention class last Monday. He was- Lambeau. He whined and cried at all the other dogs, kept trying to get to them and every person that came by, and was just his usual PITA self when he's in a situation like that. I ended up working with him outside of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Lambeau and Beginner Attention Class

Monday Musings: A Walk in the Park (Sort of), Back to School for Pups, and Some Writing Related Stuff

Continuing our weekend walks with Lambeau, this week we went to Dexter Drumlin in Lancaster MA. Did you know that a drumlin is an elongated hill in the shape of an inverted spoon or half-buried egg formed by glacial ice? And that the word comes from the Irish word droimnin, meaning "littlest ridge"? I didn't. … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Walk in the Park (Sort of), Back to School for Pups, and Some Writing Related Stuff

Tuesday Thoughts: Off To A Late Start

Yeah, never got that blog post done yesterday. It just seemed like there was always something else that needed done, and by the time I actually sat down here at the computer, I decided to make this a Tuesday post. We have a tomato on one of the plants outside! Yay! It's tiny and green, … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Off To A Late Start

Friday Review: Hanging Baskets, Window Boxes, and Other Container Gardens by David Joyce

Hanging Baskets, Window Boxes, and Other Container Gardens: A Guide to Creative Small-Scale Gardening by David Joyce My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked up this book because now that we live in a townhouse, we don't have a lot of space where we can put in our own gardens. We had a hanging … Continue reading Friday Review: Hanging Baskets, Window Boxes, and Other Container Gardens by David Joyce

Monday Musings: Another Day, Another Week

I hope all you Dads out there had a really nice Father's Day, and were able to do whatever you wanted to, whether it looked like work or just chilling out and relaxing. The BaldMan did make dinner, but that's his relaxation time, although sometimes, you would not think it's so relaxing! He smoked some … Continue reading Monday Musings: Another Day, Another Week
