Hey, guess what? As I am typing this on Sunday, the sun is actually out! That's a big, and welcome, change from the last while, where all we have had is clouds and rain. I hope it sticks around for a while. I have spent the week slowly, and I do mean slooowwwlllly, taking down … Continue reading January, Week 2
Just a quick note to say that I am taking a break from And So On for the next week. I am going to enjoy the holidays, today's snow, and all the food, family, and fun the goes with this time of year. I hope your holiday season, whatever you celebrate or have celebrated, is … Continue reading Holiday Break
Ho, Ho, Ho, and All That
Welp, it's running right quickly down to Christmas Eve and Christmas, and then the beginning of the New Year. The house is mostly decorated, with just a couple more things to get set up. We got a tree last week. It's pretty, if a bit short, but it is very, very full. Hanging ornaments is … Continue reading Ho, Ho, Ho, and All That
Merry, Happy, Jolly, Joyful
Just popping by quickly on this Christmas Eve to wish everyone a happy holiday season, whatever you celebrate. And if you don't celebrate anything in particular, a wish for a peaceful and fun weekend. I'll be back around after the New Year with more of whatever it is I do here. Until then-
A Week of, Well, Not Much
Really not much to report here. Last week was quiet, and this week is pretty much the same. I did go for my annual mammogram today. Which is why this post is late getting put up. The morning was used up doing normal Monday things, and I had the appointment at lunchtime. Nothing unusual but … Continue reading A Week of, Well, Not Much
We Went To A Live Concert Yesterday!
We went to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra. They did "Christmas Eve and Other Stories." And let me tell you- it felt GOOOOD!!! to be at a live show again. Music is a lifelong love and with all the COVID shutdowns and tour cancelations that past couple … Continue reading We Went To A Live Concert Yesterday!
Monday Musings: So, This is January, Right?
I am sitting here in my living room, with windows open and the outdoor temperature is 65 degrees F. I checked the calendar. Yep, it's January 11. We were supposed to have rain along with the warm temps, but that seems to have passed us by in favor of sun and clouds. It is supposed … Continue reading Monday Musings: So, This is January, Right?
Monday Musings: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….
Well, you know, right? I have the house done, and we got our tree on Saturday. It's a beautiful balsam- nicely shaped and full, but not so full it takes up the entire room. Lights are on it and I will get the ornaments done. Many thanks, as usual, to our friends at Lawndale Farm … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….
Tuesday Thoughts: Winter has Arrived
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
Tuesday Thoughts: We Made It Through Christmas, Didn’t We?
I'm pretty sure we did. How about you? It was a good day. All the kids and grandkids were here. It was noisy, and chaotic, and frankly, by the time they all left, I was grateful for the quiet! But that's what a holiday is- family and fun and festivity. Dinner was delicious, everyone seemed … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: We Made It Through Christmas, Didn’t We?
