Sorry for the lack of post last Monday. The only excuse I have is that it was the start of NaNoWriMo and I didn't want to get behind on week one. As of the end of the week, I was about 39 words ahead of my personal schedule, so I was happy. No, 39 words … Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s November!
There is a definite nip to the air most days now. Not that I am complaining, mind you. Much as I like warm weather and dislike the really cold, this has been, overall, a not that great summer. It was either hot and humid, or raining, or both. So, now that we are seeing some … Continue reading Fall Is Definitely in the Air
This little "adventure" has dragged on far longer than I either expected or wanted it to. The BaldMan has been in one hospital or another since early September, and as of today, is in rehab to gain back some strength and become ready to come home. No idea as of right now when that will … Continue reading Slowly Getting Back into Things
Just a quick heads up here. I am taking a quick break from blogging and a lot of the rest of the internets for the rest of this week. Here in USA, we have Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday, and although we will not be hosting our holiday dinner until Sunday and it will be … Continue reading Monday Musings: Holiday Break
Oh, yes, there is a definite chill in the air these last few days, especially in the morning. We've dipped into the mid-30s overnight already, and the mornings are, if not really cold, at least requiring a light jacket for walking the dog. We've had some gray and rainy stuff but also those deep blue … Continue reading Monday Musings: The Times, They Are A-Changing
Where did the time go? It just doesn't seem like it should be Labor Day weekend already. We'll be seeing pumpkins and mums everywhere soon. "Two's Company" is just about done. I have a few chapters to review this week, but it is basically at the point where I am calling it final. Oh, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: Wow! It’s September!
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!
The BaldMan spent a good portion of Sunday installing the Sonos Connect and hooking up the Advent speakers in my office. Now I can listen to music (or whatever) without the constant hisssssss hisssss from the stupid speakers I had hooked up to the computer. Iz nice! It's October already? Geez, where did September go? … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Can Haz Good Sound!
It has been cooler here in the Northeast lately. I can't say I am not enjoying it. I am not a fan of extreme weather. I don't like really hot or really cold. This beginning of Fall cooling from the heat of summer has felt good. I have had windows open and the AC has … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football
For some, this weekend is the end of Summer. Even though Fall doesn't officially start until later this month, this was the last Summer holiday weekend and the kids are either back in school or heading back in the next few days. So, in practical terms, it does mean the end of long, lazy days … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: The Beat Goes On
