We are heading into another week of multiple days of rain. We had a drought for weeks and weeks, and now, we are having our monsoon period. Okay, maybe not quite monsoons, but it's been raining almost daily for over a week. The lawns, flowers, and other plants love it, and we truly did need … Continue reading Well, We Said We Wanted Rain….

At least here it is. We are expecting a possible 4 to 8 inches from tomorrow morning into tomorrow night. And we still have a foot or so out there from last week. I guess Mother Nature just realized she hasn't given us enough snow cover to create the snow melt we will need in … Continue reading Super Sunday Is Going to be a Snow Day
To say, really. I had hoped things would settle down by now, but, nope. It's like some weird, never-ending disaster movie. Can we just roll credits, please? Or, no, wait. Let's just skip straight to THE END. On a more up note (if you are an American football fan): How about those Cleveland Browns? I … Continue reading I Don’t Have Much
We got our first significant snow of the season on Saturday. It started as rain, and progressed to a heavy, wet snow that lasted most of the afternoon. We got maybe six inches or so? A lot of branches down and a few trees here. This is what it looked like off the deck: It … Continue reading Winter Is- No, Wait. It’s Here.
(Those of you not in the USA or who are not football fans can skip the first paragraph.) This was kind of a weird weekend. We didn't watch any football on Sunday. It was the Pro Bowl, and honestly, we gave up watching that one a few years ago. It's just a big media foofra … Continue reading Monday Musings: Games, Poke, a Groundhog, Writing, and a Book for You
You've probably heard that saying: The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. And that's kind of what happened this weekend. Oh, not in a bad way. It was actually quite good, but things didn't go quite to according to plan. (Side note: For those of you who may not have picked … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: The Best Laid Plans
Fair warning: I don't usually talk sports here. I know not everybody is a sports fan, so for those of you who are not into sports and/or football, you can skip this one. So, this happened in the first quarter of the Raiders-Browns game yesterday. It's a short GIF. Go watch. I'll wait. Raiders v … Continue reading Monday Musings: The NFL Has Officially Become the Touch Football League
The All-Pro by Scott Sigler My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the third in the Galactic Football League series, and Quentin Barnes and the Krakens are back for another season of football. This time, they are gunning for the Galactic Bowl and are determined to win the championship. As usual, it's not a … Continue reading Friday Review: The All-Pro (Galactic Football League #3) by Scott Sigler
I am writing this post on Sunday afternoon, so I have no idea how the Super Bowl will turn out. I will say this right now, though: Fly, Eagles, Fly! There is no love for the Patriots in this house, despite the fact that we live in New England. And let me ask you this: … Continue reading Monday Musings: Football, Food, and Fun
