Well, let's see. The short short story anthology, "Crossed Wires and Other Very Short Stories" drops tomorrow. So, it will be available at just about all the ebook retailers out there. I will update links as I see them go live (or as quickly as I get to it, anyway.) It is already live, and … Continue reading What’s Goin’ On?
Yep, it's another cloudy, gloomy, rainy day. At least, it's trending warmer again and that will continue for most of the week. We may even see some sun! And to top it all off, today is also colonoscopy prep day for me. Yay! But that does give me the chance to preach a bit. <soapbox>When … Continue reading Rainy Days and Sundays
Well, more like fasting food. We started intermittent fasting last week. This past year of being locked down and hunkering inside has not done good things for my weight. Our doctor recommended that the BaldMan try the fasting method and so I am going to try it, also. For those who may not be familiar, … Continue reading Fast Food
Or at least I hope it has. It's supposed to be warm all week. I have been out doing some clean up and prep work in the garden boxes. I got the tomato and cucumber boxes moved back to their growing spots, moved the hops buckets out where they will get more sun to warm … Continue reading Monday Musings: Spring Has Sprung
A mélange, if you will, of tidbits on a variety of topics. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we got one of those DNA test kits for Lambeau. We have always suspected that he has some bully in him, but the actual results surprised me. He is 100% American pit bull terrier. Surprising because … Continue reading Much Ado About Nothing
I had to take our ElderCat, Amber, to the vet on Friday. (That's her up there in the picture, sitting on my desk.) She has had mouth problems for a while now, but we've been reluctant to do major dental work on her because she's 16 and anesthesia can be a problem for the older … Continue reading Hanging By A Thread
My brain has not been all that coherent lately. Everything seems to work in fits and starts, and I can't maintain any sort of momentum. Sure, I could blame the pandemic and a few other things, but I don't think any one of them is really what's going on. Maybe it's just a combination of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Short Takes
This year? Not so great. We started the gardening year during the main part of the COVID-19 lockdown, so we weren't going anywhere. Which meant that getting in things like planting medium and other yearly needs was put off for a bit. I did start some of the vegetables indoors as usual, but I had … Continue reading Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?
My rating: 4 of 5 starsSince we moved to our current home, I have not been able to have an earth garden. That's one of the minor drawbacks of living in a townhouse development. So, I have moved my gardening to pots and other containers, both flowers and vegetables. This book is a great resource … Continue reading Friday Review: The Vegetable Gardener’s Container Bible by Edward C. Smith
Another week, and we are still on lockdown. Most of the medical experts are saying that, here in the US, we should hit the surge for the COVID-19 infections in the next two weeks. We are being strongly urged to stay even more isolated than before. Which means the recommendation right now is that, for … Continue reading Monday Musings: Checkin’ In
