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-
This, That, and the Other Things
Another week is in the books. Seems like they are speeding by now that we are approaching the last months of the year. The holidays are right around the corner. Thanksgiving is next week here in the US, and that is the official start to the Christmas season, although Christmas has been evident in stores … Continue reading This, That, and the Other Things
Monday Musings: The Times, They Are A-Changing
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
Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Easter is upon us. This coming Sunday, in fact. I always think of Easter as the beginning of Spring. I suppose it's partly because at the time I grew up, Easter was when you got your new Spring dress, shoes, and coat. Oh, and the hat. Can't forget the hat! Things have changed now and … Continue reading Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Monday Musings: The Holidays Are Coming!
Indeed, they are! I have started decorating, and baking (as you know if you've been following my Wednesday posts). I have a bit more to do on both counts, but we've got a couple weeks, so all's good. We will be having our family celebration on December 28 this year. Usually, we try to do … Continue reading Monday Musings: The Holidays Are Coming!
Monday Musings: I Guess It’s Really Winter
We had snow last week. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I live in New England, and it is November. Snow happens. It isn't like it was a full on Nor'easter blizzard. It was maybe six inches, and although it was wet, heavy stuff, the air temperatures stayed high enough that we didn't get any … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Guess It’s Really Winter
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
Monday Musings: Holiday Greetings!
Christmas is this weekend. Seems to have come up really fast, at least to me. Of course, that means another year will be passing into history. Can't say I am sorry to see 2016 go. With all the wonderful souls we have lost, both personal and celebrity, friends who have had tough times, and a … Continue reading Monday Musings: Holiday Greetings!
