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
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!
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
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
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!
Yes, indeed, there is. And even I have to admit that it's kind of nice. This summer was brutal far too often, with high temps and high humidity. The chilly feel that we have now is a rather nice change from that. It's cozy sweater and hoodie weather. Boots and scarves. Even hats and gloves, … Continue reading Monday Musings: There’s a Chill in the Air
The weather turned colder this weekend. No snow yet, but I am sure it is coming. I think. We are now forecast to get up into the 50's and possibly see 60 later in the week. Very odd for Christmas week. We are almost at the end of the year, and it looks like I … Continue reading Monday Musings: Weather, Not Gonna Make That Reading Goal, Weird Cat, and Writing
We went out on Saturday and got our tree. We had an artificial one for years, but in all honesty, it wasn't all that much better than a real tree. I think the darned plastic thing shed more "needles" than any real tree we've had. And then, there is the annual Fight-To-Get-The-Thing-Out-Of-The-Attic fun. And the … Continue reading Monday Musings: O Chistmas Tree, Deck the Hall, and All That Seasonal Jazz
I think it's time for a puppy update. 🙂 We took him with us when we went to our daughter's in MA last weekend. We had our big Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, as that was the best day for everyone's schedule. It gets harder every year to work around those things! The BaldMan's family came … Continue reading Monday Musings: Puppy Update, You Can All Decorate for Christmas Now, and Writing Progress
Just a quick post to say that the Friday Reviews will be on hiatus until after the holidays. With all the hustle and bustle (which seems to be even more hustling and bustling this year for some reason), I have not been reading as much, and so am falling behind. I am hoping to be … Continue reading Friday Review: On Hiatus
