Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head

Well, my ears, actually. I had my ears pierced many years ago, but after a while, I stopped wearing earrings. I left the ears without earrings for years, and eventually, the holes closed up to the point I couldn't get earrings in at all. I left them go for a long while, but finally, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head

ThursdayThoughts: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?

I hope. I am sorry for the prolonged lack of posts. I have no real excuse. We have been busy with company Easter weekend, and a sort of last minute trip to Staten Island the next weekend. I could have done quick updates but I got lazy and tired. I promise to try to be … Continue reading ThursdayThoughts: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?

Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

Nothing really major to report. The world is moving along, the days are longer, and we are having some very Spring-like weather. I have some garden plants starting in the basement on the new heat mats. They seem to be doing their job.

4 of 5 stars Narrated by LeVar Burton, with foreword by Ann Druyan and introduction by Neil DeGrasse Tyson Like just about everyone I know, I watched the public television series of Cosmos when it aired in 1980.

I would have to say that March has come in like a lion this year. After all the nice weather we had just a short while ago, the last few days have been cold and colder. We even had a dusting of snow last night. Today was in the teens with winds that froze your … Continue reading Monday Musings: Winter Is Back, Dog Toys, Writing Updates, Garden Plans, and Yes, Folks, I Am Cooking Chili Again (Just Once)

Tuesday Thoughts: A Day Late, and Most Likely Several Dollars Short

Yes, this should have been done yesterday. I came downstairs yesterday and the house looked like a tornado had hit the kitchen and dining room, and then backed up to assess the damage. So, a good portion of the day was spent dealing with all that. Add to that the dog had been at the … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: A Day Late, and Most Likely Several Dollars Short
