It seems like overnight, all the trees have filled out with leaves. It's good to see all the green out there. Even if something that is growing right now is wreaking havoc with my allergies. It looks like most of what we planted last year is coming back nicely. A couple things I am not … Continue reading Leaves, Everywhere!
I have been slacking again, I know. But, really, there isn't much new going on and I have felt kind of stressy lately. I don't know why that is, either. On most fronts, things are at a holding point. The BaldMan's chemo is ongoing. He just finished the third of six treatments last week. He's … Continue reading Catching Up
Rainy Days and Sundays
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
It’s Winter Again (Still?)
March is such a fickle month. Last week, we had temps in the 50s and the 30s. Just a few days ago, it was 60 out there. Today, I am looking out the windows of my office at 23 degrees (that's F for those not in the US), wind, and multiple inches of snow. March … Continue reading It’s Winter Again (Still?)
A collection of things that have been going on around here of late: We lost my Mom in early May. She was 93, and had a stroke last August which she recovered from relatively well. She had some weakness, although she was walking a little. Her speech was slurred at times and she had trouble … Continue reading Miscellanea
Monday Musings: Spring Has Sprung
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
Much Ado About Nothing
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
Monday Musings: It’s Spring Again!
After snow two days last week, a bit of warmer weather has returned. The dogwood in front of our townhouse is blooming nicely, and the daffodils are blooming. Let's hope it stays around this time! We are still under the stay at home restrictions due the COVID-19 pandemic. I realize people are getting antsy and … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s Spring Again!
Monday Musings: Checkin’ In
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
Monday Musings: Games, Poke, a Groundhog, Writing, and a Book for You
(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
