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
I guess it is. Wow. After the seeming endlessness of the past year, this first month of 2021 has flown past. Or at least it seems so to me. I suppose, in some ways, that's a good thing. It might mean things are looking a bit more normal, right? Anyway, the weather has gotten cold … Continue reading Is It Really Nearly the End of January?
To say, really. I had hoped things would settle down by now, but, nope. It's like some weird, never-ending disaster movie. Can we just roll credits, please? Or, no, wait. Let's just skip straight to THE END. On a more up note (if you are an American football fan): How about those Cleveland Browns? I … Continue reading I Don’t Have Much
We got our first significant snow of the season on Saturday. It started as rain, and progressed to a heavy, wet snow that lasted most of the afternoon. We got maybe six inches or so?

Most days, I have to look at the day/date on the computer to know. Are they running together for you, too? … Continue reading Monday Musings: Rain, Rain, Go Away

You will find more than you ever wanted to know- or hear. I mean, look, I get it. We all probably have too much stuff, but her voice just makes me … Continue reading Move Over, Marie Kondo! I Have Stuff to Put There!
I think we blew through it a couple weeks ago, didn't we? Seems we have had very little sunny weather since that warm spell. I mean, I'm glad we are getting enough rain, but a little sunshine on my shoulders would be welcome! Oh, hey- we bought more plants! It seems we can't stop this … Continue reading Monday Musings: What Happened to Summer?
Well, it is another gray and gloomy Monday, with rain in the forecast (and outside, so I guess those guys were right today!). It has left me with a gray and gloomy attitude, also, and not a whole lot of ambition. I have stuff to do, just not much desire to actually do it! April … Continue reading Monday Musings:
