Yes, I know I have been. And for no good reason, really. A few things going on, but nothing that ate up ALL the time. We had more snow. Yay, April, you keep on being the mysterious surprise package you always were! Spring flowers are starting to bloom everywhere. I am working up some garden … Continue reading MIA
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? A lot of branches down and a few trees here. This is what it looked like off the deck: It … Continue reading Winter Is- No, Wait. It’s Here.
So, it's like day 4,732,356 of the Quarantimes, isn't it? I don't know, I have lost count. I'm lucky if I can remember what day of the week it is. Who am I kidding? 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
Have you caught up to the Marie Kondo craze? She of the de-cluttering, stuff tossing, excruciatingly annoying voice? If not, just Google her name. 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:
