Monday Musings: He’s My Dog. I Get to Decide Who He Interacts With

I probably pissed someone off last week. I took Lambeau out for his morning pee-and-poop. We walked around the cul-de-sac as usual and he did his thing. On the way home, he decided he wasn't quite finished pooping so we walked along the side of the garage toward the back of the house and he … Continue reading Monday Musings: He’s My Dog.

Wednesday on Writing: Training- and Retraining- Your Writing Muscles

If you read Monday's post, you know that I have been kind of down and out as far as writing goes for the last two weeks. Either I had too little time or was too sick to worry about word counts.

Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football

Monday Musings: Knee Solution, Movie Time, Weekend Work and Play, and Writing Updates

Went to see the D.O. at our doctor's office on Monday for my knee. He thinks it is an arthritis flare, not the bursitis my doctor thought. He said he didn't detect any bursitis or ligament or tendon issues. But there definitely is swelling and discomfort. He gave me a steroid injection, and, Holy Drug … Continue reading Monday Musings: Knee Solution, Movie Time, Weekend Work and Play, and Writing Updates

Monday Musings: Yard Work, Garden Plans, and Dog Walking

We got a good bit of yard work done on Saturday. It was a nice day, although a bit breezy. The BaldMan took the snowblower off the lawn tractor (No More Snow!). He didn't put the mower deck on.
