For those of us in the US, this past Thursday was Thanksgiving which, for many, marks the beginning of the winter holiday season. It's also been a bit of a controversial holiday lately for some, but I choose to think of it more as a day for family and gratitude. The actual history of the … Continue reading And So It Begins
Yep, the snow continues to fall around here. Well, and a lot of other places, too, many of which are not at all used to all this white stuff everywhere. At least we here in New England are quite familiar with the stuff and what to do when it covers the entire world. In spite … Continue reading The Winter That Just Keeps On Giving
Well, I did it. I got a DNA test for Lambeau. We know he's a mixed breed, and were told he has "American pit bull" in him, but I have always been curious about what else might be mixed in there. He was from a rescue litter, so it could be anything. I got the … Continue reading Who Are You?
At least here it is. We are expecting a possible 4 to 8 inches from tomorrow morning into tomorrow night. And we still have a foot or so out there from last week. I guess Mother Nature just realized she hasn't given us enough snow cover to create the snow melt we will need in … Continue reading Super Sunday Is Going to be a Snow Day
It snowed a bit yesterday. The depth on the deck is about a food. I haven't measured out back on the ground. It started mid-afternoon yesterday and ended sometime last night. It was also quite windy, so the stuff was blowing all over. There were periods where the accumulation was in inches per hour. Made … Continue reading We Can Has Snow!
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?
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.
A few unrelated jumbles of thought for the beginning of a new month: Saturday was Halloween. Our town decided not to cancel trick-or-treating this year, but encouraged masks for everyone and the usual social distancing practices. We did have candy to hand out. Yes, I wore a mask- a proper one. Didn't get many kids … Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s November!
(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
The Demon's in the Details: The Yo-Yo Files #3 is now available at most e-book retailers. I think it still has to show up on a couple, but the major ones do have it available for purchase today. I have all the info and links that are live now on the book's page. I was happy … Continue reading And It’s Live!
