Day 127, Part 1: Catchup on the Side...
Maybe not on the side, exactly. More like front and center.
First, a few photos (and comments - when do I ever miss the chance to editorialize?) from the visit to George the other day.
I've described and taken pictures of the small WWI... Read more
Day 126: The Best-Laid Plans--
--o'mice and Kaseys, lol.
I have two, count 'em, two minutes till my bedtime. Yes, it's self-imposed, but it's nearly as inviolable as logging my daily nutrition.
I sorted thru the last of the clothes I had packed away - there's anothe... Read more
Day 125: An Outdoors Day
I packed up a little picnic lunch and we left the house about noon - and didn't get back till 7! We went over to one of the National Trust sites, Tatton Park, and spent the day wandering around the gardens. We've been there before, several times... Read more
Day 124: The Day Flew By--!
Did it ever! First was the grocery store. Did I mention yesterday was a holiday in the UK? Nobody seems to know WHY it's a holiday. It's the first Monday in May, which is a 'bank holiday.' Beats me. Nothing to do with the royal wedding - that is... Read more
Day 123: Just Another Day
Wasn't that an old McCartney song? I could look it up, but I'm too lazy to do that, lol...
Spent the morning making the house look unlived-in: beds all made up, dirty clothes put in the hamper, clean towels out on the towel racks, dirty dis... Read more
Day 121, Part 2: Whatta L-o-n-g Day...
Mostly it was a long day of blitzing: we blitzed the house, the yard, and just about all points in between. I stripped coverlets off beds and shook them to freshen them up, plus vacuumed and dusted the places I didn't yesterday.
I'm pretty ... Read more
Day 121, Part 1: Happy May Day!
Here in England's green and pleasant land the origins of May Day festivities are lost in the mists of antiquity: they predate the Roman invasion and may even go back to the Stone Age. While the Brits don't have exclusive claim to celebrating the... Read more
Day 121: Productivity
...making up for lost time. Packed up a batch of soup into individual portions - now there's a dozen lunches in the freezer. Washed two loads of laundry, hung it outside for a change (not real warm, but sunny and with a light breeze - perfect la... Read more
Day 120: Done 'n' Dusted!
I have been totally indulged today. I got up at 7, did the morning routine (well, hurried thru it, more like!) and was in the recliner at 7:55, ready to roll. They 'officially' finished at just about 4. I don't ordinarily watch much television, ... Read more
Day 119: Quickie...
Tomorrow is THE big day - well, I can't help it, I'm a royalist Anglophile. An Anglophilic royalist? Point being, I plan to park my own self in the living room and glue the remote to my hand. He is forbidden to disturb me until The Deed Is Done,... Read more
Day 118: News Day
Well, not 'Newsday' as in the old NY newspaper - is that still published?
First, had a couple different eBayers meeting me to collect their stuff in person, which saves me major hassle. I meet 'em at a local McDonald's - easy for them to fi... Read more
Day 117: In My Backyard
This afternoon, after a cloudy morning, the sun finally came out. There are loads of rhododendrons and azaleas in our yard. Not all of them bloom at the same time, of course, but there are at least a good half-dozen that are 'in the process' rig... Read more
Day 116: No Blog Tonight!
No, I mean it.
I really mean it.
You can quit looking, I'm serious.
There IS NO BLOG.
Oh, what's that? Where's the picture? You're right. That proves this blog is over, doesn... Read more
Day 115: The Latest Meme
Got this one from DEBRA0818 - thanx, Deb!
1. Were you named after anyone?
Nope. Mom said after a character on a soap opera (radio, lol); Dad said it was after a lake near their house.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Oh, ... Read more

Day 114: Quiet Day
Mostly it's been a day of catching up. A couple of the eBay items finished, and I have a few more ready to list. Did some paperwork and got things ready for dinner tomorrow. We're having roast chicken, instead of ham. I love ham, but it don't lo... Read more
