Or is that 'short 'n' sassy'? 'Sweet 'n' sassy'? Beats me. We'll leave it as it is.
Didn't get the pix downloaded yet, but I will. The trifle went over a treat (as they say); there's a smidge left for tomorrow. I didn't have so much as a ta... Read more
Even got a wonderful trifle (very English!) made for dessert - I'll post pix after the weekend. I've only made one before and the Brits were, well, polite but allowed as how it wasn't quite a 'real' trifle, whatever that means, lol. Himself says... Read more
I'm ahead on some things (for once): I've got the menu done for the weekend, plus the grocery list, so tomorrow should be a short trip, even tho I'm getting more than usual. I've got the guest room all clean - bed stripped, laundry washed, clean... Read more
So, company for supper, some Beatleband en masse - they're off. I'll watch a little television, read another chapter in my current book, then call it a day. You know what ol' Sam Pepys used to say - 'And so to bed.'
Goodnight, Sparklers, wh... Read more
I'll throw this out and see what you think: I am COLD. I mean, as in freezin' cold. True, it's been rainy and damp here, perhaps a little chilly, but my hands and feet are like blocks of ice, and even walking around and my... Read more
If I wasn't so lazy (mmm, well, mebbe more like 'not terribly talented in this particular mindset,' lol) I'd write a parody to the tune of 'Downtown.' Ah well. If anybody does, call my attention to it - I'm sure it'd be fun!

...things are definitely better. We're not out of the woods, but at least there's a brighter side. There's always hope.
Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, prayers, and encouraging comments. You're wonderful people, you Sparklers, ... Read more
...and probably deeper in debt. Anyone else remember the old Tennessee Ernie Ford song?
I spent a lot of time - TOO much time - on the computer today. I've gotten so wrapped up in the genealogy research. Himself gave me a gift subscription ... Read more
Your comments are so heartening - family, friends, fellow Sparklers, you have all really put me on top of the world. Thank you so very much!
Short blog tonight, but another little 'baby step' to improvement: this morning I got on the WiiFit... Read more
I know. I'm wordy. I've been the despair of more editors than I can count - I once made one cry, because I just could not edit my pieces to fit the space allotted. Ah well.
Back in December, I posted a sort-of one-year blog.

--there's a thunderstorm. We don't get them very often, thank goodness, but I do not enjoy them at all. I'm as twitchy as a cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.
I grew up in a small, very sheltered valley, where thunder and lightning happene... Read more
