Day 154: Not Much
Thursday, June 02, 2011      8 comments

...which it ain't. Grocery day, and that took the wind right out of my sails. Gah, but it makes me feel lazy or something, but this listlessness is just such a drag. Almost literally. This afternoon there was an appointment with a phys... Read more
Day 153: A Most Unusual--
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      15 comments

--well, no, not really. But there was a surprise involved just the same. I'm not the most organized of people. (I'm sure that will come as a shock, lol.) I tend to lose track of appointments and even what day it is. All these fancy-schmancy... Read more
Day 152: Catch(ing) Up
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      8 comments

...or catsup, or ketchup. Depends what you grew up with, I guess. I had a follow-up PF appointment today, basically just to see how much (if any) improvement there's been. It's definitely better - but definitely still with me. I'm beginning... Read more
Day 151: Short 'n' Simple
Monday, May 30, 2011      6 comments

Just FYI: today was day 15 of rain. That's fifteen straight days. Now, it's not that it rains all day or constant torrential rains or anything (shades of Noah!) but it's seldom sunny at all and rains pretty good for an hour or so and drizzles sp... Read more
Day 150: TOTALLY Wasted Day, lol...
Sunday, May 29, 2011      7 comments

I didn't do anything beyond what needs to be done every day (meals, dishes - the basics). This is what I call a relaxing weekend. I used the race as 'background music' and played with my phone, read part of a book, and worked on a sudoku. A... Read more
Day 148: This 'n' That
Saturday, May 28, 2011      4 comments

I bought a couple pints of strawberries - local ones have started coming in - and I was in the kitchen hulling them for supper. I realized I was looking at my grandmother's hands. She was 40 when I was born, so when she was my age - 58 - I was 1... Read more
Day 147: Whadda day...
Friday, May 27, 2011      9 comments

I must be getting old (cue the lafftrack): getting up and moving earlier than usual seems to have really tired me out. Himself was not only no better this morning, but his neck was even more painful, so he (finally) decided it would be wise... Read more
Day 147: *yawn*
Thursday, May 26, 2011      7 comments

That sort of sums it up. I don't feel as tho I've done all that much today, but the usual housework really took the sap out of me, and the grocery trip was a little more involved than the early-in-the-week one, so... mebbe that's why. I slept be... Read more
Day 146: Out More Than In - of the Office, That Is...
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      6 comments

Himself has done something to his neck. I think he might've just slept on it wrong, but it's been a couple days and isn't getting better. It might even be getting marginally worse. Will he listen to me and go see a doctor? No. He will not. I hat... Read more
Day 145, Part 3: Conclusion
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      5 comments

Over the weekend I realized my new phone* was set to go to voicemail after three unanswered rings. It takes me at least five to fumble it out of pocket or purse, so I started searching thru the settings and tools and what-have-you to find a plac... Read more
Day 145: Our Backyard
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      10 comments

As promised! And while I think of it, the sun has (kind of) come out, but the temps are still in the fifties and the wind is practically ferocious - really blustery, with some pretty strong gusts. It crossed my mind to go over to one of the loca... Read more
Day 145, Part 1: Addendum
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      8 comments

Of course I had to go over to Ancestry and double-check, and yes, it was Great-Great-Grandma Nancy and GG-Grandpa George. The family story stands (well, insofar as that whole generation, the generation after, and the one after them are all gone ... Read more
Day 144: Did I Ever--
Monday, May 23, 2011      6 comments

--tell you all about my Great-Great (I think it was two greats, not just one) Grandmother Nancy? She and Grampa George bought a farm not long before they got married. (Remind me sometime to tell you the little story about their wedding day.... Read more
Day 143: Back to Normal
Sunday, May 22, 2011      5 comments

Instead of short'n'sassy, I think this one rates as short'n'boring, lol... Took a brief walk this morning between the showers, and I got a couple pictures of two of my favorites rhododendrons. I'll try to get them downloaded and posted tomo... Read more
Day 142: Mere Trifles...
Saturday, May 21, 2011      7 comments

As promised: It was all composed from 'cheats,' as Delia Smith calls them - store-bought jelly roll (here known as 'Swiss roll,' but I would've said 'roulade' - oohh,... Read more
