Day 244: 'Only One Pound'
Thursday, September 01, 2011      12 comments

Over on the WeBlog team a member asked if any of us had ever stated 'Oh, I only lost one pound'? As if it's a sign of failure, rather than an accomplishment. I don't think I've done that - Lord only knows, I'm down to counting every tenth o... Read more
Day 243: Restless
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      8 comments

That's the best word for how I'm feeling this evening: restless. I did Wednesday chores early today so we could meet up with some friends after lunch and go window shopping (us girls) and trial-run new electronic toys (those guys). I'm not ... Read more

Day 241: Valentine's Day (video blog)
Monday, August 29, 2011      15 comments

Please excuse the shakiness of the clip; this was not at all the blog I intended to post. I am not an emotional person - I don't cry easily, and good friends, even lifelong friends, and most family members can probably count on one hand the... Read more
Day 240: Early 'n' All
Sunday, August 28, 2011      7 comments

Time getting away from me as it does (you already know this about me, doncha?) I thought I might try a two-birds-one-stone approach today. I don't often get a chance to respond to comments on blogs - I used to be pretty good about it, but w... Read more
Day 239, Part 2: Hrmph
Saturday, August 27, 2011      8 comments

I don't want to post this blog now, as opposed to just before bedtime, but needs must. We are having major connection problems; the server people say it's our phone line. Our landline is working fine, and the phone people say it's either the ser... Read more
Day 239, Part 1: Looking for Rainbows
Saturday, August 27, 2011      14 comments

A while back, we had a hard rainstorm early one morning. My computer faces a window, and when I glanced up right over my monitor was a rainbow. We're coming off a dry spell - as Faithful Readers know, since we were making hay while the sun ... Read more
Day 238: Selected Short Subjects
Friday, August 26, 2011      6 comments

Actually, I'm not sure there are any subjects at all. It drizzled most of this morning, but cleared up around lunchtime (I say 'cleared up,' but that just means the drizzle stopped and occasionally I could see patches of blue sky). After lunch I... Read more
Day 237: This Blog Is Full Of ----
Thursday, August 25, 2011      8 comments

I come from a long line of dairy farmers - certainly by 1840 they were on the farm that my grandparents had up until 1960. My father eschewed cows, choosing instead to raise pigs. (Go ahead, have your little jokes. You won't think of any I ... Read more
Day 236, Part 2: I Escaped The Procrastinator Gremlin!
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      5 comments

...and then this afternoon it rained, so I had a yardwork reprieve. But before that, and before we did today's workload, I remembered to take some pictures: The fish ... Read more
Day 236, Part 1: Beware The Procrastinator Gremlin!
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      7 comments

There's an evil little voice* that lives inside my head. [Okay, maybe there's several little voices, but for today we're just dealing with one. The others will have to wait.] Like an insidious demon perched on my shoulder, it constantl... Read more
Day 235: Duckweed and Crapola
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      10 comments

Not necessarily in that order. I spent half of today thinking it was the weekend. Dunno if I thought it was last weekend and I just haven't caught up yet, or if I'm jumping the gun to next weekend. Weird. First, I meant to take a coupl... Read more
Day 234: Just More of the Same, Really
Monday, August 22, 2011      6 comments

It being Monday, it was grocery day. Then I spent an hour or so working on cleaning the upholstered furniture in the LR - which must've worked pretty well, as Himself noticed. After lunch it was back out to the yard - not so much that 'show... Read more
Day 233, Part 2: Day is Done
Sunday, August 21, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday and today were both yardwork days - we spent virtually the entire time outside, pruning, removing, replanting, raking, sweeping - you name it. I wish I had thought to take more 'before' pictures, but alas, it didn't occur to me un... Read more
Day 233, Part 1: Dawn Breaketh
Sunday, August 21, 2011      7 comments

Just a short update - thank you one and all for the support and suggestions. I got out the earplugs and they did the trick. The thumping bass and loud vibrations (and what sounded to be terribly offkey singing - maybe they had karaoke going) wer... Read more
