Friday, February 01, 2013      11 comments

And so Friday - and a new month - have rolled around again. What is it about a 28-day-challenge that makes me believe I am more motivated than if I commit to a 30-day challenge? But so it is. Starting today it's a full month of fitness, for... Read more

Another gettin' while the gettin's good - I'm reminded of the "Got milk?" series of ads. "Got 'net?" YES! Then post ASAP... People coming to view the house this weekend - snow cancellation, plus apparently a different couple, so we shall se... Read more

No scintillating wit 'n' wisdom - it's come down to this, trying to catch random moments of internet-live in order to post SOMEthing, ANYthing, and thereby fulfil the letter (if not the spirit) of the New Year's resolution. Makes me think o... Read more

I started right out of the gate this morning with "Your internet connection has been disrupted - please try connecting again!" *sigh* Point being, I wanted to get this in while the getting's good. Remember the ads from many years ... Read more

Well, we have an internet connection this morning. Just. Over the past roughly four years, and through three different telephone companies, we've had this same problem: sporadically, with no discernible pattern, the broadband and landline ... Read more

Something is majorly wrong with our 'net connection - in fact, it's this whole area, not just our house. Consequently, this is my blog daily - and I can't even access the pretty pictures! So I'm checking out early, back tomorrow - Deo volen... Read more

UPDATE: "they say" next weekend. We shall see, eh? * * * ...viewpoint on the yin-yang of Life... Positive: no weight gain. Negative: no weight loss. Positive: it snowed last night! Negative: we're snowbound. Positive:... Read more

People coming to view the house - I try not to get my hopes up that "THIS time there'll be an offer," but hope springs eternal, ain't? I sometimes think, if the house appeals to them, if they are drawn to it, they will see past any clutter ... Read more

They're practicing the changes at the parish church - it's freezing cold, and there's no wind. The sound carries well, and I think the crystalline air has something to do with it. Lovely, lovely bells. I've been on the go all day, and I'm b... Read more

Meddy was right yesterday - there never was a "B." Might not be one today, either, as it's grocery day, people are coming to look at the house over the weekend so it's blitz cleaning, and Himself has a doctor's appointment today (bursitis or som... Read more

Day 435: Doldrums
Monday, January 21, 2013      15 comments

According to my dictionary, a state of inactivity or stagnation - sailing ships would be caught in the doldrums of the mid-Atlantic where the winds were too insufficient to push the ship. In this case, it's the calm after the storm and (pro... Read more

I love these things - I'd never have the patience to draw one up, but I love playing with them. Creative toys for the imagination. Some of these questions pop up on just about all of them, while others are new, or at least new to me. T... Read more

When I can't sleep, I can't sleep. When Himself can't sleep, no one can sleep, because he will check every five minutes to make sure no one else is enjoying the rest he is somehow denied... *sigh* Lousy start to the day: lousy night last ... Read more
