Day 453: The Morning Quickie
Friday, February 08, 2013      12 comments

I was just over on my friend MEDDYPEDDY's blog, and she mentioned the early bird. Some days I really feel as though I've got both hands on the reins and the horses (hah) under control. The key, for me at any rate, is getting up early. Now why is... Read more

Super-long slate of Things To Do, but in amongst the supermarket and post office and dry cleaner are some fun things: starting the next knitting project, placing an order from Amazon, and following some more on a genealogy thread. That soun... Read more

From one end of the spectrum to the other - I've been up for an hour, and indeed, beat the alarm by a good fifteen / twenty minutes. Much preferred to that oversleeping business--! Full slate today, plus extras I hadn't anticipated as two o... Read more
Day 450: ALMOST Missed It--
Tuesday, February 05, 2013      13 comments

It's been one of those days, and I nearly forgot about blogging at all, let alone anything (it is to laff) meaningful. My nutrition tracker is showing a diet disaster, as this has been the worst day for meals I've had in a long time. Oh, not tha... Read more

Thank you all for your comments and kind words on yesterday's blog. Sometimes these really are labors of love, and such was that - I've been lucky to've known The Ancestors of the previous few generations. I had another great conversation with m... Read more
Day 448: Productive Lazy Sunday
Sunday, February 03, 2013      16 comments

Oxymoronic, ain't? pro-cras-ti-nate - v. To put off doing something, especially out of habitual laziness. To postpone or delay needlessly. I have another dictionary that defines procrastinate as "to put off or defer until a later time;... Read more

Early on a Saturday, with the weekend stretching before me - and genuinely a relaxing one, too, now that all the cleaning and cooking is done. (Yes, I have batches of soup, a vegetarian mac 'n' cheese, and sugarless applesauce all finished and r... Read more
Day 446: The Morning Quickie

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
Day 444: The Morning Quickie
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      12 comments

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
Day 443: The Morning Quickie
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      11 comments

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
Day 441 (I think): SUPER Quickie!
Sunday, January 27, 2013      6 comments

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
Day 439A: The Morning Quickie
Friday, January 25, 2013      15 comments

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
