It Was A Dark And Gloomy Day
Friday, August 17, 2012      40 comments

It certainly was all that this morning but the sun came out later and it was a perfect day in the mid 70s. Unfortunately, I was too sick to enjoy it. I'm having trouble sleeping again. Tuesday night was dismal but I still needed to do my s... Read more
Anyone from Cleveland or the Akron Area?
Thursday, August 16, 2012      18 comments

My son has a college friend who came back to visit the area this spring so that he, my son, and a group of other friends could go to a special concert in St. Louis. He stayed a week here and my son and the other friends were his hosts and showed... Read more
Cheese With Your Whine, Madam?
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      32 comments

Yes, lots and lots of cheese, thank you. I got up yesterday and felt like dog dookie. Actually the term getting up doesn't really apply much. I slept horrible and felt terrible and I didn't get up on time. I dragged myself out of bed later... Read more

The weather has been really nice the last 3 days. Ever wonder what it's like to be an octogenarian? Both of my grandmas lived to be in their late 80s. One had a lot of medical problems for years prior to her death. The other was only sick f... Read more

My son was off work today so it was cage cleaning day. He washes all of their food bowls, cage beds, sand boxes, toys, potties, etc. and I wash the cages. Some of the chinchillas helped me today. LOL. You can imagine how much help they are. Have... Read more

Yesterday I decided at the last minute to get my shopping and errands done and as I hadn't prepared ahead of time I had to get up and make my list and get bills ready to pay before I could even get started. I didn't get out of here until late so... Read more

Today is the anniversary of my grandmother's death. She died in 98 and I think of her almost every day. My mums started blooming today. I always like to have a flower blooming on days like this. I spent the day cleaning out emails. I got o... Read more

The weather has been better. More seasonal. Certainly not mild but no triple digits or real high humidity. We have also been getting a little rain. I hope the worst is over. We stayed home Saturday and got a lot of work done around here an... Read more
Got A Little Rain

My son and hubby loaded the air conditioner on my son's truck last night when my son got home from work as we needed to take it to a town about 25 miles from here to be worked on. It is under warranty. My son was off today so we took it. We stop... Read more
Put Down The (Goodies) If You Want To Play The Saxophone
Thursday, August 02, 2012      33 comments

I love the song "Put Down The Ducky" from Sesame Street!! It was one of my favorite kiddie songs. The "goodies" mentioned in the above title that I need to put down are macadamia nuts. I can't be near them. Normally I can't afford them but with ... Read more

This morning, a little after dawn, I looked outside and I saw one of my little turtle buddies already sitting in the swimming pool I made them. She looked quite content. I took her out some food. Shortly after, 3 other turtles came. 2 males and ... Read more
Getting A Lot Of Rest In
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      20 comments

I didn't mean to give everyone the impression I am depressed or dying. LOL. I'm not. I'm just stressed from being sick. Anyone who has had MRSA, R.A. and the shingles can relate. Trust me, one of these is enough to deal with. It's hard to stay c... Read more
Hanging In There - Kinda
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      23 comments

Yesterday was my mother's birthday. She died in 1996 after being sick for 19 years. It sounds crazy but I never thought that she would die even though I watched her suffer for so many years. I thought she was invincible. She clung to life for my... Read more
