Forgetting the phone

The seam, before... What you don't see is how deep the scratches in the leather were! But my Diamond Girl had really done a number on that cow... Read more

We start this tale with The Prisoner meowing plaintively at the threshhold of the "new" family room. He clearly does not trust these changes! ... Read more
Wednesday morning thoughts
Wednesday, February 12, 2020      23 comments

We've had a couple of nice sunny days, with temperatures rising above the seasonal norms, and this afternoon we're supposed to get a front through here to throw us back into Winter. How typical of February around here! Anyway, even when cold, ... Read more

Family Room project

Good thing I plotted some "wiggle room" into the scheduling. The painters (step 1) had said they could come on the 30th - 31st. Turns out they came the 31st, 3rd, and 4th, and didn't get out of here until 6 p.m. last night! And I had fo... Read more

Coach workout and potato soup
Tuesday, January 28, 2020      17 comments

This was my first strength training session since the ankle / foot / heel / plantar fasciitis reared its ugly head. Coach took it fairly easy on me... we did not do calf raises, instead substituting my stretch hang off the roller bar. And he ha... Read more
Closure... at least of this particular Winter Storm

What a week it has been, and what a challenge to try to make the ol' homestead safe for those who have pets to walk in the neighborhood. The choice... Read more

Remember when 35 was "middle aged"? And now it's YOUNG! Anyway, weather wimp that I am, I have been working on the driveway and chipping at ... Read more
Pioneer woman versus Weather Wimp!
Friday, January 24, 2020      18 comments

The past three days? Weather Wimp has won out. First, on Wednesday afternoon, ALICIA363 offered a phone call instead of our usual after-her-workday walk. I accepted. Chipping at the ice on my sidewalk during the afternoon before that cal... Read more

Leaving well enough alone?
Sunday, January 19, 2020      18 comments

So I went out there with my snow shovel this morning, in the 3* F chill, and crunched over the crusted driveway down to the walk, thinking I would ONLY clear the walk, leaving the texture of snow on the driveway. It's not deep, and easily drive... Read more
Safely back in the cave
Saturday, January 18, 2020      21 comments

It's cold out there, but sunny. The wind has blown the snow around, and I'm leaving it in place for the moment, as there is a thin layer of black ice at its root. I know. I stepped out toward the end of the day yesterday and felt it! Yikes. ... Read more
Remember the beans? Evolving Soup!
Friday, January 17, 2020      20 comments

One thing I love about stove top cooking over multiple days is that I can make my soups evolve. Yesterday I added browned ground turkey to the beans mixture. Today I peeled and diced some potatoes into it. Now it's looking hearty and ... Read more
