Day 117: In My Backyard
Tuesday, April 26, 2011      11 comments

This afternoon, after a cloudy morning, the sun finally came out. There are loads of rhododendrons and azaleas in our yard. Not all of them bloom at the same time, of course, but there are at least a good half-dozen that are 'in the process' rig... Read more
Day 116: No Blog Tonight!
Monday, April 25, 2011      9 comments

No, I mean it. I really mean it. You can quit looking, I'm serious. There IS NO BLOG. Now goodnight. Oh, what's that? Where's the picture? You're right. That proves this blog is over, doesn... Read more
Day 115: The Latest Meme

Got this one from DEBRA0818 - thanx, Deb! 1. Were you named after anyone? Nope. Mom said after a character on a soap opera (radio, lol); Dad said it was after a lake near their house. 2. When was the last time you cried? Oh, ... Read more
Day 114: Quiet Day
Saturday, April 23, 2011      5 comments

Mostly it's been a day of catching up. A couple of the eBay items finished, and I have a few more ready to list. Did some paperwork and got things ready for dinner tomorrow. We're having roast chicken, instead of ham. I love ham, but it don't lo... Read more
Day 113, Part 1: Farewell to Great Budworth
Friday, April 22, 2011      7 comments

I'll tell you, it is definitely warm here today - no cloud cover, hot sunshine, and the humidity is rising. Not generally my favorite when it comes to temps, but with the slowed metabolism (bleh) from the Lisinopril, I'm always cold, so - I'll t... Read more
Day 112, Part 2: ...to be continued...

I had hoped to get the rest of the pix posted, but alas, not to be. I'll do them tomorrow (Deo volente). I've been trying to do 30-40 minutes of mild cardio, in addition to the stretching / mild exercises for the 8-Week Diabetes Challenge.... Read more
Day 112, Part 1: We Continue!
Thursday, April 21, 2011      7 comments

I'm still always surprised to wander up to small parish churches virtually any old time and find the door unlocked. Most of them have a discreet sign welcoming visitors and asking to 'Please Close the Door Behind You.' That's not for any kind of... Read more
Day 111: Going to Great Budworth
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday was the serendipitous trip to Great Budworth - how's that for a name? Last fall we went to a place that has become a (relatively) national name as small villages go - Kibworth - and there are a lot of '--worth' place names. I suppose j... Read more
Day 110: ...and then there's the break in the routines--!
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      6 comments

What a good day today has been! First, there was a three-month review from the diabetes class I'd gone to last January / February. Altogether there were about a dozen people there, some from my group and some from a group that finished a ye... Read more
Day 108: Routines
Monday, April 18, 2011      8 comments

Dance routines. Morning routines. Comedy routines. Then there's the ordinary, day-to-day, same ol' same ol'. Today was the last. Twenty-some years ago I saw a movie called Parenthood. Mostly I wanted to see it because it had been ... Read more
Day 107: Headache(s)
Sunday, April 17, 2011      5 comments

I don't get migraines - for which I am eternally grateful - but I often get headaches that are real doozies. In this case, the infection has been quelled (dunno that it won't come back, but at least this antibiotic is more powerful than the prev... Read more
Day 107: Ordinary, but Satisfying...
Saturday, April 16, 2011      3 comments

Nothing remarkable about this day in the annals of Life, but a decent day even so. Sat down to watch the Formula 1 qualifying trials with Himself, tho I spent most of the time reading and working on puzzles. What a welcome break that is! I just ... Read more
Day 106, Part II: End o'the Day
Friday, April 15, 2011      5 comments

Got some things done around the house. Most importantly I went to the fitness class and did pretty well, all in all - I took it slowly (keep in mind, I'm the youngest in the group, but there are several 'oldsters' who can run rings around me, lo... Read more
Day 106, Part 1: BEATLEBAND!
Friday, April 15, 2011      6 comments

I woke up a little earlier than usual this morning - it will take a day or two for the sinusitis to quiet down (now that I have an antibiotic) and until then, sleep is not very high-quality. Beatleband! One of the reviews I read describes i... Read more
Day 105: Another Day Older...
Thursday, April 14, 2011      10 comments

...dunno about the 'deeper in debt,' but most likely, tho this year I didn't have to pay in. No wins, no losses, just an even draw, lol. If I think about it I feel very guilty about not keeping up with my Sparkin'. I have very little free t... Read more
