...outta money, and outta patience, lol. Nothing new here, then.
I'd hoped to get to a couple of things but today has been unusually hectic around here. The early-AM grocery run (which takes longer because I do a menu, complete list, all th... Read more
...not necessarily in that order.
I've got an appointment on Friday with the GP. The appointment's been on the books for awhile - among other things it's time for the quarterly HbA1c - but I'm very interested in seeing what he comes up with... Read more
Now, don't get me wrong: I don't suffer from arachnophobia. I don't go into hysterics every time I see a spider, or even a generic creepy-crawly. But the idea of bug bites and stings is horribly repellant to me (you may remember my 'Fear of Wasp... Read more
There's an old song called something like 'A Most Unusual Day.' Why is it no one ever seems to write songs about 'It Was A Typical Day' or 'Nothing Remarkable Happened Between Waking Up and Going To Bed'?
Today was a most usual day, and as ... Read more
A fellow Sparkler, YOGATIME, wrote a blog entitled 'Age Appropriate.'

We're 'only' on the 3rd of September and already I feel as tho I'm getting farther and farther behind. Oh, I don't think I'm any behind-er than I was on the 31st of August, I just FEEL that way, lol...
The people across from us have a grave... Read more
Well, no, they probably don't. In yesterday's blog I wrote that one Brazil nut has something like 5 or 6 calories. It didn't look right to me at the time - what I thought (of course) is 'Gee, that's not so bad, especially since it's healthier th... Read more
Over on the WeBlog team a member asked if any of us had ever stated 'Oh, I only lost one pound'? As if it's a sign of failure, rather than an accomplishment.
I don't think I've done that - Lord only knows, I'm down to counting every tenth o... Read more
That's the best word for how I'm feeling this evening: restless.
I did Wednesday chores early today so we could meet up with some friends after lunch and go window shopping (us girls) and trial-run new electronic toys (those guys). I'm not ... Read more

Please excuse the shakiness of the clip; this was not at all the blog I intended to post.
I am not an emotional person - I don't cry easily, and good friends, even lifelong friends, and most family members can probably count on one hand the... Read more
Time getting away from me as it does (you already know this about me, doncha?) I thought I might try a two-birds-one-stone approach today.
I don't often get a chance to respond to comments on blogs - I used to be pretty good about it, but w... Read more
I don't want to post this blog now, as opposed to just before bedtime, but needs must. We are having major connection problems; the server people say it's our phone line. Our landline is working fine, and the phone people say it's either the ser... Read more
A while back, we had a hard rainstorm early one morning. My computer faces a window, and when I glanced up right over my monitor was a rainbow.
We're coming off a dry spell - as Faithful Readers know, since we were making hay while the sun ... Read more
