a purchase

November 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Yesterday I bought a four-pronged cane at an auction . . . for me. The cane, not the auction. There I was standing on a sore knee and right in front of me was the cane. I bid; I got it for two dollars. So, yes, I am definitely going to the doctor about it […]

two wreaths

November 29th, 2008 · No Comments

Yesterday afternoon I decided to make a wreath for my friends in the nursing home; I decided to make a grapevine one . . . from square one. I went out and started pulling down grapevine and then Der Bingle saw me and he came to help; Summer came out, too. There we were tugging […]

The day after

November 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Yes, the day after Thanksgiving – and my performing of all those domestic and culinary tasks that have never been my forte. Last night, I was thinking, “Oh, sweet sofa.”  I remember waiting to watch the weather channel show on the Hindenberg and then my glasses were off and the TV was off and it […]

Oh, power outage, oh, power outage

November 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Yes, just a little carol to the local transformers and “jumpers” – whatever they may be – that acted up for several hours last evening. Gosh, darn, I could not use electricity to vacuum or run the washer or the dishwasher or to turn on lights to see to clean up. It was such a […]

Thomas Bickle’s light

November 23rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

That golden area toward the edge of the middle left is Thomas Bickle’s light as it looks from where I am sitting this morning.  Last Christmastime when Thomas was on hospice care, I put up our outdoor lights that twinkle on the slim branches of large bushes that have lost their leaves. At night the […]

turkey hunt

November 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

So, we are putting on our hunting clothes, although we may forgo the flap-earred, fur-billed trapper cap, and starting our search for a turkey. The Thanksgiving kind. If I can manage it, we’ll go for a turkey, with a turkey breast tucked in between the legs in the roaster – and we’ll do the jumbo […]

We went here today

November 21st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Unfortunately, we didn’t go to Logan’s today; we just went to Fort Wayne. I love Logan’s; it is what I would like the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse to be. See: But the PBC&R looks like this: and this: and this also: But nevermind that. We were in Fort Wayne to take Colin to his […]

cleaning

November 19th, 2008 · No Comments

I am not one for cleaning, but I have been doing it lately. The kitchen, the porch. Oh, the porch started getting cleaned and organized and then it became my center of operations and looks like a farm tool shed now, but nevermind that; it will probably get better. Yesterday and the day before I […]

Two hour delay

November 18th, 2008 · No Comments

Ah, icy snow and Augggghhh, a two hour delay.  Summer celebrated by boisterously dancing around the living room, chanting, “No gym, no gym, no gym.”  Exercising to exorcise the demon gym from her schedule. Okay, whatever. Now we have a bright blue sky and lots of sun . . . for today. Tomorrow and the […]
