Middle of Noble County

January 31st, 2009 · No Comments

Of course, I’m not a Noble County girl; I’m a LaGrange County girl. Now, if I were in Europe and meant someone else from Indiana, I would say we were from the same place. But, here, when I’m in Noble County, I’m only really just living here – I’m not FROM here. I’m from this […]

Four

January 31st, 2009 · No Comments

It was four degrees outside, according to the bank sign that registers warmer than it really is, this morning when I took Alison to work. I was a little chilly in my sweatshirt – I had worn a regular PB one and not the sheepskin- lined one. Had there been wind, I suppose I would […]

Everyone has suggestions . . .

January 30th, 2009 · No Comments

I have been thinking of reorganizing the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse because that would only be slightly more work than cleaning it up and getting things back in place. However, if I actually reorganize, folks have let me know they have opinions. Lydia – remember Lydia? . . . well, here she is: She’s […]

Weather and oats

January 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Well, despite the view from the front door, the storm went south of us. However, it brushed across us enough to close the schools after an initial 2-Hour-D. So THEY are HERE with ME. Sydney was upset when no one headed off this morning; he likes the peaceful quiet of a normal school day. He, […]

The visit to the nursing home

January 26th, 2009 · No Comments

I went to the nursing home this morning, but I wanted to take something for the door to replace the wreath I had made for Christmas. I had considered making a  winter/springtime wreath, but, well, sometimes you are just wreathed out. So I got – ready for this –  nicely crafted sunflowers for the door. […]

Well, today

January 25th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I am at a lost at what to do today; to be honest, I am a lost at what to do first or how to find an excuse to do nothing. Need to get a refill for high blood pressure medicine and that means a trip to the Wal-Mart because they have it for a […]

Longing for tallness

January 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

I am now the shortest one in the house; I have always been short. I don’t know if that is really accurate because I remember when I was under 12 people said I was going to be tall like my Aunt Dorothy. It didn’t pan out that way. In the day, as they are saying […]

Not a menu picture

January 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Okay, this is a view of a crunchy peanut butter foldover on deli rye with the shot focused in on the bread. After I reviewed the pic, I decided to look at my foldover to see if the loop was a hair. No, it is not. It is too little for me to see, even […]

WordPress 2.7 . . . aha, figured out the pictures

January 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

When I posted pictures in previous incarnations of WordPress, you could click on them and see an enlarged view. But then, in WordPress 2.7, you couldn’t.  I noticed this when I tried to click on the mother’s hand picture to see it in its truly scary alien form, but it just stayed the same. The […]

Gifts to fit

January 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment

When someone knows you quite well, and sees something he thinks you would enjoy and gets it for you, it is nice. Of course, some little surprises I sort of keep to myself because maybe other people don’t need to wonder about why I would like certain things.
