Well, we made it . . . or did we

January 31st, 2010 · 1 Comment

We had a good day –  a little more than we planned, but we made it. Straggled off the train at 10:38 p.m and got home a bit after 11. I lay down and the next thing I knew it was light outside. LIGHT! Here are a couple of pictures, which come to think of […]

Unless something untoward happens

January 29th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Tomorrow at this time, some of us will be on a train – a real life Amtrak train – on the way toward Chicago. We are just going and coming back on one day for the heck of it and for younger eyes to see the big city. We are hoping to go to the […]

East Noble’s infamous Wednesday 30 minute planned delay

January 27th, 2010 · 3 Comments

You are not supposed to blog when you are angry; okay, I’m not angry. I am just a frustrated blob hitting her head on a brick wall. I have spoken about this artifact in East Noble scheduling before – first in general, then when the high school only delayed 30 minutes on Wednesday so teachers […]

The war on clutter

January 25th, 2010 · No Comments

I have been working in the bedroom/sitting room area, digging my way through my usual “personal memory things I cannot live without” and the accumulation of stuff gathered over the past few months and plopped into those rooms for convenience of knowing where they were – Christmas things, Mother’s papers . . . oh and […]

Hunchchest chili

January 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

Der Bingle made some chili today and I think it may be modified because it tastes good but then it starts to make your mouth very hot, not to mention the back of your throat. I was sampling some and as usual, I dropped a bit on my shirt. But, I assert that because the […]

Moments in life

January 23rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

This morning before dawn – even though it is a Saturday – I was making myself a foldover using smooth peanut butter and as a I got a big glob on the knife, it fell off and wrapped itself around the handle to the cabinet below. It was still a glob, only a very complex […]

Two days of no 2-hour delay

January 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Hey, folks, I’m sorry. The freezing stuff went south of us, okay? It’s not that you were cursing or even growling and I appreciate that, but there was gloom. Now I know it took a lot for you to work yourself up to silent gloom and disgust and I hope the trend continues until being […]

Jarlsberg cheese dip

January 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment

Last weekend Der Bingle came back from Scott’s with a container of Jarlsberg cheese dip and I had a taste and now I am addicted to it. I bought another container today and when I put it on a cracker and then in my mouth, I realized it wasn’t as intense as I wanted it […]

Alternate history

January 19th, 2010 · 2 Comments

My mother was told in October- specifically on the day after her birthday  – that she had advanced pancreatic cancer and “very little time” left. I think I heard the words “three month” but even I knew that was optimistic. As it was she died on the 17th, a week after she found out the […]

The deed is done

January 17th, 2010 · No Comments

I have showered and washed my hair and guess what? I cannot find my curling iron. I realized this before I got in the shower and so I thought about the problem while the suds were doing their thing. I thought about brushing it carefully while it dried, using my fingers to fluff it out […]
