Never know what you will find

March 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse has strange things sitting about. I started staring at this toothpick holder the other day . . . and he has teeth! I think this fellow is what is known as an Anri figure – but I’m really not sure. I’ve seen him for a good part of my […]

Much ado about mulch

March 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Yeah, yeah, these guys went and got mulch and put it out . . . but in the second picture, looking beyond the mulchers, you no longer see strings of white lights nestled in the bushes by the door. That is because of AmeliaJake and her nifty clippers.

Anyone remember Edward G. Robinson?

March 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I had terrible, terrible dreams last night from which I had a disturbing time waking. Now, my eyes and nose feel all swollen and my head aches and . . . Is the this end of Rico?

There is this thing about blogging

March 27th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Last evening I checked in on a blog. It is a new one for me – very well expressed and well written. It was a casual stopping by for me; the author had come to her blog that day with a not-so-casual topic. She wrote about the suicide of a close family member – one […]

Time and weather

March 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Yesterday it was chilly and rainy and at about 8:30  in the morning it was gloomy; today it is chilly and the sun is out and it is 8:30 and it’s cheerful. I feel upbeat; I actually feel like cheering for the sun. And for blue sky. We take sun when we can get it […]

Wildflower thinking

March 25th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Late last fall, I decided I would plant the back field of grass with wildflowers and then have mown  grass pathways. I’ve been doing a wee bit of research and now more than a wee bit uncertain about this. It appears to be a complicated and labor intensive process – unless you pay to have […]

Back for more rehabilitation

March 25th, 2010 · No Comments

The diesel started to groan yesterday and I thought the sound was from the power steering, so this morning I drove it over to Max Myers Motors to see if it was low on fluid or worse. It is worse than just low, but we don’t know how much; I called Robert and he came […]

three stools and a cat

March 24th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Yes, I went into GoodWill and there were these three stools sitting here and they were cheap and so I bought them for the kitchen and wherever. They are shorter than bar stools and taller than chair, so actually work well with the kitchen counter. How they will work with butts is yet to be […]

Wednesday again in the East Noble School System

March 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Today’s Collaboration Wednesday 30 Minute Delay ( remarks on this issue*  here and here) has me sitting here with a little smirk on my face . . . It is Spring Bring. Mwahahahahahahahah. *To be honest, I don’t think the school system considers my consternation with this practice an issue. They are, I believe, totally […]

And, oh by the way, thank you Key Bank

March 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

I am not hiding my errors in this post; I am noting them as teachers in high school did. I was up in the attic rearranging stuff so more stuff could come up. A noble endeavor, I know. And then I heard ‘Moonlight Sonata Serenade coming out of a box; that tune is my ringtone. […]
