I, and I alone

July 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Summer did not come with me to Dayton; she chose to stay in Kendallville and bond with my porch, although I believe her mother thinks the two of them are bonding. So it is nice and quiet here – oh so wonderfully quiet. Anticipation is noisy in the brain, dontcha know. You hear the questions […]

From moment to moment

July 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

I don’t know what to do today. Yesterday, I suddenly had the urge to have my hair trimmed, cut or shaved off and so hopped in the car and went to the shop and didn’t choose an option. I let the hairdresser do it. I’m going to a wedding on Saturday and fortunately no roots […]

Thunderstorm coming?

July 28th, 2010 · No Comments

There is a line of weather to the north of us that is moving at a southeast slant and we are under a thunderstorm warning – the severe kind. I can feel it coming, the way you can anticipate the end of tiring walk or seemingly endless chore. I know that we have had a […]

Yesterday’s update

July 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Had I had my computer with me . . . and Internet access . . . I would have posted yesterday about the impromptu, make up your own course and rules croquet game that Summer set up when she faced an unexpected obstacle. Yes, Shane chased the balls down and ran off with them. And, […]

My next day

July 27th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Yes, in reference to my post yesterday, today is the next day, but it is only starting – slowly. People at the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse are not bustling around; they are tucked away in various corners sleeping off yesterday. I was away and I believe they played and told knock-knock jokes that left […]

My day

July 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Got up and went to Indianapolis to take Colin back to Options. Stopped by Keystone Mall to see the Apple store and Crate & Barrel. Got off on an exit to go to Taco Bell. It was a road with roundabouts and we never managed to reach the eatery. Went to another Taco Bell and […]

What you don’t expect

July 25th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Last night I woke up to what sounded like a dog breathing rapidly, urgently and in a near-death way. I steeled myself to face the situation and then realized the ceiling fan was making the sound. Sydney was sleeping peacefully right underneath it. Just one of those living in the moment episodes. Personally, I would […]

Thinking about nothing

July 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Driving to Mother’s yesterday, I started thinking about nothing, literally. I think about it periodically; I can’t remember when I started, but I was little. I know I lack the mental ability to get to the bottom of this nothingness question, but it fascinates me anyway. It’s a nothing/space question, really. Like what is at […]

More air-conditioning

July 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

You wonder why I have not been talking about the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse and its swinging and slamming screen door? It is because the denizens there got a feel for this summer’s temperatures and humidity and decided to turn on the air-conditioning and watch Netflix movies and DVD’s and Phil Harris’ four to […]

Petsmart surprise

July 21st, 2010 · No Comments

Well, these are Kong Wubbas. Shane loves a good Wubba. So we went to Petsmart to get him a couple more; we got one that is a bear which is not pictured here and the spotted one above. We thought it was a dalmatian – a firefighters friend. Later we found out it was a […]
