Progress on the Cow Tree

November 30th, 2010 · No Comments

One view. Another view. Of course, we need some more cows to come on board and you know when we stand it up, it will have to be leaning.

I still am surprised

It is hard getting used to – this being the old one in the Scott House. I came to that house as a baby in 1948 and it wasn’t bad. I didn’t realize it but the war was over and won and the country’s mood was pretty good out here in rural Indiana. The background […]

Could this be an overread post?

November 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Sometimes people overhear me. I guess it happens to everyone. But now I am wondering if someone just happened to read something I was posting on the QT. You know, overread what I was writing. I was writing about the book Anglo Files that I saw reviewed in a blog called Rechelle Unplugged. It used […]

The cow tree

November 29th, 2010 · No Comments

I have one of those alpine trees. You know the kind – skinny with scraggly little branches. This one is about four feet high and you can put them around the house in different places at different seasons. About a year ago, I put one of my plant stakes in the branches; this one was […]

School morning after holiday

November 29th, 2010 · No Comments

I don’t think they are up yet, but soon . . . soon. It will be tense. Last Monday, Summer remarked to me that the afternoon of the next day, Tuesday the 23rd, would be the best time of Thanksgiving break. You know, when you walk out of school and vacation looms before you. And […]

This is the heroine speaking

November 26th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I, tremendously wonderful AmeliaJake – yes, THAT AmeliaJake – woke up way before dawn today and thought, “I’ll bet those bozos (Yes, calling folks bozos is not that tremendously wonderful, but it just I am in a position of being the tremendously honest AmeliaJake.) didn’t take out the trash last night. Let me shorten that: […]

And she’s off

November 25th, 2010 · No Comments

No, not my rocker. Well, maybe I am but that is not what I was thinking. I’m thinking turkey into the roaster. I decided to forgo the Sarah Grismore “get up at 4 am method” and started prepping myself with a Cure and some Alka-Seltzer (cold variety – Orange Zest -) at 6:03.  I’ll be […]

Pushing the season

November 24th, 2010 · 2 Comments

We know it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but we are just enjoying making some decorations. Summer and I made this tree, which is dubbed “The Alien Tree’ because of the alien angel on the top. Today we discovered it may be controlling our actions so we are considering wearing tinfoil hats. Then there was the […]

Well

November 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

The anniversary of Mother’s death, the news that Colin is returning, Thanksgiving planning, sorting through estate stuff  . . . and I am progressing like an Etch-a-Sketch line produced by using my toes while blindfolded. It, like the image I just created, is not pretty. But I am here and I have my cocktail shrimp […]

Our glittering floor

November 20th, 2010 · No Comments

Last night in preparation for Der Bingle’s week-end arrival, Summer made a welcoming ornament to hang in the vestibule. Nooooo, it is not as nice a gesture as you think. She and I were wandering around The Dollar Tree and came upon these three red balls hanging together for, yes, a dollar. They were covered […]
