Surprise tree

November 30th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Yesterday, when I put up the tree at the LaGrange County House, I expected it to  be a short one that I would put on a chair and position on the porch. Well, in the end, it’s there on the porch, but it’s not on a chair. It is six feet tall. I think what […]

First sticking snow

November 29th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Look closely at the middle and spot the basketball hoop. This whole picture is “nothing but net”. I was amazed this afternoon by the amount and speed involved in our first real snow event, or, more accurately, our first slushing. It started about 3:30 pm while I was driving and by the time I reached […]

I opened up the computer and saw a post I hadn’t published

November 29th, 2011 · 2 Comments

So I published it. Right below this. About the tree. Cryptic. This message, not the tree. Okay, I’ve had my fun for the day; let me plunge into real sentences. I am going to Las Vegas this weekend for Der Bingle’s  Company Christmas party; I drive to Dayton on Thursday and we fly out on […]

Our tree

November 29th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I don’t know when we’ll put up our tree this year. We get it at a tree farm* down on the north side of Fort Wayne – usually a Fraser fir that comes home sticking out of the trunk. We don’t put it up until the middle of December and I surround it with fountains […]

The things I do today

November 28th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I’m not quite certain what I am going to do this day. I might go to LaGrange County and decorate a small Christmas tree for the front window and put it on a timer. There are other ways I could spend my time, but I want to do this. It is a sort of keeping […]

It seems like Sunday because Der Bingle went back to Dayton today. But it is not – tomorrow is Sunday. Two Sundays in a row. I’m not particularly fond of the Sunday night feeling; I think it goes back to school days and the put off homework. Sunday night was a grind. A downer. A […]

A little time test

November 26th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I think the time imprint on WordPress settings got fouled up and was not posting correctly, because it was not 4:18 am when I pressed publish on Thanksgiving morning. It’s 6:40 right now and I am submitting. UPDATE: Now wait a minute, the posting time isn’t showing. Did I goof up and it doesn’t show […]

I napped today

November 25th, 2011 · 2 Comments

In 45 minutes I am going to have my hair colored, which is good. I have my Kindle charged up and will spend the processing time well entertained. I started this post thinking I has something to say, but I think I was wrong. That often doesn’t stop me, but this afternoon I think I’ll […]

Guess it will be a late afternoon dinner

November 24th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I am awake. When Mother was alive, we’d have the turkey in by five am. That, obviously, would have been 35 minutes ago.  I don’t know when the chef and the cheflets will get up, but I’m okay with sitting here in the quiet of Thanksgiving morning. I’ve already had some fun; yesterday I made […]

Grandpa’s coming

November 23rd, 2011 · 3 Comments

That is what I am hearing around here. Along with “What time will Grandpa get here?” I feel bad about it . . . not jealousy, more like a sense of throwing him to the wolves while I settle down with my Kindle. But he seems to like it, so . . . YES! Woo […]
