Perfumed hands

February 29th, 2012 · No Comments

Soon I will go and wash my hands although they are already freshly washed. I was the first one to open and use a fragrance of  SoftSoap that smells like crushed sweet flowers. Scratching my nose makes me think I am standing in perfume aisle after an earthquake. I’m exaggerating here, I suppose, but that […]

Facebook and me

February 28th, 2012 · No Comments

A long time ago I registered with Facebook because someone asked me to – and then I forgot all about it. Then I got an invitation from someone else and I think I registered again and that account faded from my memory. Finally, in something to do with a login to one place wanted to […]

So, my life goes on

February 27th, 2012 · 4 Comments

I think I’ve written about some aspects of this before, but it’s on my mind almost all the time now. And I have to push beyond it. My mother was born when my grandmother was 45 and already had two children, one 18 and the other 14 or 15.  I was born when Mother was […]

Monday – deep breath

February 27th, 2012 · No Comments

I have come to view Monday as the precursor to the end of the week’s exclamation, “Oh, rats, I didn’t get anything done this week.” I don’t start out with the cheery thought of getting everything all caught up; I don’t even start out with the thought of making a dent in the list of […]

Bracing myself

February 25th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Having only heard Ree Drummond’s voice on a few snippets of interview footage, I seemed to automatically “forget” to actually watch her cooking show at least once. I have heard it is painful to watch, confirming my suspicions. Still, that is hear-say and to be fair about it, I need to watch an episode. So […]

I thought I would not post anything tonight

February 24th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I was wrong. That is probably the purpose of this post – to get me some practice at saying I was wrong. Just in case, I might possibly – even as a long shot – need to . . . say I was wrong. (Wow, is that truly a split infinitive or not??)

Lion attack

February 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment

Yesterday, I came home in the afternoon,scanned through some of my email and I found a reminder that MobileMe was going to be ending service. I have never cared for the MobileMe account that used to my Mac account. Having an address @mac.com seemed more reserved and respectful than the address @me.com. I was notified […]

Camp Nature Boy

February 20th, 2012 · 1 Comment

This is Camp Nature Boy making an appearance in the up and down winter of 2012. It is LZP’s backyard in GPS terms, but is for some, more of a clearing in time when clan members meet. Usually, the fire pit would blazing as well as the grill and there would be lawn chars and […]

They took pity

February 17th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Last weekend, a bunch of my Poo friends went to the Ohio Redoubt and left me to my own devices. They partied: I moped. But Rose and Sophie and Bing felt for me and have returned to buck me up. Here’s Sophie with her concerned look. And, of course, comforting Rose. Here’s soft and cuddly […]
