Ah, rain . . . but with a storm

June 30th, 2012 · No Comments

The wind blew very hard; it looked as if the bushes outside the porch windows were going to take off. But they didn’t – at least here. After things had died down my brother-in-law called me to see if I were all right because 91 MPH WINDS HAD GONE THROUGH FORT WAYNE! Things did blow […]

Okay, I’m better

I’m not going to link to the post below, but I’m not going to take it down. I mean, really, it wouldn’t be right for me go, “Uh, nevermind,” Anyway, whenever I need a slap in the face, I can just read it and cringe. So, on with the day . . . and those […]

Well, I handled that well

June 28th, 2012 · 2 Comments

I cried in the doctor’s office – not sobs, but bouts of tears. All about the possibility of consequences from high sugar. All because of a label. I’d walked around this before – this not being fit and letting people down – and it seemed I’d dodged the bullet. But the thoughts about failing to […]

Ack!

June 27th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Sorry, that ACK is all I could manage as I looked at the temperature now – 57 – and then saw the predicted high of 90. It is pleasant outside, pleasant and cool. BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO STAY THAT WAY.!!!!!  No reason for the caps or the red, unless it is my inner klaxon […]

Ah, bare feet

June 26th, 2012 · No Comments

Finally, my shoes are off and so are my socks and my feet are resting next to each other on a soft, fluffy comforter. I couldn’t do it earlier because I had to water the tomatoes plants on the moundlet, and to do that, I have to move the hose three times. It is done […]

Well, this is a fine kettle of fish

June 25th, 2012 · No Comments

I pulled my hair in a topknot after I washed it to allow the roots to dry in a position of rehabilitation, whatever that means . . . and I forgot about it. So I’ll have crazy hair tomorrow. Ahem, some might find that quite fitting. (I can HEAR YOU, little Sophie.)

40% chance of precip

June 24th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Weather.com’s thunderstorms icon is sitting on their webpage with a p.m. alert under it. But we have seen this 40% prediction before . . . and have seen no rain or lightning nor heard any thunder. I feel like a hypocrite, however, after all my years of complaining about Indiana days that have dawned so […]

Not the usual post

June 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment

For a few years now I have been following a CarePage I happened upon when I was doing an article on new ways to keep friends and family up-to-date on the condition of someone fighting illness and/or injury. Nikki Weinberg. That’s this young lady’s name. She recently turned 21 and has spent the last four/five […]

I’m hot and it’s only 90

June 20th, 2012 · No Comments

Stomping trash means climbing up on a ladder and stepping on top of the trash bags in the bin.(First place and opened pizza box across the top.) That climbing part puts you closer to the sun and there you go, melting away. One of our trash bins has lost a wheel and so I must […]

Wednesday

June 20th, 2012 · No Comments

Oh, great, Amazon’s Kindle division just sent me an email about “grisly reads for summer”. I guess the little monitoring computer program has flagged me as a person who might enter someone’s house and wonder if they have some body part in their refrigerator. I have to admit I just finished a book about the […]
