Not to be politically incorrect

January 31st, 2013 · 1 Comment

Der Bingle has a penchant for ordering things from Amazon.com that he feels will catch my fancy. One time, he sent me a hollow blade rose-colored knife and it has become one of my favorites. So, he ordered another one, but I believe they have changed the color; it is pink. Does that make it […]

Yesterday was warmer

January 31st, 2013 · No Comments

I was in LaGrange County yesterday and Shane was running in the north field and I was walking around in my sweatshirt and now it is over 30 degrees colder and we have ice and snow on the roads. And so it is a good thing that when I returned yesterday, I bought some more […]

Bridges

January 30th, 2013 · No Comments

I saw a reference to burned bridges in a post and then, for some ridiculous AmeliaJake reason, wondered, “Hey, maybe I should burn some bridges in front of me?” Choices of paths in life – forget the forks in the road, think more of every intersection being a five corners thingie – and at the […]

Bunker girl

January 28th, 2013 · No Comments

I spent around eight hours in the bunker moving around furniture and spraying surfaces with cleaner and using my swifter on the cobwebs. I changed light bulbs and filled two trash bags. The bunker was Mother’s creation and she always had to have a bar in her refuge – not for alcohol, for perching on […]

You all know how AmeliaJake can’t stand Joe Biden

January 26th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Der Bingle called me today to tell me there was a picture of Joe Biden on The Drudge Report; I have finally gotten around to checking in to see it. Oh Lordy, here he is: The picture is linked to a story on mental health . . . I may have nightmares tonight.

But today??

So, uh, the weather is going to warm up next week for a couple of days, but, uh, today it is too cold to do any Socmaonkeyjawea Indian fire dancing outside, let along grilling . . . so hmmmm. Der Bingle stayed in Dayton for work so here I am wondering if I should take […]

Well, will you look at this

January 26th, 2013 · No Comments

So, guess I’ll be loading up some goodies for a LaGrange County slumberparty with Shane. Oh, wait, Shane wants to discuss this . . .

Soon, I’ll cuddle back down

January 26th, 2013 · No Comments

Early, early last evening, I pulled an afghan up around my chin and lay back with my head resting on a wadded up throw. It was just a little “resty” period. I woke up sometime later, sort of dazed and thought, “Gee, I guess I’ll go to the bathroom.” Not as a tourist, you understand. […]

Remember the ‘jog my memory’ pictures?

January 24th, 2013 · No Comments

A couple of weeks ago – well, maybe three – I decided to go through a bunch of stuff and photograph the layers as I piled it onto shelves for future arranging/packing/whatever. It was a day of rediscovery. I was right about photographing things – I wouldn’t have remembered where they were. This evening I […]

The dog ate chili

January 22nd, 2013 · 2 Comments

Someone put a bowl of chili on the hearth and Shane at it; this may not be pleasant. It’s a cold night to be opening the door over and over again.
