Thanksgiving evening

November 28th, 2013 · 1 Comment

So I have come back here on a quiet Thanksgiving night; I am feeling better and we are having the Turkey Thanksgiving on Saturday. I imagine it won’t be a sit down dinner – more of a buffet with turkey and a few “tasties”. I would guess this is a year of a transitional holiday […]

Well, this worked out

November 25th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Because I have been under the weather and on the sofa, I have done nothing. I often do nothing, but this time there has been a legitimate reason . . . and since my stomach is still a little unsettled after a bit of food, I imagine I will come to a “legitimate” decision about […]

Strands of Purls – Etsy Shop

November 25th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Although I once vowed to use informative post titles, I must have been lying, because I almost never do. Today, however, I am making it real clear, because today, I am introducing an Etsy Shop, where you can get the softest, most comfortable knit things to order. I know because I have some. Remember this […]

Part way back from dead

November 23rd, 2013 · 3 Comments

I was laid low by the stomach flu yesterday and earlier today – about the first time in decades it has hit me so hard. Eyeballs still hurt. I think I’m climbing out of it, but I’m going to take my time. Gator Aid staying down – for now.

This is NOT a mommy blog BUT

November 21st, 2013 · 1 Comment

A lot of mommy blogs admit poop is going to be discussed. I’ve mentioned diarrhea a couple of times, but I’m not usually a poop-talker. I am going to do just that, however, for this one short post. I usually get a cherry (red) icee when I head over to the nursing home because the […]

Not a usual occurrence

November 20th, 2013 · No Comments

You have to give and take when you read a lot of books, especially now that more writers are able to make their work available on the Internet. I have really enjoyed the storytelling ability of some authors and then grinned an an ending that, if visualized, would look like a present wrapped by a […]

This is the 19th?

November 19th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Well, I guess I ran as slowly as my internet and Sprint service following the wave of storms that came through on Sunday. I think I may also be running around in circles, feeling overwhelmed at the chores I have to do. I have to shake my head at my brain because while I was […]

Rain – the wet kind

November 17th, 2013 · 1 Comment

I just deleted a paragraph because as I was typing the thought occurred that quite possibly my brain had gone missing in the night. So I am going to push “Save Draft” and try again later. *** It isn’t that much later but I am bored. I am bored and my leg muscles ache, maybe […]

Rotisserie

November 16th, 2013 · No Comments

My mother had a Ronco Rotisserie and I found it stashed down in the furnace room. Now, this is something to do with cooking that I like; I just thought it would be fun to resurrect the rotisserie. I scrubbed it all up and fooled around getting the spit mechanism to come apart and watched […]

No country for old lady kooks . . .

November 15th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Tonight I will get the alert that there is a text on my phone; it will be from Der Bingle and ask “Home?” Tonight I will text back: “Nursing home” and so he will call later. He will ask about my day and I will probably say “okay” or “fine” and go onto something else. […]
