Laziness

June 30th, 2014 · No Comments

Today I am more lazy than usual, having things to do, but thinking I’ll just sit here instead. I am kind of stiff from climbing around on chairs, pulling (gasp) expired spices out of cabinets yesterday and then walking. We also cleaned drawers, which entailed my dumping all contents into a box and then sticking […]

The face with cleanser

June 29th, 2014 · No Comments

I did a repeat performance of walking in hot, humid weather after having applied a cleansing cream that foams when wet. Fortunately, it doesn’t seem to do that with sweat. It just mixes with the perspiration and gets down in my pores. I  think it makes me look slimy, but I don’t think about it […]

The impromptu party

June 28th, 2014 · No Comments

Last night, after Der Bingle arrived  – and Shane had his fairground trip, Summer decided it was time for a party. Tongue in cheek, she talked of quality bonding time with her grandparents, by which she meant watching a movie while she interjected “remarks”. Choosing a movie when the watchers are AmeliaJake, Der Bingle and […]

Spooling

June 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Soon I will have to make myself start winding cord on the weed eater spools. One was empty yesterday and the other was full and then, hello, the spool flew off and Cameron and I hunted for a long time for the actual spool and its cover in a large bed of myrtle. We found […]

A red pump, Coke things and Maxine at a nudist colony

Sometimes I get the feeling I need to look closer at the things I see everyday. This is here – at The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse. Really.

Because I’m talking to myself

June 25th, 2014 · No Comments

That’s why I’m here – because I’m talking to myself, in the sense of telling things to the air. I think I’ve been doing it about my entire life; I thought everyone did and maybe they do; I don’t know. But, once, over two decades ago an editor remarked about a column I was writing, […]

The getting of a cold

June 25th, 2014 · No Comments

I look normal (ignore the Guido-ized photo below) and I am still bopping around, but yesterday I was freezing at the nursing home, while hugging a sweatshirt close to me. I came home and sat in front of a space heater. I went to bed early and my ears hurt deep inside and my throat […]

No longer in Dayton

June 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

I am back in Kendallville; yesterday I was sitting on a balcony, being chauffeured around, treated to HHB and CV, placed in the comfortable corner of a leather sofa with an Apple remote and more episodes of House of Cards. As I pulled into the driveway, I spotted with freshened eyes CHORES to be done […]

Impulsive AmeliaJake

June 22nd, 2014 · 1 Comment

Yankee Candle had a 6 for $60 sale and since there is a store close to Der Bingle’s apartment I took him over to sniff candles. We walked by a kiosk that had free ear-piercing offered with purchase. Well, I had my ears pierced in the 60’s in a dorm at IU with ice and […]

Going to Fairborn (Cousin Vinny’s)

June 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

I’m making a quick trip with my husband down to his apartment – situated between Wright State University and Area B of the air force base – in Fairborn, Ohio. Cousin Vinny’s and Hot Head Burrito are close by, but, of course, I am paying attention to what I eat, but think I may have […]
