Heavens to Betsey, where have I been?

October 30th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Today is the 30th? Really? How did this happen? I have no idea. Unless I was abducted, which is a possibility.  I am going to have to give this some thought and figure out a good reason that will sound believable.

A bird in the house

October 26th, 2014 · 2 Comments

I don’t know how, but a bird got into the house and this is our third try to get it out. I believe Summer is going to have to carry the cat in front of her and try to encourage the bird to skedaddle. We have opened doors and windows, but the bird can’t find […]

Morning after raker

October 24th, 2014 · No Comments

Last night I wrote that my legs tingled after four hours of raking; well, today, I believe the adjective would be aching, and that would include my arms. And, of course, there are still more leaves on the trees. AUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH.  I believe that was a primordial reaction. Other than that, I am warm and under […]

Raker

October 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

I am lying here with my legs tingling. Raking for four hours will do that to me. My face is coated with a layer of “leaf dust” and I am thinking about pulling a blankie over me and not moving one bit more than necessary. I picked up Shane’s ashes at the vet’s this afternoon […]

Amazon.com and a ladder and a 66-year-old lady

October 21st, 2014 · No Comments

I am not happy. The Deal of the Day on Amazon was Little Giant ladder; it was to last all day and there was no caveat about selling out. WELL, THAT WASN’T SO. I asked Der Bingle to look at it and when he did it had 15 hours left and then all of a […]

Life goes on

October 21st, 2014 · No Comments

I don’t know that it has to, life going on, that is, but it seems that time does. And something pokes at me and says, “Well, live that time.”  I guess I need to give it a shot –  you know, a big push for The Gipper. That sort of thing. UPDATE: Perhaps the saying […]

To Ohio and back

October 19th, 2014 · No Comments

I am tired. I went to Ohio, taking a couple of back roads just for the heck of it. I really did a non-diet week end with Hot Head Burritos and Cousin Vinny’s specialty pizzas. I came back and don’t feel as if I have much to say, so I’m going to let it be.

It is October 16th

October 16th, 2014 · No Comments

This is LZP’s birthday and the stretched out and fun-appreciating (maybe pranks) celebration I had planned was derailed by an extended “rainy day” period. But I was ready to go full steam last week-end – priority mail and all that. Then Shane got sick and died. A dog. I know that is what some would […]
