No, I am not dead

November 30th, 2014 · No Comments

I’m in Ohio; I’ve been having some side effects from Cipro; I’ve been doing other things. But I am not dead as of this typing and so that is not the reason for the long silence. I have been playing Words With Friends with someone, but that is not the reason either. There is no […]

Shutterfly

November 26th, 2014 · No Comments

I have purchased many gifts from Shutterfly, always waiting for their special deals of course. And, now, they are offerring me a free calendar, with the sale ending Friday. So I think I’ll talk it over with Der Bingle and pick out a picture or two for each month. The 2014 calendar was all about […]

Windy

November 25th, 2014 · No Comments

Yesterday, sitting in a car in a sparsely-filled parking lot was like a kiddie theme park ride. The car rocked as it was buffeted by winds gusting around 50 mph. Watching the canvas canopy over the walkway into the building was almost entertaining – Is it going to go? Whoa! Did you see that? However, […]

A styrofoam ball, sequins and pins

November 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

That title up there sums up my day. Yesterday I made a comfy thing out of two $3 WalMart fleece throws and some fiberfill. It didn’t turn out half bad. But today, today I had to get in the Christmas/Holiday spirit by “doing.” Yes, I again enjoyed the zoning out work of crafting something, but […]

Every now and then I post

November 21st, 2014 · No Comments

I think I once wrote that I ebb and flow with some things. I guess that is true here. Today has been a hard day, but it has been a day – and I often forget a lot of people would be happy with that. I mean it has not been a day with a […]

It’s supposed to warm up this weekend

November 20th, 2014 · 1 Comment

The first really cold snap takes you back a bit; this time around the sudden drop in temperature gave us a big push. It didn’t just get cold, it got cold with a dry, biting wind. And maybe I will write with more warmth later . . . Oh, dear, it’s late and I froze […]

Feels like -8

November 18th, 2014 · No Comments

Are you kidding me? It is 9 degrees outside and feels like minus 8? Well, yes I thought the diet cola in the vestibule was a little almost slushy, but, my gosh, I guess it’s time to start fires . . . in the fireplaces. Going to try to acclimate.

One thing and another

November 17th, 2014 · No Comments

I’m been to Ohio and back; I’ve been to the mall. I’ve played Words with Friends and started watching a Norwegian series from Netflix – Lilyhammer. I’ve looked through 72 picture albums to possibly get the stuff to take advantage of a Shutterfly office. I could get more detailed, but I’d bore you.

Which song matches my mood

November 13th, 2014 · No Comments

I had my hair trimmed today; it is getting grayer. I am wearing a large cardigan made of acrylic and wool; it used to be I could only wear wool when it was absolutely freezing. I can’t say that I’ve done much today, other than recover from the second and last raking of the season […]

Veteran’s Day

November 11th, 2014 · No Comments

He was born November 12, 1918 and his middle name was Pershing. believe grandmother had the Spanish Flu when he was born. I do remember people saying she […]
