Fall is coming to The Riley Street House in Kendallville

August 29th, 2015 · No Comments

It is still August, but we have had a fairly cool summer and people are already talking of fall. Standing out in the outdoors painting a fence does not particularly promote such thoughts, but kids going by in backpacks and tulip tree leaves falling keeps it tickling the back of my mind. While I was […]

Fence painting – but not a mural

August 28th, 2015 · No Comments

We have started painting zee fence. (Feeling a little Frenchie for a moment) and it is Pebble Grey.  My shorts now have Pebble Grey spots on them, but, hey, that’s okay since I had a bleach accident with them a year ago. It is always enlightening to realize how BIG a fence is that encloses […]

A Duggar prediction – based on pure speculation

August 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment

So, Josh Duggar has admitted himself to a long-term rehab center as a result of revelations about his past, and I guess, his right up until “The Site” was hacked, present. After the first go round, The Discovery Channel took “19 Kids and Counting” out of production. I got to wondering today if with the […]

Birthday present from the Icebats and fellow UDOs

August 27th, 2015 · No Comments

Der Bingle tells me that this gift took most of the Icebats’ allowance, and I want them to know I really appreciate it. This is my first birthday since Shane died; it’s been a heck of a year.

Sharking the Lagrange House

August 26th, 2015 · No Comments

I took the Shark vacuum up to Lagrange and vacuumed and vacuumed and vacuumed. You get such a feeling of accomplishment seeing the dirt come into the compartment and being easy to dump out. Then you start feeling tired. Not because the Shark is hard to use, but because you keep thinking, “Oh, I just […]

Monday morning . . . AGAIN

August 24th, 2015 · No Comments

I had weird and scary dreams last night, which I cannot remember. That is probably a good thing, unless a snatch comes back while I am driving and I lift my hands off the steering wheel, put them over my face and scream. Of course, I might do that if a Sugar Plum Fairy suddenly […]

Trying super lazy today

August 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

Two days ago, I announced I had decided to just not do some things; to let them go – things like laundry and weeds and washing dishes. And then I couldn’t take the pressure of “Just saying No” and finished all tasks. Yesterday, I sat around until 11:30 in the morning and then gave a […]

Letting emotions rule

August 21st, 2015 · 1 Comment

I went came back from an errand and decided to pull a few weeds and drag out a few branches. Then I thought, “Do I want to do this?” and the answer was a big, fat NO.  So I came inside and did a few dishes, then asked the same question with the same answer. […]

Long time . . . no write

August 21st, 2015 · No Comments

I knew I had wandered away from the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse; I just did not realize how long I’d been gone. The days are somewhat of a blur, but the screen door has slammed behind me again as I returned . . . only no one yelled “AmeliaJake” like they yelled “Norm” on […]
