Well, now I’ve gone and done it

August 21st, 2017 · No Comments

I decided to take a quick look through my mail before I actually did something productive – such as moving a cabinet out of the way in the basement so the plumber who came to day and muttered, “Ahhhhhh” could access a good place to cut through the floor tomorrow. I saw Book Bub’s suggestions […]

Ove, my kitchen drain is leaking into my basement

August 17th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I see that a book titled “A Man Called Ove” is a best-seller and has been recommended via a blog by three – now five – people. I looked over at Kindle Books to see a synopsis. This is the first paragraph: Read the New York Times bestseller that has taken the world by storm! […]

How many pitfalls are there anyway?

July 18th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Yes, I was up and actually functioning when . . . the dreaded summer cold struck, mixed in with a bit of intestinal distress. I have had to postpone my second cataract surgery and that was a bummer, but having a stuffed nose, a racking cough and a fever made a good case for it. […]

Good Heavens, I had to take a couple of tries to remember my password

Sitting in Fairborn, Ohio with my feet up on the coffee table and music playing on my iphone through a cute little speaker with lights that change, I venture into this space once more. God, there’s a lot of dusting to do and, drat, I see I’m going to have to clean out the cooler […]

Is it really me, AmeliaJake?

June 16th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I think so; I think I have emerged from the shadows. I may wander back in, but while I’m here, I guess I could at least say HI. Let’s see, Der Bingle was taken to the emergency room on April 19th with lights flashing and the siren going. I was three hours+ away and did […]

Bored but not wanting to exert

March 3rd, 2017 · 1 Comment

I feel like doing something, but I don’t want to do it alone and a lot of the work around here is overwhelming and tedious, especially if I happened to catch a snippet of a HGTV show where people are complaining because a perfectly fine house is – yes, here comes my oft-used word quote: […]

Hands in dishwater

February 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

That post title up there? Well, that’s all that is left of a post I wrote this morning, not because I goofed up and fed it to cyberspace, but because I looked at it and thought, Jeez, Louise, AJ, this is rotten writing, rambling, just muttering around . . . whatever. I erased it; I […]

The surprises that we allow

February 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Of course, a vague post title. Even I sighed. You do your best, cut the slack, hope for the best . . . and then it comes: the little announcement or action that all along you knew would come. It’s usually the little things that disappoint the most – the ones that indicate – in […]

Look at the sidebar on the left

Her birthday, not that today is the only day I think of Jody. I see that picture framed by where I sit; I think of Thomas Bickle everyday too – his light is still shining on the wide window sill of what was once the old north porch. You can see it better from the […]

Johnny Cash – what I didn’t know

January 29th, 2017 · 2 Comments

There are, I’m certain, a lot of things I don’t know about Johnny Cash. But last week, there were a lot more. That changed because I came into the living room, sat down and realized: Oh, my gosh, the remotes are here-not misplaced. So, I turned the TV on and there was the beginning of […]
