Day 123: Just Another Day
Monday, May 02, 2011      7 comments

Wasn't that an old McCartney song? I could look it up, but I'm too lazy to do that, lol... Spent the morning making the house look unlived-in: beds all made up, dirty clothes put in the hamper, clean towels out on the towel racks, dirty dis... Read more
Day 121, Part 2: Whatta L-o-n-g Day...
Sunday, May 01, 2011      5 comments

Mostly it was a long day of blitzing: we blitzed the house, the yard, and just about all points in between. I stripped coverlets off beds and shook them to freshen them up, plus vacuumed and dusted the places I didn't yesterday. I'm pretty ... Read more
Day 121, Part 1: Happy May Day!
Sunday, May 01, 2011      9 comments

Here in England's green and pleasant land the origins of May Day festivities are lost in the mists of antiquity: they predate the Roman invasion and may even go back to the Stone Age. While the Brits don't have exclusive claim to celebrating the... Read more
Day 121: Productivity
Saturday, April 30, 2011      3 comments

...making up for lost time. Packed up a batch of soup into individual portions - now there's a dozen lunches in the freezer. Washed two loads of laundry, hung it outside for a change (not real warm, but sunny and with a light breeze - perfect la... Read more
Day 120: Done 'n' Dusted!
Friday, April 29, 2011      6 comments

I have been totally indulged today. I got up at 7, did the morning routine (well, hurried thru it, more like!) and was in the recliner at 7:55, ready to roll. They 'officially' finished at just about 4. I don't ordinarily watch much television, ... Read more
Day 119: Quickie...

Tomorrow is THE big day - well, I can't help it, I'm a royalist Anglophile. An Anglophilic royalist? Point being, I plan to park my own self in the living room and glue the remote to my hand. He is forbidden to disturb me until The Deed Is Done,... Read more
Day 118: News Day
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      10 comments

Well, not 'Newsday' as in the old NY newspaper - is that still published? First, had a couple different eBayers meeting me to collect their stuff in person, which saves me major hassle. I meet 'em at a local McDonald's - easy for them to fi... Read more
Day 117: In My Backyard
Tuesday, April 26, 2011      11 comments

This afternoon, after a cloudy morning, the sun finally came out. There are loads of rhododendrons and azaleas in our yard. Not all of them bloom at the same time, of course, but there are at least a good half-dozen that are 'in the process' rig... Read more
Day 116: No Blog Tonight!
Monday, April 25, 2011      9 comments

No, I mean it. I really mean it. You can quit looking, I'm serious. There IS NO BLOG. Now goodnight. Oh, what's that? Where's the picture? You're right. That proves this blog is over, doesn... Read more
Day 115: The Latest Meme
Sunday, April 24, 2011      9 comments

Got this one from DEBRA0818 - thanx, Deb! 1. Were you named after anyone? Nope. Mom said after a character on a soap opera (radio, lol); Dad said it was after a lake near their house. 2. When was the last time you cried? Oh, ... Read more
Day 114: Quiet Day
Saturday, April 23, 2011      5 comments

Mostly it's been a day of catching up. A couple of the eBay items finished, and I have a few more ready to list. Did some paperwork and got things ready for dinner tomorrow. We're having roast chicken, instead of ham. I love ham, but it don't lo... Read more
Day 113, Part 1: Farewell to Great Budworth
Friday, April 22, 2011      7 comments

I'll tell you, it is definitely warm here today - no cloud cover, hot sunshine, and the humidity is rising. Not generally my favorite when it comes to temps, but with the slowed metabolism (bleh) from the Lisinopril, I'm always cold, so - I'll t... Read more
Day 112, Part 2: ...to be continued...
Thursday, April 21, 2011      3 comments

I had hoped to get the rest of the pix posted, but alas, not to be. I'll do them tomorrow (Deo volente). I've been trying to do 30-40 minutes of mild cardio, in addition to the stretching / mild exercises for the 8-Week Diabetes Challenge.... Read more
Day 112, Part 1: We Continue!
Thursday, April 21, 2011      7 comments

I'm still always surprised to wander up to small parish churches virtually any old time and find the door unlocked. Most of them have a discreet sign welcoming visitors and asking to 'Please Close the Door Behind You.' That's not for any kind of... Read more
Day 111: Going to Great Budworth
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday was the serendipitous trip to Great Budworth - how's that for a name? Last fall we went to a place that has become a (relatively) national name as small villages go - Kibworth - and there are a lot of '--worth' place names. I suppose j... Read more
