Day 150: TOTALLY Wasted Day, lol...
Sunday, May 29, 2011      7 comments

I didn't do anything beyond what needs to be done every day (meals, dishes - the basics). This is what I call a relaxing weekend. I used the race as 'background music' and played with my phone, read part of a book, and worked on a sudoku. A... Read more
Day 148: This 'n' That
Saturday, May 28, 2011      4 comments

I bought a couple pints of strawberries - local ones have started coming in - and I was in the kitchen hulling them for supper. I realized I was looking at my grandmother's hands. She was 40 when I was born, so when she was my age - 58 - I was 1... Read more
Day 147: Whadda day...
Friday, May 27, 2011      9 comments

I must be getting old (cue the lafftrack): getting up and moving earlier than usual seems to have really tired me out. Himself was not only no better this morning, but his neck was even more painful, so he (finally) decided it would be wise... Read more
Day 147: *yawn*
Thursday, May 26, 2011      7 comments

That sort of sums it up. I don't feel as tho I've done all that much today, but the usual housework really took the sap out of me, and the grocery trip was a little more involved than the early-in-the-week one, so... mebbe that's why. I slept be... Read more
Day 146: Out More Than In - of the Office, That Is...
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      6 comments

Himself has done something to his neck. I think he might've just slept on it wrong, but it's been a couple days and isn't getting better. It might even be getting marginally worse. Will he listen to me and go see a doctor? No. He will not. I hat... Read more
Day 145, Part 3: Conclusion
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      5 comments

Over the weekend I realized my new phone* was set to go to voicemail after three unanswered rings. It takes me at least five to fumble it out of pocket or purse, so I started searching thru the settings and tools and what-have-you to find a plac... Read more
Day 145: Our Backyard
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      10 comments

As promised! And while I think of it, the sun has (kind of) come out, but the temps are still in the fifties and the wind is practically ferocious - really blustery, with some pretty strong gusts. It crossed my mind to go over to one of the loca... Read more
Day 145, Part 1: Addendum
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      8 comments

Of course I had to go over to Ancestry and double-check, and yes, it was Great-Great-Grandma Nancy and GG-Grandpa George. The family story stands (well, insofar as that whole generation, the generation after, and the one after them are all gone ... Read more
Day 144: Did I Ever--
Monday, May 23, 2011      6 comments

--tell you all about my Great-Great (I think it was two greats, not just one) Grandmother Nancy? She and Grampa George bought a farm not long before they got married. (Remind me sometime to tell you the little story about their wedding day.... Read more
Day 143: Back to Normal
Sunday, May 22, 2011      5 comments

Instead of short'n'sassy, I think this one rates as short'n'boring, lol... Took a brief walk this morning between the showers, and I got a couple pictures of two of my favorites rhododendrons. I'll try to get them downloaded and posted tomo... Read more
Day 142: Mere Trifles...
Saturday, May 21, 2011      7 comments

As promised: It was all composed from 'cheats,' as Delia Smith calls them - store-bought jelly roll (here known as 'Swiss roll,' but I would've said 'roulade' - oohh,... Read more
Day 141: Short 'n' Sweet
Friday, May 20, 2011      9 comments

Or is that 'short 'n' sassy'? 'Sweet 'n' sassy'? Beats me. We'll leave it as it is. Didn't get the pix downloaded yet, but I will. The trifle went over a treat (as they say); there's a smidge left for tomorrow. I didn't have so much as a ta... Read more
Day 140: Done 'n' Dusted
Thursday, May 19, 2011      7 comments

Even got a wonderful trifle (very English!) made for dessert - I'll post pix after the weekend. I've only made one before and the Brits were, well, polite but allowed as how it wasn't quite a 'real' trifle, whatever that means, lol. Himself says... Read more
Day 139: Ahead 'n' Behind
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      6 comments

I'm ahead on some things (for once): I've got the menu done for the weekend, plus the grocery list, so tomorrow should be a short trip, even tho I'm getting more than usual. I've got the guest room all clean - bed stripped, laundry washed, clean... Read more
Day 138: Jus' a Quickie...
Tuesday, May 17, 2011      4 comments

So, company for supper, some Beatleband en masse - they're off. I'll watch a little television, read another chapter in my current book, then call it a day. You know what ol' Sam Pepys used to say - 'And so to bed.' Goodnight, Sparklers, wh... Read more
