Over on the WeBlog team a member asked if any of us had ever stated 'Oh, I only lost one pound'? As if it's a sign of failure, rather than an accomplishment.
I don't think I've done that - Lord only knows, I'm down to counting every tenth o... Read more
That's the best word for how I'm feeling this evening: restless.
I did Wednesday chores early today so we could meet up with some friends after lunch and go window shopping (us girls) and trial-run new electronic toys (those guys). I'm not ... Read more

Please excuse the shakiness of the clip; this was not at all the blog I intended to post.
I am not an emotional person - I don't cry easily, and good friends, even lifelong friends, and most family members can probably count on one hand the... Read more
Time getting away from me as it does (you already know this about me, doncha?) I thought I might try a two-birds-one-stone approach today.
I don't often get a chance to respond to comments on blogs - I used to be pretty good about it, but w... Read more
I don't want to post this blog now, as opposed to just before bedtime, but needs must. We are having major connection problems; the server people say it's our phone line. Our landline is working fine, and the phone people say it's either the ser... Read more
A while back, we had a hard rainstorm early one morning. My computer faces a window, and when I glanced up right over my monitor was a rainbow.
We're coming off a dry spell - as Faithful Readers know, since we were making hay while the sun ... Read more
Actually, I'm not sure there are any subjects at all. It drizzled most of this morning, but cleared up around lunchtime (I say 'cleared up,' but that just means the drizzle stopped and occasionally I could see patches of blue sky). After lunch I... Read more
I come from a long line of dairy farmers - certainly by 1840 they were on the farm that my grandparents had up until 1960. My father eschewed cows, choosing instead to raise pigs.
(Go ahead, have your little jokes. You won't think of any I ... Read more
There's an evil little voice* that lives inside my head.
[Okay, maybe there's several little voices, but for today we're just dealing with one. The others will have to wait.]
Like an insidious demon perched on my shoulder, it constantl... Read more
Not necessarily in that order.
I spent half of today thinking it was the weekend. Dunno if I thought it was last weekend and I just haven't caught up yet, or if I'm jumping the gun to next weekend. Weird.
First, I meant to take a coupl... Read more
It being Monday, it was grocery day. Then I spent an hour or so working on cleaning the upholstered furniture in the LR - which must've worked pretty well, as Himself noticed.
After lunch it was back out to the yard - not so much that 'show... Read more
Yesterday and today were both yardwork days - we spent virtually the entire time outside, pruning, removing, replanting, raking, sweeping - you name it.
I wish I had thought to take more 'before' pictures, but alas, it didn't occur to me un... Read more
Just a short update - thank you one and all for the support and suggestions. I got out the earplugs and they did the trick. The thumping bass and loud vibrations (and what sounded to be terribly offkey singing - maybe they had karaoke going) wer... Read more
