More like "...and now, back to our regularly scheduled program" - yesterday's MotD and notes from all and sundry was such a pleasant surprise. It was fun to hear from so many people - I forget sometimes just how large the Spark community is! ... Read more

Another day when the blog will be - quick, that is. Groceries (what, again? yepper, again) plus another house viewing (I'm discouraged, but that's not important right now) plus a short-list of gotta-do's, like paying some bills, sending a couple... Read more

"The smell of coffee cooking was a reason for growing up, because children were never allowed to have it and nothing haunted the nostrils all the way out to the barn as did the aroma of boiling coffee." --Edna Lewis, 'The Taste of Co... Read more

If I could find a good way to organize the files on my computer, I'd really have something... or at least be able to find things. Maybe. The thing is, sorting computer files means sitting. And I dislike using my sitting time (of which there... Read more

And now, finally, maybe, I'm back on track - at least insofar as blogs go. I wasn't kidding about the quickie part: grocery day, laundry day, more spring-cleaning. I got up with the sun and actually have some energy (!) so I figure I'd bes... Read more
Day 488: An Evening Quickie

Maybe I should just title it "An Evening Picture," as that's about what it'll come down to. Probably lucky to manage that much of a post - I missed yesterday altogether. It's been a crazy couple of days, with 30 hours' worth of stuff cramme... Read more

Just keeping my hand in, plus providing you with a brief update. Himself is about 90% (I would say), with just a touch of occasional weakness. He's taking it easy, and we're eating fairly light, bland meals, so I think he's just about recov... Read more

...how we went from 484 to 445 to 486. Rest assured, 486 is on track. I think. Or at least we're gonna call it "Day 486," and just leave it at that. Whatta couple of days! For Christmas the kids gave us a two-day break at a spa-resort-... Read more

...and do I mean quick! I almost forgot, and I'm in the midst of - stuff, lol. No pix, no links, no nothin'. Just keeping up with the 2013 resolution. Or at least one of 'em. Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are--! ... Read more

What constitutes a market town? Say what you will about Wikipedia (and more than once I've taken issue with an entry), it's a convenient source for basic information. They have this to say about "market town": The English monarchy crea... Read more

Yesterday's blog got me started on local photos. I've blogged about Lymm before, together with pictures and whatnot, but it's been a while since I last took you on a tour. This one'll be brief, as there's much to do - wasn't it Pepys who us... Read more

I came across a photograph that brought to mind one I'd taken. We live a few steps, almost literally, from the canal that runs through our village. Compare these: ... Read more

I used to live for the weekends - it doesn't seem all that long ago, but I guess it was. When I was in my teens, weekends meant plenty of time to socialize with friends while not having the nuisance of classes or studying in the way. W... Read more
