Thursday, April 04, 2013      10 comments

I don't want to jinx us here or anything, but spring may've begun... well, springing. At last. Son-of-Joe-the-Greenfinch* has returned to the bedroom window; when I got up this morning it was so daylight I didn't need to turn on any lights;... Read more

Did I not do a blog yesterday? I changed the page around, but I guess I must've forgotten to blog-a-pic as well. April Fool's on me, as it 'pears I lost a day--? At any rate, it's perhaps indicative that I'm doing my headless-chicken thing.... Read more

April Fish! "April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day occurs annually on April 1. The day is generally observed by playing a practical joke on a 'victim' who soon becomes known as an April Fool. This custom is thought to have started in France du... Read more

Day 501: Afternoon - Delight?
Saturday, March 30, 2013      8 comments

Well, if the morning brings a quickie, surely the afternoon version should be a delight. A-heh. Not much to write, by way of either inclination or time. How is it the weekends bring more to do than the weekdays? But such is the case. K... Read more

We talk in terms of NSVs - non-scale victories, achievements such as dropping a dress size or jogging our first half-marathon. I believe we don't allow ourselves to celebrate enough of these mini-achievements. Why mini? If the biggies ... Read more

The sun is shining, the sky is blue, even though it's still below freezing. Hey, I'll take what I can get. As Meatloaf sang, two out of three ain't bad. Just started a course of antibiotics for the semi-annual sinus infection. (If I've got ... Read more

It's not as though I haven't seen snow in March before - I remember at least one Easter Sunrise Service that was conducted during a snowfall (not a blizzard, but even so), and I seem to remember a major late-March snowstorm circa '93. But i... Read more

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      9 comments

It's a lesson I learn over and over that never seems to stick: do it now. Unlike yesterday when I sidetracked myself however many times, today I'll do the blog first, so I don't inadvertently forget it. Most of these blogs are a kind of ch... Read more

...are like the boxes to be ticked on forms: yep, that was today. Did this, did that, day is done. You know what Mondays are like. I'll bet I sat down here at least four times to do a blog, and got sidetracked each time. So instead of a mo... Read more
Day 495: The Morning Quickie
Sunday, March 24, 2013      8 comments

We've had massive computer / LAN problems over most of the last week, so my work is majorly behind - hence, a truly short blog, and virtually (pun intended) an entire day that will have to be devoted to catching up electronically. Not much exerc... Read more

At the risk of sounding like a weather report - day before yesterday, it turned bitter (as in, BITTER) cold, with highs reaching perhaps freezing. We had "light snow showers" most of yesterday and overnight: this morning I've woken up to an inc... Read more
