The intrepid traveling grandparents. My DH, his brother and wife traveled to Hawaii a few years back and had a blast. We've picked Olympic National Park for our next venture. I found 3 homes to rent. One on a river where salmon should be sp... Read more
Feeling Classical; literature, that is.

My Wonderland blog had me thinking of the books I've read that turned into movies. There have been a lot and I do prefer the written word. Be forewarned most of my books, and movies are from a few years ago. Andromeda Strain-like the b... Read more
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall.

Alice would say,this get curiouser and curiouser! I followed the rabbit down the hole and ran into every character in Wonderland. Nothing is as it seems. Lewis Carroll's imaginations' got nothing on my reality. Now I'm getting hit wit... Read more
Hmmm is my downfall related to non-tracking?
Tuesday, May 27, 2014      7 comments

One day I didn't have time. The next I told myself, "You're having the same things." One day led to another and I stopped using the tracker. I can't remember why I really "stopped" Yikes! I haven't tracked any food since the second week o... Read more

Another Memorial Day. I used to call Dad and tease him that today meant I should remember to call him; my favorite veteran. Today I'll simply remember him. My family was full of military service people. Most of my uncles, one of my aun... Read more
Throwing the lemons back.

My intention was to move the stones, play with grand kids and do some cooking. Sure. DD's migraine made her cry "Uncle" and she asked if I could take her to the hospital. Nothing unusual; she's had these since she was 10. Now she's 31.... Read more
Calm weather, lots to do.

We escaped the storm; it was pretty neat watching TWC pictures of DD's area turn black with rain and how much lightening was around. Haven't spoken to her yet to find out how she fared. Probably slept through it. Things should dry up for th... Read more

Thunderstorms. I'm getting tired of listening to the Weather Channel beeping and I'm not even at ground zero! Mega lightening strikes, flash flood warnings and hail. I can take 2 of 3, the hail makes me nervous as I have skylights. Hail is n... Read more

Yikes! Now I have to run home from work tomorrow for the parts delivery, run back to work then run home again to dig more stones. I enlisted DD, SIL and even GS to help move the stones on Saturday. GS will probably eat the rocks. He's into g... Read more

Anticipatory? Almost over? I'm done with this week already. I'd like to have 2-3 days to get my house in order, it's been badly neglected. No dust bunnies but we've both been overworked and there's a pile of mail here, a pair of shoes ... Read more
Trying the MT thing and agreeing with DOGLADY13

It must be that mojo thing I keep falling back on. I ramped it up in January. We were all so "all about being mentally tough". Then when the going got tough, the tough got up and sauntered out the door. I haven't been able to get that re-s... Read more

"Got up Got outta bed Dragged a comb across my head. Found my way downstairs and had a cup..." Ah, Beatles in the morning. I'll be singing that one all day. I'm watching what I eat and not having big fits. I've had a few mall vi... Read more
Random Sunday blog. Lots of exercise in the future.

Physical and mental exercise. Does anyone else feel creeped out when the add pops up of Donald Duck preparing to chow down on a poultry leg? Thanks to WATERMELLEN, I now have to run to the store to get eggplant and lentils. Never,... Read more

Smoke alarms with voice messages are great until the battery needs changed at 4am! Letting the darned thing hang by it's wires must have juggled the battery, praise be, and once DH gets moving...he can change it. I couldn't get the battery com... Read more
