It's not as bad as predicted; we probably will have less than 5 inches although I know 20 miles to the east there's 8 on the ground. I must live in the sweet spot today! Slow and steady today and no messing in the kitchen. As requested by... Read more

Cold #2 for this winter season which really hasn't been winter. My mom used to say the reason we all get sick is because it hasn't been cold enough to freeze the spit on the ground! Leave it to my mom to be gross. I picked at food which probab... Read more

THAT is what the physical therapist said. Argh. I have new exercises for those parts that have been ignored. Maybe since we've stopped trail hiking and boulder climbing I've had some muscles take a dive which might be the cause of my knee w... Read more
Sometimes it's time. Gabriel.

I had announced months ago he had been on the brink but darned if he didn't perk up multiple times. Gabe finally lost the battle today. The week before his 11th birthday last May, the son of one of our neighborhood kids suffered a ruptured ... Read more

I've entered meals and exercises as routine, given up and entered again. All after the fact. My next experiment is intense planning, something I admit I've not done. I go to the store, see what I like then make a big batch to last days. I'm... Read more

This will hurt tomorrow. My lovely therapist evaluated my wonky knees and had me do some new-to-me exercises as clearly I have muscles that I don't use correctly. My thighs hurt. My butt's gonna burn! ... Read more
Too much- food and computers
Thursday, January 26, 2017      10 comments

I spent the night with a cement block in my belly from eating what wasn't too bad to my eyes when I ordered it until I realized my home cooking takes the stuffing out of meals and fills it with veggies and light meats. I splurged and got the ver... Read more

39 years ago there was 28 inches of snow on the ground. The world in our small metropolis had shut down and we both worked the day and night before. Me in the hospital covering the shifts of about 10 people, him working with agencies to get peop... Read more

This new computer stuff is time consuming!
Thursday, January 19, 2017      11 comments

On one hand, I'm enjoying a cool lap, an extremely long-lived battery and wow, a touch screen if I want to use it. The keyboard is a bit "old eye" friendly. Copying and renewing my desktop, favorites and restoring programs? Not so much. ... Read more

The motherboard on my current laptop is sketchy at best. Occasionally the whole thing blanks off and the lonely blinking light on my "caps lock" key tells me I'm in trouble. I decided to spring for a new, solid state laptop which should keep m... Read more
