The sky is partly sunny and it's 75. Cleaned a bit, cooked a bit and went for a ride. Did a drive-by to see DH's sister's new car. Still trying to rise above as we've lost yet another. It's not pleasant living in these here parts at th... Read more

Magnolias seem to do well in New Jersey. I've associated them with the southern states but remember them in my childhood outside stately homes and next to holly trees, another NJ staple. This is growing in my neighbor's yard ... Read more

Today I've challenged myself on a few things. Yeah, you've heard that before! New day, new month, renewed hope and faith in the world. Blah, blah blah. I prodded DH to get on the scale yesterday. He's got extra chin he hasn't had before ... Read more

in my excitement to show my baby sprouting garden, I neglected to mention my "great" stimulation of the economy. It was a very sad and odd day to boot. We had planted our Christmas trees since 1979 having brought our first tree to our curren... Read more
Normalizing life and day 3 of sprouting
Monday, April 27, 2020      12 comments

I realized yesterday that the day felt "normal". It was rainy and a bit gloomy outside so I crocheted for a while and played around with ancestors on the computer. I did not visit the kitchen out of boredom. I think I've plateaued my angst. W... Read more

I bought myself a jigsaw puzzle for Christmas last year. I've never bought one so must have had a premonition! Haha, I said, this should be easy. I'll be busy for a while! It's a cartoonish United States National Parks puzzle. ... Read more
