I did not get snow but it was 32 F when I got up. It's really going to take a lot to get me outside as I don't seem to be cold tolerant lately. It will pass and be warm enough to complain about heat soon. On the original reason I'm o... Read more
If April showers bring May showers what will May snows bring?
Friday, May 08, 2020      10 comments

I've been snowed upon in May and September when visiting mountainous regions but snow in New Jersey mid-May is such an oddity! I see flakes in the forecast and hope to witness the oddity. Thanks, climate change. I think. ... Read more
Small joys. Car repair.
Thursday, May 07, 2020      16 comments

I get a bit of freedom today as my new-to-me SUV gets a repair that should have been done upon purchase. I picked it up the day before the world closed down. It's taken time once the diagnosis of needing a new tail light was made and acquiring t... Read more

I got nothin' for today
Sunday, May 03, 2020      11 comments

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
Sidewalk challenges
Saturday, May 02, 2020      7 comments

These sidewalk challenge games/ courses have appeared around my development. Today I saw a young lady and her mother who held paper; I'm thinking instructions. When I asked her had she drawn the other ones I saw she said no. There must be some k... Read more
Spring has sprung

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
Happy May 1! I have challenged myself for the umpteenth time.
Friday, May 01, 2020      10 comments

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

Here's the squash enjoying the scenery, pushing up towards what light we have today. The tomatoes have beefed up their stems but not created more le... Read more

I stopped quarantine eating. Minimized my attendance in stores and I am giving leeway to those who don't quite "get it". I'm still chomping at the bit to get back into the gym but have made do with some things around the house to keep me mov... Read more

I knew exactly where to go. We drove to fairly closed mall which was on the edge of the u-turn the aircraft took to head to Philadelphia after flying over Trenton. Score! ... Read more
Bye, bye trees. Sorry birds.

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
