A HOT good afternoon to you, Sparkies! I'm in my aptly named sunroom with all the windows opened, a fan blowing on me and bare feet on a cold tile floor. I'd maybe like to be inside but DH has the TV on loud(swears he does not have a hearing pro... Read more

Moms. We are awesome multi-taskers as well as simply awesome. I got a big kick out of Alanis Morissette's appearance on Jimmy Fallon. She holds her daughter, answers her questions and bounces her all while belting out her latest beau... Read more
OJ's house is never boring
Thursday, July 30, 2020      12 comments

Yep, just a typical day in the OJ household. I got up early and took my shortened walk as "things" are feeling better today. I met two unusual boxers (as in dogs) being walked. The female was mostly black with white markings and the other all ... Read more

I've had a busy day. I'm feeling much better and shopped this morning at COSTCO. I knew what I needed and where it was so there was no lingering looking! I left my house at 10:20 and was home by 11:10. I'm only 6 miles away from the store...I di... Read more

I'll continue cooking tomatoes today as the one plant has given me little gems to big funny-formed fruits, all ripe within a few days. First batch has cooled in refrigerator overnight and my choices are to portion that batch or wait until the ne... Read more

Hot, high of 90 today. Hazy, looked like rain but lifted as it was fog. Humid, the weather site say 94%? No wonder I feel like I'm wearing a wet towel! My body seem to be reacting to the whole weather thing, too. My ring won't even... Read more

We had massive thunderstorms and torrential rain last night, again. The danged emergency alarm kept going off about floods so I had little sleep between 1 and 4. I am not in a flood zone but the canal 3 miles away frequently tops it's banks! ... Read more

It's too hot. Chewy is visiting and requires me to sit in my recliner so he can drape his head across my ankle. His hu-mom is in the pool. Vacuuming it. Housework with a twist. DH is sulking. His older daughter did something ... Read more
