We had a quiet Thanksgiving Day. El Esposo worked in the morning. I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with the dogs while I knit. I made my first Thanksgiving Day meal. I've hated this holiday for a very long time, as I don't believe that we should be giving... Continue reading

Our pumpkin pie from Community Servings is here - ours was baked by the Cambridge location of Jasper White's Summer Shack. It looks and smell so yummy that it's going to be hard to wait until tomorrow to eat it. I think the youngest child may even try this pie,... Continue reading

Today's topic is Ten Things You Are Thankful For Right Now. Rather than generic things like health, I'm going to try to be more specific and talk about things that I am thankful for since last year at this time. 1. I'm so pleased that we had a foster failure... Continue reading

There will be precious little blogging today because we are having a dog party tonight. Someone is turning two. That's her as a puppy. She was born into rescue, then surrendered back when she was a little over a year old, and now she's ours forever. Continue reading

Another Sunday, another trip to the vet with our foster dog. It looks like he lost some weight over the past week, likely due to being on some pretty serious de-wormers. He had more blood drawn, and that's being sent out for more testing to see if that will help... Continue reading

The youngest had an art workshop in Lawrence today, so when we went to pick him up, we had a little wander by the movie set to see what was up. The second unit of the Ben Affleck directed movie Live By Night (based on the novel by Dennis Lehane)... Continue reading

I'm hitting the wall. I've barely had time to post this week, never mind read other blog posts. I keep reading posts on Facebook that say something about how we all have the same number of hours in a day that Einstein and Mother Teresa and other important people had.... Continue reading

I saw this the other day and I have to admit, I was a little puzzled. The weather the sign was referring to was rain. Somehow, it just doesn't seem right that an event honoring veterans would be cancelled due to rain. After all, veterans withstood a lot more than... Continue reading

It's that time of year. This week I am observing the anniversaries of the deaths of both of my grandfathers. I lost the first 34 years ago and the second 27 years ago. We've had some kind of crappy Thanksgivings in my family. Also, one of my grandfathers, his brother,... Continue reading

This is a really tough one, because there's so little hanging out that gets done any more. But, here are the ten places that I spend most of my hanging out time (other than work). 1. Home, of course. 2. In my car in a parking lot, where the princess... Continue reading

As I said yesterday, we didn't eat those jalapeño cream cheese rolls during yesterday's football game. The Patriots game started at 4:25 pm, so I had dinner planned for halftime, and the football gods were with us. Not only did halftime happen exactly when dinner was ready, the Patriots won...

Today has been a long day, and it's not even 4:00 yet. El Esposo had an early morning soccer game that was over an hour away, and I had a 90 minute drive to take the foster dog to a vet that works with the rescue organization that has him.... Continue reading

I have lots of thoughts, all jumbled up, but no words to really express what I'm feeling about what happened over the past week - Mizzou, Beirut, Paris, et al - so I have a few photos from the chapel at the US Air Force Academy from this summer. I... Continue reading

I'm not a huge Ben Affleck fan, but I have a special interest in his latest film, Live By Night. It's based on the Dennis Lehane novel, and you all know I'm a Dennis Lehane fan. Even more special, the movie is shooting in Lawrence, Massachusetts for a couple of... Continue reading

I was fortunate to have yesterday off from work. The kids were off from school. El Esposo had to work at both of his jobs. The weather was pretty crappy. So, we didn't get up to anything super special, but it was a nice day to kick back and relax.... Continue reading

My great-grandfather was in France on Armistice Day, serving as a blacksmith in the US Army. His future bride was laying her mother to rest - the bells rang for the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month as my great-great grandmother's casket was being removed from... Continue reading

This is a tough one, because I'm not really a gambler, and I'm not prone to exuberant displays of excitement in public. I don't even know whether I've made ten casino trips. But here's a list of things I've noticed when I have gone to visit casinos or other gambling... Continue reading

I'm still breathing the fumes from all the changes that happened in my life last month. I knew it was going to be an insane month, so I decided that I was going to just roll with things. October was not the month to beat myself up about not eating... Continue reading

My name is Susan and I have many, many UFO's. There isn't really a support group for that, is there? Sure, there's Ravelry, but that rather inspires more stash acquisition and more startitis. Well, I am not ashamed, just like Alison Hendrix, subtitled here in Portuguese, lol! So, here in... Continue reading

I mentioned a while ago that I was interested in a better way to keep track of everything I need to do at home and at work, and that I had recently discovered that there were women who call themselves Planner Girls who take this to a whole other level.... Continue reading

I haven't talked about the dogs in a long time. The last time I remember blogging about them was when one of my original Labradorable labs died in spring 2014. There he is, enjoying a little sunbathing on an early spring day in 2014. Most of the photos I have... Continue reading

Today's prompt is a place I would live, but have never visited. That's kind of a tough one, because I've visited a lot of places where I would like to live. So maybe I will leave that one alone and move on to something that has been vexing me for... Continue reading

It all depends on what you think is interesting - hopefully these 10 things are interesting facts. 1. I have moons on all of my fingernails, which apparently is unusual. 2. Although I write right handed, I do lots of things left handed. I don't really have a dominant hand.... Continue reading

Fortunately, the Ten on Tuesday prompt for today was way beyond my abilities, so you get the sordid (or possibly romantic) stuff instead. I'm sure my first kiss was something fairly innocent with a boy from school, and I don't remember the first time I kissed the first boy I... Continue reading

Today's assignment is my earliest memory, and I've got that one down. It was my second birthday party. My mom was pregnant with my brother, and I had a cake with marshmallow flowers on it. What I remember most was being excited that people were coming over, waiting and waiting... Continue reading
