Certain dates and times seem to be made for starting over. Whatever it is that needs to begin again, our calendar and culture give us more encouragement at times like this: the beginning of a new year. Of course, new years only come, well, once a year. So we have... Continue reading

Middle of May. I am behind on Ancestry dot com; I am behind in slogging out my studio, I am behind in my housekeeping, and I am behind in the paperwork Larry wants me to take care of. I am behind in organizing my photos, I am behind in work... Continue reading

One day I will get brave enough to tell my family about this blog. Not yet though. I want to learn how to do the cool blog things like put in a video (of Larry and me talking, for instance) or even a picture. I think I can learn it.... Continue reading

Well, it seems there are things one should pay attention to when blogging. Such as, click the Publish button when you are done, rather than clicking on something else that attracts your attention. Why? Because you lose your post. So all the brilliant observations and clever repartee that I had just written are now gone and you are stuck with this: Tomorrow and Saturday are going to be busy babysitting days, so today I am not going to do much but feed the hungry who live in my house, and read drivel. I mean fiction. Not lit-er-a-ture (emphasis on the first syllable) science, social commentary or biographies. Nope, I am reading wonderful, comfortable Jan Karon today. And I am still in my jammies and I am going back to my warm bed to read and drink herbal tea because by Saturday night I will be exhausted and I am hoping I can stock pile some energy. Tho feeding the hungry here takes some time, as the dogs have now decided they really do want egg and peanutbutter sauce on their kibble. (Xyla will eat when I do this, and she is too thin. Zoe just thinks she has found food heaven, as she is too fat. So I don't give her as much food) Mr. P will probably be perfectly happy eating cereal and ice cream all day. So, other than washing laundry and folding laundry, and feeding the above mentioned eaters, I will accomplish little, but rest well. So don't drop in to visit me, OK? Don't call me either. You know how much I hate talking on the phone. I am going to click on the publish button now... Continue reading

For the next two days I will have a marathon of babysitting and grandchild care (for the ones who are no longer babies and don't like the term "babysitting" when it refers to them. So today, I am not doing much but general home and self care. Kind of trying to save up some energy for the coming onslaught. Not that I don't like it. Heck, I quit my job so I could do this. I just know I am going to be tired. Very tired. Verry Verrrrry tired by the time Saturday night comes around. So besides feeding the dogs, the guinea pig and the goldfish, and tidying up after mr. p, and folding laundry, I am going to read books(not self improvement, political or social thought, history or literature. Just story books. And not Wuthering Heights. I managed to avoid that particular book throughout my school years but for some reason I decided to read it now. Can't say I like any of the people in the book, but it is an important book in the canon of literature, so I am reading it. But not today. Today I am reading a Jan Karon book, and also "I am number four" ... and the funnies in the paper, but not the doom and gloom and political ramblings and all that foolishness. Nope. Today I am resting. So there. Continue reading

This is a blog project. Since I don't know what I am doing, this post is not going to be very enlightening. Here I am stumbling around in the blogosphere with only the faint idea that I might share some stuff with some people I love. This year is going... Continue reading
