Combo: Meet Bear and My Journey; meet all my grandkids along the way

Thursday, January 08, 2015      17 comments

(permission granted) :) Bear came to live with MY KIDS a little over 30 years ago. By '93 they were all out on their own and the house was quiet. For a year or two anyway. Then the grandkids started coming! Read more

This is certainly not the blog I had planned to start the new year; but I promise it's more fun. I will do a journey review blog later in the month; it's bouncing around in my head and won't settle down. In the meantime . . .That little g... Read more

Sunday, December 21, 2014      19 comments

Smiles, I didn't pose them. For once Sugar didn't let Xena have the bed, she squeezed on and pushed Xena's butt over. They stayed until I went upstairs and got my camera... Read more

Afterthoughts of a 9 Year Maintainer:

Tuesday, October 14, 2014      12 comments

Ever notice how you can't do just "one thing". Action, seems to trigger more action. That's why 10 minute streaks work so well; mine turn into at least 20! I want to thank all of you that responded to my Thoughts of a 9 Year Maintainer bl... Read more

Thoughts of a 9 year Maintainer

Sunday, October 05, 2014      22 comments

This blog was prompted by a call from my brother this morning; updating me on his health challenges. He needs heart surgery and it keeps getting postponed in large part because of his weight. He has lost about 100 pounds and told me what he w... Read more

Sugar gets her last haircut of the season:

Saturday, September 20, 2014      20 comments

I have a recent picture for "before". Sugar's been looking pretty shaggy and I wanted to give her one more good grooming and short haircut (sorta) before we lost the warm weather. Today was the first time I used electric clippers on her and... Read more

Kitchen P.S. for you faithful friends :)

Sunday, September 14, 2014      14 comments

I am enjoying my house and my kitchen more; it's easier to keep clean because it looks nice. Hard to be motivated to clean; when the result just emphasizes other flaws. Not an excuse, just is what it is. I finally got the tools put away an... Read more

KITCHEN-just "sprucing up"

Saturday, September 13, 2014      14 comments

Not a remodel, not even redecorating, more just sprucing up; yet some of my friends still want to see what I'm doing in the kitchen. Half a kitchen that is. Work is done, tools are put away and I'm done with house projects until after the holi... Read more

Summer Projects = Fitness Minutes

Tuesday, September 09, 2014      18 comments

All fitness minutes aren't earned in the gym or strictly fitness activities. I've had quite a workout working on my house this summer! Dear Son has been off work this summer and helping me get some long overdue things done to my house. (Ci... Read more

My garden is truly a gift! Beauty, food and exercise abound. All summer I've been picking peppers as needed. Today I decided to harvest and freeze what was on my two plants. Read more

A Rare August Garden Morning

Tuesday, August 26, 2014      15 comments

I kid you not; it was hot/hot/hot! But the humidity had dropped and I really needed to tackle some overgrowth from all the rain we've been having. Usually the garden is burnt out by now. Still, I needed something to lighten the chore. Camer... Read more
