Household projects

Friday, November 02, 2012      1 comments

I have several continuing clean-up projects planned. Mostly I just need motivation. However, housework is one of the biggest sources of calorie-burning in my life, so I really do need to dredge up some motivation from somewhere. First is ... Read more

Halloween post mortem

Thursday, November 01, 2012      1 comments

I had a very nice Halloween this year. Although my son wasn't home for me to take trick-or-treating (which is a HUGE amount of walking and great exercise!), I got to give out candy, which I really enjoy. I admit, though, that I have a pr... Read more

Halloween

Tuesday, October 30, 2012      2 comments

I thought I had Halloween solved - since my older kids are away at college, I would have to take my youngest trick-or-treating; thus, no one would be home to give out candy...thus, I wouldn't need to buy any. However, it turns out he will be tr... Read more

Money woes and joys

Thursday, October 25, 2012      1 comments

Sometimes things just fall my way, in what I could call coincidences, but which sometimes seem to be a bit more than coincidental. Case in point: this month has been one of several lately in which there has been way, way more month than mo... Read more

Customer Appreciation and pets

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      0 comments

My son and I had a very nice time at Customer Appreciation Day at my bank. I never heard of a bank doing such a thing...they closed off the parking lot, grilled hot dogs, brats, etc., and gave them away together with free beer, wine, water, and... Read more

Rudeness and Politics

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      1 comments

I really can't believe how completely rude and insensitive some people can be. I will also add that I hate discussing politics unless I am with friends. I hate to walk into a situation where things get heated, mostly because vocal conflict (we... Read more

Pinterest in Person

Monday, October 22, 2012      0 comments

I had an awesomely fantastic time today at a friend's house. She was holding a "Pinterest in Person" event, the idea being that Pinterest is all about what we are interested in - say, crocheting, gardening, cooking, etc., but it is very solitar... Read more

Doing better

Saturday, October 20, 2012      1 comments

Things are going a bit better with my broken toe. I actually didn't tape it to the next toe over, because I knew it would hurt too much for me to actually be able to tape it. I did manage to find one of those medical-type sandals people wear w... Read more

On top of everything else...

Friday, October 19, 2012      1 comments

So I was careful and ate well yesterday, and was quite proud of myself as a result. I was also feeling like I was accomplishing things. Just overall seeming like a very good day. After dinner I was heading to the recliner to read for a little... Read more

Laughing at myself

Sunday, October 14, 2012      3 comments

Today I fixed broccoli for dinner, cooked in just a bit of water. As I was about to drain it, I decided to be lazy and just drain it into the empty teapot that was sitting on the stove. No big deal, right? I would just empty it out later and ... Read more

Some time for me

Thursday, October 11, 2012      2 comments

I had such a nice time today at lunch. I actually organized a lunch for a friend who is new to my parish. I wanted to introduce her to a couple of my other friends from the parish. Ideally, I would have invited at least six or seven ladies, b... Read more

Not much energy today

Thursday, October 11, 2012      1 comments

Well, after yesterday was so full of (for me) intense exercise - which I am sure most people would consider very minimal - I just didn't have the energy today to do much of anything. To include getting out of my chair. I made a spark recipe wh... Read more

A Small Triumph

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      0 comments

It probably doesn't compare to most of the triumphs posted by other sparkers, but today I finally finished mowing my entire lawn. I have a very small front yard, and a very, very big back yard. I honestly don't think I have ever had the entire... Read more

Tired...

Saturday, October 06, 2012      2 comments

I am really, really tired after a week of serious cleaning and an evening of serious lawn mowing. I do think I got a significant amount of exercise and that makes me happy, but I am so tired I have to wonder if it was worth it. And I am starti... Read more

Fall Cleaning Part II

Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

I was spot on in my last blog - it took a total of five days of hard cleaning and decluttering, but I am finally more or less finished - with the downstairs of the house. I just about killed myself, though - I am exhausted! And every single da... Read more
