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
Fall Cleaning
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

I always did march to the beat of a different drummer...so I decided it was time for fall cleaning instead of spring. Boy, did the house need it! I have been working my tail off for three days, and I anticipate at least two more. Who knew I h... Read more
A very good birthday
Thursday, September 27, 2012      2 comments

I actually had a pretty nice birthday yesterday, though I wasn't really expecting to. The birthday cake I made came out very well - although not as much of it was eaten at the potluck I took it to as I had expected. But I think I will put the ... Read more
Birthday
Wednesday, September 26, 2012      3 comments

Tomorrow (less than an hour away) is my birthday, and I am fighting a pity party. I won't get any presents...but that is normal anymore, and I don't really want presents per se. What I want is to be with the people I love and who love me, and ... Read more
