Getting Back to Normal

Monday, May 09, 2011      7 comments

Why does it always take a period of transition after a delightful weekend away from home to get back to "normal"?? Incidentally, the political memoir, "Ten Minutes from Normal", written by Karen Hughes, has the greatest title ever, don't yo... Read more

Saturday, May 07, 2011      2 comments

We're visiting my mother this weekend, and there are lots of opportunities to eat unwisely... But so far, SO GOOD. I had fruit instead of sweet rolls, and fajitas instead of enchiladas and chips- NO queso!!! I FEEL SO GOOD!... Read more

I saved this collection of factoids from one of the Spark articles, and bring it out for your astonishment (I need to read this periodically to keep my perspective): Upgrading from a 3-ounce Minibon to a Classic Cinnabon costs only 24% ... Read more

A Bird in the Hand

Monday, May 02, 2011      4 comments

Actually, it was a bird in the HOUSE! The DH left the front door wide open in the pre-dawn darkness, when he went out to position a sprinkler on this, one of our two allowed mornings per week to water the yard... And there's a bird nes... Read more

Chance of Rain

Sunday, May 01, 2011      2 comments

I feel guilty, having not had to go through what a large part of the country has suffered... The photos from Alabama are chilling, and the destruction from the tornadoes is unbelievable, but we in Texas are hurting for rain. Today the... Read more
