If they had opposable thumbs, we'd be doomed ...

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

We have two cats, A & E. After Ms. S.'s cat B went missing, August of 2011, we held off a bit, hoping he would return, mourning, and so on; but then Ms. S. really felt like the apartment needed a feline manager, and from the Humane Society we go... Read more

Oct. 2: Whole-grain "Twosday"

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      3 comments

I need to go to the store later and get some more oats, my recent breakfast and snack of choice (just soaked in a little milk with nuts and berries, and served cold? Maybe a splash of maple syrup? Kind of addictive) Today, a little fall-like and... Read more

... and some pudding

Monday, October 01, 2012      2 comments

I love pudding. To post an entire blog about pudding and my thoughts and feelings about it would take a while. And I'm lazy. But to summarize: [1] I ate store-bought pudding cups on occasion as a kid (vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch).... Read more

Mondays are also beginnings

Monday, October 01, 2012      3 comments

At least when they fall on the first of the month. What to do on a Monday on the first of the month? Pay bills. Take measurements. With Ms. S.'s aid the latter was accomplished. N: 16 (-0.5) A: 12 (-1) W: 35 (-2.5) H: 42.5 (... Read more

Sundays ...

Sunday, September 30, 2012      2 comments

Is Sunday for the first or last day of the week? 1. Q&A. Look at your calendar: a number will put Sunday on the far left, Saturday on the far right of the grid, and you get to bookend Monday through Friday with two "S"-days. You c... Read more

Saturday, September 29, 2012      2 comments

It's Saturday afternoon, heading toward evening, and outside it's been a gray, gray sort of day, but one that refuses to rain or blow wind. We might go shopping: we have no tempeh in the fridge. 1. From Friday to Saturday Ms. S. and... Read more

Bookends and Book Notes

Thursday, September 27, 2012      1 comments

Neither the potato-lentil "creme" nor the pizza mentioned yesterday were made. Ms. S. returned home at the expected time and we got a little television in before bed. Schedules can be busy, packed, hectic, and disjointed. They skew; they do not ... Read more

Wonky Wednesdays

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      0 comments

Wednesdays Ms. S. works what are for her 'weird' hours, 4-11pm. She gets lunch in the afternoon but needs a real 'dinner' when she gets home; she'll be up for many more hours, so it's not as if she'll get home, eat a big meal, and then sleep on ... Read more

The Mid-Morning Quesadilla

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      0 comments

Last summer we moved across a state from Ms. S's school location to her hometown and my place of employment. She brought the furniture, I brought the mojo, and together we filled in the blanks. About that time we were watching 'Mad Men' (the fir... Read more

Summer Soups, and: When is a Calorie not a Calorie?

Monday, September 24, 2012      0 comments
