So Much Sunday Writing, But ...

Monday, November 05, 2012      2 comments

... not the writing or blogging I had planned. I 'fell back' as planned, awoke at a reasonable time, and had a variation on huevos rancheros for breakfast (lentils instead of beans). And some pumpkin pudding to lighten the mood. The ba... Read more

A Shopping Saturday

Sunday, November 04, 2012      0 comments

This evening Ms. S. works, as usual; she left before the game was over in N.O., which means she luckily missed any of the post-game insanity that has surely started up in this city. The Tide survivied -- alas -- a close one against LSU. At his h... Read more

Sleep sleep, drip drip, type type

Friday, November 02, 2012      2 comments

Fridays should be brief. Short and sweet. They're too short as it is: once the weekend arrives you're counting down the minutes until it is over and you have to return to the so-called 'real world.' 1. It's still November, so it's still tim... Read more

Everything New is Old Again

Thursday, November 01, 2012      0 comments

It's now November. We are registered to vote. The autumn sun is a delight. The water heater still drips. 1. Returning to some fitness material after a couple months off. Basically a warm-up and then bodyweight circuit ... that was this m... Read more

Windy Wednesday

Wednesday, October 31, 2012      0 comments

Just a breeze today. And just a breeze of a blog. Where to begin? The 'girls' ... go me up around 4am. And then off and on until nearly 5:30, when they get fed. Really, it was A, not E. Scratch scratch at the bed post. Jump on the bed and c... Read more

Monday Musings

Monday, October 29, 2012      0 comments

To keep things brief ... [1] October is almost over. I love both lists and plans. At some point I'll personally and privately have to (re)evaluate October, but now I'm looking forward to November. I love "All Hallows' Eve," "All Saints' Day... Read more

Sunday Sustenance

Sunday, October 28, 2012      1 comments

For some reason my phone thought that today was the beginning of daylight saving time and reset itself to an hour earlier; it's off by a week. Luckily I was not fooled. I. About twice a year our Sunday writing group does not the regula... Read more

Saturday Slashers

Saturday, October 27, 2012      0 comments

Hey, there were a couple college football upsets this weekend ... not that it mattered to me and Ms. S. I. It's homecoming around here, so I hear. We wisely stayed inside this Saturday afternoon and since we're approaching Halloween we... Read more

Freeform Friday

Friday, October 26, 2012      0 comments

No Roman numerals today, just little lists, some notes and reminders, and a day recapped before Ms. S. and I go shopping. Why don't we, Ms. S. wondered aloud around 7:30am, get jobs teaching English in China or elsewhere? Why not, inde... Read more

Thunderous Thursday, or ...

Thursday, October 25, 2012      0 comments

... the 150 calorie bun, the worst smell in the world, and thoughts on disgust. I. When Ms. S. and I want real 'burgers' from whatever veggie burger is in the freezer, I make up actual hamburger buns using a tried and true 5:3 (by weig... Read more

Wimpy Wednesday

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      0 comments

Pudding, puddles, playwrights, and non-pilsners. I. To use up an open can of pumpkin I tossed the rest of the puree in with some almond milk, sugar, cornstarch, spices, and vanilla. It makes 4 half-cup servings. I had it al made u... Read more

Tuesday Tasks

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      0 comments

A new coffee, contemplating 'grains', and needing to tidy up. As for the last: I needed a postage stamp, which necessitated combing through a box of miscellany, leading Ms. S., whose box it was, to realize and proclaim that the office is in need... Read more

Monday in Miniature

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      2 comments

10:45; Ms. S. leaves for work. It's a weird schedule we keep. A beautiful day, though, reviewed in reverse. I. Nutrition, Fitness, Motivation, Wellness ... those "healthy lifestyle" topics. I work actively and successfully on the first... Read more

Sunday: A Night in the Lonesome October

Sunday, October 21, 2012      2 comments

For some reason I am thinking of Zelazny. Tonight Ms. S. and I should finish the 'Alien' movies. Earlier in the week I opened a can of pumpkin for some purpose. I'm sure it will come back to me. I. Now it sits in the refr... Read more
