Once I picked that zucchini, dinner just came together. I made a skillet vegetarian minestrone. The zucchini and green beans came from the garden, there were tomatoes in the freezer, the rotini and pinto beans were in the cupboard, and I had ... Read more

I have an Amazon gift card and did some online shopping. Instead of treating myself, I went for the mundane. You guessed it - underwear. At least it's Jockey, and the colors are pretty. We were supposed to gave lots of thunderstorms. Ar... Read more

The heat and humidity is back. I turned on the A/C and hunkered down with the kitties. Hunkering down included laundry and cleaning floors and bathrooms. I'm a sucker for the Olympics, and I watched the opening ceremonies. I've been... Read more

I left the office much later than I would have liked. At least the train ride home wasn't too terrible. Now that people are returning to offices, there are more people on the trains. The good news is that most people are wearing masks. M... Read more

For the very last time (I hope), I read the water meter, wrote a check, and dropped it off at city hall. Dinner included wax beans from the garden, and they were as good as I anticipated. Planting a garden is a lot of work, and my garden i... Read more

This evening I took a really, really good look at my garden and found a whole bunch of green and wax beans. When you look under the leaves, it makes a difference. Funny how that works. The birds were making a lot of noise. When I looked ... Read more

Yesterday I placed an order with Chewy, and it was sitting on my doorstep today. I wonder where the order was filled, because the delivery was lightning fast. I had been checking for green beans and hadn't found any. I was pulling weeds a... Read more

Since I don't work on Fridays, I said I wouldn't check my work emails, but I lied. After receiving a call from the office, I spent several hours answering emails and issuing a policy. Over the winter when snow was forecast, we got dumped o... Read more

The worst of the awful weather seems to have bypassed our area. Although it's raining now, it's not causing any commotion, so that is very good. I did a quick check of the garden. I don't see any green beans yet, and the zucchini are stil... Read more

I was doing some weeding and saw the reflection of two eyes coming from one of the window sills. It was little Sami wanting to be sure she didn't miss anything. It's almost 10 PM. After a warm and muggy day, the night breeze is refreshing... Read more

The humidity is back and so are my curls. Walgreens can stop leaving messages in my voice mail. I picked up my prescription. I finally shared with someone in the office that I'm planning to retire, and he's supportive. He joined the... Read more

Rough day, lots of deep breaths, better now. Sami crawled into my lap, made herself very comfortable, and planned on a nice long snooze. Lately, she naps for a bit and then makes it plain that she wants the chair all to herself. Since I'm... Read more
