I found out today that I needed a new swimsuit. Yikes. Swimsuit shopping in July. I girded up and headed out.
First stop in Conservativeville is, of course, Wal-Mart. I will be able to spare you the details of shopping in that establishment as they had shipped all of their Ladies… Read full post »
So, another learning experience has presented itself to me. How to deal with it. Obviously I need a new way to do it because I just had a flashback to something I didn't know I remembered. That was very unpleasant, BTW. Sneak attack, as it were.
As was the event recently… Read full post »
First, the obligatory picture of cracked earth...
My garden has taken a serious beating this summer. Such joy and anticipation in the planting, and now, the sorrow of watching it go to seed.
I heard an old favorite song on the way home tonight and thought that it would be a good night for sappy love songs, so here are some of my favorites. These are from my idealistic youth, when fairy tales came true and perfect love was just over the horizon. And… Read full post »
I just found this in my email. It's a worthy cause.
Another beautiful morning to drive to work. The drought this year is giving some excellent colors to the sunrises. I am totally in awe, and have to force myself to put the camera down so that I can drive in a reasonably straight line. Isn't that blue sky… Read full post »
I found out today that Adam Lambert is touring with Queen and they did a concert in Kiev, and, it's available in YouTube. Seriously, what did we ever do without YouTube?
So, here is the whole concert, beginning with a 15 minute interview in Russian. Kinda fun to listen to even… Read full post »
I am sitting on my sofa, feeling down and grumpy (it is the full moon-ish) and here comes Puff. Meowing her way up the steps onto the sofa. Purring her way into a kitty pile by my left elbow. Rolling her face around to get just the right spot on her… Read full post »
How Busy Am I?
And what changed my mind.
Not to sound ingenuous, but…
Gosh, I don’t know how to start telling this story. It’s a difficult story to tell; one that I don’t share. It’s a story that, if I had shared it when it was happening,/… Read full post »

Well, the patio has begun. I decided in front of my shed is good. There's a big maple right next to it so it gets shaded until early afternoon. That means I'm going to have to put some kind of shade thing at the west end. This was prior to… Read full post »
Odes to bats
Can be complex
The bat that came daily
And seemed like a friend
I'm trying to write an ode but I'm drawing a blank. My Bat Is Dead!!!!! Why did it have to die?
I liked that bat. It came by every day when the bats were in… Read full post »
First, a celery update. It seems to be surviving. All of the big stalks are gone, and right tasty they were, plus they sort of fell over from the shock so I cut them off to decrease the stress. The rest of it, though, is standing up and green and perky.… Read full post »
Okay, the homework is posted for the world to see, if they only knew where to look! Ha! My link to my page is to the left.

Living is a strange experience, isn't it. We go through life, most of us, trying to be good people. Getting through one day at a time. Working, playing, laughing, loving. And hurting, being angry, feeling underappreciated and resentful. But hey, we're only huma… Read full post »
I am very confused. Is it really crapping out or is this mass hysteria due to lack of communication?
We all know what rumors can do.
So here's the premise. Use one of the following sentences to write a paragraph. Just a short one, on whatever topic you feel inspired to use, and put it in the comments. I have to do my homework tonight and am finding it a bit arduous so I need a bit… Read full post »
So, I am sitting on my couch trying to cough out a politically correct story about the Sandwich Shop, and I realize I am leading up to Romantic Sliders! LOL!
The pages will go live Sunday, so stay tuned...
Well, there's my original artwork for my first web page. Our assignment is to develop a "web presence" for a fictional company. And I, your intrepid blogger, get to write the description of the company and the history! This is going to be a company that… Read full post »
My neighbor with the garden, and the death wish for my grass, gave me stuff from his garden yesterday. Namely, a zucchini and a bunch of celery. Pretty nice. He gave them to me while I was busy, of course, because he usually catches me while I'm outside working. Yesterday, I… Read full post »
Wow. What a day. So glad that it's over. Now I can concentrate on myself and only myself. Yes, because that is what people with my disorder do.
I have been diagnosed by a fellow blogger as a narcissist. I'm not sure I agree with said diagnosis because it is getting… Read full post »

Now that I got your attention...
I haven't posted about the garden in a while and have been seeing great things out there. We are having a 3" shortage of rain right now, so watering helps.
