It's been a relaxing week. Perhaps because I wasn't called "Darlin," by a man less than half my age, or perhaps because there wasn't a workman insisting he talk to "the man" instead of me. But more likely it is because spring has finally arrived, and I got to go outside and play. I got … Continue reading Smiles And Chuckles
So here we are in Episode 2. I didn't think there would be another episode to the men rant, but there is because I need to get this off my chest. Out of my system, so to speak, so I can sleep tonight. If you recall the last men rant, you may remember that the … Continue reading Men And Between Men Episode 2
It's funny how our interests change as we move through life. Some things we loved to do when we were younger no longer inspire us. For me that thing is sewing. I will do almost anything to avoid sewing. I used to sew every free moment I had. I dropped out of Home Economics and … Continue reading Winter Coats To Giant Elephants
When she is dormant, life is calmer. There is less dropping of things and breaking of things and running into things. Multitasking, always a challenge, is much easier. Instructions and processes get carried out correctly or almost correctly. But when that bitchy ditz makes an appearance, things can get crazy and my lack of focus … Continue reading When The Ditz Rears Her Unfocused Head
Now doesn't that sound like a whine from a pathetic friendless lonely person who spends her days pining for a life filled with people and social events. I assure you that this is not the case. Although I could probably count the total number of friends I possess on less than two hands; and although … Continue reading I Need Playmates
No I am not having an affair. Nor am I between affairs. And no this blog isn't about sex or getting excited over the physically attractive attributes of men in general. I have publically confessed in the past that any sex drive I may have possessed is long gone thanks to a hysterectomy in my … Continue reading Men And Between Men
Sometimes you just want to cocoon with your introverted self. Sometimes you don’t want to engage. Sometimes you have nothing to say. Stringing conversational sentences together is an effort because you just don’t want to do it. And really what’s wrong with that? Personally I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. It is … Continue reading No Comment
Mayhem isn't the exact word. It may denote expectations of violence and chaos; but writers love alliteration (Wow I was so far off trying to spell that word–thank you again Siri). And I, who, these days, sometimes pretends to be a writer because I no longer have focus or take myself that serious, love to … Continue reading Mayhem, Mold, Mice and Music
You may recall The Story of a Carpet, a Coupon and a Sloppy Canadian from a few weeks back; and you may, or may not, be interested in the outcome. If you are, read on: The sloppy Canadian was doing what she does well, which is spill things, drip liquids, knock things over and basically … Continue reading Just In Case You Wanted To know
There are stories, and then there are STORIES. The difference is that, although both can provide interest and entertainment, it is a STORY that will stay with me long after I finish reading it. STORIES like Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery, which I read when I was a kid; Sophie's Choice, by William Styron, … Continue reading STORIES That Stay
Now there's six words I never thought I would be writing down or speaking out loud; but here I am and here they are: they want to give us money. They want our eyes to light up with dollar signs. They want us to jump at the chance to have cash in hand. Who you … Continue reading They Want To give Us Money
Travel is on my mind today. It is a day that freezing rain is in the forecast. A day that I am shut away in my office with two doors between me and the lower level. And a day that The Doc sits sans hearing aids to avoid all the noise. Since yesterday afternoon there … Continue reading Vicarious Travel
Morning yoga usually takes place in the family room, which is sizable and open and has a lot of floor space. Where I can lay out my mat so that I am facing the outdoor view through the large windows and patio door. But as detailed in my previous blog, the family room is out … Continue reading Is Yoga Amid Clutter Still Yoga?
Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip. It was happening, but silent. Hidden in walls. If only the walls could talk. Then they cold have mentioned there was an issue, and we could have avoided the aftermath. But woefully, we do not have talking walls. Instead it was a brown spot on the hardwood floor and some … Continue reading Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip!
It was frustrating and stressful. It was the first day of high school, and I couldn't find the right lineup to get into or any one to help me figure out how/where to obtain my class schedule. It was 1975. There was no technology for this type of administrative task back then. There wouldn't be … Continue reading Just When I thought I Was getting Boring
