Big Stuff

Lots of doings around here. The beloved and I did not find ourselves stranded on the highways around here in the snowstorm on Tuesday. However, my daughter managed her 20-minute drive in almost 3 hours. She was lucky. Her beloved managed his 25-minute drive in only 17 hours. Oddly, the thing that finally got him […]

I doubt it. But it’s in the forecast! Yay! We’ve actually been caught in our second year of endless-summer winter. It’s mid-January, and the green grass is creeping up to overtake the brown. Two red birds have been singing and nesting beside my bedroom window. (I’m not good with actual bird types. They might be […]

Random Wednesday

| September 14, 2011

Starting first with a check on Autumn because the temps have climbed again. Apparently, we’re due to break records today–most days ever in the 90s–which means most days ever with heat indexes in the triple digits. (To be fair to the weather gods, the humidity has lessened with the changing tilt of the sun.) Isn’t […]

Catching Up

| February 10, 2011

Again, it’s been a while. Not sure what happens–but I’ll tell you what’s happened since last I blogged.    In fact, I’ll post photos in no meaningful order. (Probably.) We went to Florida to look at condos on the beach. That seemed like such a good idea, until we considered how much work the ones […]

Wild Ride to the Rescue–and a Bad TV Habit

| January 11, 2011

Not really a rescue. The girl was stranded, so we ventured into the unplowed, more-frozen-than-ever world to pick her up. It would have been fun if terror weren’t involved. At last, we’re all home, and we don’t have to go out again. The girl was starving last night and asked for a rare treat for […]

Let it snow-ice-sleet!

| January 10, 2011

We’ve had it all since about 7 last night. Usually, when the weather folk forecast snow around here, we nod sagely and enjoy the hype despite knowing all will come to naught. Or a dusting. Not this time! It started with pellets of ice, switched to snow, on to freezing rain, back to snow, and […]

Well–it’s melting now–but we had snow!  And it stayed around for a day.   We had flurries all day yesterday. Is there anything more restful than writing while snow flurries past the window? As long as you know your power’s going to stay on, and you won’t have to spend four hours shoveling! I was […]
