It's Here! It's Here!

The rest of my computer arrived today.  We opened up the box to be sure everything's there and nothing's broken, at least not on the surface.  It will be a while before we get it set up.  There's no place to put it right now.   I sent my sister...

Found a Bedspread

So, I've been looking off and on for a new bedspread ever since we put Cleo to sleep.  I decided back when she was so sick that when she was gone I would redo my bedroom to cheer myself up.  The cheering up part hasn't happened yet, but I have enjoyed...

Kind of a Dull Day

Hubby was outside almost all day today, so I was on my own.  I didn't have to cook because Hubby made a huge pot of chili yesterday.  I spent the morning cross-stitching.  For lunch, I baked some big gold potatoes and we put chili over them, complete...

I WORKED ALL DAY!!!

For the first time in a very long time, I worked all day today.  The first thing we did was go to the grocery store.  I have so much trouble walking that going to the store is a big deal for me.  We went to WallyMart and we both had to get a few...

Scribbles #98 - oh, PM, what hast thou done to us??

    spam, alakazam, on the lam, phlegm, problem, Bethlehem, grim, pilgrim, fit and trim, prom, wisdom, magic kingdom, addendum, crumbum, spiced rum.   "But Mom, I hate Spam," whined Absolom. "I know you do, honey," Mom said, "but look -...

SUCCESS AT THE OPTOMETRIST'S OFFICE!

Success, if  you consider $495.00 for new glasses (after a 10% discount for paying in full) and $102 for an eye-health supplement (3 mo. supply) a success.  To be fair, I get lots of fancy stuff.  I have no-line bifocals, and the lenses that are both...

BIG DAY TODAY!

I've got a big day ahead.  We're going to the car repair place to have a new tire put on the van.  They had to order the tire.  Our car is so old (it's a '99) that they don't keep the tires in stock.  Goodie!  No more tiny tire!  After that, I go to...

NOT MUCH HAPPENIN'

I couldn't sleep last night.  Ended up drifing off around 4:30am and sleeping until about 7:00am.  I got up and fixed a nice boiled dinner (corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onions).  I also baked our last two applies, which were starting to...

Oh No, Not the Strawberry Plants!

We HAD a large pot filled with three huge strawberry plants, putting out long runners.  The plants were blooming and bearing like crazy - we've had strawberries on our cereal every day for weeks.  One morning, Hubby went out to pick his "crop" and it...

Lots of Different Stuff

Today (June 19th) is my daughter's 43rd birthday.  She said no one, not a single person, commented on her age the whole year she was 42.  I find that hard to believe.  Does anyone here know the significance of the number 42??   The minotor for...

Nothin' Much

I'm on the last square of the baby blanket - putting the little design across the top.  The design that I thought would take me half an hour.  The design that actually takes a couple of days.  And yes, there will be pictures.   Part II of my...

Father's Day

We fixed a Father's Day dinner for my father-in-law today.  Hubby got up earlier than I did, and already had bacon frying and onion chopped for the baked beans when I staggered out into the kitchen at 6:45am.  All I had to do was the assembly.  I...

GARAGE SALE, DAY 2

I put out more stuff and sold nothing at all.   Sale wasn't a dud, though.  We sold a lot of my father-in-law's stuff.  I'm so glad it's over.

Scribbles #96

Jenny loved Todd.  He was handsome, popular, athletic, brainy - in short, he was perfect.  She knew he was too perfect for her, but her friend Caroline loved him, too.  All right, all the girls loved him, but Caroline deserved to have the perfect...

GARAGE SALE

The neighbors are having a garage sale.  It's for a sad reason (his mother died recently), but it's a really good reason for me to clean out my closet!  I've got to get a move on, though.  They just moved it up a week, so now I only have four days to...

email from my sister ...

This is an email I got from my sister today.  I guess it takes all kinds.   Hi!  I was walking Maggie this morning and we like to walk downtown on the weekends because there are few people and little traffic.  We walked to a corner and turned...

THE CABLE GUY COMETH - AGAIN - BUT WHEN?

We've gotten three messages from the cable company, setting our appointment for repairs.  One says Monday in the morning.  One says Saturday morning.  One says Saturday afternoon.  Lucky for us, there's a time stamp on each of them.  The Saturday...
