I've learned something else about myself. I seem to need structure in my life, which is definitely something new. It seems that if I'm not having a "normal" day then the "normal" rules don't apply. Or something like that. Especially the mornings... Read more
I don't know what happened today. Or rather, I know what happened - I went off the rails entirely - but I don't know why.
I think it started with breakfast. I don't usually eat breakfast, but I decided to today. I got up about 6:30 instead... Read more
I just got back from seeing The Martian. What a movie! I'm exhausted. Apparently I was a lot more tense than I thought I was. You should see it if you get a chance. It was only here last night and today, though there were about 8 showing today o... Read more
And happy October 1! Doesn't really seem possible, does it?
Today revolved around bridge. I had Mom and a couple from church over for bridge this afternoon. Had a good time though we got thoroughly trounced the first rubber. Mostly from ove... Read more
Today has been a busy day. I left about 9:30 and went to the U-Pick place to get some tomatoes (they're very small now, not that they were ever very big) and green beans and maybe a few raspberries for Mom. I also got some pie pumpkins (50 cents... Read more
Another lazy day. I'm getting a lot of those lately. I wonder if it's because it's fall and I'm slowing down? Or just getting lazy. Probably some of each.
Tonight I cooked the last of the green beans (I need to go to the U-Pick place tomorr... Read more
Gary (contractor) finally came back after six weeks and six phone calls which weren't returned! He did the touching up inside. It should still be done better, but I'll take whatever I can get at this point. I looked online for the screen door an... Read more
Sunday and catching up
Yikes! Didn't realize it's been so long since I posted. Mostly not much to talk about, though that seldom stops me. I had a couple of rough days (depression, among other things) and didn't feel like posting here. Fortunately it only lasted a cou... Read more
Turned out that Home Depot won't cut the blinds I got for the living room, so I got them a couple of inches longer than I wanted. And the ones that are almost the right size for the dining room window don't come in white, so couldn't get them. B... Read more
Saturday and Sunday
Yesterday (Saturday) was a mostly outside day. Not that I spent all day outside, but most of what I did, the productive stuff anyway, was outside. I watered my huge spruce, went to the Farmer's Market, went to the U-Pick place and picked some ve... Read more
Another largely domestic day. I installed the brackets for the curtain rod in the sewing room, and hung the curtains. I would have done the office, too, except the package of brackets didn't have the right parts. I'll have to go to Walmart or Lo... Read more
Today I did my impersonation of a domestic diva. I vacuumed all the floors - including the kitchen, hallway (flagstones), and both bathrooms, then wet Swiffered the kitchen and my bathroom. I cut apart Mom's skirt to make the curtains in the kit... Read more
Didn't I just go through a massive decluttering phase before I moved out here? Yet I keep bringing stuff over from Mom's house to mine. Mostly good stuff, and stuff that I'll use or am using. Lots of stuff to make curtains out of today. I even g... Read more
Today was a good day and I made good choices - and didn't make the kind of bad choices I made yesterday. Not that all my choices were stellar. Not considering that walking on my nice, thick, soft carpets was entirely different than walking on Wa... Read more
Oh, well. Tomorrow will be a better day.... Read more
