Saturday was a very full day. Four batches of noodles cut and laid out to dry by lunchtime, 2 loads of laundry done, the kitchen swept and mopped. The afternoon was devoted to baking banana bread and putting together the 2 large bowls of... Read more
I have a domestic partner...
Saturday, October 14, 2017      16 comments

Yes, I am married but I thought you might enjoy this as much as I do. It seems that I have been sharing all my waking minutes with a new partner. You guessed it-Francine. Yes, she has been at my elbow and my side, trying to help me keep... Read more
Finally, a minute to myself
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      17 comments

No, it isn't really that bad but the days come and go so quickly. I spent 5 nights last week, making noodles to get ahead of the farmers market. DH sold them all. He called 3 times Saturday morning, very unusual for him. I have an order ... Read more
A lovely weekend

Off to a wedding this weekend. We left Saturday, arrived in plenty of time to rest before the 4 o'clock wedding. It was outside at a golf course, a bit breezy but pleasant. Social hour and reception with a great meal, then the dance. We ... Read more
A vexing problem and a solution
Friday, September 22, 2017      18 comments

It seems that when Joker, the cat, was acting strange, we were unaware that she had fleas. After she passed away, we then noticed that the house was totally infested. I tried for 3 weeks on my own to rid the house of the pests. Finally I... Read more
A Saturday with the little ones
Saturday, September 16, 2017      17 comments

Babysitting the two little boys today was a treat. I did all the laundry and filled baskets for the older ones to take to their rooms. It is too hard to tell the little boys things apart as they wear the same size shirts and shorts. I ca... Read more
Another week gone.

Oh, vey! I wanted to post sooner but here goes. Sunday at the fair, we visited the petting zoo, walked through the Hippodome to see the horses, strolled through several buildings to see what the vendors had to offer and just had fun wit... Read more
Where did the week go?
Thursday, September 07, 2017      17 comments

I haven't blogged for over a week but the Labor Day weekend may have helped. It was a lovely weekend with all the GC at the State Fair. I wanted to leave much earlier on Friday but felt lucky to get out of town by 3:30. As it was, I forg... Read more
Rushing around

Today was the day to have all the exhibits ready for the State Fair. I met DD on Hwy 46 to collect the bars that her children had baked. Rush back to town and meet with DD1 so that I have her exhibit tags for visual arts. I asked for th... Read more
Still dealing with hail claims
Tuesday, August 29, 2017      13 comments

I had thought to be done with claims but they keep on popping up. Some are minor but some have been pretty extensive. But that is nothing compared to the mess in Texas. I can deal with the inconvenience. One man complained about too much... Read more
A double eclipse
Monday, August 21, 2017      17 comments

I thought we might have a chance to see rTge eclipse. But the weather had another idea. A strong storm system moved in mid morning and then came the dark clouds, rain and hail. Most of the hail was small at first but then came the half d... Read more
Filling the gaps
Wednesday, August 16, 2017      21 comments

I have gotten a little lax on blogging. Finding the right balance or work, play, exercise and getting enough sleep is doable but needs constant attention. The 2 local GC helped me shred 16 heads of cabbage from the garden. Cabbage has a ... Read more
Trying to find a new normal
Thursday, August 10, 2017      14 comments

Moving in the right direction at work. It helped that SIL was gone for 3 days and I could concentrate on the most urgent items. I will have lots to do next week but it can wait for now. DH was back to the farmers market tonight. It was ... Read more

A wild and wonderful week!
Sunday, August 06, 2017      19 comments

This last week was a real blur. Two workdays that could make your head spin. Wednesday was adoption day and it was a very special afternoon and evening to rejoice in the climax of the AJ saga. He seemed to know the day was all about hi... Read more
