Happy Ending for a chair

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:06:07 +0000

This is (a kinda blurry photo of) my friend Dana, who used to be on my Meals on Wheels route. Back in November, she moved into a (very nice) assisted living apartment building. I stop in for a visit occasionally, and on my last visit she mentioned to me how difficult it is for her Continue reading →

Where we are now

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 17:38:53 +0000

Here we are, at the beginning of the first full week of February, and it’s going to be 75 degrees today. The birds are chirping merrily, the flowering trees are full of flowers, the sun is bright and warm. It would be lovely if only it weren’t so ominous, that this is going to be Continue reading →

Catching Up

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 05:38:51 +0000

Sorry for the long silence. My stupid keyboard broke, the little Bluetooth one that I use with my iPad Mini. A few keys still worked properly, but some did not work at all, and some would spit out completely different characters. I went onto some user forums to see if there was a way to Continue reading →

Chicken with Wine and Shallots

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 20:25:36 +0000

I came across this recipe, I think on Facebook, which should be evidence that Facebook is not entirely useless. You can find the recipe (and picture) here. I made this for dinner one night, and it is delicious. I generally read comments on online recipes, and one person in the comments said they added peas Continue reading →

Throwback Thursday

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 12:29:32 +0000

I have a friend and she comes from the high plains Wise as the hills and fresh as the rains I have a friend and she taught me daring Threw back the windows and let the air in For all she knows Bless my blue moon rose I have a friend and we talk about Continue reading →

I Hate Appliances

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 21:42:21 +0000

Specifically, I hate modern appliances.  Why?  Because one tiny thing breaks and it ends up costing a ton of money.  For example, our stove, which we bought a long time ago, only lasted one year (just past the warranty) before some tiny piece of plastic inside the doohickey behind one of the knobs broke, and Continue reading →

Save the Titans

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 22:53:05 +0000

Near the California/Oregon border, near Crescent City, is Redwood National Park. Within this beautiful park (which I have not personally visited), there is a small grove of giant redwoods, discovered in the 1990s, nicknamed the “Grove of Titans”.  The biggest two are the fourth and fifth largest known coastal redwoods in the world, and they Continue reading →

Bad Sunrise Photos

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 01:38:07 +0000

This whole trying to post EVERY DAY in November is tapping my creativity. I think I have an idea for a post, and then I look, and I realize that I already wrote about it, so I have to try to come up with something else. So, what you get today is bad pictures of Continue reading →

Spotlight Saturday

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 03:43:22 +0000

Spotlighting an exhibit that I saw back in September, that was based on the Milliner’s trade, mostly Degas, but not all Degas. The painting above is Renoir, called, ‘At the Milliner’s’. I liked this painting a lot.  Art can be subjective, so I will tell you what I see…I see women, tired at the end Continue reading →

Friday Recap

Sat, 25 Nov 2017 04:21:25 +0000

Thanksgiving is over, and it was a lovely day.  Mulder and I went for a very long walk in the morning, much longer than usual, and we were tired when we got home.  Too bad, because I still had some cooking to do.  Thankfully I had started the day before, or I wouldn’t have gotten Continue reading →

Turkey Day

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 12:03:08 +0000

Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving, with all of your favorite things to eat, with all of your favorite people. While Mulder and I were out on our walk the other morning, I heard a story about the Turkey Pardon, where the sitting President of the US Pardons the turkeys that are sent Continue reading →

Wordless Wednesday

Anxiety The van flies, rattles across heavily potholed roads bringing me closer to my mother, but it can’t catch up to my brain, which is speeding past me. Running running fast running past shadows and blurred trees and before and now and if I could catch up to my thoughts, wrestle them to the ground, Continue reading →
