They’re Fired!

Buggar and Weanie… two of the fattest, laziest cats ever…are FIRED! They have allowed a mouse the run of the house for the past week. H and I were having breakfast this morning when said mouse came out to see what was going on, running all around the stove and our kitchen, right there in…

A heavy morning…

I woke up this morning with some things on my mind. They bothered me for quite a while, as it’s a problem I’m not sure what to do about. One of those things that seems to plague you throughout life, something where there’s a tendency to blame others for the situation, but if you look…

Willow and what not…

My day was an unplanned busy one. I ran errands…store for a few groceries, hayseed store for more duck grain…and to return a big bag of grain infested with bugs…weevils???…that are all over my house now…gas since H had left the car on E plus new windshield fluid which was also on E…and thrift shop….

Eclipsed…

Still posting from the iPad…not real fun. Anyway, I was outside during the eclipse for a bit ┬áThe light was so odd… The greens had such an emerald, blue green tint to them, almost sickly really… I read a brief story about the Navajo and how they stay inside and do not observe the eclipse,…

Pure bliss…

Today feels like fall. The weather is so perfect, 70s, a gentle breeze, that I had the strong desire to take off my dress and walk around in the garden naked. I probably should have, but I have neighbors. I do have a fenced-in yard. I probably should have. We have loads of tomatoes. For…

A weird week…

I don’t know what to say about this week, other than I have felt very strange. I really didn’t do any of my normal things. Perhaps it was time for a shift, a shift in perspective and habits. It did feel good to crochet, although working with two strands of heavy cotton yarn is hard…

Waiting…

I’m sitting here waiting for my father-in-law to come start my car. The battery has died. I knew better than to keep driving it so seldom for short trips. I was too lazy last time I drove it to keep driving for 20 minutes to charge up the battery. I wanted to run errands before…

Progress!

I’m happy to report today – actually tonight – I have made progress in the studio! The main progress being the much-needed addition of a proper chair in which to work. For comparison’s sake, here is the chair I had been using… Not much to look at, is it? It wasn’t the worst chair I’ve…

The happy cat…

I wish that title was about having found a new home for one of the kittens, but, alas, they are all still here. There’s no room in the inn, so to speak. After making a number of attempts to take the kittens to the shelter, including a for-sure appointment last week, we were turned down…

July and stuff…

So, we’re well into… I noticed yesterday I hadn’t even registered the new calendar photo for the month. It’s like I was seeing it for the first time. Weird. In the back yard some of the sunflower plants are a good two feet over my head, most still not flowering yet. However, I did notice…

Just a bit…

Is it the lazy, hazy days of summer that are making me so sleepy? I was busy today, except for another mid-day nap. Naps are unusual for me, but I think I feel better because of resting more. Could be the hot humid mornings getting to me when I’m out doing chores. I’ve been working…

Finally flowers…

I woke up way too early this morning after way too little sleep to thoughts of what to do with the ducks, the pros and cons: Give them away. Not ready to give up yet, especially when they are so close to laying eggs…it’s what I’ve been waiting for. Clip their wings. Absolutely necessary. Create…
