Remembering Point Zero…

Today my thoughts were fairly hung up on one particular subject…friends, or my lack thereof. As I have gotten older, I have found it more challenging to maintain friendships, let alone forge new ones. Sure, I have people I’ve known for years, but we’ve grown apart and don’t see each other much at all. As…

Back to the cold…

FAH-REEZING temperatures are back again. Ice is inch-thick in the duckies’ pink pool. They are not pleased. I think it was Friday I filled up all their water containers because the weather was warmer. They were loving it and over the past few days spent nearly every moment in the pink pool. When the ice…

Playing catch-up…

I have a bunch of photos I never got around to posting, so here goes. I quite like this one… Taken after that dusting of snow we had the other day. Today is much warmer, thank goodness. I was able to pour the duckies a bath using the outside tap, which has been frozen up…

Just playing…

Remember this quilt top? It’s one I found at the local thrift store. I took some of it apart to do something else with, then took out this one hexagon, just to play… I’ve been stitching while watching season 8 of Doctor Who. It’s been fairly entertaining. I haven’t watched Doctor Who since Matt Smith…

Flowers in a Vase…

The days seem to fly by, even in winter. I wrote the previous post several days ago and never got around to publishing it. I was a little run down for a few days, but am better, so am back to more regular tasks, I guess. I’ve been watching Mildred Pierce starring Kate Winslet. It’s…

A Sea of Geese…

Was it yesterday I saw the geese? I can’t remember. One day flows into the next, and I find I have a hard time tracking what happened when. Maybe it’s the change in temperature. Yesterday it was at or near 60 degrees. Today it’s lightly snowing and everything’s frozen again. I had to haul water…

Comfy covers…

I do believe this marks my first post of the year. We’ve been in a very dry deep freeze here in Kansas for weeks. This weekend and coming week we’ll see warmer temps in the 40s and 50s, and I’m very glad for it. I am actually busy writing elsewhere, so haven’t been here much….

Truth window…

Monday night I got walloped with a migraine. Two days later, I am still recovering. I told H it seemed like the result of a perfect storm. It was the end of my period, a time at which I tend to be prone to migraines, I went off my diet a bit and I think…

Sooooo sneaky…

I put two new bales of straw in the duck house a couple days ago. Each morning at least one of them is on top of the highest bale… However, I had not seen any eggs since adding the bales. I scoured the floor looking for them – I get two every day. But I…

Just words…

It looks like it has been 10 days since I last posted. I have been busy with travels, then leaf raking and fall activities… But I’m also back to working on my book, or books, as I think this work will be a trilogy. I have had lots of challenges of late, ups and downs,…

It’s Friday…

It’s Friday and I’m only just now sitting down to post. Even though I don’t have a regular “job,” I still somehow manage to stay super busy these days. In the mornings I take care of cats, ducks and garden. I am slowly getting things organized in the garden for the winter. I am leaving…

Beel Cleentohn…

I don’t know where H and I came up with that pronunciation…Beel Cleentohn…but it’s a favorite. We got to experience a little more of Bill Clinton on our trip. As I mentioned in my last post, it is important to me to make road trips as interesting as possible. We stopped half-way to our destination…
