Wretched Day

Wednesday was wretched. The scheduler at my dentist's office called at one o'clock to tell me that my two o'clock appointment had been canceled due to my hygenist having a family emergency. I was dressed and ready to leave. Well! Now what do I do with the whole day ahead of me. My Apple airbuds have... Sign in to see full entry.

I guess when you live in any area, you accept the wildlife that comes with it--birds, rabbits, squirrels, possums, raccoons, snakes, etc. I noticed a bunch of excitement going on among the guys that were working on a tree removal in the front yard. I went over to see what it was all about. A... Sign in to see full entry.

Major Water Leak

Just when you think things are going well, they aren't. I'd picked up my purse, fixin' to go run errands, when I got a call from our handyman, Sidney, "What's all this water out here?" (in the middle of our property). I put my things down, got in the golf cart and went over to see what he was... Sign in to see full entry.

Life in the Not-So-Fast-Lane

Recently I had to make a run over to my sister's house in Channelview (35 miles) and promised to be there by nine o'clock. Okay, easy enough. I got on the Hardy Toll Road near me and made my way to the Sam Houston Tollway. Heading east, I glanced over at the west bound side. Wow. Backed up for miles... Sign in to see full entry.

Broccoli Flambe

I accidentally had Broccoli Flambe the other night. The following is an example of WHAT NOT TO DO. I put a skillet on the stove, turned on the burner, got the broccoli out of the freezer, looked in the cabinet (a little too long) for the olive oil. Went back to the stove, added the broccoli (no...

No So Prime Parking Spot

Running my car through the carwash was first on my to-do list today. Next was was quick trip to HEB to return a couple of items. Carwash done, then on to HEB, just around the corner (sort of). I turned into my usual "place" in the parking lot. No spaces available there, so I circled around to look... Sign in to see full entry.

Life really can "turn on a dime."

Church was different yesterday. At the beginning of the service, while we were singing, a young man (probably in his thirties) came suddenly into the service, dressed in a pullover and cargo shorts with a baseball cap on and walked straight to the pastor sitting on the front row. My first thought... Sign in to see full entry.

the tree

AC has had a bee yard for years across the road from a spot where two fairly important roads converged, making a triangle of desirable land for "progress." Sure enough, land clearing started. When they got close to a giant oak tree in the corner, AC went over and inquired of the project manager what... Sign in to see full entry.

Box fan & Egg production

Egg production has been way-y-y down--sometimes only 4 or maybe 6 a day. Not that it matters that much. The eggs are just for us and my sister's family to eat. But it does seem a shame, since AC drives all the way to heck and gone to buy 50 lb. sacks of feed for them. Plus Sidney brings them his... Sign in to see full entry.

chicken snake in the hen house

The chickens had scratched their way to daylight all around the bottom edge of the hen house, both inside and out, making holes big enough for any chicken snake to get in. So, while AC was busy with beekeeping that day, it would be my job to fill in the edges with dirt to keep the varmints out. He... Sign in to see full entry.
