Still Here

Hi there, dear people of Blogitsville. I'm just taking a few days off, in case anyone's wondering if I fell off of this planet yet. Hope everyone is doing well here in town. Will be back soon and catch up with y'all then. Hugs. RP Sign in to see full entry.

Know the Names of Santa's Reindeer?

I was thinking of Santa's special reindeer taking flight tonight, hopefully along with the politically incorrect Rudolf, so in an effort to save my limited brain power, I enlisted the help of Go-To Google to get all of their names back into my head. Here they are, just for the heck of it (I'll catch... Sign in to see full entry.

So Maybe There IS Hope for the World

While trekking through various shops today, and then going to the mall, we covered a lot of ground and saw all kinds of people. What, or rather who, I didn't expect to see was our former neighbor. We knew they had a shop in another mall that's undergoing restoration now, but today I saw her working... Sign in to see full entry.

A Non-Stop Flight, File Under: (Almost) Absurd

I think it's safe to say that we all know where Los Angeles is on the map, and likewise, we all know where Hawaii is located in relation to L.A. That's a pretty simple visual. Land mass, then a sea of water, and then island(s). There is a commercial currently running locally for a Hawaiian Airlines... Sign in to see full entry.

At Kabu's Suggestion...

Before I Spoke I had mentioned over in RP's Poetry Gypsy that I heard three languages before I could speak: English, Italian and Poetry. From my parents I heard English; from other family members I heard a dialect of Italian; and from nursery rhymes and the children's books my mother read to me, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Mom Did What!

She Confessed... Each year at Christmastime, and actually throughout the year, Mother was one to be reminding us about various rules of household safety. She taught us about turning the handles of cooking pans to the side so that they wouldn't get knocked over and fry or boil us, literally. Uh, not... Sign in to see full entry.

File Under: You Never Know...

Pat's post today about her friend from Mexico reminded me of a time when I was a new mother in a small apartment, one which I had tried valiantly to decorate on a budget of so little. Husband worked during the day while I was home tending the baby. I'd met another young mom two apartments down from... Sign in to see full entry.

Great Balls of - Sheets?

I know my clothes dryer is getting old. It's from 2003, but it still dries the clothes okay. Usually. But I have no idea why it is that the thing seems to have it in for the bed sheets. I put the sheets in there, one at a time, usually with pillowcases. Everything is separated. When the cycle is... Sign in to see full entry.
