The Use of Puce

I think it is interesting how the color bright blue turns to puce after you click on things on Blogit, such as the things listed as categories on the home page or the names of blogs on the member's profile page. I assume the change is to let you know that you have already read that so that you can... Sign in to see full entry.

We are deep into the graying of Kansas City, even though the white continues to fall at a lesser pace. In the panoramic view from my bedroom window, I see five different monstrous mountains of dirty snow piled up by snowplows and bobcats. What once was white is differing shades of gray to almost...

There was a time, not so long ago, that I still loved the thought of, the expectation of, the desire for sequestration. For me, it was a happy word....the love of a nook, alone with a book (Henry W. Longfellow in Morituri Salutamus ) was never dull or tiring. It never mattered what the weather,... Sign in to see full entry.

Ho Hum Stuff

I just got back from taking my car for a really long drive. I drove, and drove, and drove after I got it started and filled it with gas. It gave me a little trouble starting even though son fully charged the battery for me. Poor thing has been sitting in the cold and snow for days, and days, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Today we are discussing mondegreens. By we, I mean me, for one, stuck here inside with my car battery inside with me recharging with the aid of the battery charger of Son #3 who dug me out of the snow. Baltimore Sis, for two. Friday is always one of her days off work as she works four ten-hour days... Sign in to see full entry.

What do you have when there is thunder, lightning, blowing snow, no visibility except white? Definitely a thundersnorm. Yesterday, in preparation for the winter weather warnings, Son #1 took my keys and went out into the cold to run my car for a bit and perhaps go for a ride and gas it up if he felt...

Double The Fun

I am a singleton. I come from a long line of singletons. All of my children, my grandchildren, and my only great-grandbaby have been singletons, though one of them, one of Phil's brothers was almost a dizygotic twin, though it is not commonly known. On the other hand, though, my husband was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Bag Of Jello

It is hard to imagine that Grandson Phil turned 27 this month. I've never known a person quite like him. Diagnosed with Angelman's Syndrome in his early years, he definitely has been a "handful" but he has also been a wonderful blessing and a lot of fun. February is a busy, busy month in our family...

Like A Ghost From The Past

"In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists." ~ Eric Hoffer I happened to run across an old television drama called The Rockford Files. I couldn't help but stop and watch for a bit. James Garner was... Sign in to see full entry.

Has It Only Been Nine Years?

I'm so behind in everything I want to do. It seems that the older I get the more I want to do, but the longer it takes for each thing that I do do. Also, the older I get, the more I think about all the things I always intended to do and have never done, and that possibly the time is getting shorter... Sign in to see full entry.
