How New Year's Resolutions Can Get One In Trouble

Now I'm in a pickle because of what I posted on my other blog that I keep going. Nautikos infers that I'm crazy, and I well might be. It's just hard to tell if you are crazy, if you are crazy. If you are "crazy", what you are seems like what you should be. So, Naut, I might be and just don't know... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Work Fun?

"...so, what is the most fun job you have ever had--not the most lucrative, not the most important, but the most fun?" I posed this question because the conversation had segued from going back to work after the holidays, to things very much disliked about one's job. Silence as each thought about the...

Moving On

How fun to see what the new year brings--like Blogit members posting who have been gone for a coon's age. With regular home life following a months-long holiday season of celebrating from Thanksgiving to New Year, it is fun to take time to see life moving on. Some things have taken me by surprise,...

Grannie On The Go

My car was totally winterized recently in every way but the tires. I left that pending for a time because I wasn't in the mood for it even though I knew the tread was practically gone. I don't drive much anymore so I assumed there wasn't any hurry. Then it snowed. I forget how many inches we had,... Sign in to see full entry.

Where's My Vit-C Pills?

The little lakes across the way are frozen over, not enough for humans to ice skate, but it is very cold out there and tiny, solid snowflakes are coming down, not pretty lacy ones. The Canada geese seem quite surprised when they come in for a landing on the water and instead land hard and slide... Sign in to see full entry.

Something To Jog My Mind

Too much celebrating in the last two days has made it difficult for me to focus, today, on reading blog posts. I'll be reading along and my attention somehow stops on the word "snow" or the word "cold" and I just kind of space out for a time. My mind comes back at the mention of food but only to...

Just One More Sleep

Just one more sleep for the little ones and the gift-packages will come apart at the seams--ribbons/bows here and wrapping paper fragments there. Breakfast will be forgotten. Styrofoam packing and plastic casings, gifts of clothing (socks and underpants especially) will be littered for mom and dad... Sign in to see full entry.

Two Black Things

I've got all kinds of things to write about, but I just can't make myself do it. I did write a nice long post earlier in the day about Seasonal affective disorder and Christmas depression, and then when I clicked Save & Post it disappeared. That, of course, made me depressed when I hadn't been... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Think!

Two more days and I'm heading to Mee-Maw's and Pa-Pa's. Maybe Great-grandma will be there too. And, I'll just bet she has sparkling things, and twinkle lights, and presents at her house too. I'll even bet she has a Santa or two that I can play with without breaking them. It's going to be a mighty... Sign in to see full entry.

Trope Scope

"Too many cooks spoil the broth" ~ Old Proverb I've got two things going in my kitchen and I'm definitely not sure how they are going to turn out because I've had too much help from too many cooks and I have incorporated all of their ideas, and literal assistance, into the project. One of the... Sign in to see full entry.
