Today It's Time to Play Catch Up on Some Overdue Chores

After checking my list of chores that I have written down for this weekend, I am heading out to my car to detail it thoroughly. I use Murphy's Oil Soap on the dash and on the interior of the doors. It not only has amazing cleaning abilities, Murphy's leaves a fresh scent. A good vacuuming of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Not A Fun Day, but A Necessary One

I have been dealing with chronic pain that comes and goes for the past few years. It tends to move around from my various muscles and joint to joint. It started not long after I learned that I had Hypothyroidism. This afternoon I have an appointment for my yearly wellness check. I am hopeful they... Sign in to see full entry.

I Was Reminded Once Again Today Why This Savings is A Smart One

I have always been a bit on the frugal side, so my natural inclination to harvest rainwater is no surprise to those who know me. It's like having a water savings account for the many dry days we experience on hot summer days here in Pittsburgh, and it saves me a fortune on my monthly water bill... Sign in to see full entry.

It Was Nearly 90 Degrees Yesterday, but We Still Had a Productive Day

After a trip to Lowes to purchase pepper plants, tomato plants, sunflower seeds, a variety of herbs, topsoil, potting soil, fertilizer, compost, and mulch...John and I got them all planted in their summer locations.

I Never Had an Issue with Certain Plants Until Last Year

Last year while trimming the hedges I ran into some poison ivy that had somehow intertwined itself throughout my box hedges. Living along the river and near the woods, I have been warned about the poison ivy plants that grow everywhere, but the leaves of three never bothered me until they did. After...

They Don't Make New Series Seasons and Episodes Fast Enough

I have a habit of binge-watching my favorite series. One of my favorite series is set in 1813 in Regency Era London, and I cannot get enough of it. Netflix's Bridgerton is currently in season three, with only eight episodes of which half aren't available until June 14th, 2024. Bridgerton is based on... Sign in to see full entry.

I Spent the Day Shopping and Found a Cute Table & Chairs

We purchased a small table and chairs from Amazon for a nook in our kitchen a few months ago, but I never really liked the size, color, or style of the dinette set. Today, we hunted for a more suitable table and chairs that matched our style and located a cute one from Marketplace for the right... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Today

I am changing plans from my traditional Friday meal choice. Fish Friday is the direction I normally head to, but John's work schedule this week has him home for the dinner hour and he requested breakfast. It is wet and chilly today, so that is fine by me. A hot plate of fried potatoes with onions... Sign in to see full entry.
