Stormy Sunday
Sunday, November 15, 2020      9 comments

The sky is still dark grey and it's past 6:30 in the morning, but I can see the tree branches whipping about in the wind. The forecast agrees with me about the wind and says temps will be dropping all day with bouts of rain mixed in. Might ... Read more

Today is halfway through my long weekend. Laundry and a few zoom meetings, but probably not much else since my friend who was going to help with the cabinet had to cancel. It's been a grey day and that never makes me feel like doing much.... Read more
Happy Friday the 13th

Are you superstitious? Does the thought of Friday the 13th bother you - make you afraid of what might go wrong? You should know that not all cultures think of it as an unlucky day. In some countries, it's Tuesday the 13th that is unlucky. How ca... Read more
Thursday Thanks

I am thankful that talks with the people who want to purchase my current house went well. We came to an agreement on price quickly and I told them some things to make sure to have money for at closing since they are first-time home buyers. Time ... Read more

We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog for a PSA: Veteran's Day is not a "Happy" holiday. It is a day to be thankful for and thank any Veteran you might know. It is a day to reflect upon the need to have Veterans. To any Veteran wh... Read more

I'm not feelin' it this morning. Tired even though I got to bed on time and went right to sleep. Not looking forward to work today because I couldn't finish a small project since I didn't get all the info I needed for it and that is going to put... Read more
Monday and oops
Monday, November 09, 2020      12 comments

I didn't take my computer with me to Rockford Saturday because I didn't know I was going to spend the night, so I was much later than usual Sparking yesterday. I found the snip of blog I had started open in a tab and never posted - oops. Sp... Read more
Saturday and not working this weekend
Saturday, November 07, 2020      6 comments

Just a quick stop here - I need to get on the road to Rockford soon. I need to drop my earnest money off at the title company and my financial records off at the bank for the mortgage. Then I will stop and help my friend unpack some more and loa... Read more
Friday already?

Wow, this week went faster than usual. I took a few things over to Goodwill and saw that the oil change light came on so I took the car over to the dealer to get that done last night and walked home - a whole 3 blocks! They will call me when it'... Read more

Nothing fancy this week for Thursday. I played Jackbox games with friends last night - great stress relief from work and online, so safe gaming. I signed the contract for buying the house in Rockford last night, so I guess I'd better start ... Read more
Wednesday and We Can Work It Out
Wednesday, November 04, 2020      15 comments

I am really happy that I was able to get my bid on the new house approved. It was a counter to their counter to my original bid, but that made the final price what I was shooting for, so I am super-pleased. I already have a couple interested in ... Read more
Tuesday and please vote if you haven't already

Today is election day. If you haven't already voted and you are eligible to vote, please do. It likely won't be over tonight - several states are giving a grace period on mail-in votes due to the slow-downs at the Post Office. So long as postm... Read more

Well, I went back to the house and took a good look and measured and made sure I knew where everything would fit. Then I told my realtor to write up an offer. I am going to like living there where there are both Costco and Woodmans closer than t... Read more
Hello, November

Today's forecast: High 39F. Winds NW at 20 to 30 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph. Sure glad I don't put cardboard decorations out - they would be in another state by now. It's a grey day, too. That's OK - I don't need sunshin... Read more
Happy Halloween
Saturday, October 31, 2020      15 comments

As I sit here typing this, I can see the full moon starting to set out my front windows. A nice little bit of atmosphere for Halloween. That's all the atmosphere I will get until I go downstairs and visit my black cat who lives with my son. With... Read more
