On Tuesday, I had the A/C on, and today it was the heat. Although they've been together since they were kittens, my cats are not a bonded pair. If EJ packed his kitty bags to join the circus, Sami would not care. At some point last night,... Read more

I went to Ace Hardware to buy birdseed and was surprised to discover it was Ladies Night. Who knew? There were veggies and dip, pizza, crackers and cheese, and desserts. For those who were so inclined, there was wine. I also got a gift bag. ... Read more

I managed to mow most of the lawn this evening. It's a good thing, because it was really looking pitiful. Every time I glance down to the bottom of my computer screen I can see the temperature has dropped another degree. It is now 61 degr... Read more

To complete my continuing education, I sat through a three-hour ethics webinar this morning. The guy was interesting and entertaining, so I didn't doze off. I've been known to do that. I walk through the Marriott O'Hare's parking lot to g... Read more

I finally answered all the questions on the exam to renew my insurance producer's license. Thank goodness! At this very moment, I'm sitting next to an open window listening to the birds chirping. Although the temperatures are on the rise,... Read more

Around noon, I started weeding in the garden and worked up a sweat. Around 5:30 PM, the wind shifted, and the temperature dropped. It s now 56 degrees, and the A/C is off. Although I spend an egregious amount of money for my cable TV serv... Read more

I finally gave in and turned on the A/C. The kitties were moping around, so I did it for them. I have a friend that volunteers at an animal shelter. The dogs don't get A/C, but the cats do. I think it has to do with the transmission of virus... Read more

Our governor has been very careful about lifting mask restrictions, but, if you're vaccinated, going to the gym has gotten easier. I haven't been eager to get on a recumbent bike wearing a mask. When I work hard, I breathe through my mouth and... Read more

Although the area didn't get any rain, we sure got the humidity. A foreshadowing to summer? Gosh I hope not. As I was watching the Cubs game this evening, I started noticing that it wasn't getting any darker. The game was a rerun from th... Read more

Although it' wasn't much, we finally got enough rain to form some puddles. Maybe the grass will be green by Memorial Day. I dropped some change at the grocery store, and a guy picked up the coins for me. He said something about younger kn... Read more

The irises are blooming! They're white and yellow and rusty. I've also got three different types of purple flowers, and all bulbs have really multiplied. Since they're taking over a couple of the flower beds, I need to dig some of them out an... Read more

I went into the crawl space to read the water meter. Although it was a struggle, I managed to keep Sami from getting under the house. She is so nosy that I don't how I would have gotten her to come back to me. Next time I'll close the basemen... Read more

Until I started cutting the grass in the backyard, I didn't realize how much rain we haven't gotten. There are parts that are pretty brown, so I got done with the lawn much soon than expected. This morning was my virtual fitness class, and... Read more
