I finally got to the pile of papers I had been ignoring, and I can see the entire top of the kitchen table. I gathered up all the cat toys that had been batted around the living room. Those kitties sure have a lot of stuff. At Christmas, ... Read more

In January of 2018, all the windows were replaced , and central A/C was installed. I have baseboard hot water heat, so there was no existing duct work. That was the reason I had relied on a window unit instead of central air. It would have be... Read more

When I came home from work, it was much warmer than it was this morning. At 9:30 PM, I went outside to top off the bird feeder, and, oh boy, the temperature definitely risen even higher. Yikes! I'm glad the kitties and I have A/C. My den... Read more

We got a bit of rain today, and the weeds came out without a lot of digging. Since everything else was waiting to be washed, I wore my denim shorts for the first time this season in the backyard and out of sight. They're comfortable. ... Read more

My body told me not to go to the gym today. For a change, I listened. When I got home last night, I was wiped out, so I decided it was best to rest. It was a wise choice. I think the story made national news If not, an alligator was spo... Read more

This afternoon I made Sunset Soup. I used yellow and Roma tomatoes that I had in the freezer from last year's harvest, fresh dill from the garden, and homemade vegetable broth. The carrots and onion came from the store. ... Read more

We have gotten so much rain that I never thought I would be dragging out the garden hose, but I think it's time. There is a major upside to the drier weather; I didn't have to mow the lawn. Getting my annuals in the ground has been a major... Read more

I had another fun but exhausting morning at the gym. Taking a nice, warm, fragrant shower is definitely one of life's little pleasures. Following it up with body spray and lotion is heavenly. It also makes the bathroom smell great. ... Read more

I've never been a fan of having my picture taken, so I was always the one taking the photos. Since my camera of choice is an SLR, it is intimidating enough that my friends don't want to try using it. When we said our goodbyes to Susanne, a gro... Read more

I made the grocery store cashier very happy. The guy in line in front of me needed $.02 to keep her from having to break a dollar bill. He had no change, but I did. I gave her the $.02 and got a thank you from everyone. I was given a bir... Read more

At the end of January, it was 23 degrees below zero at O'Hare. Today, the highest temperature was 99 degrees. That's quite a range. Clearly, we Midwesterners have to be rough and tough and hard to bluff. ... Read more

The weather is about to change again, so I made sure to get outside to enjoy the relatively pleasant temperatures. There are always weeds to pull. I thought it was going to take longer to get home this evening, but the trains were running ... Read more

My intention was to mow just the front yard, but I got the grass in the back too. I used a gift card I got at Christmas to buy a Subway sandwich. They're actually pretty good. It's been awhile, but I finally managed to get the dishes ... Read more
