Quick Week In Review

November 21, 2020  •  3 Comments
It was a pretty non-eventful week here and ya know, that's just okay. Work and rest and well, rinse and repeat pretty much. I was able to get out and walk every day although a couple days it required getting out as early as we could to try to avoid the mud. At least with the snowy roads I can put on my micro spikes and walk, mud not so much and so...

Firewood, Snow, Mud, Walks, The Week That Was

November 15, 2020  •  1 Comment
Am feeling a little more human every day so this week I did get some things done. Not as much as I want but I've decided that I'm going to honor what my body is telling me and if it says to rest I will. Still dogs want to be fed and house needs to be picked up and well, work (yuck). Priority now is to destress and yes, ye ol blood pressure cuff cam...

That 2 Weeks Flew By

November 07, 2020  •  4 Comments
...and here we are in November already. Yes we survived that snow storm and I am very happy to report my truck is back in the garage where it should be and I am NOT shoveling that stupid driveway again! To Far Side, you know I've thought about one of those shovels and may just have to consider it. In fact I think it was one of your blogs that put m...

Shovel Break

October 25, 2020  •  4 Comments
Yup because as I said earlier this year - Mother Nature is just pissed off with us! That little skiff we had last week - was nothing! I took a long weekend from work this weekend and even though the weatherman kept saying we were to get snow Wednesday, it came and went - nothing, then Thursday came and went - nothing. Yeah it was just building up...

Weird Few Weeks

October 22, 2020  •  5 Comments
But I will say generally things seem to finally be looking up compared to the previous weeks. That said, I am excluding THIS! Yeah it sucks and even more so the predictions for below 0F coming in the next few days. BOOOOOO! We normally have a cold snap and snow on Halloween but this is 2 weeks early! What the heck. Regardless the fire fighters wil...

I am probably dating myself saying that. Anyone else remember that term or used it? On the topic of "sour" this past Spring I decided to try my hand at sourdough. Something I'd never done before. Off to the internet I went looking for recipes for starter. What a rabbit hole that was! Not only that but finding yeast or even flour during the hording...

Chilly Chores

October 13, 2020  •  2 Comments
Those of you that live "north" understand the long list of "getting ready for winter" chores. Mine have been rolling along with the packing up of the patio furniture (still to be tarped) and gradually the moving of items on the front deck (swing, dog beds, rugs) but with the exception of the grill which I'm not ready or willing to give up at this p...

Rough Week and Facebook is GONE

October 10, 2020  •  2 Comments
What a poopy week, even though the weather has been lovely and my wonderful brother has helped me knock off a number of projects, it still ended with a BOMB! So let's review the GOOD stuff. A friend of mine has moved and had fencing that she offered to me that is like what I have in my front yard. I decided that would look mucho better than the e...

Fall Splendor

October 07, 2020  •  3 Comments
My last trip for the year with my brother was great fun (I am so going to miss him). We took off to do a bit more campground recon and just see some Fall colors. We got both done and were home in time to feed my hooligans (and he treated me to steak he BBQd for dinner as well). Win Win. This trip only included poodle 4 legs and Epic as you'll tell...

Bye Bye September

October 04, 2020  •  1 Comment
Actually what a MONTH (or is that what a YEAR?). I can say I am not sad to see September gone. With the exception of vacation, work has been horrid, stuff at home has sucked and I am starting now to feel the pressure to get things buttoned up for winter. My tree out front is really dropping leaves and while it is warm I'm trying to get trees watere...
