This is my very last minute entry to Evil Squirrel’s Fourth Annual Contest of Whatever. It will be thrown together willy nilly to try to beat that noon CST deadline. I hope. I’m not really awake enough to work out what time that is in PST where I am! The main rule for the contest… Continue reading It Takes a Village – An Episode of Shelf Critter Theatre
Where have the past few months gone? It seems like just a few days ago that I watched the squirrels investigate the jack-0-lantern I recruited Don to carve for them. They immediately decided to “customize” their pumpkin. They chewed the tooth halfway off and made the mouth larger. Then their investigations got a little more invasive!… Continue reading Happy Hallo…er, New Year!
I can’t believe another week has already gone by! I’m glad this one is over though. It’s the week we’ve been dreading for months because Daniel, my 16-year-old, was scheduled for oral surgery to remove a cyst in his gums this past Tuesday. He came through surgery fine but woke up the next morning with… Continue reading Happy Friday!
I am still here, still overwhelmed with baseball games, cat messes, fatigue and all-over body aches. The squirrels are still here too and have become quite bold about sneaking in the house to look for peanuts. Day before yesterday, one got a little sidetracked and walked under my chair when I was sitting at the dining… Continue reading Sharing My World – Week 28

Even under the best circumstances, baseball is a huge inconvenience. Washing stained white pants several times per week, having to feed Daniel before and after the game and somehow cook… Continue reading Kirkland – There are worse places to be!

Such is life when you’re the mother of boys….*sigh* I also loved the interior of the… Continue reading Romaine Calm
Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re having summer in April. It was 91 degrees at my house on Monday. 91! In April! That never happens here. We’ve been breaking heat records all over the place the past three days. I’m sure some people are loving it. I’m not. I can feel my summer depression, which… Continue reading Sharing My World – Week 16
As I work on adjusting my daily schedule to keep up on things at home, accomplish my goals and make time for the things I want to do, I find myself struggling to keep up with blogging. I’m feeling terribly overwhelmed by the ever growing number of posts in my reader and I know I’ve missed… Continue reading How Do You?
This morning I got up really excited to start my day. I’ve been following the Flat Belly Diet for three weeks and today was my weigh in day. I thought I would get on the scales and finally my weight would be below a certain dreadful number. It wasn’t. For all my dieting and exercising, I… Continue reading This Week
A few days ago, the plant people in my clematis appeared to be dancing, probably to welcome the spring season after their long winter slumber. The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance
