Thank goodness it’s frozen pizza Friday! Yay, it’s Friday! And I don’t have to cook because Friday is pizza night at my house. Although this was a short week due to Labor Day being Monday, it feels like it was a really, really long week. Daniel went back to school on Wednesday and we once… Continue reading T.G.I.F.P.F.
I enjoyed last Friday’s ramble so much I decided to do it again! It’s nearly 11:00 in the morning. The sun has been up for over four hours but you wouldn’t know it by looking out the window. It’s very dark today and raining pretty hard. It feels like the seasonal switch has flipped to… Continue reading Another Friday Ramble
Yesterday was another hot day and I wasn’t the only one around here that wasn’t happy about it. Trouble and Scooby both glared at me all day, like it was my fault it was hot. The glare I was getting from Trouble in the above photo could have been because I accidentally sprayed him with… Continue reading Friday Ramblings
Too hot? Imagine yourself walking into the air conditioned interior of Ivar’s Seafood Bar in Mukilteo where they advertise cold and clammy conditions. Or, imagine yourself walking down a street in Everett on a cloudy day with the cool marine air blowing right off the water (keep your wallet close though, because Everett is kind of sketchy).… Continue reading This Way to Cool
There are people that love a hot summer day and there are those that would take 18 degrees over 80 any day of the year. Well, maybe I’m the only one who loves weather THAT cold. But there are others who hate the heat of summer. My wooly friend, Trouble, sure doesn’t like it. And who can… Continue reading Some Hate It Hot
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!
A few evenings ago, my husband and I were sitting on the deck talking when I happened to notice movement in the trees next to the deck. I looked over to discover that we were being watched. A squirrel was perched in a branch next to the deck. It looked really cute hugging the tree branch so… Continue reading Watcher in the Woods
It’s August already, can you believe it? I’ve been feeling conflicted ever since I changed the calendar and realized that we’re in the 8th month of the year. On the one hand, I’m always glad July is over, as July is my least favorite month. Although our weather was very pleasant for July, July makes… Continue reading Sharing My World – Week 31
Yesterday I found a very odd thing on the trail next to my house: a pile of unrolled Christmas wrapping paper. I was puzzled. Why? How? Is this what they kids are doing these days instead of toilet papering things? Are they like, “hee hee, let’s sneak over to Jim’s house and unroll wrapping paper?”… Continue reading Odd Neighborhood Crimes
Last week I was so excited to learn that Cee of Cee’s Photography is bringing back her Which Way Photo Challenge. I always enjoyed this challenge, partly because I have trouble remembering themes and this one is always the same and partly because I’m fascinated by how roads, paths and trails can look so inviting… Continue reading Ribbons of Light
