That is how long I have been away from the office. May 9 was the day I was frog-marched out of my office and not allowed to return to get any of my things. According to the letter I should have been back to work on 2 June but with my mother's f... Read more

This is my last day of "freedom"; I go back to the office tomorrow morning. Back to eight hours a day in front of a computer. DB and I spent yesterday with a short, half-day trip and running errands. As of this morning I have written the last th... Read more
Mom's Funeral

In approximately 60 minutes I will leave to start the day. The minister wants family at the church by 8:30am. I estimate I will be home by 3pm. Long, stressful day. When I get home I will put my massage mat on the chair and use it for a double r... Read more

Today is the visitation/wake for my mother. DB is going to arrive at approximately mid-way with good coffee as well as provide an escape for a half-hour or so. There is a small park in my mother's town that we are going to go to and walk for a b... Read more

DB and I again went for an early (out of the house by 5:15am) morning walk at a local walking park. We were only a few blocks from our house when I spotted a doe and very tiny fawn in a front yard. On the way to the park we saw another deer. Wal... Read more
Early morning sighting!

This morning I woke up 30 minutes early. Since DB had his light on and was reading I suggested an early morning walk. We drove to a nearby recreation area that has a 2-mile path around a small lake. Very nice, crisp morning with fog rising from ... Read more

It all started with a phone call at 6:15am. My Mother had died in her sleep. I was so glad that I spent the evening with her yesterday. 31 May 2016 would have been my parents 65th wedding anniversary and I did not want her to think it was forgot... Read more
4 Buns and a Coon
Tuesday, May 31, 2016      0 comments

Walking this morning the yards were filled with rabbits. As I watched one bun run up the hill to a back yard there was a raccoon walking down the hill. My immediate thought was how fast I could run if it were rabid! It seemed rather late in the ... Read more

Sunday morning-the pilots and knitters group meet! Some of the knitters are pilots and the non-knitting pilots are also mechanics. One is in process of taking apart and putting together his plane for the annual check of everything. He hopes to h... Read more
Sleeping bags

We now have all the sleeping bags washed! Spent the morning at the laundromat, with the huge washers, and at Farmer's Market. I am feeling more caught up with things. The bags are draped over my drying racks in the basement as they would be dama... Read more

Today will be a long day, with not much knitting. In a few minutes DB and I are leaving to go to the next county seat. I need to return my father's handicapped placards (deceased) and get one for my mother. DB found an interesting little place f... Read more
Rain, chance of Rain, Big Thunder!

This morning it was raining again, this time with thunder, no walk outside. Need to power up the treadmill. Instead I took a sleeping bag to the laundromat to use a huge drum washer. My washer at home is too small and could damage the bag with t... Read more
Tuesday morning not walk

It is raining so I am not walking. I was up earlier than normal this morning because I woke up a little after 4am. When I realized that I was not going to be able to go back to sleep I just got up and was ready for the day, with coffee made, bef... Read more
Monday morning walk

I overslept so my walk was not as long. I made up for less walking time by more verticals. Going up is always OK but coming down I am starting to feel more in my knees. Some days all is well and some days they are a little cranky. This morning w... Read more
Missed Yesterday
Saturday, May 21, 2016      0 comments

But I was still walking, even longer. I have a bad case of 'startits'. Heading into the stash room to clear out sleeping bags I saw a bag of discontinued yarn that was given to me. Instead of dealing with the sleeping bags I went on Ravelry to ... Read more
