Saturday is done and gone
Saturday, March 23, 2013      2 comments

But a day filled with many things! Up at my normal time so I was able to do one load of laundry while watching an episode of "I, Claudius" and knitting before DH woke up. The afghan moves apace. I had hoped that I would have it done by the end... Read more
Spring Break - really?!?
Thursday, March 21, 2013      1 comments

All this week I feel like I have been running as fast as I can and getting no where. That is not completely true. I have finished two large, crappy jobs at work. Not a great deal happening at home because I have had meetings/events Tues-Wed-Thu... Read more
First day of spring break

Which is great! Very few students in the building; those taking our one-week courses and the ones who are studying extra are the only ones. A goodly number of the staff on 4th floor are gone and most of the faculty. This means a very quiet bu... Read more

There was a New Fiber Venue yesterday at Vinton, IA called the Shepherds Market. It was on the grounds of the Iowa Braille School. New, lovely woolly things, of course we had to go. Only three of us were able to have the day, 4th friend was w... Read more

My little computer weather station says it is 44 degrees outside. Nice! I have only 12 more minutes before I can walk out the door.... Read more

With all my angst regarding things on my "desk" after vacation, I requested permission to get to the office early today--6am. I knew that would give me at least one hour before any of the faculty arrived in the building. I got the OK and was a... Read more
Not doing so well

My weight goes up/down/up/down. I am maintaining but I would rather it would stay put or go down. Partly it is my own fault. I need to do some maintenance on the treadmill but instead I knit. Tonight I will get that done! When I can walk, not... Read more
Cooking a goose

A number of months ago my father expressed a wish for goose. DH and I said that we would be on the look-out for one. We found one--quite expensive, or at least much more than a turkey or duck! Originally we were going to cook it for my mother'... Read more
Things that mess up my life

1. changing the time and 2. taxes. I hate screwing with time and the change moves earlier and earlier in the year to start and later and later to change back. I wish it would stay one way or the other. If you want more daylight in the sum... Read more
Tonight was all about the taxes
Friday, March 08, 2013      0 comments

DH and I spent over an hour gathering our information for taxes tonight. For the first time in years we are going to have our taxes done by a pro to see if we have been missing anything. Having to write a check to the government every year for... Read more
Seriously cold this morning

It was 6 degrees when I left the house to walk to the bus. Fortunately, no wind. I was able to get across the bridge with only minimal fogging of glasses. I do not mind the cold, as long as I am dressed for it. And I do. I lived for 2 years i... Read more
Snowy Tuesday

Taking a break at work again! Just the phrase "at work again" makes my heart sink after the last two weeks of 'freedom'. Baby's got to pay the rent somehow. Going to the bus this morning was an adventure with 4-6 inches of snow on the ground. I... Read more

I am back at work today (taking a break) after having two weeks off. It is a little hard getting back into the swing of things. Lots and lots to do. But I have managed to get 15 emails dealt with. Most of them took only 5 minutes but some were... Read more
Another successful party!

DH and I spent part of today cleaning for our booze group. Tonight's theme was weirdly named drinks. Dinner was good--potluck lasagne, salad, and ice cream and fruit for dessert. It is really fun to have this group here but I am always glad wh... Read more
Fantasy? Yeah it was fun.
Friday, March 01, 2013      0 comments

There is a local hotel (about an hour's drive) that has fantasy suites. I have always wanted to stay anywhere at a fantasy suite hotel. There are several within a day's travel of home. We finally did it last night. We stayed in the Arabian Nig... Read more
