and knowledgeable. Today I was alone and I covered all the bases-life, health, crop insurance, home, farm and cars. I even dabbles in annuities. Of course, I was just doing the service work but when someone calls and needs information, t... Read more
Managing a Monday
Monday, June 20, 2016      17 comments

It was a full day of entering wind and hail claims. Houses, vehicles and crops-just a little of each but still an all day event. I had to call those who had left messages and then spend time on the computer to enter the facts as I had t... Read more
Home and garden
Sunday, June 19, 2016      14 comments

I took advantage of the day and caught up on the laundry since tomorrow the work week starts again and heaven knows what will appear to distract me. As far as the garden, the peas may come back and the swiss chard will all need to be cu... Read more
The end of the flowers
Saturday, June 18, 2016      15 comments

We had a prolonged rain, hail, and wind event that pretty much decimated the clematis, ruined my hanging baskets and scattered leaves and branches throughout town. We lost electricity for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. DH had baked a pound cake and ... Read more

The secretary for SIL's home office came today and we worked through some of the new program. We cleaned up a few entries and I learned how to compress the information so it is more precise. She and I get along very well. DH and I spen... Read more
Still have all my brain cells
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      15 comments

They had quite a workout today but it was all good. At times, I even felt slightly superior to the new computer. But I was cheating somewhat. When it didn't want to advance, I went back to the old standby and finished the project. Now su... Read more
A little bit of shopping
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      15 comments

I have mentioned several times how my shopping excursions are planned, precise and intense. I allow myself 2 hours, total, to drive, shop and then drive hour. If you subtract the driving time, I allow myself one hour to find what I need... Read more
Taking a Spark break, of sorts
Monday, June 13, 2016      19 comments

I am finding that the office is consuming so much of my energy, the garden and flowers need constant care, DS is being a real pain and the GF even more so. I will track as always but may not expend the time to post as many messages as I ... Read more
One last day of heat
Sunday, June 12, 2016      13 comments

The cool front moved through later this afternoon. I took the chance to plant the bedding plants when that side of the house was in the shade. The temperature was still 99 but I watered everything when I was done and the flowers look lik... Read more
Sizzling Saturday
Saturday, June 11, 2016      15 comments

The temperature climbed to over 100, depending on who you talked with today. DH had a fairly successful day at the farmers market and used the umbrella to stay out of the sun. He even had water to drink and I was glad he did. I did lau... Read more
Farmers Market update

I will be sending DH off with 21 pints of strawberries, swiss chard, asparagus, fluffy lettuce, romaine, plus his eggs. We just now finished getting everything in packages and it is bedtime. I should sleep really good tonight. The heat i... Read more
The heat is on!

95 degrees today with a heat index of 101. Guess it really is summer. We had to water all the tender plants in the garden again tonight. Some didn't look great but seems they all survived. Spent about an hour spading the flowerbeds ... Read more
BYOB

When working in the garden or taking a walk- bring your own bottle. I try to make it a point to grab a water bottle for time at the acreage, but DH forgets or doesn't think to take any water along. So, guess who gets to share. Now, I... Read more
Since GF was a no-show
Tuesday, June 07, 2016      16 comments

I had at least 5 phone calls from her and DH had at least 3. What a pain. I told her not to call me at work and then she calls DH and wonders why he hung up on her. At 9 pm. she expects DS to drive down to have dinner with her and then d... Read more
