A January Saturday

Some days the clouds in your thoughts seem to lift. Other days, it seems the best activity is to find a nice blankie, hide your face, and take a nap. Then, you’ll feel like eating, of course, upon awaking.  At … Continue reading

New Year, New Me?

The other day Pig-farmer asked me if I had made my resolutions.  At that time, I was delighting in post-Christmas quiet while pouring myself a mug of coffee.  I gave him my very best, scariest, don’t-mess-with-me look.  What the heck? I mean, … Continue reading

We never know what is possible if we don’t try.

The rains have passed and now the sun + moisture + humidity make it feel like a sauna.  I have never understood why people pay good money to sit in a sauna.  If you grow up on a farm, there … Continue reading

Tis the Season to Be Behind!

Family that are friends (my favorite type of family). Friends that are family. Clowning with my boys. A little respect for a former co-student that went pro. Throw a college graduation in the weekend before Christmas … and, well, I … Continue reading

Photo Friday, Update and Christmas Prep

The sore trapezius (muscle between shoulder/neck) persists, but I think is slowly, oh-so-slowly, getting better.  I’ve avoided much typing and limited time on the computer.  I think that aggravates it.  Texting, too.  Posture, posture, posture! Pig-farmer has been gone most of … Continue reading
