Deck

Deck

Not much going on with me. Been reading, working on files, and watching Outer Range on Prime. Did some laundry and watered plants. Saturday, I helped my sister put her new bed frame together. Exciting, huh? Today started (and is ending) sunny, so the deck guys worked. They got the front steps and about 3/4 of the floor done.

Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts

Our house is tucked in on the east side of a hill in such a way that we get only mild winds, usually. There have been storms where our trees barely moved, yet once off our little street there is plenty of evidence of a serious wind storm. Right now there is heavy pouring rain. Our trees are moving only in response to the downpour. (And the sun peeked out as I wrote that sentence!) In the distance the trees…

Sunday, Sunday

Sunday, Sunday

Poetry is now live. Actually, there were a couple of poems there for a while now, but I added two more. Wall Yesterday I got to the little wall I mentioned on Friday. I didn’t have enough bricks, so we’ll be headed back to Lowe’s tomorrow. The near end (bottom) needs to be three bricks tall, I think, to about where it ends (top) now. Then it should be two down to one. Maybe. Iqbal likes it so much that he…

Where Did My Day Go?

Where Did My Day Go?

I think my good mood went with it. I spent the whole afternoon making a WIP/UFO page. It’s in the side bar. However, it is by no means complete. ⬆️That’s all I wrote on April 10. I’ve forgotten now what interrupted me, as well as what I was going to say. Obviously, it wasn’t really important. I’ve been doing practically no stitching, which makes me sad, but other things keep jumping ahead. Mostly it’s been the machine embroidery files. I…

An ADDy Day

An ADDy Day

An ADDy Day Does it make a difference to anyone other than me whether all the letters are capitalized or not? I miss my old blog. I wish they had remained more user friendly. I had total html control. I didn’t have size limitations. I didn’t have “Blocks.” If I wrote poetry, it wasn’t shaded gray. I could change fonts. I could make tables with any background I want. ::sigh:: Why did everything get bigger?? I don’t want it to…

A Sunny Day with Rain

A Sunny Day with Rain

This is just a few seconds. The rain itself lasted only a few minutes. I love this kind of rain. And it wasn’t raining in the backyard. I finally got all my Christmas decorations put away. Well, boxed and ready to put on the shelves. I wondered why I took so long, but I think it’s because I knew that Iqbal does not understand the sentimental value of the decorations, and sure enough, I found some that were broken, and…

Oh! My! Goodness!

Oh! My! Goodness!

It’s pretty rare when my excitement meter explodes. Actually, I can’t remember the last time it happened. Until today. Everything started out normal. The only excitement was that the 2022 MLS season opened today and Portland had a game on TV at 5 pm. Fun, but hardly meter exploding. At halftime Iqbal decided to go get our dinner. I expected him home about fifteen minutes into the second half (60th minute). At the 75th minute, I started to think he’d…

02-22-22 It has been sunny, today, but I haven’t been. The lyrics to Rainy Days and Mondays come to mind. Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old Sometimes I’d like to quit Nothin’ ever seems to fit Hangin’ around Nothin’ to do but frown . . . What I’ve got they used to call the blues Nothin’ is really wrong Feelin’ like I don’t belong Walkin’ around Some kind of lonely clown . . . This totally fits me. More so…

It Was a Dark and Stormy Day

It Was a Dark and Stormy Day

Not today. The sun is out today. Yesterday the rain poured down and, off and on all week, it’s been grim and cloudy. Since I am most definitely solar powered, that means my energy level hovered around “0” and I didn’t get much done. 😢 Timbers made it to the playoffs, but, alas, did not win. They played in that pouring rain. They made an exciting goal in the final 15 seconds to tie the game, but it ended up…

Not Much

Not Much

I was going to post photos of me in 2011 and 2021, but the older photos are not on Flickr or my computer. I am assuming they are either on my other computer or on a disk. I need to write in the morning, I think. My son called. I love talking to him. We converse about things no one else either of knows talks about. But we talked about two hours and whatever I was planning to write is…
