2009 in pictures

It’s quiet here this morning. The falling snow has hushed the world outside. It’s a beautiful snowy day. I met a friend this morning for breakfast. Unfortunately he had to eat and run. *********** Only a few more hours and we turn the page on 2009.  We’ve had joys this year.  Ashlynn was baptized.  What a blessed joy. IContinue reading “2009 in pictures”

Everything you ever wanted to know about a Leek, but were afraid to ask

I’ve been reading this book called “French Women Don’t Get Fat”. I’ve been reading the parts I understand anyway.  It’s a bestseller and I trust that.  The author Mireille Guiliano (pronounce that if you think you’re so smart) claims leeks are magical.  Leeks.  If you’re anything like me, perhaps this will help.They’re hidden on theContinue reading “Everything you ever wanted to know about a Leek, but were afraid to ask”

Random thoughts on a Tuesday

It is Tuesday, isn’t it? The last couple of days a sickness with the ferociousness of the Egyptian plagues came through this household.  It hit Jason about 7 minutes and 34 seconds before it hit me.  I have never been more thankful for a home with two toilets.  I spent the night hugging the commode and praying for Rapture. SpeakingContinue reading “Random thoughts on a Tuesday”

Aperture what?

I got a fancy schmancy camera for Christmas.  It’s got a lot of initials and numbers on it. Things like ISO sensitivity,  and Active D-Lighting,  3.7,  1/4,  AF, AE-L, FN. These initials I savvy. WTH? I hate to be a braggart and all, but despite my lack of understanding of this photography lingo and/or settings, I can doContinue reading “Aperture what?”

Good Tidings To You

This has been a good Christmas season.  I think I’m taking a liking to it.  I’ve been a Grinch, a Scrooge, and a Humbug most of my adult life.  That started happening after I quit getting so many presents because these little despicable things called “grandchildren” entered the family and stole my thunder and my “babyContinue reading “Good Tidings To You”

Verizon: We Have a Problem

I discovered this in the bathroom trash can.  Before you judge, let me state this disclaimer.  I’m not a full fledged dumpster diver, yet.  I do know a couple people who are, who may or may not be related to me.  I don’t usually make a habit of digging in the trash, especially the bathroom,Continue reading “Verizon: We Have a Problem”

Is Manhood Declining?

I am absolutely loving the new Docker’s Campaign, Wear the Pants.  Click on over to Docker’s to read this “man-ifesto” to get an idea of all this. And to think they’re catching a little flak from all this.  People are saying this ad is sexist.  Good grief.  I love America, but sometimes I just don’t getContinue reading “Is Manhood Declining?”

Santa, his reindeer,a couple of friends & a hummingbird

I have a crafty niece.  She’s a little artist. This is her and three of her paintings last year.   And here she is with her paintings this past May. Some people have nicknamed her Hummingbird.  If you’ve ever met her, you understand why.  She’s a flitter.  Flitting here, flitting there, flitting everywhere. She doesn’t sitContinue reading “Santa, his reindeer,a couple of friends & a hummingbird”
