Through Thick or Thin(ner): Next Steps and Missteps

Click for source

So far so good. My announcement earlier this week has garnered support and encouragement. Thanks, guys, you rock! I have to admit that I’m feeling a mild panic along the lines of “Oh boy, what have I done? Couldn’t keep my mouth shut, could I?” Well, that was the point, wasn’t it: declare my intentions to eat healthy and exercise, thereby obliging myself to follow through. Fine. What’s next?

Dearly Departed

Oliver aka Ollie-bum.

Yesterday, I saw neighbour South tromp across our rear yard, toward the north. “Hey, Mister!” I hollered, “You lost or something?” He acknowledged me distractedly, “Did you hear about Ollie?” Uh, oh. It turns out Ollie did not come in for breakfast last Saturday. That makes two cats gone this year. First Keira vanished in April, and now her brother Oliver. Poor South. He took me by the hand to show […]

Through Thick or Thin(ner): The Series

It’s time for a slight departure here on the blog. My aim is twofold. Wait, maybe threefold. Perhaps more. Oh I dunno, who’s counting? Anyway, the number of folds aside, it’s time for a change. Back story: I paid a visit to my new MD last month. First thing he did was take my blood pressure. He used a magic machine that took six readings, eliminated the first and last, […]

I Got Nothing.

As it turned out, there was only one layer of paper of one layer of paint over lath and plaster. That seems rather remarkable for a 130-year old house.

Try as I might I cannot cobble together a post that is worthy of your time. I cannot summon whatever it is that I need to summon. There is no news. Nothing worthy of the pixels. At least, I think there is nothing worthy. It’s not for lack of trying. Twice now I’ve started a post about the wallpapering project. Twice I’ve abandoned same. I get part way through trying […]

Interior Decorating – the Stars are Aligned

Very similar to our home office. Two stations and a cast iron frog paperweight.

My weekly horoscope: Aries (March 21-April 19) You will swing your focus to home, family and your private life for the next month. This will manifest in several ways, depending on the details of your own life. For starters, it makes you want to focus on your home more than usual. You might want to cocoon at home and sort of “hide.” However, for many of you, this focus on […]

Tuesday is Seniors Day

“Tuesday is Seniors’ Day at Rexall,” my husband said. “You are a senior now, you know.” “What?!” “Yeah, you’ve been a senior for four years.” “I don’t want to talk about it,” I grumbled. “What’s the problem? It’s 20% off! The money is better in your pocket than theirs!” I harrumphed, my default response when he is right. Reiner is not the only one to remind me of my status […]

United States Defaults On Debt To Its Veterans

Originally posted on The End:
If a nation cannot afford to tend to the physical and psychological wounds suffered by its soldiers in war, then that nation simply cannot afford to go to war. Such is the current situation in the United States. And it is beyond shameful. The amount of money we commit to spending on new weapons systems is measured in the trillions. Yet somehow, Congress cannot manage…
