My Pets Hate Me

Day 46 Well, all the little fat birds are dead.  I had one more left after the massacre earlier this week, but I walked into the kitchen today and saw this little guy laying on the floor. There were flower petals covering the living room rug and multiple picture frames were laying face down on […]

Lovely Little Moments

Day 44 For the first time in several weeks, I got the urge to organize and clean some things today.  I don’t want to give the impression that I cleaned out closets or junk drawers.  Nothing that elaborate!  Let’s not get crazy! I cleaned off the kitchen table.  I know, that doesn’t sound very ambitious.  […]

Keep On Keeping On

Day 43 Another Monday.  I took a long weekend from writing the blog. I wrote other places, but didn’t really have anything fit for public consumption to say here.  The weekend was OK. I made my weekly trip to the grocery store to pick up my order.  I even braved another store, while wearing a […]

I Miss Reading

Day 37 Every year I set a reading goal. I put it on Goodreads so that I can hold myself accountable. Two years ago, it was 30 books. Last year it was 40 books.  I achieved both of those goals. This year, I decided to really challenge myself and try to read a book a […]

How Fast Can You Pedal?

Day 36 And it is the start of Week 6 at home. That is a very strange thing to write; at times it feels that long and at others it doesn’t seem quite that long. It feels long, but six weeks sounds crazy. This weekend was beautiful and warm.  It was also really windy. I […]

Good Grief

Day 33 We were “blessed” with about 10 inches of snow overnight. Which promptly melted in the 50 degree temperatures of the rest of the day. The Governor announced the end of the school year – at least in an actual school today.  We, parents, are required to finish out the learning year at home. […]

Full Of Whine

Day 32 Did you notice I didn’t post yesterday? Probably not, because every day seems like the day before and all of these just run together. I really am running out of things to say – which, for me, is very troubling. I never run out of things to say! Our internet service is not […]

Breakfast and Boredom

Day 27 Another weekend. Have I mentioned the weekends are the hardest? Looks like, yes, I did – last weekend. I will reiterate – the weekends are the hardest. The lack of plans gets to me. Not that we had a lot of weekend plans before this, but we always COULD have weekend plans. So, […]

Covid19 Playlist

Day 24 Good morning, friends.  I hope you are doing well today!  Today I’m bringing you a little gift I made. I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but the titles to all of the blog entries I’ve posted since starting this Covid19 journal have been the titles to songs.  Everyday, I tried to find […]

I’m Henry VIII, I Am

Day 23 Second verse…same as the first…I’m Henry the 8th, I am, Henry the 8th, I am, I am!  Sorry, this song has been in my head all day.  Along with the idea that I never really enjoyed the movie Groundhog Day because it seemed very depressing – despite the humor of Bill Murray!  I’ve […]
