happy…two days after Christmas…

December 27, 2020

yeah, it was a blur. too much waiting til the last minute, too much “this won’t take long” and so Christmas eve day and Christmas were nonstop cleaning/cooking/wrapping/other crazy xmas stuff. Yesterday I barely, just barely even got off the couch at all. I just looked through my photos and have some from november that […]

Mostly Riley in October

October 31, 2020

First, to clarify – my last post had a photo of Kevin on the sailboat wearing a lovely lavender t-shirt from bev and wrote that she got it for bowling. yesterday she informed me that she’d bought a bunch of them for a line-dancing performance she did last September, and had given Kevin and me […]

ricocheting from one thing to the next…

October 24, 2020

i can’t say why i’ve been so productive lately. On Friday it was, indeed, really warm outside and I dug up most of my gerbera daisies but when i was done putting them in pots i realized i’d missed a small one and decided that enough was enough, and that one poor little flower could […]

October 6, 2020

…are a few photos from september. I love this picture so much, Lovey sitting in front of my pelican/goose collection. Shortly after that she sprawled out on the floor so relaxed, at least for a moment. And then totally content! it didn’t last long, but she frequently spends at least a little time in the […]

Wrapping up July, mostly with kitties…

September 11, 2020

We went out on the boat yet again on July 16th and went farther into the infamous “hot ditch” next to the power plant than i’d ever been. usually there are plenty of fishing boats because the water is so warm there but since it was a week day, nobody else was around. a short […]

As the summer slips by…

August 16, 2020

So, July…well, here’s a few photos from the beginning of the month. First, Riley. in June I posted a photo of Riley in my re-purposed my clothes basket , which was so long ago…Riley still enjoys climbing inside sometimes.

at the start of april…

May 4, 2020

these two ducks were enjoying the bird seed scattered on the ground in back of the house. Riley had no interest in them at all. Kevin bought this remote for the upstairs TV. we probably won’t lose it. it’s funny, we’ve only ever had one TV, but he hooked up a small monitor that works […]

May 1, 2020

Yeah, pretty lame that i’m just doing this now. same excuse as before; it’s now 11:30 on this sunny friday morning and at least i’m out of my jammies, but only just. lots of time spent reading reading reading about the coronavirus; the latest news is that it could be here for 18 months to […]
