I installed bidets in my house this weekend. 7 things to keep in mind about ’em…

I had never actually seen a bidet before and certainly never used one until now. And what do I think after three days? I am kicking myself for not learning about & installing one of these years ago! I can only imagine how much healthier & cleaner I'd have felt (and how much less toilet … Continue reading I installed bidets in my house this weekend. 7 things to keep in mind about ’em…

One thing I realized I’m thankful for during this virus-time: I live alone.

Considering how easily I get mind-numbingly bored (and you, dear readers, have bumped into a few of those posts), that might seem surprising. My kids, so to speak, are feathered, finned, or have paws and floppy ears. It hit me today, while people are so worried about their families and I'm doing all I can … Continue reading One thing I realized I’m thankful for during this virus-time: I live alone.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19

I fully credit Xena from the blog We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident for posting this one yesterday. It was a much needed laugh, but damned true, too. If you haven't seen him read this poem yet, then you've missed something short and sweet. Definitely not work friendly, though, because--you know--it's Samuel L. … Continue reading Actor Samuel L. Jackson Gives Us A Message Regarding Covid-19

Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

That may not seem like much, but I haven't had a working microwave in over three years and was totally okay with never getting one. Every one I was looking at was so damned big when I considered it before. I have plenty of counter space, but most of it isn't very deep in this … Continue reading Finally knuckled down & did something that made sense for my goals: I bought a microwave.

Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…

I have an H-E-B grocery about a dozen miles from my place. I went there on an errand when this whole mess was shutting things down (in the first waves of the Toilet Paper Wars, too). Things were orderly, and I wrote about it last week, so I won't rehash the whole weird day. I'll … Continue reading Amazing how a grocery chain can enact an emergency plan & have it’s sh** together long before the government even starts to…

Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

Thanks to Coronavirus and my workplace, I'm washing my hands far more often than ever before. I can't even use the fingerprint scanner on my phone anymore because it can't read it (unless I re-calibrate, but I'm debating on that). The one thing I heard when I first started guitar practice was the need to … Continue reading Q#127: How can you effectively create calluses for guitar practice when you constantly have to wash your hands?

In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

I had to remind myself of that. So. Damned. Many. Times. Too many. I was feeling tired, worn down, depressed, annoyed, headachy, and just trying to find something--anything--to do. I didn't wanna clean house, and it was a bit hot outside so I didn't take the dogs out right away when I got home. Rather, … Continue reading In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…

Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…

I wasn't supposed to work today, but a co-worker got hurt and couldn't walk, so I took her shift. And then, because things never stop changing in this CV crazy-world we live in right now, I got to give my input in a conference call with the owner that I didn't expect to. We have … Continue reading Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…
