How curbside grocery service might just save my (turkey) bacon in the long run…

I actually used curbside service at the grocery store three times so far, and I'd never intended to. The first time was because I had to take my dogs to the vet and I thought driving all the way to town for that, only to return home to drop them off and then drive all … Continue reading How curbside grocery service might just save my (turkey) bacon in the long run…

Oddly, I actually ended up eating dinner WITH my parakeets…

I just started working out again this week (not overdoing it because of congestion and such, and besides, it's hotter than hell out there), and also keeping a food journal. I had a rough start last week and decided to start over yesterday. I just ended up half-asleep this afternoon (benadryl sucks) and did my … Continue reading Oddly, I actually ended up eating dinner WITH my parakeets…

I figured I’d take my time & wing the to-do list the past two days… & boy, I got lost.

I'm trying not to giggle while The Pixies' song "Where is My Mind?" goes off in my head. Because I have no clue what the hell happened the past two days while I was at home. I do remember getting a few things from the store, some really crappy eating choices, and then a bunch … Continue reading I figured I’d take my time & wing the to-do list the past two days… & boy, I got lost.

I forgot what a full (& productive) day felt like, til now.

I'm trying to figure out how it happened. Other than a quick go early this morning online to do a few basic things for my gaming team to get points, I got started with my day. I think I only touched YouTube most of the day to put some stuff on for noise come mid … Continue reading I forgot what a full (& productive) day felt like, til now.

I can’t believe February’s almost half-done, & time for some frantic garden prep…

I spent the past day getting all my garden seeds together, and all day today planning what to grow in the coming months. I didn't expect it to take so long, but it was because of the same reasons that always get me in projects like this: impatience, enthusiasm, curiosity, and over-estimating my abilities. I … Continue reading I can’t believe February’s almost half-done, & time for some frantic garden prep…

The annoying war against vermin has resumed…

I should have known that while I was trying to keep things cleaner in the house and fixing the holes that animals could exploit in my sandy foundation pad the past few days, I would find myself confronting an old creepy menace: mice. As usual, it started with wings flapping and my birds freaking out … Continue reading The annoying war against vermin has resumed…

Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

I've been offline the past several days because I had a hard time concentrating through the pain. I hated it because I wanted to read posts and catch up on what has been happening. Well, some interesting things helped knock my migraines and eye pain out, things I didn't expect. When I couldn't stand looking … Continue reading Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

I'm checking the weather report about tomorrow. My dogs had some "pup-kin pie," the filling that didn't fit in the pie shells that I poured into Pyrex bowls to cook separately (they were so happy). I'd planned to make baked potatoes for over a week and had some veggies I needed to use up, so … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

One positive result of the COVID-19 pandemic: I don’t have to invent new excuses to duck out of Thanksgiving invites this year…

I feel like an asshole for admitting it, but with cases surging and gathering sizes being limited--again--I don't have to concern myself with making up reasons to avoid going to other people's homes for Thanksgiving. I'm not so in awe of turkey that I only eat it on certain days and I'm about to make … Continue reading One positive result of the COVID-19 pandemic: I don’t have to invent new excuses to duck out of Thanksgiving invites this year…

Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.

And by surgical procedure, I mean anything that puts you out entirely with anesthetic. I've had locals shot into my mouth to make it easier to fix fillings or yank out teeth (my dentist has probably made a small fortune off my mouth). I've been to a few specialists about my core area issues (digestive … Continue reading Never had a surgical procedure done before… boring & interesting in turns.
