S-in-L found a Wii under the tree this year. I never saw one before last Sunday, but had heard plenty. It was GD1 who asked her Dad to take it out so they could play. She played several games, like darts and a basketball shoot. The best part for her was selecting the clothing for …

A Little Snow

Yesterday, there actually was some winter weather around here. We got ice/sleet/rain/snow on Wednesday night, creating a real mess. Yesterday morning, I spent about 2 hours shoveling what looked for all the world like a frozen margarita off our drive. It wasn’t a lot of fun, but it was good exercise. After a busy rest …

Things I can’t do anything about.

Small Job

I’ve been busy, to busy to tell you about.  But, you should know this, some maintenance jobs fall to granny, no matter  what.  Here are the tools I used :  So, now, what do you think I did with them to get this result: Of course, I cleaned the brush on the vacuum.  Really, I couldn’t push …

Another Busy Monday

We’re home, but we don’t get a bit of rest.  Papa left for work a while ago, and I’m making a list — again.  Finish laundry.  Wash and sort cucumbers, sort and can tomatoes (5 big buckets – like laundry soap comes in).  Pack clothes.  Make a couple of dishes to take.  Pack food. Buy …
