Holiday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 11:30pm in Blog, Car Issues, Entertainment, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]

Happy Birthday Mika!

Posted by miss m on Friday, April 27, 2012 @ 12:30pm in Family, Holidays, kitties, Photography and Pics |

Of course, I don’t really know Mika’s real birthday, but April 27th is her adoption day so it’s the day I celebrate her birthday. This year makes her approximately 12. (Again, because she was an adult cat when we adopted her, we have to guesstimate based on what her info said from the SPCA.) Happy […]

Happy Leap Day!

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 @ 2:10pm in Blog, General Blather, Holidays |

Couldn’t resist making an entry for today since it’s not often you get a “February 29th” date stamp on your blog. 😉 I really don’t have anything terribly interesting to actually post about; it’s just another Wednesday other than the once-every-four-years date. But since it is a once-every-four-years date, I’m making a post anyway. Hope […]

Love’s Birthday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, February 20, 2012 @ 12:31am in Family, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Sickness and Health Issues, Walt Disney World |

Valentine’s Day evening was when I first realized I was sick. And I spent the next few days just in the typical, miserable fog of a cold. By Friday, I finally felt like the worst of it was over. With Love’s birthday coming up the following day, I ran an errand to the store to […]

Surprise Birthday Party (With Unexpected Surprises)

Posted by miss m on Monday, January 30, 2012 @ 5:33pm in Family, General Blather, Holidays, Sickness and Health Issues |

All last week we were covertly working with Love’s Dad to get supplies and make arrangements for a surprise birthday party for Love’s Mom. Ever since last June when Love’s Dad had all his medical issues (his gallbladder ruptured, he went septic, was in a coma and had a quadruple bypass), he doesn’t drive anymore. […]

Christmas Recap

Posted by miss m on Friday, December 30, 2011 @ 12:53pm in Family, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Photography and Pics |

In the excitement of getting my ring, I haven’t even talked about anything else from Christmas yet. We got up at 6am. Took our turkey out of the brine we had it in overnight. (Using, of course, Alton Brown’s recipe.) Got it prepped and in the oven. Then, we did out Christmas gift exchange since […]

Christmas Eve

Posted by miss m on Saturday, December 24, 2011 @ 6:40pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Holidays, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Shopping is done. Presents are wrapped. All the bills are paid and there’s even a little left in the bank. Life’s not too bad, especially given how insurmountable it all looked a few short months ago. We’ll start the turkey brine as soon as I post this. Tomorrow morning, we cook the 20lb bird, have […]

Too Warm!

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 @ 11:11am in General Blather, Holidays, Weather |

The warm weather is depressing me. It’s just been too damned warm this December. The historic average should be about 71F (22C) this time of year but it’s running about 80F (27C) instead. How can you feel “Christmasy” when it’s 80 damned degrees outside and you’re in shorts and a tee? Still got the A/C […]

Christmas Village Kitty Invasion

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 19, 2011 @ 11:12am in General Blather, Holidays, kitties, Photography and Pics |

I get up this morning and walk to the kitchen to get a drink of water. As I walk back, I glance at the tree. Then I do a double-take because something catches my eye. (click for larger) …is that? Yes, it’s a little Gracie cat curled up in a little kitty ball, snuggled in […]

Hectic Holiday

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 19, 2011 @ 2:26am in Finances, General Blather, Holidays, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Busy, busy, busy! I just haven’t had time for much lately online including the blog. Working hard on last-minute shop sales, running to the post office every day to mail out completed orders, trying to get the last of our own holiday shopping and such done, normal household errands to run, and I still have […]
