Started it off by getting the blood test I’m required to get quarterly (thyroid doc) a month late because of the crud… That went pretty well. I’ve only had this car since July and I’m finally learning how to work the lights…(getting there early assures a shorter wait)…
Then we had the where-is-its…
And then [...]
and Jane FINALLY (see the epic 6.5 hour struggle with Comcast…) got the new router set up.
It wasn’t glitchless, but we got it. Jane got it.
Neither she nor I is as energetic as we wish, but hey, the router does work.
Yesterday she got mulch for the new trees. WE hope this [...]
You are the first to know… 10% off all e-books and physical books until Jan 1. Free domestic shipping on all physical books until Jan 1. Foreign shipping discounted until Jan 1. [The foreign shipping discount is equal to the free domestic shipping, somewhere close to US $6.00.] Things offered by Cafe Press are not [...]
Sei is not the brightest light in catdom…so he’d have you think. Shu is. And you should be afraid…be terribly afraid.
The morning and nightly routine involves the payoff: kitty treats. PM, I call Sei, who always ‘loses it’ [oh, look, a butterfly!] when trying to pass the hall door and Feliway dispenser, to get [...]
And the pond is really, really frozen. Yesterday our two scoundrel fish-raiding cats (because of whom we have had to net the pond) were out there near the pond heater hole in the ice, and the ice was cracking under them—I watched them the entire time, really not wanting to have to run out there [...]
As in 7 and 8.
Coldest it’s been in 3-4 years.
Jane’s out tending to some shopping and getting a strand of lights to replace the dead one for the ‘woodland tree’, a little tree we hang all our wild-animal motif things on: it has frosted little round lights and one strand has bit the [...]
We got snow last night. The pond, already frozen hard and deep by a week of 20 degree weather, is white, and dark below, and we hope the fishes are well asleep.
Jane bravely got out yesterday, got the last of the juniper to the compost can, and the trash and recycling out, got [...]
It’s Black Friday (for those outside the US, that’s the orgiastic shopping sale day) and the streets are nearly deserted. We went out and took a look, and had less trouble than usual getting through the checkout lines, since the stores had massive extra help.
We did get a new tree this year, because our [...]
Because we can. It’s one of the bennies of being grownups. We not only had dessert for lunch, we had it twice, and may have it again after Thanksgiving dinner. We had pecan pie and (go figure) low carb ice cream. (well, it limits the damage!) —and will have it as often as we like [...]
join up via the Registration link and simultaneously write to me as firstname.lastname@example.org…explaining you’re a real person, and I’ll approve you in: tis the holiday shopping season, and 28 spammers showed up since last night…the spamcatcher is missing some. I have no idea how many actually tried, but I get unforgiving for anybody who has [...]
