Wandering Wednesday Words

I've been alone today.  All day.  In fact, I don't think I talked to anyone after the Chairman and the children went off to work and school.  Well actually, I talked to the dog on our walk, but she only grasps her name and the few basic commands.  So I have some words floating in my head.  Speaking of the dog.  She caught a rabbit the other day while I was gone.  How do I know?  Well all that was left was the head, shoulders and two tiny little paws in the front.  The rest was just plain gone.  In her belly I reckon.  Ick.  Have the house nearly to a 'ting' today.  We have our turn at the rotation tonight.  Special friends coming for a special reason.  I love having a turn for many reasons.  One not so important one is that it causes me to clean some things I don't ordinarily.  Like the toaster oven window.  Now really.  Do you think anyone is going to do a white-glove test on that?  Of course not.  But it makes me feel better.  I ordered new bedding for our bedroom.  Was a good sale on-line.  In just a few days the doorbell rings and here they are!  I nervously showed them to the Chairman and... he like them!  I've been doing more and more on-line purchases.  So many companies offer free shipping.  You can price-shop.  I found a new griddle that we really needed for $20 less than I could in a local store.  Plus I could read lots of reviews to know which one was best (making the Chairman very, very proud of me).  And... we like it!  I wish we could hang sheets here.  You see this neighborhood isn't all that keen on fences.  Or clotheslines.  So I've been doing it makeshift in the screen porch.  Do we look like rednecks?  You bet!  But the sheets sure smell dandy.  Just re-reading what I wrote is making my eyes glaze over.  So if I'm bored, well certainly all you loyal readers are too.  Besides, the groan of the bus engine will soon be here.  And so this is enough of the wandering words.  On a Wednesday.

  1. I too clean things that I might otherwise not think about each week, on Saturday, as we prepare for special friends to come on Sunday morning. Never boring words from you...love what you share.

  2. Hi! Love those alone days--not that I want to always be alone!

    Shopping online is excellent! Especially when we feel like we live in the boondocks, shopping-wise.

    Clotheslines are not "redneck". They are smart. Too bad you neighborhood is missing the mark here!

  3. Lisi's lucky to even find a rabbit. Coyotes have eaten all the rabbits around here, and now they are starting in on the cats. We've lost four now, but shot that mean ole cat eating 'yote, so hopefully we don't lose any more.

  4. I surprised in this day of "greenness" that more people don't want a clothes line. It would look better than hanging them on your porch. They probably don't want to look at everyone's underwear. I do the small things and towels in the dryer and hang out the others.

  5. We also had our turn at rotation this week, PLUS our girl from the CA staff is coming tomorrow!! SO! things have gotten very 'ting' around here, too (if I'm using that unknown-to-me term correctly). BTW, from which online site did you purchase your griddle, if you don't mind saying. I bid adieu to our old electric one months ago, thought I could live just as well with a stove-top version, but find that I really can't.

  6. To Deena: It was a waffle maker. Through Amazon. The Presto Flip 3510...

  7. I agree with the 'What, No clothesline?!' comments- that's ridiculous. What could they do to you- seriously- if you just put one up? Ok- I didn't say that. But I think they're totally missing the mark on this one!
