Monday Musings

Post #1212 I see!  That has a nice ring to it.  So does the weather!  Today's weather is brought to you by FANTASTIC!  Look and see!  It just seems like the birdies sing a little louder.  Or maybe it is because the door is open!  And yes, my battery is at 100% (smile)
I've been cleaning out the kitchen.  I got the spice racks all cleaned, organized, and alphabetized.  Happy sigh.  I moved on to the refrigerator.  Got that done and a wad of icky stuff thrown out.  And today?  I cleaned the dishwasher.  Yes you read that.  I cleaned the dishwasher.  Seems a bit of an oxymoron.  But it was dirty.  Trust me.  Go look at yours and look at the rubber surround by the door.  Look under the front panel.  Yucky!  Or maybe yours has always been clean.  Mine has not.  But now it is!

I saw yesterday that Nancy Reagan died.  My memory of her was how incredibly loyal she seemed to President Reagan.  But my memory of her also was that she died years ago.  I was so convinced that I thought the news was a spoof.  I'm weird like that.

Speaking of deaths.  We had a dreadful text message come in early Sunday morning.  Our neighbors a few doors down let their dog out to potty before bed.  There was a scuffle and their dog had been bitten by a coyote in its front yard and it died.  A warning was given to all the neighbors.  We'll be more vigilant as Lisi looks like a walking pork chop.  The cat?  I dunno about him.  Love him as I do, I figure he'll have to head for a tree at lightning pace.  I can't corral a cat.

So the other night we had our most-likely last skiing venture of this season.  It is always kind of sad for me even though I don't go as often as the Chairman or the MYP.  It was beautiful and I managed all the hills without a torn shoulder.  We look forward to a longer ski run within a month in a different state.  That makes it seem better.
I've tended to lean to one political party in the past. But this year, I feel like it is a bunch of puppets in clown suits.  I even said in passing I didn't think I'd vote in the upcoming election this fall.  I thought this sign summed it up well:
If you ask us to dog sit for you, we promise to give the pooch a good time!  Last Saturday, we got to be responsible to take this pooch out to go potty and feed him three times.  Well we like to make life more interesting so he got to come on errands with us.  He loved it and so did we.
We celebrated this guy's 40th.  I think it is safe to say we really like their family.  Well most of them anyway.  Their daughter tends to like to take my phone/camera and take pictures of her and daughter #2...

So without further ado, here's a few things I enjoyed lately:
yes, this has happened...

how I feel...


for some relatives of me that tend to be punny...
Happy new week ahead!


  1. Augh! I need to do my kitchen, but first there are a couple of things I put away last year that I can't remember where I put them. One is large, which limits the space, and the other I've looked in the obvious places. Nowadays if I put something in the different place than 'where it's always been', I'll never find it again.

  2. I like your pun. And yes, I also feel like it was just Christmas and now it's already March.
