Hello all, it's been a while

I see today it's been three weeks since I last posted. Well, it's been a busy three weeks with personal/family drama, some of which I hope is finally moving toward some kind of conclusion. When I've had time at home I've been busy trying to keep my garden

30-Day Song Challenge Day 16 - A Song that Was Remade Better than the Original - "Running Up That Hill"

Getting back into the swing of things with this challenge today, and continuing on with cover/remake theme, is to pick a song where the remake is "better" than the original. That's a bit of a subjective matter, I think. I may feel a remake is better becaus

Yoga for back and neck pain

My back has been, well, back to giving me lots of trouble lately. I've had a stiff neck on the right side for weeks - my massage therapist could barely begin to work on the knots when I saw her most recently. And that's been giving me tension headaches. My

Cooking therapy

It's always sad to go to a funeral, even when you know someone has led a good life, even when you know they were fighting a difficult disease and are at last at peace. So when I got home this afternoon I felt like I needed a little "cooking therapy" in the

Need to catch up (when I get the chance)

I'm behind now on the music challenge and other posts I wanted to get done this weekend. Saturday was all tied up with the plumbers, and yesterday I just didn't get a lot accomplished beyond some housework and cooking. Just the way things go, sometimes. A

Quiet Sunday in the kitchen

After yesterday dealing with plumbers and all of that nonsense, today I needed to take it easy. So I didn't get a lot done besides grocery shopping this morning and cooking ahead a bit for this week. One of sweetie's housecall patients gave him a huge bag

The plumbers are here (at last!)

As I posted last night, one of my tenants was having problems with their hot water heater yesterday. After not hearing back from my regular contractor by this morning, I assumed he must be on holiday. So I had to try to find someone new to come take a look

So much for a day off tomorrow

One of the downsides of owning rental property/being a landlord is that - if you are doing your job properly - you have to be ready to deal with emergency calls and repairs at any time. A weekend off can be gone in a flash. And that seems to be the case fo

Ready to start the weekend

Today has not been the most productive day, so perhaps I am simply ready for it to be the weekend already. Maybe it was too much yakking away and fighting last night on the TV, watching the two Republican presidential candidate debates. But I woke up with
