Hiking… Shoes

Monday, September 26th, 2011

New shoes for the trip, and for hiking in general. I’m planning to do more of that — I haven’t done any in a startlingly long time, for someone who used to do a lot of hiking. It’s easy to get out of the habit. These came from the shop where #1 son works. I […]

Fall SWAP 2011

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

No sewing yesterday, which undoes any hope of reaching a garment a week, but not any hope of completing my SWAP eventually. My jaunt lasts only a week, and should be mostly a blue jeans kind of thing, so I’m not really concerned about failing to complete my SWAP in time for the trip. Here’s […]

New Car and Bible Heroes

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

It’s been rather a hectic week. My husband has a new car, or new to him anyway. I tried to join in with thinking of it as fun, but actually it’s just a much more expensive alternative to repair work. Still, we now have two functioning cars to take to work, rather than my having […]

Teal Jacket

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Yesterday was a lovely, relaxing day. I had a nap after lunch, and otherwise spent the day watching Numb3rs and working on my jacket. It was a rainy day, so I was able to feel cozy snuggling up on the sofa, rather than lazy. Lazy’s not bad on hot days, though. Anyway, my jacket is […]

Sleep, Hats, People

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Once again I’m starting my weekend in a desperately sleep deprived state. I have a nap planned this afternoon. I feel tired enough to take a nap now, but napping before the sun comes up seems silly, and I already tried just going back to sleep. It didn’t work. Plus, I’m expecting people this morning. […]

Remembering 9/11

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

I spent yesterday working, in a very whiny and ungrateful fashion. “Ungrateful” may seem like an odd word to choose, but it’s the right word. I could have — and have, in the past — been working in retail or giving an exam or something like that. Instead, I was in the comfort of my […]

A Smoker’s Home

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

I’m not feeling well today. This began on Thursday evening, when I went to the rehearsal of the choirlet. The rehearsal that evening was in the home of a smoker. I assume that there must have been times in the past when I have been in the homes of smokers, but I can’t remember them, […]

Wednesday September 7, 2011

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

I had an unpleasant experience today. I have a bunch of different email addresses, approximately fibermom@thiscompany, fibermom@thatcompany, etc. so that I can talk with my clients’ clients as though from their offices. So today I had a communication from one of these folks and I got excited about what we were discussing and thoughtlessly clicked […]

Holiday Planning

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

After writing here yesterday morning, I baked banana nut muffins and oatmeal raisin muffins and mini quiches while the kids sliced peaches and vegetables. My husband vacuumed the house and #2 son carried heavy things to and from the porch. Since much of the action in the video took place on the porch, we cleaned […]

Movie Making

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

We’re making a movie today. The kids are all home, though #1 son is at work today and #1 daughter will be coming in this morning. At 10:00, though, we have a bunch of people including a cameraman coming to film a video. I need to clean house and make food. Last night, #2 son […]
