This is a very rambling disjointed post, but it’s all I got.

Katsu   I think my mojo is back. It was on vacation in the Bahamas for a while. I let it go alone because I’d much rather go to a crisp, cool, mountain retreat than a sunny, warm beach. There is so much to do and the desire to do it has returned, but not necessarily the energy. My energy is currently exploring the ¬†continent of Antarctica. Even without the energy, I’m pressing on. I’m currently dealing with elderly critters. Lily is in the other room growling and barking at her butt. We took her to the vet and had …

The Birthday: A little late, but everyday is a new birthday.

The photos above: With Chris Estep at the Book Barn. He’s my own personal web designer. The second is with Lyn Meredith at Salsa’s Cantina. Ah, yes. I promised to tell you about my birthday. I went to work thinking I was working an 8 hour shift because so many people were off for graduations and honeymoons and seeing their husbands who had been deployed for 8 months. I had asked for the day off. I couldn’t be accommodated, so… I volunteered to work longer. Oh well. However… Another teacher said she would come in so I got to leave …

No, this is not the post you were looking for.

Doc1 Yes, yes, I know I promised that this week there would be a review of Margarita Engle’s “Morningstar Horse.” I have two valid excuses for not following through with that promise. Excuse Number One: I am in the process of re-reading Morningstar Horse. I am reading slowly so as to savor the delicious imagery. Excuse Number Two: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! Sixty Six years ago, at 4:05 in the afternoon, I entered this world. My life in the previous world had just gotten too messy. I escaped just in time. Sixty Six. My, what a long time. I’ve been around …

It’s One of Those Weird Rambling Types of Days…

I’m supposed to write a blog today. If I don’t do it now, it will be late, and I don’t think I’ve been late yet. Although I try to post by Saturday afternoon, as long as it gets posted by Sunday evening, all is well. Looks like I may just be rambling for this week. Brian headed off for a six week stay in Ireland on April 19, so I’m on my own, which mostly means not cleaning up after myself and not eating right. Someone said “Oh, your husband’s gone – you won’t have to cook!” I explained that …

Ramblings about numbers and phobias and wanting to know things.

I do not have a scientific mind – no, let me amend that. I do not have a mathematical mind. Numbers confuse me. They make no sense. A few years ago I took a College Arithmetic class. I expected to do poorly, but I got an ‘A’! No one was more surprised than me. And it was actually fun. So, the next semester I took Algebra. Oh, Good Lord! It was horrible. I paid $400 for a tutor, but it was excruciatingly painful. I cried a lot. I just didn’t understand it. How I managed to get a ‘C’ I’ll …
