A Couple of Pictures

They are auctioning off chairs for the literacy program, so here they are. (Each one is tagged with a retail price over $400, so strictly window shopping.) Also stopped by Brownville and took a picture. The festival season hasn’t started yet, but my Fitbit was demanding more steps.

Tornado Season Begins

We’re having severe weather tonight, which means the weather man gets nearly unlimited airtime to mispronounce the names of all the towns in the area, and everybody else goes out for a round of storm chasing. Well, storm chasing lite. I’m not driving into the thick of it, and I’m not replacing my windshield with

Spring Might Be Here

Spring may finally be here. Limited time engagement, but it got up to seventy today, pleasant and warm, with some real sun. It’s the kind of weather where you envision yourself working outdoors on the porch, and then you realize just how short your computer’s battery life is, or just how much the wind blows

Leaving Distractions Behind

So, today, I went to the library to work. A change of scenery can’t be all bad. A little more focus, probably, just because I’m not somewhere I can curl up and watch the Twitter Feed slide by. No computer–not one of mine, anyway–so I’m working on my phone and that folding keyboard I keep

IWSG: Does Spring Inspire You?

Cheaper than Shipping

Do you know how hard it is to find just the right item to add to your order to get free shipping? I found my microwave safe neti pot, but that last three bucks? Impossible! If the neti pot weren’t breakable, I’d add a case of meal replacement shakes and be done with it, but…

Censored, at Last!

I tried to get on my website from the free public wifi in a fine family dining establishment. (Okay, so, it was a Pizza Hut.) And I was promptly blocked with a message informing me that I had tried to access a website of a classification that is not allowed. My first thought was blogs

StoryTime Blog Hop: Sugar in the Raw

She needed the money. That was the long and short of it. Land of opportunity… maybe. But opportunities cost money, and she was living out of a suitcase, and eating her last few dollars. When she left home, those meager savings seemed like a fortune. Now—two weeks into New York City—she could see they wouldn’t

Just Between Friends

You know that one relative? The one who can’t take no for an answer, and consistently overestimates the closeness of their relationships? The one who brings up donor insemination (no, they’re not telling me about their plans, BTW) unprompted… (Yeah. That last one really is just me, isn’t it?) **sigh** They’re heeee—earrr. I have no

Continuing With the Website

There’s something weirdly satisfying about working on the website. I don’t know whether it’s the idea of a project that can be completed in a couple of days, or just that I like it so much better this way. It is better this way, isn’t it? Yes, I know there are a few links that
