Meet Me on Monday #49

June 20, 2011


Oh I had a LAZY day yesterday, and it was SOOOO good. I bought a new patio set after our old one was destroyed by flooding in late April. This set is so much nicer! I trimmed the oak tree to make canopy so we could sit in the shade. I’m trying to force myself […]

Back From Virginia

May 16, 2011


I’m back! I told you I needed a vacation. On very short notice (but in the works for the past ten years), I finally got to visit my brother in Virginia. It was WONDERFUL!!! Oh, it is so good to be back home again (especially after a 10 hour drive, ugh), but we were so […]

Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Candace Cameron Bure is starring in Truth Be Told, the latest movie for Family Movie Night! That’s so very cool! Family Movie Night is a special mission from the folks at WalMart and P&G to bring more family-friendly movies to television (yay!). I’ve mentioned some of the movies before, […]

Are you ready, folks?! Monday hits the Northern Hemisphere once again! And this time, it’s a little different– SPRING is upon us! Sunday night at 7:20pm or so, to be exact. :smarty: And I am so glad to see it come. Questions: 1. What jewelry do you wear 24/7? None! Not even my wedding ring. […]

I STILL Can’t Decide on a Car!

February 6, 2011


Well, we are FINALLY crawling our way toward THINKING about a decision to get a new car. In case you didn’t know, we have an ailing Dodge Caravan minivan. I loved that van, but it was used as a postal vehicle for a while (Hubs is a rural carrier, and up until a few months […]

My Netflix Movie Recruitment: The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry

December 9, 2010


Netflix kept “recommending” this movie called The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, based on other movies I liked. The cover of the DVD didn’t catch my eye at first. It has a photo of a smiling old guy (Gavin McLeod) with a bunch of boys. Maybe it was a movie about fishing or skateboarding. *yawn* I […]

If You Could Go Anywhere, Where Would You Go?

November 5, 2010


I was perusing some travel sites of late (the only travel I’ve been doing these days), and someone asked that question. Hmmm. :thinky: choices, choices. If money was no object, I’d go to Greece. I LOVE LOVE Greek food. I would go there for the food and the glorious scenery. The perfect vacation would be […]

Nation’s Oldest Family Farm Up for Sale

August 4, 2010


Holy cow. LITERALLY, hahahah!!! :blink: OK I calm down now. This story at Boston.com is both tragic and befuddling. (I’d copy and paste a section of the news story, but I don’t want to get sued for doing so– so you’ll have to go see for yourself). In a nutshell, a family in New Hampshire […]
