I shop at a fruit and garden mart. Depending on the season, they carry around ten varieties of apples. This week I tried the Pink Lady variety. It has a firm texture and is pleasantly tart. I found it to be a very good tasting apple and will... Read more

Although it was overcast, the rain held off, so I mowed the lawn in the back yard. In some places it had gotten really high. It's a good thing I didn't put it off any longer. I tried a new brand of cat food on the kitties, and they snubbe... Read more

In my virtual fitness class this morning, the instructor used one of my favorite biceps tracks. It alternates between dumbbells and a barbell, and it's challenging. I curled more weight than she did. ... Read more

Before heading to Jewel, I grabbed a jacket and was glad to have it. It was already 7 PM, and the temperature was falling. There is definitely a run on Fancy Feast, because Jewel's shelves were rather bare. I'm heading to a pet store tomo... Read more

I found some daffodils that I know I planted. The petals are white and the corona (I looked that up Terracottage) is a shade of pink. Very pretty! I tried to order Fancy Feast on Chewy.com, and the cats' favorites are all out of stock. U... Read more

If it didn't hit 80 today, it got pretty darn close. I guess it's finally safe to run the snow blower until the gas tank is empty. I never got around to making anything in the slow cooker over the weekend, so I pulled some leftover chili o... Read more

It's been a hectic day, so I'm looking forward to my shower. While I was doing my Bodypump class, I watched a bunny eating the seed the birds dropped out of the feeder. Since the house does not have a full basement, the windows are at grou... Read more

Mary and I had brunch this morning complete with bottomless mimosas. It was lovely. It's been over a year since I spent time with my family, and this evening we had dinner together. It was so good to see everyone!!! To make Easter ex... Read more

As I was doing my squats this morning, I was looking out the window and saw my first robin of the season. What do your know? That robin was on the ground next to a bunch of daffodils! I didn't plant any of the daffodils that are in the yard. ... Read more

I finally went back to the dentist today. He prepped my tooth for the crown and took an impression. I destroyed me temporary, so he made a new one. I'm glad that's over. I found another clump of daffodils!!! ... Read more

I was enjoying opening the bedroom window at night. That's past tense. It's too darned cold to be letting fresh air into my bedroom. Besides, I don't think the kitties would appreciate it either. My boss is out of town, so it was just th... Read more

I was able to renew my driver's license online, and it came in the mail today. When I opened the envelope, I was expecting to find a sticker to put on my current license. Instead it was a replacement license, and it included my photograph. Th... Read more

It just must be that time of year, because it was windy in the Chicagoland area too. When we were kids, we flew paper kites that we got at Woolworths and made tails for the kites with left over fabric from my mother's sewing projects. It was n... Read more

Although it was sunny, the wind was really blowing. Thank goodness my recycling bin didn't fall over. Chasing down plastic bottles and paper the first thing in the morning isn't my idea of a good time. It warmed up nicely today, and I too... Read more
