The weekend … finally …

I was hoping this week would be easier than last, and to some extent, it was, but it was still hard.  The wind storm that we had Wednesday night didn’t help.  I’m so sick of all the bad storms we’ve been getting this spring.  I know we are a lot better off than other people, […]

Dreaming …

I dreamed last night that I was hired as a commercial real estate paralegal (my former profession).  There were A LOT of perks such as an office with beautiful furniture, two televisions, a stereo, etc.  I also got bags of fancy underwear, bras and pantyhose.  Bras and pantyhose????

Oh thank goodness!!!!

We had a really, really bad storm go through around 1 AM this morning.  I thought the roof was going to come off the house.  I got very little sleep for constantly getting up and checking on things outside and checking the weather for tornado warnings. When I got up this morning, it was still […]

We have butter!!!!!!

Yes seree Bob!  I have two whole pints!!!  As I expected, it takes A LOT of milk to make a pint of butter.  This butter will be something that I use very sparingly.  Lately, we have been “throwing a lot of milk away” so it will be good to use at least some of it […]
