I have had my laptop open for an hour. I’ve started and trashed several posts. I can’t seem to get the words out. I am only reading it fits and starts. It could be the book. It could be me. It could be both. I can’t settle my mind enough to do more than barely … More The Funk Continues
My week started with a dead groundhog in the front yard. I was already dealing with a downward spiral and that didn’t help. I muddled through the rest of the week and ended it with discovering we have moles digging up our yard. Was there any good? Let’s see what I can remember. Even with … More What’s Good in Tater Town 7/18/21
My phone will put together videos of some of my photos on occasion. Today’s was a video of some of my outdoorsy pictures. I decided to share here. They are from Santiago, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Manila and Kentucky.
It’s been more of a “watch TV” week than a reading week. If not for two graphic novels and the fact that I finished one book a few hours after last week’s post my reading this week would almost be nonexistent. Hopefully, my reading will pick up again soon. Here’s my week. Movies We watched … More My Week in Books, Movies, and TV 7/16/21
This has been a hard week. I have managed to post something every day. It hasn’t been easy and the posts were generally short and didn’t take a lot of effort. This is the time when I wish I had saved up some of the book tag type posts so I have a guide for … More How Do You Write When You Don’t Feel Right?
Breaking news – it is summer and it is hot. It’s too hot to take the dog for a walk unless I do it early in the morning. It’s too hot to consider doing any outside work. It’s too hot to consider doing much of anything. I remember when I looked forward to summer. Summer … More The Dog Days of Summer
I’ve written before about what I call sudden onset melancholy. It is also one of the band names on my list. Those days when I’m just sad without a firm reason for the sadness. On those days, like today, it’s really hard to do much more than sit on the couch under a blanket and … More It’s Hard Sometimes
I received this book from NetGalley. I have had a NetGalley account for a while, but I have never used it until now. I requested a couple of books and then decided to try one of the “read now” titles to have something to read and to show good intent in writing reviews. Moving forward, … More The OC by DP Lyle: A Review
This post is not about the movie Groundhog Day. This post is not about me reliving the same day over and over even though it feels that way sometimes. No. This post is about a groundhog. A dead groundhog. I wrote before about birds and how I found a dead one in my driveway. This … More Groundhog Day
It turns out the first week back from Kentucky is hard even when I don’t have to go back to The Bad Place. It is sad to go from days full of family back to regular life. Let’s look at the good from the week. My TV and Internet service was restored on the afternoon … More What’s Good in Tater Town 7/11/21
