Women detectives!

Originally Published on: Jun 30, 2017 @ 05:46 As I said in my last post, I’m going to share some of my favorite women detectives with y’all. I’ll be doing this as often as I find something that I think the world should know about, that maybe not everyone knows about yet. As always, I…

One of my favorite things, Cat Mysteries!

Originally Published on: Jun 29, 2017 @ 05:42 I’ve been AWOL, I know. I’ve had a very good reason. I’ve been reading. A LOT. When my depression is rearing its ugly head, I cocoon, usually with a book or ten. Of course, I read all the time, but it becomes a bit of an obsession…

Good Old Fashioned Kottbullar!

Originally Published on: May 23, 2017 @ 02:10 I posted a couple of pictures as I was preparing our dinner the other night on Facebook, and there was interest in the recipe, so I’m sharing it here, so all can see it and actually bookmark it for real, not just have it ‘somewhere on their…

How I saved $100, and had fun doing it!

Originally Published on: May 22, 2017 @ 23:50 Hello! Did my title lure you in? Do you want to know how to save lots of money while having fun? Okay, I hate to break it to you, but you have to be able to sew for this one.  Have you heard of April Cornell? Oh,…

42 might be the answer, but the question eludes me…

Originally Published on: May 4, 2017 @ 06:00 42. This is the age Mother was when she had me. I always thought that was old, especially when my friend’s parents were much younger. I always hated that people thought she was my grandmother. She died when I was 25, and I miss her. Becoming the…

April 28, 2014

Originally Published on: Apr 28, 2017 @ 19:10 On this day I married a wonderful man. Jeremiah is a man I never expected to fall in love with, and certainly never expected to marry. He’s younger than me, which I am still surprised by. But he loves animals as much as I do, and we…

Pretty As A Peacock Jumper

Originally Published on: Apr 5, 2017 @ 14:03 I am a child of the 80’s, and came of age in the early 90’s, so I have a love for many things popular then. I like to wear jumpers. I don’t wear those wide-collared blouses with them still, so I have at least updated the look…

Here, Kitty, Kitty! Please don’t pee on the floor!

Originally Published on: Apr 1, 2017 @ 20:19 We’ve had six beautiful kitties since we first met. They are sweet, loving, wonderful companions. But they pee and poop. A LOT. We have had to deal with many ‘accidents’ and overflowing litter boxes.  Princess especially does not like to get her paws dirty, so she only…

Jobs search anxiety and cats

I’ve been planning a post about cat litter (yes, I know,  exciting stuff!), but I’m just not able today. And there’s something else on my mind . I haven’t posted in just over a month. Why? Life’s been rough. When I left my teaching job, I thought I’d have a job by now. A good…

Getting Along and Growing

Hello! I have been a lazy bum this week. Woot! I’ve cooked and done dishes and very basic household chores, but that’s about it. I’ve watched Netflix, played with my kitties, and read some books. I’ve also taken a lot of naps. Yay, naps! The kitties are happy. Truffle is blending well into our family….

Silver Truffle Candy Cat

I warned you. I said last week that I’m a crazy cat lady. I don’t make a habit of telling lies. We got another cat Tuesday. His name is Truffle, and he’s a silvery-grey tabby with white accents. He is two years old, and he is a love-bug. In February, when we had to send…

Memory

On June 6, 2000, Mother was diagnosed with lung cancer.  I had taken her to the hospital for a  bronchoscopy and was sitting in the waiting room during the procedure.  A nurse came out and asked for me, bringing me back to the procedure room.  Mother was lying there, knocked out, with tubes up her…
