"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

is that a target on my head?


courtesy; "thoughts from alice."




Well, well, well, it's been such a long time since I've posted I wonder if I remember how this thing works.  After a month with no computer I wasn't sure.  The first week was the hardest with the withdrawals but then I figured out that my old kindle could get fb and occasionally a blog or two.  No way to leave comments though which was a problem even before my computer went on vacation.  Still having problems with comments, so sorry, I really do miss being able to converse with you all, a times you are virtually my life-line.

Let me catch you up, short version, so M and H will have note of this.  Hubby was t-boned just before Turkey day, he's fine and we added another blessing to our table.  Then he got a $200 speeding ticket in our rental car, yes he did.  The day our rental car was being turned back over we were again hit, no injuries but now we feel like targets.  Our computer went on extended leave of absence, or new vacuum died, my phone fell into a million pieces, aaaaaannnnnndddd here we are, the middle of December trying to find our Christmas tree, it's in the garage somewhere, and take down our Halloween decor.  Oh, and I won't even mention that I don't have a prosthesis so I'm not getting around much, but then, I won't mention THAT!

So, tell me please, how have you been?  Ready for the holidays?  It's 10pm do you know where your Christmas tree is??  Inquiring minds and all...

Happy Hanukkah to my wonderful Jewish friends and my beautiful little grandgirl who completes my heart.  Be well friends.

...I can pretty much guarantee that this post is going to be all over the place.  From Monday snap, to Tuesday tid-bits, and even Wednesday whine, you are in for a bit of it all.


Monday, this would be the only 'snap' I got on Thanksgiving.  My grandgirl showing off her mad balancing skilz.  That's a dinner roll on her head and as far as I know that was the only thing she ate.

We had a very nice, relaxing evening, hosted by my son this year.  It just included the four grandparents and his family.  Nevertheless we had a great time visiting and catching up with my son's in-laws who just happen to be a couple of the most generous of heart people we know.  Of course Miss M was in grand fashion and entertaining.  This was our first all vegetarian Thanksgiving and was delicious.  While I did miss the smell of the turkey roasting and gravy everything turned out well.   Of course I had to roast a turkey over the weekend just because...

Tuesday and it's tid-bits. How is it possible that December came barging in on us so quickly.  Perhaps the retailers non-stop "Christmas" events since before Halloween have something to do with it.  I am already tired of the seasons movies, commercials, news, that I have my radio set to '80s first wave music and have very little to do with the tele.   

    *about a month ago the hubby was t-boned on his way home from work. He was checked out by paramedics at the scene and sent home, not so much the car.  Although not totalled, which is nice since it was new to us, it has taken them awhile to get it finished.  Picked it up today and as we were turning our rental car in someone rammed us and now it's dented.  Another day another claim, I guess we will be shopping for insurance next year.  Thing with the first one, all the traffic lights were out, there were no witnesses, and  both had the same insurance so no tickets were issued and our deductible was halved.  We don't know who hit us the second time so it's all on us.  Yay, Merry Christmas.

    * I am lacking in the Christmas spirit department and if I was to tell the truth we still have Halloween decorations up on the front porch.  I should probably do something about that ya think?

and now for the whine.  I have been unable to comment on many of your blogs, they get sent back to me as undeliverable.  I have tried the e-mail route to get my comments to you and that also is not working.  In fact there seems to be some problem with yahoo and gmail accounts...they must be arguing...as the one thing I have found in common is that those of you with gmail accounts are the ones I can't leave comments on.  I don't quite know what to do about that as my comments to you are very important to me and I want you to know I was there.  I am going to try a different server 'Comcast" and see if it works.  So if you see that my email has changed and you wonder who the heck it is...it's me.
