Odds and Ends No. 70


It is a bathrobe day. It started on the way to choir practice last night. With a full weekend singing schedule ahead of me, it is my turn for the creeping crud. I feel like an old Alka-Seltzer TV commercial; I’ll spare you the grizzly details as I knock around […]

Odds and Ends No. 67


It didn’t occur to me to have chocolate for breakfast until this morning. You see, I’m a purist at heart when it comes to bagels. Can’t eat them every day. It is hard enough to keep my weight down as it is! This is my second Saturday in my new […]

Odds and Ends No. 53


Mark your calendar for it was a week ago yesterday that I jumped ship. This is the way it happened. My life has been on hold lately. I had it with a lot of things, but my raging computer wars had to come to end. It was time! My five-year […]

Odds and Ends No. 49


Looks like it hit 119° F this afternoon. I had a late lunch after my massage at noon, so I’m eating a late dinner as well. It is a little after seven. High temperatures didn’t change much for me. I made a simple ramen soup. Chicken flavor. With peanut butter, […]

Odds and Ends No. 45


I change my laptop operating systems as often as some people change their clothes. Not sure why. (I really don’t want to know why. I’m sure it is a sign of a major flaw. I don’t need to know about any more of them; I have my share.) Not walking […]

Odds and Ends No. 19


My lunch the other day is much like the one for today. Maybe a different cheese, but bologna is still my standard lunch fare, if you must know. I had made the tea thinking it would stave off hunger so I could eat later. I was hoping to lunch later […]

Odds and Ends No. 8


I’m taking a break drinking a comforting cup of Irish Breakfast tea at 16:16. Mug, actually. And a few crackers with PB to hold me until later. First time I sat down today. It started this morning. Well, more accurately, it didn’t start; that was the problem. She looked sweet […]

Odds and Ends No. 7


This has been another undecided day. A day where I’ve been between tools, so I might as well throw my task list out the window. Undecided on most things unimportant. Office vs Google, Edge vs Chrome, Trello vs OneNote, Outlook vs everything else. What it boils down to is this: […]

Odds and Ends No. 3


I put in one sugar instead of two or three in my mid-morning cup of coffee. I could tell it was going to be a coffee day and not a tea day from the get go. We finished off our breakfast pot, so I made an 8 cup pot of […]

Odds and Ends No. 2


We drank our special Friday grind today instead; we were out of our daily. It tastes good any day, but we opt for a cheaper blend to meet our daily morning needs. To say coffee is coffee is a misnomer, as you well know. Out of matzo and not hungry […]
