Latest Happenings

This page will be my week to week chronicle of our life adventures (or lack of).  Each week (most likely Saturday morning) the page content will be saved to the hard drive.  Then the page will be deleted and the new week will begin.

"Make the time to find some beauty in each and every day".

1:30 pm.  45 F degrees and raining.  Bored to tears.  Watched two movies (The Martian and No Country For Old Men).  Yawning, sneezing...  Seems like a wasted day so far.  <sigh>

Just finished the last two episodes of season five of Longmire.  Sure gonna miss this show.

The Chance always and ever on duty, protecting us from that dreaded gold cat.

1:30 pm.  We are getting most every kind of weather today so far.  Clouds, rain, snow, sun, rain, etc!

2:15 pm.  Sunny at the moment.  Vacuuming the house.  Switching between the upright for the main areas and the wand/brush for the edges.

Looks like a bit of a storm cell is moving through

A beautiful end to a confusing and fickle weather day.  Night night...

The cute Chance

I love you honna.  But that outfit almost hurts my eyes.  <wink wink nudge nudge>

1:00 pm.  After just over 3 months of being retired I finally cleaned out the 3 boxes in the back of the XTerra!  I feel as though I have done something mentally important.  All my personal stuff from the office has been riding with me for months.  Time to remove the stuff.  Almost filled an entire garbage can!
