Do you like food?

I mean, really, who doesn’t right?  What about cooking?  And funny?  Do you like funny?  Well then, forget Julie and Julia and take short link hop over to the Mouse House Kitchen where gives you food and funny all in one heaping helping.  Think of it as George Carlin meets Rachel Ray:  you know, like the […]

Sunday

Another lazy day.  Kelly was up around 7 or 7:30 and I got up a little later and ate some breakfast, but then I went back to bed for a while, still needing to rest and be lazy.  I spent most of the day watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy on DVD and finished up the […]

Saturday

We slept in late this morning.  Actually, we got up for a while and then went back to bed.  I’d been working hard all week and I had to work more today but I needed some rest.  We finally got up and showered sometime around 11 AM. Around noon I started to work.  Kelly headed off […]

Thursday writing

I finished the second draft of "Depression Baby".  It took me 90 minutes to rewrite the last 660 words or so.  The story now stands at 6,200 words, longer than I was intending, but I think it works.  I’ve got some cleanup to do, but I think I might be able to get it out in the mail […]

Time dilation

My 9 hour workday seemed to pass by in 15 minutes or so.  I continued my work on the PowerPoint slide deck for the training session I’m leading in mid-March.  I started as soon as I got into the office, worked on it nonstop until lunchtime.  I paused at lunch to eat, read more of Steal Across […]

No gym this morning

I made chicken marsala and rice pilaf for dinner and both came out good.  I may have slightly overcooked the rice, but it was the first time in my life that I ever made rice and I thought it tasted really good.  There were some leftovers which Kelly is taking for her lunch today.  No writing last night. […]

Good meals

I’m sequestering myself in the office this week in order to complete some training material for a 3-day train-the-trainer session I’ll be leading in mid-March.  I started the work morning off by putting together my annual self-appraisal.  With the exception of one meeting, I spent the rest of the day working on the training stuff, and […]

Offline Sunday

I’ve been trying to spend my Sunday’s offline–disconnected from Internets, phones, TV, etc.  I did pretty good today, with one or two small exceptions.  I had another busy day planned and I did pretty good: Did the grocery shopping for the week Completed all of the paperwork I need to submit to our accountant for tax season Prepared […]

Presidents Day

We headed back home today.  We had such a great time visiting with strausmouse  and rmstraus –too short, really.  We left their house around 10:30 AM and we were in our door three hours later, which is just how it should be.  I’m so glad we decided to fly and not drive.  We would have lost […]

Early night

Busy day at work today.  Progress on some fronts, but more delays on others.  We stopped at the grocery store after work and picked up a few things, and when we got home, I made my apple, ale and cheddar soup again.  It was good, but not quite as good as the first time.  Too much […]

Thanksgiving dinner

Great Thanksgiving dinner at Sarah’s this evening.  Early in the afternoon, I set about making my stuffed mushrooms.  I made two kinds, a spicy, seasoned kind and a more bland kind.  The spicy, seasoned ones came out really good.  I surprised myself.  We headed over to Sarah’s just before 3 PM. All told, there were nine […]
