Another last minute

Another last minute

“There is always time for another last minute” ― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather It wasn’t the best news, but we aren’t giving up. And it never gets easier. Mr. Teatime was named for a character in the Pratchett book Hogfather. Mr. Teatime, when he was a kitten was a tiny little weirdo. All guard hairs and […]

Not this or that, somewhere in between

Not this or that, somewhere in between

Every time I think I’m going to give up with this long long long standing blog, I come back. This is a long one, hold on. Will it click this time, again? I don’t know. The last year and a half has been, well, large.  Purging a lot. A LOT. Packing up 10 years, moving […]

In starlit nights I saw you So cruelly you kissed me Your lips a magic world Your sky all hung with jewels ~Echo and the Bunnymen

The prompt for the 17th, which is not today, but which I decided to do today, because I’m like that is: Make a list of everyone you’ve ever had a crush on in your life, then choose one from the list and describe him or her in great detail. (Guest Post by Ann Napolitano, author […]

The Bean’s Halloween Party Usually we have a big Halloween party with lots of kids and adults. This year we decided to try something different and have a party with the Bean’s favorite girls . We had spooky cupcakes with bloody sprite punch and bones, they all got to carve their own pumpkins (with help) […]

Halloweeniversary Present

So if you actually know me or have read me any time at all you’ll know I got married to my wonderful Mr. J on Halloween 11 years ago. I found what I wanted to get him at the Clothesline Faire in Prairie Grove a month or so back. It’s good to know there are […]

We think we’re pretty smart…

Oh I’m taking a break from the Halloween Countdown—and I’ve had to because it was yet another exhausting week at work. I hope THAT gets better soon. I can’t decide if  I love it or not. I know I don’t like office politics. But I love the work, I love so many of the people. […]

"There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world." –Jean Baudrillard

Hmmm maybe that’s why we love it so much. All that arrested development and stuff.  We don’t go in for the cutesy aspect, nope. But we haven’t gone fully as creepy as we want to because of the Bean’s age and her friends. They love coming over for Halloween and we get a little more […]

What a house. Turns out they’re doing OK, the Malfoy’s. However, the interior decorating leaves a lot to be desired. And needless to say, Voldemort isn’t the greatest houseguest. Tom Felton

So is it just me or is there just not as much cool stuff at Target this year…and last. Don’t get me wrong, I love Target Halloween. Seriously. Not so much the costumes but the home décor—the plates, the cups the serving bowls. And the towels. I think I only have Halloween hand towels. Also […]

At first cock-crow the ghosts must go Back to their quiet graves below. ~Theodosia Garrison

This is the first in a series of Halloween posts. I meant to get started earlier, but I can’t seem to get in the groove at work and so have been spending a lot of late nights and extra time working not Halloweening. I’m hoping that is about to change. We also had to wait […]

Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus

Well it is about birthday time. And about time for me to have the mopes. These are both reasonable and not. Why are they—well I had a  ….a childhood. So each year on my birthday I remember things you might see on a made for TV movie. And wonder just a bit. Sorry did I […]

Running out of words

As usual, I am at the halfway point and I’m running out of words. And as usual, thinking of dropping out of 30 posts in 30 days. And as usual I’m having issues with my site—Mainly an automatic wordpress upgrade went through, around the same time as an ‘upload later’ post and the post didn’t […]

Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to~John Ed Pearce

Well then, I almost forgot to write this. I guess I should do it before think about it too much to make any sense. I was thinking and talking tonight to my friend L about how friendships change. And this is probably a deeper subject than I’m capable of dealing with right now. Honestly I […]

Short Attention Span Theatre

  And here comes the buckshot entry. By that I mean all over the place and watch out what it hits. Work has been rough. I hope it is getting better. It really has to get better. I’m lucky I have a great boss, great teachers, great principals. And I feel really lucky that I’m […]

Reasoning at every step he treads, Man yet mistakes his way, Whilst meaner things, whom instinct leads, Are rarely known to stray. William Cowper

The Biggest Risk You’ve Ever Taken–Postaday2011, Postaweek2011   Ok, back on the bloggy horse, for reals this time. I don’t think I can post every day, but I’d like to post a couple of times a week, or a least once a week. I’ll shoot for once a week and see if I can better […]

How about some Halloween

How about some Halloween

Well, I don’t think I ever posted any of this years pics. I’m out of words today. I got barked at at work (people really get peevish about computers –seriously peevish) and even though the situation was a case of more work than I have time for, and that I’m getting to it as soon […]

Do Overs

Have you ever wanted a Do Over? Some time in your life– either a pivotal moment or a series of events that might have been turned around that you’d just like to roll back. I have some of those. But I wonder, how far can you go with that and still keep the good that […]
