In Praise of those cooking videos

May 15th, 2017 · No Comments

Is anyone else simply fascinated by those cooking videos on FaceBook? I usually look at FB when I’m sitting in my car waiting on my kid.  Or doing something else which doesn’t require my full attention.  I can scroll through on my phone which doesn’t play videos unless I click the link. But occasionally?   I get […]

Moving along well on Jacob’s ornament. I do think it’s lovely. Canvas by J.Malay. Stitches and threads picked by The French Knot in Ft. Worth with my input.

What’s happening here?

March 3rd, 2017 · No Comments

I’m thinking about what I need to take with me to the Robotics Tournament in Texas next week.  My job at these things appears to be to hang about and offer moral support and occasionally money to sustain my participant.  The last time, I didn’t have my great new glasses yet, so I spent my spare […]

Karma

March 2nd, 2017 · No Comments

I worked the Ash Wednesday noon prayer service yesterday. There was a woman there with a bunch of kids.  One pretty small, who obviously didn’t want to be there.   He was making that pretty plain.  She eventually made the decision to take him and her other kids out of there.  But not before a woman, with one […]

Does anyone know what this is?

I found this tonight when I was putting Celeste’s lunch for tomorrow.  I don’t even think I have anything that it fits. My own little blast from the past

Geepers Peepers

Last week I went to the eye doctor.  My eye pressure was low. Which is good.  Yah me! Jacob and I got new glasses. These are mine.  They also have sunglasses which have a magnet on them. Pretty cool.  Huh? I had the no-line bifocals before.  They were nice and I didn’t have any trouble […]

Tired

February 23rd, 2017 · No Comments

It is only Thursday, but it feels like it has been a long week. Last weekend Jacob and I went to Weatherford with the Robotics Team for a tournament.  I hadn’t really planned on going.  Jacob has reached that point where he doesn’t need me and finds me a little bit embarrassing.  I don’t have to do anything […]

My Musings on Saturday’s Loss to Golden State

February 13th, 2017 · No Comments

Saturday night the OKC Thunder played the Golden State Warriors. For those of you who do not follow OKC Basketball, Kevin Durant got free agency last year.  He left the Thunder for Golden State for, I’m sure, a variety of reasons.  He did it in a way that probably could have been handled differently.  Saturday […]

The Haircut

February 8th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Early in December,  I took Jacob to get a haircut.  He had a thing at school and had been needing to get a haircut for awhile. This was the result: I stayed in the car while he went into the barbershop.  I didn’t give any directions about the haircut.  Usually, his Dad takes him, but […]

Pretty American Teeth

October 27th, 2016 · No Comments

The other night David and I were watching some show on PBS.  It was a mystery.  Set in Scotland.  Or maybe just the main character had a Scottish accent.  One of the characters has braces.  They are talking about them and why she has them.  I don’t remember the exact question but I do remember […]
