I’m going to this thing tomorrow at St. Catherine’s University. There’s guilt, cause I’ve been a bad blogger and haven’t made the time to write. And yeah, I *could* blame FaceBook and the wonderful people I talk to there, but frankly that’s a crock and a cop-out. But whatever. I…

I got on the darn thing and rode up and down those six blocks again this evening. My knees were complaining so I only did that once – then picked up all the walnuts and ran around cleaning. I’m grateful for being able to do that. Rochester Fiber has three…

Ten minute segments. My Sundays are broken down into short bursts of productivity, timed to be ten minutes long. When the alarm sounds, I take a moment to reflect that yes, I remained on task for those ten minutes and then immediately move onto another ten minutes of some other…

NOT my worksite – one of the company’s completed projects. I borrowed the picture from the website to show I’m working with the people that wire giants!…Giant buildings and containers…sheesh. I don’t think they work on Transformers. Today I started at Knobelsdorff Electric, Inc, as a…

My own fault for letting them all outside, when it was raining. I saw Samantha, our younger female, across the street so I growled her name at her. I’ve been practicing Dean Winchester’s “Sam!” growl to the point that the show confuses her terribly, so it didn’t surprise me but…

More important – How do I get it out of my car?? I need some strong people to help me wrestle it out! It’s a Toro, not new but the engine was replaced  a couple of years ago. Owned by one person, used within his family all these years. Started…

It’s not over. And I’m sorry to say but it will be mostly spent sitting in this chair, getting stuff done. But so far it’s been good – I called my own mother, Linda Crim, and caught up. Then Ginny and I spent some “OMG Motherhood is great yet sticky…
