I slept like a rock. I vaguely remember 4:00, but barely. Gizzie was still, cuddled behind my knees all night, and, oddly enough, Toddler Tigger kept himself low key. I'm not even going to analyze all of this. I was grateful for this random solid night of sleep. It will be weeks before I have … Continue reading What a Day!
Me. We started the day with the usual Lily wake-up pet demands, followed by the not-so-usual Gizzie throwing up. I wasn't even out of bed yet. My body wanted to know what happened to the night. It still does. Trivia: The yellow caps on Coca Cola bottles in spring, coupled with the kosher use of … Continue reading I was Born on a Wednesday
Today I got this notice. That's over 200 followers here on WordPress. As of today, in fact, I'm up to 202. When Zuck the Schmuck kicked me off of the former Facebook a year ago, I only had 70 "friends". They were less real than you are here. This is better by far. I read … Continue reading You guys!
I just realized I am only 70 words away from today's everpresent goal. It's 10:30 a.m. I'm not going to stop and revel in it. I'm going to write well beyond today's goal and feel immensely productive. I'm also going to reread Dave's book. I will have to say he's my inspiration, both as a … Continue reading Rage Against Intellect
Catrise 7:00. Full sunrise was at 7:20, coupled with coffee. Bless the babycats on Sunday! It's been a month since we washed the sheets, so they're in the washer. This prompted Tigger to look for new high-count full-size sheets. Found, ordered, and they'll be here today. This is the first house-related purchase made for about … Continue reading Sunday Beauty
My name is Maggie Dorroh and I am a bookaholic. Today is October 5th. I paid my share of the bills and had - HAD, mind you - $253 left. I bought a t-shirt and about $30 worth of personal items. Then I bought books. 48 of them. I now have $37 left to last … Continue reading Confession
Sorry, Gizzie, but sitting on my chest and nibbling my fingers at dark-thirty isn't going to get you fed yet, even on Caturday. Daddy has to get up. But it's still sweet to feel your purr vibrating through my body and see your sweet little kitten face nuzzled in my neck. It's ungodly early. Nothing … Continue reading 5 a.m. Kitty Wrangling
It's Caturday. We made it through Ida. We do have a gully washer coming in on Wednesday, but this is normal autumn-on-the-Chesapeake stuff. It's cool right now. We may soon have a touch of heat reminding us where we live, but it's expected and not unusual, despite the forecasters of gloom and doom. Climate change … Continue reading Live Your Best
I'm very much a loner. I only get out when I am required. Basically that means trips to the doctor. The end. I am not in the least upset by the lack of a social situation. I read. I write. I'm happy. It's true that I enjoy my husband and our babycats, but if I … Continue reading In Case You Didn’t Know…
We're an hour away from today's delightful silence: no phone ringing, no dinging notifications, just the ability to read peacefully. I have an amazing load of Dickens, Gaskell, Wolf, Deitrich, and Sinclair to delightfully occupy my day. The bed is made, the news has been dutifully read, my shower is over, and now 'tis time. … Continue reading 3, 2, 1…
