It finally feels like fall here in Nashville. This weekend was beautiful and sunny. I haven’t had the air conditioning on in weeks and it hasn’t been cold enough to turn on the heat just yet either. The only difficult … Continue reading
Things of which I never tire:
4) Floor plans
6) Family and close friends
8) Sitting on a porch
9) The unconditional love of my little furballs
10) Mexican food
In an ideal moment, I would be sitting on a porch of a home I designed the floor plan of, with family and friends, furballs at my feet, eating Mexican food followed by something chocolate, while laughing in a fabulous pair of shoes, pondering the great mystery that is life, as the sun sets.
Y’all keep it real,
Lord, I was born a rambling (wo)man.
I tend to ramble. Not so much in my speech or in my travels, but in my mind. Here’s what’s gone through my head in the last few minutes:
1) My pinky finger hurts. (Also known as a “finky” in Eugene language.)
I gave myself a doozy of a paper cut today as I was trying to steadfastly recycle all of my paper, cardboard, bottles and cans. A thin piece of cardboard had it out for me. It drew blood. A lot of blood for a paper cut. I didn’t have anything to clean my cut with so I poured some hand sanitizer over it. BOY that did the trick. I had to squeeze my steering wheel with all my might to keep from yelling. Thankfully, car inspection lady who also works at the waste management center was not there this time to witness it.
2) I’m hungry.
I was perusing some food blogs today and came across a game-changing recipe that had to do with French fries, parmesan cheese and some sort of chipotle lime dip. It sounded outrageously delicious. I was planning on going for a brisk walk at the time and was seriously tempted to ditch those plans in favor of making the fries, but I held it together and stuck to my exercise plan.
That, and I didn’t have any potatoes.
I’m so disciplined.
3) I love accents.
Having lived in Boston for 13 years, I had a lot of exposure to extreme Boston accents, though I never had one myself. I don’t know what comes over me, but every now and then I think of words in a Boston accent. Kind of like when you learn a second language and think of words in that language, except not exactly. Anyway, I grabbed my loofah in the shower this evening and cracked myself up thinking of how this would be called a “loofer” in a Boston accent.
4) I need to replace my watch battery.
My watch battery is nearly dead. Not completely dead, because the time does change, just at a fraction of real time. My watch currently reads 2:37PM and indicates that it’s the 5th of the month. I know I’m on slow time here in Nashville, but not that slow.
Despite my watch being temporarily useless, I continue to wear it as a reminder to go get the battery replaced. I have continued to forget to get the battery replaced for the past week now. And I also continue to forget that my watch is not functioning properly and consequently find myself staring at my wrist confused most of the day.
I think I need my memory replaced as well.
5) The sunsets here are so pretty.
I never tire of watching (and photographing) the sunset.
It makes me realize that I should stop thinking so much.
Don’t pay me no mind,
Earlier this week, a very angry storm rolled in. I didn’t even know it was coming until I was watching the local 6:00PM news and the weather forecaster starting listing off the times the storms would hit each town nearby. … Continue reading
The other day, a tornado watch was issued for my county. I was watching very carefully. I had never experienced a tornado watch before as we had an unusually uneventful year for tornadoes due to the desert-like dome of heat … Continue reading
Yesterday morning, I set out bright and early/at 10:45 after sleeping in and went to get my Jeep inspected because the Massachusetts sticker on my windshield indicated that my inspection was due by the end of August and it was now … Continue reading
I must confess that I almost called this post “All Hat and No Cattle.” That was until a loud clap of thunder nearly knocked me off my feet. I ventured out for some errands this afternoon and took about … Continue reading
This may come as a shock to those who read my blog regularly, but there were some clouds the other day that I found quite interesting. And, by George, I took some pictures with my iphone to share with you … Continue reading
Driving in these parts is always an adventure. I set out to visit my grandparents in Kentucky last week and ran into this monstrosity on I-65. Oh, ya know, just a HOUSE headed north. I took a bit … Continue reading
A storm rolled in the other evening after a fairly uneventful few days on the weather front. The wind picked up quite a bit and the lightning was nearly constant. I ran to brush my teeth before the storm got … Continue reading
