Giving You My Mind, One Piece at a Time

Mission Accomplished

Cam arrived safely around noon yesterday. We located the title! (I needed Cam’s eyes to accomplish the task). After lunch at the Chinese buffet, we dropped by the dealership and they said that they’ll take the car. I will be dropping it off later today since I needed to wait for the owner to come […]


I have noticed a strange synchronicity when it comes to capturing mice. Almost all of them have set the traps off around 3 a.m. So I was not surprised when I was awakened this morning by the sound of a trap being sprong. What was surprising, however, was that both of the living room traps […]

Pretty Spectacular

We’re in the midst of some pretty severe thunderstorms right now. There is a flash flood watch in effect (doesn’t impact me here up on the ridge) and storms are to continue throughout the day. I know I’ve talked about my smart home before. Well, at 2 a.m. we had a power blip, which results […]

Nothing to Say

I think I used up all my creativity for a while. I’m kind of blank right now. I did start looking for the title, but it’s slow going. I’m trying to shred everything that I don’t currently need. There has been LOTS of shredding. I don’t even want to think about the moutainous pile of […]

I made a ton of progress yesterday in the office area of my living room. I cleared a lot of the clutter, hooked up my printer again, ordered some supplies off Amazon for projects that I’ve been ignoring for far too long, did some computer maintenance, basically, a variety of things that needed doing. I […]

A Story Worth Sharing

Published last year in Stories Worth Sharing - 0 Comments

T   This is the first post in a new category that I have created called “Stories Worth Sharing.” This category will be used to relay stories from my past, commentary on current events and anything else I consider “worthy” enough to be shared. This particular post was inspired by an Internet meme going around […]
