Giving You My Mind, One Piece at a Time


Published a couple of days ago in Quote of the Day , The Daily Grind - 0 Comments

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

Published a few days ago in Quote of the Day , The Daily Grind - 0 Comments

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 was awakened at 4 a.m. by the sound of a trap doing its job. I present today’s culprit: It did turn out to be another deer mouse. What the picture does not accurately capture is the length of this little guy’s tail. I was almost twice as long as his body. Pretty impressive, actually. […]

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 […]

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 […]

I Found my Person!

  No quote graphic today, something went horribly awry with it, and I just don’t have the motivation to fix it now. In other news, I found someone to help me run my errands twice a month. The lady who delivers for Mac’s Bistro, Amy, said she’d be willing to help me out. I’m going […]
