Dear Readers,

Hello.  Here it is, a rainy and cold Monday morning in April.  Probably just as it should be BUT I just saw a June bug on Friday night AND my peonies are already in BUD so this weather does not bode well for the spring flower display.  I wait all winter for the peonies.  They are my favorite flower and I hope that their short lived blooms are not destroyed by this hideous weather.  Grr.

Work has been so great lately-the shrieks of happy little middle school girls have been echoing down the hall and I have been smiling to myself over their antics.  Today though, I find myself once again morphed into Mrs Grundy from the archie comics.  I am frowning and grumbly at the imperfections of the system. 

Next weekend I am forcing the hubmeister to travel with me to upstate NY, our home away from home, to look at a cabin for sale.  It is not what we want, it is not something that will be permanent, BUT it is something for now that will give us a base of operations during the summer and fall when we are visiting the lake and other family members.  It looks to be the size of a small dog kennel-jk.  It is quite small but tough shit-that is what you get for cheap.  That’s the thing, we can actually afford to get this.  I don’t really care WHAT it is like, I pretty much plan on making a bid for it.  Have to take a chance sometime ya know?  It will be a great headquarters for our trips north and we can take the dogs.  I really think it is time for us to stop renting our cousin’s house.  They have girls who are interested-although a bit late in the game-in taking over.  We can’t usually predict when their vacations will be so even though we pay to rent it for the summer we must take a back seat to the cousin’s plans which has often caused a hasty rescheduling on our part and lost vacation time.  This will keep our relationships sweet I think.

More Later!




  1. Was almost impossible to read the teeny-tiny print on your post with my 66 year old eyeballs !!! This spring has been a topsy turvy one ... first it was warm - then we had downpours - and now the temps have dipped back down into the 40's at night ... unusual, to say the least, for southern Florida.
    Your plans to a small vacation cottage in upstate NY sounds like a winner. I know what's it's like to plan on staying at a place for a short vacation only to get there and find someone else is using the place. Bummer as time and all one's preparations go out the window. :(

  2. oops - dang, I should always, always proof read before hitting the publish button !!! I'm sure you realized that I meant to type in the word "buy" in the sentence: "Your plans to buy a small vacation cottage in upstate NY sounds like a winner."

  3. Fingers crossed you get your "Dream" house (jk)

    I'm still reeling from our venture into buying another property on the Oregon coast right at the top of the bubble, so of course we lost a s*** load of money but at least we didn't lose our primary home :)

    I keep saying I need to get over to the East Coast to take a look around, I still haven't been there to visit. People are always telling me it is beautiful in a different way to Oregon.

    Have a lovely weekend, cheers, T. :)
