Pumpkin spice time again!?

Hey, everyone! First, the weight - it's up a tad: 206.2 but I'm actually okay with that, as it was MUCH higher earlier in the week. Now that the weather is finally cooling down a bit so's we're not actually melting every time we set foot out the front door, and it's actually possible to … Continue reading Pumpkin spice time again!?

20 years already? Sigh …

Wow, has it really been 20 years since September 11, 2001, that beautiful morning when the sky was blue and the sun was shining and the autumn leaves were just starting to turn ... and four planes were hijacked? Sometimes it seems like just yesterday ... sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago. Anyway, given … Continue reading 20 years already? Sigh …

Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

Well, howdy, pardners! First of all, let me give you the EXCELLENT news that Pumpkin Spice, who last week we were convinced was lost forever, decided to pop back into existence from that rip in the time/space portal she'd disappeared into the previous week! So we're happy about that! Only she had a humungous horrible … Continue reading Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

Pumpkin Spice, you were (and hopefully still are!) very nice; and no, Diet Coke is NOT addictive, at least for me!

Well, it's been a rather sad week in the 50by60 household, as one of our little cat pals, Pumpkin (full name: Pumpkin Spice) hasn't been seen since last Friday. Given the nature of how things work, we are hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. It is theoretically possible she is out on … Continue reading Pumpkin Spice, you were (and hopefully still are!) very nice; and no, Diet Coke is NOT addictive, at least for me!

I know I say this every week, but…

Hey, everyone! I know I say this every week, but I really do have to keep this short 'n sweet (like me, hee hee)! Reason being I have a doctor's appointment this morning, so I don't wanna get all caught up in the adrenaline of writing a killer blog post and wind up being late … Continue reading I know I say this every week, but…

It’s “House”! (Well, maybe!)

Okay, first things first -- I *think* I've picked my new binge watch, and (drum roll please), I *think* it's gonna be this guy: Yup, it was a toss-up between Gregory House, M.D. and the American version of Betty, la Fea. However, since Mr. 50by60 and I have been enjoying her newer series, Superstore, together, … Continue reading It’s “House”! (Well, maybe!)

What, ANOTHER blogging break? and help me choose my next binge watch!

Well, good morning, everyone! Yes, I've decided to magnanimously grant myself yet another "blogging break," mainly because I'm hoping to be able to get up and go out for a walk this morning before it gets too hot. And I think I deserve it! Although my weight is up a tad, 203.6 it's still below … Continue reading What, ANOTHER blogging break? and help me choose my next binge watch!

Progress! (and yet another commitment)

Well, welcome back, everyone! Yeah, it looks like after enjoying the freedom to gasp and wheeze without a mask at the gym, we're gonna have to go back to those hated cloth diapers indoors for a while longer. So if you haven't yet been vaccinated, this might be a good time to do it, so … Continue reading Progress! (and yet another commitment)

That’s so c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶ sensible it just might work!

Well, I'm a little down today-- No! Not that way! I'm actually happy today BECAUSE I'm a little down! Urgh-- I mean, my WEIGHT is down! 204.6 Get it? Anyway, it's taken me several years of blogging to figure this out, but last week, instead of posting my weight and then immediately heading out to … Continue reading That’s so c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶ sensible it just might work!

Everything new is old again!

Well, good morning, everyone! This will be a (relatively) short post as I am all atwitter about a new author I discovered this week, and want to hit the bookstore to see if she's written anything else! The book is called "I Met A Traveller In An Antique Land," by a young, unknown named Connie … Continue reading Everything new is old again!
