I am getting ready to go to my sister's funeral. Yesterday, I reconnected with a lot of relatives I haven't seen in years. Ours is one of those families that only gets together at weddings and funerals. After all the visitors were gone, the family gathered in one room and had a great gab session. Now we need to keep that connection going as there aren't many of us left.

I'm sitting in the sunroom watching the birds outside. Himself tossed a bunch of peanuts in their shells out onto the snow. First the annoying and pushy blue jays came and got theirs and left. Now I'm watching the kinder, gentler tufted titmice hop around until they find the perfect peanut before taking off. They're a lot smaller so they have to make sure the peanut isn't too big for them to fly away with!

So sorry about your sister, Carol. My family (now what's left of us) always has had a blast at our family funerals. The local bassett hound had to run in to the funeral home to greet my grandma's mourners. Getting together with the cousins when Dad died was a scream. My sibs and I were making constant jokes this past summer as we (meaning I, sibs didn't want to touch the ashes) sprinkled Mom at various places around her beloved Lake of the Woods.

+1 Thanks everyone. I am in "frenzy" mode. Cleaning cupboards, washing floors, etc. In other words, keeping busy and not letting my mind go to the dark side.

Can you hear the loons?


I'm prepping dinner, watcing TV, and pretty much doing what I do every night. My pup is just hitting her stride and things are so much more relaxed here... for a couple months more anyway, when she becomes an adolescent

I hate daylight savings time. I will feel tired until we change them back again.

I love daylight savings time! I'm so tired of feeling like it's time for bed because it's pitch black outside, only to realize it is only 7p.m.

If you stay indoors all the time with the blinds closed, DST is never an issue.
