Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I don’t have anything else to talk about […]

Yesterday was another hot, miserable day here in west-central Alabama. As I said I planned to do in yesterday’s blog, I took advantage of having to be indoors to get a lot more writing done in my new Tinder Street book. But it wasn’t always easy. It didn’t help matters that our internet was flaky […]

If you are among the millions of Americans in the path of the vicious storm systems that are tearing through the country, please be careful and take care of yourselves.

It was a beautiful day yesterday, with temperatures in the mid-80s and a lot of blue sky overhead. A perfect day for mowing, and that’s what we did for most of the day. But before that, I picked a few strawberries from one of Terry’s raised garden beds, and they are sweet and delicious. Terry […]

We’ve only got a couple more days before Terry’s folks arrive from Arizona for a week-long visit, so we are down to the wire trying to get things done before Wednesday. There’s a lot we want to get done, and hopefully we’ll accomplish it all. Yesterday, I use the weed eater to trim up around […]

Anybody who’s ever had a colonoscopy knows that the prep is so much worse than the actual procedure. Terry had already been sick for a week, and going through that sure didn’t add to her comfort level. But she’s a trooper and she got through it yesterday morning, getting a report including photos that all […]

The temperature here in west central Alabama has been miserably hot this week. The last few days have been in the upper 90s with a heat index of anywhere from 105 to 110 degrees. Yesterday afternoon I had to go out to the garage for something, and the thermometer in there said it was 102 […]
