The Dog Days of January

     Um, well despite me saying I was going to do a post last Sunday, things started happening not two minutes later which led to me abandoning my computer and heading to the French Quarter.  Who could turn down a free breakfast at Cafe du Monde and a dog parade?  When I found out our dog nephew, Bacon, was going to be in the 2013 Barkus parade I just had to go.  We were so proud of Bacon who was looking so lovely in his tutu and float.  Please note that the pic is not of Bacon because J has Bacon's pics in his phone and I haven't gotten them on my computer yet.  We were also very proud of Sis #3's sis-in-law, H. who was just as wonderfully loud and celebratory as can be!

     It's been a somewhat mild winter although it's gotten cold enough for our little crepe myrtle alley to have lost all it's leaves...

     but, the hibiscus says it's ready for spring.

     I'm not ready for spring.  Really it's so nice with the highs in the 60s and 70s, (actually I prefer the highs in the 70s please.), that I dread all that heat and humidity and the electric bill that goes along with it. 

     We've got something in the works for the Superbowl this weekend.  I suspect Roger Goodell won't like it.

Blog Vacation

Wow it's been a good long while since I've touched this blog!  Sorry 'bout that, but I stalled out.  It's a new year and well I think I want to start this little blog up again.  I was struggling with trying to keep up with the thing and between trying to marathon finish mom's new home and put her condo up for sale I damaged my right hand.  Apparently if one has carpal tunnel she should not use the palm sander for more than eight hours straight.  The doctor put me on three different steroids which made me angry, no really, I turn into a monster on those things, and get really hungry.  Good bye weight loss and hello permanently numb index finger and thumb.

Anywhoo I lost the will to blog.  I felt like I had to blog with the whole weight loss thing and honestly it became a chore.  I hear that one should pick a direction for a blog and stick with it, well I can't do that and I'm not going to try to do it any longer.  This isn't a blog for weight loss or fashion or how to raise children, this is a blog just because I want to write stuff.  So here I am back to where I started, just writing stuff.  Stuff.  (Ha!)   : )
