Posted December 22, 2009

I went to print my Christmas Newsletter and ran out of ink - and the cartridges are "in a box someplace" as is a lot of stuff I am looking for.

Moving on
Posted November 24, 2009

About this time last year, I posted a message about All I want for Christmas is to save my house.  Well, it didn't happen.  The mortgage co went back on me.  So I came out of mydarkness, put the house on the market, and found this beautiful rental home.

Count Oreo
Posted October 31, 2009

We were at the dollar store and, well, I couldn't resist.  What would look better on my little, shiny Tuxedo Cat?  He tolerates bow ties off and on - he has his everday red tie, black tie for New Years Eve and a Red and Green tartan for Christmas...

Next bike???
Posted October 15, 2009

My mom's fiance, Bill, got a 2010 Ultra Classic LImited Edition.  I got the opportunity and privelege to take it aroundthe block!   It is has a beautiful paint job - black ice - which looks blue sometimes, purple sometimes, black sometimes.  It handled very well too - which surprised me.  It was a 300 pound jump from my bike!

Then and Now
Posted July 27, 2009

Years ago, my father shot a picture of me up at Tahoe riding a moped, and later gave it to me, framed, calling me a free spirit.  We went to Tahoe and decided to shoot the picture - 30 years later.

ABCs of Touring
Posted June 28, 2009

This weekend, for the first time, I did the ABCs of Touring in a day.  What it is is you go to a city or county, for each letter inthe alphabet, get your photo taken in front of a sign with your bike, holding an issue of HOG Enthusiast magazine.  We started at 5:45 am and got to Quincy at 5:35 pm.  What a DAY...and then we came back...

Homespun
Posted June 13, 2009

I've watched this lady out at the Alameda County Fair for years -- she spins.  It's fascinated me for about 10 years that I've been going out there and visiting the building with the old machinery and have often thought "I have a LOT of cat hair....why not spin it?"

I Got a Free TV - Yes, Really
Posted May 17, 2009

I love Fremont Freecycle!  In case you are going "huh?" what Freecycle is is a bunch of location-specific Yahoo Groups where you can literally offer something you are giving away - or if you are looking for something, you can put "WANTED: such and such."  You have to act quickly if you find something you want though.  Such was the case on Friday night when i saw OFFER:  26" Flat TV.  I jumped on it.

Sushi Tonight?
Posted April 26, 2009

I recently brought the aquarium in from the office - since I am working fulltime I no longer have the luxury of working from home from my Garden Retreat, and that's where the fish tank was.

The 2009 Garden is In

Yesterday I headed over to Regan's Nursery to get some tomatoes - they have everything, so I was able to get some unusual varieties.  4 cuke plants - 1 of them is Lemon Cucumbers, and this year I put in canteloupe and strawberries.

Bomber
Posted April 13, 2009

Bomber loves to play in the cat tree and I caught him dangling the kitty.  This reminded me of the Michael Jackson Incident where he dangled one of his kids over the edge of a balcony.

The kitchen has recently gotten some nice little upgrades - nothing major like new cabinets or anything, but a fresh coat of paint, a new refrigerator, stenciling and cabinet knobs.

My last day of Unemployment...
Posted February 23, 2009

So I get to start a new job where I get to do all kinds of web geek stuff - my kind of fun.  You know what they say - "Do something you love and you'll never work another day in your life."  Yep.   So, on my last day of being nemployed, I put together an organizer for my belly rings.  It's amazing how many I've collected since I took the dare and got it done 6 months ago.  (I just changed it for the first time days ago)...

Cats are such funny creaures.  One afternoon I came in from my office and noticed that Simone was in a basket on my kitchen table fast asleep.  She fit perfectly as you can see.
