About Me

I'm a Great Northwesterner that is now loving life in the Midwest. I am a world class napper. I'm very bossy. I clearly love a good glass of Scotch. I wear aprons every chance I get.

EggNog!


Somehow the holidays are getting pushed together more and more each year. And the ONLY benefit of this is that Eggnog is available earlier and more often. YeeHaw to nogged eggs.

And yeehaw to Veterans Day...not only honoring veterans, but also giving me a three day weekend. I'm pretty excited about it.

Tonight my mom and brother were throwing foam balls at each other, hard. There is a no roughousing rule in our house, strictly enforced by my mother...but I guess if you gots to throw some balls the rules just don't apply.

Hey...when the ox is in the mire...........

What? What happens when an ox is in the mire? What's mire? I'm so confused...

Mire is deep muck and mud. When your ox gets stuck in said muck, that's a BIG problem, where ANY solution is welcome and justified.

Actually, its from the Bible...having to do with observing the Sabbath...there was to be no work and very limited activities on the Sabbath...but if your ox got stuck i the mire on the Sabbath, it was okay to pull it out lest it die...cuz waitng until Monday....well, that's just plain silly...so "ox in the mire" is my justificaiton for doing just about everything...
