Blog Abandonment

Well, not really, but it feels like it. I've had problems with the way this thing is set up and still having computer settings issues. Everything takes time and there have been other things demanding mine. So, no excuses, and none of that "sorry I haven't posted" etc. We all have the same amount of hours in the day, right? I've tried to find more, really I have, hasn't everyone?
I find as I have gotten older I really do need to sleep more than 4 hours a night. For years I could get by on that few, but no longer can I function properly without more. This past week, I have had a difficult time sleeping at all, since the unfortunate front porch encounter with a reptile................ I have problems even writing the word s---e. It was Monday last week, around 7 a.m. I wandered out on the front porch with my coffee, to listen to the birds and watch the neighbors head off to work. I was just standing there peacefully surveying my Queendom, and as my eyes swept over the plants, etc. I see a long yellow and black thing that should not have been there. I screeched and spilled coffee all over the entry way rug and myself, and ran back in the house. Hollering at the hubster, who wasn't dressed yet, then running to get my camera(how dumb is that?) Well, hilarity ensued, and hubster took care of the problem. No details available or needed. Anyone who knows me knows about my history of fear of slithering creatures. Anyhow, the rest of the story, I have been having the heebie jeebies all week. Springtime in Texas. sigh


  1. Thanks for NOT posting any pictures of those darn things!! Just one more thing we have in common! I hate snakes! I don't even want to see pictures of them. I won't wear or even touch anything that even resembles snakeskin. I simply HATE them!!

  2. LOL! Since we moved to the forest I have had to get used to snakes which I used to not be able to even LOOK AT. The kitty brought 2 live ones in last week (and 4 live mice) that I had to remove. If you told me 2 years ago that I'd be doing that, I would have never left LA. Oh, and I have since closed up the doggie door so that fool cat can't bring his friends in again. ;)
