Boo!

Posted by Sue on September 28, 2006 in Uncategorized |

When I was a kid, it never failed but Halloween would be a frigid, rainy day. Whatever costume you had and were so incredibly proud to show off would be hidden beneath your winter coat, scarf, hat and mittens, only to be shared at the school party or local community costume party. This was before […]

Today’s the Day

Posted by Sue on September 27, 2006 in Uncategorized |

This is what I feel like most days. No, I’m not quite this overweight, but am getting there. Today I started my day with a personal trainer at the local gym. I have two more appointments next week with her, too, and after that I’m counting on the support of my daughter and my daughter-in-law-2b […]

Fingers In The Pointing Position

Posted by Sue on September 26, 2006 in Uncategorized |

Ya know… before you start pointing fingers at my husband, your eldest son, and warming up to send him on a guilt trip because he didn’t drive to Minnesota on Friday to the funeral of his 80-something-year-old-uncle-by-marriage that he’s maybe only seen eight times his entire life and wasn’t close to at all… you might […]

Give Me a G…R…U..

Posted by Sue on September 21, 2006 in Uncategorized |

M..P…Y…! What does it spell? Yeah. Exactly. I’m going to rename this blog the “weather window”. In case you didn’t know it, farmers are obsessed with weather. To be honest, it does have a great deal to do with: a.) how the crop grows b.) if the crop can be planted and/or harvested and c.) […]

Frost on the Pumpkin

Posted by Sue on September 20, 2006 in Uncategorized |

Yup. You heard me. We got frost last night. That, along with the combine going into the field yesterday means fall has “officially” begun. There is an 80% chance of 2″ rain coming in tonight and tomorrow along with high winds. Please keep your fingers crossed this doesn’t happen. Corn blown down to the ground […]

Sending the Love

Posted by Sue on September 19, 2006 in Uncategorized |

Go on over to 3T’s place and wish her Happy Birthday. She’s a really special lady who has been through hell and now gets her just rewards with a lovely hubs (read last Friday’s post by him, if you don’t believe me) and a bunch of good friends. She’s a gem.

Monday Mutterings

Posted by Sue on September 18, 2006 in Uncategorized |

We won’t talk about the football game. I SAID…we won’t talk about the football game. *sigh* Other than that, Saturday was fun. Missed the girl, who had to work, but the rest of the gang made it and we had a great visit with everyone. As usual, I didn’t get near the stuff done I’d […]

Talkin’ To Myself

Posted by Sue on September 15, 2006 in Uncategorized |

One of those days when I got nothin’… and yet, I open my mind and things come out! Remember the No Good Very Bad Day? Would you believe since that morning I have seen four deer crossing the road while on my way to work. Four different deer, four different times. Yes, I’ve been far […]

The Superbowl of Iowa

Posted by Sue on September 15, 2006 in Uncategorized |

This weekend is the big interstate rivalry between the University of Iowa in Iowa City and Iowa State University in Ames. Seeing as we live less than 10 miles from ISU, have two children who are alums of there, have worked on campus in the past, and like red much better than black… well, you […]
