Sunday Paper

We did not get our Sunday paper this morning. I went out at 8:30, then again at 9:30 and there’s no paper. My neighbors don’t subscribe, so I don’t know if the paper carrier came though here or not, as there are no other driveways to check and see if they got one and just not me.

This is so frustrating. I was looking forward to sipping on my cup of coffee and reading the paper this morning to see what all is going on in the world that I can’t find by going online. But considering what we went through last night I’ve decided not to call and complain. Just because we got through this snow storm all right doesn’t mean that the paper delivery guy made out as well.

Saving Money For The Spring Plantings

The majority of my close friends and family are totally into the outdoors in one way or another. Spring is a busy month – what with getting all the much needed spring cleaning done, cleaning up the property from the winter months terror and then you start in with the planting of flowers, bushes, trees along with the fruit and vegetable gardens as well. With all the spring rains that we hopefully will receive, comes the need to get the lawn mowers out getting the grasses under control as well. A busy time indeed and I can’t wait for it to get here. The sooner the better as far as I’m concerned. This cold weather doesn’t agree with me.

This is all pretty hard and labor intensive work each year, but it has to be done and the fulfillment that comes along with the completed tasks is awesome and very rewarding. This past winter was an interesting one (to say the least) what with all the bad news about the economy and the politicians that have been found guilty of so many outrageous behaviors, like cheating on their wives and not paying their taxes. And of course we can’t forget all the drama that went on before, during and after the election. People are getting used to (but certainly not happy with) turning to ways to save money and get jobs done them without having to turn to costly professionals for their equipment and/or their services.  The need for garden equipment these past few years has been great amongst us.

Parenting Discussions

Last week I discovered a discussion board about parenting. The very interesting part of the board is that the users are separated geographically, with one board for parents in New York City an another board for parents in San Francisco. Evidently, plans have been made to bring on more cities in the near future.

In the meantime, it is amazing to read the different attitudes between parents on the two coasts. This is beyond mommy blogging and quite an introspective on mothering differences. And, of course, I have opinions on several of the topics, so I have made a few tentative posts to see if my thoughts are received well or will I be flamed for my opinions?

A New Beer For Women

I just heard about a new beer that is being promoted in the state of Maryland specifically for women called Chick Beer. Now how cool is that? It is supposed to be a premium light American lager, which sounds perfect for what I like in a beer. I can’t wait until it hits the grocery stores around my area, I’m anioux to give it a try because I am also told that they are going to be donating a part of their profits to charities that are out there that are helping to empower women and I’m totally down with that!

No

This is currently my favorite Meghan Trainor song. She just keeps pumping out the hits. Her and Katty Perry just float this girl’s boat! They are always about some type of “Girl Power” and since I am a product of the 1980s the Spice Girls were a huge influence on girls of all ages back then!
