Day 42 - Lisa

After teasing my Tia Chickie via our Blog about the "Martinis," she sent me, the rest of the formula for a good stiff drink arrived this week.  LOL Considering the hectic pace lately, it's so very tempting.  I have never been one to go out with the girls or guys for a "cocktail."  Or have an after dinner drink nightly.  I probably drink any alcohol but three or four times a year.  I don't think it's in my genes to just have "one" of anything.

Day 42 - Sis

Once again, an enormous, sad day for music lovers. At the top of her career no one could touch Whitney Houston, at the lowest in her personal life it was hard to be touched by her at all. She was trying but obviously struggling with a comeback, may she rest in peace and may her loved ones be comforted in their loss.

Day 41 - Lisa

Good problems!  Here's one.  In 2012, I have doubled my employee headcount.  Along with that we've increased the coffee usage at work.  It never seems to fail when I go to get a cup of Joe the pot is either empty or has only about a 1/2 inch of coffee at the bottom of the pot or less.  Needless to say, I'm getting frustrated.  So I scored this daddy on Ebay.  Three pots flowing at one time.  I'm hoping to cut my coffee making 50% to 75% each day.  We shall see...

Day 41- Sis

As you may remember, a couple of days ago I ranted on about the Wii remote having dead batteries, meaning I wasn't able to enjoy some entertainment/exercise. I replaced the batteries yesterday and participated in a few games of tennis and baseball. My tennis is okay but baseball proves to still be my sport. Hitting was awesome and I even pitched! This means I hit in three innings and pitched two for my team, winning by seven runs. I'm a rightie and today I feel like someone took a bat to that side, so sore, but I took one for the team. :-(

Day 40 - Lisa

I've been on an entertainment ticket buying spree this wee!  We just saw the Broadway musicial,  Memphis last weekend. Sunday we are seeing Mariachi Los Compros De Nati Cano celebrating their 50th anniversary - Viva Mexico!  In April, we are seeing the eclectic band, Pink Martini, know for their world music of jazz, salsa and other genres.  Wrapping up in May with a night at the Fox Theatre to see Broadway musicial, The Jersey Boys.  That ought to keep us busy.  ;>

Day 40 - Sis

There are many things you miss while driving, for instance, today I saw this rock formation while walking with oneeya, it's not visible from the highway. As we meandered the area I was surprised and saddened at finding the deceased remains of a bird. Was it shot? Did it hit a high voltage wire? I quickly left the scene so that oneeya wouldn't think I had ordered lunch for her. As we proceeded down the byway I believe I may have found a third reason for the cause of death for the unlucky bird; a white and grey cat. There it was, hidden somewhat beneath overgrown shrub branches snd looking mighty satisfied with it self. Almost with a look that said, "Go ahead try and pin it on me." So I turned to the, Mcduff crime stopping recruit, oneeya, to get a reaction as to how to proceed. Sadly I realized she was a Mcduff drop-out and oblivious to the whole mystery.

Day 39 - Sis

It's February, the city was ready, so what happened this year to the "it never snow here, snow?!

Day 39 - Lisa

I can't seem to turn my mind off at night.  I keep complaining about not being able to sleep. My friend found this app, so I downloaded it to track my sleeping pattern.  Whew boy!  Very telling. I always wake up and think "but I was just sleeping so good." And sure enough this little app says it's so.  Thankfully, there's been improvement over the last couple nights. Now if I can just kick my night owl tendencies and actually go to bed at a decent hour.

Day 38 - Sis

Ready, set, you've got to be kidding. Is there a battery zapper hidden in this apartment?! I get my mind made up to get started on some exercise and the only thing I work on is finding some new batteries, sigh. Oh yeah and working on not throwing the Wii remote.

Day 38 - Lisa

Sometimes you just gotta get down and dirty!

Day 37 - Lisa

I caved!

Day 37 - Sis

Trip to Spain. Planned once again, after two or three revisions of the schedule that started four or five years ago. I'm just hoping another cancellation doesn't happen because it will be another round of questions of what I want to do. At this point I'd just like to get it over before I become a historic relic!

Day 36 - Sis

SuperBowl pools and the anticipation of possible winnings are one of my favorite things to play but I have to remember, that just like the game, there are winners and losers. I didn't say I had to like it, just have to remember it. Come on March Madness!

Day 36 - Lisa

I was looking at places to stay in Ronda, Spain and came across this picture.  Um no, my mom can barely stand being in Curry Village in Yosemite let alone I pull up to this gem in September.  LOL
