It’s something most everyone will go through in their lifetime: having to deal with aging parents. I have now entered that realm with my father, who has been dealing with cognitive issues for a few years now. Recently he had some major health issues which required surgery. Unfortunately, the anesthesia from that surgery caused an […]

I’ve been bringing in cucumbers for my co-workers. LOTS of cucumbers. One plant will give you more than you can ever eat. And since my co-workers can only eat so many, I wanted to find different ways to use them instead of just slicing them and putting them in a salad. I’ve made my grandmother’s […]

Gardening isn’t for wimps. It’s hard work. Real hard. If you have a garden, this you already know. It needs constant care and attention which, after the end of a long workday, can sometimes seem exhausting. If you have a garden, I also don’t  need to tell you that the work you put into it […]

Recently a listener asked me if I had any new Truman stories to share.  Since I haven’t blogged about him in a while I thought I’d give an update about what he’s been up to. Truman has been busy being part of area parades representing Magic 98. I wear a Magic 98 T-shirt and Truman […]

I’m a big hiker. My goal is to visit all the state parks in Wisconsin, and I have a pretty good start. I love to venture into the woods and hear the birds and see the flora. But there is one thing I do not like about hiking in the woods. It’s the bugs. This past week, I went […]

One of the things I did while I was on “staycation” was clean out my clothes closet. It’s a good thing to do every once in a while for many reasons:  It feels good to clean and purge. It gives you a sense of renewal. When you clean out your closet and donate your old […]

Autumn is my absolute favorite season, but spring, for me, is a very close second. I remember the feeling of “spring fever.” It’s been a few years since I’ve experienced the phenomenon. But it’s a real and true thing that happens in March, April and May. The smell of the air, the sounds of the […]

The planting season is about another month or two away, but I like to start plants early indoors. And instead of spending money on peat pots (which can be expensive), I use eggshells.   Eggshell planters are free (once you buy and use the eggs). They are full of calcium and other nutrients and are […]

One of the things I appreciate about living in Madison is that we are surrounded by water. And where there is water, there are waterfowl. Since I’m a birder, I’ve been enjoying some bird-watching on some area lakes and ponds.  March is a good month to get a glimpse of migrating water birds. This month […]

February is National Heart Month, so how appropriate that it happened to be the month that I thought I was having a heart attack.  It all started one Friday evening when I just felt unusually tired–OK, exhausted. I thought I just need a good night’s sleep and I’ll feel so much better in the morning. Morning […]
