The Survey in Day by Day

Have you ever flown first class? Yes. Would you rather read books or magazines? I don’t have a preference. I just read. Have you ever seen a shooting star? Yes. I believe Nicholas is nearby when ...

Still Sick in Day by Day

I’m having a difficult time shaking this illness. It’s settled deep in my chest. If I can’t shake it by next week, it’s back to the doctor I go. Not much else to report because I just haven’t don...

Under the Weather in Day by Day

I’m really dragging these days. Deep chest congestion and the antibiotic is only helping a little. I slept 11 hours on Sunday and had no trouble falling asleep that night (was sure I would). I ju...


Man, my computer is glitchy today! I read an entry, go to comment, and something goes wrong. Either I get signed out or the page changes or the site crashes. Sorry to those I missed. I’ll catch u...

Holidays and Headstones in Day by Day

Thanksgiving was busy but successful. Everyone brought a side dish, so it took a lot of the workload off my shoulders. I’d made the turkey-shaped butter pats, cranberry sauce, and the dressings a...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! in Day by Day

I probably won’t have many moments to get online tomorrow, so I’ll take time now to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving Day if you are celebrating. I won’t be stressed tomorrow. Most of my work is ...

Boston Trip, Part Eight in Day by Day

Day Eight (Saturday) was less hectic than anticipated. Flight plans changed and we had extra time on our hands so we went to the Museum of Fine Arts until 1:30, I loved John Singer Sargeant p...


Day Seven (Friday) was tinged in sadness as we spread my oldest brother’s ashes on the graves of my father and my youngest brother. My middle brother’s ashes have not been spread yet. I’m still a...


Day Six (Thursday) was our second try for Salem and was a disappointment. It was mostly gift shops (heavy on the Harry Potter) and even the witch trial was so-so with only two actresses portrayin...


Day Five (Wednesday) was a pretty day. We spent the morning visiting with my step-mother and her husband, then stopped for an Italian grinder for lunch on our way to Salem, both of which were a d...


Day Four (Tuesday) was spent doing the traditional shopping on Bearskin Neck. I notice that each time I return there are fewer art galleries and more gift shops, all selling the same touristy stu...


Oh, this entry will drive those with slower computers crazy, but Day Three (Monday) started early and busy, from Boston in the morning to Rockport in the afternoon. Our foster daughter left us f...


Day Two (Sunday) began with a breakfast of cannoli at Mike’s Pastry After that, we did the tour of the Paul Revere House The only bell that Revere cast. It was rung one time: at Paul’s funera...


I’ve fallen woefully behind and getting pictures uploaded in addition to catching up on business paperwork that piled up while I was gone has become a bit overwhelming, so I’ll just break these e...

Travel and Other Plans in Day by Day

Time does fly. I will be, too, at the end of the week. I doubt I’ll be online very often while I’m in New England. We have a full agenda: Freedom Trail in Boston, a couple of days in Rockport, e...


A busy week is before me. I have a meeting tomorrow with a financial advisor for the non-profit, so I’ll also be working on compiling all the needed information for him. He’ll look it over and de...


The wind was still gusting the next morning and there were obvious signs that the storm had been ferocious: most notably, standing water in the low-lying areas of our yard and tree limbs EVERYWHE...

Hurricane Irma, The Visit in Day by Day

Most models took the storm into the Florida Keys and up the spine of Florida and Irma pretty much followed the model’s path, tearing through the Keys and hitting Marco Island and Naples hard with...


I’m starting to jot down thoughts on the recent storm. Over and over and over there is mention of the boys helping us to get ready, get through, and regain stability. I couldn’t ask for better so...

I'm Here in Day by Day

I just don’t have time to do it all and PB is one of those casualties. My sis-in-law and nephew are here for a few days until power is restored in Naples. We’re having these long discussions on ...

Updating the Update in Day by Day

Power is on. Cable is out but eldest brought me his firestick and once I learn that (can’t find the guide again and all the people who know are asleep), I can watch something besides ABC. What a ...

Power Goes On and Off in Day by Day

A quick update: we lost power again last night around 7. It was still light outside, so we just went about unpacking the lighting we’d put away, pulling out the generator and hooking it up to the...

We're Okay in Day by Day

Power is back on. Stories to tell, but clean-up first, so I’ll be back later. Damage was minimal: loss of power, a LOT of tree limbs down, but no trees on house, no broken windows, and the roof h...

UPDATE POWER OUT in Day by Day

Doing this on my phone. Power went out at 3:20 this afternoon. Storm is picking up. We ate early and the dishwasher got through most of the cycle. So no shower tonight but we won’t be hungry. :) ...
