Eso sí que es.

At least one girl is growing up in this house.  Birthday shopping is done and amazingly, birthday knitting is, too.  Which is saying a lot, since Josh’s birthday socks were something around…4-5 months late? Now, Josh is a boy through and through.  When I ask for a picture, he will smile, but he rarely poses […]

Endless Days

The past few days have been cold, gray and rainy.  Perfect fall weather if this happened to be fall.   The nights are inky black.  Driving at night lately has been a test of my patience with all the rain and impossible visibility.  I don’t want to discuss this at all, but I feel it […]

Belated Halloween

Since it’s almost Thanksgiving here in the States, I thought I would wish everyone a happy belated Halloween!  We didn’t do much in terms of decorating; we only did a few knick knacks around the house.  One thing we do is read Halloween stories every night.  Some of our favorites are Room on the Broom, […]

Sweater Time!

Man, I’m dumb.  Sometimes, I can pick up things so fast and it immediately becomes second nature.  And then there’s the rest of my life where I am sharp as a marble.  For reasons totally unbeknownst to me, I hate reading directions.  I assume I can just do things because usually I can unless it’s […]

OMG I SAW THIS THING TODAY IN MY YARD AND I THOUGHT IT WAS A ROCK OR A STUMP BUT HOW DOES A ROCK OR A STUMP JUST SHOW UP OUT OF NOWHERE WITHOUT SOME FUCKING WIZARD ASS MAGIC AND THEN SHIT IT MOVED AND I WAS LIKE FUCK THAT IS A BIG FUCKING BIRD […]

AK not necessary

As a product of the 90’s, I can never think “it was a good day” without qualifying that conclusion with the knowledge that a Russian assault rifle was unnecessary. I decided we all needed outside time because there was a package in the mailbox and Josh couldn’t get it out by himself.  I figured if […]

Anne Doye

I’m annoyed.  Like, annoyed in italics.  It’s partially due to stressors beyond my control like the Mr. going to the emergency room (three different trips for three different members of our family in as many months) and the upstairs A/C crapping out. And then I found prints on my deck and thought there might be a […]

Deep Thoughts

1. I have this feeling that there is a monster living in the basement of the neighbor’s house. It watches me when I’m on the deck doing deck things: 2. I really like aprons.  This is my favorite one, and I wish I would have had it embroidered but it was a Christmas gift and […]
