So Long Summer …

My garden is winding down …. We do have a handful of beautiful sunflowers (standing amazingly proud and tall) in their 5 gallon buckets, as DH wouldn’t let me cut any holes in the black mat he so painstakingly installed this spring … We also have the sweet potatoes, some beets, winter squash and the …

News, News and More News …

Another catch-up post!  Heeeeere we go … Eight days after Josie had her babies, our Gaia’s water broke – a couple days earlier than planned and a c-section was in order … Her pups are doing great, however first-time mom (our Miss Gaia or ‘Lady G’) has redefined the phrase ‘picky eater’ – and Mom’s …

A Busy Week …

But a GOOD week!  Our Josie had her babies while I was working Sunday night.  DH kept me updated.  So, we spent our week on ‘pup watch’, with DH taking the day shift and me watching over the nights.  While I miss my studio time, it always amazes me to see our babies grow and …

Goodnight 2019 …

Our tax prep is DONE, dropped off to our favorite tax man, we’ll find out how well we did next week.  But, can I just say THANK GOODNESS! It wasn’t all bad, as we took plenty of breaks … Fed the Ladies a bit of watermelon (they love it!); We enjoyed some pool time with …

A Hot Minute …

This catch-up game is tough – so many photos.  The garden is rocking, and I’m refraining from a full photo tour … (you’re welcome!)  But, I do need to share a few photos … My experiments are working (so far, anyway)!  My sweet potatoes finally grew some slips, and are now in their own pot …

Bring on the Spring …

I have spring fever.  I am so ready to do some things in the yard.  I’ve been reading up and watching YouTube videos, and I think this year DH and I are finally ready to bring home some chickens!  I’m so excited.  But first, we’ll be converting an old shed into a coop for them.  …

And – In an Instant …

I’m so defeated!  My year has been turned upside down, all on one day.  At first I was incredulous … Then it started sinking in, and my hands started shaking, and then – as I was tearing my office/studio upside down, I broke down and cried. Thus went my Friday …  pre-filled with crazy ideas …

Deadline 2 of 4 & The New Year …

I started the week off by meeting the (latest) new deadline for online work competencies.  Which made the next two weeks mine!  YAY!  We had beautiful skies on Monday, along with some snow fall on Tuesday … I caught photos: [DH and] I gifted ourselves with an air fryer – so we spent much of …

On The Mend …

Both physically and creatively – with baby steps!  I must not have been successful at the dodging-and-weaving game with our swarm of flu/URI-crud patients last weekend in the E.R. … I’ve been fighting sinus pain/snot and body aches this week – the best way I know:  Lots of vitamin C (orange juice), strong medicine (ummm, …
