We bought a thing …

Yep – a 5th wheel camper. It’s beautiful and I love it! Here are a few pictures. We have some plans for this home-on-wheels … but we’ll get into that another day. Linda had her babies yesterday … four gorgeous new additions. So far she’s settling into motherhood well, and likes her extra calories (yogurt, …

Summertime 2022

I know – it’s been a bit.  But I am alive and kicking, and enjoying summer pool time, along with Chloe … So, to hit some highlights over the last few months: Our oldest son graduated from law school, and is presently in VA for tax law.  Our youngest (the twins) turned 25, and we …

So now …

The dreaded taxes are done!  Yay!  So now, we can focus on the next job(s) … Our group project is refinishing the hardwood floors.  MY NEXT project is finding and CLEANING this studio.  I’m going to majorly shame myself and post a photo.  It shows just how cluttered I’ve become.  Gah!  In between, I will …

Snow and Play …

We had our big snow storm.  It produced, but nothing overly dramatic.  The pups had fun romping through it, though. Meanwhile, we continue to play in the ceramic  studio.  DH made a Batman mug.  It fired okay (with glazes), but we’ve definitely had some better pieces coming out of our kilns.  And here is our …

Having a GREAT time …

Warning – another photo-heavy post.  But, I’m having so much fun!  DH had a birthday, so I made him a ‘pop-up’ card: And, we’ve been cooking.  I have photos of the jerky we made (pork, beef and chicken), along with the homemade dog treats … The pups love them!  Here’s the link to the dog …

So, today’s update is more about photo sharing – with a little of this and that thrown in … I’m creating in the glass studio again.  I had a request for some rose night lights and spoon rests.  And, I’m playing with an idea for these gnome ornaments and glass paints … we’ll see if …

Another Update and Welcoming 2022 …

Summertime Happiness

What a great week!  We made some changes to the garden this year, adding five 4’ x 4’ raised beds, instead of the one 15 foot bed that I thought I had successfully negotiated for … Why? … Because, DH found these ‘ready made’ containers – and thought they would be easier/cheaper … Silly man!  …

Bombshell-Deadline-Bombshell …

And Finally a GOOD WEEK!!! I’ve been Missing In Action.  I’m sorry for that.  Crummy Viruses, Avoiding Adulting, Dealing WITH Deadlines, and ULTIMATELY – We Are Here! A few weeks ago, I spent some time (FORCEFULLY) visiting a lousy GI bug, but I beat it back and after 3 hard days – I won.  Then …

Finally–Some Mojo!

I found my mojo this week!  We are finally moving things along in the glass area of the studio.  I’m working on an ornament request, but I’m moving spoon rests (no photo) and night lights along too!  Yay! I also had to keep up with the Ladies this week, giving them another ‘pumpkin treat’, a …
