Tinkering …

Cuz – I can.  I’m on vacation.  No – we’re not going anywhere.  But I’m taking a much-needed break from (ER) work… We’ve had a beautiful SUN day.  DH shared his plans to build a deck on the pond … My dad has a birthday coming up … 71 years young.  So, I made a …

She is HOME!!!

After 7 long days, Chloe is home.  Eating, drinking, healing … and cuddling!  And, not thrilled about posing for any photos … That’s my girl!!

Can’t Keep a Good Gal Down …

So  – quite a lot has happened since my last post.  None of which is glass or card making related … Shortly after my post last week, Miss Chloe Cowbella started vomiting … All NIGHT.  She would (on her own) drink water, wait 2-3 hours and vomit it all back up.  Wait a few minutes …

Moving Past a Creative Rut …

Or trying to … I haven’t been making much, but I’m starting to get a bit of the mojo back.  Last week, DH and I went to one of our old stomping grounds (bar/restaurant) to meet up with work friends.  We had a good time, and I made a card for a dear friend (who …

Cuteness Overload!

So, I’ll start with the bulldog puppies.  Even after diving into some home-made yogurt (as seen on Viola’s crusty head), they are still too darned cute.  They love exploring in the yard, climbing rocks, cruising through grass or stopping to smell (and maybe taste) the flowers …     Then we move on to cards – …

Mother’s Day and cute stuff!

We had dinner out with the kids tonight.  Over the years, DH has been fairly ‘privileged’ and/or isolated from dining out (I have food allergies, plus I like to cook).  We went to a nice restaurant, and he nearly choked on the cost of the bill.  But, it was a good dinner, great visit and …

Thank goodness for Cute Puppies!!!

Here is the RoBo gang.  They turned 4 weeks old this week, and are loving gruel!  Look at those adorable mugs!   That’s Linda, Newton and Viola … I had some dealings with difficult people this week – at work and at home.   Why do people choose to be rude and ugly?  Anyway, the mojo …

Sweet Puppies, Mental Health Nite and CARDS …

RoBo’s babies have turned three weeks old.  Their eyes are open and starting to focus, ears are opening (they scare themselves when they growl or bark) and they’re getting cuter by the MINUTE!!! DH and I got together with some of my work gang this week.  Many have moved on from our ER ( – …

Minimal Adulting …

We got thru tax season 2019.  It was a painful week, but we beat the deadline.  We did ‘OK’ this year – we felt the tax law changes, but came out ‘winning’ … For whatever reason, this year’s tax prep was UNBELEVIABLY painful.  I never wanted to miss a deadline as badly!  So, it’s Friday …

And the Family is HOME!

Clyde was admitted to the canine hospital over the weekend, with pneumonia.  He came home on Tuesday, breathing easy and happy to see Dad (DH).  And RoMomma was admitted on Tuesday for pup watch, as she was showing signs of early labor … She and her pups came home today!  So, everyone is home now …
