Getting Stuff Done …

Slowly, but surely!  We did a bit of spring cleaning in the studio, as my packaging room was over-run with more boxes than I would ever need for shipping.  There is no before photo, but trust me – it was crazy out-of-control.  And, I tried to reorganize one of my storage/display shelves … There is …

Umm, Still Learning …

With a Twist!  I am staying on top of my work duties:  Dogs, email, nursing, cooking, family …  I’m also keeping on top of the Ladies … Poor Miss Hannigan is being picked on – So we have ‘Blue Kote’ to try to help her.  I’m still trying to figure this chicken hierarchy out … …

Still Learning – While keeping myself ready …

Again, another week with a huge blow.  It’s not fully understand yet – and I’m giving myself some time … But. it will be okay. I am creating – in the kitchen and with my yarn … Look at this bean soup, along with a nice ham/cheese/egg casserole to keep someone busy …      LOVE …

Over watch – and …

Another catch-up post.  Last I wrote, I was experiencing an internal GI over-haul.  Five days of Jello, water and yogurt later – my gastrointestinal system and I were friends again.  Fearing I was contagious at the time, I stayed in the studio, away from DH and the pups.  Once normal, I hit our downstairs kitchen …

A Hectic Start to 2021 …

Which isn’t a bad thing … just a busy thing(!), as DH and I continue to take shifts watching over our Moms and pups, while squeezing in the rest of our daily duties … Here is a quick photo of some of Gina’s babies, who are 3 weeks old and growing by the minute! I’ve …

Goodbye 2020 …

So, another catch-up post.  I’ve been missing in action because my alien baby, Hollis decided to come back (abdominal cellulitis) about 3 weeks ago.  I had daily visits to my Doc for antibiotic injections, changed up the oral antibiotics and I’m now waddling with a 5-6 month pregnant-look (improved).  Fun times! We managed a vitrigraph …

Thanksgiving High …

to a nursing LOW … But first – we had a wonderful Thanksgiving, our kids, et. al. joined us for our (now traditional) bacon wrapped herb/butter encrusted masterpiece. [OK – this one was not so beautiful on the outside – I opted for thick-cut bacon … delicious, but not so pretty!]  Even our oldest seemed …

Love Those Date Nights …

So we made the soup last week – the creamy cabbage kielbasa soup.  It was delicious! And then I moved on to some studio cleaning and glass slumping.  I had a small mishap with my spoon rests, as it’s been ages since I re-applied kiln wash, so after ruining 3, I’m prepping those molds with …

Family – We Had Them out …

It wasn’t quite the way we planned, but we had all of our kids over for dinner.  It was supposed to be something along the line of mano a mano … So that we could spend time with each of our offspring in a meaningful way, with good food in a relaxed atmosphere, making each …

It’s All Good …

Lots of time spent talking with my family this week, and in the end, it’s all good! In between phone calls, I wrapped up my spoon rests and got a few Etsy listings completed.    Then I made a 3 pound meatloaf to keep DH happy while emptying out left-overs in our fridge, and checked …
