Indian Summer–I’ll Take It!!!

We started this past week off with a huge batch of seafood alfredo – enjoyed by both of us as we worked through the weekend.  And then, this week – while pulling together a quick salad of spinach, carrots, peas, water chestnuts, romaine and a mayo-style dressing, I decided to shave off a few deep …

He Really Only Had One Job To DO …

And, honestly – isn’t that typical!?!  Doh!!!  But we did it!  We got a farming task ‘under our belts’ … I believe our SKOS birds had their best life.  Wednesday afternoon, they peacefully – Met Nirvana; Played in the sandbox in the sky; Found joy … and, Joined My Freezer. Reflecting back, it’s not undo-able, …

Busy … Not Busy –

So, while we have been doing ‘STUFF’ this last little bit, my studio has been quiet.  But that’s ok! Running through some of the highlights from the last several weeks:  A great celebration for Father’s Day combined with my dad’s birthday; Learning how to (and successfully) getting through two broody hens (the POLISH girls – …

And It hurt …

But, I need to move on.  And so – I am trying to move about my days, attempting to do just that.  Unfortunately, I was still hurting, and made mention of that to my work gang.  After a couple of cheap shots, another alpha-nurse tried to slap me down.  Oh … well, dang – this …

What a wonderful day …

The weather was beautiful, our daughter was gorgeous … We had a great day! Moving on … I have a whole week to play in the studio.  I have my garden starts growing … and I’ve roped DH into building one more (of the two requested) raised garden beds.  It’s all about moving forward! The …

Tomorrow’s The Big Day …

Thank you Sweet Baby Jesus(!)   … This wedding has brought a major problem into the light.  It’s good to know your weaknesses, but … DANG! I don’t like public events, massive gatherings or too much PEOPLE-ING.  I can handle all of it at work, as this is what I know.  I don’t do crowded spaces …

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 …

So Fortunate!!!

My Friday started on a scary note … DH came into the studio, said ‘Hi!’, talked for a bit – and then saw all my burn-ables (flyers, packaging, cardboard boxes, junk mail) – and carted them away.  [So, HYPOTHETICALLY, maybe we have always (like 18+ years) burned our combustible trash, as MAYBE we pay for …

IT WORKED …

DH is a happy camper!  Our Corned Beef Soup is amazing, and he has officially requested that it be added to our Recipe Book. Meanwhile, I am crocheting the ‘fast hats’ … here is another ‘Rainbow Plum’ to add to our growing display.  I feel like we have a ‘Baby’ hat, now a ‘Mama’ hat …

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 … …
