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… Read More

Busy Week … But, Not Done YET!!!

So, just to shake things up a bit this week, DH fully embraced a senior moment.  He gave Clyde his dose of naproxen, instead of Clyde’s dose of Zyrtec.  Meanwhile, I was cruising along at 80MPH, whistling a happy  tune in the… Read More

They’re Done … Almost

I spent the better part of the week bringing the spoon rests thru to their final slump.  All but three.  This other one had air bubbles I didn’t like, so it’s in the baby kiln for a flip and fire, along with… Read More

Some cookin’…

A Good Week …

Our Xena had her babies on Sunday – four beautiful pups joined our crew.  Here’s a quick pic John sent me while I was at work.  [Better photos to come …] And, DH turned another year older this week.  So, we started… Read More

Bits & Spurts …

That’s how my week felt, creatively speaking.  I struggled with card making, but finally got a miserly-few made.  I stamped these pretty layered dahlias.  And then had no clue how to pull the backgrounds together.  I’m not a huge fan of patterned… Read More

More Baby Steps …

Cuz that’s how we move forward!  But first … Look at this!  Aunt Piggy and Uncle Clyde ‘lording’ over the Neo babies … Too Cute! And back to baby steps:  We got the new shelving unit up – and full.  I like… Read More
