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 … …

Everything’s Roses ….

I’ve taught myself how to crochet.  While I’m only mimicking YouTube videos at the moment, I will double down and learn how to read the directions!  But, here’s what I made this week.     This week was tough.  I will be reevaluating, shoring up some ‘stuff’ and figure out the best way to move forward.  …

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 …

Hello … Spring???

Where are you?  Michigan and spring are so NOT-IN-TUNE with each other … So, while we’re experiencing frequent snowfall in between teaser-weather days, I’ve been cooking.  We made Seafood Alfredo, a big pot of Spinach Sausage Bean soup (with added vegetables), and tonight we tried Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Pesto – with a substitute … …

Bring on the Spring …

I have spring fever.  I am so ready to do some things in the yard.  I’ve been reading up and watching YouTube videos, and I think this year DH and I are finally ready to bring home some chickens!  I’m so excited.  But first, we’ll be converting an old shed into a coop for them.  …

Totally Psyched …

I had a great day yesterday … Started with getting a decent nights sleep (and I say ‘night’ lightly – I finally beat the battle with insomnia at 3am); SANE training for a new nurse in our program (LOVE that – as for too long, I was the only SANE nurse practicing in the county!); …

A New Endeavor … ?

Maybe … but for me, it starts with books – so, I’ve just ordered a few: I’ve always said that someday I want a hobby farm … not a lot of animals, but definitely chickens, a couple of pigs, goats, and maybe a cow. We’ll start with chickens … so starts the research phase: Building …
