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 …

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.  …

I Only Thought About It Once …

OK, maybe twice THREE times … But the bull-headed ER nurse in me persevered. I am now on the angels-singing side of a maliciously violent bout of GI flu.  Every cell in my body was PROTESTING!  I only thought about going to the ER once (ok so – maybe a few times more than that) …

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 …

News, News and More News …

Another catch-up post!  Heeeeere we go … Eight days after Josie had her babies, our Gaia’s water broke – a couple days earlier than planned and a c-section was in order … Her pups are doing great, however first-time mom (our Miss Gaia or ‘Lady G’) has redefined the phrase ‘picky eater’ – and Mom’s …

A Busy Week …

But a GOOD week!  Our Josie had her babies while I was working Sunday night.  DH kept me updated.  So, we spent our week on ‘pup watch’, with DH taking the day shift and me watching over the nights.  While I miss my studio time, it always amazes me to see our babies grow and …

Silent/Healing …

I’m not sure why I would decide to develop abdominal cellulitis now.  I don’t know how one goes about creating abdominal cellulitis … But, I’ve been quiet lately, in part – because that’s what I’ve been doing/GROWING??? Absolute craziness!  Not what I had programmed.  But, there you have it – this body has it’s own …

So, This Happened …

DH woke me to tell me we have chicks!  OMGoodness, they are so stinkin’ cute! Now the pressure is on him, as these babies will need their coop within the next 3-4 weeks … We talked at length and settled on some plans for building the raised bed garden.  Here’s my non-architect sketch.  Those are …

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.  …

A Quick Escape …

From Margueritaville – where NO Corona is served!  [HaHaHa!!! … while pounding chest!] I received my new Tim Holtz alcohol inks today (ordered back in late January/early February).  So, I had to pause for a moment and try a J.McGuire technique.  Maybe, 1):  I shouldn’t be so SURE of myself [Umm, listen and follow all …
