I’m Pretty Sure It Was Retribution …

But – only time will tell … On Thursday, or was it Friday(?) of my vacation days … DH loaded me into the car – in the wee hours of the early AM, drove me up to Algonac, and arranged to have my  shoulder SHOT full of [POISON] … Umm, health-saving Covid vaccine! Two weeks …

When You’re Happy & you Know it …

AND I am!  I’ve started the long-list project of turning my old studio into a ceramic studio, clearing out a large (which now will be 8 foot long x 7 foot tall x 2.5 foot deep – THIS is the BEFORE photo) area in our ‘storage’ basement for hydroponic growing; reorganizing the mini-closet/tanning bed space …

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 …

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 …
