No Rest for the Elves …

Here at Clayton Hill.  It’s all good, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Tubby had her babies – 7 beautiful, healthy, fat pups joined our gang on Saturday. DH and I are smoothing out the process of providing 24/7 pup-watch coverage for mom and babies, while still getting chores and jobs done.  As it’s …

Prepping for Harvest Fest

So, we will be off to Brighton Farmer’s Market Harvest Fest in T-7 hours … We put in some work, but we’re as ready as we’re gonna be!  All but Chloe, that is … who managed to catch a few fading Summer-rays in the pool this week!  (She does love her float!) PenDots and glass …

Happy Father’s Day

So, my dad and grandpa got Amazon-love … Umm, without cards!  What’s up with that???  Where are the ‘gift notes’ Amazon?!?

Almost human … AKA ‘I got sick’– i.e. GINGER VIRUS

WWU: I got sick – at work.  For a minute there, I thought maybe DH was trying to take advantage of my food allergies (umm, poison me! – But ya know, my life insurance policy stinks, and I’m not quite THAT paranoid); so maybe it was … – actual food poisoning; – salad  overdose; –  …

Before it begins …

Let me just take a moment to say ~ regardless of how shameless it is … I love how varied my Etsy shop listings are looking right now.  And – public awareness moment:  We have only 55 days until Christmas … Just sayin’!!! But – here’s where I’ll start to get nutty:  I have 2 …

Babies’ Birthday

Had some fun with the birthday kids (the twins) the other day.  I have my son convinced [and dreading the fact] that he’s getting a sewing machine and my daughter is getting a tow bar (a ‘man-gift’ … I panicked and that’s all I could come up with on the spot) for their birthday … …
