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 …

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.  …

Getting back up – dusting myself off …

After last week’s huge mental blow, DH and I are starting to correct the insurance situation.  I’ve reached out to my employer’s HR, but don’t hold much hope for assistance. In the meantime, I’m cooking like a fiend.  And making cards.  And making desserts.  Apparently keeping busy is helping me … So, we’ve tried a …

Birthdays, Card Making & EPIC

Wrapped up all of my mandatory nurse classes last week, YAY!  Got through the weekend shifts, and heard such bizarre complaints, I can’t even mention them… My goodness, but folks are losing coping skills by the bucket-loads! Moving on … On Tuesday, DH and I made nachos, making the chips (cut tortillas) in the air …

Mildly progressive …

Yep – I’ve been a mildly progressive  BUM this week!  I was helping DH with our pups, moving along stamp identification, making glass, cooking – oh, and catching the last rays of summer sunshine!  [While Monday was cooler temps – so far we’re 5/5 days in the pool and I hope to add one more …

Late to the Party …

In an effort to try to organize my growing stamp collection, I stumbled on a program … Yep – I understand it’s been around for a long time … Evernote (a free organizing app).  So, while I’m watching over my moms and pups, I’m entering lots and lots of data.  I’ve plowed through 2 baskets …

Updates …

I have managed to misplace my creative mojo again.  But – there have been a few other things keeping us occupied lately … We’ve had puppies (again)!  Our Josie had her first litter, so we’ve added four big, beautiful blue babies to our nursery. Josie is doing an awesome job loving, feeding and caring for …
