It’s called FAITH!

…  I needed to remind a couple family members of this recently.  I’m an ER nurse.  [Apparently, I’m also AN ESSENTIAL … (Wow – doesn’t that sound post-apocalyptic!  You and me Daryl – We Got This! )] But honestly – it’s just FAITH …  I struggled with this early in my nursing career.  When we …

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 …

Moving Past a Creative Rut …

Or trying to … I haven’t been making much, but I’m starting to get a bit of the mojo back.  Last week, DH and I went to one of our old stomping grounds (bar/restaurant) to meet up with work friends.  We had a good time, and I made a card for a dear friend (who …

Cuteness Overload!

So, I’ll start with the bulldog puppies.  Even after diving into some home-made yogurt (as seen on Viola’s crusty head), they are still too darned cute.  They love exploring in the yard, climbing rocks, cruising through grass or stopping to smell (and maybe taste) the flowers …     Then we move on to cards – …

Thank goodness for Cute Puppies!!!

Here is the RoBo gang.  They turned 4 weeks old this week, and are loving gruel!  Look at those adorable mugs!   That’s Linda, Newton and Viola … I had some dealings with difficult people this week – at work and at home.   Why do people choose to be rude and ugly?  Anyway, the mojo …

Minimal Adulting …

We got thru tax season 2019.  It was a painful week, but we beat the deadline.  We did ‘OK’ this year – we felt the tax law changes, but came out ‘winning’ … For whatever reason, this year’s tax prep was UNBELEVIABLY painful.  I never wanted to miss a deadline as badly!  So, it’s Friday …

4 Weeks!

Chloe’s babies turned four weeks old today.  Look who’s eating!  They love it, the little porkers! Here’s Clyde, Yeti, Maybeline and the Pigster.  Soooo cute! Chloe is enjoying some downtime, showing us she can still jump onto her favorite rock.  Meanwhile Rotunda decided to take a mud bath … silly girls!   I haven’t been …

It’s Time to Make the Donuts …

Motherhood isn’t always easy … But poor Chloe is doing great!  And her piglets are growing and thriving.  While the Cowbell loves her babies very much, she let me know with a look or two this week that it’s not all bonbons and roses.  My sweet thing! The pups, who are 10 days old, are …

What a week!

Chloe had her babies!  On Wednesday, she started stage 1 labor, and when she ‘returned’ her food, we were off to the vet.  Six hours later, we came home with one groggy Momma and four beautiful bulldog babies!  Here she is loving on her ‘posse’: Life-on-the-outside is settling in (day 1 was a bit rough, …

2017 Goes Out with a Bang!

I got home from work Sunday morning (12/31/17) to find my studio furnace had died, literally exploding within itself.  Fortunately, the damage was to the furnace only.  My studio was a brisk 49 degrees, and the water lines didn’t freeze.   Goodbye 2017 and goodbye furnace. As we roll into the 2nd day of 2018,  I …
