I’m Trying to be Creative …

While I’m down and out! So, my back is not happy.  Apparently, she’s trying to disband from this union.  I’ve been nursing her back to homeostasis, if not happiness – for the better part of a week.  She’s just not falling for it.  I ice, take ibuprofen, ice a bit more, try Ultram, add more …

Bombshell-Deadline-Bombshell …

And Finally a GOOD WEEK!!! I’ve been Missing In Action.  I’m sorry for that.  Crummy Viruses, Avoiding Adulting, Dealing WITH Deadlines, and ULTIMATELY – We Are Here! A few weeks ago, I spent some time (FORCEFULLY) visiting a lousy GI bug, but I beat it back and after 3 hard days – I won.  Then …

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 …

Still Learning – While keeping myself ready …

Again, another week with a huge blow.  It’s not fully understand yet – and I’m giving myself some time … But. it will be okay. I am creating – in the kitchen and with my yarn … Look at this bean soup, along with a nice ham/cheese/egg casserole to keep someone busy …      LOVE …

Over watch – and …

Another catch-up post.  Last I wrote, I was experiencing an internal GI over-haul.  Five days of Jello, water and yogurt later – my gastrointestinal system and I were friends again.  Fearing I was contagious at the time, I stayed in the studio, away from DH and the pups.  Once normal, I hit our downstairs kitchen …

A Hectic Start to 2021 …

Which isn’t a bad thing … just a busy thing(!), as DH and I continue to take shifts watching over our Moms and pups, while squeezing in the rest of our daily duties … Here is a quick photo of some of Gina’s babies, who are 3 weeks old and growing by the minute! I’ve …

Another Catch-Up Post

So, we are cleaning out the garden … gathering up the last of the ‘bounty’ and putting things to bed.  I am currently trying to dry sunflower seeds in my sunny studio window (where all the garden pre-starts began) … We emptied out  our sweet potato barrels … not an amazing amount, but enough to …

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 …

Goodnight 2019 …

Our tax prep is DONE, dropped off to our favorite tax man, we’ll find out how well we did next week.  But, can I just say THANK GOODNESS! It wasn’t all bad, as we took plenty of breaks … Fed the Ladies a bit of watermelon (they love it!); We enjoyed some pool time with …

Hello … Spring???

Where are you?  Michigan and spring are so NOT-IN-TUNE with each other … So, while we’re experiencing frequent snowfall in between teaser-weather days, I’ve been cooking.  We made Seafood Alfredo, a big pot of Spinach Sausage Bean soup (with added vegetables), and tonight we tried Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Pesto – with a substitute … …
