If you're a Neil Gaiman fan, you probably heard about his event at the House on the Rock on Halloween in 2010. They were celebrating the tenth anniversary of his novel 'American Gods', I believe. (No, not an affiliate link. I'll tell you if it's an affiliate link.) Here's the thing. My friends are HUGE … Continue reading Neil Gaiman and How My Best Friend Rode the Carousal at House on the Rock
So, I had to travel for a work training in the Wisconsin Dells recently, and of course this endlessly stressed me out. I was told my husband couldn't stay in the hotel room, but his parents lived close enough that he intended to drop me off and drive to their house. I haven't really traveled … Continue reading Work Training – Wisconsin Dells!
I have friends coming in from out of state shortly, and I'm super excited! I haven't seen them in two or three years, and we rarely talk online. This is mostly my fault because I go to bed so early. They're free later in the evening, so I miss them most nights. One of them … Continue reading Exciting~! House on the Rock Here We Come
My garden has... gotten out of hand. For some reason, a strange type of grass has seeded in EVERYTHING, and I just couldn't keep ahead of it. Then a heat wave hit, and I was miserably sure the garden was a lost cause. I just couldn't stand the heat to try and deal with it. … Continue reading Clever~! Or How To Garden In Style
My Mother-In-Law went in to get a lump checked (it was fine), and the scan they used showed that she had an aneurysm on her Basilar Artery. It's Saccular and about 1 cm in size. It has NOT burst yet. So this week will be a lot of waiting. Waiting for her to meet with … Continue reading My MIL Found an Aneurysm
So, when we have to kennel Tundra (which is rarely - he goes to work with my husband and pretty much everywhere with us), we give him a bone with peanut butter smeared on the inside. Which may require double dipping. So we have our own peanut butter. To tell them apart, my husband draws … Continue reading Dog Sillies
I have computer back! Which is awesome because now I can do blog posts again. Two weeks of withdrawal and begging to use other people's computers or trying to surf the web on my Kindle was pretty awful. First world problems, absolutely. I did take photos while I was waiting, so here's a silly. My … Continue reading Woot! Computer Back and Amazon Sillies
Just a silly for your amusement, but I bought sloth post it notes. They are SO CUTE. Look at that face. How could you not love it? But that's a weird angle to be looking at it from. It's like I'm behind it. Or perhaps it's on a mirror? Yes, we're a silly couple. This … Continue reading Sloth Sillies
My husband and I were talking recently about what the happiest periods in our lives were, and I strongly believe mine is Right Now. And then I thought about it a little more. Our parents are all alive. Our siblings are alive. We visit them often. In fact, every Friday or so we visit my … Continue reading Those Happy Golden Years
I woke up this morning at 8:30 and thought I was late for work. Note that I have today off, so levitating out of bed and freaking was NOT good for my health. Not good for my husband's health or sense of humor. But I don't have work. *relieved sigh* I'm sure you've done this … Continue reading Oh, My Heart!
My job rents space in a Tech College, and the Tech College was closed the week of July 4th... so I had nowhere to work unless I wanted to drive over an hour to outreach. I didn't want to drive over an hour to outreach. So I used vacation time (I mean, HOW COOL IS … Continue reading A Week’s Vacation = Depression?
Our last storm was a doozy, and when we came out to the car in the morning, there were some casualties. A robin's nest had fallen, tossing two robins onto the hood of our car and one onto the (now) hot road. An egg had fallen too (which is why I knew it was a … Continue reading Poor Wee Little Robins
Happy Fourth of July to our American folks! Enjoy the fireworks, burn some sparklers, and stay cool! No post today. *smile*
