On the way to seeing the redwoods, we took Hwy 4 for part of it, and I'm just going to say, straight up, that it was THE most terrifying road I've ever been on. Hwy 4 is not a highway. This is a lie. It's a road that narrows progressively as it climbs the mountains … Continue reading Hwy 4 Is So Not a Highway
My husband drove us several hours to see what was the high point of the trip for me: REDWOODS. I have wanted to see Redwood Trees my ENTIRE LIFE. And the road to get there was CRAZY scary, but we got there safely, and we saw them, and I am SO HAPPY. That was Highway … Continue reading We Saw REDWOODS!
While we were in California, we got a really good deal on a Condo from the bride's connections. 10 of us, all family, stayed there, and I took photos because Oh. My. God. I've never stayed anywhere so nice! It was ridiculous... I was SO afraid of breaking things! Because, face it. I'm low income, … Continue reading The Condo We Stayed in was Ridiculous!
I said we went to a wedding, but I didn't mention it was to a California wedding. I don't like saying when I will be out of the house for a few days because that's just inviting theft. But we did! We flew to California, and we had a great wedding. This was the backdrop: … Continue reading We Went to a California Wedding
We're going to a wedding, and I'm going to be wiped. I usually do my posts on Sunday, and I just don't want to bank on being able to do that this time. So, no posts this coming week. See you again in a two weeks! *smile*
I may have mentioned in my last post that my husband drove in a terrible rainstorm to get Noah. It was one of several spread out over several days, and we've had extensive flooding where we are. Our house specifically is six or more feet above flood level - we're not likely to even get … Continue reading Did I Mention It’s Been Raining?
Sunday morning, we got a call from my parents - would my husband be available to drive with my dad and their dog Mariah down to Chicago to pick up a new dog from a rescue? Of course he said yes. So I puttered around the house while the drove down and went to bed … Continue reading My Parents’ New Dog or My Husband’s Biblical Adventure
I received a Bond Sweater Machine as a gift and have been carefully completing the first project with help from videos on YouTube and the instruction manual. It's literally just a square of fabric, but since I've never really knit or crocheted before, there were a lot of errors. (As a side note, is there … Continue reading First Project Bond Sweater Machine
A local rescue had a Puppy Pool Paddle on Saturday, and we went! What's a Puppy Pool Paddle? In short, they rent the local pool and invite dog owners to bring their fluffers, and then they let the dogs loose to play! Here's our boy, Tundra: He was SUPER well behaved and played so hard … Continue reading Puppy Pool Paddle!
Crossing my fingers for all of my Madison friends and family. If you haven't heard, they've flooded, and it will likely rain heavily tonight and tomorrow. As of right now, my in-laws are still dry... but folks not even a half block down aren't. So this has caused no small amount of fretting and worrying … Continue reading Madison Flooded & Bunny News
