It snowed about 8 inches or so, and it was nasty driving for a few days, but today it's beautiful out. We went to my in-laws' during the storm and came back home for drinks. And then we drunkenly staggered around shoveling snow. It turned out surprisingly well considering my lack of interest in this … Continue reading It Snowed~!
This was another of my Christmas presents, from Sustainable Seed Company, although I got them through Amazon. This is the set I got. (Spoiler: affiliate link!) It was kiiiiind of one I picked out for myself... I did all of the Christmas shopping, so this is what my husband gave me. But I love that … Continue reading Herbs for my Grow Light!
I received a grow light for Christmas from my mother-in-law and it's WONDERFUL. I've wanted grow lights for years, and so this was super happy making! This was the sole reason we cleaned the basement! Here's what it looks like assembled: It was moderately easy to put together, but I wasn't able to push all … Continue reading Grow Light Huzzah!
My husband got this set of Mario magnets for Christmas! It's pretty obvious they're not officially licensed, but they are cute and kind of fun!

She has been having a hard time, and I remembered that she loved making Gingerbread Houses, so I picked one up … Continue reading Puzzling the Neighbors – Gingerbread House Edition
You would think that, since every other nursery waits to ship, that the Camellia Forest Nursery would also wait until reasonable weather to ship their plants. Nope. It was 25 degrees yesterday when I found the notification that my tea was being delivered. I was at work. 45 minutes away from home.

So, as is usual on my last-day-before-work, I got my laundry together and waltzed over to the washing machine, set it up, and turned it on. Or not. It didn't turn on. The light was still on, so it couldn't be the breaker. Went downstairs and flipped the breaker anyway. No good. My husband peeled … Continue reading Our Washer Isn’t Dead But it Gave Us a Scare
