Guess what came this week! I'm so excited. I love gardening (even though I'm not the best at it), and I especially love growing heirloom plants and unusual plants. So here's a peak at the cover: I had a lot of fun carefully reading each entry and circling those I was interested in. I won't … Continue reading Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds Catalog Is Out!
Pet owners probably know the pain of this: trimming your dog's toes. Now, this isn't limited to dogs. When we had canaries we had to catch them and trim their little toesies, and I had to with my cat. But Tundra, he's CONVINCED that the clippers are going to take his toes off. This is … Continue reading I’m Not Going to Chop Them Off!
Which sounds dramatic, but that's what it feels like. I've mentioned that have Bipolar I, rapid cycling, but it's pretty rare that I talk about how I'm doing because my meds are good, and my swings tend to both be shallow and short in duration. Not so much this time. There's a hollow feeling and … Continue reading There’s a Dark Cloud Following Me
I sent out some copies of my novel to some alpha readers. I don't expect feedback from all of them - some have health issues or anxiety issues, and I really just sent it to them for fun. Doing this, I might note, is nerve wracking. What if they read it and don't like my … Continue reading When It’s Time to Let Someone Else Read Your Baby
I might have gotten a bit ahead of myself. For Thanksgiving this year I was in charge of Cranberries and making pies for my wheat allergic self. Cranberries, no problem. I make them frequently, often stocking up on cranberries and freezing them after Thanksgiving so I can have them when they aren't in season. Pies, … Continue reading Bake ALL the Pies~!
So, I recently discovered that Washi tape is a thing - thank you, Japan! And it's ridiculously cheap for how pretty it is. I splurged on my personal spending money for this set: I usually buy books with my pittance, but this time I couldn't resist. And look how pretty it is!!! These all come … Continue reading Washi Tape Cuteness!
My father-in-law caught a deer! No photos included, ya'll, because yuck. We went over on Sunday to see him, and he was in the porch, deer hung up, butchering it. It was pretty gory. Which, I thought it would be harder than it was to see the deer. But it really didn't bother me other … Continue reading Chickadees Eat Meat?
Out into the wild blue yonder. Not me though. My parents' husky, Jo. This goofball sitting next to our Tundra: Jo is a cat hunter. My dad was trying to put him out, and there was a cat on the porch, and Jo barreled through the door and took off menacing the cat. Dad goes after … Continue reading Off Into the Wild Blue Yonder
Today I want to share with you my current YouTuber obsession! Shayda Campbell has a page where she works on making stylistic flowers and leaves and other pretty things. They are not photo-realistic or anything of the sort - just pretty! I've mentioned her before, but I've really been heavily watching her lately. Not everything … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Shayda Campbell YouTuber
This last Thursday, my husband and I spotted a Border Collie running loose around our neighborhood. This was about 3pm, and we didn't think much of it as a lot of our neighbors have loose dogs. When my husband took Tundra for a walk later that night, he spotted the same dog, clearly unhappy as … Continue reading Found a Dog; Returned a Dog
