My 2001 Subaru Forester was struggling to start, so I brought it in to the shop. They initially found an intake problem and fixed that, and it improved. But then it started giving off blue smoke and struggling more. You Subaru fans know exactly what this is a sign of. Yes. The EZ30 head gasket … Continue reading The Forester Is Dead
I planted a bunch of herbs, and LOOK AT THE WEE LITTLE SPROUTS! They're not doing great, but I MADE LIVE PLANTS OH PLEASE DON'T DIE. A little leggy, but I moved the light down and it's helping! Advice for sprouting plants? Inquiring minds want to know!
I thought growing sprouts might be a good idea. I followed the directions exactly. Changed the water 4 or 5 times a day. They barely sprouted and then died and smelled like FEET. What am I doing wrong?!?
So the grow light set up in the basement looked very nice, but the light was so bright that it looked like we were either summoning aliens with our landing lights or have the largest grow operation East of the Mississippi. Neither of these are ideal. So, I moved it upstairs. Oddly enough, it stands … Continue reading Moved the Grow Light Upstairs So The Neighbors Don’t Think We’re Growing Pot
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 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!
We cleaned our basement! Cleared out empty boxes and made sure that as much as possible was off the floor because we do have occasional trickles of water. Also made sure my emergency water supplies were on the BOTTOM instead of over things they could ruin! Here's a look: The basement came with the white … Continue reading Cleaning the Basement for the First Time
I received several AWESOME gifts for Christmas, including a grow light. There wasn't anyplace on the first floor where we could set it up, so I decided to put it in the basement. So my husband and I cleaned the basement, and I took some time to open boxes I hadn't open in years. And … Continue reading Memories of My Grammy
