So, I had scheduled a post about my new Espresso Maker, BUT when I went in to write it I realized that this is my 300th post! I never thought, when I started blogging, that I would manage to regularly post because I'm so flaky, but I've maintained a 3-post-a-week schedule. Some of my posts … Continue reading Espresso Maker AND 300 Posts!
Our neighbor just had the tree on the lot between us cut down, and my property has SO MUCH more sun. He was a bit irate - he called the power company to have them turn off power to their property in case the tree fell funny, and the company told him they would just … Continue reading Cutting Down Trees!
I follow various snow dog rescues, wolf dog rescues, and such, and I'm always looking at different dogs. I may like them, but I don't usually do more than gush about one and show my husband. Then I don't think anything more of it. But... I saw a dog at a shelter a reasonable drive … Continue reading We WERE Going to Adopt a Dog
UGH. I was doing SO WELL on the meds I was on, fairly stable, rarely swinging full manic and a livable amount of depression. But I made the mistake of mentioning, at my most recent psych appointment, that I was lactating from the Invega. My doctor immediately wanted to know for how long. Four years? … Continue reading Everything Was Stable So Time For New Medications: Let’s Talk About Weight Gain
This is just a post showing the crate we have for Tundra and the set up. I've had people ask on a couple Facebook conversations, and I'd like to have a post I can send them to. *smile* The first photo is a size/location comparison. He can turn around easily in the crate and often … Continue reading Tundra’s Crate Since It Has Come Up Several Times
We ordered this grill from Home Depot since Andrew was listing so badly and shaking so it was dangerous to cook on him. Sorry, Andrew. This is our new grill, who we're calling Swinger after the brand. She was a HUGE hassle to assemble, primarily because the top and bottom came nested in each other. … Continue reading Meet Swinger, Our New Grill
Happy Easter! This post is a day late, but I do all of my post writing on Sunday, so it's Easter today. We did Easter Eggs at my in-laws' house, and this was the result. I blurred everyone's names since they didn't give me permission to share. But, yes, my drawings are bad enough that … Continue reading Happy Easter!
This cold spell has been hard on the bird population, so we've started feeding again. My husband took some photos for me, and the gold finches were going to town the other morning! It was sleeting, but they didn't care; they were all about the sunflower seeds! And another photo: They're so cute! I just … Continue reading So Many Birdies!
We had a spat of nice, spring weather, and I was loving it... until a front moved through. Because Wisconsin. Temperatures dropped. The wind picked up. I had a combination of an allergy and pressure based headache and miserable joint aches that I could barely think through. It was awful. I ended up taking a … Continue reading A Front Moved Through and It Was Awful
I have a new Doctor, which is all well and fine, except that means I had to have an intake appointment. The Doctors we saw at our previous clinic kept leaving due to conflicts with administration, and we got sick of it. So, I set up an appointment with the same doctor my husband, parents, … Continue reading I Loathe Intake Appointments
