We're just short of Halloween, so my husband and I finally went to pick out our pumpkins. We stopped at a farmer's market nearby and picked out one big one for carving and three little ones for pie. The big one wasn't labelled but turned out to be a Wolf pumpkin which made me smile … Continue reading Pumpkin Carving!
After a great deal of research, we decided to try out a Zinus mattress, this one in fact. No, these are not affiliate links. No, we weren't sponsored. We got it on Wednesday, and the box was so heavy I had to rock it inside! But we set it up, and then we were out … Continue reading Bed In A Box: Zinus
We went to a funeral this last Saturday, and on the way we went from about 45 degrees to freezing and extremely windy aaaaand... first snow! It didn't stick of course, but I got a good picture: It had snowed for maybe 10 minutes in Dodgeville while I was there on October 11th, but this … Continue reading First Snow and a New Coat
Our mattress has reached the point that it's extremely painful to sleep on it, despite rotating it, so I'm going to have to look at getting a new mattress. Our range is $250-$350 (I know!) and we wanted to get one of the foam ones off of Amazon. Does anyone here have experience with them? … Continue reading Need to Buy a Mattress
My husband and I attended a wedding this last weekend for his cousin, and I'm so happy that she's happy! She's made some major changes in her life, all self motivated, and I've been really impressed with the hard work she put in and her results. It turns out the guy she found actually went … Continue reading October Wedding!
It's been wet and soggy for it seems like months now, and everything is growing green and damp. Our porch is made out of untreated wood - before our time, and we haven't dealt with the yet. I didn't really think much of this until Wednesday. I ran down my back stair, and two steps … Continue reading Fell Through Our Porch Steps
Tenth practice from the Finding Your Voice class I bought from Holly Lisle. This is not an affiliate link, although if you decide you want to buy a class from her, you can contact me, and I’ll set one up so we both benefit. *smile* Boarding school looms before me, and with it the dread of returning … Continue reading Finding Your Voice: Practice 10
Our apples look pretty awful. I thought they were ruined, but looked them up online and found that it was likely Sooty Blotch and Flyspeck which are apparently the same fungus. Found some information here. They're safe to eat, but they look terrible! So I peeled one. And sliced it. And had lovely little apple … Continue reading Our Apples – Sooty Blotch and Flyspeck
We just had our 5 Year Wedding Anniversary, which to some folks may not seem a lot, but we were excited. We've been together for 9 years plus some change, and we've had our house and dog 5 and 1/2 years. Our first year in this house was pretty eventful: bought a house, found a … Continue reading 5 Year Wedding Anniversary
Or 'Buying Shoes Sucks'. We buy shoes very rarely, pretty much only when the old pair is nearly destroyed (or in my husband's case entirely destroyed). This weekend we had to concede defeat and get both normal shoes and motorcycle boots for my husband as both had bit the dust. For most people this is … Continue reading My Husband Has Flat Feet
