I've been pretty lazy about my pantry lately. I've just put what I buy wherever it fits, which has caused annoyance when we can't find things or buy things we already have. This is especially frustrating because we're doing our best not to go out shopping because of the pandemic! So I set aside a … Continue reading Reorganizing My Pantry
I commissioned some artwork from Ina Wong on DeviantArt for the cover of my Young Adult Urban Fantasy novel, 'Still Water'. You can find her here on DeviantArt, and her work is AMAZING. I gave her a basic description of the main character, indicated she would need to be muscled like a swimmer, and let … Continue reading Take a Sneak Peek at My Cover Art!
So, there's no photos here because I'm wiped. I woke up today and went straight into a cleaning spree. Washed all the dishes, wiped down counters, put items on counters away. Cleared and wiped down center island which is where I found the source of our Mysterious Smell. That would be rotting onions in a … Continue reading Clean ALL the Things!
If you know us at all, you know we have an adorable floof that we dote on. (cute artsy picture of floof) (actual photo of floof) Now that I've shown you his cute, I want to talk about the Vaccine Trial he's in. Three Universities are testing a Cancer Vaccine for dogs, and we signed … Continue reading Participating in a Cancer Vaccine Trial for Dogs
Just a SQUEE! from me because this blog has hit 500 posts! I've been posting since the middle of 2017! I'm not sure exactly which day I started, and I initially had someone who was supposed to help me set up the blog, but that fell through so it was stop and go and start … Continue reading We Hit 500 Posts!
I'm working on getting back to Keto eating. This is THE heaviest I've ever been, and I need to cut down on the amount of junk I'm eating. The first fun thing I did was post Keto magnets all over the fridge: They show net carbs which is what I really need, and I don't … Continue reading Keto Fridge Magnets and Ketofy.Me Challenge
I bought a used freezer, and my brother and dad were nice enough to bring it over. We'd been having issues with items getting lost in the bottom of the freezer. Now I have everything sorted into three freezers: 1. Meats and Meal Prep, 2. Veggies 3. Bread, seafood, dairy, and fruit. The last being … Continue reading New-to-Me Freezer
I'm a fan of Taylor Swift, and she dropped a CD a few weeks ago with no warning. I bought it, of course. There were apparently different versions for collectors, but I don't care about anything but the music. It had a cute surprise in the packaging which is great personal touch for her brand. … Continue reading Taylor Swift: Thank You! This Was Cute!
You didn't think our camping test run went smoothly, do you? Something ALWAYS goes wrong, even when you're camping in your backyard. Friday night, we all piled into the tent. (It says it's a 6 person, and I can believe it!) I even brought a fan out and ran a cord from the garage because … Continue reading No Camping Is Complete Without an Early Morning Crisis
If you know me at all, you know I'm not really a 'camping' person. I dislike lack of running water and electricity, and the one time I really DID go camping in Girl Scouts, the River flash flooded and we evacuated the campsite at two in the morning in rising water that reached shin deep … Continue reading Test Run of Our Tent Setup
