See this creepy light in my closet? Let me explain: I ordered some pots recently to start plants in. I wanted to give more room for the plants to grow and not have to re-pot them multiple times before they went outdoors. Oddly enough, the blue and white pots were the same price, so I … Continue reading Glow-in-the-Dark Items Are Eminently Superior
We had our local Chili Cook-Off recently, and it's always followed by an auction to raise money for Church events. There's a pie and cake auction and a general auction. I can't eat most pies or cakes (wheat!) but I usually at least look at the auction items. This year, I didn't attend, but my … Continue reading Thoughtful Presents
I'm going to make a confession here. I swear. A LOT. Like a sailor in fact. My family is full of Actual Navy Sailors (for realz!), and I learned from the best. They are inventive and come up with new and exciting combinations of ways to offend other people. I also play video games. A … Continue reading I Have SUCH a Foul Mouth – Why Aren’t You Seeing It?
This is a blog, and there are no restrictions on who can see it, so it's obviously a public space. My life with my husband and puppy is not visible on the Internet unless I post about it, so it's a private space. The problem is when I post publicly what's going on in my … Continue reading Navigating Public vs Private Spaces – How Does That Work?
It's that time of year again! My church has a Chili Cook Off each year to raise money for mission work. My mom and I usually enter, of course. So here's MY Chili Recipe, created through meshing family recipes and adding what I love. It's only mildly spicy: Ingredients: 2 lbs ground beef 1 can … Continue reading Chili Cook Off! Here’s the Recipe
Every so often, the powers that be on YouTube suggests something that is both interesting to watch and so chill that it's a breath of air after a long day. (Previously it was a painting restoration specialist, and I'm not sure I've linked to him - I'll have to check.) Currently, it's Trenton & Heath's … Continue reading ITJFU: Trenton & Heath Shoe Repairs
Eleventh 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* Terri hurried to the shop ahead of the storm, terrified of … Continue reading Finding Your Voice: Practice 11
I want to start the week out with another Interesting Thing Just For You from YouTube! (And today I realized I'd been abbreviating it wrong: it should be ITJFY. However, I've been titling that way for a while, the tags all match it, and it's kind of cute, so I don't see a reason to … Continue reading ITJFU: Marriage & Motherhood YouTuber
Did you know that Sunflower seeds come in 50 pound bags? I didn't, until today. I'd been buying 25-30 pound bags, and when it was snowy and hard to find food, I'd take pity on the little feathered beasties and fill the feeder, put up a suet block, and cover all the rails with seed. … Continue reading Spoiled Little Birdies
I fell off the Keto Wagon for Valentines, and I'm making up for it with meal prep! In on of the Facebook Groups I follow, someone doing Dirty Keto showed how they use pre-made spice mixes to meal prep. This is a fabulous idea. I almost never like what I cook, but I DO like … Continue reading Meal Prep!
