SO MUCH greenery is coming in, so I took some photos for you! First the ones that I could identify and then our mystery plant. Here's is our rhubarb, already going strong: The lilac bush growing leaves: Chives: The few cherry bushes that survived rabbits this winter: And: The lavender that has come back: And... … Continue reading What, Exactly, Is That Plant?
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
This is, no kidding, so exciting to me! I saw this trellis design here at Seed Savers with a few others, and I immediately thought it would be practical for me. It would fold up, and I was sure the previous owner had left enough wood scrap and chicken wire for us to make it. … Continue reading My Husband Made Me a Trellis!
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!

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!

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
It's FINALLY warm enough that we can grill out! Normally we would be going to our in-laws to grill, but my mother-in-law is unavailable, and they are both in Madison. So we dragged out our grill, Andrew. Why does our grill have a name? Well, Andrew was abandoned in a park in Madison a few … Continue reading Meet Andrew, Our Grill
I had a dentist appointment this last week, and I warned the dentist that, having EDS, it would be hard to numb me and it was likely to wear off early. She believed me, and started me on the middle grade stuff. Sounds good, right? No. NO. It took ELEVEN shots to numb my face … Continue reading Oh, Dentistry, Why Are You SO Cruel
