Second 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* The house at the top of the hill looked down … Continue reading Finding Your Voice: Practice 08
My Mother-In-Law went in to get a lump checked (it was fine), and the scan they used showed that she had an aneurysm on her Basilar Artery. It's Saccular and about 1 cm in size. It has NOT burst yet. So this week will be a lot of waiting. Waiting for her to meet with … Continue reading My MIL Found an Aneurysm
I took some time off this last week to go up to the Twin Cities and visit my grandpa! My husband and my mom and I all drove up, about a six hour drive total. It was so much fun to see him! I took photos, but I don't share photos of people (other than … Continue reading Visiting Grandpa and Motility Problems
I have a poison ivy rash, and it wasn't even from MY garden! I haven't dealt with the poison ivy in my garden yet. Instead, I pointed out some to my mother in HER garden, and I brushed the plant. **facepalm** I scrubbed my arm with Dawn dish soap and cold water, and I've been … Continue reading Poison Ivy Rash

She is retiring, and we have a new pastor coming in sometime in the next few weeks, but she has been the pastor almost my entire life. 30 years of ministry with us. There were … Continue reading Our Pastor Has Retired

His car was parked, and the other person provided all the information needed, so this Thursday he dropped it off at the auto body shop, and I left early from work to go pick him up. I was 90% of the way there … Continue reading What Did I Do to Deserve Two Cars in the Shop?
We've had an ongoing problem with the neighbor's person who mows running the lawn mower with the shield up and peppering our siding with rocks. Sometimes it's fine, but sometimes it punches holes in our siding. We talked to the most recent mower last year and had no further problems for the year. The person … Continue reading Lawn Mowers Hate My Siding
It has been hot here lately, but I put some time in the garden to rescue our apricot trees. I had originally had rocks around them and peat moss, but they grew over this year, and the rocks made them impossible to mow between or around. I wish I had taken some 'before' pictures, but … Continue reading Gardening in the Heat Is No Fun
Okay, I totally Google-Fued this, and I'm 90% sure this is poison ivy. Other photos: Does anyone have experience with Poison Ivy and can say one way or the other? I Googled instructions for pulling it out safely, but I want to make sure I know what I'm pulling out here. Thoughts? Inquiring minds want … Continue reading Is it Just Me, or Is This Poison Ivy?
So, when we have to kennel Tundra (which is rarely - he goes to work with my husband and pretty much everywhere with us), we give him a bone with peanut butter smeared on the inside. Which may require double dipping. So we have our own peanut butter. To tell them apart, my husband draws … Continue reading Dog Sillies
