Are you done with your Holiday Shopping? Because I'm done! GO ME! I actually did all of my shopping online this year, and the last package has arrived! Now I just have to wrap them. I bought more than usual this year because my mom and dad have to buy a septic tank and so … Continue reading Holiday Shopping: COMPLETE
So, this will be somewhat vague because I try not to drag Real People into my posts, and I definitely try not to facilitate work drama. BUT. We had a regional Christmas Meeting last Friday! We left the office to one of our partners who graciously agreed to keep an eye on things and serve … Continue reading Vague But Amusing Work Things!
Just wanted to share some pretties from an area I'm exploring in Xenoblade II! This is inside one of the titans, and if you time it juuuuust right, sunset will come through his skin panels and light up everything gloriously. I mean, the trees are already pretty, but this is lovely. Oh, and say hello … Continue reading Pretties! Xenoblade II on the Switch
I am in love with this game. My husband took a few screen captures so you could see it. *smile* The fighting is crisp and satisfying with a definite puzzle feel to getting the different arts to work. It's actually my favorite part of the game and is all about timing and slotting things in … Continue reading What I’m Playing: Xenoblade II on the Switch
My in-laws snuck in on Wednesday (they borrowed the house key from my mom) and put a new box spring under our bed! I sat on it about a month ago, and it broke. Like, dramatically cracked and collapsed under me. I teared up and was horrified because OMG the fat, but my husband was all 'you … Continue reading A New Box Spring! Hooray!

Right now, I have two authors I sponsor - Kameron Hurley for $1 and Holly Lisle for $5. It really can be that cheap! It charges me … Continue reading Patreon Fail

If you know me at all, you know that I often worry about The End of the World and that I am obsessed with having adequate amounts of food. Part of this is hoarding food and refusing to let my husband eat any, much to his annoyance... and part of this is me growing food. … Continue reading Gardening with Marjory Wildcraft
One of the odd things about our household is that we don't watch TV. No cable, no satellite, nothing. We don't even own a TV. My husband uses a computer monitor to play his games. But that doesn't mean we don't watch anything! My husband watches the Game Grumps Youtube channel every day during dinner. … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Game Grumps Youtube Channel
Every year our church has a cookie sale to raise money for utility expenses. I never buy any (food allergies), but I always make gluten free cookies to sell. This year, I went one step further and went as corn free as I could manage. I took my grandmother's sugar cookie recipe and used Better … Continue reading Baking for Our Church’s Cookie Sale
