Ya'll... ya'll, I couldn't wait. I found a Mother's Day present for my mom, and it was PERFECT, so I went in with my brother and went ahead and ordered it, not realizing that the town it was in was ReedsBURG not ReadsTOWN. Readstown is not terribly far... a hike but not impossible. Reedsburg is... … Continue reading Super Early Happy Mother’s Day!
End of the World Bunkers-R-Us
I had a TON of fun looking at end of the world bunkers with my brother and rating them based on practicality, design, whether the close spaces would incite violence, you know, the usual criteria. So far, my favorite is from Atlas Survival Shelters: The Pennsylvania. The image below is, of course, theirs and copyrighted … Continue reading End of the World Bunkers-R-Us
Artsy Birthday Presents!
BEWARE: LOTS OF IMAGES First of all, here's the ADORABLE card my husband got me. I'm only showing the outside because the interior messages are private. He drew in Tundra's paws! SO cute. This year I received quite a few art supplies, and you KNOW I love art supplies, so we're going over them. First, … Continue reading Artsy Birthday Presents!
We’ve Worked in the Garden
This last weekend, we (my husband and brother and I) took a day and pushed my garden a little closer to the state I want it to be in. I didn't clear all of the beds yet, but WOW. Adding edging and mulch makes a HUGE difference. Tundra was very interested in the proceedings. I … Continue reading We’ve Worked in the Garden
Made a few new masks for my brother - these ones are 7"x9" fabric and 9.25" strap on either side. So, that's my news for the day!
And to continue the trend of no photos, let me tell you how I made moving my brother into a whole debacle. You'll have to imagine the apartment and my brother as well since I don't post photos of other people on my blog. My brother was living in an apartment complex that got some … Continue reading Moving Day!
EDS – Even I Can Tell Something’s Wrong Here
My mom began having hip pain and difficulties walking about three months ago, and it progressed so that she could barely stand even with a walker. She was in a LOT of pain. She had me check, and when I pressed where she said it hurt it went 'crunch'. Nothing in your hip should go … Continue reading EDS – Even I Can Tell Something’s Wrong Here
Mary Didn’t Make It
Mary has been a very sick dog with what we thought was a herniated disc, and we were struggling to get her to eat. Early last week she stopped eating, and she started not drinking. We got a syringe (NOT one for injections, one for feeding baby birds) and fed her water through it, rubbing … Continue reading Mary Didn’t Make It
I’m Running Out of Elastic!
Still working on masks! I'm using the pattern from the Deaconess website, found here. These ones are blue on the outside and light blue on the inside, and they're for my husband. Next are a set for my mom. They're pale blue with polka dots on the outside and flowers on the inside: Some for … Continue reading I’m Running Out of Elastic!
Sick? Chest Percussions Are Your Friend
When my brother was little, he was frequently sick with chest ailments that hospitalized him. A nurse finally told my mom about Chest Percussions, and this reduced the number of emergency visits significantly. Not only that, but these are good for chest colds you may have. Are they good for the Corona Virus? Possibly, but … Continue reading Sick? Chest Percussions Are Your Friend
