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!
I've been making masks off and on as we need more of them, and the most common complaint is that they're too tight. They're not too tight on me, but that's just me. So when my brother needed new ones, I experimented with the length of elastic on them. On my usual masks, the elastic … Continue reading Masks for My Not-So-Little Brother
These are a gift for my sister-in-law, but I'm hoping she's opened her present by now so it won't be a spoiler. I'm not a Harry Potter fan, but she is, and when I found official Harry Potter brand, cotton fat quarters, you'd better believe I snatched them up! And I made masks: Hopefully they … Continue reading Harry Potter Masks!
I've been pretty lazy about my pantry lately. I've just put what I buy wherever it fits, which has caused annoyance when we can't find things or buy things we already have. This is especially frustrating because we're doing our best not to go out shopping because of the pandemic! So I set aside a … Continue reading Reorganizing My Pantry
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
We have a car repair shop near us that we really, really like. I've gone to shops where they ignored me and talked to my then boyfriend - like, this is MY car, and I heard the noise, talk to ME. This shop isn't like that. My husband dislikes phone calls, so I call in … Continue reading Supporting Local Businesses
I planted everything I wanted to start inside in what I thought were decent sized glow-in-the-dark pots, thinking that they would be about ready to plant by the beginning of May. Ha. Yeah, no, the tomatoes had their own plans in mind. They vastly outgrew their pots, so I had to re-pot them before their … Continue reading My Tomatoes Have Gotten Out of Hand
We're allegedly going to be receiving a tax credit from the government. Yes, I get that it's a credit and will affect next year's taxes. We'll have to withhold extra each month to cover it because we're both self employed right now and we withhold and pay quarterly taxes each year. But the question is, … Continue reading We’re Responsible Adults, Really
It's an understatement to say we've all been a little stressed lately. I had been camping this site, watching the numbers climb, and generally freaking out. (As a side note, the website was created by a 17 year old programmer who taught himself to program. Way to go!) Today's numbers: It was obsessive, and I was … Continue reading Shelter at Home VS. Elder Dragons
We've actually opened some of my food supplies because we've run out of a few things but aren't willing to risk going to the store. I have mixed feelings about this - I hoard food (NOT all at once, this is years of 'extra' purchases), and I feel safest when I know I have a … Continue reading Accessing My Food Storage?!?
