Today is Wednesday, and I'm meal prepping for Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people aren't able to celebrate, but we have an odd situation in our households... Odd as in we work upstairs in the office in their house. We go over to their house almost daily to work, see my mom and dad … Continue reading An Early Happy Thanksgiving~!
There's no photos this time because I didn't remember to bring my camera. My dad and I drove up to our family cemetery in Sparta, Wisconsin. We're related to about 75% of the people buried there, and it's where I hope to be buried some day. (After being cremated, because rotting grosses me out.) Every … Continue reading Family Cemetery Visit
I don't talk about work on this blog, partially because I work with people's personal information, partially because I don't want people hunting my blog down and asking me questions here, and partially because it's a family business, and I try not to share stories that I don't have everyone's permission for. That said, let … Continue reading Positive Feedback, Ya’ll
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!
This is a long story but there are cute puppy videos at the end, I promise! My parents have been looking for a new female Alaskan Malamute to keep Joe, their Husky, company. When he came to their house, they had Mariah, who was elderly. They got along after she put him in his place … Continue reading Meet My Parents’ New Fluffer, Nova Scotia!
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
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!
Did you know that Sunflower seeds come in 50 pound bags? I didn't, until today. I'd been buying 25-30 pound bags, and when it was snowy and hard to find food, I'd take pity on the little feathered beasties and fill the feeder, put up a suet block, and cover all the rails with seed. … Continue reading Spoiled Little Birdies
I might have gotten a bit ahead of myself. For Thanksgiving this year I was in charge of Cranberries and making pies for my wheat allergic self. Cranberries, no problem. I make them frequently, often stocking up on cranberries and freezing them after Thanksgiving so I can have them when they aren't in season. Pies, … Continue reading Bake ALL the Pies~!
Out into the wild blue yonder. Not me though. My parents' husky, Jo. This goofball sitting next to our Tundra: Jo is a cat hunter. My dad was trying to put him out, and there was a cat on the porch, and Jo barreled through the door and took off menacing the cat. Dad goes after … Continue reading Off Into the Wild Blue Yonder
