We went to a relative's high school graduation party, and it seems like there were parties EVERYWHERE. Which makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer after High School Graduation where I was finally DONE with Day Care (I mean High School) and eagerly looking forward to college. I had no real responsibilities, and everything … Continue reading Just a Little Bit of Nostalgia
Taking a break for Memorial Day, see you Wednesday~! It's rainy and gloomy here, and it's ridiculously muggy, but a day of rest is in order. My parents are putting bouquets together from the artificial flowers they bought, and they'll put them in hanging baskets at the family cemetery. They do this every year and … Continue reading Memorial Day Break
Happy Easter! This post is a day late, but I do all of my post writing on Sunday, so it's Easter today. We did Easter Eggs at my in-laws' house, and this was the result. I blurred everyone's names since they didn't give me permission to share. But, yes, my drawings are bad enough that … Continue reading Happy Easter!
The last of the presents I've ordered have arrived! Nothing big, but I did almost all of my shopping online during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and now everything is accounted for. *smile* We were within budget, and we were able to find gifts for everyone in our immediate family. I spent last night wrapping … Continue reading Wrapped and Ready To Go!
I picked up a smaller table from the relative that gifted me with the knitting machine, and it fits SO much better in our house! Here's a peek: I really like how it came out! And I'm sloooooowly but surely working on learning to use it. I will admit that not knowing how to knit … Continue reading Knitting Machine Final Set Up
My husband has gut issues, and is very limited in what he can eat, so when we go somewhere to eat, we need to provide something for him that's safe. We'll be going to the family Thanksgiving thrown by his side of the family, which means... I need to make food. I'll not be Keto … Continue reading Thanksgiving Prep for My Husband
We went to a funeral this last Saturday, and on the way we went from about 45 degrees to freezing and extremely windy aaaaand... first snow! It didn't stick of course, but I got a good picture: It had snowed for maybe 10 minutes in Dodgeville while I was there on October 11th, but this … Continue reading First Snow and a New Coat
My husband and I attended a wedding this last weekend for his cousin, and I'm so happy that she's happy! She's made some major changes in her life, all self motivated, and I've been really impressed with the hard work she put in and her results. It turns out the guy she found actually went … Continue reading October Wedding!
While we were in California, we got a really good deal on a Condo from the bride's connections. 10 of us, all family, stayed there, and I took photos because Oh. My. God. I've never stayed anywhere so nice! It was ridiculous... I was SO afraid of breaking things! Because, face it. I'm low income, … Continue reading The Condo We Stayed in was Ridiculous!
I said we went to a wedding, but I didn't mention it was to a California wedding. I don't like saying when I will be out of the house for a few days because that's just inviting theft. But we did! We flew to California, and we had a great wedding. This was the backdrop: … Continue reading We Went to a California Wedding
