Happy belated Halloween! We didn't think to buy any costume parts in advance since I hadn't felt like dressing up. But then, day of, I DEFINITELY felt like dressing up. So here's what I could piece together using construction paper and basic make up supplies - most of it eyeliner. We had ~150 kids/parents this … Continue reading Construction Paper and Eyeliner
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
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
I picked up petunia's for my mother, but forgot to take a photo of them before we gave them to her. BUT! I gave her some squash plants for her favorite type of squash. Buttercup, I think. I'd have to check the package. They were beginning to crawl out of my closet! For my mother-in-law … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!
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!
I completely forgot to share how my Valentine's Day went! We don't usually make a big deal of this holiday - we're pretty sweet on each other all the time, so ramping that up gets ridiculous. We had some dates while we were dating, but he shows me every day that he loves me. Plus, … Continue reading Valentine’s Day! Totally Forgot to Share.
Crushing Disappointment! I left work early on Halloween so that I could carve our pumpkin with my husband and... it was rotten. *sniffle* So that was not an option. But I did dress up a bit, and my husband wore the cute wolf ears we got at the Great Wolf Lodge. My first two attempts … Continue reading Halloween: We Hand Out Candy But Tundra Is the Real Attraction
We're not dressing up much, but we'll be handing out candy this evening. Our house is popular because Tundra stands at the door and greets all of the trick or treaters. He loves it! My husband has a cute set of wolf ears from the Great Wolf Lodge that he'll be wearing. I'm too lazy … Continue reading Happy Halloween!
We're just short of Halloween, so my husband and I finally went to pick out our pumpkins. We stopped at a farmer's market nearby and picked out one big one for carving and three little ones for pie. The big one wasn't labelled but turned out to be a Wolf pumpkin which made me smile … Continue reading Pumpkin Carving!
My job rents space in a Tech College, and the Tech College was closed the week of July 4th... so I had nowhere to work unless I wanted to drive over an hour to outreach. I didn't want to drive over an hour to outreach. So I used vacation time (I mean, HOW COOL IS … Continue reading A Week’s Vacation = Depression?
