It snowed about 8 inches or so, and it was nasty driving for a few days, but today it's beautiful out. We went to my in-laws' during the storm and came back home for drinks. And then we drunkenly staggered around shoveling snow. It turned out surprisingly well considering my lack of interest in this … Continue reading It Snowed~!
This was another of my Christmas presents, from Sustainable Seed Company, although I got them through Amazon. This is the set I got. (Spoiler: affiliate link!) It was kiiiiind of one I picked out for myself... I did all of the Christmas shopping, so this is what my husband gave me. But I love that … Continue reading Herbs for my Grow Light!
My husband got this set of Mario magnets for Christmas! It's pretty obvious they're not officially licensed, but they are cute and kind of fun!
We cleaned our basement! Cleared out empty boxes and made sure that as much as possible was off the floor because we do have occasional trickles of water. Also made sure my emergency water supplies were on the BOTTOM instead of over things they could ruin! Here's a look: The basement came with the white … Continue reading Cleaning the Basement for the First Time
You would think that, since every other nursery waits to ship, that the Camellia Forest Nursery would also wait until reasonable weather to ship their plants. Nope. It was 25 degrees yesterday when I found the notification that my tea was being delivered. I was at work. 45 minutes away from home. Cue frantic call … Continue reading Oh, Beauteous Day, My Tea Plant Is Here!
So, as is usual on my last-day-before-work, I got my laundry together and waltzed over to the washing machine, set it up, and turned it on. Or not. It didn't turn on. The light was still on, so it couldn't be the breaker. Went downstairs and flipped the breaker anyway. No good. My husband peeled … Continue reading Our Washer Isn’t Dead But it Gave Us a Scare
We follow an Alaskan Malamute rescue, IAMRA, and we try to support them. My parents look there first when they're looking for a new dog, and they've been wonderful. I follow them in their private Facebook Group for prior adopters, and they put a call out for transport help this week. An elderly, blind and deaf, … Continue reading Floofer Transport!
My car has been violently starting lately... shaking and shuddering and sounding downright awful. It's especially bad since the cold weather started. So I finally brought it in to the shop, and my husband was wonderful and drove me to work Thursday and Friday. Turns out a gasket wasn't sealing, so it was tricking the … Continue reading My Car Has Been Violently Starting
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've mentioned it before, but my husband has huge gut issues. He appears to have Celiac's and almost certainly a corn allergy/intolerance, but no matter how careful we are with his food, he just keeps getting sicker. I mean, he's down to rice, peas, and eggs. It's that dire. And if he so much as … Continue reading All Meat Diet for My Husband?
