I got a vinyl sticker this week of a hedgehog with a note that says 'free hugs!'. I find this hilarious because my husband teases that I'm a hedgehog, and I LOVE hugs. So I left it on his computer keyboard. When I came back to my computer I found this: I cracked up. Hedgehog … Continue reading My Husband Has THE Best Sense of Humor
Last night we built a chicken coop for our little chickies. And by 'we' I mean my husband did most of the work. There is still a run to construct around it, and there's a second coop for the bantams because they're getting picked on. Photo dump because I love this coop and how straightforward … Continue reading We Built a Chicken Coop!
For the last 100 miles back from South Dakota, we got to listen to the dulcet sounds of a wheel bearing failing. So, we brought that in to the shop yesterday. They trusted our assessment of what the problem was enough to order the parts without seeing the car. It was, in fact, a wheel … Continue reading The Dulcet Sounds of a Wheel Bearing
We have a chipping sparrow that has been fighting his reflection in our windows all week, and he was starting to look a bit beat up. So my husband came up with a solution! I found this on my desk when I woke up: Which, not going to lie, I was little confused until I … Continue reading In Case of Chipping Sparrow
I posted a while back that we got a Spärkel carbonator. It's like a Soda Stream, but instead of a million canisters of CO2 that you have to keep replacing, it uses baking soda and citric acid. Anyway, we bought a variety of soda syrups for it, some of which I had shipped from Canada … Continue reading ALL the Soda Syrups!
When we first moved into our house, one of our housewarming gifts was a cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens. Lately my husband has been experimenting and learning new recipes, and he picked out a Teriyaki steak recipe from the cookbook, and it was absolutely amazing on the grill. The official recipe was 'Steak Teriyaki … Continue reading Teriyaki Steak
I love getting gifts for my husband, and he likes flowers and cards, so Valentine's Day is perfect for this. But I'm always afraid I'll forget, so I get a card for him, seal it, and tell him to open it on Valentine's. This year... I forgot that I'd gotten a card. Four times. My … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Whoops!
Roses were super on sale at ALDI this last Thursday, so I bought a bouquet for my husband. Yes, my husband, because he loves getting flowers, just like I do.
For his birthday, I bought my husband a music box, but not just any music box. This one lets you compose and use your own music! Did I mention my husband plays multiple instruments, by ear? I thought this would be right up his alley. Plus, all the parts are replaceable, just in case. The … Continue reading A Music Box for My Husband
Yes, it really has been that long since I graduated. One of my classmates put a lot of effort, money, and time into the reunion, so I'm grateful to her. I didn't initially realize how much work she did to make it be a nice evening, so thank you! I only misnamed four people. *facepalm* … Continue reading 20 Year High School Reunion
