We have a flowering tree in the front lawn that is GORGEOUS right now! And my lilac has bloomed. I think the tree out front is a crab apple, but I'm not 100% sure: There were lovely drifts of pink petals on the ground, but I didn't think to take a photo of them before … Continue reading Our Trees are Blooming!
Today my husband was SUPER NICE, and we put in a new grow bed, and I planted a ton of stuff. It's a little earlier, so I just grabbed the truly out of control plants to put them in the garden. They're a little wilty, but that's because I hadn't watered them yet today and … Continue reading New Grow Bed and Planting!
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!
This is, no kidding, so exciting to me! I saw this trellis design here at Seed Savers with a few others, and I immediately thought it would be practical for me. It would fold up, and I was sure the previous owner had left enough wood scrap and chicken wire for us to make it. … Continue reading My Husband Made Me a Trellis!
We ordered this grill from Home Depot since Andrew was listing so badly and shaking so it was dangerous to cook on him. Sorry, Andrew. This is our new grill, who we're calling Swinger after the brand. She was a HUGE hassle to assemble, primarily because the top and bottom came nested in each other. … Continue reading Meet Swinger, Our New Grill
This cold spell has been hard on the bird population, so we've started feeding again. My husband took some photos for me, and the gold finches were going to town the other morning! It was sleeting, but they didn't care; they were all about the sunflower seeds! And another photo: They're so cute! I just … Continue reading So Many Birdies!
For a few months now, we've been noticing that our hot water heater isn't doing that great of a job. It used to be that the shower turned all the way on was excruciating. Now, my husband who likes his shower lukewarm turns it up all the way and it's just right. Which means that … Continue reading Oof! That Was Brisk!
Our toilet has been acting up for years... it doesn't want to flush, it takes a ton of water, and it's aggravating all around. Clogs on literally NOTHING, takes three or four tries to flush, overflows, runs continuously until you jiggle the handle... the works. No amount of additives or plunging has helped. My husband … Continue reading Behold! A Toilet at Last!
Have you ever had one of those TV shows or movies where EVERY SINGLE TIME you see it on TV, or when you walk in and a friend is watching it, you see THE SAME SCENE. I have that with The NeverEnding Story movie. (Affiliate link. Spoiler: There are several affiliate links in this post … Continue reading Who Knew? It Wasn’t About a Horse Dying
Okay, I can't take credit for this at all, but my husband caught a photo of the Red Headed Woodpecker! He had to zoom in like crazy, hence the graininess - I don't have a particularly nice camera. But! There it is! PROOF! And I just had to share. *smile*
