Those of us with pets know their time with us is fleeting, and we're often left with ashes, a collar, and maybe a nose print to physically remember them. My husband and I decided we wanted to do a pay print for Tundra. So I ordered the Crayola kit: The back had instructions, and it … Continue reading Making Our Puppy Paw Print Memento!
I saw this cute toy at Walmart, and I just couldn't resist. He walks and does little barks and whines and was all of $5, so of COURSE I got him for my husband! Tundra isn't entirely sure what to make of him and sniffed his tush but seemed confused. So cute! That's my ridiculous … Continue reading I Couldn’t Resist
I'm ramping up to publishing, and I plan to use the program Vellum for formatting my novel. It's one of the best in the field, and it allows you to preview your novel on different kinds of e-readers and devices. It provide a professional level product, which is the goal.

This last weekend, we (my husband and brother and I) took a day and pushed my garden a little closer to the state I want it to be in. I didn't clear all of the beds yet, but WOW. Adding edging and mulch makes a HUGE difference. Tundra was very interested in the proceedings. I … Continue reading We’ve Worked in the Garden

We always enjoy seeing her, and she likes us because we always have all the paperwork we need AND we pay quarterly so it's not a big bill. Our … Continue reading Tax Time!
My husband and I tend to have quiet Valentine's Day celebrations. Going out is a pain, not to mention frowned upon currently, and I can spend my money on wiser things than an expensive dinner and movie. Instead, this year we stayed home and made Lo Mein, and we watched this movie: You can find … Continue reading Wolf Children: Our Valentine’s Day Movie
Why don't I remember to bring my camera with me when I go places?!? Whyyyyyy?!? We had a heavy snowfall here over two days, and this is the only photo I managed to take of it: This is the first evening. My husband beat me to the snow shoveling, which I wasn't surprised about because … Continue reading Snow~!
Maybe I just need less STUFF. Except my husband has cool stuff. Are these not the cutest? The green one has a trailer that moves around that you can practice backing up. And of course, my sword from theatrical fencing and some other goodies: Anyway, I set up the shelves: No surprise, they were damaged … Continue reading As If I Needed Moar Shelves
