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
Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it. I may be 36, but you know what I can't resist doing every Easter? Colored eggs! I don't buy kits; I use food coloring for the dye. You can see in the photo below I couldn't find my egg... wire... thingie. So I used one of … Continue reading Happy Easter! You Know I Did Eggs
Tundra, you are VERY LUCKY that you're cute and we like you. We called the repair shop, but they're still looking for a seat. UGH.
It's THAT time of year, and we had our taxes prepared at our usual preparer's office, with the same person we've been seeing for... 10?... years.

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
I ordered specialty soap for my husband for Valentine's Day. I ordered it from Cat and Raven Designs. I've watched a few of their videos on YouTube, and they're the first soap makers I've seen that let you order a soap to your specifications. You can find them here. Ya'll, I couldn't resist. I asked … Continue reading I Couldn’t Wait for Valentine’s Day
My husband has a driving wheel with pedals and shifter to play his racing games, but there's always issues on where to mount it, making space, moving it around. He has wanted a collapsible driving chair for years. This year he shared one with me, and it wasn't that expensive. Take a look: So his … Continue reading A Driving Chair for Sim Racing
If you know anything about me, you know that I am a reader, going through between 3 and 5 books a week. Yeah, I know. It's not nearly as fast as some folks out there, but it isn't a contest, it's the journey, ya'll. And I'm totally for Indie authors and ebooks. Ebooks are amazing. … Continue reading OK, I Splurged… Unboxing
