Blueberries are not my favorite fruit, but the bushes are doing so well that I couldn't resist getting another two bushes! My mother had some before the flood at her house took them, and they were delicious. But I looked at my garden and went: You know what my garden needs? MOAR BLUEBERRIES. So I … Continue reading I Couldn’t Resist the Allure of MOAR BLUEBERRIES!
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!
Driscolls strawberries are showing up in stores, and I am STOKED. Strawberries are my favorite fruit (closely followed by watermelon), and I stuff myself full of them when they're in season. The best brand you can get here, by far, is Driscolls. I've bought 8 containers of them so far, and I've been having them … Continue reading Strawberries and Cream Season!
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!
My closet is getting a little crazy - I'm going to have to put some of it outside even though the weather isn't ideal. And the second half: The tea plant is down there on the left. But it's all so happy growing in there! My tomatoes are crawling around, which is obnoxious, but I've … Continue reading Updates on My Jungle Closet
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!
So, I had scheduled a post about my new Espresso Maker, BUT when I went in to write it I realized that this is my 300th post! I never thought, when I started blogging, that I would manage to regularly post because I'm so flaky, but I've maintained a 3-post-a-week schedule. Some of my posts … Continue reading Espresso Maker AND 300 Posts!
Our neighbor just had the tree on the lot between us cut down, and my property has SO MUCH more sun. He was a bit irate - he called the power company to have them turn off power to their property in case the tree fell funny, and the company told him they would just … Continue reading Cutting Down Trees!
I follow various snow dog rescues, wolf dog rescues, and such, and I'm always looking at different dogs. I may like them, but I don't usually do more than gush about one and show my husband. Then I don't think anything more of it. But... I saw a dog at a shelter a reasonable drive … Continue reading We WERE Going to Adopt a Dog
UGH. I was doing SO WELL on the meds I was on, fairly stable, rarely swinging full manic and a livable amount of depression. But I made the mistake of mentioning, at my most recent psych appointment, that I was lactating from the Invega. My doctor immediately wanted to know for how long. Four years? … Continue reading Everything Was Stable So Time For New Medications: Let’s Talk About Weight Gain
