Facebook breakin’ and lovin’ it!!

READ MORE

  So, I have not been on Facebook in a week.  And I don’t miss it. Not. One. Little. Bit.  Except that also means I’m not posting on my page for my blog either.   Seriously though, my positive thoughts, energy, vibes, whatever you feel like calling it has skyrocketed over the last week!  Hum, […]

Kitchen Makeover

READ MORE

For years I have wanted to do something new and different with my kitchen.  Replacing cabinets, changing the layout, all that fun jazz was not in the budget.  And with a 140+ year old house that has an interesting shaped kitchen and windows that just don’t quit… I had to get creative. Meet my inspiration: […]

Feeling guilty…

READ MORE

yes, yes I am. Not because I lovingly refer to him as the Village Idiot, but because he has a real reason for, well, seeming like an idiot sometimes. I’m talking about the black pile of fur in my son’s lap…not my son. 🙂 lol We’ve had Ivan for almost a year now, and when […]

18 years and counting…

READ MORE

Doesn’t seem like it, but today my wonderful Oak Tree and I celebrate 18 years of marriage. It has been an amazing adventure. A roller coaster ride. Joy, tears, laughter, heartache. But… I am so thankful that I have gone on this journey with Mark. I am looking forward to whatever else the Lord has […]

I am so excited to share this with all of you!  It is the completion of my Chicken Management Binder!  I know, lame right?  Wait, ducks are lame…or are they?  They are kinda cute…and tasty.  But hold on one cluck, we are talkin’ chickens here…right now. 🙂 Ever since we got our cutie patuties last […]

I've been MIA…

READ MORE

Sorry about that.  We got some pretty harsh news three weeks ago and I’ve sort of withdrawn. From everyone…and everything. I have chosen to draw closer to my Lord, my Jesus. I needed to. My Dad was diagnosed December 2nd with Stage 4 Colon Cancer (incurable, and inoperable). This is a tough pill to swallow. […]

Kitchen curtain.

READ MORE

The door in my kitchen is, well, annoying.  Paint doesn’t like to stick to it and it has this window that let’s everyone stare inside. I don’t like it. It bugs me. It’s also a Southern facing window, which would be awesome… if I didn’t already have three huge windows in my kitchen already. So […]

Yes, I am a whimp…

READ MORE

And I’ll wear that title proudly for the moment! Why am I a whimp? Well, let me add that my younger two children, Cactus Conor and Opulent Orion, are sharing this title with me. You see, I made Beef & Bean Burritos tonight for dinner. I made homemade refried beans, taco style meat, stuffed neatly […]

I've been MIA…

READ MORE

…and busy.  I’m working on implementing new routines in managing our home and that’s, well…interesting.  It will be good, but right now, it’s just interesting. Everyone is completely off of sleep routines (and school schedules) due to a higher than normal volume of extra activities.  I’m pretty thankful that those have settled down and we […]

The "Good Dog" and his new bed…

READ MORE

We have an old dog in addition to the “other dog”.  His name is Max…and he has also been recently crowned “the Good Dog”.  Max is gentile, docile, somewhat co-dependent and is also my Prozac puppy…yes, he has a tad bit of anxiety, but he’s not destructive, just clingy. Isn’t he cute?  And yes, I […]
