    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! Tomorrow is Turkey Day and we’re planning on eating a lot. I plan to take Brienne out for at least 2 walks tomorrow: Once in the morning and again the in the afternoon.  I am also hoping to get some Meta in to work out in between walking sessions so I […]

    Impatient Crafting

    I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist. I like my creations to look good, straight, and even. It doesn’t always happen, unfortunately. It rarely happens. Each time I try to make something, 9 out of 10 times, I stop and frog because the pattern was either too confusing, boring, or the product was not what I had […]

    For the Love of Coleslaw

    I am not a cook.  I love to eat.  One of my favorite things to eat (though I really shouldn’t) is KFC fried chicken.  The one thing I love about KFC, though, is their coleslaw.  I’ve tried all kinds of other coleslaws, from the grocery store bagged coleslaw and mix in a jar to the […]

    The Month of Thanks

    Happy November, my friends! It is the month of thanks, filled with stuffing our faces with cranberry sauce, turkey, and a lot of pie. This year, we are actually making a turkey (courtesy of my sister-in-law) and having at least 3 different vegetables to help offset the indulgence that is pie.  We’re planning on our […]

  • Mommy Needs Some Money!!

    I love my dogs and my family.  We’re doing fairly well considering the current economy and the weird turns in the universe (aka the unexpected vet bills last month). Surprisingly, the oldest (the little one) hasn’t had many issues despite being 14 years old, eating his own poop, and having a heart murmur.  The younger […]

    Happy Halloween 2022!

    Happy 2022 Halloween! These last few weeks have sucked a lot!  On Oct 20, Brienne got very sick and she ended up vomiting 3x all over the house, which prompted me to take her down to the ER (again!) to see if they could help her. $4k later, she’s home with some medication and a […]

    Hello Again!

    This is the umpteenth time I’ve revisited the blog.  I admit, I am very poor at upkeep and I tend to post a lot of content for a few weeks, and then disappear for the rest of the year.  Sorry. So, yes, I am back and we’ll see how long I last this time around. […]

    Is It Spring Yet?

    I’ve been itching to plant outside.  Really itching. Unfortunately, in my area, the soil in my garden is nothing but clay.  And on top of that, the areas around the backyard lawn are nothing but river rocks.  The previous owners of the house thought it was a good idea.  They also thought that putting the […]

    A New Year … New Projects!

    At the end of 2021, I embarked on a new project just to see if I could do it.  I saw a free pattern for a pretty light shawl/stole on the Knitpicks website and since I had returned my birthday present to myself back at Costco, I had some money to burn.  I decided to […]

  • Don’t Give Up

    This is probably my 6th attempt to create something this past weekend. I had a saxon cable shrug on the needles, but after a hiatus, whilst I completed the Pulmonaria Shawl for a friend, I had lost my place and I had also lost interest.    So it was frogged into two large balls of […]
