What’s going on?

Hi!  Been a while, huh?  So, yea, been busy.  I’ve actually started and written about 6 different posts in the last couple of months, and then just never posted them.  So it’s not that I haven’t been thinking about you, dear blog! Some new things… New job – I started a new job in July.  [...]

I love my dog as much as I love you…

Click here to view these pictures larger My dogs got new treats today! I’ve been reading (er, mostly looking at) Daily Coyote for a while now.  I absolutely love it.  And no matter what your feelings are about coyotes, the author’s photographs are just stunning and beautiful and cute and gorgeous.  Love!  Anyway… Shreve Stockton, [...]

You know knittin’s friendly and knittin’s fun…

I’ve mentioned my new Knifty Knitter toys.  Well, like any time I take up a new crafty pursuit, I have to go all out.  It wasn’t enough to buy the Knifty Knitter set of 4 round looms.  I also bought a Knifty Knitter rectangular loom.  Then, after doing some things with big fat knits, I [...]

Would you like to swing on a star?

Look at the new awesomeness I have in my backyard!! Tina brought the swing from her Mom’s house, and built the frame for it and painted it a couple of weekends ago.  It’s well shaded by the jungle of trees back there, and very nice to sit on!  Tomorrow I might try out laying down [...]

I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden…

But I planted a vegetable (and berry) garden today!  With help, of course.  I don’t know what put this bright idea into my head, given my history of growing dirt (especially on my multiple attempts at growing herbs), along with my great love for yardwork.  I went to a plant sale yesterday with a local grower, and [...]

I can see clearly now…

OK, I stole that idea from a Claritin commercial.  I think it was Claritin, anyway. Have you guys tried this Chloraseptic Allergen Block stuff?  It is MAGIC!  They claim science, but I’m voting for magic.  They say it’s “a positively charged gel which can block negatively charged airborne allergens on contact.”  That sounds nutty.  But it works!!  [...]

I want a new drug…

Whoa!  2 days in a row of posts, and 2 days in a row of song lyrics as a title.  I’m a rock star.  Maybe I should keep that up.  It could be like my theme or something.  Until I run out of lyrics.  Or start posting only once every 2 months again. Today I [...]

Sharing

Tina bought Lady a new bed the other day – one of these cute little $10.00 deals from Wal-Greens.  The theory was that the hardwood floors are tough on such a big dog’s joints, and having her own bed would keep her from sleeping on the sofa (after everyone else is in bed – oh [...]

New “pet”

I was sitting in my cubicle today when my friend Linda came in to tell me about her walk back from another building.  Someone stopped her, FLIPPED OUT over something she’d seen on the other side of the pond – too scared, in fact, to even cross the bridge.  The frightening thing she saw?

New Toy

I just bought myself a new toy – a state tax refund/early birthday present toy.  I’ve been obsessing about getting a serger/overlock sewing machine for myself, and finally decided to just go for it.  Here’s what I got!  I was actually all set to by a Kenmore from Sears – they had one on display, [...]
