Oh yes, they call him the streak…

OK, so I’m really reaching there on the song lyrics… only to say that my streak of posting every day has now ended!  But, it’s only been one day this time, instead of 2 months.  Not so bad, right? Yesterday was BUSY!  I did not fall for the “help me back up the truck” trick [...]

All the leaves are brown…

Today made me nostalgic for living in Laramie.  Back in the day where there weren’t so many treees where I lived, and I didn’t have to deal with them, cause I was always in rental property!  Tina’d already been working a lot on cleaning up the yard – trimming trees and shrubs, raking leaves, fun [...]

Tea for two, and two for tea…

Whew!  I was just getting ready to hit the sack, when I remembered I hadn’t posted yet today!  And I wouldn’t want to break my streak just yet… it’s way too easy to skip one day, and have one day turn into 2 months.  Geez, I’m a slacker. Tonight I enjoyed a cup of what [...]

All that’s left is a band of gold…

Silver, actually, but I had to keep within my self-imposed theme, and couldn’t think of a silver ring song.   See how hard I’m working?  I should have painted my nails or something before I took pics.  I haven’t actually been wearing these all on one hand, but I couldn’t figure out a way to [...]

We Made a Quilt!!!

Today, Syd’s Sewing Circle (consisting entirely of Syd and Tina) completed their first quilt project without adult supervision (consisting of Syd’s talented mom)!    We made an “I Spy” quilt this week while I was off work (another week of cost-saving shutdowns for AE).  It’s about 5′ by 5′, and we made it with some [...]

Happy New Year!

So, once again, Mother Nature tried to scheme against me.  The day I had planned to drive to Rock Springs (by myself) for part of my big Christmas vacation, it snowed.  A lot.  And the wind blew.  And the roads were bad.  Bah.  But… two days later, it was only windy!  And by that point, [...]

I finished it!

Here is Miss Maddie as Snow White!  I finished making it last minute, of course.  And once again, we picked a pattern that was so much more complex than it looked like it would.  But she came out cute, don’t you think?  Tina took these pictures of her – Maddie thinks she is quite the [...]

Project iPod is done! (And ready to start over!)

Okay, I’m about to admit (yet again) to what a big dork I am. A while ago (a year and half ago, to be exact), I realized that I had about 9000 songs on my iPod, and I didn’t know/hadn’t ever listened to a huge portion of those songs.  I decided that I would make [...]

Shots! And not the fun kind…

I got my very first flu shot yesterday!  Or – maybe just the first one I’m aware of – I don’t know if I got them when I was little.  I’d never gotten one before – I haven’t gotten the flu in years (knock wood!), and I figured that if it wasn’t broken, I didn’t [...]

Not what I was planning to post!

I’d planned on posting pictures of some baby gifts (bibs and a hooded towel) that I made for a friend’s baby shower.  But… I brilliantly forgot to take pictures before I gifted them!  So, no pictures. I’m working right now (well, not right this second) on a Halloween costume for Miss Maddie.  She is going [...]
