To Wish You a Delightful Weekend

I wanted to make something fabulous and speshul to help roll you into the weekend. So… I borrowed a little bit from Fern and her BFFL. If you, like me, grew up with BFF, then you most likely won’t know…

Pillow Lips and Armageddon

Lying in bed listening to yet another thunderstorm roll through- actually the thunder is drowned out by my dog barking at the thunder. I was thinking about a post I want to write about skin care and cosmetic procedures. That…

The Abundant Garden

I never knew when we decided to try our hands at vegetable gardening, that we would have such success. It’s just so…..easy. Effortless!   Christian slapped together a raised bed, we threw some dirt in, whipped seeds all over the…

Voyeurism

The sharing of personal information doesn’t come so naturally to me, but I’m going to try to round out my blog with some serious writing. My trip to Rochester really hit a nerve, so I’m working on exploring my- actually…

Today I have a group of ballet flats for you to look at. Are these made for special curled up feet? I think so.       ow, my bunions.  

Judging the PJ Pants

Today I saw a mom picking up her kids from school, and she was wearing pajama bottoms. This is a crime that should be punishable by public flogging, or at least a humiliating afternoon in a stockade. Without a cell…

Green Thumb? Black Thumb?

I am by no means a gardener, but I like to plant things occasionally. If I’m motivated, I will even continue to water these items when necessary. Perennials are my plant genre of choice, and I do not understand the…

You’re Welcome

Yesterday I took a little trip to the park with my Venti iced green tea with 4 pumps of sweetener and easy water. Oh, and I had to bring Bex, too, because I would have felt weird leaving him alone…

A Warning To All

My God. Let this post serve as a friendly public service announcement from me to you. I thought I was doing my family a favor by buying a healthier alternative to Pop Tarts, but what I really was doing was…
