Spring Snow and the Little Stinker

The warm weather and open windows was a fluke. The past few days have leapt down into the 30s and 40s. Last night we went to Target to pick up some milk for Minion, and lo and behold, it was snowing.   Dogwoods in the snow.  That wind was fierce, too. Minion sure does know […]

Spring Sprung

Whether we realized it or not, Spring has sprung. It brings a lift in the spirits, a desire to attack and air the house, and projects. The house smells of delicious lemon and lavender cleaning products.  I depend daily on: Method Kitchen Hand Wash (lemongrass),   Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Dish Soap (my mother so loved […]

Charge of the Light Brigade.

Oy. It’s been a long time since I last posted! Let’s see.  Knobby went away to work in The Cornfields for two weeks. The day after he left (Monday) we had an ice storm, followed by snow. The ice was a beast and stuck around in our 10 and 20 degree temps until we got […]

No Bugs for a Lady

Ladybugs. Tiny little creatures. One of the least threatening creatures that grace this earth, for sure. But I am really hating on the ladybugs right now. For several months, ladybugs have tried to take over our home. -They fly at you in the shower.  Three centimeters of non-biting, non-stinging creature isn’t threatening . . . […]

Feel the Frenzy

Alright . . .TGIF, it’s time for a weekly recap. 1.  Woke up to snow on Monday morning. It was quite a surprise, since the forecast the night before had mentioned nothing whatsoever about snow, and had indicated it would be much, much warmer.  I had to go out for my voice coach that day, […]

Of Choirs and Carpets

I am having a devil of a time deciding on carpet. I could bore you to tears . . . so, simply.  I have always lived on a beige carpet.  I have never really had much say in that matter. For Christmas, my big surprise was Knobby telling me we were going to carpet the […]

The Song Remains

This kid. You put out all these mats, all these blankets, all these cushy minky things for your child to play comfortably on . . . . . . and where does he insist on spending every waking moment? The hard, cold, fake wood floor. (And reworking his daddy’s soldering projects while he’s at it.) […]

Minion of Sandwich

We have to get this Disney review done. If for no other reason, that the pictures, which upload to the magical cloud, are so far down the “loading more” at this point that they’re just about to disappear into magical cloud oblivion. I was super-productive today, though, which also means “avoided Disney entry like the […]

Useless Door

So, we have this useless door in our house. From what I can tell, it was always a useless door. It opens to a dead end of the patio, and to get to it, you pass the kitchen door . . . so everyone uses the kitchen door. I never saw Mimi or Paw use […]

AntHill

This week, two things were on my calendar. One didn’t even require me leaving the house, but that was enough. Yesterday (Thursday) was a doctor’s appointment, which was just as much a waste of time as you’d imagine.  I started typing to you about all the ways and whys she is a useless runaround, but […]
