Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]
Wishing all the best to the Mom’s out there. And, especially to my own amazing Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
Of course, I don’t really know Mika’s real birthday, but April 27th is her adoption day so it’s the day I celebrate her birthday. This year makes her approximately 12. (Again, because she was an adult cat when we adopted her, we have to guesstimate based on what her info said from the SPCA.) Happy […]
Couldn’t resist making an entry for today since it’s not often you get a “February 29th” date stamp on your blog. 😉 I really don’t have anything terribly interesting to actually post about; it’s just another Wednesday other than the once-every-four-years date. But since it is a once-every-four-years date, I’m making a post anyway. Hope […]
Valentine’s Day evening was when I first realized I was sick. And I spent the next few days just in the typical, miserable fog of a cold. By Friday, I finally felt like the worst of it was over. With Love’s birthday coming up the following day, I ran an errand to the store to […]
A day for love; both to give and receive. Hope you can spread some love today too!
All last week we were covertly working with Love’s Dad to get supplies and make arrangements for a surprise birthday party for Love’s Mom. Ever since last June when Love’s Dad had all his medical issues (his gallbladder ruptured, he went septic, was in a coma and had a quadruple bypass), he doesn’t drive anymore. […]
In the excitement of getting my ring, I haven’t even talked about anything else from Christmas yet. We got up at 6am. Took our turkey out of the brine we had it in overnight. (Using, of course, Alton Brown’s recipe.) Got it prepped and in the oven. Then, we did out Christmas gift exchange since […]
In case you missed the twitter or Facebook update this was my Xmas gift from Love. And yes it is what it looks like: engagement ring! 13 years in the making. LOL White sapphire so tons of bling for the buck! Love love love it! We took it in today for sizing and I get […]
Shopping is done. Presents are wrapped. All the bills are paid and there’s even a little left in the bank. Life’s not too bad, especially given how insurmountable it all looked a few short months ago. We’ll start the turkey brine as soon as I post this. Tomorrow morning, we cook the 20lb bird, have […]
The warm weather is depressing me. It’s just been too damned warm this December. The historic average should be about 71F (22C) this time of year but it’s running about 80F (27C) instead. How can you feel “Christmasy” when it’s 80 damned degrees outside and you’re in shorts and a tee? Still got the A/C […]
I get up this morning and walk to the kitchen to get a drink of water. As I walk back, I glance at the tree. Then I do a double-take because something catches my eye. (click for larger) …is that? Yes, it’s a little Gracie cat curled up in a little kitty ball, snuggled in […]
