dandelions

Dandelions

In a quest to use more of nature’s free gifts at Weber Wonderland I decided this would be the year I would weed, I mean forage for Dandelions. We have dandelions everywhere. As it should be, right? I never understood why people are so anti-dandelion in…

Lockbox = The Devil

See this innocent little real estate lockbox? Aw, just a little combination lock right? Maybe for some but for me THIS ONE IS THE DEVIL. My fat fidgety fingers f**ked something up when trying to change the code and now I have NO IDEA what the…

Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

I think I might start creating an attitude of gratitude at the end of each month. Attitude adjustment. Time for gratitude not grump. Because I just cleared and dumped all the grump out of my head and on to the page hoping to make room for…

Sunburn Sunday!

Because Saturday sucked, or didn’t go quite as I hoped. I had an early bedtime and woke up at a normal hour this morning. Baby was it cool outside! We had the windows open all night and HWMMS was ready to shut them and turn on…

meat

Meat on Meat

“Isn’t that sort of lazy? Meat on Meat?” -HWMMS Blasphemy. I pulled out a Chuck Roast from the bottom of the chest freezer and two pounds of bacon. Put the bacon on the bottom of the pan, put the roast on top and had it in…

Catnip

When you have as many cats as we do at Weber Wonderland, you grow your own catnip. In my perfect world, I have a HUGE patch of catnip. The patch I currently have growing is doing quite nicely, but it isn’t spreading as much as I…

asparagus

Asparagus Time!

Squee! Looky here! Mama’s first homegrown asparagus spears! And yes exclamation points abound! Because I’m excited and love asparagus! This is one of those vegetables I didn’t grow up with in the garden, I did however have it for my birthday meal every year. For some…

All Things Twitterments

The things I put on Twitter. Love a good herb garden! Oh my goodness I wish I could have acres of peonies… It’s weird that there’s a March for the Climate. Right? Spent time this misty grey afternoon weeding the onion patch & herb garden. My…

Pumpkin Bread and Ice Cream

Pumpkin Bread

Ok, I HAD to post this photo of this Pumpkin Bread because it looks like a plate of poo. A food blogger I am not, eh? BUT IT TASTED SOOO GOOD. I had every intention on making brownies and eating away my feelings, but then I…

27

27 is my favorite number, it has been for a long, long time so I don’t think there’s any spiritual significance when I see it, it’s just a random number I’ve been following. So last night, after I wrote the whiny post prior to this one…

Saturday

Saturday started off with coffee in bed. HWMMS loves me. It’s been a while since enjoying coffee in bed! Bah, if I knew it was going to be a chilly cloudy day I would have stayed there longer! HWMMS had to get up early(ish) to get…

Strange Things Are Afoot

I’m going to pretend that there’s just some odd disturbance in the force that is causing whatever the heck this funk I found myself in today. This week. I need to get to a center. I had a good work week this week, but it was…

18th Century Stays

18th Century Stays from the Sister Wife!

Oooooooh! My very own custom made for me, pretty, pretty set of 18th century stays made with love by my Sister Wife Jillian! (Stays = Corset) THANK YOU! Huzzah! I cannot WAIT to get myself in these! And a new chemise. The one chemise I have…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I was dreaming about this moment while falling asleep last night. Coffee on the porch with the puppies. Heaven. Outtake: Jordan too, enjoys her coffee on the front porch. Or her coffee anywhere she can get it. Silly girl doesn’t realize puppies aren’t supposed…

refresh

Refresh

Amazing what two little boxes of hair dye can do to refresh and renew your spirit. I really should just put a repeating calendar appointment for “wash that grey right out of my hair” every three months. Because, man, I can let myself go and it’s…

rain

A Little Fall of Rain

Do YOU like getting caught in the rain? The rain started to fall as I was driving to work after taking this photo of the sky over Newton Pond at Weber Wonderland. I found it funny that the “PiƱa Colada” song came on the radio when…

Frump Frump

Ugh, the day this photo was taken, I was actually in a decent mood. I was taking the puppies for a walk, bare feet in the muddy earth—-things are good. And then I saw the photo. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. I knew I needed to…

Jaclyn Levesque

Art by Jaclyn Levesque

My dearest friend Jaclyn Levesque made this for me! Or should I say she created it, I LOVED it and then she gifted it to me because she is a lovely human being. The whimsical new painting will go nicely in the bedroom. Thank you Jackie!…

online photos

Online Photos

Yikes. I thought I had a lot of blog posts—I just looked at the number of online photos in my Flickr account. Um 17, 136 photos. Since 2005. The sad thing is they aren’t organized very well. For instance I KNOW there is a photo in…

9 Concerts and a Lie

Ok, I’ll bite. 9 Concerts and a Lie eh? Sometimes these silly things come along on Facebook and they make me want to play. So I did. ? I had to put them in alphabetical order, because I’m odd like that. This little exercise made me…

New (Super) Moon Tonight!

My friend Sara posted this today. “New moon! New moon! Taurus moon! Where are you? Appreciate where you are/ what is working… notice what you would like to shift/ where you feel stuck. WRITE DOWN WHERE YOU’D RATHER BE/ FEEL ON THOSE SUBJECTS. Ask your ancestors…

Seeds

My friend Joey told me that the New Moon tonight meant I should do this: It’s time to plant your seeds….What do you want to see grow in the next two weeks? Hmmm. As soon as I read this I felt a literal pull to plant…

Blog Posts

Blog Posts 3,832 (Wait, 3,833!)

Blog posts? Dang. A new blog friend I’ve stumbled upon recently through Twitter: Sheepie Niagara—is celebrating her 100th post today! This made me look up how many posts I’ve published in the past 14 years (and trust me, I’ve deleted A LOT too.) Whoa. 3,832 and…

Fighting Against Our Gifts

Oh Universe, thank you for sending me this Daily Om today. Fighting Against Our Gifts Continually fighting against your gifts may bring about a louder knock at your door that you won’t welcome. Crap. I’m listening. But am I really listening?

Fitbit Arugh!

I’ve actually BEEN walking. And I’ve actually been wearing the FitBit bracelet—HOWEVER apparently I keep forgetting to put the device back in the ugly bracelet when I’m walking. That said, if you take a walk and your FitBit doesn’t record it—did you really walk at all?…
