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…

Twitterments

Twitterments

Twitterments. Me in 140 charcters or less. Like what you see, come follow me! 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…

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…

Twenty-Seven

Twenty-Seven 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

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…

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…

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 “Piña Colada” song came on the radio when…

frump

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…

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…

Seeds

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…

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…

One Step Closer

One Step Closer

HWMMS will never admit this, which is why I need to record this thought on the blog for my own sanity and future reference. TONIGHT while we were walking the doggies around the backyard behind the garage we were looking at all the work and mess…

Muddy Feet

Ah,  Muddy feet. I love dirt. I love mud. I love being barefoot. My feet are probably perma-stained from childhood. This drives HWMMS insane and batty. Messy Jenny. The last week or so it’s been nice and wet and spring like outside and I’ve been taking…

Dating Apps in 2017?

Dating Apps in 2017? Haha. I typed in the word “dating” in my Flickr search bar and what came up? A photo of “First Date Skirt.” And then of course I had to look this up on All Things Jennifer and this post —–made me laugh.…

Weird

I feel really weird right now. Last night I was bubbly and filled with possibility, a million ideas for my friend’s theater company. I had a great day of work. Did a wee bit of writing. Went to bed late with a head full of thoughts.…

Ding!

Ding! Thank You Universe! I was a bad wife and didn’t do something I was supposed to do on time. My husband was loving and told me to just “get it done” by the end of the week. (Or Monday.) Well, here it is. It’s Monday.…

Ask: Guidance & Clarity

Ask: Guidance & Clarity. Arugh. The wonderful and crazy thing about overthinking and looking out for coincidences and synchronicities and trying to analyze and figure out what the right thing to do is when you are foggy and grey. FOR EXAMPLE. I checked my email this…
