Henri Weber 2000-2014

Our hearts are broken. Henri the old Pup gave us a mighty scare last Spring right after we moved to our new forever home. We were blessed to spend time with him for several more months watching him frolic around the yard, along the country roads,…

Weber Christmas Tree 2011

It started as a pole. Then we realized we needed more lights. Our tree sat for a week with only lights. And presents. He Who Makes Me Smile told me that we wouldn’t be able to put presents under the tree because Henri will rip them…

Hello Birdie!

While I was weeding the herb garden this little guy was apparently taking a break from eating the few remaining cherries on the tree—and just sat there watching me. HWMMS came around the corner and said “Do you see this bird, it’s just staring…Mom? Is that…

Easter

HWMMS and I aren’t really Easter people.  I wonder how that came to be. I’m ALL THINGS HOLIDAY AND CELEBRATING AND AND… Our very first year together I took him to the Broadway Market for the first time and made Easter Brunch for him and Mama…

In an alternate world…

I often think Mama Weber would have loved living life in Springville with us at Weber Wonderland. She would be volunteering everywhere—and attending all the awesome senior center events, hanging out with me at the Chamber, attending the Village and Town meetings. Who am I kidding,…

Polyester?

Aw, yeah, Poly. Ester. Baby. Just when I think I’ve been through all of Mama Weber’s things I find the most awesome surprise of all. Two piles of polyester fabric, red and navy blue. Alright, alright older ladies wear polyester, especially years ago…but no. Nope, this…

Foyer

I truly believe this old chair of Mama Weber’s was MEANT to live in our Foyer. I love it. I love it more in this room. I love it in this room so much in fact it became the anchor piece from which I have decorated…

ALL THINGS CLOSED!

After not one, not two but THREE failed “contracts” the ink on the closing papers for the condo is now dry as of yesterday afternoon. We actually didn’t trust ourselves yesterday and called again today to confirm. So many words I could say. Choosing the high…

Let there be (a new dining room) light!

You do see this is HWMMS attempting to remove the ugly ceiling fan by stepping on a step stool on top of Mama Weber’s antique dining room table right? You do know that is going to end badly in some way shape or form, right? Yep.…

One Year

With love, to Mama Weber. “When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and…

Honeymoon in the Berkshires

I’m so behind on all things blogging about Weber Wedding Weekend. Ready? Remember the post not long ago when I talked about our honeymoon and we decided we wanted to travel lots of places in an RV? Yeah…turns out not so much. I HATE the heat,…

(Almost) FREEDOM!

The clan of Weber Cats are getting antsy…they really want to go outside. So today, when Mama propped the doors open to get in some fresh air…4/5 of the gatos took advantage within about 27 seconds. I don’t blame them one bit.

One Week…

Thank you all for the kind words, messages and cards…it means a lot to us. We miss our old pup like an appendage. Henri pretty much followed me around the house everywhere I went. At all times. By my side. Tis especially sad at night when…

WNY Dairy/Ag Festival

Since we are now officially *townies* of Springville (more so Concord…) we HAD to check out the Springville Annual WNY Dairy/Ag Festival in between torrential downpours this weekend! I already missed the photo op of “Drive Your Tractor to School Day” on Friday because I slept in,…

This Past Sunday Was A Very Bad Day

1. One year anniversary of the death of my husband’s mama. 2. Husband passed out from coughing while driving home from a nice dinner. ‪ 3. Car accident. Hit a tree. I grabbed the wheel once seeing tree in my direct path and managed to divert…

Planting, planting, planting.

I couldn’t sleep last night. All I could think about was planting. Planting, planting, planting. All this space and so many things I can’t wait to plant! The thing is…my entire planting/garden self is heavily completely influenced on how I grew up as a kid at…

My Life, in a Nutshell

Wow. Hi Blog. I miss you. Wonder if anyone else notices I’ve been quiet? Eh, whatever. Here’s the quick scoop. A few times a year it gets really, really, really, really busy at work. I’m smack in the middle of one of those times. On top…

On the 5th day of vacation…

My true love of self gave to me…sleeping until 2pm because I was up ALL NIGHT COUGHING. Bah. He Who Makes Me Smile and I have been fighting this cold/cough thing for way too long now. I’m ready for it to end. I suppose celebrating with…

Family Tradition

We just came back from a Christmas party with He Who Makes Me Smile’s cousins from his dad’s side of the family. First of all I have to say the farmhouse was the most amazing home I’ve ever seen. Absolutely  gorgeous, spacious, beautifully decorated and inviting.…

Wednesday Weddingments!

Kind of like Randomments but you know All Things Wedding instead, I’ll save these little snippets for Wednesday. Only because of the alliteration. 1. Maggie asked to see my hand while standing in line in the bathroom during a theater intermission last week. At which point…
