It’s cold, see.

Sooooo….. I think I know why my house goes to junk when winter comes. It’s cold now – the high was in the low 50s today – and the house is cold. I came home, made dinner, begrudgingly folded some laundry, then settled in under a big ol’ blanket in my cold house. Ralph jumped up on my lap for heat, so I have no reason to move or be productive. 🙂

Let winter begin.

A while back, Beth said that she got some new sheet pans and they were so nice to use. Previously, she had restaurant sheet pans like mine, but after many years, they do take a beating. I was jealous, so I ordered some new ones. They’re beautiful, and it’s time to break them in. Clean […]

It’s not so bad, the things that bring me joy.

It's not so bad, the things that bring me joy.

So, I am afraid to say this out loud – lest it break the spell – but I have secretly been Kind Of Tidy for several weeks now. You wouldn’t know it from the cleaning storm that we did before company came, but that was different. When company comes, just Tidy won’t do – it […]

Sooooo….. we had a pretty intense storm on Sunday night. It was pretty windy all day and I was enjoying it quite a bit. I would have gone for a walk but it was too hot. Around bedtime, the wind really picked up. I heard things crashing about but couldn’t see anything. I peered out […]

Success!

Success!

I got a bunch of stuff done this weekend, and hopefully I will remember to post about them this week. Today: my magical dirt-making powers.
