Back to my dungeon! I mean basement…

My new stove is coming on Saturday!  I’m very excited, particularly since we got a good deal (I think…)  So my kitchen is almost complete, with just the odd touch here and there to make things more simplified and organized.  Which means…

Back to the basement.

Yes, that was the sound of me screaming in […]

My warm and lovely tiny kitchen

My daily thinking goes something like this:

“I should blog.”  *Browses the web.  Plays with the kids.  Cleans.  Big projects.  Cooks.  Crochets.  Final Fantasy.*  “Oh man, I didn’t blog.  I really suck at this blogging thing.”

And thus, I don’t blog.

Thing is, I like to blog. It’s fun to share ideas and thoughts, and […]

When you spin faster than the world…

You know, it’s actually really hard to keep up with a blog, particularly with three kids and no plan.  Life seems to go from really boring to “omg, it’s really hectic I don’t have time to breathe so don’t mention blog busy.”  The toddler in particularly keeps me super busy.  Lately she takes to doing […]

Spring Summer

I love the smell of rain.  We skipped ahead a little to summer, and May brought little rain thus far.  We are getting some much needed rain today, and that on top of the cooler temps feels really good.

Things sort of faded away with some of the chaos that came in my life.  On […]

Spring time

It’s so nice to have the weather be warm and sunny again.  While cleaning out my garden beds isn’t exactly fun, there is a zen like quality to it.  It’s hard to focus on anything other than the task at hand, which is really nice, particularly when there’s a lot on your mind.

Half […]

It begins again…

The first of our crocuses.

Mother nature is angry.  Last week we went from the 20’s to the 60’s and then back down again.  We had two “warm” days, and I managed to get at least one day of garden clean up in.  It’s ugly.  Really ugly.  I had to buy mud boots ugly. […]


This is so true.  I’d say Mei does most of this still. Though I save time by not putting dry clothes in the dryer.  It’s a time saver.  Sometimes I just don’t take clothes out of the dryer at all.  Sometimes I don’t take them out of the washer…that’s not a time saver though. […]

Garden progress


I’ve spent the past two days working outside, since the weather has been a little cooler, making it more comfortable. I’m really tired and really sore now, but it’s so worth it.  My veggie bed is looking decent- slow, because of delayed planting, but good.  I’ve spotted some tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash, […]

Wires! I don’t need no stinkin’ wires

My internet has temporarily gone on vacation, much to my dismay. I had planned to chill out for the day, after a few days of hardcore gardening and cleaning. No internet left me with little to do, so I cleaned more and rearranged my living room to make it more suitable for warmer weather. I […]

Weekend without nerdiness

Well, at least with no nerdy goodness as the primary feature.  Weekends tend to be the days we catch up on cleaning, or taking short day trips.  Or shopping.  I supposed I can only really complain about one of those things, though I think this weekend is a cleaning weekend.  So not fun.

Ommegang’s […]
