After dealing with work stress (ongoing!) and some health things that needed taken care of , I've been away for too long. Add nearly two feet of snow, constant cold and, well, me, the girl who gets cold at 70 degrees-- Let's just say I've been hibernating. A few things have been going on, as… Continue reading Eat My Eggs, I’ll Eat You
No pics this time; I don't think you will want to see them. As many of you may be experiencing, we're getting a lot of blasts of arctic cold, and a lot of unseasonably cold weather. It was 3 degrees when I woke up this morning, which is usually unheard of in this area--at least… Continue reading Chilling Cold

With the few minutes left on this day, I want to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas. I hope it was beautiful and filled with love, regardless of if you celebrated.
I know, mum is the word lately from our side of the world. I've been trying to get a handle again on my health. Not that there's anything too seriously wrong with it, just a lot of mismanagement in the last year. And I'm paying for it dearly. So, while I go back to a… Continue reading Christmas is Sneaking Up!
Well, I did it. I finished my first crochet pieces! You see, this is a big deal. I've been trying to finish my first crochet piece for almost 20 years. Yes, you read that right--20 years. Twenty years ago my grandmother (the one who reminds me of frogs and soil and azaleas and drawing trees… Continue reading Weekend Wrap-Up: Crochet Binge
Last Thursday some pretty strong winds came through. At night, we could hear the flag hitting against the house and trees in the area snapping. But we had long ago taken out the pines that could have taken out our house. We didn't think much had been affected. Then, Friday morning. I went outside to… Continue reading An Unexpected Friday
