Just Desserts

For months, I’ve been cleaning up numerous “accidents” from our floors. Months. It was enough to drive me batty.  But add in factors like constant morning sickness, or a burgeoning figure, or newfound Minion responsibility, and guess what . . . you REALLY grow to dislike having to bend down and scrub the floor multiple […]

Merry Christmas 2013

I was feeling pretty uncharacteristically positive about the size of my face . . . until I’ve browsed the pictures that Knobby took on Christmas Day just now.  Whew, SCARY. But we can still picture-recap the holiday. Needed a dresser for the Minion’s room, and Mom found this buffet in an antique store.  I’ve been […]

Tis the Season

I don’t know about you, but my inbox has been inundated with greed since a month BEFORE “Black Friday”.  Retailer after retailer, all vying and climbing desperately over each other to compete for my attention and my gift-spending allowance. At times, we crested over 980 new emails in Ye Olde Pixy Inbox . . . […]

Light Has Come

This morning I woke up to a delicious treat. A paper bag placed by my head, containing a sausage biscuit and hash browns. (Ok, fine.  Two sausage biscuits.) The McDonald’s sausage biscuit may seem like nothing to you, but to someone like me who is rarely operable during their breakfast hours . . . it […]

Business As Usual

~YankeeCandle is having their Buy Two, Get Two Free promotion on large candles.  Time for you to stock up on your Christmas candles (or, whatever else you may enjoy).  Me, I’m Balsam & Cedar ALL THE WAY.   One’s house should smell like a Christmas tree for at least four months out of the year. […]

Weekend Progress

A weekend of accomplishment! Friday night, Knobby installed this pendant light — Murray Feiss, Parker Place — over my kitchen sink.   I’ve had wires hanging down over the sink ever since we took the fluorescent big ugly strip light down, back whenever I painted my kitchen.  (February?) So, it’s great to have that checked […]

My Fair Fruit Lady

I’ve been putting off grooming Ava for the longest time, but today I bit the bullet. Ava’s so difficult.  The smaller the dog, the more difficult it is to groom them.  You’d think big dogs would be a chore, but no . . . big dogs have massive body parts.  Shaving a log would be […]

Bee Apocalypse

Ava greets you this morning.   (Well, now it’s afternoon.  We had a v.late start to our day today.) She asks that you please disregard her furry paws. (They are apparently v.ticklish, so she does not often willingly cede them for grooming.) Drama on the home front this morning . . . Coco wanted to […]

Garm and PopPop Visit

Backtracking . . . catching up. A few days before Christmas, Garm and PopPop came to visit us! Garm had a list of three things she wanted to accomplish. She wanted to: 1.  See Biltmore in all its Christmas Candlelight splendor. 2.  See our rafter of wild turkeys. 3.  Meet our neighbor and see the […]

Zero to Illegal Like a Rocket

I apparently just tried to take off our dryer’s door . . . with my chin. If I wake up tomorrow wondering what’s happened to my face or my teeth, or possibly my ears . . . well, we’ll have to remember this. (Walking to get the mail is more a wilderness trek than simple […]
