Guess we’re in Texas now :-0 Our first Christmas in Texas was really quite nice. The girls were excited Christmas morning to discover gifts under our little tree. Of course it meant more stuff in our small space that have no home, but I’ve managed to find places to put some things and today I’m offContinue reading “Merry Christmas, Wicked Weather”
On March 1st, it snowed. On March 2nd, we are waiting at home for the next round of snow, which is forecast to also dump some ice on us. I would much rather be doing this . . . . . .

Recently, I’ve had a lot of complaint about our lack of rain. I found some wide cracks in our yard because it’s so dry and every day I’ve been watering the garden. I would much rather have Mother Nature take care of the watering for me, but today when I checked the weather they utteredContinue reading “Derecho”

Then overnight the rains and storms moved in and now we have the possibility of severe storms this afternoon and tonight. When the severe weather threats move in, I know spring has officially arrived. AlthoughContinue reading “It’s Official”
We are finally getting a real spring day here and it couldn’t come at a better time. There is a lot to be done outside and we are armed with supplies to get it done. Last year we completed a deck and patio project. That project now requires some landscaping be done and IContinue reading “Finally!!! A Spring Day”
After a couple of days of some wonderful tinctures made by my friend Katie at The Garden Fairy Apothecary, I am feeling considerably better. Last time I started using her tinctures at the first sign of getting sick and didn’t get sick at all. This time I waited too long, but with hours of taking my first doseContinue reading “Back in Business”
