I despise my carpeting… just sayin’

Lately I have been noticing a funky, slightly doggy, smell in our home. With summer days of children being home 24/7, chickens running around the yard, and the dog coming in and out, it’s no wonder things aren’t as fresh as they should be. When I started to notice this aroma though, I worried about […]

Lunch

I’m lazy today.  

How to stay cool when it’s hot hot hot

I don’t like heat. I like Autumn, with it’s cool breezes and crisp days. I have not complained this year about the heat until today. I AM HOT. It was 108 degrees in the shade outside of our house today, that’s what the thermometer said anyway, it felt hotter. The weather sites say the high […]

Things of my backyard haven

In our backyard we have many things. Speckled fluffy silly things clucking cooing, a bit too curious plump and useless wings Things that offer beauty joy and softness petals bursting with good cheer sweetness tempts the buzzing drifting to my ear Things that brood with patience and even warn to stay away Things with whiskers […]

What day is it??

Rain Rain Rain …and yep you guessed it, more rain! Ugh, this dreary wet mushy muddy swampy weather seems to have everyone on auto pilot lately! Even Mr.T. came home from school yesterday and asked me what was wrong with everyone! Why is everyone so quiet lately he asked? I looked up at him from […]

TGIF

Jazzercise class was awesome this morning. So awesome in fact that I whacked my instructor’s monitor in the face… Yes, you heard me, my arm flung out behind me and whacked her right in the head. Way to go me! Luckily she only comes once a year so I won’t have to be embarrassed again […]

Finally I  said “who cares if I look like a dork” and found the courage to participate in one of MamaDweeb.com’s fun vlog hops! This is called “How Do You say that in {insert your state here}?” It’s pretty interesting to see what differences there are in certain areas of the country. I have a […]

Two cakes for April Fool’s Day Dinner

Guess what? Mama just got the kids good :). It was one of the funnest April Fools Day dinners we’ve had in a long time. I took everything over to my Mom & Lee’s house to prepare. No peeking that way! The kids came over with Super G. after school for supper. We had cake […]

A can puncher is no substitute for a can opener

Honey, I need a new can opener…. Just sayin’. Because apparently, beating the tar out of the $10 hand held can opener with a hammer doesn’t fix it…

Thoughts on how to promote my blog

This year I have started to think about my blog more seriously. I’ve been trying to make my posts more search and SEO friendly, as well as trying to remember to post at least a few times a week. I’ve  spent the past few months thinking about and creating a new look. Nothing drastic but […]
