First holiday season in our home

By in Family, Main

Click on my cookie-decorating self to see our Christmas 2010 photo album: This has been SUCH a great holiday season so far, for a lot of reasons. 1. This is our first year truly celebrating the season in this house. Last year we didn’t decorate or put up a tree or exchange gifts. It’s been [...]

Yard-gasm 2010

By in Main, Pictures

Are you ready to see the fruits of our hard labor throughout the month of May? Here’s a grand tour of our front and back yards just before our Memorial Day cookout. :) It rained overnight and blew some leaves and whatnot into the new mulch, but it still looked great and we’re really proud [...]

Air Plants

By in Main, Pictures

I’m really loving my air plants (tillandsia). Anyone else an air plant lover? If you’ve never heard of them, they’re incredibly easy to manage, cheap to buy (tons of them on Etsy), and I think they’re beautiful. No roots, no soil, just some sunlight and weekly water soaking. You can glue them to just about [...]

Busy Memorial Day Weekend

By in Main

Man, oh man, has it ever been a productive weekend! I’ve planted the second raised garden bed with marigolds, herbs and onions, the first raised bed is full of veggies (peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, two kinds of lettuce). We’ve spread seven cubic feet of mulch throughout all of the beds (which looks BEAUTIFUL), cleaned off the [...]

Dishwashers, Doorways, Fur-Spewage

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Old dishwasher that came with the house: New (to us) dishwasher that Jim’s parents no longer need because it was replaced after their house fire (it still works perfectly fine, just needed cleaned up): Jim and his dad were working hard on switching them out today, and then they fixed the downstairs shower so that [...]

Mid-April Blossoms

By in Main, Pictures

Flowering crab apple tree (at the time of this picture, the tree was beautifully tinged with pink and all the blossoms were a pinkish color and now everything is completely white aside from the “unhatched” buds still remaining): Holly bushes! We have two, and I think this little bitty green items indicate that we do [...]

Early April Buds

By in Main, Pictures

Check out what’s been growing around these parts! I’ve spent a good portion of time so far this April identifying what’s growing on this new property of ours. Here’s everything I grabbed shots of in early April, starting with two shots of the buds from what we think at this point is a magnolia tree: [...]

Housewarmings and Laura and Beer, Oh My!

By in Family, Main

HOLY CRAP, it’s cold. I’m sitting at my desk (which is no longer under piles and piles of boxes and various non-unpacked rubble) waiting for Laura to call me to pick her up at the airport, because this weekend is… OUR HOUSEWARMING! I am completely psyched, and our house is in really good shape, considering [...]

Saying Goodbye to Apartment Life

By in Family, Main

Wow, last night was strange. I went over to do a last vacuuming of our apartment before we hand over the keys, and it was like a flood of emotion to go through that empty apartment one last time. So many big things happened in that apartment over the few years Jim and I lived [...]

Big Grown-Up Step: A House

By in Family, Main

I’m sitting at Starbucks, and I should be writing my Nanowrimo novel, but instead I’ve spent the past hour getting caught up on all of you, your blog posts and Facebook updates and comments you’ve made to me that I haven’t replied to yet. Life is really good right now. Today, Jim and I signed [...]
