Sugar High on National Pie Day

14 Mar

Sitting on the couch, eating pumpkin pie with Cool Whip as Kathleen helps herself to the occasional spoonful of cold, white, fluff and watches Ruby Gloom.

Daylight savings has taken its toll on our routine. I may actually have to set a morning alarm for the next few days in hopes of getting the toddler and me up at a more reasonable hour and reset our internal clocks. Not waking up until 10 (Mon and Tues) really throws off nap and bed time.

The crazy amount of snow we got this winter is mostly gone. Yay! Now we wait for planting time. There’s a spot in our front yard that tomatoes love, and we may try bell peppers in a box they enjoyed a few years ago. Not too sure what we are going to do for a regular garden, though. Between the greenhouse frame collapsing under the snow, and the good possibility of the ridiculously free-range chickens around here terrorizing an unprotected garden I already fear for the safety of possible seedlings. :/

I need to find a place to set up my writing computer. There’s a project close to my heart that needs to get off the ground and out there sooner rather than later. It will require a website / blog all its own, and I hope to be able to draft a few friends into helping. Hopefully it will be useful for those it’s created for, as well as financially helpful to those of us who make it and keep it running.

I really need to trim this kid’s finger nails.

Ooh, my brother-in-law just brought home burgers and fries. Yum.

 

#MirthMusicMon – Yay, A New Post!

13 Mar

The kid is asleep, the linky has been changed over, and pumpkin pie is waiting as a reward for getting this done in a timely manner. Let’s do this! 🙂

Kathleen is two, now, and loves anything on wheels, or four legs, for that matter.

I may have to see what she thinks of this song in the morning. Although, she may want one…

#MirthMusicMon – I Recognize that look!

Sorry, guys. Computer’s on the fritz. Still. Again. Grrr…
Hopefully Lonnie can work some magic and get things working correctly soon. :/
Have a great week. 🙂

Monday snuck up on us again.

Someone should start a petition or something. 😉

For this Mirth and Music Monday I did a little digging and found a cute scene fragment from one of The Thin Man movies.

Hehe, I earn that look from my husband at least once a week. 😀

#MirthMusicMon – Long Hair: Yes or No?

30 Jan

While my hair isn’t quite this long, I am getting a little tired of the weight, time it takes to wash and dry, and honestly, after a certain length, French twists and cute pigtails are out.

It was a childhood promise to myself that if I stopped chewing my hair (and nails) it would grow to be really long and beautiful. Well, it’s been waist-length for a few years, and I’m kinda over it for now. Not like I’m brave enough to go for a bob or anything, but perhaps back up to the bottom of my my shoulder blades?

(The nails are staying, though. lol)

Anyway, here are some of the annoyances of having long hair.

I’m one of those women who learned how to count bobby pins as I put them in. It hurts when you come across a lost one while brushing out a ‘do.

And if you want to maintain sanity, and a decent night sleep, you braid your hair or put it way up on the crown of your head when you’re heading to bed. More than once I’ve woken up to hair wrapped around my neck. Just a little adrenaline in the middle of the night. hehe

#MirthMusicMon – Happy Boxing Day!

26 Dec

It’s the day after Christmas. I hope you had a good one.

Our family still has Christmas plans. With all the snow, bad traffic and surprises it was a little difficult to get us all together for any one event, but, whatever. The family is getting big enough we’re starting to rent places to have enough room for us all to sit down. 😀

Here’s a little post Christmas humor for your amusement.

#MirthMusicMon – Christmas is Getting Closer!

12 Dec

I…have yet to start shopping for Christmas gifts.

There, I said it.

I know what everyone is getting , though.

Books! 😀

Probably 2 shopping trips and everyone will be covered. Then comes the fun part.

Wrapping them all. :/  Ick.

Oh, well. I have lots of chocolate to help ease the pain. 🙂

The real struggle will be acting all productive like after my toddler is down for the night. lol

#MirthMusicMon – I Love Princess Bride

21 Nov

It’s an great movie that still makes me laugh and jump even though I grew up on it, and still watch it at least annually.

So, for Mirth and Music Monday let’s take a look at a more recent interview with some of the cast.

And who can forget the song at the end?

#MirthMusicMon – Anglophile Confessions

7 Nov

Sorry, guys, not sure what Kathleen did, but about 10 keys on my laptop aren’t working right now . Hopefully it will be easily fixed, but for now I’m stuck using the on-screen keyboard . Nice to have the option, otherwise I  wouldn’t have even been able to put in the password to turn the poor abused thing on. :/

But, now that I got a post out I get to reward myself with a mug of tea and a chocolate covered blintz. Yum. 🙂

.

Anglophile means someone who really likes British culture, people, their royalty, etc., and I am one. Having lived in England for 4 years as a child, it’s not surprising that I love quite a b…

#MirthMusicMon – Halloween Fun!

30 Oct

My daughter turns 2 this winter. Do you honestly think cute pictures are the entire reason I’m going to brave the rain and take her trick-or-treating tomorrow? lol

A little something more:

How about this?

Enough fun, now, I have to go put all the ingredients for chili in the slow cooker so we have something warm and filling after a long day in the rain. Yum.

Hoping your Halloween rocks, that’s it for me this week.
