My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. Well, almost. I still need to double check everything. My husband can be a bit obsessive at times, so tonight will be filled with checking and re-checking to make sure we have everything and that the house won’t burn down. We will be getting up tomorrow morning at 2:30am to allow extra time to check things a third time. At least we will be able to sleep on the plane. I’m going...

My lovely sister bought me an indoor (I do live in Portland) mandarin orange tree for my birthday about 3 years ago.  I named him Barry and I love him dearly.  He spent his first two years of life looking pretty much like a stick with a few leafs on it.  Finally he bloomed.  The smell was amazing.  The blooms turned into little mandarins.  I was able to harvest two mandarins off Barry!  They were the...

  Greg and I have lived in our house for 4 years. I love it dearly, but it needs a lot of work. The lady who owned the house before us was a bit nutty.

The second stage of the yard was removing 2 tons of concrete boulders that she had used to made a round...

It’s only fair that I post a picture of Trilly’s brother. Our cats are really brothers and are 6 years old. They are finally mellowing into really great cats. It took years before we were allowed to sleep through the night. They loved to claw us until we woke up to feed them. They had us very well trained. Finally the habit was broken….it’s a super long story that I’m sure I will get into one day....

You will find if you read this blog that I’m totally obsessed with my cats. I don’t have kids and I don’t plan on having kids. Cats are all a girl needs in this world. This is Trilly last year when there was snow outside. I kind of think he looks like a muppet. I am experimenting with uploading pictures. I’m finding it much easier than I had thought. My eyes tend to glaze over when my nerdy husband starts to...

April Fool’s Day


Posted on Apr 1, 2005

So here it begins. I’ve finally taken the leap into the blog world. I am hoping to use this blog as a vehicle to create more things and be less lazy. I have been so inspired by the many craft blogs that have come before me. The one common thread among all of these people is how creative they are and that they are actually making things on a regular basis. I’m hoping the same will happen to me. I am also want use this blog...
