Angelversaries are no fun

You know you'll have one every year for the rest of forever. They say it gets easier and I suppose it kinda does but it's different. I lost a child at 26 days of...

Snow day!

Got about 8” of snow between yesterday afternoon and this morning! Sadie was obsessed with watching the snow fall yesterday. She didn’t quite understand that we needed more then a dusting before we could sled or build a snowman. Luckily last night Jeff was motivated to shovel, so Sadie joined him. That girl is a...

She didn’t quite understand that we needed more then a dusting before we could sled or build a snowman. Luckily last night Jeff was motivated to shovel, so Sadie joined him. That girl is a mule!

Had to strip my color, apply the gray, and then apply a glaze to give some sheen. The end product was a silvery gray. Really subtle but gorgeous! We'll work on a richer gray in 4 weeks or sooner, if she gets an opening. So excited! I've...

I'll take it a step further, I haven't been this awake and functioning in... 10 years! Some background on my coffee addiction. I'm a night owl I'm a web developer / graphic designer I'm a...

Springtime!

Long and cold winter had me going crazy just waiting for spring's arrival. Here's some photos of last year's early gardening efforts and some newly planted gems I got last weekend. [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" ids="497,500,498,501,499,504,503,502,505,506"] I got my love of gardening from my mom. I remember as a child, my mom received mail order gardening cards - imagine a box of full-color index cards with info about plants, flowers, trees...
