I posted yesterday that I have been trying to clean the floor pan of the shower. So this morning I was cleaning and the glass door came off the tracks. Insert your favorite 4 letter expletive. I tried to put it back on the tracks when.... CRASH!!!!!! Holy $%;! I screamed. Stopped and felt all… Continue reading Don’t try this at home…oh wait, we are at home…
This morning while driving to work I listened to music radio. For many years I would turn on talk radio to hear the latest news and grumblings about all things political and happenings going on in Chicago. I guess today was time to make a change, to go back to what I used to love… Continue reading So Many Changes
Hi Friends, Me here. It's been a little crazy here lately and I haven't been able to sit down and get a post in until just now. Last week I took our dog Holly in to the Vet for her annual exam and asked them to figure out what a big lump was on her… Continue reading Up-Cycling T-Shirts to help Our Dog Heal!
This is a good bye post and a post just for me to remember the best cat I've ever owned -- and I add to say ever KNOWN. Hands Down. Chloe came into our lives in July 2009 and has been a re-occurring feature here on the blog. What made her so different from all… Continue reading Sad Day Here – We said goodbye to our 1 in 2 Million
Our refrigerator heard us talking about replacing it. I KNOW it heard us. I mean, after all we were talking about it right in front of it. Last night we noticed everything in the refrigerator was warm. Sigh. I spent the morning cleaning everything out and dumping everything. Our town recycles so I had to… Continue reading Hold On Kitchen! You’re next on the DIY list!
Sigh. Just no words. It's 25 degrees and we have snow. I moved our newly purchased garden plants (what haven't been planted) into the garage and then covered the pots with heavy plastic. I hope it is enough. We'll have a high of 40 degrees today so hopefully the plants will warm up, or… Continue reading Blood Moon? What Blood Moon, We Have Snow!
I've moved the computer from upstairs, where it sat next to my sewing machine these past few months while we worked on our downstairs re-model, and just now have brought it down to another semi-adjustable location so I could work on posting updates when I received a message on my phone. ..."sorry to have to… Continue reading Looking Out at a Cold Cold Earth
(Updated...Wordpress deleted half of this post! So I'm re-posting!) Hi Everyone! It has been a couple of weeks since I've posted so I thought I'd take a moment just to get caught up. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Holly was diagnosed with a couple of tumors. Over many conversations I chose to have the… Continue reading Catching Up! ~What gets done with convelescing dogs…
Hi Everyone, I thought I would update you all on the health of our little charge. Here she is dressed up and ready to go for a walk (taken last winter after that t-shirt rug finish). Well, in the last week we have heard the news from the needle aspirations and have gone back for… Continue reading The Pup Report – It’s been a busy week
I don’t post too often about our pets but occasionally they take a staring role in what goes on around here. Holly has been in our care for a little over a year now. We have been ‘fostering’ her for a friend of ours and last Saturday we took her to see a Vet about… Continue reading Pets Get Sick Too, Some Sad News This Week
