    October 23, 2016 admin

    I went to the hardware store on a mission but to be honest I was in sort of a pissy mood. Already having started the project once, and not happy with where it was going I had to head back out to the hardware store to buy even more lumber and supplies. It’s a part…

    September 4, 2016 admin

    I get lots of ideas for crafts and projects when I’m at my parent’s house, largely because they’re both pretty creative, I think. So when we went to  visit so Rob could buy his new car and I could refill my prescriptions I wound up making things as I often do. My mom really likes…

    August 17, 2016 admin

    Rob is a super nice guy. As an example, we were at my parents’ house and we’re all doing our things in the den. My dad and I were probably on our laptops or something and Momma was probably covered in dogs playing on her tablet. And Rob, I bet you anything he was playing…

  • Homemade Orange Oil

    February 7, 2016 admin

    It’s pretty dang neat but oranges actually grow here. And lemons and limes and all of that jazz does really well here, too. There are these little oranges that you can get at the store for like 8 for $1 and Rob and I have been going nuts on them. We’re also getting after blood…

  • Colorful Clothespin Trivets

    January 24, 2016 admin

    So Mr. Rob has been cooking up a storm, lately. He’s a big fan of skillet meals so he often brings the cast iron skillet over to the table and we can get more as needed and it stays hot. It’s pretty smart, really. When I cook I dirty up a bazillion pots and pans…
