FO Fridays

FO or Finished Object Fridays is where I intend to showcase Finished Objects, be they knitting, spinning or the dining room (which is not finished yet).  Today’s FO is kind of special.

In September of 2008, I found myself with nothing special on the needles, so I was casting about for something to make.  I […]

A new post…

I cannot believe that I haven’t blogged since November 19th.  No wonder WordPress didn’t recognize me when I logged on.  That, of course, gives you an idea of how busy it has been.

It seems that ever since we moved into the house, we’ve been busy little bees.  First we had to get the 1st […]

Plagues?

Having a weird week at the Forts Ferry farmhouse.

On Sunday night we got home from a wonderful evening out with my brother and sister-in-law, to a decidedly skunky smell.  It was all around the house, but we figured there must have been a particularly strong skunk in the area.  We’d had animal nibblings around […]

Another week has flown by

It’s Friday morning.  I had a client scheduled for 1:00pm, but she cancelled.  It’s okay, she’s 78 years old and entitled to be “too damn tired to come out today.”  I adore her, so I cut her a lot of slack.  I hope when I’m her age people cut me slack too.

All of you […]

Where are the trash bags?

Some moves can be organized and some disorganized.  This has been one of the less organized, and boy am I paying the price.  We are completely out of the apartment and in the new house, and I have never felt less settled.  I sit now in my living room looking at 3 dining room chairs, […]

There’s This House….

The oldest part of it was built in the 1850’s, the next oldest part was built between 1850 and 1900, the newest part was built in the 1980’s. It’s old. It’s wonderful. We move in on Halloween.

In the meantime, this house has been eating our lives.  See, it’s […]

We’ll return to our regularly […]

Another Celebration (or how turning 50 keeps being fun)

Okay, I gave you the rundown on the first birthday weekend and into the week.  Just when I thought the celebrations were done, and it was going to be a downward slide to next year (51…what’s the fun in that?), there was a family BBQ at my brother and sister-in-law’s house.

To my utter surprise, […]

The Big 5-0!! (or the post that took 3 weeks to write)

This post has taken forever to write, load photos for, and generally get posted.  Some of it was my own fault, but a large chunk of it had to to do with my internet connection and WordPress itself.  Twice I saved my draft and twice I came back to the first paragraph having been saved.  […]

Mama’s got a brand new look!
