I know this is a horse property we bought but this scary golden-eyed horse “window” outside on the patio is going to have to find a new home… I’m back for some calling out of stuff that I think needs calling out, woo hoo! Fuck civility. “Are we really to believe that the same people who voted for a man…

Continuing my walk down memory lane, I remember my very first DIY trellis, made from the branches of a holly tree cut down in my yard, jammed into the ground and attached with household string. Sure enough it worked, and sure enough, I realized at the time that THIS many green beans weren’t my jam. I’ve evolved since then on…

I cannot WAIT to tear this kitchen up! Nice shape but those upper cabinets are coming out, those ugly-arse countertops are going, and black & vanilla appliances? Um bub-bye… Life gets better as you get on in years? Yes please, I’ll take it! Europe again leading the way with environmental protection, while a dipshit in our community’s Nextdoor page bitch…

So much going on in my brain right now! One piece of it all (beyond all of the logistics like paperwork, inspections, getting our house on the market this week and, of course, the financials) that we’re obsessing over is figuring out where the ducks, bees, clothesline and garden will be. While we’re not going to be planting anything, our…

Impatient for our house to come up, but loving watching our late spring flowers give us their final show… here are some things I’ve been reading I thought I’d share (and of course, something to boogie to at the end…): Life better once I hit 50, they claim? Six years to go, I’ll tell you if that’s true when I…

Eco-licious: the Danny Seo Rocks edition

Last week on Earth Day, as some may have noticed, I was a bit distracted with the significance of the day in less Earthy ways, so today I want to dedicate my Eco-licious post to one of my favorite magazines, Naturally, Danny Seo. Their tagline is “where style meets sustainability” and is FINALLY filling the long lonely void where my…

In our efforts to deep-clean the house in preparation for sale, getting in the nooks and crannies of our stove was a priority, and this de-greaser recipe is pretty darn awesome. And yeah, it’s just a variation of the many other types of DIY cleaners using stuff we all (should) have around the house. Serious inspiration: prisons with no guards…

This week – lots of shit hitting the fan, lots to call out, and of course, some music to slink around to at the end… “Be on guard for unnecessarily-gendered terms (hysterical, shrill, “man up”, “grow a pair”, ballsy). Notice how those examples are all predicated on the assumption that acting like a man is inherently good, and acting like a woman is…

Thank you, Dr. King. Your inspiration continues to this day, 50 years after we lost you, and we will never give up hope for a better tomorrow. It’s a big day. Read this. And on other topics… “Where once she was edgy and provocative, she is now absurd and offensive. Her views are muddled and incoherent. She is more invested…

Well, I just went to Next Level Burger for the first time – where one can enjoy a delicious burger and a to-die-for shake that are all plant-based (and not-“Frankenmeaty” at all). Proof positive that it is entirely possible to be, as they proudly say in Oregon, a fat vegan. “As long as we don’t have any kind of representation…
