More color in the garden – particularly stoked about the lupine (top right) going nuts as the last two years the aphids were manhandling this plant so bad (this spring I neem-oiled the hell out of them every other day well before they even budded, that and the milder spring may have helped). The pink poppies? Definitely getting divided at…

It’s May and after 2 days in the 80’s we’re back down to unseasonably low temps in the 50s. WTF Portland weather! Coolest weather I’ve seen it here in a very long time. Shit better change by the end of the month as I’ve got 16 tomato starts that will need to go in the beds by then before they…

Our tulips are totally going like gangbusters!!! Woo hoo!! Got a zillion different colors out there (obviously I have a thing for red…), just seeing the beginnings of the white and yellow ones and will have some multicolors coming up soon as well. By far my favorite flower…my only wish is they’d bloom all year… Getting to the middle of…

The ladies are now outside full time ! In their coop with a heatlamp secured way up high at night, and out in their run during the day (but with the coop door open as when it’s windy they like to go inside for their afternoon naps). Today it’s supposed to hit 60 and the sun is shining so I…

While it was already on our Homesteading Skills list, we were extra-inspired by Blue Missouri Skies Homestead’s blog on rendering lard, and so my husband convinced his workplace to let him take home a bag of pork fat scraps they would have ordinarily tossed, chop it up, heat it up in the crock pot, and made it into our very…

An advocate for women? My ass. How can a woman whose mother was raped by her father, and whose father bragged about his history of sexual assault, support her father? How can a woman claim to be an advocate for women when she has done exactly nothing to fight for women’s rights? She is repulsive. What a fucking crapper of…

Today is all about beauty in the women around us – it’s time to celebrate REAL beauty that emanates from the courage, kindness, strength and openness that great women inspire us with each and every day, from the famous to the everyday women in our world…and a couple of girls as well who are well on their way… Beautiful Woman…

Left: Just after rubbing her face in the thyme bush, her latest and greatest way of scratching her face (which leads to the most hilarious sneeze we’ve ever seen). Right: the weird stare she gives when she’s on the couch, making you feel awkward. Dang – next week is March, y’all! It will be Spring in less than a month…

Well let’s not talk about how a guy who’s been trying to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency is now head of the EPA. And let’s not talk about how even Russia is laughing the “president” off and sending subs into our waters. And let’s really really not talk about how the domestic adoption agency’s $500 “training” (which instead was primarily…

Another week gone by, another biopsy done, another TWW that will not lead to a pregnancy result but still hoping for a BFP of another kind, the one that hollers out “Receptive” in all its glory. Here’s the latest to get your link fixes going for the week’s end… Well, damn. In the waiting room to get my MRI, I’m…
