Week in Pictures

Our trilliums are coming up, our white tulips are going nuts, and my husband picked me a gorgeous bouquet as well! I love Spring! HahaHAAAAA. Jesus Fucking Jelly Beans. Too awesome not to buy at Walgreen’s. My husband got his first ever Easter basket from me and I filled it full of the cheesiest things, from the chicken that squawks…

And finally, here’s my own personal dream team I saw this week who have supported my mental and physical as we count down to our Sixth and Final Transfer Day. Clockwise from top left: Julie from Written on the Body (been going to her for THE best massages for a zillion years, and the only provider I can completely let…

Not exciting to some but for us, two new ceiling light fixtures are AWESOME!!! If you buy a house and nearly every single one is a pull-chain “nipple light”, finally finding a way to replace them with normal fixtures is a mega celebration. Even better?

As my husband would say, noice!!   I’ve always had a mad crush on Alicia Keys and it’s gotten into a true love…

As you can see, it looks a bit Dr. Seuss-like with it’s crookedness and hey, it’s the first time we’ve built a door so things match up as best as they can, heh, but it is keeping fairly dry all things considered. Still have some detail work, but otherwise, our big goal now…

Husband is in month two of his self-education in the World o’ Meat. After he got spoiled on his birthday this past year with books focused on All Things Meat, I suggested he try a different recipe each month so he can continue learning right here at home. So we corned our own beef for Christmas, then in January he…

Oh my! The ideas from friends and Pinterest and other sites about duck housing, feeding, and enclosures are just making me crazy excited! While it rained, I was busy sanding, priming, painting more scrap wood for the siding (something I can do with a shitty back, yayyy), then rushing outside during the dry moments to attach it to the last…
