Week in Pictures

Ruby was obsessing about getting into the car when we got a surprise burst of sunshine, so I took her for a ride down to the St John’s Bridge and walked around for a wee bit. With all the rain, the river has flooded and you can see how the water has come up onto the grass where we’d normally…

Slowly but surely, the first flowers are starting to bud, from the daphnes (left) to the rosemary (which the bees will be stoked about – as soon as it warms up enough to emerge) and the crocuses. As my husband would say, noice!!   I’ve always had a mad crush on Alicia Keys and it’s gotten into a true love…

Well we are getting closer to Duckville! 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…

Did I mention we made our first snowman together in this lovely snow? Dan did the heavy lifting andI gave him some Australian flair with Dan’s Magpie scarf, and since there was no spare hat, I gave him a mohawk out of rosemary sprigs 🙂 Ruby definitely showed us her independent streak in this snow. We’d just be standing there…

While my back isn’t up for true hiking, I was dying for a nature walk so we loaded up the dog and drove over to Cathedral Park on an awesome foggy day and enjoyed the beauty of the St John’s Bridge. Ahhh… Duck house construction is fully underway (top photo) and continuing to get inspiration as to how to incorporate…

2016 in Pictures

It’d be too easy to say that the year was a shitty one with the many difficulties my husband and I waded through, but with this post I want to celebrate what was beautiful, and use that to forge ahead, because as Florence and the Machine reminded me as I wrote this… The dog days are over The dog days…

Now, time to focus on the positives of the past week… A bunch of blobbing going on over the holiday weekend, binge watching more LOST (we’re up to season 4 and I’m still amazed at how much I don’t remember from the first time I watched it 10 years ago…re-watching the love story between Desmond and Penny was so lovely),…
