Alright, don’t say you weren’t warned: it’s time to vent as some serious shit going on that people need to know about if they don’t already…and hey, it’s been one helluva week in my world and the world at large…so here goes. #45 complains about pulling down statues of racist pigs, yet wants to reduce and/or eliminate many of our…

OK folks, so tomorrow is Monday the 21st and know what that means? It means I will no longer see half of the nightly newscast being spent on where to get eclipse glasses, how many spent 15 hours in traffic to get to the Armpit of Oregon to watch what they can see right here in town. Sorry y’all but…

My girl looking up at me as she lays at the end of our bed on the floor.  Whenever I’m feeling crappy she does this, it’s so sweet. This week has been gorgeous weather – high 70’s, low 80s, perfect for the garden. I personally prefer low 70’s but as long as the house stays cool I’m happy. This year…

First week of 2017? Done. Whew. And I wrote all this on Friday and forgot to post it, so better late than never as in this freezing rain with full on cabin fever for me. Husband is off at work with his new set of YakTrax for his shoes – they may look like parts of a naughty game when…

Post Election To-Do List: Take Your Pick!

Yeah 2016 is coming to a close in so many fucked up ways, but here are some ways you can make things a bit better…as Slate reported: “In the age of Trump, small, individual acts of charity are going to be more necessary than ever. There‚Äôs a strong chance that over the next four years, much of the American social…

Dang, November is next week. That’s awesome. Today we finally got some glorious fall weather after literally record-breaking rain in October (which is usually where the perfect Northwest weather abounds…instead it felt like January, ugh!!), and everyone is pretty giddy that I run into. Husband and I have been balls to the walls in this kitchen remodel, and over the…
