BTW, you may have noticed some goofy date stamps. I'm trying to work through a backlog of posts so I can get up to date... only 2 weeks behind now. 🙂 You're not in a tesseract - I'm just condensing time!
I’m having trouble keeping up with regular blogging. Its new, and new habits take a while to take hold. So thank you for being patient and bearing with me. I have no trouble writing the posts. I just can’t quite get around to posting them in a timely manner. Sooo then time goes by and … Continue reading On Blogging…
The Scenic Route: Montello
If this isn't the scenic route, I don't know what is. (Yes, that is a double rainbow.) Hope you all had a great 4th!
Now that the warm weather is teasing us with the occasional warm sunny day, we are finally able to go Up North for the weekends. Everyone in Wisconsin goes “Up North” for the weekend. Literally every owns a cabin out of the city. It’s a riot. Friday afternoon in the office break room in Wisconsin … Continue reading Cabin Life
MY NOT SO GREEN THUMB: Starting Seeds
Its been far too cold this spring to get plants in yet. In the meantime, we decided to get brave and start seeds inside. I’ve always been curious about seeds, but with the tiny apartment in Queens, and a curious kitty, it was never a practical idea.

MY NOT-SO-GREEN THUMB: An Introduction

A big, old fashioned victory garden with a bean tent, and trellises of cucumbers and zucchinis, tangled pumpkin and watermelon vines along the ground, and bright red tomatoes ripe all summer long. You know, something like this one: Look how amazing it is! … Continue reading MY NOT-SO-GREEN THUMB: An Introduction
Ways I Saved Today: 2 Week Catch-up
I’ve had trouble getting started on this project. The funny thing is, I write down what I didn’t (or did, ahem) spend money on. But then I never get around to posting. So here are two recent weeks of savings (or, not savings, some days.). There is certainly room for improvement! Two Weeks Ago: Monday: … Continue reading Ways I Saved Today: 2 Week Catch-up
Ways I Saved Today
I have a student loan, lingering and annoying me. And I’m desperately trying to pay it off within the year. With that in mind, I’m trying out weekly write-up called “Ways I Saved Today”. I doubt it will be anything revolutionary, and I doubt you’ll find any money saving tips (for those, go to the … Continue reading Ways I Saved Today
It took me a while to admit I love Taylor Swift (T-Swizzle!) and it took me a while to admit I love Chip & Joanna from Fixer Upper. But you know what? I do, I really do. I would gladly spend Saturday morning sipping coffee, browsing my latest Magnolia magazine while listening to TS 1989, … Continue reading Acknowledgements
Thoughts on Moving
Ok so we moved. And we (and the cat) survived. Success #1! Here’s what I learned from the move process in general: I have a lot of stuff. And, closely related to #1 is I like my stuff. I really like my stuff. But it takes way more boxes than you anticipate. Like double. And … Continue reading Thoughts on Moving
