  • It’s a New Year, a week in already

    The first week of the new year (2011) has gone quite fast, yet seems slow as well. The new year started with warmer weather, and that lasted a few days, then back to cold enough to start a fire in the fireplace again. It’s not terribly cold, just normal cold for The South where we […]

  • Winter Begins

    Winter has begun fully for us this week. It’s not “officially Winter” but the “season is here. Yesterday it snow flurried for hours, but no accumulation. Today it’s very cold, still below freezing, reaching that mark maybe, but probably not quite. It’s 31.6 degrees F. on my front porch digital temperature thing, it’s connected wirelessly […]

  • Status Quo

    We had a mini-vacation by going to Charlotte for CKC there last week. Hubby had business there too (made the trip useful for him to be able to create appointments since we’d be there.) It was nice, in some ways. Hard, in many ways. Nice to get home. Not nice to get home. Home is […]

  • Kitchen

    My kitchen is partially better now. We moved the refridgerator to a new spot, close to where it was originally in the house, but down a few feet. It will be the anchor for the island someday. We’ll build it into a closet like structure, and that way put in a small pantry & also […]

  • Getting Ready for Thanksgiving Day

    November is well underway. Time is flying, does so all the time, but moreso now with Thanksgiving right around the corner, which always means even more for us since my girl has her birthday right before, on, or after Thanksgiving. She was born the evening before Thanksgiving. She likes that. Which is great. I was […]

  • Transitioning again

    We moved the big TV down to the “family room” again finally. It’s more finished than before, but still needs some work but is live-able now. It’s been a fight to figure out what to do with this house. Really the main floor is so small & it’s use-ability is pretty much decided from there. […]

  • Kitchen update August 2009

    My kitchen is awaiting a new temporary counter on one side, hubby promises it’ll be such for about 4-weeks at the most. I should have had it already for nearly a week, but here it is, not in yet. Hubby is sleeping on the couch, and I can’t do anything about it myself. We are […]

  • New Major Kitchen Appliances

    We got a new stove and refrigerator about a week ago, well, over a week ago, not this past Friday, the previous Friday. We had icky ones that we got with our house when it was new at the end of 1997. GE bottom line sort of stove, and a decent Kitchen Aide refrigerator, which […]

  • Cooped up and Projects

    Things are greening up massively outside, Spring is here. I feel so cooped up though, with little access to the back yard, only through the dark hole like downstairs, which I despise to go through. It was supposed to be our “family room” but has just become a place where I don’t go, it’s dirty […]

  • My Kitchen – March 2008

    We have been getting our kitchen changed slowly, the past few or more years, with only better changes of late. We now have new cabinets, not actually “installed” but in use. Our old ones are all either moved or thrown away, hurray! The base cabinets are in use where they will be installed permanently and […]
