It Was 20 Years Ago Today

Us, about to head off to his first renfaire.  Seeing as he's off performing in it again tomorrow as an actor, I think we can say he enjoyed it.

(or possibly, how #Elfquest changed my life) (Warning, super geeky content ahead!) It was 20 years ago today (give or take) that I met the man who would become my husband. I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons since high school, though I would have loved to play earlier than that I didn’t have anyone to…

Today was a Wonderful Day

Today was a wonderful day: The dog woke me up at 6:30 I made coffee, ran out to get some donuts for breakfast, and had breakfast on the porch. I unclogged the vacuum and washed out the filter.  No wonder it wasn’t working, it had a warren of dust bunnies and a very clogged filter! I…

For pretty much all of my adult life I have had a dream house.  I’m quite sure I’m not alone in this. My dream home has had many changing features, but a few things have remained pretty constant.  One of those dreams was to have a screen porch with a day bed.  A “sleeping porch”,…

Spring is coming!  The robin (which never left all winter and has…

33 bags and counting

That’s right, 33 contractor bags of garbage have gone out to the curb during our moving so far.  More to come.  4 rooms nearly complete, and that’s including the attic and basement, the two worst areas of the house for cluttery crap.  Way to go, us! Of course, this begs the question why the heck…

This morning I spent some time watching the Today show to see coverage of the ongoing disaster in Japan. My heart goes out to those people in the affected areas. On the TV they were talking to an American teacher there who had escaped the complete devastation of the village she was staying in, along with many others, because the town had early warning Tsunami sirens…
