Sweet and Sour Chicken, Anyone?

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Well, this has been a crazy week.  Emmiko had been running a temperature between 100 – 103 degrees for a week and a half and Bo suddenly discovered a lump in his inner thigh.  Mom took Bo to the doctor on Tuesday, who did not like the look of things, and scheduled him to see […]

Ok, I’m Not Bored!

Monday, January 26th, 2009

My mom is doing her best to keep ’09 interesting.  I mortifyingly applaud her efforts.  Um, is that possible? That being said, I’m not going to say that I’m bored or anxious concerning my marital prospects (zero) any time soon. Along those lines, last time I had a day off mom told Bo to do […]

A Touch of California

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

I wish we had fields of these flowers here like we did in California.  Today’s weather made me miss Cool (Yup, it’s a real, true city!). Judging by the comments on my last post, I’ve determined 2 things: 1) I have more than 4 readers. 2) Melonie (Prepared Family) has the same mind as I […]

Oh, Boredom!

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Ok, some random questions for my four readers. 1) What is your least favorite letter of the alphabet to write? 2) If you could pick from anything in the world, what would you choose to be the square root of purple? 3) Which side of your mouth do you primarily chew with?  Don’t pop something in […]

Yay for Funky Skirts!

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Somebody really ought (aught? … a’ight?!) to forbid me from entering fabric stores when I have no money.  That being said, I present to you my new $32.70 (plus 7 hours labor) funky handmade skirt. No, I’m not that white — that would be a tank top. Included in this pic is my handy dandy bandana, strictly […]

Think Dorkie

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

I wore p-jammie pants to work yesterday….under my skirt.  That’s how cold I was.  And when people said, “I can’t believe you didn’t wear pants today”, I told them “I DID!” and lifted the hem of my skirt triumphantly to reveal my ever-so-snazzy blue and white striped pj’s.  I continue to amaze them. Then when […]

Freeway Buddies

Friday, January 16th, 2009

First off, I’m freezing.  Anything below 30 degrees should have never been invented.  If we at least had snow, I might not complain.  Moving on. During my 30-something mile drive to work Tuesday through Saturday, I typically pass a selection of the same people on the freeway.  And lately I’ve been tempted to start waving […]

I’ve recently come to two conclusions.  One good, one bad. I intimidate even the most flirtatious young men with my icy gaze of deprecation.  That’s the good thing.  My other point is quite humbling. I look like these chicks when I grin: Oh.  Maybe that’s why I scare them.

Bonfire Basics

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Rule #1 – Do not place your bonfire materials in a “ditch” that you know used to be a creek bed.  Chances are, despite a year long drought, you will have a week of rain and the creek will resurrect itself before you ever had the chance to start your fire. But, if you are like […]

Cozie-ness Defined

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Sometimes all a girl needs is a cup of hot cocoa, a bowl of Schwan’s Strawberry Supreme ice cream, a good book from the 1800’s, a roaring fire and an old homemade quilt. I fully intend to work my tail off tomorrow.
