Don’t Forget Your Yearbook

I should be cleaning right now.

I know for a fact that there are way too many dustbunnies and random pieces of Captain Crunch floating around here at the farm.

But I’m not. 

Cleaning that is.


Instead I’m spending all my time over here.

At Becca’s. 


Becca is like the prom queen and president of student council all rolled into one. 

I’m actually a little in awe of her super-talented self.  If we were to schedule a blogger meeting and all the bloggers met together, I would want to sit by Becca.  You would too, but I would call first dibs and put my backpack next to hers.

And then I would ask her question after question like:

No More Freshy Decorating

My husband told me he doesn’t like “freshy decorating.”

Actually the exact quote was, “Why do we have to have so much freshy decorating around here?”


Freshy decorating?

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that on HGTV before.

And I’m sure the DIY network never featured it.

“It’s a Cinch” Take Two

Sometimes I am so lame.

As in L. A. M. E.

And this one took the cake (and the fork and the spoon and maybe a plate or two).

Remember the party we are having at the end of the month where every project is going to be a cinch?  Well, as part of introducing the party, we were supposed to post an “It’s a Cinch” project each week.

On Monday.

I guess this past Monday I was a little too all about myself and where I blog and if I light candles and when I put lipstick on and where I got my kitchen table.

And I forgot.Continue reading ““It’s a Cinch” Take Two”

The Pass It On Project

There are many different types of kindness.

There’s boy scout helping the elderly lady cross the road kindness.

There’s Sir Walter Raleigh throwing a coat over a puddle for Queen Elizabeth kindness.

There’s volunteering your time and donating and collecting items for disaster relief kindness.

In this world there are so many ways that just a little kindness can make such a big difference.

When I asked my husband what he thought kindness was….

…..he said he thought kindness was wives who actually watched the March Madness games instead of sitting on the couch blogging through the entire tournament season,  all while acting like they were watching the games with their husband.


I don’t know if I’m ready for that kind of kindness yet.

Do You Light a Candle?

Do you ever wonder where people blog?

Do you ever wonder how they write a post?

I do.


I read your post about the easiest burlap wreath you will ever make….or the post about the nests made of chocolate and peanut butter…..or the post about what those little stickers on fruit mean….

….and it inspires me.  (Seriously.  And to think I have been peeling off those stickers for years and never looking at them).

And all these posts about stickers and nests and burlap make me curious.

Why?  When?  Where?  How?  Do you blog?

Just in case you were curious like me, here’s where I write most of my posts. 

My kitchen.

The Perfect Ending

I knew when I saw these for the first time.

I just knew.

They were an ABC after-school-special just waiting to happen.

Remember those after-school-specials?

Remember the one where the girl was not that cute and she was wearing glasses and frumpy clothes with not cute hair and she was super shy.  And she didn’t really have any friends.  And for some reason she was always drawing in a notebook.Continue reading “The Perfect Ending”

I Am So Over It

I am so going on Facebook and unfriending the plumbing in our house.  Then I’m changing my status to “disappointed in you.”

Plumbing….you are on notice….this relationship is officially over.

I just don’t think I can be friends anymore.

At this point, I am so over it.


I am so over leaking.

I am so over drain pipes and wet drywall and water where it shouldn’t be.

I am so over this.Continue reading “I Am So Over It”

It’s A Cinch

Do you remember the impossibilities challenge?

If you do…..wasn’t it inspiring?

If you don’t… here to see 361 people who set out to accomplish their Impossible

                                                               ……..and did it.

Recently it’s been kind of lonely around here without all those impossibles.

I miss them.

I mean we have told each other what we wanted our blogs to be when they grew up and we wrapped ourselves in smocked burlap and hit the town and wondered what life would be like without the letter Q.Continue reading “It’s A Cinch”
