A Pre-Winter’s Day

October 29, 2009

We’re preparing for the winter season, and it’s got me pooped already! Our windows are 100 years old (maybe older) and the thin glass just barely protects us from the frigid weather outside. Today I decided to make some makeshift storm windows for them, on the inside of the room– duct tape sheets of heavy-duty […]

I found this cute, breezy quiz from Mariuca. Too cute! Red isn’t too bad, I guess. Better than avocado green or dung hill brown, eh? You Are a Red Crayon Your world is colored with bright, vivid, wild colors. My dining room is deep red, with linen curtains, red bow tie swags, and dark green […]

To even remember this makes my heart quake inside and my blood run cold. But FINALLY after reading all of your horrific posts about your own spider experiences, I have one of my own to share. I had just gotten into bed. I was getting all cozy and snuggly (the temps are in the 30s […]

Good Prices on Toys

Comments Off on Good Prices on Toys

I’ve always been an early gift shopper. We don’t “do” Christmas, but we do “do” Thanksgiving– it’s our biggest holiday of the year. I do buy presents for the kids, but we strive very hard to keep the holiday centered around thanks to God and not gimmegimmegimme presents. I much prefer to get the gift-shopping […]

I saw this meme at Ann’s Snap Edit & Scrap. It looked like fun, and I like memes like these because you can be so whimsical. It’s supposed to be 33 questions, but I posted the ones I was interested in. And had answers to! So here’s a fun little diversion for a Friday… What […]

It’s Great to Realize You Have Free Stuff Waiting!

Comments Off on It’s Great to Realize You Have Free Stuff Waiting!

The only thing better than finding stuff for free is finding stuff for free that you didn’t expect to find! Kind of like getting a surprise birthday present the day after, or finding a $20 in your pocket that you forgot you had. I have REALLY good news for you on Charter Internet– did you […]

Wired.com has a post showcasing 35 years of the world’s best microscopic photography. The photos are amazing, and not just because they are neat photos. It’s because of the marvelous design in even the tiniest things in our world! Here are a few that I liked very much: These are nanocrystals deposited on a silicon […]

Comments Off on I Can’t Believe It’s Sold Out!

Today was the day! Yes, ladies and gentlemen! Did you know what today was?!?! Windows 7 was released, after much, much hype. This constitutes the first time I have actually paid attention to the hype. I am a blossoming geek. I love software. I have computers running all the Windows versions, way back to 3.1. […]

I hit the ground running (again) today. I’d procrastinated going to the grocery store for about two weeks now (I’m working on a record; 2 weeks is the most I’ve been able to delay it so far!), but the children were languishing for food and drink. Sheesh. Isn’t a roof over their heads enough?! hee […]
