Our attic is BIG, roughly 1600 square feet, and rises 1.5 stories above the rest of the house. When we moved in 9 years ago, it was filled with all sorts of stuff. Built-in cabinets and shelving, semi-framed walls, and lots and lots of flies. The space had served as a workshop and storage area for the former owner whose fondness for collecting left it filled to the brim. Wood was everywhere; stacked in piles, propped against surfaces, arranged on the floor. Honestly it was hard to see the forest for all the trees. Here’s what it looked like in 2009.
Let’s hear it for SNOW! The first big storm of 2018 is here and the weatherman assures me it WILL BE BAD. Can I get a HOLLA! from all the folks playing Tetris and making babies right now! WOOT! WOOT!
Happy New Year! Happy NEW YEAR!!!!~**!!!**~!!! !!! I would bang pots and pans, but I’m too busy TYPING. SO. 2018!! You’re here! The year I’ve been dreaming of the past 18 years has finally arrived and I’m both giddy and nostalgic. 18 years since I made my first human. 18 years and I’ll soon be the owner of an adult!
A year ago I received a wonderful present. A “chocolate box” of 5 chickens! One white, 1 speckled, 1 blonde, 1 black, and an amber-colored Amercauna. The hens had mostly stopped laying and rather than dispatch and eat them, a friend kindly offered them to my husband to give to me as an anniversary gift. YAYYYY!
You know how it feels when you’re so dog-tired you’re almost delusional?
Yesterday, late morning. We stopped at the supermarket on the way to a friend’s house and as I had a lizard on my shoulder and the dog in the car, my daughter kindly offered to run in.
