July 28, 2021 – Limbo

As I sit here tonight, I am wondering to myself, “How many more answers to their questions must we provide before they’re satisfied?” And when I refer to ‘they’, I’m referring to the people who are ‘very’ interested in our house. As it turns out, the open house that was held a couple of daysContinue reading “July 28, 2021 – Limbo”

July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk

What a strange day it’s been! An open house was scheduled so I suggested to my husband that we plan a little overnight getaway and spend some time with my family on the other side of the mountains (since we had to make ourselves scarce anyway). After checking with the dog boarder to see ifContinue reading “July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk”

July 25, 2021 – Photo

I call this photo ‘Nature’s Candy’. When we first moved into our home, a friend of the family gave us some starter thornless blackberry bushes. Once we planted them, they flourished, so much so that they’ve practically taken over the garden. My husband trimmed them way back in the spring but that didn’t seem toContinue reading “July 25, 2021 – Photo”

July 24, 2021 – Self-Sabotage

If you’d like me to bungle something for you, give me a shout. I don’t mind helping you out, I’m a great ‘bungler’. I’ve been doing it for the better part of my life and have had tons of practice. And there seems to be no end in sight as I continue to bungle things,Continue reading “July 24, 2021 – Self-Sabotage”

July 22, 2021 – Milestones and more.

I reached a significant milestone this week. Since I started my blog back in September of 2020, I have managed to accumulate 302 followers. In fact, carlie, you helped me reach the big 3-0-0 and I’d like to thank you for that! I’ve been at this for ten months solid and although it hasn’t resultedContinue reading “July 22, 2021 – Milestones and more.”

July 21, 2021 – Original Artwork

Ok, all I ask is that you be kind. I know there are numerous things wrong with this pastel painting but I love it anyway. Ok, maybe I don’t necessarily love it but I still like it a lot. I completed this still life probably 20 years ago and it’s all wonky, but I loveContinue reading “July 21, 2021 – Original Artwork”

July 20, 2021 – On a scale of one to ten.

This evening, the phone rang and I let it to go voicemail. I always screen incoming calls because I don’t particularly like dealing with solicitors and I was unsure of who was calling as I didn’t recognize the number. After the ‘beep’, a female voice started up about animal control and her husband moving outContinue reading “July 20, 2021 – On a scale of one to ten.”
