So we made a fall wreath…

…and it’s kind of gaudy, but looks ok from the road. I don’t know what possessed me but a couple of weekends ago I got the urge to make something fall-ish for the front door, probably still riding momentum from our stellar Halloween decorations, and so I took to the internet for inspiration. I found one on Pinterest (where else) that looked simple enough for … Continue reading So we made a fall wreath…

hearty har har

I was looking at vintage Valentines this morning because free time, and this one cracked me up. So I’m sharing it with you. I have chocolates and cards waiting for kiddo and hubs. Plus, the little one is getting a teddy bear and a new battery powered toothbrush and bubblegum toothpaste. Little Mermaid style, thank you very much. Oh, and I’m making cuban black beans … Continue reading hearty har har

so it goes on the 4th of July

It rained today. I don’t mean it rained for an hour or two, it rained ALL dang day. We didn’t really have solid plans for the 4th anyway but if we had planned on outdoor activities, they weren’t happening. So we ventured to a lazy late breakfast at one of my favorite places that tries a little too hard to be reminiscent of Paris in … Continue reading so it goes on the 4th of July

the latest

I’m more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it’s a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won’t recap the details but here’s a list of sorts…family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini cooper driving, park, meeting new neighbors who turned out to … Continue reading the latest

trumping tiffany’s

So, today….the first day of 2013. Quiet day with kiddo and The Accountant, for the most part. I got a nice run/walk in this morning before the rain, kiddo and I went to Target for miscellany and then to Jersey Mike’s for sandwiches. I went to a movie by myself. The movie was pretty bad but the alone time was quite nice. The Accountant watched … Continue reading trumping tiffany’s

i do stuff, i just don’t write about it

This blog and I haven’t been on speaking terms for about a month it would seem. Which is kind of nice in a way because it means I’ve been too busy actually living life to take time to write about it. Or, more likely it means that I am lazy. At the moment I am using this space as yet another means of procrastination for … Continue reading i do stuff, i just don’t write about it

two things happen when you go to bed at 8:30…

…you write your bizarro late night blog posts at the early hour of 12:30am and you analyze an art heist that happened 22 years ago. Today/yesterday/whatever has been good and bad. Kiddo had her first Easter egg hunt ever today after church services and totally killed it. She was VERY serious about the egg hunting business. You would have thought she was searching for the … Continue reading two things happen when you go to bed at 8:30…

A day at the pumpkin patch

I’m thinking a trip to the local pumpkin patch will become an October tradition. We took kiddo to one last year and she had a great time. This year we found another one a few miles from our current home and decided to check it out on Saturday. She loved the animals and picking out her pumpkin. Its a cute place, well organized and lots … Continue reading A day at the pumpkin patch

grumpy mcgrumperson

I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don’t know but who I think works in accounting…”how was your Christmas” they ask me…I say “it was great, how was yours?” And we carry on. This … Continue reading grumpy mcgrumperson

july 5th

I hope you all had a grand, festive and most importantly, safe holiday weekend. The Accountant and I were off Friday and are both off Monday so that’s a nice weekend lenghthener. We spent a nice day together on Friday and time with kiddo over the rest of the weekend. Our holiday was uneventful really. No family get togethers, no fireworks, no cookouts. How lame are … Continue reading july 5th

cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff

It occurred to me that I need to update my blogroll as some of the ones on the list are defunct, moved, or just plain out of date. That will go on my to-do list. Right after “give the cat a bath”. Meaning, don’t hold your breath, I really should do it but am feeling lazy. What I also am is very freakin’ sleepy. Crazy cool … Continue reading cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff

so here we go…

…with a new year and all that jazz. i’m not going to post an official “reflections from 2009/new years resolutions for 2010” because honestly, i’m just not into that this year. i have some personal goals for the year that i’ll keep to myself as they are mine to work on. (and one of them is not to start using caps in appropriate places, sorry … Continue reading so here we go…

okie dokie

My hands are super dry and I forgot my lotion today. Am going to have to go bumming for some. Lovely weekend. Finished shopping. Well, make that started and finished shopping. In about 4 hours. At Target. Go me. I approached it guerrilla warfare style. Ambushed the place and got out as fast as possible. Seemed to work great. Excellent strategy if I do say … Continue reading okie dokie
