Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

Fresh, Dry and Warm

What could I be describing? Bath towels! Brand new ones to be precise. You know you’re getting old when bath towels excite you… While looking around the house, we noticed the ragtag assortment of hand towels, bath towels and face towels, all in an assortment of black, grey, pink and red. Lovely. We had toContinue reading “Fresh, Dry and Warm”

1st Comfort for Critters Complete

Well, it might be a tad narrow and the pattern certainly is messed up, but hopefully the kitties and puppies won’t mind. I can assure you that it is still very fluffy! So it should be comfortable for them to sleep with. I plan on making a few more and maybe will try the sameContinue reading “1st Comfort for Critters Complete”

Party in the Driveway

The last time I hung out with someone was close to Halloween! It is crazy to think about how long we’ve been in isolation. I am lucky to have friends who are just as cautious as I am, which puts my anxiety at ease over COVID. Our friends sit across from us on the driveway,Continue reading “Party in the Driveway”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

Firewood Without the Fire Pit

Over the weekend the hubby and I got out the saw and we cut up some fallen tree limbs to burn. We were so excited to use the wood ( and dry out the furniture), that we ended up breaking the chiminea (ceramic fire pit)! As we started to move the fire pit, it justContinue reading “Firewood Without the Fire Pit”

What a relief!

On Sunday, the sun came out. It was a beautiful 75 degrees! It was a huge relief to be back to the weather we know and love. Of course Texas still has a long way to go before getting back to normal and recovering from the storm, but it is a huge step in theContinue reading “What a relief!”

My First Scarf

I am Soo thrilled to show off my very first scarf! I recently took up knitting again after several unsuccessful attempts over the years. It’s a big ol’ heavy and thick scarf that is totally unnecessary for Texas 😂 but I love it all the same and will try to find some uses for it.Continue reading “My First Scarf”

Indoor/Semi-outdoor

Max has been an indoor cat all his life. We started our journey together in New York City, where there was no way I was going to let him outside. The mean streets of NYC can be mean and I’m a neurotic momma. He’s moved with me three times in NYC, a stopover at myContinue reading “Indoor/Semi-outdoor”

Flip flops

I feel very lucky that on a late December day, almost January, I am able to sit outside in flip flops and a tshirt. I believe it is one of the great joys in life. Sit down outside, soak up the sun and fresh air, and drink a coffee. I know a lot of peopleContinue reading “Flip flops”
