A book we read had a little owl who needed a "wingchair" but the family couldn't afford it and I for one really love realistic kids books like this.

  My little reluctant reader has discovered The Owl Diaries series and we’ve been reading nothing but lately. They’re cute little chapter books featuring a little owl named Eva and her daily life in the treetops. In book 7 , one of Eva’s classmates has a…

I think Lovett or Leave It is generally relevant to "us folks' " interests here but this latest episode focuses particularly on economic inequality. I'm also going to forever side with Franchesca Ramsey on those Paul Ryan workout pics

Yay, we've almost reached that $4,000 deductible. throws confetti lazily

Hi! I'm all moved. I've either been unpacking or sick the past month. Still unpacking. Not sick,though! Woot.

This post is brought to you by running water,central heating, and clean laundry done in my own washing machine! And that smells like clean laundry and not wood smoke. A screenshot of a vid I posted on IG since wordpress says I’m not endowed with those…

Trying to move to a house with a working kitchen. This is the terrible plan I've come up with.

[image via Google… from Etsy probably. I don’t know the person who made it but they didn’t attribute the quote to being from a song so I don’t feel that bad about not crediting them) Flashback to 90’s country when Doug Stone sang about tiny houses being…

It's a food thing but also I talk a lot about the nightmare that "bomb cyclone" brought upon us. Running water is amazing. Never take it for granted.

I know that the weather event known as the bomb cyclone, or cyclogenesis, was ages (two weeks. Same thing) ago but I’m still dealing with the fallout. That fallout is also why I didn’t blog this recipe when I made it 2 weeks ago instead of now. Bomb…
