Saturday Night!

When we aren't out to dinner...our fave Saturday night goes down like this...we are comfy clothes...kitties are fed and happy...we have drinks in hand...dinner is simple...yummy bun...and a simple salad...because...we are having Molly's Mixed Berry Pie for dessert...everything in the pie is locally sourced and organically raised...her crumble crust is amazing! And...she uses coconut oil for the my mind this pie is almost health food! Right?

A yummy vodka rocks with olives...

Sleepy kitties...
Have a good one!

It's A Pounding Kind Of Day!

People have been pounding on our house since 7:00 this morning! I think I have a headache and the girls are a little freaked out, too! This house has 6 doors and today two of them are being replaced for the second time! Also security lights on the highest part of the house are being changed out so that pounding is literally in my head...


Lucy and Roxie are sticking close to me and we are all stationed upstairs...the scariest replacement is the door near the laundry room because Roxie could potentially walk right as long as I stay upstairs they will stay with me.


Den just brought them lunch upstairs...are my kitties high maintenance? OMG! These are their worried faces! My babies!

Finishing these...I am not in a reading mood today...I wonder why?
Den does not understand all...he has been gone all week long and he schedules this work for we are trapped here! I can't even get out of the driveway...sigh...the deck and laundry room are a we have clean up to do later...double sigh...this is not a fun Friday!
With that said...have a good one! I am not having a good one!

Thursday's Thingamajigs!

Den has been gone all week...he just got in about an hour ago. Thank goodness! I am exhausted! It's amazing how many daily house chores it takes to maintain our lives. Den does coffee...Den makes breakfast...Den wakes up to feed the cats while I stay in bed pretending to sleep. So...for four days this week...the girls had to wait for me to wake up enough to give them breakfast...there were fed an hour and a half later every day this week...they were not too happy! They were outraged that they didn't get back to their after breakfast nap until much later! I am exhausted! Lol...I am teasing...we share all jobs but I feel it when he is gone...I had to do everything! Even litter! I even had to make my own coffee! Lol...again...teasing!

Just a few thingamajigs...I love this word...this slouchy dress is from NastyGal...
As is this slouchy bag, too...
From FreePeople...I think I am the Queen Of All Things Slouchy!
I embrace the slouch!
Books...reading this...
Food...these amazing dishes are from Damn Delicious. This blogger has the best recipes!
That's it for thingamajigs!
I am outa here!

Day Three...Of Rain!


It is amazing that we have had so many rainy days in a row...the decks are wet...everything is wet and it is so much cooler...I had to turn the girls' beds on last night! They needed heat! The upside is that everything outside Is so green! It's amazing! It's lush and vibrant and the hydrangeas have big almost ready to bloom blossoms! hydrangeas!


When my sister was here we would sit in the sunroom and talk while we colored in my grown up coloring books and she commented on the fact that when I do something I tend to go all in...I think she was talking about the pots and pots of colored pencils and the stacks of coloring books...sigh! But...when you start to color you realize that you need different pencils for different kinds of coloring. Light and dark and fine and medium...who knew? Plus I have finally found an activity to keep me busy while I wait for things...water boiling...pasta cooking...etc! I color!

And I get bored with the same books...and I love books like this! You really don't have to think about relaxing!

Reading this...
The rest of the day I think I will read and color and vacuum and wait for the sun!
Good Day, Sunshine!
Catch you later!

My Plan...Is No Plan!

It has been raining and pouring for most of the night...and now it's just very gloomy out there...Lucy needs a cold laser treatment for her little tiny arthritic knees but I think we will do it tomorrow. It's much cooler here, too. Den is gone again today so the three of us are snuggled in bed with books, coffee, yogurt and iPads...Roxie already ate everything left in my container...I put it down for a second and whoosh! Eaten! Everyone is content and I am trapped. I could not get out of bed if I tried. No more coffee for me!

Roxie is under the bump in the bed and Lucy won't let her leave!

Finished this yesterday...sweet, cakey and really good. Small town stuff that was really endearing plus an old all comes together at the end but now I want a cupcake with buttercream icing!
Finished this yesterday, too, sadly I did not like it and I used to love reading books by this author. I think I need to avoid books that say they are funny...Stella...main too much for me!
Now reading thoughts yet...but it has the potential to make me's about a boy with ALS and sadly two members in my family...on my mom's side...a cousin...and on my dad's Aunt Jennie...died from this disease. It makes my family sad and scared sometimes.
Thinking about how I want to go out and play with my flowers...I want to deadhead and plant more and assess...I have a garden in pots in the back under the deck...tomatoes and peppers and herbs! It's too wet to see what is going on with them. The hydrangeas look as though they are ready to blossom!
There are ducks and geese, too, quacking under the deck. Den feeds them and he didn't this morning! I need to find my Wellies and feed them soon!
Regular ducks and wood ducks, too!

Just A Sunday Pop Up!

Nothing better than sitting in the family room on a lazy Sunday afternoon reading this...I think I will be finished with it later today. It's hot and hazy...92 in the sun!

Everyone here is very laid back and lazy today!
Totally hooked on this tea...I can't make it this good!
We are having TV dinners tonight! Den has to leave early in the morning and we don't want to I still haven't driven my car...sigh! Life is complicated! When I was little if we had TV dinners we had chocolate pudding later...but we are having frozen fruit bars!
Happy Sunday!
