Best Husband Ever

Woke up this morning to hear Tiller singing 12 verses of her original song, “Whole World Friends.” Then Todd whispered that he was taking the kids to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast (kind of a ritual for Todd and the kids on Saturday mornings) and then they were going on to Lowe’s for their free kids’ […]

What are you going to be?

Tiller and I were sitting on the love toilets this afternoon. (That’s what we call our Jack and Jill toilets, right by each other, but separated by a door. You can hold hands while taking a poo. Love toilets.) Me: “What ya been doing?” T: “I’m playing doctor with Snoopy.” Me: “Are you going to […]

Good Day Sunshine

Woke up yesterday with a slight headache, but once I had lunch I felt fine. Spent the whole day outside with the family. Todd (finally) put up my Bulldog bird feeder. I moved Eddie Rabbit back to the edge of the treeline in the backyard, so that he will peek out at us on the […]

Rollie Looks Into a Wardrobe (with Lucy, of Course)

Last night, Rollie chose a kids’ version of one of the Narnia Chronicles (the kids’ books are called “World of Narnia”) for Todd to read to him and Tiller. It is called Aslan, and Todd just said that it was “very abridged.” After school, I let Rollie play some xBox, since it is friday, and […]

My Free Stuff Haul

I dropped Tills off at school last Friday, and it was supposed to snow that afternoon, and it was colder than a well-digger’s you-know-what, […]

At the Birdfeeder

The 80’s Comb

You thought this was going to be some fun post about 80s hairstyles [Robin, I'm lookin' at you], and oh, are you going to be disappointed. It’s a post about a comb. From the 80s. No, I am not kidding you. See, we were talking about 80s stuff at a girls’ night recently, and somehow […]

Bedtime Cheer: Discussions of Aging and Death

I tucked Tiller in the other night, then went into tuck Rollie in. He was reading a book, with it propped on his legs, and with a pillow behind his head. “Night baby,” i said. “Night, mama.” I kissed him on the head and got a little choked up, thinking about putting him down as […]

Homemade Suet Recipe

I’m making Walter Reeves’ recipe for homemade suet for my winged friends. Don’t want them going hungry in the snow, and i love the variety of birds a suet feeder gives me. He also has a neat idea for making your own feeder. Not going to undertake that today. . . .
