The One Grammy Made

We are having a Granddaughter.  We are quite excited!  This little baby girl, like her big brother, THE Grandson, will not have any shortage of special blankets and quilts made for them with great love by their Mamma, their Grandma and their Grammy.  I’ve seen THE Grandson go to sleep with 3 blankets, one made by […]

Unfold The Map

There are certain times in one’s life, where quitting is just not an option.  When the garden hose attached with the sewer unplugger is stuck in the waste pipe one is trying to unstick…yes, that would be just one of those times.  My Loving Spouse crawls under the house.  My instructions are to jam the […]

Filling My Cup

One of the best parts of living in Ellensburg, is that Seattle, the big city, is just over the hill.  I can go visit it, if I want to and get reacquainted with what traffic really looks like, get a Chinese foot massage (which I highly recommend), visit a new cutting edge (pun intended) surgeon for […]

Naming Animals

We take our naming of animals fairly seriously around here.  If you let kids/children/people under 13 get involved, they might not take it quite as seriously as we do.  However, it does add for some interesting humor in life. The Old Ren Hen went broody.  She was determined to sit on her clutch of eggs […]

Buffer to Bridge

When I said we could take the kids for a few weeks, I had no idea the ultimate cost.  I had this very small vision, which showed Z being able to go to 5th grade camp, 5th grade activities and finishing the year at school with the rest of the class.  As chaos ensued, I often […]

Sacramento Time

Leaving California meant leaving My Little Sister and her family behind.  We did not live near one another, but the route from LA to Sacramento was a quick and easy journey.  We saw each other often and as My Nephew E has no grandparents, we (My Loving Spouse and I) try to step up the […]

South Hill Spring Break

As My Loving Spouse and I loaded up for a few days with The Number Ones, I felt like real ‘farmers’ as we brought them: 18 fresh eggs pound of bacon a ham a can of Spanish peanuts (not because we grow peanuts, but because My Loving Spouse accidentally bought them and no one here […]

The Wood

The time finally came to unload our ‘free’ wood.  (The ‘free’ wood that we’d set out to collect, which led to My Loving Spouse’s accident.) The ‘free’ wood had been loaded into our horse trailer.  The ‘free’ wood was so heavy, that My Loving Spouse had trouble getting the trailer unhooked from the truck.  The only […]

THE Sewing Scissors

As they neared the end of their life, my Mom and Dad did their best to divide up their ‘stuff’ as fairly as they could between 6 kids.  They had a plan (which was good, as it was their stuff).  To be honest, the few times we siblings had to get together and ‘pick’ items […]
