Blue Pillow Seat (1)

I’ve really come to love the “freedom movement” that I’ve been immersed in recently – good vibes, balanced body, enjoy the wonders of nature – and I’ve gotten a little addicted to the things at a store called Earthbound Trading Co.  They have a large, ever-changing variety of things and they recently got some new…

If You Had Said…

Another long absence from posting, but I have been busy once more, doing something I haven’t really done in a long time. Being happy. Moving to the big city was an exciting move, but venturing out from my comfort zone left me with anxious ups and depressed downs.  When I worked at the craft store…

Absent Because…

Sorry I’ve been so long writing, but we had a bit of a change in our lives recently.  Two weeks ago, we picked up two precious little ferret babies! We both chose one from the lot that had the personalities we wanted.  Rys wanted a more playful one and I wanted a quieter one.  We…

Plight of the Futon

So we got a futon.  It’s for Rysa’s mother, whom we’re trying to get to move up here near us, so she has somewhere better to sleep and eventually a couch.  It was supposed to be delivered Thursday before she came up Saturday (today), but the deliveryman didn’t wait for us to answer (between washing…

I’ve “made curtains” before (they were super ugly and ragged), but…

How My Garden Grows

It’s been a while since I posted about my garden, but it’s getting up there!  Potato sprouts, iris, lillies, bee balm, lavender, they’re all doing surprisingly well. Rysa’s father made her mother some cinderblock planters that I really loved, so I’m trying to make one of my own in the back.  So far, I don’t…

Project: Her Mother’s Afghan (1)

I’ve actually been working on this one a little while now, but I guess I never posted it.  Rysa’s mother came to visit and decided she really liked sleeping with Rysa’s obnoxious afghan, so she wanted one of her own.  It’s costing more than she expected (lol), but I’m on the last quarter or so…
