Too Busy

I very much don’t like having too much to do. I also think my threshold for that is lower than a lot of people’s. I’m trying to figure out what activity from which to extricate myself – sadly, it can’t be litter boxes.


It’s the rainy mornings when I appreciate homeschooling the most. Not having to get out and suffer the car rider line is a personal blessing. If you are also lingering over your coffee (because your child is still in bed), here’s a lol for you: A Glossary of School Terms for Homeschoolers


Quick tip: If you live in a super old house and you want to add insulation to the attic, know that there will be coal soot. Everywhere. There’s a thin layer of coal soot coating everything upstairs (and a thicker layer on the floor). I will be wiping and mopping for the rest of my […]


One of the things we discovered AFTER we moved in (and you’d think the inspector would have mentioned it), is that there is precious little insulation in the attic. And none on the walls around the cubby space in the attic. That’s getting fixed today. They are also installing gable fans that turn on when […]

Nap Time

William Henry loves all things pink and little girl. He has napped in all of Ellie’s pinkest and foofiest things since we had pink and foofy things for her. 3/7

Yard Work

I’ll make up missing last week by posting each and every day this week. Because that’s totally the same. Yesterday, we had all of the GIANT boxwood and holly removed from around the house. These plants had to be 60 years old – they were overtaking the house. 2 of 7

I blew it.

Aw man. After 8 months of once a week posts I forgot last week. I don’t know what happened. It’s not that I never thought about it, I just forgot. Boo, me. Here’s a rabbit head.


Tuscumbia experienced 95% totality in today’s solar eclipse. We moseyed down to the park to watch it with the rest of town. Sadly, all the commemorative t-shirts were sold out long before we got there. They had planned a light show (the park’s fountain dances and lights up – they do a show each night), […]

New Rug

I’ve been adding small rugs every now and then to see how the cats feel about them. I’m experimenting with the small ones before I invest in large ones (to see what kind hold up best with all the claws). The cardboard box in the dining room is Ellie’s souvenir of the new air conditioner. […]

Extra Special Election

Alabama’s Special Election Primary is today. In case you haven’t been keeping up, we’re voting on candidates to fill Attorney General Sessions’ seat and finish his term. Ellie and I strolled across the street to do our Civic Duty. It was lonely in there. It looked like mine was the fourth name on the voter […]

Rainy Morning

I like rainy mornings best when I don’t have to be anywhere. Paws in my coffee.


I’ve not got the vocabulary for this much disgrace. I’ve been thinking a lot about how hate is something that is taught.

So Blue

Ellie and I got hair cuts this week. Ellie also had her ends dyed blue. It’s subtle but it’s there. haha We think pink next time.

Part of Your World

We took a road trip up to Nashville to see The Little Mermaid! We somehow managed to get the last three tickets available for this sold out show (we only just discovered the Nashville Performing Arts Center’s calendar a week ago). Our seats were in the middle of the very very last row of the […]

Cats Put Their Feet on Everything

Cats have been messing with whatever their people are working on for centuries. There’s actual physical evidence.

Members Only

The day we closed on the house, we walked across the street to become members of the Tennessee Valley Art Association. Because how cool is it to have an art museum for a neighbor? (seriously cool in case you don’t know) Every year they host a Member show where TVAA members submit their work to […]
