hop on the meal train!

My sister is having a baby, like, any minute now. Her actual due date is just under two weeks away, but no one really thinks she’ll make it. Moo was one week early, and I think Tater will be early, too. You read right: her nickname is Tater. Don’t ask. Obviously, I am SO SUPER … Continue reading

sleepy saturday

Let’s call this post “Napping: A study in contrasts.” Bella will sleep anywhere–on the couch, on the bed, in the middle of the floor. She avoids kitty beds but has been known to curl up in a random basket. Regardless, she always sleeps with one eye open. Watchfulness is required when you are in charge. … Continue reading

bird watching

One of (many) reasons I love the weekend is the opportunity to enjoy the flurry of activity at our bird feeders. This weekend’s birdwatching did not disappoint. The boogies and I spotted the usual suspects: My favorite visitor made numerous appearances: I adore chickadees. They are so tiny and they dart from point to point … Continue reading

beaver fever!

beaver fever!

In February, my little bro turned 30. I struggled with this because a) In my mind, he is perpetually 26. I blame the flawless olive skin and the sparkly brown eyes (neither of which I was blessed with, thankyouverymuch); and b) If the baby of the family is 30, then that makes me, the oldest … Continue reading

sweet rain

It has rained all day today. A wonderful, slow, soaking rain. For hours. I love me some thunderstorms. Especially when it’s too cool for nasty weather and I can just enjoy the white flash of lightning followed by the rumbling thunder. Love. It was chilly and gray and gloomy today. And after 12 hours of … Continue reading

Moo is a little bit obsessed with The Little Mermaid. She watches it at Grandma’s house, every time she visits. For Easter, one of the things in her Easter basket was her very own DVD copy of The Little Mermaid. She was speechless. She stared and stared at the DVD. She kept asking my sister, … Continue reading

This Easter, Miss Moo was pumped to hunt eggs. She practiced almost every day the week leading up to Easter, and she cleaned up at several egg hunts at day care and friends’ houses. Easter morning, we all got up with the sun and went to church. After church, we headed out to my parents’ … Continue reading

a sign of spring

This little guy is probably six inches taller after today’s 70-degree sunshine. I have to apologize for the inconsistent posting. After 9 hours staring at a computer at work, I’m struggling to find the oomph to come home and stare at a computer for another hour or two. Thanks for reading!

alfie goes rogue

Last night, as I was doing the dishes, I heard a loud thunk. I looked up, thinking perhaps a bird had hit the sliding glass door. I walked over to see what was going on and found a very intense Mooster. I went back to doing the dishes, and I heard the same loud thunk. … Continue reading
