photo-a-day 29-31

I made it to the end of the month! I didn’t do so great at posting regularly, though, so I’m waffling on the February list. Here are the last three entries for the month. 29: Window Papa loves sitting on this bench and watching the birdies. It’s also a prime sunbathing spot. 30: Best invention … Continue reading

photo-a-day: 12-19

Sorry for lumping an entire week together. It was a hard week and the days got away from me. Without further ado, let’s get to the good stuff. 12: Colorful Few things in the world make me smile like flowers. During this week’s Target run, I couldn’t resist these roses. Can’t remember the last time … Continue reading

house highlight: the fireplace

house highlight: the fireplace

It’s no secret that I love wood-burning fireplaces. My parents have one and it has always been one of my favorite things about their house. So when we started looking at houses, a fireplace was on the list. Iowa gets cold in the winter–below zero, with dangerous wind chills and a long, long winter season. … Continue reading

6. Happens everyday At the Munt house, we make the bed every day. I always had to as a kid and the habit has stuck in adulthood. There’s just something so satisfying about crawling into a nicely made bed every night. 7. Upside down Mr. Phish had Friday off, and he was kind enough to … Continue reading

Instead of posting a photo every day, I’m going to post my photo-a-day pictures in chunks. I’ll try to keep the narrative to a minimum and let the photos speak for themselves. But you know I love to tell a good story… 1. Lunch Leftover barbecue chicken flatbread pizza. Delish. And a cherry Icee. Icees … Continue reading

our year in review: 2013

I’ve managed to repair some of the damage done to my blog, restoring photos for most of last year. The greater loss is from 2012, during which I was much more diligent at blogging. As I was reuploading photos, I found some wonderful reminders of the trials and triumphs of 2013. In January, we traveled … Continue reading

flooring: the after

flooring: the after

To see how far we’ve already come, check out flooring: the before and flooring: the during. I’ve decided to save the real after photos for later (once I have the house put back together, ahem). So here’s the last bit of the story. I came home from work on Tuesday with butterflies in my stomach. … Continue reading

drat.

The other day, I noticed that I was using something like 97% of my allotted storage space on WordPress. So in an attempt to be efficient, I dutifully deleted nine bazillion photos yesterday. I did not, however, realize that deleting the photos means they vanish from every single blessed post, leaving me with lots of … Continue reading

happy new year

happy new year

Happy new year! I’m working on a year in review post, a la my friend, Madelaine. In the meantime, here are a few shots of NYE at Casa de Munt. I narrowly edged out Mr. Phish in Scrabble, thanks largely to playing “equips” on my third turn (the Q was on a triple letter score!). … Continue reading
