Happy last day of February!!! Tomorrow is MARCH! That means the bulbs will start coming up soon! It also means…we’ll probably get a blizzard, because we always seem to get huge blizzards in March. But no matter – March is here, and that’s all I care about! Despite being cold, gray, and dead, we did manage to get a few things done this month. My … Continue reading February, Wrapped Up With a Bow
So I like to garden. What OF it, yo? Our neighbors don’t garden. They look at me funny when I’m edging the front lawn….or planting a hundred bulbs…or inspecting my plants every afternoon. My husband looks at me funny too. But he still helps out I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I have an “uncool” hobby to most people, and that I’m a somewhat … Continue reading Just Call Me Ethel
I have a little problem. You may recall that the neighbors’ trampoline is right next to our shared fence. Their kids are out there all the time.

Um, no. But…I do have a little “trick” (if you can call it that) for cleaning our hard floors, though, so I thought I’d share. I used to … Continue reading The non-swiffer Swiffer: A Quick Tip
I’m sick of February. The countdown is on for the end of February…and then it will be on again until about March 10th, when I expect to see some bulbs pushing up out of the faded mulch. But until then, I felt like a change, and the buffet was the perfect spot for it. I started with some dish towels. These aren’t just *any* dish … Continue reading Decorating with Dish Towels
Just to demonstrate how flexible I can be… Over the next couple of days, if you haven’t already noticed anything different, you will! This blog has a new, (better) name, and a new, rockin’ web address. And the best part is, all the feeds, links, and everything else *should* still work perfectly (though it may take a day or two to iron out any kinks.) … Continue reading Ch-Ch-Changes!
