Our Furry Kids Knew That Mama Was In Pain


A while back, Lisa scheduled a long weekend. This weekend. However. A week or so ago, one of her back teeth cracked. It got infected. The side of her face was swollen. People at her work noticed. Eventually, she took an antibiotic for the infection. I made lots of scrumptious soft foods for her to eat. But. She was still in a lot of pain.

Support Your Local Farmers And Orchards And Farmer's Markets


Not too long ago, I published a blog column about making your own takeout food. At home. This is something we have been doing for a while now. Because. Well. Takeout food prices have skyrocketed. Not only that, the quality has spiraled downward and the portions have gotten a lot smaller.

This Is The Only Bug Killer You Will Ever Need

I posted this photo back in September of 2020 on my personal Facebook wall. At the time, I was desperate for an all-natural, pet-friendly bug killer because I hate nuisance bugs. As in, the ones that exist for the sole purpose of simply being an asshole. The ones that fly, sting, or stink. Occasionally, they get on our screened-in back porch or in the house.

If You Want Great Takeout Food, Make It Yourself.


A couple of years ago, our state was almost completely shut down because of COVID-19. That included local restaurants. To an extent. Indoor dining wasn't allowed, however, curbside service and takeout were. Some restaurants were fortunate enough to offer make-shift outdoor dining. As time went on, indoor dining slowly reopened, but there were lengthy restrictions.

It Took A Couple Of Years, But We Did It...


When we bought our house in February of 2020, this is what the front yard looked like. A single tree and a bush of some sort that had overgrown into a tree.

Heading In The Right Direction


It has been well over a month since I last published a blog column. I'm not proud of that. Things have been sort of messy. I'm not referring to my life in general. On the homefront, everything is in check. Balanced. Steady. Content. We have been continuously getting projects done inside and outside of the house we bought over 2 years ago. Our kids are healthy and happy. What's messy is the stuff going on in my brain.
