We’ve been working on our backyard on and off for three years. Part of the delay was the pandemic, of course, but there has also been triple digit temperatures, lack of time, laziness and procrastination.Continue reading “O is for Oasis”

Snake got me a new set of gloves for a New Year’s gift….Continue reading “P is for Prickly”
I wrote last week about the upcoming wedding and thought I’d do a brief update.Continue reading “N is for Newlyweds”
I am impulsive. I usually use the term spontaneous because it sounds more fun and less chaotic, but there’s a reason why I can’t play any DnD character who isn’t chaotic.Continue reading “I is for Impulsive”
This is Part 2, his perspective. Be sure to read part 1, here.
The day was another one – just seemingly on top of all of the others, so much to do, so much that seems important, but the at the end of the day, it’s just a blur of frustration and aggravation that led to too few things getting actually done. So many calls. So many emails.Continue reading “D is for DnD”
I’m going to let you in on a little secret–Snake loves strawberries. Well, most fruit. He also has a fondness for mandarin oranges (Clementines or Cuties) and green frozen grapes.Continue reading “S is for Strawberry”
While I could enumerate a lot of silly bad habits like biting my nails when I am really stressed or procrastination or whatever, those aren’t my real bad habit.Continue reading “H is for (Bad) Habits”
It is winter–even if it doesn’t feel like it here–so I thought I’d try for a bit of an icy feel to this picture.Continue reading “I is for Icy”
I saw this today while I was looking for inspiration and thought it was perfect for a fresh start.
Even during the best of times, it feels like we always need to slow down and take a break. Sometimes with friends and sometimes alone, but we need to catch our breath, relax and refresh ourselves.
So today, try to take a few minutes to treat yourself and maybe reconnect with a friend or with yourself, have a coffee or tea and just be.
Even under the best of circumstances, I don’t make resolutions or big plans for a new year. Yes, we’ll plan vacations or something like that, but we don’t tend to resolve to do x or y.Continue reading “A is for Adventures”
As usual, I went looking for a quote to use for this post. What I found is that a lot of the “new beginning” quotes just don’t feel quite right this year.Continue reading “W is for Wedding”
Bree closed the top of the suitcase and zipped it up, patting it and turning to Gabe. “This is the last one.”Continue reading “D is for (the) Drive”
2020 is past and I don’t imagine most of us will miss it. For my first post of 2021, and the first one of the fresh start prompt, I thought I’d share my morning fresh start.Continue reading “O is for Out With the Old”
“We could go see the boobs again,” I say laughing.Continue reading “T is for Tetons”
December 31st–the celebrations will be different this year. Smaller and with the memories of 2020 still in the front of our minds.Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #12 — N is for New Year”
I think everyone will agree that we are ready for 2020 to actually be hindsight… that was Snake’s punny last week ❤Continue reading “J is for January Prompt”
A little red, a little vignette, a little soften…Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #11 — E is for Edits”
Another Christmas is done. And while normally I would go out shopping for wrapping paper and bows and ribbon, this year will be different. No being crazy getting into unnecessary crowds for a bargain.Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #10 — A is for After”
Nothing is more fun than taking in the sights of the lights on the Christmas tree…in lingerie, of course!Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #9 — B is for Burst”
I rarely wear stockings. I think most of that comes from living in a place where it is hot 3/4 of the year. It is hard to want to put on stockings when it is 105 outside.Continue reading “Bawdy Bell #8 — S is for Stocking(s)”
2020 has been quite a year. No one could have anticipated the changes in the world that would come three months after the year started. And holidays are different for so many people this year.Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #7 — F is for Family”
Trans-Siberian Orchestra is Christmas in the Snake household. Most people have heard Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 even if they don’t know it–it is probably the most used song for synchronizing Christmas lights on houses.Continue reading “Bawdy Bells #6 — T is for TSO”
