Year of the Maple

It was so dark this morning, then light came back. In and out, too shiny, just bright enough, darker, lighter, sun and shade alternating. Threat of rain all week. Today it started out wet, and we’ll have more of it. Temperatures were higher last week and lower this week. Humidity is up, but not all…

Ribbon Cloves Sachet

I made this from what I had on hand, the widest translucent ribbon I had, tiny, just not exceptionally tiny. I overlapped the two edges and back-stitched them together for the middle seam. Then I reinforced the middle of the ribbon back-stitching horizontally to act as a bottom, folded the ribbon there, and started to…

Spring, Spring, GO AWAY!

It all comes down to … itchy eyes, and the whole drama that is called “allergies” … I’m so tired of it, dealing with issues every day, but so much worse in Spring these last several years, and it’s starting to ramp up already, crying only makes it worse. 🙁

Eight Years Ago today we had snow

It doesn’t snow every Winter in Georgia. Eight years ago, March 1, 2009 we had snow. I remember how this picture came to be. My dear husband doesn’t like snow. I asked him to go out and act as if he was enjoying it. (I reworked the photo shape and added text for this post.…

Hot July Summer

It’s hot again lately. Not so hot this whole warmer season until the last week overall. A/C can’t keep up. Too warm upstairs, even too hot later in the day. Catch up occurs at night. I have a Sharp portable unit that can do A/C, Dehumidify and ION functions, it’s been sitting un-used for a…

Autumn seems to have arrived

For the last week it’s been not as summer-like. It’s like the VWOMP! that is summer heat has just vanished. Into the 80’s is just bearable now, whereas in Summer proper, it’s overwhelming above 72 degrees F. So all temperatures are so-so at worst now. In The South it’s not generally like this until into September…

Wikipedia is blacked out for 24 hours today

I support their move. It’s hard on us though. Just bit me. I knew about it ahead too. But it’s a truth universally acknowledged, show people how bad something could be, and they will finally believe it. I do applaud their blackout on January 18, 2012. Every Category in this blog system is applied to…

Why?

It’s that time again, Fall Allergies are totally whopping me. It was a couple of weeks or three ago that I and my eldest noticed effects ramping up, so we started taking the one-a-day Aller-tec (from Costco) which we had used previously in the Spring (2011.) Not long after the first ingested pill it is…
