My weekend activities

I have been struggling to get the baulisters sanded and painted. I am using Houseworks Centurian Baulisters. I figured that the houseworks wood would be nice and smooth and easy to paint….not so much the case. Here they are after sanding and painting once; Sanded and painted again;   I didn’t seem to have the […]

Two Vacuums…

There are two vacuums sitting outside my bedroom door. I am in bed having my face scratched off by 7 (almost 8!!) month old Makaio as I try (again) to get him to go down for a nap. The toddler is watching Arthur in her underwear eating Kraft Dinner. This is real life people. The […]

Stop Starting with S’s!

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but my last 5 posts have begun with the letter “s”. If you don’t believe me look at the right sidebar at my recent posts. I assure you this was not on purpose, but I found it interesting enough to share. 🙂 I am struggling in the living room […]

Stitching nap time away..

The stairs are getting there! I can’t help myself from peeking in through the front door when I walk by to take a look at my hard work, which I will share with you soon! In between entertaining the littles, I have been working some more on cross stitching. I went back to the rug […]

Stairway to the bedroom, part 2!

Well, it’s amazing what just one night of working to actually finish something does for you. As I have explained, I have theis horrible thing when it comes to crafting/building or whatnot where I can’t actually ever finish anything. I can start it. I can get all the way to the end…but never finished. Even […]

Stairway to the bedroom

As soon as I typed stairway in the post title, I thought of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin . Then I started to sing Hotel California by The Eagles, …..actually just repeating the verse “on that dark desert highway, coooool wind in my haiiir.” — you know the one. Lol. The above (and below) […]

Stairs Sneak Peek!

As I believe I might have mentioned in previous posts, I am an avid user of the Instagram for Android app. I love being able to update pictures for my family and friends (from in real life and not!). The filters that they have  also make the pictures more forgiving of the fact that most […]

Sunday Shopping!

First of all, remember when the Lords Day Act existed? I don’t. I wasn’t alive when it happened. But I remember hearing all about the excitement around town that shopping hours were extended for the whole weekend when it used to be forbidden. I almost felt guilty being out after thinking/remembering this as I was […]

Knitting update!

I finally got a chance to sit with the Orchid for a good stretch. I did a lot of work on the stairs, now they just need to be sanded, painted, and assembled. I also finally made up my mind about wallpaper for each of the rooms. I was thisclose to taping them down when […]

A weeks worth of books…take two!

Well, I’m going to try this again. Stinky WordPress…not impressed. That was a first time experience. It was odd too because as I hit publish, a screen I have never seen before popped up asking me if I was “sure”… I thought I was pretty sure. So I hit ok. Just seems like a waste […]
