    My Dream Garden

    April 1st, 2011 Shawna

    On my way to work this morning I was day dreaming (not recommended while driving) about moving to a place with a HUGE yard and all the things I would like to do with it.

    The 10 Day Challenge

    July 23rd, 2010 admin

One of which is keeping loose change in my pockets which eventually spills out of my pockets and ends up in couch cushions, in the laundry basket, occasionally on the floor or in the car. My partner feels entitled to any change found so I often end up without change [...]

    Summer

    May 26th, 2010 admin

    I can’t believe summer is coming up so soon. During the summer, our apartment transforms from a place where we keep the windows closed, eat soups frequently and have piles of library books readily available to something completely different. This is the time of the year that I enjoy keeping fresh cut flowers in the living [...]

    Spring 2010

    March 11th, 2010 admin

    In case you didn’t know, March 21 is considered by many to be the first day of spring. Some say it is really the middle of spring, because of the position of the sun, but I don’t think spring is quite here yet in the Pacific Northwest. I am very ready for winter to end. [...]

    Tea Totaller

    June 23rd, 2008 admin

    I used to love having tea parties when I was a kid, and I can clearly remember one time when my grandmother discovered that I had been using the same tea bag over & over for weeks. She asked me where I had been keeping it and I told her in the teabox. “Could you [...]
