Happy May Day plus an extra day in May! I think. I won’t keep you. It’s Thursday, and the rain has paused just long enough for me to get outside and get some garden ish in the ground and my window boxes pimped and the HONEYSUCKLE VINE planted (I got a honeysuckle vine! Aren’t you […]

April! About. frickin’. time. Not that I’m trying to wish life away. My jowls are squeezing the reins of time continuum like DUUUUUUUUDE CHIIIIILL. But the rest of me is super pumped to see April.

Happy early 4th! Fourth? Forth. FARTH. Just kidding. We’re BACK. We’re home. And surprisingly, it feels really, really good. We didn’t know what to expect when we walked into our beloved little ranch house after a full month of being away. Of course it smelled stale, it was hot and sticky, and a few pepper […]
