46 for 46

Today is my 46th birthday. I decided to tell you 46 random things in honor of my 46th birthday. If you go to Zingerman’s on your birthday, you can get 6 free bagels. Their bagels are delicious. I’m eating my third bagel today. That makes me feel kind of like a pig, but I only …

Spring

I was going to write about how I haven’t had enough energy to do anything lately because my migraines have been wretched, and how I’m trying an elimination diet (eliminating pretty much everything from my diet that might be a migraine trigger — garlic, onions, grapes, berries, dried fruit, soy, yeast, refined sugar, black beans, …

Business = busyness

No, I didn’t forget about you guys.  I’ve been really busy getting stuff ready to send to Susan for the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, which is next weekend (if you’re in the area, check it out!).  I’ve been dyeing yarn and fiber and making jewelry, and I didn’t get as much done as I …

The Plantiness

It’s finally been warm enough to work in my garden.  It’s really spring!  Yay!  (Am I the only one who pictures Kermit the Frog waving his arms around whenever I say “Yay!”?) My hellebores are blooming. I think they’re so gorgeous.  And the pulmonaria is just starting to bloom. The flowers are a little blurry …

It’s random thought day here at Acme Acres in Happy Fuzzy Land.  Time to just spill my brain onto my keyboard… 1. Bifocals, schmifocals.  I gave up.  I tried getting used to the bifocals, I really did, but in reality I just got used to things being blurry when I looked in certain directions.  I …

Wow, a new year already, huh?

I’ve actually been meaning to write for a couple of weeks, but I’ve been so busy doing stuff, I haven’t had time to write about it.  Some people are able to make time for both, and I envy them, but my brain doesn’t seem to be constructed that way.  And so, of course, the more …

I am thankful

A while ago Jennifer suggested writing a gratitude list with at least 100 things you’re grateful for.  I liked that idea, so here, now on Thanksgiving, is my list. I am thankful… that I have a roof over my head. that I have clean running water. that I have a working furnace. that I have …

Blog Action Day 2008

As some of you may remember, I wrote a post for Blog Action Day last year when the theme was the Environment.  That was easy.  I had a lot to say about that.  This year they emailed me to tell me the theme was Poverty.  I had to think a bit.  Did I have something …

Don’t pet the bees

Every time I see the bumblebees in my garden, I think they look so cute and fuzzy, I just want to pet them.  But that would be bad.  They wouldn’t like that. So I just admire them.  I have no idea how many of them I have in my garden.  Dozens, at least.  Probably well …
