If I had a dandelion, I would make a wish.

You know what I wish? Well, they may be simple, silly wishes but I have decided I have these few wishes that have been stewing in my brain for a few months. 1. I wish I was better at getting out of bed and ready in the morning. I sleep like the dead, so getting up in the morning is a terrible chore. I really want to be that person who is up at dawn and ready for the day…

Plants, plants, and more plants…..

Plants, plants, and more plants…..

Oh dear! Yesterday was such a full, busy, tiring day! We had lovely breakfast burritos for breakfast then went to Flower World in Snohomish. I wanted to go there because they had the best selection of succulents the last time we were there. I did not like the ones from Home Depot or QFC when we were there the last time. I picked up some little glass orbs from World Market for the previous succulents I had acquired.  At Flower…

Misadventures of Toothless River

Misadventures of Toothless River

Well, recently River has been a whole new type of kitten (being a 2-year-old one). She has been friendly, dealing with my antics, and (as shown below) even lets me put hats on her. She does steal my chair and make me sit awkwardly side ways next to her…. because seriously, who is gonna move a cat off the chair! That would just be too easy.   The cats have greatly enjoyed their new playground – the backyard. Badger is…

July 4th with my Brit!!

Well, my lovely Brit and I had an amazing July 4th. We spent the majority of it doing yard work! Hahahaha, we got an amazing mower! Battery powered, isn’t took loud, and still works great!! Look at it! We were able to get all the grass mowed and then replanted our honeysuckle and some Sweet Williams. Of course there was a Home Depot trip in the middle. Mark and I had some delicious homemade ham and swiss croissants this morning…

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday.

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday.

*exhausted* Mark and I are simply exhausted. We annihilated the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, and downstairs rooms…. I cleaned all the kitchen cabinets and the fridge/freezer. We packed so MANY boxes. Mark OCD’ed all over the boxes. We lost a few of our items today though!! We found GROSS mold all along the down stairs closet so we lost some good paintings and decorations 🙁 And maybe destroyed our lungs in the process.   Look at all that grossness!! AH! Also,…
