Mood Scarf

Mood Scarf

This past week I told Katie about the project I found for us to do together. I figured it out a few weeks ago, but I was finally able to share with her this past week while she (and Matthew) were with us for Christmas. The reason I thought about this project was because of my excitement to do my Temperature Blanket. I have been wanting to find a simple and productive project for Katie and I for a while…

Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Over the weekend I made teriyaki and some homemade digestives. I was happy with all the results. I was nervous about making teriyaki. How the heck was I going to achieve the flavor Mark and I love about teriyaki without coming short. I’ve used teriyaki sauces before, they were disappointing compared to what you get at all the teriyaki places here. I don’t know why. Maybe they use the same thing, but since it comes in the take-out boxes from…

Crochet Temperature Blanket

Crochet Temperature Blanket

This coming year, 2017, I have decided to crochet a temperature blanket. I missed this bandwagon last year and didn’t hear about a temperature blanket until October this year, but I am beyond excited to start mine and finish mine next year. A lot of people I follow on Instagram in my crocheting/knitting community are still working on a Temperature Blanket, and I was inspired by them. My favourite has been Olivesandpickles and her projects. She has given me some…

Stressful “Sundays”

Stressful “Sundays”

Today is my Sunday. I love being productive, active, and industrious. I do not like the typical “Lazy Sunday” that most people seem to greatly enjoy. They stress me out. Take today for example.

Blogging is difficult.

Blogging is difficult.

I find writing down and blogging my ideas, thoughts, aspirations, crafts, creations, and just stuff challenging. Why? I don’t find my interests to be something someone else may be interested in. My life is chaotic, full, and fulfilling. I like the things I do. I have bad and good days. I have things that stress me out and things that bring me joy. However, I just never believe my ideas are good enough to be shared. I love using my…

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

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…

Coming to terms with Endo

Coming to terms with Endo

Endometriosis, I have lived with this disease since I started my period. I have had endo pain since I can remember in my early teen years. I made the mistake of thinking this was normal for women, you know, normal for pain during period and all that. It was terrible, ripping, stabbing, uncontrollable pain that would just wreak havoc on my body monthly and sometimes in between. People told me it was just cramps and you have to deal with…

Crochet Plant Cozies

Crochet Plant Cozies

That is the plant cozy I crocheted before we left for England. I made two not of the same pattern though. I was inspired by all sorts of cozies I found on, what else but, Pinterest. A lot of the pictures were cute so I decided to give it a try. It is simply covering the generic black pot you find on IKEA fake plants. I have a lot of plants around the house but I have a few fake…

Rattlesnake Ledge

Rattlesnake Ledge

  That was where we started. That peak up there on the right is where we are heading to, the taller of the two peaks that is. Known as Rattlesnake Ledge. Apparently it is a popular hiking trail to Washingtonians but I didn’t know that till I researched it.    Tuesday night I told Mark we were going to do this. You should have seen his body language! He was not looking forward to it, apparently he didn’t have good experiences…
