One of Those All White Days

The view outside my window right now.  It’s an all-white-day.  The kind of day people with no-sun disorder have problems with.  White sky, white snow on the ground and falling.  Doesn’t help that I live in a white house with a matching white garage.  My blue-eyed Boy and Hubster would walk into the living room right now and hiss like a vampire walking into the sun.  It doesn’t bother me so much, with darker and more resilient green eyes.  The snow falling makes me glad I took a second to snap a pic of this…

Just a tiny blast of colour in the snow.  Saw it while we were picking The Boy up from daycare and it pleased me.  Was thinking I could make it the lock screen on my phone.  I love colours so much.  Just put this bit of art on my wall…

Yes, I know.  It’s 4-year-old kid art.  It pleases me though.  The mix of colours makes me smile and I’m happy I had a frame laying around that I could put it in.

As for the cooking stuff.  Went with actual banana bread.  Apparently it’s delicious as I left it out to cool for the night and went to bed and woke up to it already half gone from menfolk eating it for breakfast.  The recipe I used was Banana Chocolate Chip Bread.  Allrecipes.com appears to be my go-to website for new recipes.  Every time I Google something, even easy or budget recipes, it’s the first link that comes up and it hasn’t let me down yet.  I guess I shouldn’t just take the guys’ word for it…

OMG that is gooooooood!  Moist but not soggy.  Dense but not like a brick in my tummy.  Thoroughly not surprised now that they’d devoured half of it so quickly.  Goes splendidly with my coffee and my vape of choice this morning.  Giving myself a treat today and filled up my tank with one of my premium ejuices.  King Kong from Premium Labs I Can’t Believe It’s Not Donuts line.  This is the only line of ejuice so far that I have liked EVERY flavour.  King Kong is a cinnamon sugar maple dip banana donut.  It is heavenly.  It’s treats like this that have got me through all the shit that’s happened lately.  I used to smoke a pack a day.  Now I just take a few puffs of this kind of dreamy juice and any vague thoughts of smoking of cravings just disappear like a puff of vapor.  I Can’t Believe It’s Not Donuts has four other great flavours as well.  I even got lucky and had one of the most awesome vape shop guys ever, Brennden at Steam Shoppe here in Winnipeg, sell me the only gift box he or I had ever seen of the stuff at the time.

Great guy, great shop, great juice.

So, that’s it for today.  Between typing paragraphs about so many of my favorite things I’ve been whittling away at the mountain of dishes that I’ve collected over a couple days.  Dishwasher is broken.  I wonder if professional dishwasher would look good on my resume.

A Gift of Time and Space

This morning when I was writing my blog I was depressed. I was sad and disheartened and just all around blue. One of the most unhappy things was my chosen workspace. Imagine a dingy basement with a dingy workbench. Two years worth of crap and junk piled nearly to the rafters.  Cleaning it up and setting it up was a daunting task and I had no idea where to start. And then my husband asked me to go down to the freezer and get him some ice cream. 





This is what I found. Thank you Love. It’s not finished. I still have to rearrange things and set it up so it’s my own little happy nook but you did all the hard work and I love you for it.  

So, I have a blog

Been working on deciding how to go about writing a blog and what exactly it will be about.  Difficult part right now is trying to type with an incredibly uncooperative “L” key as my son has somehow managed to infest my laptop with crumbs despite not being allowed to touch it.

So I suppose I’ll post a pic of some of my work.  This was a series of “princess” hats I made by request.  Uh, lets say Snow Princess, Water Princess and Tidy Princess with a fondness for mice and pumpkins.  I’m told the little girls who were the recipients absolutely adore them.

These ones are neat.  I made the ball of yarn on the left into the hat on the right.  That one was a free pattern I found on www.ravelry.com called the Squarshy Hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/squarshy-hat.

Looking forward to getting some stitching in tonight.  Just checking if the Winnipeg Jets are playing tonight and…YES!!!!  Mommy is gonna cuddle up with her jammies and her Jets and work on Papa’s afghan.
