Inspiration

We took a road yesterday that we don’t ordinarily take on our journey to find the perfect stove. Traffic was stop and go, bumper to bumper, and as a result, I was able to take in more of the scenery. As hubby drove along, I looked up to see something interesting – a...

The Luddites Would Be Proud

Technology hasn’t had an easy way to go this week in the Haddix household. Okay, let’s be honest—it hasn’t been the entire household. Hubby and the kitten haven’t been the instigators of doom. I have. You all know about the mouse in the heat pump who took the (final)...

Tacosagna

We’ve been having friends over lately for game day, and of course there has to be food. On today’s menu, we had something new and untried. I was crossing my fingers and hoping desperately that it would work out. It did – and well. I present to you.... Tacosagna!...

Random Ramblings – Two

I apologize in advance. This post will ramble some. Apparently, I'm more sleep deprived than I thought. I'm watching my husband play Minecraft Story Mode. Way back before the PS4 came out, we had the PS3. In a lot of ways, I prefer the PS3 over the 4. While it didn't...

Nope, Not Today

No blog post today. Why not? This is Pip. Pip the Kitten. She likes to play "fetch the mice" at 4:30 a.m. She decided last night would be a good night to play this game. And the night before that. And the night before that. I'll blog tomorrow, hopefully after I have...
