another year completed, time for some renovations…

By in Life, Me, Side Porch

Today is my birthday! 36 years have been successfully completed and now I’m embarking on year 37. So far it’s off to a pretty good start, thanks to wonderful family and friends! It can be easy sometimes to get mired down in day to day gripes and issues and lose sight of the important things, […]

spring has sprung…

By in Exterior, Lawn & Garden, Life, Me

After what seemed like an absolutely endless winter to me, spring is finally here! To say I’m breathing a sigh of relief would be an understatement (although allergies are trying to get in the way). Winter does not have a very “uplifting” effect on me at all, hence the quiet on here throughout the winter […]

like a velvet glove cast in iron…

I just discovered the horrible news that Tura Satana , one of my all time favorite cult film actresses and star of Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! died last night in Reno, Nevada. I’m absolutely crushed by the news. I first discovered Tura Satana in London, England in 1995. Several of my friends and […]

it just keeps coming and coming…

Where does the time go? I can’t believe we are in the last month of the year. I don’t really like how fast the time goes but there isn’t much I can go about except go with the flow and try to make the best of the time I have. I’ve been away from my […]

beautiful fall day…

By in Lawn & Garden, Life, Me

Today was a gorgeous day and I was able to utilize a couple of hours this afternoon to do some long overdue raking and yard-work. It was high 50’s and slightly cloudy and I raked out all but two of my flower beds and most of my property perimeter in preparation of having my leaves […]

something to consider…

By in Life

I’m going to step away from my home and my life for a moment to post this video from Reconsider Columbus Day. It is very sad to me that after the horrible treatment of Native Americans that there is no national holiday in the U.S. to honor their culture and memorialize the millions of Native […]

Words can’t describe how much I love my dog Chloe.  She’s a Rat Terrier and she’s 4 years old.  She sticks to me like glue when I’m home and I can’t tell you how great it is to have her great me at the door everyday when I get home from work- especially on the […]

a blast from our groovy past…

By in Life, Me

Anyone who knows me knows I love the kitschy and bizarre! I came across this YouTube video of Raquel Welch today doing a very groovy space dance and thought I would share it! Out of this world, isn’t it?
