A Monday Quickie

Heatwave is pretty much done. Hooray!!

Got to play with some friends this weekend which was very nice and fun.

This Wednesday I have the pleasure of getting my right gum cut open to clean out a growing abscess under a root canal. Oh joy. I do not feel it or anything, but it showed up on the x-ray and it is nice gaping pocket of pus. I just started 500mg amoxicillin 4 times a day and I have to take it for seven days. I am not excited about having lots of novocaine and a knife in my mouth, but better to repair then get an implant I guess. My luck they will cut me open and then realize I need an implant anyway. The correct term for what I am having done is called an apicoectomy. All I have to say is, thank goodness we have dental insurance, though the endodontist  does not take our insurance. They will submit anyway and MetLife will cover a certain amount and we go from there. Remember to floss kiddies!

A friend sent a nice recipe for Blueberry Bars. They come courtesy of the website Douglicious and boy do they look scrumptious.


If you are feeling saucy, I found a video of a laser apicoectomy. I am not sure if I am having laser surgery, though I do know the endodontist does these like once or twice a week. As a nursing friend once said, "You want a surgeon who does *filling surgical procedure here* all the time, not someone who does them a few times a year." I just hope the whole thing goes well and quickly and that I am all good.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner living in a 280-year-old cottage with no modern conveniences

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.

Cheers!
