Is it Wednesday Already?

How did we get to the middle of the week and where am I?

I am horribly behind in getting outside and watering my seeds this am. I planted a bunch of wildflower and lavender seeds and well, they won't grow without some refreshments and since Mother Nature has decided NOT to give us rain these last few days, I need to get my act together and get out there.

In medical news, I am taking Diflucan thanks to "women's issues" aka yeast infection. Good times. I was also prescribed Macrobid for a possible bladder infection but after reading the side effects, I passed on getting it filled. Yeah, I need something lighter than this destroyer of all things functional. Cipro never gave me a problem, but this medicine's side effects read like a time bomb. Thanks FDA.

Doxycycline is making me crazy. Not because I am taking it, but because my dog is taking it and she is thirstier than ever and whinier than ever. Poor gal. She is doing much better since she has begun the drug for her Lyme Disease, but her incessant whining is making me a touch crazy. Ahhhh, God's humor is a bit mean sometimes.

Let's talk food shall we? The other day at Trader Joe's I decided on a complete whim to pick up yellow miso. I had seen it in a few recipes and figured that at some point I would be using it. I cooked with it last night and have no idea how I have not had this in my kitchen! The recipe I used was for miso roasted tofu. I did not make the kale salad  because I have no kale at this time. Instead I made brown ginger rice and steamed edamame and bok choy all in my rice cooker. Thanks to Marin Mama Cooks I am now a miso freak and I cannot wait to use it again. I even made a little extra dressing which was a heaping tablespoon of miso paste, half a lemon and some garlic powder to pour over rice and veggies. Ahhhh I love a good meal like that.

Today is gorgeous out and I will be taking the small one to the park and yes, I will water seeds before we go.

    1. Yeah, but if they can hack it then they are keepers ;-)

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.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

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…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.

In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
