Hello Darlings!

Played phone tag with Reveune Guard.  You gotta love that there is a company out there specifically designed to get money for the ambulance companies. Clearly this came out of the fact that nobody wants to pay the ridiculous bills they send out so instead of wasting resources trying to get paid, they chose to contract a company that will spend their waking days doing billing with the potential to ruin everyone's credit. Yeah, this is a going to be a fun battle. I doubt I will win, but I personally think this practice sucks and every time I hear the first aid horn now I think, "Oh, there goes another $1000.00+ customer." Friggin' sad.

Again, I understand these services are not cheap and I appreciate First Aid Squads, but either find someone to negotiate a much better contracted rate with insurance companies, or hold more fund raisers. I say this because going after folks for money after they have been through some sort of trauma is probably not the best way to do business let alone endear yourself to your community even though we need each other.

Okay. Moving on.

Made these fabulous from scratch pancakes. Let me warn you though the batter will rise VERY high in the bowl and so will the actual pancake in the pan, but they are delicious. I added chia seeds and chocolate chips.

After my car gets brought in for it's oil change and car wash, woo hooo!, we will need to get some yard work done today. I also need to go to the bra lady and get measured for new bras. This is an expensive endeavor thanks to being well endowed, but I will not wear crappy bras that fall apart and I need proper support. I also really need a new pair of sneakers. I hate buying sneakers, but that is why places like Marshall's exists so I don't have to pay $85.00 for them.

We no longer have any outdoor furniture. Sets we were given have been used and loved and broken and moved to the trash. I have been scouring Craigslist which I never have success on. I am jealous of people who go on and can furnish a whole house in one sitting. We do have a few various town wide garage sales kicking in so I may need to check them out. We really do like this particular one by Crosley and it is sold in a few places, but it is $279.00. We both really dig the retro vibe of it and the sky blue color. We figured it is a set that could stay with us for some time because it is made of steel.

For now I am not sure what we will do because I do love sitting outside. We could get cheap folding chairs or something, but why buy something cheap and poorly made? Ahh the conundrums of life.

Hope you are out enjoying the weekend. We have some very warm weather coming this week, PRAISE THE SWEET TOOTHED JESUS, and I am so looking forward to watching everything bloom and planting veggies and sowing some seeds. Have a good one.



  1. Hello Fifi!
    I have to admit I don't like sitting outside, unless it is on a porch, and a screened in one at that (like our back porch - our front porch isn't screened in). I do hope you find some metal chairs - I had a lovely set years ago but had to get rid of them because I was moving and couldn't store them.

    Speaking of new bras - have I bugged you about the reddit site yet? Measure yourself by their calculator first - I am a complete convert!

    1. That is awesome.
      Got my bras, they are wonderful and I feel like a new woman.
      Screened in porches are the best and if I had big bucks, I would build a nice sunroom addition and have it with windows and screens. To not be buzzed when eating is much more enjoyable.

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.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.

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…
