When Tony and I first bought our house, I pictured us enjoying lemonade as we sat in the sun porch while the dogs romped in the front yard. A quiet life, right?

I was so wrong.

If Tony or I are anywhere near the kitchen, our dog Audrey thinks this means food. Never mind...

As I write this blog, it is a balmy 8 degrees outside, and the snow is sparkling white. Popsicle weather. That is, I'll be a Popsicle if I stand outside for more than a minute, even if I'm bundled up with only my nose showing.

I am recovering from a day that makes me su...

Up until early this morning, I seriously considered staying home with the dogs while my husband and our guests drove to Casper to watch the eclipse. After all, I could see a little over 97% of the eclipse just sitting in our backyard, and maybe even take in the eclipse...

I'm not one to spend hours shopping (unless a college football game is on TV). But sometimes a girl has gotta shop. I'm not talking picking out a lawnmower or a storm door. I'm talking feel-good, frivolous, fun shopping. I'm talking shopping for stuff I don't need and...

Some say we'll know the world is ending by catastrophes such as war, stars falling from the sky, earthquakes, and no light from the sun and the moon. I’ll know the world is ending when I can’t get my morning coffee.

Like this morning. I woke up to a spring blizzard and...

Just when I thought everything was in place at home, enter the Buffalo sock monster.

Our Los Angeles sock monster lived in the dryer and randomly ate one sock from a pair, rarely spitting out any old socks. I outsmarted it by buying bags of the same socks, so that I cou...

I decided to explore a part of the Clear Creek trail system I hadn't hiked before. Clear Creek meanders through town, and the trail more or less follows it, randomly stopping and starting again. Like many places in Wyoming (and a few places in town, including the inter...

We live in a small town with limited entertainment options, so we decided to make some pretty major changes to keep away the boredom.

Since I'm female, I have the usual very popular changes to choose from: purses, shoes, and diets. The only one I didn't choose was purse...

December 5, 2016

I'm sitting at my computer with a warm cup of coffee, watching the snow smack the windows, and grateful that I'm not outside in the brisk 21 degree weather (it feels like 3 degrees in the wind). It's our first December snowstorm, and I'm waiting for the snow plow to cl...

November 3, 2016

The early mornings just before the end of Daylight Savings Time are magical. I found this out when I was finally able to coax (read that as carry) the dogs out to the back yard around 6 AM so that they could do their business, bark at shadows, and wake up the neighborh...
