[avatar] Spring is here?

K: During a zombie apocalypse zombies will still take over this house.
B: Nuh-UH! Zombies eat brains! They’ll skip right past this house! πŸ˜›
K: Awwwwwwwww! πŸ™
I love us! I love this man!

We got creative and whipped up some ThriveLife Peanut Butter. I just reused a bouillon cube jar for a small batch to see what we thought. It’s awesome! We’re going through peanut butter like crazy now!

I’ve got a few more knitting projects going on.

I got creative and put all of my yarn in a milkcrate with the ends threaded through the grates to make it easier to change yarns for the shawl. lol

I love calla lillies. What I didn’t realize is that from one spot in the house, you can actually see almost too many of them. lol

I’ve got some amazing things around here. These are huge wall stickers, colored to be windows showing gorgeous beach scenes. These are going in my cruise line office.

I looked out the window, and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the (peach, nectarines, pear, and plum trees)!
(Winter) had brought me such a nice surprise,
Blossoms popping right before my eyes.
I could take an armful and make a treat,
A popcorn ball that would smell so sweet.
It wasn’t really so, but it seemed to be
Popcorn popping on the (various fruit tree).
What’s even more hilarious is that our apricot tree is the only one not budding/almost budding. Lol! Me thinks the drought may haps killt it. Blarg!

One person in the gang with migraine= “I’ll pop meds and tough it out”
Two+ people in the gang with migraines= oh thank goodness! I can stay in my cold, dark cave with my ice packs, Cefaly, and meds while curled in the fetal position with MOISTure leaking from my eyeballs and asking myself why I continue to let myself live such a painful existence and then begin considering the merits of barbaric procedures such as icepick lobotomies and drilling holes in my skull to let the demons out. ….or maybe that’s just me.
Crazy? I was crazy once…they locked me in a padded room. I died there. They buried me. Grass grew from my nose. Worms ate my eyes. Worms drive me crazy. Crazy? I was crazy once……..
I’d laugh but my brain hurts. Owie! :'( But have I mentioned my brain hurts? Lol!

While sweeping the basement I found a random nut without its bolt.
Me: (pointing with my toe) Kevin, pick it up and put it away.
Me: uh…..too late! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I found a nice, working dishwasher on Craigslist for $20. We picked it up tonight to put it into our basement kitchen. The farming/canning kitchen is coming together nicely!
The first load of dishes is done, just need to put them away and keep going. It’ll be nice to get the farming kitchen finally done-done.

Then it’s just the pile of stuff for the yard sale to deal with. πŸ™‚ ahhhhhhhhhh. (I wish the weather had held out today for us to do wood chips again but no such luck. Blarg.”
The second kitchen is for canning, ThriveLife, and seedlings. IMG 20170314 150237

I also pulled my sewing machine out of storage. I’ve only had it for AGES but never even cracked open the tape on the box. lol

Bug decided she was ready to remove the training wheels.

I’m starting a new blanket. This yarn stuff helps with the panic attacks, so I end up taking it with me everywhere. If I’m not at home, I’m usually face deep in my crochet/knitting so I don’t freak out. πŸ™‚

So…..we thought we had free wood chips today. Nope, the truck broke right as they were ready to drop the chips. Awww. πŸ™ The driver said he’d try to come right back as soon as it’s fixed.

What’s better than a migraine? A migraine topped with the cold or flu. Yay for 102+ fevers. Lol! I’ve been in a Nyquil daze off and on for two days. I really wanna go play in my wood chips (they finally came back and delivered them.

We now have TWO mountains of wood chips! Lol! They came and dropped another truck full before 0730! Lots of work! Hopefully I can help out this week without overdoing it. I’m pretty weak but the fever finally broke (again).

There’s this super cute guy that I like! I asked him out on a date and he said yes. πŸ™‚ Yay! We’re going to dinner and a movie tonight after we tuck in the kiddo. Bug says I’m ridiculous and that I can’t date someone I’m married to! Psh, what does she know? Lol! Although now she keeps calling him “this cute guy”.
