We had a bunch of things waiting for us at the post office today, including a surprise package! M, you are a sweetheart! These will last us for years. 🙂 Thank you! One of the things that was listed as, 'it might come in or it might be delayed', was the pasta drying rack. It … Continue reading Things that came in today
A bit of cheer to share! First up, is this the cutest face, or what? I love how he's got his face smooshed into his own leg. And no, he's not as soft and fluffy as he looks. He's even softer and fluffier! I was also finally able to get to the mail today and … Continue reading The cuteness, and I have the best friends!
I got some early birthday presents in the mail today! My dear friend didn't listen when I told her not to buy be a birthday present. 😀 The white one is from her. We've been using a stainless steel tea pot that has been here for many years, for every day use. We have other … Continue reading Ready for Tea

A free magazine, spotlighting everything from restaurants to … Continue reading So Sweet!
One of the things that did not come along for the move were cat scratchers. Our cats loved the cheap cardboard ones and totally destroy them, so we just tossed the last one we had with plans to get a new one. Except we never managed to get another one. Meanwhile, the cats discovered the … Continue reading The Day our Cats got Broken
Since it doesn't look like we will be able to put up even one of our little trees for Christmas, I made do. Featuring our newest decorations from my wonderful friend. Merry Christmas! The Re-farmer
