Here’s a deal you won’t want to brush under the rug!

These are only a few of what they had available!

While perusing Ocean State Job Lot yesterday, I saw these AWESOME indoor/outdoor rugs.  They have so many colors, sizes and shapes, all for super cheap! Now the sign says “Outdoor”, but I’m totally using them inside.  They’re made from that jute/plastic type stuff and are full on bomb proof.  They’re water/spill proof and super lightweight and […]

Flowers would have been just fine.

So how was your Valentine’s Day?  Mine was….interesting.  Remember while reading the following Facebook post I wrote yesterday that was minus 6 outside.   Valentine’s Day 2016…the timeline: 5:00 am…Wake up to use the bathroom. Notice the toilet seat is frigid. 5:05 am…Check thermostat. 67 degrees downstairs, 64 degrees upstairs. As both are set at 69 […]

Some of the nicest people that I’ve never met.

Think about your friends for a minute.  Your true friends..the ones who you can be completely real with.  What would you say about them?  That they’re kind?  Maybe they make you laugh, are loyal, are always there when you need them?  What about that you’ve never met them in person?  Would that matter?  Should it?

With the holiday season in full-swing now, my Facebook feed and Pinterest boards are full to overflowing with people sharing their holiday traditions.  While we have some of our own, there are some that I can’t get onboard with.  Follow along with the traditions I say, “Awww…hellz naw” “No thank you” to. #1 on my hit list…this […]

Happy (Haunted) Halloween.

My great-great grandmother sitting in the parlor of our home on Court Street in Houlton, Maine.

Have you ever experienced some weird, spooky things that you just didn’t have an explanation for?  Seen something out of the corner of your eye, only to turn and see nothing?  Heard a noise and couldn’t find the source? Our rational mind looks for explanations.   A cold spot in the room?  Must be a drafty window.  Hearing things […]

Words of wisdom.

Her little sister made her a get well card.

My oldest daughter Hallee had her wisdom teeth out on Thursday.  She was due to have them out back in June, but because she’s autistic, her oral surgeon decided that taking them out under general anesthesia at St. Joe’s here in Bangor would be the safer and less stressful option for her.  There was quite a […]
