Little Whitnell Cottage

Happy weekend!!! I hope your week was great! Ours was!!! We had a lovely lovely time at our little vacation cottage: Little Whitnell Cottage near Nether Stowey in Somerset, England. Today I have this card to share, a few photos and a little bit on our cottage renting experience… Back in the days my ex and I used to own a timeshare. The places we went to were nice and they were definitely better than a hotel. We didn’t own the timeshare for long but while owning it I was introduced to home/cottage rentals and I told myself that one

A Sketch and a Hop

Today is a special day because I get to use my blog to do something nice! I have a thing for old people, especially little sweet old men, they make me go “awwwwww” and reminds me of my own grandpa. but in general, lot of them just brings a smile to my face. A little squeeze on my arm, a little laugh, home made cookies, whatever… old folks gives me the warm and fuzzies. I especially love loving elderly couples. Ya know, those ones who still giggle at each others’ jokes or still walk hand-in-hand or have that look for

Hello and Goodbyes

Goodbyes are rarely easy, doesn’t matter if they’re with friends, families, co-workers, or jobs (it was even tough parting with my work’s Mac Tower and 30″ monitor!). I’ve had a few goodbyes in this life, especially lately because of hubby’s job, but we all know that if we really want to one day we’ll meet again. Although starting something new is exciting it can be tough at times to quit what you have so that you can start that new thing. Today I sent in two emails. Both were resignation emails. One to Sweet Shoppe and another to the DigiChick.

On Settling

As a military family we think about where we’ll be next. If I can have it my way I’d love it if we stay overseas until hubby’s done with the military. Then after that I hope to secure a job outside the U.S. and travel some more. Although I’d be happy retiring outside the U.S. hubby would rather go back so that he can be closer to his good friends (he’s also not too crazy about European taxes). I love America but I feel like there are still so many places to see out there, old and ancient places especially.

I Am Baaack!

We ALL back home and had a wonderful time visiting friends, sight-seeing, and of course getting the hubby. The trip had a lot of stories which I will share later. Right now, I just want to post this because this was Saturday’s Waltzingmouse’s sketch that I couldn’t make live Saturday due to no Internet and I never did set it up before I left or in Germany when we were visiting our friends. You’d think that being on vacation would give one plenty of energy but not for me. I was pooped!! My friend pooped us all out! Here’s just

M’s First Day

Yesterday was Emma’s first day back at school. Year 2 or 1st grade!!! She looked so grown up walking to school… short but grown up! It felt a bit quiet around the house after she left but it was nice. I could go back to tidying the house while Jovie’s napping and have it be nice for a few minutes at least. It was zen-like too to not have anybody going: Mom, mom, mom, mom, can I, I can I, can I, pleeeeeeeeeeease… Ahhhhh, love and duct tape!! I’ve also been doing last minute prepping before my “big” drive to
