Travis has been a baking fiend lately. He is producing loaf after loaf of yummy bread, and I’m a little concerned because it seems like the loaves of bread are getting larger and larger. There’s a 4 1/2 pound loaf of bread on the kitchen counter that he made last night, and all [...]

I like using Googlereader to keep track of the blogs I read, but I wind up getting all stressed out whenever I spend a few days away from the computer and come back to about 12 million unread posts. Pressure!
Travis‘ Mom and Bob came up for a visit over the past few days. [...]
It’s a Dyngus Day miracle! I’ve been trying to learn more about different digital photography techniques over the past few months, and today I’ve been validated somewhat. Flickr geeks will appreciate this. Yesterday, the crocus photo in the post below this one was listed in Flickr’s Explore as one of yesterday’s most [...]
eta – Keith Olbermann is going to do a Dyngus Day story tonight on MSNBC!!! Woot!!
I wish I had tales of Dyngus Day celebrations to regale you with, but alas, no one snuck into my bedroom and dumped a bucket of water over my head. I was neither switched with willows nor spritzed [...]
Oh, what? There’s some holiday that is happening today? Something that has to deal with eggs and Peeps? I have no time for that, because it turns out I’m woefully behind on my Dyngus Day preparations!
You may, much like I was yesterday, be asking yourself ‘What the heck is Dyngus Day?’ [...]
(Travis, just skim past the next paragraph – it’s about Lost )
Holy Lost! (Spoiler alert!) The last 10 minutes more than made up for the past 2 episodes. Was not expecting Sayid to haul Michael into the captain (who didn’t seem too terribly surprised to hear what Sayid was [...]
…wondered whatever became of me…
This post is alternately titled “Time Warner blows goats.” I decided to go for the more positive, WKRP-shoutout instead, but first, the goat-blowing: Time Warner Cable has decided to move BBC America to a digital cable only channel. And of course, I don’t have digital cable.
After much profanity [...]
There has been a flurry of yarn related activity here lately. First off, the rug I was weaving that I thought wasn’t going to turn out to be a rug turned out to be a rug after all.
Then I started knitting a hat for a friend. And then I had to reknit it [...]
Things I know:
1. Travis and I have survived this winter solely through a combination of potatoes, chili, and tacos. If it wasn’t for the jumbo 40 oz. bag of shredded cheese we get at Costco, I don’t know how we would have made it through.
Here’s some of the culinary highlights from the past [...]
Got a bit of snow last night and today. When we measured it with the yardstick earlier it was over 12″, but I think we got at least an inch in addition to that. It’s the most snow I’ve seen in a really long time. Travis had to drive home in the [...]
