Remember Me?



Remember when I used to blog here even if it was only a couple of times a month?  Yeah, whatever happened to that?  It's been five months already!  I suppose you're wondering what the heck I've been doing (you weren't actually wondering that, but it's my blog so I can imagine you were).  Let's see...  In addition to the three jobs I currently have, we've been doing lots of work in the yard.  Unfortunately I have no pictures to show for it because it has mostly consisted of moving plants around and since it's November, none of them look nice enough to photograph.  We transplanted all of the nice perennials from that flower bed that cut the back yard in half into our tiny front yard and planted grass in the back.  Hopefully in the spring we will have a front yard that looks like a cottage garden and a back yard with enough contiguous open space that you can actually use it!

I've been trying my hand at flower arranging.  Though admittedly that hasn't taken up enough time that I could even think of using it as an excuse for not blogging.  I've been learning a lot from reading the Flowers A-Z column on Design*Sponge. While doing some yard clean up a couple weeks ago, I gathered some clippings from the yard and put together this arrangement.


I'm really happy with how it came out.  Unfortunately it didn't last very long which brings us to the newest addition to our little abode.... KITTY!!!!!


Yes, we adopted a new kitten named Olivia.  She's adorable, a bit of a mush and a little terror around the house.  As you can see she doesn't stay still long enough to take a picture and she doesn't like to leave anything alone including flower arrangements. She is driving our other curmudgeonly cat nuts.

Also, I've been spending way to much time on Pinterest, like way too much time.  You can follow my pins from the button on the top right of my blog.  Also I've started listing links for old house renovation resources in the middle of the right hand column.  I figure some folks may want to know where (besides yard sales) you can find cool stuff for old houses.  I'll keep adding more as I find them.

So, how has everyone else been the last few months?  Is anyone still out there?  Hello?....  Bueller?...
