It is unbelievable that I am 52, yep and as we age a whole lotta shit changes. First, skin, good lord I took a selfie a few days ago and wholly pores. When exactly did my skin look like sand paper. Facial hair and brows: facial hair has multiplied, the fu man chu ugh noContinue reading “Let’s talk aging”

For the love of wallpaper

I love color, print, and home improvement projects. I had previously tried to update these old closet doors and needless to say it wasn’t good. Last week while shopping at my very favorite store “goodwill” I found this fantastic animal print wallpaper for 6 bucks a roll.

Paella adventures

You all know I love to cook, I picked up a new paelo cookbook last week and decided the paella recipe sounded great. So here it is, I used chicken sausage instead of pork and supplemented with a whole gang of Thai chilies to spice it up. I loved it and it was the firstContinue reading “Paella adventures”

I was excited because everyone’s property is maintained but not so happy because some of the rules are silly in my opinion. I went to several meetings when I first moved in andContinue reading “Old Cranky Home Owners”

Kitchen redo 101

When we moved into our house the first thing out of my mouth was holy yellow oak, and who would put a cabinet in the middle of a breakfast bar, so dumb. So this week it was redone. I am cheap i admit it and i also love to paint so the choice was easy.Continue reading “Kitchen redo 101”

Out with the old

Today the new water heater was installed and I cannot believe how small it is compared to the 1960’s one he removed. I have been thinking a lot lately about what is truly important in life. This has been increased by a couple of great people being diagnosed with life threatening cancers out of theContinue reading “Out with the old”
