We went to our first ever Pride event last night (a drag show). It was so much fun! We're looking forward to going again next year, too. The place was full, and I had to ask a group if we could sit at their table; they said yes and spent the evening talking to us … Continue reading Pride!
Gramma Izzie always fed "her birds" (wild birds), and I started doing it after she died. I'm still doing it. I have four feeders on the porch, and I recently put up a glass hanging birdbath (but the birds wouldn't go near it with water so I am using it as a feeder now and … Continue reading Bird treats

I'm too cheap to pay that so I just decided to swap around two drawers and make the wraps/bags fit. The gallon ziplock bag box was … Continue reading It fits now!
Definitely his cat
I don't care what he says - Stella is most definitely Ted's cat, and Ted is most definitely Stella's person!

This guy's videos are awesome! I love how easily and simply he explains things, and he walks the viewer through planting whatever he's growing from choosing the right container to how much light is needed to how often to water it.
