Between soccer, softball and work, this is a busy home as of late. My softball team now has another win! While I have no serious injuries I did take a nasty hit while sliding into 3rd. That one ended with some dude trampling over and rolling me me and me... Continue reading

What? Huh? Well that is the name of my softball team. The idea is that we are the leftovers, the ones who couldn't find placement on any other teams. Oddly at one point I had booked myself for up to 3 teams. Because the league is co-ed and on a... Continue reading

The heat has backed off slightly. When I say slightly I mean just that. Rather than 110 degree's on average, we're hovering around 102 degree's. But the mornings and evenings have been cooler, so I've been able to get out in the garden often. We discovered mites on our tomato... Continue reading

It's been a long summer. I didn't blog like I said I would. My beloved husband is still far from home, I work weird hours, and well, I've been lazy. But hey, here I am. As I said, I've worked some weird bizarre hours over the past couple months. There... Continue reading

We went to Knott's Soak City! I can not believe it took us a year of living here to finally go to this water filled fun house located less than an hour away. I think part of it is because I have worked at an amusement park, and ever since... Continue reading

I can not believe the last time I made time to sit down and write was over a month ago! What can I say though, the kids, the dogs, the garden, the job...all without my hubs being here for me at the end of the day.... It's been tiresome. The... Continue reading

It's finally here. The last day of school. According to my little man "I've been waiting for this day for a long time". LOL. Cute. He claims he's been over the school year since about December. So far we have nothing planned more than a trip to the airport to... Continue reading

Not much happening in our little desert world. Work, home, clean, cook, garden, repeat. That's how the days go by. Could be worse I could always be home. The husband is doing well in Afghanistan. Although packages takes about a month or so to reach him, he is receiving the... Continue reading

A pictureless blog entry. Sorry. After what felt like a long week, the weekend was fast and over before I had a chance to get some rest. I didn't actually work at my job much during the week, although it sure felt like I was there the whole time. Saturday... Continue reading

Yeah yeah, more garden pics from me. I know it seems like overkill but my love of photography, and my need to document what I planted where so I will be able to make sense of it all when it's a full blown jungle out there leaves me with lots... Continue reading

The days are all kind of running together now. We're just over 2 months into my husband's deployment. My husband is very loved and missed here in California. But we are proud for his dedication and service to his country. He is an amazing man. I can not wait until... Continue reading

I know it's wishful thinking. But if the weather would just stay exactly as is, I would be one happy chica. Today, not having to be at work until later this morning I decided to troll around the garden. I am so delighted with my findings! Below: The first garden... Continue reading

I don't know what happened but the roses went from "coming in nicely" to WOWEE! I'm so delighted. I picked a few large ones this afternoon. These bad boys are literally about 6-8 inches if not wider in full bloom! I am so excited! At this rate I'll have fresh... Continue reading

Cody and I have today off. How rare. We got to sleep in this morning without having to worry about alarm clocks, school lunches or buses! I made a nice yummy breafast of bacon and eggs, and now we're just relaxing. I am still debating about Easter Sunday. I'd like... Continue reading

My wonderful amazing husband has been gone one month. That wasn't so bad at all. Yeah I miss him dearly, but I've got so much to do around the home front it's not been a big deal really. His first care package should be arriving soon as well as the... Continue reading

We're about a month into this deployment gig. I have been busy as can be. I think I've only had 3 or 4 days totally off work. One hour here, 4 hours there, it's all adding up, and wearing me down, but I love keeping busy. I can't imagine if... Continue reading

We're at our two week point into this deployment gig the husband is doing. It's been interesting. The job has kept me extremely busy. Cody and I are used to functioning as a team so there are no issues on the mommy front. The house has remained tidy and kept... Continue reading

This past weekend I worked at the store a total of 29 hours. That's two days work. It was a very long, exhausting weekend. Monday morning my body ached from head to toe. Today, I'm still just completely drained. Oh how I wish I didn't have errands to run today.... Continue reading

Our little desert home is shaking up with all kinds of change. We are no longer "chicken" people. Turns out chickens, well poultry in general can not be kept as pets on our property. I was not fined, or even formally warned. I made the call myself, after we'd been... Continue reading

I was warned that the 80+ degree weather we had last week was not going to stay that way. Still, I started about 100 seeds in seed starters. Today I woke up to the sight of snow on the rocks and hills behind the house. Soooo I guess the seeds... Continue reading

It's been a long month with the man gone, but working and doing obscene amounts of housework sure made the time go by faster. I picked up Rebel's urn from the vet yesterday. It was very sad, but the care that went into creating him a nice wooden urn with... Continue reading

I've gone again and let several days pass by without bringing the world up to speed on what's happening in our little desert world. The husband is still off doing his Marine thing. And frankly, I've been sad. On Tuesday, January 31, 2012 just days shy of his second birthday... Continue reading

Tuesday and Wednesday were very long days! I closed the store both evenings, and even opened as well on Wednesday! That made for 2 very long days. Evenings there are very interesting. Lot's of charactors coming through at night. My super wonderful husband gave me one of his knives, and... Continue reading

If I haven't made it clear enough....IT'S COLD! My husband and I fully intend to live in a location that provides four seasons... yeah including winter. Real winters too, with the snow and what not. But that place will have a fire place, maybe more than one. Until then I... Continue reading

My super wonderful husband turned 42 this weekend! Of course he was off training and not here to celebrate. We did roast marshmellows out by the firepit a few days prior. My guess is he spent his birthday trying to stand upright against this storm that no doubt reached him... Continue reading
