Exploring the Neighborhood

If you've been following, you may have seen me mention that we have moved. We're no longer in a tiny apartment with noisy neighbors! Nope, instead we have a cute little house in a very quiet area. My mama lives in the house next door. We can have a garden. There are woods nearby, a field, and a creek. We can easily walk to the dollar store, a playground, and a small store that has freshly made foods for sale (you know, for the times we're naughty and want a pizza or cheeseburger.) We can even Read more [...]

Snow Day

We don't normally get a lot of snow here. Usually we get a lot of cold, some wind, a good bit of ice, and a lot of slush. But a couple days ago, it snowed.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It's certainly new for us - we just moved! We found a little house where the rent is cheaper than our apartment was, we're very close to family (walking distance!), and there's quite a lot of nature. Boobear is utterly delighted. Moving is a big deal - there's so much to it. We found things we didn't even remember we owned. We donated so much we're on a first-name basis with Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity. So things are moving a bit slow here on the blog, I know, but bear Read more [...]
