In flagrante delicto

Great photos, everyone!

Star-Gazer, this is all very useful information. Both DH and I tend to be procrastinators, and even though I already have a lot of things in place, I know I need to do more. DH frustrates me because...

midday meals

I think it's a great idea. In Asian countries as well as in southern European countries this is the norm. When DH is traveling, I eat my main meal around 2 pm.

Photo Friday

I love to see all the photos!

DH and I were in Quebec City last week where I took a photo of the iconic Ch‚teau Frontenac. QC reminds me of Europe with its narrow and hilly streets. It was cold,...

artificial tree

Our tree had three sections, and it was easy enough to stack the sections on top of each other. It was pre-lit, and it worked well for the first couple of years. The 4th of 5th year the top part...

sofa sleeper

When I opened your post there was an ad on the side of the post for sofa sleepers. They were sleek and modern with the minimalist look you want. It is scary how those ads are tailored to us. The ad...

amiga, I'm sorry if what I wrote made you unhappy. I really didn't mean my question to be such a bummer. I didn't know they had already done all those tests to rule out those diseases.

My DH's ex trained him well. LOL Remind me to thank her one of these days. He does his own laundry and separates his clothes by color. He is an engineer so he is detail-oriented and knows about...
