Yesterday Demon Kitty came over to visit us. I’d been out watering the yard and I left the screen door open. When I came back inside, DK was basking in the sunlight cleaning himself.
The mystery plant bloomed, I think everyone was right, it does look like a lilly of sorts.
A few months back some small green shoots poked above the ground. I hadn’t planted anything in the corner where they were occurring, but I welcome most low maintenance plants that show up on their own. I have no idea what this plant is, there is a smaller one next to it (lower right corner). Does any … More mystery plant
When I first brought the transplanted blackberries home they looked pretty awful and Gavin fervently hoped they would die. They sat by the back fence, looking increasingly pitiful and dead. When they reached an awful low – crispy, brown shriveled leaves – with clearly no chance of survival, I moved them off to the side – out … More not dead yet, hahahaha!
We’ve got a new sofa, well, not exactly new, but new to us. It folds out into a double sofa bed, and is quite cushy. We’re debating slip-covering it, it is a bit beige-on-beige-on-beige.
The pansies died, but that’s OK, they were supposed to die after a few months, so I decided to replace them with some “drought resistant” plants that I bought on a whim on a trip to Target. I also bought a new basil, because my old basil died, it wasn’t supposed to do that, but … More “Drought resistant” plants & another Basil

We’re in the process of getting a new back fence. “We” in this case includes the entire set of town homes where we’re renting. Last week we got a phone call from the fencing company. They were calling to tell us to keep pets and children indoors; we don’t have either so it wasn’t an … More we’re fenceless
Please visit Adventure Spoon of Adventure and Doom at http://www.avidinkling.com for the back story. Dull Daily Event: Breakfast Task: Eating bowl of Frosted Flakes I decided to compare my Adventure Spoon with my Favorite Four Duckies Spoon. The Adventure Spoon really couldn’t compete, it was bulky, unwieldy, and had a funky plastic taste that detracted … More Thursday aka Adventure Spoon Day
A week or two ago Frosted Flakes were on sale at Safeway, so I picked up a box or two and unknowingly became the owner of an Indiana Jones Adventure Spoon – the red one with the spider on it. A quick googling showed that I was not the only one to have such an … More Adventure Spoon of Adventure and Doom
