Our solution to a window in the shower.

Every month, I get a few emails asking how we handled the window in our shower…

I’d like to reply—oh, la la la… that’s so boring… Wouldn’t you rather ask me what I’m planning to be for Halloween?

Why is no one curious about that?

But instead of grilling them about their failure to ask me the truly important questions, I cobble together a response about the window.  And I promise that SOON I’ll do a real post.

So—to the people I told that to, and never did it? I’m sorry.
Now you know what my husband deals with every day.
What takes other people one hour?  Takes me 49 years.

It causes all kinds of problems…  Most of which are way more serious than unwritten blog posts.

Anyway. We have a large window in our shower…  it’s not unusual in old houses.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

LUCK on your side… a gift for my best friend.

A few weeks ago, my best friend Lara, had the pleasure of walking me through one of those experiences that initially appear to be soul-crushing and life-destroying…

Although, later are revealed to be less than significant… and possibly blown out of proportion… and maybe even a figment of your imagination that would have published you beside an advertisement for an all-male, nude-revue.

No one talks you through this like Lara.

LUCK on your side… embroider “Luck” on the side of a t-shirt!  Simple project, makes a great gift for your best friend!!

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
