Blood Sucking Vampires and Cannibal Chickens


We have some problems with the other flock pecking at each other so now when the Silkies go to the Coop du Jour to range during the day, Annabel the Cannibal goes to solitary confinement at the Poulet Rouge until her Pinless Peepers arrive.

Pajama Jeans: The Good, the Rad and the Fugly


The final analysis on Pajama Jeans? I give them a thumbs up as long as you cover the waist with a top. They actually look great with a shirt over them as they lie very flat. They’d be better with an elastic waist but maybe I could grow an ass to hold them up.

Pajama Jeans


So imagine the horror on everyone’s face when I was at a gathering of my mother’s friends and something cracked me up and I started laughing uncontrollably and 10 year-old me burst out, “I THINK I’M STONED!”

Hair Envy


My Beautiful Dream Lover spent the weekend with us because Nina and I wanted to climb a mountain before it gets too late and since he just can’t get enough of me dragging him out of bed at 4 in the fucking morning, he came up the night before.

EV-RY-ONE Well, mostly women OR SO I THOUGHT until I ran into Fantastic Mr. Fox at school drop-off on Friday. […]

Living With Glerpes


Sometimes I go through my days thinking I have nothing to share with you. Then I start talking to Lemony about a conversation I had and I realize just how idiotic – and bloggable – it really was. I’ve been way caught up with houseguests … Managing my extremely busy AirBnB business … Some of my guests […]

Staying Out of Trouble


I haven’t been blogging this week because, frankly, there is nothing to blog about. I spent the entire week driving the kids to Sunflower Farms camp in Longmont. Even though it is only a 20 minute drive, between the commute, getting everyone settled, and driving back it’s easily a one hour endeavor. It’s worth it, though. […]
