A Birth Announcement, My Weekend and My Homework

So I had a bit of an eventful weekend….besides getting 90% of my garden in the ground, which involved expanding the current area by almost double, removing mature shrubs and lots of cleanout (my body hurts), our new baby keets arrived.   Yes, I have a birth announcement for you.

We are still working on names…it is a bit tough though as they are impossible to tell apart.  All suggestions considered.

I proudly share with you some baby pictures….feel free to pass around the office…;)

I have some homework that I need to complete too.  My blogging class is wrapping up this week ( I am soooo sad about this, as I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from it).   But I need to make some improvements around here as part of my last homework (due today).  Namely, I need to work out what I am doing with the box up there in the right hand corner.   You might have noticed, I have struggled with it.    I am going to try something temporary (since I am still unsure long term and I think it needs some fixing).

I am calling it Chic Shots… every couple days I will put a little picture of our new babies as they grow and I will try to also mix in progress shots on the fancy coop that we are constructing ourselves … this will only last for about 6-8 weeks…when they will be all grown and ready to leave my nest…to make the move from our porch to their permanent home…and then I will have to reassess again. But for now, I hope you enjoy.

  1. Ahh, aren’t they the cutest little darlings? I love baby animals. When we had a tank full of fish that we couldn’t tell apart, we always named the biggest one Fred. Then we called them “Fred and the kids.” I’m excited to see them grow, although I wish they would stay little forever!

  2. The blogging class is Called ‘Blogging Your Way’ and was taught by Holly Becker who writes the Decor8 blog. You can get in touch with her through her site to find out when the next class will be. I highly recommend it.

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

After so many years of installing countless commercial and residential holiday containers, I could do it in my sleep. Seriously, winter containers have to be the easiest thing you can throw together in less than 20 minutes and I’m going to do you a favor and type up the quick and dirty 101 of getting…

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…
