Learning 2 Bake from Scratch – XXXVII
Chocolate Baguette with Lemon “Why on Earth?” is a fair question. I’ve been experimenting with baguettes. Brian Lagerstrom is my inspiration for that: I’ve not had good luck. I don’t get much rise in the oven. I believe this is due to the last rise and slicing the top. I will probably never find out…
A Simple Internet Trick
I haven’t posted for a while and I’ve been meaning to dig this out, so two birds, one stone: The BEST internet trick for keeping your stove clean: It’s hard to believe, but the same trick works for anything!
Is He Still a “Local Artist”?
Now that we are (finally) moving in, art is being hung. That print is one of my favorites. The picture was taken by a friend. When I saw it on Facebook, I jokingly asked, “can I get an eight-foot wide print?” Turns out, the answer was “yes”. This is it in the Denver living room…
The cats are not allowed on the counters. They know this. So, they wait until we go to bed before traipsing about the countertops. I’m pretty sure they are not aware that they leave evidence. This is not without precedent. The problem – that being the paw prints on the countertop, not the cats on…
Annoying Computer Shtuff
Microsoft decided that I must upgrade to Windows 11. The joy overwhelms me.
I was a bit worried about my sizing skills (Lysenkoism is a lie – sizing is most definitely not in the Sizer blood), but while there are some uneven wall impressions showing through, I think it turned out just fine. We wanted to do something fun and in keeping with the “farm” theme we’re trying…

Update: In case you haven’t been following along, here’s a before picture of the same space, albeit from a…
Running with the Big Dogs
Who would have guessed that having an amazing coffee maker would result in drinking more coffee? We upped the monthly order for 2 12-oz (formerly known as a “pound”) packages to a 5-pound (still actually pounds) package. Update: This dog aint that big! I think The Laird may have overcompensated. We now have three five…
Now that there is trim and carpeting, I could open Christmas presents! The Laird was right: One can barely notice the leopard print carpeting. It does make me feel young. I’ve bought many appliances, but this is the first time I’ve bought carpeting; I must be a young ‘un. The unwrapping is always fun. I’ll…
Let There Be Carpet!
Only the bathroom floor is still unfinished. I don’t seem to have taken “before” pictures of the bedrooms, but here are the “after” pictures. The office to be: The white/unpainted spot is because there will be a wallpaper mural there. I need to size the wall. That should have been done before the floor, but…
