Rainbow Unicorn FI

Well… *B lets out a big breath* here I am… back again. Life has a way of sitting you on your butt and forcing you to think and think and think, doesn’t it? I had surgery (ankle reconstruction) nearly 4 weeks ago now. It has been quite an interesting time of healing and reflection and crochet.

Bugs 1

A few months ago, we had a ‘Bug Storm.’ These little bugs were everywhere. I thought someone was throwing pebbles at our house, but, when I walked outside, I saw thousands upon thousands of these little bugs flying and crashing about.

Stills: A Weekly Collection 7/52

7 - Desk Top

Last week, I told you I would share my new desk – so here she is! I snaffled her up at the ‘Global Care Markets’ last weekend. I was actually not even looking at desks, but… when I saw this and then saw that it was $80, I may have yelped and snatched the price tag out of the market stall holder’s hand and declared it was MINE. There was a gorgeous young hipster also eyeing off the desk, I {Read More}
