A blog tune up – (slightly) new look, same old stuff…

Hey monkies! Some of you might have noticed that the blog has been down for maintenance for a few days. Those of ya'll familiar with self-hosted wordpress blogs will understand the general, low-level anxiety associated with seeing those multiple updates available.

Jumping on the terrarium bandwagon.

Clever, eagle-eyed readers might have noticed an allusion to terrariums the other day when I showed off pics of my office. I'd intended to include more detailed photos of our entryway, including my new terrarium, in that post, but it got a little long and the pictures didn't get included....

We made it! Texas forever.

Morning rubber duckies! I'm happy to let all y'all know that we MADE IT to Texas. Whew. We arrived last Thursday, spent the night in a hotel and Saturday morning we met the movers at the new house for unloading fun. Nothing's broken, plenty of stuff is misplaced (good gravy,...
