The PickMeUp

PICKMEUP lIST

Sometimes life gets messy and my life currently is: A. Mess.

So, it’s time for me to start cleaning it up. In order to get through the chaos, I have to assign myself “projects” just like I’m back in middle school – where learning was something that is forced upon you because you had no interest in doing it if you were left to your own devices.

Spring-Cleaning out Jars

LIDS_featured

I woke up this weekend like a bear coming out of hibernation. I awoke to the wonderful Spring sunshine pouring in through the curtains and walked into a nice living room full of light. Birds were chirping all around just like Snow White.

Then I walk into the kitchen, my favorite room in the apartment. But all I could see was MESS. Jars stacked onto jars. All of my dry foods sitting around and my cabinets barely closing because they are packed to the gills!

Honeycomb Hearts

My grandma’s house is magical. There is a lake and cabin, beautiful gardens, a sugar shack where I had my wedding and barns full of treasures. There is a “happy tree” straight out of a Winnie the Pooh story.

One day, I received a picture text from my mom. The picture was a bag full of honeycomb that she found on the ground under the “happy tree” – this grand old tree is central to many memories that we grew up with. Continue Reading

Banana Coconut Buckwheat Bread

I’ve been buying a lot of bananas recently because they are the perfect on-the-go snack. However, after a long week of long hours at work, a couple of them were left behind. They turned to that perfect sickeningly sweet – way too brown – banana bread – bananas.

Darn, I have to bake. Continue Reading

The time to post is now?

But now I am coming to a new dilemma.  Making a sale.  I am hoping that our store will catch on once it’s a shopping season.  The only problem is,Continue Reading

What the F*ckuary?

It’s the end of the year. Everything you needed to complete is stacking up. All the goals you made in January of 2012 – like finish that damn wedding video – were forgotten about until December 2012. You have 25 hand-knit Christmas gifts to make. Plus there is a really great sweater or two youContinue Reading

Jamaican Me Crazy!

This Thanksgiving started out rough. We weren’t going to make it home for the holiday. We decided to stay in town with our JC family, but then, slowly, everyone decided to travel elsewhere. The HB and I were restless and plan-less. I got home from work the night before Thanksgiving and sulked into the officeContinue Reading

KUI – Knitting Under the Influence

Holiday gift giving can get crazy. For those who hand-make their gifts, it can get down right mad. Every minute of my day that is not consumed by typing or using a mouse at work, sleeping or showering at home – is “gift-making” time. Every other minute is up for grabs!Continue Reading

Caramel Apple Catastrophe

I woke up this morning from a nightmare that my HB was leaving me and running away to France. This may be because we ate at a French restaurant the night before or maybe he has a secret life that I don’t know about and is dating a French girl and my dreams are tryingContinue Reading
