Viral Allergies

January 29th, 2015 · No Comments · Austin, Lori

January always brings allergies to Austin in the form of Cedar Fever (the pollen from up in Hill Country). Even people who have never suffered from allergies are bothered by this stuff. This year, though, I had to take it up a notch. I spent 10 days with a bronchial virus that had me sneezing […]

Death to Popcorn

January 8th, 2015 · No Comments · Lori, projects

When we moved in, we didn’t hire the painters to knock down all of the popcorn ceilings. We just didn’t want to spend that money on that task at that time. Turns out, we chose wisely. Spritz it with water, wait 10 minutes, and scrape it with a putty knife….and it falls to the floor […]

2014 sucked

December 30th, 2014 · No Comments · Blue Lime, Lori

2014 sucked Daddy hated that use of that word, but it’s the most fitting. (Also, he was a bit too literal at times. He also hated “Life’s a Beach” because he thought it was just “Life’s a Bitch” in polite form instead of a xtian re-write to spin the whole concept positive. Parents can be […]

Brass, brass everywhere

November 7th, 2014 · No Comments · Lori, projects

When we bought #DomaLuza, it was hard to see how much brass there was in the house because the previous owner had so many brass and/or gold colored things among her possessions. Even with all of her things out of here, I couldn’t stand how much brass there was, especially the shiny brass. And no, […]

an update

November 7th, 2014 · 1 Comment · family L, GTD, Lori, projects

It’s been a while since we just did a plain old update. So here are some things going on with us. Last winter, we got a new domain. You can now find us at BlueLime.us instead of the longer address. Hopefully, we’ll streamline some of the other stuff, too. At some point last winter, I […]

Out with the old, in with the new.

September 20th, 2014 · No Comments · Blue Lime

Last year, when we got a new refrigerator, we gave up trying to fit the little hole in our kitchen. We had space along another wall, so it’s there. The hole left was ugly & wasted space. IKEA solved the problem for us with a shelf & hooks to make a pot rack. It looks […]

Happy Birthday, Daddy

August 4th, 2014 · 2 Comments · family S, Lori

2014. Today would have been your 68th birthday, Daddy. I miss you. You left us all much too soon. The world is weaker without you in it. My world is sadder with you gone. God is either cruel or non-existent; I believe in the latter.

MicroVacay 2014

July 3rd, 2014 · 3 Comments · Austin, Lori, travel

We needed a little getaway, but the calendar gods were not smiling upon us. So, instead of a mini vacation for a night or two, we took a micro vacay just for the day. I picked Colorado Bend State park. It wasn’t too far out for us to miss our obligations, like visiting Mom. I […]
