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 […]

Merry Gift-giving Time to Us!

December 3rd, 2013 · 1 Comment · Lori, projects

We got presents for #DomaLuza on Tuesday! Merry gift-giving time to us! The new fridge/dryer/microwave were supposed to arrive between 12noon and 4pm, but they called and asked if they could come early due to some cancellations. So, I hurried to haul all the stuff out of the soon-to-be-old fridge while they worked on the […]

Sony Sound Bar

December 2nd, 2013 · No Comments · Blue Lime

A this year’s #gdgt event at South By Southwest, we saw a couple of brands of wireless sound bars. They are sleek and powerful. Not only to they emit great sound, but they also eliminate a few cables. For Emil’s birthday he picked out an affordable model that was also on sale for Black Friday […]

Let There Be (Automatic) Light

November 19th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Blue Lime

We have several motion activated lights around #DomaLuza . I like them in places like the staircase and bathrooms. It’s nicer than turning on a light. The tiny little LEDs are perfect. Battery power keeps them small. Our closet light, however, was a caged, bare-bulb, pull-chain. On one if our many recent trips to Lowe’s […]
