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 […]

Winterizing

November 12th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Lori, projects

As the first cold front moves in , we are winterizing. We’ve already built a couple of fires. But to save money, we’ve opted for wood instead of using the gas that’s in our fireplace. Last night Emil ordered a quarter cord of wood; it will be delivered in the morning. Today I cleaned out […]

Zoom-crush

October 10th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Blue Lime

So new that portraits were not yet made. Not a scratch anywhere, yet. The first payment hadn’t even come due. We picked up the license plates on Wednesday, October 9th. Though Emil determined that it was a “he”, we hadn’t even thought of a name. Backstory: We got a new car about seven weeks ago. […]

You can never go home again

August 7th, 2013 · 1 Comment · family S, Lori

It’s been a year (& little) since my grandfather passed and since our vacation this direction last summer…and thus since we’d been “home”. Of course, Paris has never felt homey to me and hasn’t been my home since the day I left for college…other than a couple of very-temporary summers. This trip is for my […]

$300 cash!

August 2nd, 2013 · 3 Comments · Lori, projects

Today, we sold our dining table. It was the wrong size and shape for our new home so we got rid of it. Plus, we never-ever-not-once seated 8 people for dinner. I have $300 cash in my pocket! …and a plan. The Questions Where will you sit to eat? – On the couch with TV […]

“If my vagina was a gun, you would stand for its rights, You would ride on buses and fight all the fights. If my vagina was a gun, you would treat it with care, You wouldn’t spill all its secrets because, well, why go there. If my vagina was a gun, you’d say what it […]

Happy Anniversary, #Kenise25

June 16th, 2013 · 2 Comments · friends, Lori

We went to Tyler this weekend to be with Ken & Denis Hawk to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Emil has known Denise since they were kids. He was one of ~5 people at their Catholic ceremony 25 years ago. We had a blast! Team Hawk threw a lovely party at a cool Mediterranean-looking terrazzo […]
