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. […]

$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 […]

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 […]

Project Day, at Doma Luza

For those of you keeping “score”, Texas School came and went with bounding successes, new friends, and loads of new information for As You Wish. Both Leanne (& Steve) and Ben (& Jenn) are now married. My six seven weeks of heavy work is now complete. I can resume some of a normal life, again. […]

Salad Dressing with a KICK

April 16th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Lori, projects

This spring, my Greenling box has been full of many salad veggies. It’s been lovely. Because of all the junk that is in store-bought salad dressings (like sugar and chemicals), I’ve been making my own for about a year. I love the vinegary¬†dressings, so I get something that is healthier, cheaper, and–to me–tastes better. But, […]
