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 […]

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 […]

$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 […]

Project Day, at Doma Luza

June 9th, 2013 · 1 Comment · ChildFree, Lori, projects

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, […]

Unpacking Ad Nauseam

February 21st, 2013 · No Comments · Lori, projects

I needed my computer. I refused to sort to find all the boxes labeled “office” and dig through them all until I found my mouse. Instead, I unpacked as much as I could each day until I found the box of “desktop” stuff. It was one of the last to go on the truck and […]

Whew!

February 7th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

Whew….an understatement. The “leak”? The dishwasher. yay! The dishwasher had a big pool of water sitting in the bottom of it. We don’t know how or why it got there, but the warranty guy turned it to a cycle to make it drain. …and all the water drained. It was like magic! To test it, […]

Weep for Seeps

February 6th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

It rained last night. Today, when I got to the town house, I found small puddles of water in the middle of the kitchen floor. Worrying that we had a leak, I checked the ceiling, the windows, the doors, and both the dishwasher and refrigerator. All were bone dry (even upstairs). In fact, the biggest […]

Small Projects

February 5th, 2013 · No Comments · Austin, Lori, projects

Today was quite busy, but noting much that’s photo worthy. I met the painters this morning so they could cut the hole for the cat door. I also finished cleaning the kitchen cabinets, the floor under the range, and the outside of the range, itself. (Next task here is to clean the burner grates, the […]
