I’ve Been Nominated!!!

Since starting this little food, fun and insane rambling blog back in the autumn of 2013, I’ve been in awe of those bloggers who have such wonderful, interesting things to say and write so well. I’ve also been terribly envious of the blogger awards my favourite blogs have received, wondering how I might write well…

Honestly…

…what am I supposed to do with these two hooligans? The Hubster and Miss Kitty certainly have quite the affinity for one another; like the little sister George never had, and the big brother Kitty never wanted (haha), these two get along like graham crackers and chocolate…which I suppose makes me the marshmallow that glues…

Expect Delays

My apologies for being AWOL for the last few weeks. As this is a fun and sometimes silly blog on my love of food, hobbies, and general geekiness, this is not the appropriate forum for me to discuss what’s been going on lately at the Casa de TweetyBird. Suffice it to say that some serious…

The Reason Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.

Yay for the first post of 2015!!! Thought I’d step briefly back from food posting and give you a silly little update on what’s going on lately in the BirdHouse. So…I’ve been away from home for the last couple of months, dealing with some family stuff. The Hubster’s totally got my back on this; he…

A Very Grumpy Cat Christmas to you all!

In the absence of a real post here (lots of family stuff going on right now!), I’m sending you lovely Christmas-related memes, all to do with my favourite Scrooge, Grumpy Cat! I promise that later this month I’m going to be writing about tons of fun Christmas baking, crafts, and all sorts of other awesomeness!…

Movember!

My nephew is the sweetest boy ever; I simply adore him! Very small children are such little characters, and my nephew is no different. The photos above show his 2nd birthday party where he is sung the Happy Birthday song and is expected to blow out the candles, but is unsure of both the fuss…

…A flame about *this* high?

Yep. Time to look for a job again. Thanks to a whole bunch of “reorganization” (code for cuts-cuts-cuts!) at my place of business last week, my contract came to a more abrupt end than I had anticipated, so I’ll be once again underemployed as of next week. Le boo. I was really looking forward to…

Mawwage!

This is essentially a love letter, not just to my husband of nearly a year, but to the idea of marriage in its entirety. So, for those with weak constitutions or deep impatience for those who are happy, turn away and go look at photos of traffic jams or watch gifs of paint drying. The…

An amusing little vignette…

So, my hub and I have been hosting a good friend in our spare room for the last few weeks until she heads out on her Grand Summertime Adventure. No biggie. She left yesterday evening before I got home from work. Again, no probs. This morning, my husband grumpily asks me, “Where’s my toothbrush?” ……

You’re Doing it Wrong.

Sadly, comment spam is a fact of life for anyone who writes a blog these days. Spammers are not only ubiquitous, but are getting ever wilier in crafting their spam messages to lure the unaware into clicking that link that leads them into one of many scenarios. “Spam is considered the electronic version of junk…

Copping an Attitude of Gratitude

I’ve been thinking about my life over these last several months, and sort of mentally totting up all of the things I’ve done right, and the things for which I wish I could have had a “do-over” (AKA the things I’ve done wrong). With the tremendous relief that has come from finding a job this…

I am the ditziest bride-to-be ever.

I have a lot to live up to.  My younger (baby) sister…she hates it when I call her that…got married to the love of her life last February. I was part of the bridal party. This girl is SO ORGANIZED it’s actually a little scary; pretty much everything went off without a hitch, even though…
