I’m pretty sure my neighbors think I’m nuts because I’m always doing stuff like this:
I dyed the drawers of my dresser (pic heavy)! Behold! It really was an adventure, and I’ve decided that I love dyeing wood. It’s so forgiving; I found it much easier to use than stain, 10/10 would recommend.
In which I do what I’m told and test the colors.
As some of you may have seen, I’m working on refinishing a dresser. I’ve gotten the paint and original finish stripped off, all of the big, flat surfaces have been rough sanded down and, while most of the wood looks nice and clean (and has nice grain, and even some curly figure), I have unearthed some staining…
Hi GT and friends! *waves enthusiastically* Please, pull up a chair and join me while I make a sad dresser happy again. Maybe, I hope! (pic heavy)
Help me pick a bible, guys!
So my new NuvaRing got thrown away (I’ve been having a lot of NuvaRing issues lately!). Somehow the Rx bottle got taken out of the pharmacy bag and the ring, with its flat packaging, well, oops. Great. So I call the pharmacy and they can tell me right now that my insurance isn’t going to fill it again. Oh. Well how…
Looks like I’m going to have two periods this month! It’s the joy of the holidays!
I went to a new primary doctor today and, seriously, she was amazing! I babbled at her and she patiently listened, responded compassionately, and didn’t at all make me feel rushed. I feel like I got really lucky because I don’t have the best insurance, but it’s almost like she was meant to be my doctor.
I think Mr. Misfit and I just now decided that we’re sick of renting and want to buy when our current lease is up, but there are some fundamental truths about us that we absolutely must accept, primary among them the fact that we are absolute crap at outdoor maintenance. That hard truth steered us in the condo and…
I just did a wine tour in the Finger Lakes and I am drunk. They just pour these little glasses but man do they add up.
What’s everyone having for dinner? On a complete lark I decided to recreate an etouffee that I had at a local restaurant. I’ve never made etouffee before and it came out great!
I just saw my first complete rainbow!!!! I am very excited!!
If you have any posts that you originally posted to GT that you moved to drafts, they are currently view-able by anyone with GT authorship via the dashboard. So I’d say either move them to drafts on your personal kinja or delete them entirely.
She has a double coat so she’s not supposed to get bathed that frequently, HOWEVER, yesterday she decided that kicking up mud in the stream and then rolling over in it was on her bucket list even though she’d already had a bath recently. What to do?! Despite her clear pleasure over being filthy she smelled…
I got myself a job today!
You’d think the whole “undone yet mostly polished waves” thing would be easy when your natural texture was more or less “undone yet slightly polished waves,” and yet. This stuff is all so deceptively tricky, don’t you think? Help me air dry my hair! Tell me how you do yours.
PSA: Doctor Who is back up and streaming for the US audience on Amazon Prime starting today! This is vry big news.
I gave in and started reading Marie Kondo’s book last night, I am in the middle of an apartment facelift, after all. I got to the book section and instead of thinking about getting rid of stuff, I remembered something I wanted to buy.
Lisa Eldridge’s new video has a demo and a trip to the museum, just like a makeup guru Mr. Rogers! I thought it was really interesting, I hope you enjoy it. I’d be happy if she keeps up the Mr. Rogers act and shares more of her research from her recent book. Has anyone gotten her book? What do you think?
