I LOVE BOOKS (and writing!) BEST REST DAY, EVAR!

Not too long ago I hurt my spine/leg and have been healing up. Yesterday morning though, I woke in a bunch of head and arm pain. It was one of those headaches where I don’t remember much. Tim put me back to bed and stayed home to help me out.

Best Smoochie Face, EVAR.

Later, I read and wrote from the couch, we cleaned out the freezer, made homemade dog food and ate homemade vegan lasagna that was watery but still not too bad.

Today, I’m fired up and ready to kick butt! There’s just something wonderful about a day of reading and writing from the couch. I feel refreshed.

In other news, I made spelt and oat pancakes earlier today using pumpkin spiced tea blended into plant milk as the liquid and it was pretty darn good. Subtle. But good.

And that my Boogerbutts, is all that’s fit to print. I’m off to the shower because I feel too gross to clean. Which is silly because I’m gonna clean but there you have it.

Cheers and boogie boogie. Whisk, out.

I'm Back, Baby! (and we're debt-free!)


Hello Boogerbutts!

Guess what? It's been 13 months of living DEBT FREE! We got out of debt just over a year ago and I still cannot stop smiling.

In other news, tomorrow our new fridge and oven arrive and I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to sleep tonight.

I went for a smaller no-frills oven and a thinner, taller fridge. The fridge we have now, we could bury ourselves in and still have room for more.

It's honkin' huge.

I lose stuff all the time in the back because my arms don't reach. That, and the fridge is about dead anyway, so this was the perfect time. I could have gotten it fixed but the smaller, thinner fridge is something I've wanted for a long time so I just went for it. 

Insert BIG SMILE, here.

Total budget for the appliances: 2,000 smackers and we came in under budget with 427 left. That included the shipping, taxes and removal of the old stuff.

Now, the real question is ... what colour will I chalk paint the new fridge and oven?

I'm crazy into Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Pictures to come another day. For right now, I gotta get my butt in gear and move kitchen stuff out of the way for the deliveries. 

I'm OVER the MOON with EXCITEMENT!

And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print. Hope you are well and I'll be about later to catch up on your blogs because I've been way for a year but now, I'm back, baby!

Cheers and boogie boogie.

HOME! HOME! HOME! (I love it!)

This is Whisk, reporting LIVE from Smoochie Face's office. I'm still in my jams, just ate a big-ass everything bagel with mock nuggets, local maple syrup and dried habanero peppers. With nothing but sunshine in the forecast, I predict a wonderful 5-day weekend. Happy Canada Day! Happy 4th of July! Happy Summer! Or ... depending on where you live, Happy Winter!

In other news, I have zero plans to get dressed today and later, I might make brownies. But if you're interested in frozen treats, I've linked my two most recent cold desserts at the bottom on this post.

FLIPPIN' FLOOPIN' FLAPPIN' (that's the title I'm going with today)

Okay ... ready? Here's the BEST thing about having a small 1,000 dollar emergency fund set aside BEFORE we started to pay down debt. That little bit makes me feel safe. Makes me feel like okay, if there's a bump, we got it. And got it we do, because when the bill comes (see cartoon), we're good to go. We have it. And you know what that means? For me, no stress. Zero.

Nadda. Nadda. Nadda.

Plumbers came today, we have the money, debt still gets paid down and I didn't have to cancel the order for my new studio mic.

How flippin' floopin' flappin' groovy is that?

I had planned on writing about food today but that got blown out of the water because I had to get all the reno stuff out of the way for the plumbers, which meant I was up very, very late. So instead, I made you this cartoon and I'm sharing my latest two videos.

And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print.

Cheers and boogie boogie. Whisk, out.
