Week 27 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Happy Independence Day! I celebrated our nation's birthday with a virus. Some awful sore throat and mild congestion crap kept me sidelined. Didn't see a single firework. On a positive note, I have been crafting like crazy and binging on the show "CHiPs." Love me some Ponch and Jon! . Slightly overboard with the patriotic stickers this week, thanks to a cheap pack from Hobby Lobby. #patriotic #stickers #patrioticstickers . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #independenceday via Instagram https://ift.tt/2zsjcl9

Week 26 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. I spent this whole week cross stitching and finishing two audiobooks. Read a book about the history of the search for the cure to scurvy (absolutely fascinating!) and got through a book about how the cause of cholera was finally discovered. Would prefer never get scurvy or cholera. Ick. Eating lots of fresh fruit lately! And thankful that I have clean water. . Also, Annie has her own Instagram now! Enjoy the cuteness @anniethekoratcat! . I fell in love with this @doodlebugdesign paper the second I saw it. Chopped a piece to keep forever in my bullet journal. I wish I had a sunny spot in my garden that I could have look like this, but I only have shade. 🌻🌺🌼🌸🌹 . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship via Instagram https://ift.tt/2uhQ0aI

Got a couple new Japanese candy kits this weekend. This kit was probably the best tasting kit I have ever had. The soda was ramune (sort of tastes like a cross between bubblegum and lemon-lime?) and it fizzed! The ichigo daifuku (strawberry and chocolate in mochi) was delicious! The odango (mochi balls on a skewer) were a bit bland but good. The taiyaki was surprisingly good, sort of a yellow cake with an artificial vanilla sweetness and filled with chocolate pudding. Hard to imagine that this all came from powders mixed with water, but it did. 🍑 . #japanesecandykit #japanesecandy #japan #ichigodaifuku #ramune #odango #taiyaki #unhealthybutyummy #sweettreats #japanesedessert via Instagram https://ift.tt/2tNafxd

Week 19 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. "Thatch" is a dirty word around our house now. The Man, with some help from my amazing Dad, rented a power rake. We (yes, I helped do yardwork too) tore out over half of the organic material in our lawn. It was bad bad, especially with moss, but now the seed can fill in the many bare areas, and the lime and fertilizer will actually get to the soil. We earned our vacation this week! Also thanks to my parents, we joined them for a lovely four-day stay on the Olympic Peninsula complete with yummy food, long walks, and some gorgeous views of Discovery Bay. #thankful #vacation . Longtime followers might recognize this week's artwork as the same stickers I used throughout last year's #bujo spreads. They are from #learningplayground. I was in a collage-y mood, and these stickers were just chillin' in my bottom drawer. Yay for using what I already have! . #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #springstickers via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi8gAB0hyO7/

I completed my second #diamondpainting today. These pink roses took me about 4 hours to finish over the last two weeks. I took my time, used an inclined surface, and successfully prevented neck pain. While I like the image, I was not impressed with the quality of the canvas (not very sticky, creased in a few places), and many of the drills were misshapen, defective, or stuck together. I also prefer full drill patterns. For $6, this passed the time, but I am not going to rush out to have it framed. . #diamondpaintingdiy #5ddiamondpainting #paintwithdiamonds #crafts #hobbies #roses #pinkroses via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BiQIllknF_S/

We drove over to the coast just to have #chowderbowlnewportoregon for lunch. There were no other planned stops. After eating gallons of chowder, The Man pulled me into @sjcustomjewelers, partly so he could look at watches, and partly because the store sells Oregon sunstones (which I might be kind of in love with). They had a perfectly matched pair of peach oval sunstones set in white gold leverback settings. The stones were mined in Oregon and have a fine layer of schiller. My favorite stone in my favorite setting in a metal I can actually wear, and at a price I can afford: #takemymoney! The stones are fairly small, maybe a carat each, but in the sun they just light up and glow! #sunstone #sunstones #oregonsunstones #sunstoneearrings #leverbackearrings #oregongirl #oregonnative #latechristmaspresent #thanksmomanddad via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh2sasGHY9a/

Week 13 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Had a busy week in the run up to hosting Easter dinner. Being a housewife and hosting an event is stressful to me because the condition of the house is a direct reflection on my ability to do my job. I take pride in my clean, organized home, but feasts require a certain amount of "extra" that really make me reach higher than usual. Like cleaning the oven with elbow grease and baking soda. Thankfully I learned how to take my oven door off! Was still sore for two days... . Springtime means butterflies in this area! For this week's art, I applied some #zigcleancolor markers to #bristolpaper and mixed the color with a bit of water. Once that dried, I cut out the #butterflies using the @simonsaysstamp #leannabutterfly die. I bent the wings up just a bit and glued the centers to my page. Simple but colorful. . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BhIDVuBjDBH/

Week 12 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. One year ago this week, I found out I had high cholesterol and was generally an unhealthy mess. I invested a ton of effort into myself and a healthy future, lost nearly forty pounds, and dropped all of my high numbers to normal or better. I didn't go on a diet or have an exercise program, just faithfully meal prepped to eliminate excuses and manage portions, and I removed all refined grains, added sugar, and most saturated fats. Here's to a much healthier me! . Loving my new extra fine #pilotfrixion pens and some new sticker sets from #stickerking. These #frog #stickers remind me of a particular aunt, and I knew they'd be perfect for late March. . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #showmeyourplanner #habittracker #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #weightlossjourney #eatrealfood #healthyfood #mealprep #cleaneats via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BgzYTlcjd8C/

I think I can officially say I know how to quill now. This card took a ton of effort and skill, plus some ability to play with long, skinny paper strips while avoiding a cat that just wants to "help." Quite pleased with the final result. Hope Dad likes it (the cash inside should help πŸ˜‰). . Used @simonsaysstamp #circlesayings in #mementoink on white cardstock and @heroarts #envelopepattern in #versamark on @neenahpaper #desertstormcardstock.

Great week including a painless dentist appointment (apparently that can be a thing--and no, I was not drugged), a fun day in the big city with Mom (we didn't get lost or stuck in traffic--and never used a map), and The Man and I completed a fun scavenger hunt that caused a perfect amount of head scratching and walking for a sunny March afternoon.

Decided that I needed an Easter/spring wreath for my front door. After finding unattractive and oddly colored pre-made wreaths at three different stores, I decided to make my own. Went more "spring" than "Easter" so I can leave it out longer, plus it will match the purple rhododendrons in front of the porch. Took less than an hour and under $30.

I made the #kraciepopincookin #tsukurou #okosamalunch kit today. This was a complicated kit that took me about half an hour to make. The candy flavors are all fruity and incredibly sweet even though they look pretty savory. The tempura shrimp was amazing! After forming the shrimp, I rolled it in a sort of #poprocks powder and then in water, so it sizzled! Did that five or six times to "deep fry" my shrimp. #ohjapan #candy #candykit #imadethis #iatethis #tasty #exceptthemeatballs #littleballsofregret via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BgXsmFQBQOp/

Week 10 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Did a ton of research on bath towels this week. The hardest part of my purchasing decision was the color. While the Egyptian cotton makes me feel like I am being hug-dried by a giant, fluffy bunny, I'm not sure if I will love white. What color bath towels do you prefer? . Art this week was super easy. Used some stamp stickers (not real postage) on a bit of shiny gold cardstock.

New sewing project means new cat-proof needle storage so we don't get a repeat needle extraction surgery like last month. The cat is already mad that I won't let her chew on the corners of my pattern, play with the thread, or sit on the linen. She also can't sit in my lap while I stitch.

Week 3 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. This week's short chore list is deceptive. Life as a housewife means I get pulled where I am needed, frequently without warning. Sometimes that means holding Mom's hand as she goes in for minor surgery. Sometimes it is snuggling on a cold, hard floor with a cat that needs love more than laundry needs tending. And sometimes it is sitting down for ten seconds with my #zigcleancolor #realbrushmarkers and watercoloring on #bristolpaper while my dinner cooks. @lawnfawn #loveyoualatte #versafine #smokeygrey #coffeeisgross #teaisbetterthancoffee #bujobeauty #minimalistbujo #showmeyourplanner #bujo #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #bulletjournaling #habittracker #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship #ilovemyjob #bestjobever via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BeZprVRjDTe/

Hi, it's Annie with an update from the Cone of Shame. It has been a week since I tried to help Mommy with her sewing by eating her needle and thread. Since the vet had to open my intestine to retrieve the needle, I have to wear this dang collar for a few more days. My incision is healing well, and I have regained my fierce nature, but this soft chicken gruel called "wet food" is completely disgusting. I want my @orijenpetfood crunchies, and I want them now!

Week 1 in my 2018 #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. Is this a bullet journal or a planner or both? Started this year off sick--that's my excuse for being late posting this. Trying out a new style with a task list instead of daily lists, simplified my weekly habit trackers, and took out the color so I could focus on a doodle box instead. Lots of changes, and I miss my stickers, but minimalism is definitely more my style. This week's art is @simonsaysstamp #ornatebackground over masked numbers. Used #prismacolorpencils to fill in. #happynewyear2018 #bujobeauty #minimalistbujo #showmeyourplanner #bujo #bujoinspire #bujocommunity #bulletjournaling #habittracker #bulletjournallove #bulletjournalcommunity #planneraddict #handwriting #penmanship via Instagram http://ift.tt/2mymhqL

Annie here. Do not adjust your graphics settings, folks, things have gone pixelated. Mommy figured out how to turn an old cell phone into a webcam, so now she can spy on me 24/7. The motion detector alerts her whenever I move. I wasn't much into food or water for three days, so Mommy packed me off to the vet today. I got a smaller collar so I can reach food now! Also got some fluids and something to make me hungry. I have the munchies now. This new smaller collar is not my favorite, but it's way better than the old one. Time to put nose prints on everything! Did I mention I have the munchies now? #feedme #cat #catsofinstagram #catsurgeryrecovery #korat #koratcat #annie #problemcat #furbaby via Instagram http://ift.tt/2D2vrGm

This Happened On January 10, 2018 at 12:26PM


An update from the Cone of Shame: I'm home. The humans helped me escape the vet, but they insist I must wear this infernal cone. Something about, "this is what happens when you eat Mommy's craft supplies and have to have them surgically removed." Pssh. Eating and drinking is tough still (stupid collar is in my way!), though I am a champ at using my pine pellet box. A long road to recovery, but at least I'm home. #annie #cat #catsofinstagram #korat #koratcat #coneofshame #coneofshameproblems via Instagram http://ift.tt/2CRFhqc
