Our Tree

I decided to go ahead and decorate our Yule tree today. It feels strange to be doing it before Thanksgiving, but I was in the mood to do some decorating. I went with the black and silver on white again this year. I really like the way this combination looks.  I would...

Slow Motion

A video takes the place of our photo for the day. My phone's camera has the ability to film in slow-motion. I caught the Prince in a graceful run... and then added music with YouTube's video editing tools....

Daddy’s Helper

We were at my mom's house and she needed help with hanging a heavy picture. The Prince thought that Daddy needed some extra help. I edited with PicMonkey... a little cropping, added the Orton effect, added the frame, and even made a vase of flowers on the mantle using...

The Kid & the Kindle

We were finally able to replace our Kindle a few weeks ago and it made all three of us very happy! I didn't realize how much I missed reading my books on it and how convenient it was for doing quick online tasks. The Prince loves to play with a variety of fun apps....

New Furniture

This post is long overdue... not because I took it a long time ago and forgot to post, but because it is something we have needed for about six years and we finally got it. New furniture! A local company that has been around for many, many years is going out of...

Biking in the Leaves

The leaves were falling off the trees so much today that it looked like it was snowing leaves. Despite the breeze, it wasn't terribly cold out, so Xander and I ventured out to play for a bit. He decided to bike down the little ditch in our yard while I panicked over...

A Video for a Change

Yep, there I go breaking my Photo A Day rules again! I'm posting a video. Tsk tsk. I published it to my YouTube page first, but I know I have  very few subscribers there compared to readers here. This one is funny enough to share a few times. You're going to love it!...

Our Day of Big Savings!

Yesterday was one of those days that made me understand the exhilaration felt by extreme couponers. We have a shopping strategy that centers around finding the best deals... and having all our city's major stores within a couple blocks of each other makes it very...

Mugging

We were recently at A&W for lunch with Xander's Nana (my mom). We went often when we were growing up... until A&W began to fade from existence around here. We were really excitedwhen they started t make a comeback. They have the best root beer! It's all about...

{Interviews With the Prince} Colors

Today begins a new segment on Tyrneathem. Much like my Interviews With Myself segment, Interviews With the Prince will include a random get to know you type of question or journal prompt. In this case the response will be typed by the Prince himself. For the record,...

Fever

We ended up taking Xander into the emergency room last night. He was warm to the touch, despite a normal reading on the thermometer. He was sleeping and we couldn't wake him up. His heart felt like it was beating out of his chest. They ran a half dozen tests that all...

Water Baby

We've been on vacation! It was definitely interesting trying to maintain this blog while I was away. My phone service was really sketchy and I found I had far less time to turn on the computer than I expected... not so much "leisure" time. We visited Wisconsin Dells...

Chalk

For those who follow me on Instagram, this is a repeat. Xander and I were outside playing in the driveaway. We started out drawing with chalk, but Xander got bored with it faster than I did... so he decided to grab his trike and drive over...

Rediscovering My Spark

Anyone following me for even a short time likely knows at least a little about my struggle with weight. After 10 years of fighting the effects of prednisone, I struggle to maintain motivation and keep fighting the fight against fat. I'm always creating "challenges"...

Pool Party With Nana

It was finally consistently warm and dry enough for a few days to get Xander's pool set up. My mom was over and joined in the fun. FYI: I think we would have been warmer standing in a pool filled with ice cubes! BRRRRRR! Yet another PicMonkey edit. I did an auto-fix...

Zoo Collage

We spent the day at the zoo with Xander's Nana, Grandma, auntie, uncle, and cousin. The weather was muggy. The rain that came was something of a relief. I think we mostly had fun despite sweating our rear ends off. 😛 Here is a collage of our day. Mom and I didn't...

Relaxin’

Today's photo was taken on the 4th while we were waiting for the fireworks to start. Xander was having a blast just hanging out and people-watching. Edited using PicMonkey. I cropped the photo to an 8x10 size. I applied the Cross Process effect and then the Rapture...
