Now that the weather is cooler, I can finish some projects I started over 6 months ago. I pretty much lost all of my drive during the summer and its’ sweltering heat. It’s really not much fun to sweat buckets while attempting to work on some projects in the garage. Although I am enjoying a… Continue reading Fall/Winter Projects
Finally! It only took several months, but I finally finished the vanity project. Perhaps finished is a little misleading, though.

For one, there’s a nice roomy kitchen with adequate space for all of the culinary objects I could possibly want to acquire including, of course, the ones… Continue reading Home Sweet Home
Have you ever made deviled eggs that went horribly wrong? i.e. overly hardboiled eggs where the whites come off in chunks as you shell it and the yolks have a dark casing and are really stiff?
