We had the vet on the farm yesterday! Oh wait, the vet is always here on the farm :D She just had to do some work yesterday. Henry, our miniature donkey, had a couple of sarcoids (don't ask me what that is) on his ear. The wife said they needed to go so she had to inject him with what she described as a liquid chemo treatment. I got the wonderful job of being the tech. Much respect to everyday vet techs! I had no idea what I was getting into. If you're wondering, holding a 400+ lb drugged animal is not easy, and I'm a pretty big dude! Love watching you work @emilyatucker! Thanks for helping our little guy. Oh and feel free to correct anything I misspoke on ;)
Always a little awkward for me but...A little introduction for those new folks here...
I DIY, decorating, and woodworking. The Finished Project in the past, has been a furniture/antique booth (a business I loved for 6 years) but new things are on the horizon. With that being said I’m in the middle of a huge purge from storing all the booth stuff for this many years.
On the home front...
We built our home in 2005 on a couple acres of land that belonged to my grandparents. They’re both gone now but we are blessed to have my parents & other family members on the other acres nearby. We are now in the phase where our home is in need of some updating and I’m excited to take you on that journey. I want you to know how much I appreciate you guys, your encouragement and kind words always make my day. I find so much inspiration here on IG and I hope I can share some too.
Hope I didn’t bore ya, extra points for reading all of this...
Make it a great one y’all! ~L
Last night I machined the breadboard ends for the #greeneandgreene inspired #sitstanddesk. Check out my stories/highlights for a play-by-play. The breadboards are 1/8" proud of the top surface and 3/16" proud of the edge of the infield on the desktop and drawer gallery top. I used a 1/8" round-over bit on the router table to create the initial shape to the edges of the breadboards. Then, using a sanding sponge in my palm and a downward slapping motion, I feathered the rounded edges to create more of a worn look. I attached the breadboards using Dominoes since the infield is a veneered MDF core and wood movement is of no concern for this kind of engineered product. #breadboardends#routertable
If you haven't already voted please help me decide where to put our towel ring in my stories I'm updating the mirror and lighting in this guest bath, then we just need a new counter, sink, and faucet and this bathroom is off my radar
This should come as no surprise, considering my new username has #mermaid in it, but I’ve always felt most at home in (or minimally on) the water.
I know my other mermaids can appreciate feeling #landlocked in a gym, which is why I love my virtual wellness studio. I want to workout at home? Totally can! Want to workout at the beach? Yup, can do that too!
Instead of having the rigidity of a class schedule, why not take advantage of the mermaid freedoms and make your own?!
I have 10 spot for my #merbabes to join my virtual fitness studio in February! (This is the FIRST day I’m reopening it!!!)
If you want to look good in that #mertail now’s the time to get to flippin!

At long last I narrowed down Cora's bedroom design to two options. Swipe to see the dark vs. light details, and head to my blog today to see both designs in full! I even shared a few SketchUp videos. Because there is no end to what a mother can achieve when their child is asleep. So which design do you prefer? I'm already leaning towards one in particular, but I'm curious to see how many people will threaten to call child services at the mere thought of a little girls bedroom being painted black. #LowerTownApartment
