That’s Bugging Me!

Hello! I haven’t been very motivated to post lately or be on social media very much. This lack of sunshine is really getting to me now. I think vacation and home combined, we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine since November! It’s gloomy and sad outside, so that’s how we’re feeling on the inside too.… Continue reading That’s Bugging Me!

“Catty”corner

Hello, folks! Even though I had every intention of posting more frequently, it’s hard to find time on vacation! Have you ever shared a residence with other individuals whose parenting styles are vastly different from yours? Then you might have an inkling of how much subtlety and diplomacy is called for in dealing with situations… Continue reading “Catty”corner

Papoy!

Hello, folks! We’re halfway across the world right now, visiting family, and we’re all so jetlagged! Baby ACD was an absolute champ during our long flight here. The last leg of the journey was a bit frustrating, as she kept waking up and crying and I was already exhausted beyond measure, but all in all,… Continue reading Papoy!

Charismatic Owls

Hello! There’s something about owls. I’ve loved them since I was a very young child, and the very first prize I ever won in my life, incidentally, was a jute owl toy. The sagacity of owls has long been chronicled in every work of fiction I’ve ever come across, and who can ignore the hypnotic… Continue reading Charismatic Owls

Zodiac

Hello! I am perpetually impressed by babies’ determination and grit. Today, I served Baby ACD spaghetti for lunch and didn’t even bother offering her utensils. I assumed she would go at it with her hands. Not only did she ask for a fork, she refused to use her hands at all, despite the fact that… Continue reading Zodiac

Free

Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare? Yeah… Didn’t happen. This is how Thursday played out: Baby tossed and turned, wailed and screamed all night; consequently, I didn’t… Continue reading Free

Uncharacteristic Love

Hello, folks! Amidst the mountains of snow surrounding us, I bring to you very first Valentine’s Day manicure ever! I have mentioned before that I often post texture manis on Thursdays for #texturenailluminati. Last week, D of Nailluminati fame suggested we do Valentine’s-themed manis since the 14th (today) is a Thursday. I decided to go… Continue reading Uncharacteristic Love

Somewhere It’s Spring!

Good afternoon, folks! We’re buried under about a foot and a half of snow here! It’s been snowing for days, and pretty much all day yesterday we had snowfall alongside strong gusts which means a lot of snow blowing around. Mr ACD spent a good thirty minutes in -25°C chills to clear the walkway (while… Continue reading Somewhere It’s Spring!

My Marble-ous Mani

The other day, I was browsing the web and I came upon something called a “pun generator”. Basically, you enter a word into the generator, and it tells you what words you can play upon and suggests a number of puns. As you can tell from the marble-ous title of this post, I have a… Continue reading My Marble-ous Mani

Abstract Beads

Hiya, folks! Mr ACD had to work today, but we managed to go out for a very early sushi dinner. Baby ACD was a total champ and happily played through dinner. She’s very curious, and I’m loving how much she enjoys people-watching and looking around when we’re out. After we got home, I had an… Continue reading Abstract Beads
