January 25 2018 - I've Been Bit by the Farmouse Bug #farmhouse #hobbylobby


Well, I've been bit by the farmhouse bug. I don't want to confuse you - I still live by the ocean on an island as a matter of fact, but my island kitchen is about to be turned into a farmhouse kitchen. Have you been to a Hobby Lobby? Omg if you haven't and you like decorating with the farmhouse theme, you have got to go. I don't even know how I got started, but if I back up, here's what happened.

December 21 2017 - Unusual Christmas Trees #Christmas #tistheseason #Christmas2017 #boomerchick


I have a story. Years ago when I was but a wee lass, my sister and I were living with my grandmother and we were what I would call hard up. My grandmother tried her best but she was alone trying to raise two children all over again on an LPN's wages. She had a mortgage and was paying on a car to get her back and forth to the hospital so times were a bit tough. One year I decided to take it upon

December 20 2017 - Wordless Wednesday


December 19 2017 - Christmas 2017 at the Boomer Chick's House #Christmas #boomerchick


I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away. My my my. What are my thoughts right now as I'm juggling a mental list of food I still need to get, have I bought enough presents for everyone and will I actually be ready in six days? Ugh. Too little time, but like in Christmas pasts, it'll get done and before you know it, spring will be here and summer and then Christmas rolls around again.

December 18 2017 - Lemax Christmas Village 2017


I want all these!

December 17 2017: Embracing Winter Like a Trooper


So instead of winter coming in like a lamb, it roared in like a lion. We've had snow flurries and it actually did stick to cars for a little while but then melted. I used to hate winter with a passion. I'm a summer baby. Whenever cold frigid air hits, I'm down for the count so I try not to get out in it too much. You can't help it with the Christmas season here and you have to finish your

Outer Banks Vacation 2017


My goodness I forgot to post pictures from my OBX vacation last month. We had a blast. Took the pooch, too! I'm telling you it was HOT but we had fun. Here are a few pictures. I have a fireworks video downloading at YouTube. As soon as it's finished, I'll post it. Here Booder and I are at Morris' which is a humungous I want to call it fruit stand but I'm sure there's a better name for it.

March 21, 2017: A Day in the Doggie Park #Chincoteague #dogs #dogwalk


Ever since Max died, I have thrown myself into giving Booder (aka Cody) more attention. Every now and then I'll designate the day to being a Booder Day.  Today was the day. As the island is limited to where you can take your pooch, I opted for the Island Nature Trail (we call it the doggie park). The Island Nature Trail - which I have talked about before - is a paved winding trail through the

March 20, 2017 - I almost died yesterday...


I need to write this down so that I will be reminded of it in case I'm still alive to read it. My life almost changed for the worse yesterday. I wanted to Facebook it but I'm going to tell you about it here so people don't think I'm a drama queen of which I'm not and they have the choice to come over and read it here if they do desire. Since this blog doesn't have dates at the top, for the

It's National Sunglasses Day!


Ohh...summer!  We're dab smack in the middle of summer and what can say summer more than sunglasses?  I don't go outside without them, even in the middle of winter.  Sunglasses say who you are, I'm a firm believer in that.  So, in honor of National Sunglasses Day, what better way to celebrate with a few pics of sunglasses to die for.... For those who don't feel like putting on make-up....

Tent Shopping!


Okay get ready for this...I'm going to start camping again!  I say AGAIN but truth be known I've only gone camping twice in my whole life unless you count those few times I slept in my backyard with a sheet draped over the clothesline in place of a real tent...I guess you could include those.  My grandmother had a shit fit thinking we were going to get killed but hey we were kids and were

That Moment When Christmas Is Over


I wish you could see my living room.  Dog toys.  Everywhere. No kids in the household so we spoil the dogs but don't think I went out and bought all these toys.  Their stocking was stuffed full of new toys but because Max looooves to unwrap gifts, all during the year I would pick up a toy here and a toy there that he wasn't playing with, wash it and stuff it in a plastic bag with all the others I

Khloe Doesn't Do Doctors


Wow.  I haven't posted for a long time! I miss this blog I really do.  It's a silly blog; the kind that makes you want to be silly, write silly. So let me tell you about my day today.  We have a new puppy.  Khloe.  I swear she's half Sheltie and half jack rabbit.  She jumps ALL. THE. TIME.  She'll come in real handy at Easter. So today I found something in her doggie doo.  And. It. Moved.  So I

Don't Tell Me It Ain't So When 'Tis So....


Nothing infuriates me more than having someone try to beat around the bush with why they fucked messed up making it not their fault but someone else's.  And yes I'm using the fuck word because it just seems so appropriately politically correct at the moment.  Even though I use the fuck word when I hurt myself or part of the phrase I still call my ex-boyfriend. You figure it out.  Oh, no she

Only no one told me about it...


"They're selling Cecil's house." This was texted to me by my daughter last night.  The only Cecil I knew was a great-uncle on my mother's side who passed away many years ago, so she surely wasn't talking about him. I texted her back.  "Cecil who?" "Your uncle." I kinda sat there not moving because the first thing that I thought of was that Emma, his wife, had passed away only I never heard

The Last Man on Earth: Is it a Keeper?


If I were to invite Will Forte and Kristen Schaal to dinner, Will would be trying to get into my bloomers and Kristen would be knitting a blanket with the word SKUNK written all over it (because Will was thinking naughty thoughts).  Will and Kristen are the main stars of a wonderfully funny comedy series on FOX called The Last Man on Earth.  Will plays the part of Phil Miller (the last man on

Remembering Shirley Temple


My, I haven't posted here in awhile, so sorry!  I was looking up a book trailer and I found this.  It's a movie they made about the life of Shirley Temple who died this year.  I wanted to save it and didn't know where to store it so I could watch it whenever I wanted without having to look for it so I thought this blog would be great for this. Shirley and I go way back.  Even though her movies

French's Mustard 100% Natural?


Good morning! I did the walk the dogs thing in the rain thing, made sure the wild kittens living under my deck has some dry food, poured more dry food in the bowl under the carport for the mama, sisters, everyone in their brother, went back upstairs and tried to talk Skylar into eating (she isn't feeling well and tried to bury it) and went to get my soup out of the microwave when it caught my

It's Frugal Week


Helloooo...okay I know I haven't been updating lately.  Life is insane, but I miss my little boomer chick blog and it was calling my name I am. I just got back from a trip to the Poconos.  White Haven, PA, to be exact and it was a bit disappointing.  I loved the fall colors, don't get me wrong, but the place sucks as far as having parks and that's what I really went for.  Four of

Life was good on the Outer Banks, NC


Two days is not enough that's for sure, but I just returned from a wonderful short trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  I go every year--sometimes twice a year--and I still can't get enough of it. We arrived on Tuesday and checked into the Comfort Inn at Nags Head.  We've stayed there before and I really love it.  We've rented houses before but since this was a short trip, we  decided

What would you do if you had one extra hour a day?


I had an interesting comment from an author today.  I asked him if he had an extra hour to do anything he wanted, what would that be?  Here's his answer: "
