Prove JuicyMaters visitors are the good people I think you are

You know, you folks that visit JuicyMaters are really awesome people.  From the day I started this blog almost 5 years ago I have often said that JuicyMaters is not just a bunch of visitors… It’s a family. We are a family of people with varied interests. Some of you come to JuicyMaters for tips on DIY home repairs. Some of the JuicyMaters family comes to take a look and see what new recipes I’ve put up. Some of you are looking for homesteading information, and of course many are looking for the latest posts about yurts. With all of

Building a house...I mean yurt...again.  Getting started.

I’m going to TRY to keep y’all up to date on the progress (its slow, I know) of the yurt addition I am adding here at the JuicyMaters homestead.  I keep trying to remember to take pictures of everything as I add the bedroom/yurt to what was the entire yurt home until I married a gal named Cindy and her daughter, Sarah, but sometimes I forget. A note here on the room in a yurt.  Its great for one person, and its great for two, and it might even be great for a couple with a baby, but for two

Who ARE y'all, anyway?

When I ask “who are y’all”, it is YOU I am asking.  Not some other person who might be reading this a city or state or even country away from you..and not even that visiting neighbor who is reading this over your shoulder, but YOU! You see…I kinda know who you are in a general sort of way.  The software I use to maintain my websites tells me  little about my readers.  For example, I know that 86% of my readers use the Firefox browser.  I know that my “average” reader is a 34 year old stay at home mom,

Toilet malfunction…How do I make coffee?

I love my coffee. LOTS of coffee. Too much coffee.

Especially first thing in the morning.

Morning coffee takes water, and my toilet flowed and flowed and flowed. It flowed ‘til it had “flowed” dry.

Now you understand the post title…”Toilet malfunction…how do I make coffee?”

Over the next 24 hours the well will refill…but until then I miss my coffee.

And I still haven’t adjusted the toilet. If you come visit, remember to pull the handle up, OK?

DAD had puppies, no longer needs valium…but I do

Jackie had puppies last Wednesday…I think the combination of mid-summer heat and 6 puppies suckling for sustenance has done what growing up into an adult dog hadn’t…slowed her down enough that she doesn’t need Valium, like she did back when I wrote this. I just hope that when the puppies are gone, and a few months down the road when cooler weather returns, she stays somewhat calmer than she was before.

I hope she stays calmer so I never have to beg y’all for valium for Jackie again…’cause you don’t help out and send it!
