And play along with us today… When you vote today, send out an Instagram, Tweet & Facebook [...]
We are totally skipping school today. (Sorry, school people, if you’re reading this. We are totally skipping you today.) Because today is the first day of Austin City Limits music festival. And we have a tradition around here: We skip school for the Friday of ACL. It’s a school half day anyway because Austin schools [...]
Pinterest is so full of fun ideas regarding pumpkins, porches and other paraphernalia right now. But in this old house, I’m feeling nostalgic and normal and I’m sticking with what’s worked for like ever. Happy October!
Maybe it’s because of fashion week or the September issue of Vogue, but I’m really having the urge to get rid of all my clothes. But I don’t want to get more clothes or anything…I just want to get rid of things. The stuff is weighing me down, man. And if I haven’t worn it [...]

At night I hear owls in my trees, hoot-who-whoing outside my windows. Yesterday evening there was a gray fox on the porch. ‘Tis the season, friends. It’s time for the pumpkins.
Harry had a half day at school today…which actually, when you do the math, was really about a third day…and since we drive about eleventy seven miles to school everyday, we decided today was a good day not to do that. So we stayed home to go to the library and read. Which really meant [...]
Remember yesterday’s Football Season flowers? Well, today they have friends. The Frightday Night Lights are taking over the porch. I made these bad boys last year, and they’re still burning like Tim Riggins. So easy. So great. Clear jars, orange paint, can’t lose.
