About me!

Welcome Readers!

My name is Sarai Henderson. I write books. Imagine the movie Jumpers mixed with some Jason Statham action, that's my style. Some are about magical misfits and some are about telepathic bounty hunters.

I've been a Ballerina, an ice skater, a wrapper of handmade soaps and for a summer I was a hostess at an Elmer's restaurant. I'm a self proclaimed bohemian wannabe with a love for the outdoors and I've learned to cook from the internet. I've also been referred to as weird, but I just don't see it. :)

I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon City, OR with my husband, my three children (All boys), two cats, a dive bombing turkey vulture, a family of raccoons, an opossum and a coyote.

This blog is about how things run in the House of Chaos. It's a little wacky but we love it.

It got ugly quick and we knew we needed to find a solution since this wasn't the first time we've fought over the subject.
I did some research on our favorite webpage Pinterest to find out what other people were doing about this problem. I was amazed to find out that there wasn't a lot of solutions for adults out there.

I'm a little disappointed really. This isn't an isolated incident between me and my husband, there are a lot of other people out there experiencing this, so I wanted to share our solution so lets get down to the nitty gritty about chores.


Here it is folks, the chore chart. Its actually been working well in the short term. Only time will tell in the long term. So here is what we d…

DIY crochet boot cuffs

Sara here. This is such a great idea. I always hate wearing thick socks in my boots cause they make the boots too tight and uncomfortable. But these boot cuffs are amazing and really easy to make. Mine don't look the same because these ones are knit and I crochet, but it works.

Theirs and Mine
I used a H 5.00MM hook and grey 50% acrylic 50% wool yarn. You will also need a yarn needle and scissors. 

Chain (C) 12 Double crochet (DC) in second chain from hook DC next 9, chain 2 *Front post stitch next row, c2 dc next row, chain 2* repeat from * till the length wraps around your upper calf tightly Tie off the end but leave a long tail for sewing Using your yarn needle, sew the two ends together, creating the top half of the cuff attach a single crochet on the seam and continue with the single crochet all the way around the rim
