Thread It Up Thursday

I was hoping to have a lot of project work from the sewing corner for you this week, but darn it if everything that I’ve tried to tear into has failed to come together at all. Take, for instance, the adorable elf shown in this picture: I bought this sweet little elf at a garage…

What’s For Dinner Wednesday

Fall weather has set in here this week and I’m just not amused. No matter how I try not to, I can’t help but shiver and remark about how cold it is. Well, it is! OK, so today was in the low 60’s but that’s put a chill in my bones. How am I going…

Autumnal Solstice

The Autumnal Solstice occurred at 9:21 a.m. CST. I sat out on the front porch for Summer’s last few minutes to soak in the warmth from the sun. Already I could sense a difference in the sun’s heat as it washed over my toes on the porch steps. I snapped this picture at the exact…

What’s For Dinner Wednesday! (For real!)

Look it’s Wednesday and I’m posting my menus! Things are keeping a swift pace here around the table. I’ve put up apple sauce and apple butter this week and still have 1/2 a bushel of apples left, which will go into zippy bags with a Tablespoon of water and be stored in the spare refrigerator…

Try It Tuesday – Something New!

Today’s Try it Tuesday is a short and sweet one. In fact, if you are here, reading this post, you’ve likely already figured it out. I’ve given my little home on the interwebs a new look! Spruced it up so to speak. I like that my photos are going to be featured right next to…

Monday Musing – Including Everyone Teal Pumpkin Style

Our family loves a good gathering. The more people the better as far as I’m concerned. I love to entertain and that entertainment usually…well always involves food of some sort. Birthdays, family time, football games, holidays, Pub Club, HALLOWEEN. Whatever the occasion, food seems to be the centerpiece of our gathering. Even this blog began…

While I’ve not had time to post lately, I’m still snapping photos every day. ┬áHere are my favorites from the past few weeks. Autumn Garden Mom? Mom? Did you fall in? Mom? Are you in there? Refreshment

What’s For Dinner…Whatever

So, here I am, a day late and a menu short…again. These are busy times and I’ve got a lot of projects going on, but fear not my faithful readers, I’ve got the menus you seek. Did you know that it was 4 years ago that I started working on this blog? I was still…

What’s For Dinner Wednesday…Or Something Like That.

OK, so it’s NOT Wednesday, but it could be. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had trouble keeping track of the days this week. Funny how one day can throw us off. And I’ve been off this week. For instance, I knew it was Wednesday yesterday. I was quite aware of it…

Try It Tuesday – A Tail of Two Chalk Paints

My first foray into the world of chalk paint was using the Rustoleum spray on chalk paint to refashion my sewing machine cabinet. It was a good product and I fell in LOVE with the finish.┬áThis week for Try It Tuesday, I revisit the wonderful world of chalk paint with a tail of TWO chalk…

What’s for Dinner Wednesday

Last week I was in line at the grocery store check out and saw the most beautiful sight. A magazine I’d somehow never seen before. A vision… An entire magazine devoted to cast iron cookware and the delicious stuff you can cook in it! How is it I’ve never SEEN this before? Just LOOK at…
