happy valentine’s day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to my dear husband. He wears many hats and I appreciate and love each one. This past week or so, he has covered the “in sickness and in health” part of our vows above and beyond. But he makes me happy in many other ways all year round. He’s my grill master. […]

my life right now…

Currently, my life is on hold. I have a terrible cold. I know I’m not the only one. It is making the rounds. Headache, painful cough, sore throat, low grade fever, you name it, I’ve got it. I have spent three days in the recliner trying not to move or talk too much. Both make […]

happy thanksgiving!

We had a fun Thanksgiving. Older Son and his family were here. All three girls were also here, but Oldest Daughter had to leave at noon. We were very glad she was able to come over for the morning. Younger Son called in the evening. We are looking forward to seeing them at Christmas. We […]

menu plan monday…i mean tuesday!…~ july 5, 2016

I am trying to remember that today is Tuesday. Does it feel like a Monday to anyone else? It’s going to throw me off schedule all week! We had a great Fourth. DH took Snow White, Rose Red, Middle Daughter and her friend Vivian to the parade. It was the 150th anniversary of this particular […]

three little kittens…well, not so little any more…

For a change of pace, I thought I’d post about three of our kitties. We have a lot of cats. More than three. It’s a good thing we are cat people. Half our cats adopted us. And we can’t say no. How do they know?? This is Ski. He is my cat. He is two […]

menu plan monday…on tuesday

A day late but I did get the menu done. But first a few pictures. Youngest Daughter had prom Saturday night. Here she is with Dad. He just got back from a 55 mile bike ride (bicycle not motorcycle). Doesn’t she look pretty? It was beautifully sunny, but cold outside the past couple of days. […]

the new garden cart

While the twins were here yesterday, they helped Pa put together the garden cart he received at Christmas. It was quite a project! Rose Red (looking at the instruction manual): “Which of these is English and which is Spanish?” Pa: “Where do these holes go?” Snow White: “PA! Look at the instruction manual!!” Snow White: […]

the basil is up!

On January 17, Snow White and Rose Red planted basil. Snow White planted hers in a flower pot. It came up yesterday. Rose Red made a planter from an egg carton and planted one seed in each section. Hers came up today. They’ll be here this weekend. It will be fun to see their reactions. […]

here, kitty, kitty, kitty

Someone asked me how many cats we have, so I decided to post about them. We love cats. But even with that being the case, we really have too many cats right now. Eight is the current number. And, no, we couldn’t give any one of them up. They love kitty treats. When the bag […]

mints and almonds

After making Minty Cream Cheese Truffles and Almond Truffles, I was hoping to bake Mint Meltaways today, but DH says the freezer is full. We’ll have to eat the turkey before I can get anything more in there. Minty Cream Cheese Truffles. Really good. You can find the recipe here: Minty Cream Cheese Truffles Almond […]
