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 […]

history trip

Pa took Snow White, Rose Red and Middle Daughter to visit replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships, the NiƱa and the Pinta. The night before, Rose Red admitted to Pa that she was a little nervous about going to see the ships. When he asked why, she said, “There might be sailors there!” Not sure why […]

four little kittens

About three months ago, Youngest Daughter found a stray cat and brought her home. She named her Riley and took her to the vet for a check up. The vet said she was about six or seven months old and underweight (four pounds), but overall in good health. She didn’t have a chip. Three weeks […]

life with grands

The twins came to see us a week ago. Their older sister stayed home to have some one on one time with Mom. Our daughter-in-law brought the girls over Friday evening. We shared a pot of coffee before she left and caught up on what’s happening at their house. Our DIL’s department at work is […]

Ski is right at home

Most of you know my dear cat Zak passed away in October. In late November or early December, I began perusing petfinder.com looking for a new cat. I wanted a black and white tuxedo cat, though he didn’t have to be a long haired cat like Zak. I looked at dozens of potential pets. Finally, […]

my new kitty, Ski

DH brought home a new kitty for me. His name is Ski. He has been raised at the Humane Shelter and is about six months old. He has been home for about an hour. I am still waiting for him to feel free to approach me, but I am having fun watching him play with […]
