menu plan monday ~ september 25, 2017

This past week seemed to fly by. I’ve been pretty busy and that always helps, doesn’t it? On Sunday, we drove north to visit my Dad and two of my siblings. We had a good afternoon. The grands enjoyed playing with my brother’s daughter who is four months younger than the twins. They don’t get […]

springtime putz houses

I have been working on some springtime Putz houses. Here are a few that I have finished already. The pink cottage. Looks like a fairy house, doesn’t it? It has a bunny greeting card on the bottom of the base. The houses are embellished with my first attempt at using polymer clay. I made the […]

This week we are enjoying a visit from our younger son and his wife. It is a joy to have them here for a few days. They live in Seattle so are becoming reacquainted with the heat and humidity of the Midwest. It’s the kind of heat that slams you in the face and the […]

I am way behind on posting. Here it is Wednesday already! The day is so pretty out, that I am sitting in the swing in the backyard, doing some computer work. I’ll do a quick menu for the week, then will spend some time doing another post. Spring is in our yard and I would […]

Here’s to a new year. Have you made any resolutions? I haven’t given it much thought yet. December is always so busy here. And I am still recuperating from it! But this week will be quieter and I plan to make some time to think about what I want to concentrate on this year. Write […]

I suppose I should title this post “back in the saddle again.” Where’s Gene Autry when you need him? I haven’t been keeping up with my menu planning. The holiday season was hard this year. I didn’t feel well and the weather was not cooperative for some of our planned events. My side of the […]

We had a lot of twin time this past week while their parents were out of town for the weekend. Lots of fun, as usual. They made colorful cookies with Pa. And Snow White helped knead the bread. They read lots of books during quiet time. They like to push the love seats together, but […]

I hope you had a good Mother’s Day. We had fun here, with all our children home, with the exception of our younger son’s wife. She’ll be visiting the area at the end of the month. We enjoyed the long weekend with our son home from Seattle. My Dad joined us for dinner and the […]

chalkboard Christmas tree

Genny was here this weekend, helping with Christmas decorating. She worked on the chalkboard Sunday and made an amazing Christmas tree. I found the idea at the blog “A Legg Up.” Our chalkboard starts about a foot above the floor and is just over eight feet tall. Genny began by dividing it vertically and then […]
