it’s snowing in the kitchen

The snowflakes are up in the kitchen. Fifteen or so hang from the 12′ ceiling on mirrored strings and my snowflake ornament collection hangs on the window garlands. Hanging the ceiling snowflakes. Snowflake ornament collection. Looks so festive! ~~Rhonda 🙂

kitchen helper

My old mixer bit the dust, so I bought a new one. Heavier duty model in a lovely cornflower blue. Love it! (Shopping amazon is so easy!) In this pic, it’s ready for the first batch of bread I made in it. I’m looking forward to trying lots of new recipes! If I just had […]

it’s snowing in the kitchen!

Sunday afternoon, DH found time to hang the snowflakes in the kitchen. It’s hard to get a picture that does justice to the kitchen ceiling after they are all up, but here are a couple of DH at work. The ceiling is 12′ high, so the snowflakes hang on mirrored garlands of different lengths, the […]

decorating the kitchen

My sister Genny and DD did a lot of the decorating in the kitchen this past weekend while I worked on other things. Brooke had helped me on Friday and we put up new garlands as the old ones were shedding terribly. I made each one long enough to fit each window so they will […]

gotta new fridge

We’ve had a lot of trouble with the old refrigerator. It finally died on Wednesday, and we ordered a new one. DH picked it up today. I didn’t even clean up the mess before taking a picture. ~~Rhonda 🙂

chicken and noodles

DD was excited to try her hand at making the noodles for supper for last night. After simmering the chicken (in enough water to cover, with some dry onion, garlic, celery seed, about 1 tsp basil, 2 tsp chicken bouillon, and salt and pepper), I diced it and returned it to the broth, which I […]

wanna be…clutter free

Today I worked on some of the kitchen cabinets, “decluttering” and sorting and putting away. I didn’t take a before picture of the cabinet over the stove, but here are some of the things that came out of it. They are now wrapped and in a box for charity. If my kids want any of […]

the last of winter, the first of spring

I have a vase of forsythia on my kitchen table. Such a beautiful preview of spring. It’s on its way, even for those of us with freezing weather, snow, winter… Next to the forsythia is the last of our amaryllis blooms. They were at their best while we were in New Orleans last week. Eight […]

kitchen snowflakes

The kitchen is decorated with snowflakes and icicles. This collection continues to grow. Each year new ones are added and older plastic snowflakes are removed. We have four south facing windows and two east facing windows, all topped with a garland that is lit with blue and white lights. The snowflake ornaments hang from the […]

kitchen garland – going up!

Last night DH put the garland up in the kitchen. Standing on the counter is the only way to do it. The next step is to add the snowflakes. We’ve had some frosts, so the geraniums came in. Not sure where they are going to end up, but they are so pretty right now that […]
