Easy French Ratatouille

The Hubby and I have been binge watching Hell’s Kitchen. You know, the tv show where Gordon Ramsey yells at everyone ( just kidding he does in all his shows)? While we were watching, ratatouille was mentioned and Sam ( the hubs) asked what it was. I said vegetables and he thought I mean aContinue reading “Easy French Ratatouille”

Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)

Woot woot! Here in Texas, phase 2 which is the general population for the COVID vaccine, opened up. The exact date was March 29. A very exciting day! I made sure to go online that night and check all of the possible places I could make an appointment. Naturally everyone was doing the same thing!Continue reading “Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)”

Spring Cleaning

The hubby and I decided to do a little spring cleaning the other day. And by that, I mean get rid of junk! We cleaned out the attic a bit, pulling down things we haven’t used in several years. A whole set of plate-ware we haven’t touched, old hats, a cat-scratched ottoman and more. ItContinue reading “Spring Cleaning”

First Wedding Anniversary

I couldn’t believe it! An entire year has gone by since the Hubby (Sam) and I got married. Sure we had been planning a wedding for a year, but due to the Pandemic, we never had the opportunity to go through with it. We ended up hurriedly getting a Justice of the Peace as theContinue reading “First Wedding Anniversary”

Passover 2021

Passover (Pesach in Hebrew), is a holiday that celebrates the Jews’ escape from Slavery. Miracles took place, but they still wandered the desert for 40 years until they reached Israel. This Passover passed much like 2020, in the house and zooming with the family. That being said, there was a lot more hope this year.Continue reading “Passover 2021”

Small Operation

I didn’t write last week due to an operation I had. The surgery was small and took less than an hour, but it really knocked me on my behind. The side effects were what got me. Luckily I was able to spend the week mostly sleeping and sitting zombie-like on the couch. The hubby wasContinue reading “Small Operation”

Strawberry Rosé Cake

Southern Living Magazine came out with a recipe that I simply couldn’t resist: Strawberry rosé cake. Yes I am supposed to be eating healthier, yes my hubby did give me the side-eye, haha, no it didn’t stop me! It looked and sounded so delicious in the magazine I gave in to it. And you knowContinue reading “Strawberry Rosé Cake”

St Patrick’s Day

When I think of St Patrick’s Day, I think of Ireland. It makes me smile with the memories of the wonderful time I had a few years ago when I visited with my sister. The country is absolutely breathtaking, the people lovely, and the music beautiful. Surprisingly, the food was good too. The brown bread,Continue reading “St Patrick’s Day”

Two More Lavender Pots Done!

I decorated two more ceramic pots which leaves me with two left to go. The last set of lavender did just fine in the transition and just moved to the backyard this week. Hopefully they will do ok with the new temperature fluctuations and (hopefully) more sun!

1st Comfort for Critters Complete

Well, it might be a tad narrow and the pattern certainly is messed up, but hopefully the kitties and puppies won’t mind. I can assure you that it is still very fluffy! So it should be comfortable for them to sleep with. I plan on making a few more and maybe will try the sameContinue reading “1st Comfort for Critters Complete”
