Yarn Overflow

We have started the hunt for a toy chest. Not for all the toys in the house ( we have none), but for all the yarn I have started accumulating this year. I have started to take over the cat’s (mostly unused) spot. The hubby was concerned Max (the cat) lost his lookout spot 😂.Continue reading “Yarn Overflow”

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

As I stared blankly at my pantry, wondering what to eat for breakfast, I started to look at my top shelf. It is the baking shelf. It is also the shelf where exotic flours go to die. I started shifting some items around and ended up finding cassava flour, almond flour, wheat flour, corn flour,Continue reading “Blueberry Lemon Muffins”

Pulling Out the Brushes

Even though I’m a former art teacher, I find myself rarely pulling out my paint brushes. I often feel guilty about that. I love painting, but it is a pain in the tushy to set up and clean up. I share the office with the hubby but it’s a little tight on space for anContinue reading “Pulling Out the Brushes”

Party in the Driveway

The last time I hung out with someone was close to Halloween! It is crazy to think about how long we’ve been in isolation. I am lucky to have friends who are just as cautious as I am, which puts my anxiety at ease over COVID. Our friends sit across from us on the driveway,Continue reading “Party in the Driveway”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

Purl One, Knit One

While waiting for yarn to come in for the scarf my dad requested, I decided to start a new project. I found out about a non-profit called Comfort for Critters. People can make small blankets and donate them to specific shelters. These blankets are used as beds for one of the animals at the shelter,Continue reading “Purl One, Knit One”

Hello, Hello Fresh!

Sam (the hubby) has been wanting to try Hello Fresh for a while. My In-laws and Sister-in law all order Hello Fresh and love it! They often sing it’s praises. Since there is a special for first timers, we thought we would try a week. We have only tried the first meal so far andContinue reading “Hello, Hello Fresh!”

Air Fryer

That’s right. I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve been reading about them for months, and even got one for the in-laws for Christmas! Well, I happened to see one while shopping with the hubby at Costco. I mentioned it to gage his interest, and wouldn’t you know it, the family shopping behind usContinue reading “Air Fryer”

Floating Shelves Finished!

Whew! It’s one of those projects that we expected to take a day or two that ended up taking about three weeks. We learned a lot along the way as well (ahem, mistakes were made). You see the floating shelves all over the internet, in home make-overs and Pinterest, but how do you do them?Continue reading “Floating Shelves Finished!”

Painted Lavender Pots Round 1

After looking at how wonderful the lavender is doing, I decided it was time to give them room to grow. I want my pretty lavender to continue to flourish and hopefully flower! I love my plain white ceramic pots because they have so much potential, but there were no holes in the bottom. Luckily, theContinue reading “Painted Lavender Pots Round 1”
