Love the Simple Life
Focusing on Finding Happiness in the Simple Things
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”
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”
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”
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!”
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”
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!”
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”
I’m not sure exactly when I started this blog, maybe it’s been three months? All I can say is that I am very excited to have reached over 100 followers on WordPress! I know, I know, I’m no influencer. But that’s ok, I am so thankful for all of you who have been reading andContinue reading “100 Followers!”
Over the weekend the hubby and I got out the saw and we cut up some fallen tree limbs to burn. We were so excited to use the wood ( and dry out the furniture), that we ended up breaking the chiminea (ceramic fire pit)! As we started to move the fire pit, it justContinue reading “Firewood Without the Fire Pit”
I finished my third scarf. My mom had requested one to match her hat, which is a light tan color so I ended finding a yarn that matched ( I hope) but was much finer than I had used before. In the beginning I struggled with several different types of needles and casting on withContinue reading “Momma’s Scarf”
