Love the Simple Life
Focusing on Finding Happiness in the Simple Things
There is a really cool place here in Austin called Craft. It is a crafter’s dream. All of the art supplies you could dream of and more, are super organized in large studio. The best part? You get to have fun, be creative, make a mess but don’t have to clean it up after!! TheContinue reading “Craft”
Having my sister around is a perfect excuse to get together with even more family! A first cousin, once removed and her husband live on the opposite end of Austin from us, and another first cousin twice removed recently moved here. Got that? No? Neither did I. Here’s a chart: Whatever their relation to us,Continue reading “Family BBQ”
We’ve kept in touch over zoom, google hangouts, text and phone calls, but it has been about a year and a half since we’ve seen each other. Whoa! We’re keeping it a pretty chill week especially because of the heat right now, but it has been awesome to just hang out, chat and make funContinue reading “My Sister is here!”
Today, Max ( my cat) seemed really bored. He kept following me and the hubby around all day. I felt bad because I wasn’t giving him as much attention as he wanted. He was bored because the weather has been so hot. Normally we let him take naps in the garage ( he loves thatContinue reading “I Spy With My Little Eye…”
Ever heard that expression? That’s the way it’s been feeling this week. I know, I know, I live in Texas. But have you read the news this week? Or maybe you live in the Western part of the US and know what I’m talking about? Yeah. There’s a heat wave going on. I know itContinue reading “You Could Fry an Egg on the Sidewalk”
When my Mother-in-Law asked me to make her some doorknob covers, I said, huh? I didn’t know that was a thing! I started googling ( after I said yes, of course), and found it’s quite common for several reasons: to keep naughty children from opening doors they shouldn’t, decoration, and wall dents/scratches. Apparently my MILContinue reading “Doorknob Covers”
Over the weekend the hubby and I enjoyed an antiques and crafts show. I never thought I’d say this, but the show was poppin! There were lines to get in the door, a live band, food trucks, and crazy amounts of people! Who knew it would be the hottest place in town? I have toContinue reading “Vintage Market Days”
I was wandering the internets looking for something make using my tomatoes. Nothing too complex or that uses meat. Something that would fill me up and be delicious. I came upon a tomato, basil and caramel used onion Quiche that I decided to go with. You can find it here: https://themodernproper.com/tomato-basil-and-caramelized-onion-quiche I opted to goContinue reading “Tomato Recipe #3”
Ok, to be fair, this isn’t a recipe. It’s not complicated nor does it use a lot of ingredients. It’s basically just a Caprese salad. Instead of Mozzarella I used Burrata, which is almost like Mozzarella but creamier on the inside. I then drizzled some Balsamic Reduction on top and called it a day. WhenContinue reading “Tomatoe Recipe #2”
Now that I’ve started harvesting my lovely tomatoes, I need to figure out what to do with them all before they go bad! Tonight I kept it simple, making spaghetti with tomato sauce. I chopped up about 4 tomatoes and tossed them in to a sauce pan with vegetable broth. I let that cook forContinue reading “Tomato Recipe #1”
