New Neighbor

Max (the cat) and I stepped outside this morning to enjoy some fresh air and check out the garden. When I turned to close the door I did a double take! Why is there a shell on our door? Wait, why is there a snail here?? Call me crazy, but when I think of shells,Continue reading “New Neighbor”

Hanging with my Parents

The final day before my parents left, we had plans to go to another large brewery with a farm. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right? Well I guess it was! We had been looking forward to exploring Vista Brewery, but after several days of lots of driving everyone agreed they were tired and needed aContinue reading “Hanging with my Parents”

Taking it Easy

One of the requests my parents had before they came down was to have time to just sit outside and relax. The hubby spent the day smoking a brisket for dinner, meanwhile my dad made banana pancakes for breakfast. I haven’t had pancakes in forever! Yum! Our plan for the rest of the day wasContinue reading “Taking it Easy”

Dad’s Scarf

Whew! Finished it just in the nick of time! My parents are set to arrive in about a week and I owed them each a scarf. My mom’s scarf was finished weeks ago but I sort of lost some steam after. When I finally got my focus back, I went looking for the right yarn.Continue reading “Dad’s Scarf”

Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

Fresh, Dry and Warm

What could I be describing? Bath towels! Brand new ones to be precise. You know you’re getting old when bath towels excite you… While looking around the house, we noticed the ragtag assortment of hand towels, bath towels and face towels, all in an assortment of black, grey, pink and red. Lovely. We had toContinue reading “Fresh, Dry and Warm”

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”

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”

Firewood Without the Fire Pit

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”
