Fall Update …

Our bulldog puppies:  Patchouli, Bergamot, Lil Wayne and Claudia … awwww!  They are 3 weeks old and too stinkin’ cute!  They play and wrestle with each other and are realizing there is more going on outside of their (pool) box. We closed our garden down and pulled our last vegetables, herbs and flower harvest.  I …

Meat Party – Take 2…

Yep … this time it was lasagna, ribs and BBQ rabbit.  Plus whatever sides I finally decided on.  We had my grandpa, uncle, my mother in law, and our youngest baby out for dinner.  Our boy will be leaving for additional USAF training in Texas soon, and will be gone for almost a year!  It …

Still Kicking …

We had family out to celebrate birthdays at what I lovingly referred to as the ‘Meat Party’ … We served beef ribs, homegrown chicken and rabbit … Doh!  (Along with many, many sides…)  I decorated with zinnias from my garden. Speaking of which, that garden is still producing! I’m pretty sure I will end with …

Anniversary Day

Yep, 32 years of wedded bliss.  We’ve been enjoying pool days just about every day.  Our garden continues to amaze with cucumbers (- look at that cucumber!), tomatoes, zucchini, patty pans, herbs (basil, sage and mint), beans and NOODLE BEANS … yep, we tried those for the first (successful) time this year.      I’ve finished …

Summertime 2022

I know – it’s been a bit.  But I am alive and kicking, and enjoying summer pool time, along with Chloe … So, to hit some highlights over the last few months: Our oldest son graduated from law school, and is presently in VA for tax law.  Our youngest (the twins) turned 25, and we …

I like this pace …

Cruisin’ along, getting stuff done, cleaning, making cards, playing with babies … I really could get used to this slower pace.  But, I’m ready for summer!  My garden is calling me ,,, Those teaser weather days really hit me. Anyway – I am making steady progress on the mess that is the studio.  I moved …

So now …

The dreaded taxes are done!  Yay!  So now, we can focus on the next job(s) … Our group project is refinishing the hardwood floors.  MY NEXT project is finding and CLEANING this studio.  I’m going to majorly shame myself and post a photo.  It shows just how cluttered I’ve become.  Gah!  In between, I will …

That time of year …

But first – here are some of the bulbs I made in the glass blowing class with my sister.  We had a great time, and now we’re looking at other classes to take. It is THAT time of year, so tax prep is well underway.  I’m hoping we can pull them together within the next …

Card-Mania Continues …

I’ve spent a bit of quality time in my studio, playing with paper.  DH and I were talking about working some of the area Farmers Markets this spring/summer … Right now I’m making cards, cards, and more cards …        Meanwhile, our hydroponics are still going strong.  I’m hoping to get some tomatoes …

So, Actually …

It turns out Babs is really (Mr.) Bugs – and our Miss Thumper has had babies!  OMGosh – how fun!  Here’s a quick pic of Mom and baby bunnies.   I’ve made a few cards, and I’m having a good time getting back into studio work.     We’ve also been playing with pottery.  Here …
