We bought a thing …

Yep – a 5th wheel/camper.  It’s beautiful and I love it!  Here are some pictures.  We have some plans for this home on wheels … but we’ll get into that another day.    Linda had her babies yesterday … four gorgeous new additions.  So far she’s settling into motherhood well, and likes her extra calories …

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 …

Because I Knew …

I knew I needed a tetanus shot, so OBVIOUSLY the best way to get that is to swan dive out of one’s pool to perform a [9.3 … 9.1 …9.6 … 9.2 … 9.4 – the judges have scored …] FACE-PLANT onto a cement paver outside of said pool.  Yep, that tetanus shot was mine, …

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 …

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 …

A Little of This …

So, today’s update is more about photo sharing – with a little of this and that thrown in … I’m creating in the glass studio again.  I had a request for some rose night lights and spoon rests.  And, I’m playing with an idea for these gnome ornaments and glass paints … we’ll see if …

Another Update and Welcoming 2022 …

Oh my goodness, 2021 went out with a bang!  There is a big work story that I’m not quite ready to share, but we can cover Christmas, food/recipes, clay studio, other life stories and cute photos.  So – here we go … Prepping for Christmas 2021, DH and I opted for more-than-not homemade gifts.  So, …

Indian Summer–I’ll Take It!!!

We started this past week off with a huge batch of seafood alfredo – enjoyed by both of us as we worked through the weekend.  And then, this week – while pulling together a quick salad of spinach, carrots, peas, water chestnuts, romaine and a mayo-style dressing, I decided to shave off a few deep …
