Much to do…

I took last week off as I just was not in writing mode. I have been busy with the garden, of course. Here’s proof… That batch is from over a week ago. The carrots are long since eaten…yum…along with the okra and that big Soldacki tomato there on the lower right. I have a gallon…

Gardening and a recipe…

I’ve been feeling off this week. The general consensus is it’s allergies. Dust is really high on the allergy chart. That’s what we get for living in the wheat state. I haven’t gotten around to doing any actual stitching today, so no new photos. Just photos of the garden and an easy recipe to share….

Hmmmmm…..

With such an event-FULL weekend, I’m finding it hard to decide what to talk about. I guess I’ll start with the gift H surprised me with Friday. It was a gift that almost didn’t happen. One of H’s co-workers foisted it upon him as he was leaving the office, insisting that I would like it….

It’s sunny and warm…

Wow, some days it’s hard to think of a title. So, there you go. It’s sunny and warm today. I might get in the pool. Twobie and Archie had a bit of fun inside this morning, just moments before I booted them outdoors. It’s amazingly hard to capture a good photo of a kitten with…

Another repeat day…

It’s cold and rainy…again… Lucky for me the ducks are doing better with their separation anxiety, so I have managed to be inside most of the day without too much noise from them. I made rissolesĀ for the second time today. Here is the first batch… They are pretty good. H and I nearly demolished that…

Honey dreams…

We were at Costco the other day and guess what they are selling? Beehive kits! I told H I really wanted one…he continues to remain in a state of disbelief. You have cats AND ducks and you want bees, too? Well, yes, yes I do. (And a dog, in case you forgot!) Yesterday we were…

Look what I did…

I didn’t mean for it to happen. I didn’t plan for it to happen. It just happened… Seriously, it was an innocent trip to Orscheln (pronounced Orsh-lin here because no one knows how to say Orscheln. They simply call it Tractor Supply in Oklahoma!)…Orscheln, the only store in town that just happens to have a…

Birds, bees and…ducks…

The past week has felt like spring. I’ve had a few bees buzzing around me in the backyard, likely in search of blossoms. (That’s a photo from last spring.) The only thing I’ve seen blooming so far is shepherd’s purse which is an herb that has a little white globe-type blossom. But after nearly an…
