Can I make you all green with envy?
Tuesday, July 09, 2013      21 comments

Tonight DH and I podded the second batch of peas and snapped the second picking of yellow wax beans. As the tilapia was baking in the oven, I blanched and froze 5 quart bags of each. We will need to pick the peas and beans again tomorrow. ... Read more
Okay, vacation time is over
Monday, July 08, 2013      20 comments

I really enjoyed not having to work for 4 days but you pay a price for it come Monday. As usual, it was a real humdinger of a day! More to do than hours in the day but I did what I could and it will always be there tomorrow. At least the... Read more
We just beat the rain

DH and I were working in the garden and discussing when we should pick the peas and beans again. I had already cut all the lettuce and had plenty of bags left so I started with the green beans, finished the purple beans and headed for the ... Read more

I always plant the Easter lilies from church beside the house. Look what bloomed in time for our anniversary! Enjoy! These were from 2 years ago. I hope to keep them goin... Read more
A very full day and a wonderful surprise
Friday, July 05, 2013      19 comments

Up before the crack of dawn and it was a peaceful morning with no more fireworks. The people camping across the street had cleaned up the entire area and it looks lovely. Only one camper remains. DH and I ate breakfast at the café, then ve... Read more
Did it work to leave early?
Thursday, July 04, 2013      12 comments

Yes and no. We were barely started spreading the grass clippings that our friend left us for the garden when I had to go back to the office to research a new car and insurance costs for a client. Short and sweet. Back to the garden for a... Read more
The temptation is there, but do I dare
Wednesday, July 03, 2013      17 comments

close the office early today? I think I could because it has been pretty quiet. I know I will be back at work on Friday so I will ask DH in my sweetest voice, "pretty, please". LOL! I am sure he will be thinking it is a good idea as we sel... Read more
Happy July 2nd
Tuesday, July 02, 2013      14 comments

The 4th will be here before we know it. Firecrackers are popping all over town, rockets and aerial displays light up the night sky. And we can continue to use fireworks until July 7th. That should make the kids happy. I spent 2 hours at ... Read more
Wishful Thinking
Monday, July 01, 2013      19 comments

I would like to put Mister Mantis away but I think it will be a summer-long relationship. If it rains, the weeds will come again. LOL! Other wishful thinking-a Monday that doesn't come back to haunt me when it becomes a Tuesday. I have b... Read more
Second day of the family reunion
Sunday, June 30, 2013      12 comments

The numbers were a little better today. None of the Michigan cousins could attend this year but we have hopes they will be able to in 2 years. We had several new cousins that came so that was a plus for all of us. The food choices were exc... Read more
First day of the reunion
Saturday, June 29, 2013      20 comments

A much smaller group gathered today. The farmers are all cutting hay so they may be there tomorrow. I made my breakfast brunch casserole with my fresh eggs and goat milk. I added bacon, onion and shredded cheddar cheese. It was delicious a... Read more
Tapping into my reserves
Friday, June 28, 2013      16 comments

Today started way to early with an ambulance run at 3:10 am. It was scary for the man's wife, as he has had heart issues for years. We made the long drive to his hospital of choice so he could see his own doctor. It was an uneventful trip ... Read more
Planning for the weekend

DH's family has a 2 day reunion this weekend. Those of us who live close to the site are to bring hot dishes for brunch on Saturday and Sunday's lunch. That means I have to plan something that can be taken and kept hot. I am planning to ma... Read more

This is to show you what the Mantis can do. We still have to go through the potatoes but that will be another evening's worth of work. ... Read more
I'm calling it sweat equity!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      7 comments

As I told FROSTY99 on her page, all the inside and outside improvements to our home can be called sweat equity. The workouts and the physical labor involved are worth it. As I look at the garden now, I realize all the long hours are wor... Read more
