Love the chaps! Glad that the switcheroo worked out!
And I have been thinking about the Oso victims as well. Just heart-breaking!
Sledding at Mt Baker with my brother and nephew, 2009:                        After a couple hours, Z had enough.   He was tired of crashing and losing his gloves.  And cold.  We he...

I'm an admitted Amish fiction junky and I have learned many "bloom where you are planted" lessons through reading these and other Amish-inspired blogs and books.  Thanks for the great thoughts and inspiration. :)
Some of my earliest memories of my dad include me "helping him" wash the car. He remains a frequent car washer. My mom mentioned recently that he washed their new Buick twice in the same day. So I have very vivid memories, pr...

I've never bought a lottery ticket. I suck at gambling.
Thanks for sharing this week Laura! xo
   Linking with Random 5 Friday at A Rural Journal.    * Since we've been redoing that front fencing, the horses have been gated out of that whole area.  In the past, before the front exterior dutch doors on the stalls we...

Good job on the turtle cake. I would have taken it to a taxidermist to preserve for posterity! :)

Wood ash on rhubarb? How is it I don't know about this?
Just LOVE that the weather's been sunny yesterday and today and that there's a couple hours of daylight after I get home.  Let the work begin!!  Well, there's always work and chores done in the evenings but now there's the st...

Chuckling at the wild turkey adventure -- we've had similar ones here thanks to Shane. Roasted Beaver anyone? I ain't kidding.
When I was a kid, my two grandmas were distinguished by size. We had "Big Gram" and "Little Gram." This is Little Gram. I don't remember Little Gram being a good cook. In fact, the single worst food crime I've witnessed in my...

I've totally fallen off the "no sugar, no gluten, no nothin'" wagon lately. These look really good!
During the dark days of my FODMAP elimination, I felt like I couldn't eat anything. Simultaneously cutting lactose, fructose, and wheat out of my diet left me with my choice of corn or rice. As long as they weren't combined w...

Totally great way to recycle -- I've used tp tubes as little seed starters...
I'm finding myself with a lot of craft opportunities of late. Through church, where I'm helping to plan Vacation Bible School (VBS), and my daughter's Girl Scout troop, I'm entertaining kids with scissors and paper and glue. ...

I kinda view gumbo as a "throw in what you've got" stew... which is prolly not correct. Glad you are no longer afraid of the roux... :)
For a while, Julia was into watching and re-watching certain movies over and over again. There was a Barbie & A Mermaid Tale phase and a Hunchback of Notre Dame phase (that was weird). For years, she seemed impervious to havi...

I've used the Betty Crocker recipe for many years -- hey, it's all good! :)
Homemade pizza dough was the very first thing I ever made on my own when I was still a wee teenager living with my parents. The recipe was from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and is the same basic dough recipe I still use. That "dou...

We had a male cardinal and a male oriole do the same thing -- I finally had to  put up some kind of barrier on the window to block the reflection -- they are persistent! Cute video. :)
Luke, the watchdog A few Sundays ago, I heard something tapping at our dining room window. It was constant, an insistent tap that was quite creepy. All alone in the house, I summoned my courage (and this guy) to find the sour...
