What's For Dinner?
Here's what we've been eating the last few days.... Pizza.  Garlic Naan smothered with herbed goat cheese, fresh corn, asparagus and onions.   Shrimp kabobs. Cheese burgers and fresh grilled corn. Cauliflower steaks.  New to us and surprisingly good!  They ...

In The Autism World Lately
Alex just doesn't like these ketchup bottles!  He doesn't care if the label is upside down, just don't have the thing standing on it's cap! He's been known to peak inside the refrigerator just to make sure it's standing the 'right' way. ha. ♥

Summer Foyer Table
My chalk board still said "Welcome Spring!", so I thought I'd better get into the summer spirit since   we're already five days into the new season!  A patriotic theme just seemed to fit, with  Independence Day and Labor Day practically  being the end caps ...

Sunshine.  It's been glorious today after days and days of downpours.  More rain from Tropical Storm Bill is on it's way, though! Rain makes things grow.   Really grow.  I even see a red tomato out in the garden winking at me.  Must go pick it! Do you ever ...

This And That
Yep, still raining!  But there are up sides to this.  We haven't had to water some new grass with the sprinkler too many times, I haven't had to weed the gardens, and when you want to sleep late on Saturday, mid morning still feels dark as night! ha. Can't ...

Vintage-Look Bakery Sign
I felt like doing something on the creative side today, so I thought I'd try my hand at making a vintage looking painted bakery sign. I started off with an auction trash wood sign.  I chose this one because I liked the beveled edge, it was the right size an...

Around Here, Lately
Captain Socks. My new friend, Mr. Toad.  Marmalade was posing with him outside on the back porch and I thought it was a huge, dead mouse.  But it was this large toad, totally unharmed!  I moved him to the window well on the other side of the house where toa...

Sunshine After The Rain
While it was pouring rain last week, the cats spent most of their time on the back porch watching rain drops and napping. When that got boring, they amused themselves inside, playing  relay races, leap frog or a combination of both! When the 'moat' started ...

So, I Painted Today...
I had a very large painting on canvas that I didn't care for, so today I hung it on the wall in my laundry room and painted over it!  I wanted a gray-themed picture so I pulled out all the grays and white buckets of wall paint from the closet, a few brushes...

What's For Dinner?
Here's what we've been eating lately. Easy stuff like grilled meat, salads and sandwiches. I enjoy photographing food.  It stands still and you don't have to try to get it to smile! ha. ♥

I'm Betsy, . . . eternal optimist . . mother of 4 sons, including and a set of triplets with autism . . owner of a home based business . .auctioneer clerk . . previous repo girl . . budding photographer . . multi-tasker . . bird watcher , , and wonder woman wannabe.
Bragging rights
Used to repo cars for a living. Now I round up feral cats in my neighborhood, have them fixed and find them a good home. "Home" turns out to be mine, since I can't seem to give any up. :) Since I already had parakeets and a rabbit who runs loose in the house, my home is now affectionately known at The Zoo. Add 5 men living with me, and that's a good name for it!
