Friday Growing

Cooper is growing and is totally integrated into the family. He’s spunky and playful, yet loving and cuddly. It just depends on the time of day. Every morning he plays until about lunchtime, then he crashes. He’s the perfect fit for the family. Cooper says, “Happy Friday.” Enjoy your weekend!

Warm and Cozy 2023

Our new kitten is growing, healthy, and totally adjusted to his forever home. All the boys have adjusted to him being here, and the animal family is complete for now. Cooper has brought us the joy that we really needed after the terrible year we had last year. He’s the bright spot we all needed. He is a snuggle bug, but when it’s play … Read More Warm and Cozy 2023

Fall Has Arrived

It’s finally feeling like fall around here. The trees are changing and the temperatures are cooler. It’s been great for walks, porch sitting in the evening with a cup of coffee, and just being outside. The boys have really enjoyed being outside and exploring. Even our old man Baxter who is 14 now and having trouble waking at times wants to be out exploring … Read More Fall Has Arrived

Growing and Changing Spaces

Our baby chick’s are officially out in the coop with the big girls. They have their own space in the coop and are protected from the big girls,  but can see, hear,  and somewhat interact with each other. Before the big move the coop was cleaned and the babies spent some more time outside.  This was the closest the babies have been to the … Read More Growing and Changing Spaces

Hubby had a can of corned beef and I had some left over fries from dinner Friday and this dish was born. I rarely have left over fries, but I did today. Actually you could use any left over potatoes, but let’s stick with the … Read More French Fries Hash

Pan Pizza

To become a coffee person…

I’ve never been a coffee drinker. My parents never drank it growing up and I never had much exposure to trying it. When I did it wasn’t for me. But I’ve always enjoyed the smell of coffee. How each kind of coffee has the basic same base but the aromas are different. My husband has always been a coffee drinker. He’s the first person … Read More To become a coffee person…
