Uncovering…

I have not shared pictures of our home.  I had wanted to wait until it was completed and looked like a spread in a home and garden magazine.  I don’t think that will happen in the near future. Everyone talks about the joys of home ownership and most of the time it is talked aboutContinue reading “Uncovering…”

A Blustery Day…

I love winter.  I really do.  I love the cold, the wind and whatever is thrown at us in precipitation.  Snow, rain, ice, it’s all wonderful. Today is a blustery day.  Yes, I know, I live in the south.  It can’t be that blustery.  But, yes, it is a blustery day today. I just cameContinue reading “A Blustery Day…”

The Progression of Decorating a Front Porch…

Hubby and I are late getting Christmas decorating done.  I had started a bit last week.  I put our dog’s bow tie (red) on his collar.  He is now ready for Christmas.  He looks dapper. I went outside and decorated our mailbox.  It looks pretty good.  Except for the fire ant mound at the baseContinue reading “The Progression of Decorating a Front Porch…”

A Big Loop…

Towards the end of October Hubby and I went on an adventure.  We set off with our little dog, a tent, an air mattress, and some supplies.  We went north a bit and then straight across Interstate 40.  Each night we stopped, set up our tent (not without a lot of grumbling from yours truly),Continue reading “A Big Loop…”

Could it be possibly be?

I really dislike warm weather.  I was excited to go to San Diego at first because I was leaving the 90 degree temps that are so common here in South Carolina in September. I was excited until I realized that San Diego was hot also. I felt like I couldn’t escape from the heat.  UponContinue reading “Could it be possibly be?”

A Memory of My Dad…

I have several memories of my Dad, as we all do.  Some good, some not so great.  There is one memory that stands out to me this day. I remember one Saturday night going to see the movie 101 Dalmatians which, having just looked it up, was released in 1961.  It must have been aroundContinue reading “A Memory of My Dad…”

A Job well Done…

We live in an area surrounded by oak trees and pine trees.  The ice storm a couple of weeks ago brought down several pine branches which were hauled away last week. This week hubby and I started yard work.  He went and mowed the first of the weeds  at the beginning of the week.  IContinue reading “A Job well Done…”

On an Adventure…

It seems so strange to not have to write a post today and yet, all day I kept feeling like I was missing something.   This morning we took our little puppy to spend the weekend with two of his friends, Hank and Clark.  He will play and run with them while hubby and IContinue reading “On an Adventure…”

Sunday Observations…. 31 Days of Observing

31 Days Observing  Today is Sunday.  A busy day with church and cleaning up after church and getting on with your day.  Today it is a fall day.  It is a bit overcast and it feels like fall.  I love days like this.  Neighbors are working in their yards, decorating their porches.  It feels likeContinue reading “Sunday Observations…. 31 Days of Observing”
