As I type tonight it is drizzly and dark.  Yesterday, however, was sunny and warm allowing me to finish my planting of the garden.  This week there is a chance of rain everyday, so the garden will be well watered.

We are eating tons of asparagus - that, lettuce and carrots are the only things ready to eat.  I always do a late plant of carrots in the fall in time for them to grow a bit and then go dormant.  They are then covered for the winter and at the very start of spring, as soon as the ground thaws, they begin growing and voila - we have carrots about the time the garden is ready to be planted.

The animals are starting to get used to our new schedule, with me being home, and after a week and a half of their exhaustion from supervising my every move, I'm finally allowed to accomplish some {not all} tasks on my own while they nap.  This week I'll be busy spreading 6 yards of mulch in between rain showers.  Hopefully they'll allow me to get that done without too much supervision.

I won the cutest little bag {pictured above} last week.  Tammy from Our Neck Of The Woods had a giveaway of this adorable bag made by Jackie at Born Ambitious Born Imaginative and I won.  Thanks so much ladies!

Can I tell you about a yummy find from Trader Joe's?  If you shop at that store and you like to grill burgers on the grill, can I highly recommend the frozen Kobe Burgers?  On a whim while shopping with my mom last week I bought a box of two.  We had them for dinner last night and they were moist, juicy, and delicious.  They are not small - each patty is about 1/2 pound of beef, and they are so worth it.

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread

November 07, 2017


It's pumpkin season and this may be a perfect way to put it to good use.  This bread is light on pumpkin flavor but super moist and extremely delicious.  You can also freeze pumpkin puree measured into 1 c. containers to make this throughout the winter.  


I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017



Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this year........it was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
