Weekend

May 15, 2011


As I type I hear the tap-tap-tap of the rain hitting the roof.
It's been a wet weekend.
Great for the garden though.

Wilma {pictured above} is feeling better.
She just wasn't herself last week.
It seemed a little touch and go for a while.
No symptoms that could determine a diagnosis from my library of chicken books.
She just wasn't right.
She's up and around, seeming to be her old self again.
Fingers crossed all is well.

Oliver and Emerson had an exhausting Saturday.
Our veterinarian had an open house.
We took the two of them.
Oliver has had some issues with other dogs lately.
They did very good though.
They had lots of cookies, met lots of dogs and Oliver found a girlfriend who couldn't stop kissing him.
A little pug named Sally.
She was a girl on the go.  Made him look lazy.
We had shirts made {photo below} because we love our Dr. Lori.

With the rain going on outside there was no good excuse to not clean the house today.
Bummer.

Tonight is the smell of chicken parmesan cooking and cinnamon rolls baking in the oven.
An odd mix, but wonderful.
Yesterday I made Crispy Coconut Cookies for lunchbox treats this week.
I'll get the recipe up this week.
Jay made his breakfast specialty this morning.
Cereal.
He pours a mean bowl!

Started reading a new book - Farmer Jane.
Hoping to get a chance next weekend to read more.

That was our weekend.
How was yours?

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

8 Steps To Creating Your Own Simple Homemade Life

January 18, 2018

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018


When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
