~Messy~

Well it’s not only kind of messy, it’s a real mess messy. Things are getting repainted and I am adding texture to the walls so this is my pull up a seat spot for the next couple of weeks. I keep having words with the painters about not pushing my desk into me while I…

~Kind Of Cute~

Here’s Witch Green Thumb. She comes out once a year and pulls up a seat anywhere she deems fitting. She’s done with her flying days but she still gets around and can have some attitude. You can kind of see that here with her giving me the stink eye. She wasn’t going to move over…

~Oatmeal Strawberry Banana Blend Smoothie ~

For many, oatmeal isn’t something you think of drinking but if you blend the oats finely in the blender before adding the ingredients, you won’t even think of them being there when drinking it. With all the added ingredients it becomes a rich, healthy and vegan smoothie. *That makes me sound like I’m one of…

~Swinging & Singing~

Pull up a seat, swing and sing. This oak has been determined to be between 200-300 years old and has been registered so we love it. Most of the big oaks on the property are at least that age and they are the perfect trees to sit under and relax for awhile. Robust, strong, and…

~Fall~

Inside Autumn has arrived on the calendar. Mr. Creepy came out of the shed last week and now the pumpkins have found their place inside among other little do dads for the Fall days. And even though it is triple digits here today, dried up leaves and pumpkins are very welcome to get the mood…

~Mr. Creepy Pulls Up A Seat~

Via his homestead in the Tuff Shed, Mr. Creepy has arrived on his new seasonal chair. If you recall The Pine Throne post, we had to cut a tree down on the property and I had the guys make a seat for upcoming garden travelers. Mr. Creepy has decided it is his for the season…

~Short Ribs~

Make a pot of savory short ribs and bring those comforting memories on! We actually had our first 2 guests over for dinner since COVID started hunkering us down. My sister and brother in-law came over and we cooked up a batch of short ribs, made a nice salad, a honey cake and had a…

~The Beer Garden Crew~

Sometimes taking a walk around the gardens is worthy. I noticed a few things today. This guy decided to pull up a seat and grab a beer right on top of the moss and stein. Gotta love a sloppy gnome. Here’s a fellow getting off work and heading toward the beer gardens. He’s trouble, I…

Basic Cupcake

Here’s your basic go-to light golden cupcake recipe you will use over and over in many different ways. You can fill this cupcake or just frost it. Slice it with a little powdered sugar and top with berries. I have used this recipe for centuries *joke* and still enjoy adding this and that’s to it,…

~Vinyl Memories In Check~

After the material on this bench went kaput, it was time to not only update it but give it some weather proofing material. Getting tired of taking cushions off every night and then putting them back on in the morning, prompted the lazy in me for another material type for the outdoors. So against everything…

~Insta Cheesecake~

Why yes, yes I did make a cheesecake in an Instant Pot and I liked it…

~Bench At The Old Man Tree~

This little bench was found under some brush at the bottom of the yard. So it got some cleaning and a new spot for the lizard to pull up a seat. It is always a hike to get here and there on this property so when this was found it had to go where I…
