~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…

~Lounge Seating~

The mini housing estates are over in this direction on the property and this lounge is a planned spot for pulling up a seat while working on them. I’ve had it for centuries it seems and it is all chipped and worn, but for some reason I can’t get rid of it. This part, as…

~Wicker Seating~

~Someone is sitting in the shade today…that would be me. ~ Me

~The Roundabout Bench~

On the pathway down the hill is this little roundabout. We put the bench there for those long walks back down from the hill above. The birds like to hang out in the trees and scuffle on the ground for food. It is a good spot to sit and just listen. Dig the dirt and…

~The Pine Throne~

Another place to pull up a seat for the fairies and gnomes. It is too sticky for humans but it will work just fine. We had to cut a pine down *sigh*. It was just in the wrong place for the electricity and the winds were due to blow it down. It was also to…
