~Garden Visitors~

The fires sure have given us more visits to the gardens. These guys were here last year and it was good to see them again. This one stuck around long enough for me to grab the camera after noticing him through my dirty, ashy window. There were two but this one was right close by…

~A New Year~

It is time to welcome the New Year in and hopefully this year will be a lot brighter than the last. It sure was a hectic mess. The pandemic seems never ending so I am determined to continue to do my part and pull up a seat at home, wear a mask when out, and…

~Tis The Season~

Tis the season to decorate, of course eat and then make merriment. It is a bit different this year in Sheckyville, but we have gotten used to COVID restrictions and all we want now is to stay healthy and get rid of that nasty, deathly virus worldwide. We are doing our part and it is…

~Squash Soup & Biscuits~

It is not hard to make soup out of squash but just in case you have never tried it, this is how easy it is. In fact, any Winter squash you wish to use and any liquid can be substituted here in this recipe. It is one of my *anything goes* recipes that is simple,…

~Work Comforts~

Every room has a comfort zone here at Sheckyville. It has been a standard since I had my first apartment to have a spot or two to just flop in. Furniture makes that happen and normally a corner of the room will nook it up a few notches for that comfortable feeling. Putting out special…

~Orange Syrup~

Soft Boil From Mrs. Shecky’s Kitchen. Enjoy. Mrs. Shecky

~The Grandparents Room~

It has been one heck of a past few weeks with changing a couple of rooms around and getting more storage and craft space, but it has been accomplished. Moving the work desk to another area to keep the ugly out of sight has left space for a bedroom originally planned and a great place…

~Banana Muffins~

One of the first things I learned to bake was banana bread. I have been baking it since I learned how to treat myself with homemade cakes and breads and love nuts in mine. My husband just to happens to love it too, but not so much with nuts. So I am giving you my…

~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…
