recipes…coming soon!

— February 27, 2016

I have not added any recipes to my new website here because I am in “thinking” mode. I have a whole bunch of dreamy recipes on my previous site called “Just Like Perfect!” and I will eventually go through them to see what deliciousness I can bring over here in addition to creating a…


my no good awkwardly bad hair days

— February 25, 2016

Since my blog post about my forgetful week and having my wee ones with me on their long weekend vacation (in “I gave my cat a cupcake“) things have taken a turn. My wee ones are no longer in the spotlight, I am. Rather, my hair is and it’s quite awkward. In addition…


my first watercolor, a radish

— February 24, 2016

Ok, it’s not really my first watercolor. I did do watercolors in school and I do it with my kids, but this is my first attempt at drawing with watercolors and writing with watercolors for my new adventure to discover my artsy/craftsy loves and new talents. My brother gave me an artist’s paint…


BBQ Spice Rub Burgers

— February 22, 2016

What’s in your spice cabinet? Mine is pretty full because I have a love affair with the Milwaukee Spice House and they are pretty much a safe bet for me for any gifting moment that comes up and they are always on my wish list. But…despite all of those fabulous spices, I had…


shopping in my kitchen

— February 21, 2016

Selecting my morning coffee mug gives me great pleasure and is something that I look forward to every day bright and early. “Hmmm…what mood am I in today?” The weather, time of year and even my plans for the morning all affect my decision. (Yes, there are still Christmas-themed mugs in there. I…


i gave my “cat” a cupcake

— February 20, 2016

Not really. But I found myself muttering that about my daughter today as I was vacuuming up crushed cereal that was all over the kitchen table and the floor. Settle in…I’m about to go into “story mode”. Every so often “life on the farm” (meaning my 24/7 stay-at-home parenting job) provides enough fodder that…


banana citrus salad

— February 19, 2016

Bananas are tricky business in our house of 5. Some like them, some don’t and some do…kinda. I am one of the “kinda” banana lovin’ folks in my house, but this Banana Citrus Salad is one way that I will always eat my bananas. The tartness and texture of the mandarin oranges and…


“spring flower” note card

— February 18, 2016

I was on a kick for a bit drawing with crayons and designing note cards. This is my “spring flower” note card. Very timely because I know that spring is just around the corner, even though I am still enjoying winter. As a matter of fact, we are supposed to hit the high’s…


“no bones about it” note card

— February 15, 2016

One of the items that I have been dabbling in creating are note cards, since I lovvvvveeeee note cards. Here is my “no bones about it” card… The cookie was for my wee ones 3rd birthday and he remembered that’s what it was for. So cute. I actually did not remember. I’m like…


Beekman 1802 Heirloom Rose Lotion & Soap

— February 14, 2016

The rose scent reminds me of my great-grandmother so I was drawn to the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Rose scented Lotion and Soap. I picked some up for myself when I ordered it to give as gifts for the holidays. (It just occurred to me that I probably love “gifting” so much because quite…
