Ok, I had to buy these but you have to start somewhere. It’s like replacing paper towels with cloth napkins – replacing paper towels with cotton towels for cleaning the countertops, bathrooms, etc. I’ve even replaced clothes detergent with soap nuts. Now it’s time to start on food. I bought oregano, chives, mint, sage and already have the garlic and rosemary. Have you bought any … Continue reading Herbs!
Our daughter asked us to go to a very advertised pumpkin patch just outside of Temple. We couldn’t turn her down as we seldom go anywhere at all and being with her is nice. My husband (her dad) just had a pain shot in his hip this past week and it’s still bothering him, but he did his best. We got lost but that is … Continue reading Pumpkin Patch and Dirt

Paper towels is one convenience I totally took control of. I use them for … Continue reading Conservationists/Climate Control/Green and Everything Else
The things in life that excite me would bore a normal person. I know it and I understand it, but this is the way I am. Let’s get excited over little stuff! I was on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago just looking through “stuff” and accidentally found homemade vanilla extract . Who would have thought you can make your own vanilla extract? Definitely not … Continue reading Vanilla!
I worked off and on all week to make these little people – along with a redo on a table, two new hats and I decorated the house for Fall. I love Fall! It’s still in the 90’s in Central Texas, but in my mind I’m waiting for a crisp morning, cooler days and for the leaves to take over the yard. I’m looking forward … Continue reading Halloween Ghouls
