Finally Fall!

I have to say that I am more than excited that summer is officially over! So I made an apple pie to celebrate Equinox...YUM! Crowds are gone, school is back in session (days are quiet in the neighborhood again) the temps have been dropping and the rain has returned! Look empty beaches! Even though the...

South Sound

For the most part this past weekend was very low key. Nothing to do, nowhere to go. So we decided to keep it close to home and just explore some areas that we had seen but never been. The plan was to scout out the path around Capitol Lake to see if it was something... Continue Reading →

Good Bye July

I know it isn't officially August yet, however I am more than ready to move on. Overall we didn't do much in July...atleast nothing that was photo worthy I guess. I think it is the fact that for the most part it isn't our favorite season...we like the cool and rainy. But that doesn't mean... Continue Reading →

Woodland Wonderland

As a child I had dreamt of mossy woods, deep dark forests, underbrush so thick and plush it could be a bed. I blame it on my love of classic fairy tales, the Black Forest & an obsession of mushrooms. As a teen I visited the PNW for the first time. Not only was it... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Cookies

After living in "high altitude" for 4 years and having nothing turn out quite right. I am happy to once again be closer to sea level and having my recipes turn out great once again. That being the case we now almost always have a full cookie jar...is that a good or bad thing? You... Continue Reading →

Friday we had gone to Seattle to see¬†Grateful Shred¬†, they are a Dead cover band and are great. If your into that and they are playing near you check them out! You wont be disappointed....

Napping Kitties

Both O & S have been loving the new house. So much more open space to play in, a glass door, and the stairs...don't forget the stairs. With all this "new" they are constantly running about and getting into kittie shenanigans...which leads to BIG naps. Not cat naps, but full on snoring, tongues flapping out... Continue Reading →

Happy Bedding

I can never seem to ever find any bedding that I am a fan of. So seeing that I have all my dyes for tie dye I decided to do some bedding for us. I am pretty happy with how it had turned out, and the kitties seem to approve as well.

For the Bees

I like to keep our yard free of chemicals and accommodating to the wildlife. Be that birds, bees, grasshoppers, mantises, or by beloved squirrels. This I am sure drives the neighbor crazy...He is "King Roundup" and the "weeds" that he despises, we actually enjoy. Anyhow this year we have quite a crop of sunflowers...it makes...
