One Thing Leads To Another!




We've had a few contractors out recently examining the damage from Hurricane Matthew.  Let me tell you that is a feat in itself because of the extensive damage here in South Carolina.  They are so busy it's hard to get to them. Isn't it funny when talking of painting this and that you can already see what else you would like to do as well?  If you have to paint this room then other rooms would look nice painted.  Don't you think?  Yes one thing leads to another.

Product Review: Chopping Block Set by Joseph Joseph



This is a review that I did on Dolly is Cooking about three years ago. I no longer have that website so I'm putting it on here. This particular item or a comparable one can be found here.  I recently won a selection of their products and I'll share that post next.

Catie and Doug are Married!




You've no doubt heard me say many times that Catherine (Catie) is my clown, my comedian, if not she is.  She is my youngest and  has always done things in her own way.  All who meet her tend to love her and the mere mention of her name promotes a smile on their face.

Doug is as she would say "The lumberjack of her dreams".  No he isn't a lumberjack, but she has always wanted that type of outdoorsy person.  She found him.  He has a kind and gentle nature about him with the most pleasant smile.  He also sounds like Matthew McConaughey, so everybody likes to hear him say, "Alright, Alright, Alright."  You may if you follow the design site know him because he was the model for many of my aprons.

Today I share bits from our little gathering we had here at home after they were married in a private ceremony.  Join me won't you.

Gaston Decides to Leave the Coop!


I don't know if he thought about it for awhile or if that fateful day he just decided he wanted to be free.  All I know is I opened the gate to feed them up and let Casper out for his daily run.  The door was open as always but on this day Gaston decided to saunter on out of it.

Sweet As Candy Apple Crisp



It's that time of year for wonderful tasty apples.  This recipe will use up a few Granny Smiths and your family or guests won't mind either. You will hear a few oohs and aahs when they dig into this rich dessert.

A Hurricane, A Wedding, Canadian Family Visiting,Fresh Flowers & Blanching Butter Beans in October!


We certainly have had quite some weather in South Carolina, a hurricane and it has been unseasonably warm.  I'm not complaining about the warmth mind you because I love it! We have mosquitoes here that seem the size of dragon flies!
More importantly my youngest married, we have had wonderful visits with family from Canada and those here that we haven't seen in awhile. I just can't believe that I'm cutting fresh flowers and it is the end of October. I found some delicious fresh green butter beans (lima beans) at McLeod Farms. We are awaiting repairs on the house as well.  We are still so much more blessed than some who have suffered much more.  I will be glad however to be able to move the cooking pots and buckets out of the room that has a massive leaky roof...well that and my closet...
