Playing with MINIs on the Dragon

We had some fun recently, for a needed and restful change, playing with our MINI friends. It was time again for MINIs on the Dragon, an annual event gathering MINI owners from all over the US and Canada. Although we are still in the window where My Sweet Babboo shouldn't drive or go for long …

Sunday Chat

So many little things to talk about today, time for a Sunday chat on a lot of subjects. First, I want to thank you all for the kind words, and encouragement as My Sweet Babboo recovers and we get back to a 'normal' life. We now turn our attention to the enjoyment of each day, …

Earth Day 2022

Today is Earth Day and it is the perfect time to make a pledge to help our planet by recycling, and reusing.  Simple things like refusing a straw, or using paper plates instead of plastic ones can help.  Buy and use things made from recycled materials when you can, especially for things like trash bags …

April in the Garden

More things are blooming in the garden this week, and more birds have been showing up at the feeder. The redbud tree has burst into glorious color, a lavender-pink that is just beautiful. It is alive with honey bees. The branches are full of blooms. When a goldfinch landed on a branch, I tried to …

These were such a cute idea, a rolled up fat quarter 'served' in a cupcake liner with a little triangle of yellow …

Rainy Days and Scrap Dancing Fun

It has been another week of appointments and meetings, with little to show. Last night it was raining and this morning was foggy when I awoke. The clouds are supposed to lift later and warm up a bit. It was a dreary dawn, but I do love the layers that appear when the fog settles …

Sunday Chat

Colder temperatures have brought the birds to the feeder this past week. My Sweet Babboo put a new suet cake out for them and it was eagerly pounced upon by this downy woodpecker. The cardinal pair came by too, along with an entourage of goldfinches still wearing their winter drab. But they are brightening up …

Sunday Chat

We were housebound for four days this past week, which meant a lot of projects were either finished or new ones begun. A few Zoom calls took up a bit of time, and I got a bit more progress on the epic historical novel I'm currently reading. Just before the snow started, I got this …
