A little while ago I wrote about needing to find a watering solution for my raised gardens. Would it be a soaker hose? Would it be a portable sprinkler? Would it be a drip system? I’ve used all of them over the years. Each has their pros and cons. Each also has a different level… Continue reading Which End Is It?
The oven was heating and the mixer was spinning this past weekend. My work team has been really pushing through some tough projects and tight timelines. Thought I’d take some goodies in since I can’t do cash. With a couple of gluten-free team members, I wanted to make something they could have along with the… Continue reading Mango Butter and Strawberries
Although I did start seeds indoors about six weeks ago, the growing season officially began today. This year I had purchased a couple of grow lights. Those, along with seed heating pads I had purchased last year, really gave the seeds a good start. The plants were in much better shape and size than last… Continue reading Growing Season 2022 Officially Began

When a 21-year-old… Continue reading A Larger Pandemic
It was my niece’s baby shower today. Ignoring politics until tomorrow. Enjoy the evening!
Tonight I’m going to fanboy on my Hubby! For the past two years, my hubby has been wanting a smoker. He did his research, compared different brands, and went to visit them at the stores. In the end, he wanted a red Kamado Joe brand. After deciding, it became basically impossible to find. There was… Continue reading New Smoker
For the first time this season, I had a moment on the patio. Actually, two moments. The weather the past two days has been absolutely gorgeous. Not too windy, not too hot. It was even shorts weather today while mowing the grass. Yesterday, the husband and I sat for a chat just before dinner. Our… Continue reading Patio Time 2022
