Snow means sledding around here.

Headed out for sledding. The dogs were super excited! I want to have a dinner party up here someday. Who wants to come? It is like a park. Charlie's snowy butt. The snow sticks to him so he didn't last long:) Eddie loves the white stuff. Hana and Amy friends since Ebenezer Christian School. When it's over it's over. Time to go in and warm up. I hope you enjoyed the view from the top. Thanks for stopping by:)

A Favorite Park...

Driving home from a shoot on Tuesday I realized I had to stop at Berthesen Park. The sun was peeking through the clouds and the light was beautiful in the trees. Enjoy it because I think it's going to melt! Thanks for stopping by!

My nieces cat Bella had kittens so I headed over with my camera. I love kittens. We had fun trying to get them to warm up to the camera all the while mom Bella was trying to move them back under the bed. I used to be a crazy cat lady before I became crazy dog lady. All my child hood I had a cat and the occasional batch of kittens..see pic. If I was bored I would ride my bike to my Grandpa and Grandma's farm on the Wiser Lake Road and find some barn kittens and take them home and in brown bag and then "tame" them. ALSO my whole childhood I had a runny nose..see where this is going? In my 20's I learned I was allergic to cats. That explained allot! But I still love the kitties just not for long:) Thanks girls for sharing your darling kittens!

Project time...

The other day Hana and I created a "craft area" in the basement. We kinda moved in on the man cave:) But it has been great and now I am feeling like doing some of those projects that I've intended to do. I found this old piano front (not sure that is what it is called) So we bought a can of chalkboard paint. This stuff is every where and if you are on pintrest you know there are a million ideas for what you can do with it. What surprised me was how nice it goes on. I barely used any to cover this piano front. I am hoping to leave it on the mantel for now. And I realize it really doesn't go with my 70's house. But some day...oh some day! Thanks for stopping by!

Remember Summer?

The beauty that shall be eaten! Yeah I do. My brother and Bill caught many crab and we feasted on it. So Yummo! Speaking of yummo what I am getting to is Rachel Rays recipe for Bacon Crab Chowder. I tried it with some of the left over frozen crab and it was delish! Here are some of the pictures of the making of the chowder way back in October. Yes this is bloggy catch up time! On this day I also made Pioneer Womans Beef Stew with beer and paprika. It was outstanding! Then we loaded up my pots of goodness and headed over to celebrate Cash's Birthday with a few family and friends. I sure miss that little guy. Thanks for stopping by!
