Silly Bunnies

February 14, 2017 at 10:47 am

Persephone has discovered a new hobby. She is pulling her food trough off of her hutch wall…silly bunny! Can you say bored! Since this is a recent development, I wonder if this is her protest of being spayed? I know, it is a real stretch, but she was perfectly satisfied with leaving it alone before the surgery.

Other than that Persephone is a very happy bunny as long as she has a quiet space around her. She does not like noise at all.



Beginning the Project

February 11, 2017 at 2:48 pm

We are at the start of the Bearhaven project, and I am looking forward to really getting started.

Currently, we have a renter in the house, but I’ll be able to begin work on the yard and garden as weather permits. Hopefully, we will take possession sometime between May-July. Then the real work begins or at least as much as my health permits.

The first project on which I’m working is restoring a 5-leg farm table. It is really cute, although it is covered in layers of yellow paint, and it has been used for years down in dad’s basement to hold all his older paint and thinner cans.

I have succeeded in getting most of the paint off the top surface of the table. I’m beginning to work on the legs and sides. I know I will end up sanding the whole table to reveal the wood. The table was used for so many years and has many surface burns on it. While I’m hoping the majority of the stains come out, I certainly don’t mind some of them remaining to tell the story of the past.



Oak Island Trip 2012

August 7, 2012 at 10:28 am

Day 3 – It has been raining off and on all morning. I did go shelling right after I woke up-lots of shells and very quiet on the beach.

After breakfast, mom went off to the library with Michelle and the little kids. Stu and I are planning to run to the shell shop (first to see if it is still there, and then look at all the fun beach items), and on the way back, we will stop at the store to pick up the rest of the ingredients for our Italian Dinner night on Thursday.

We may actually take a dip in the ocean this afternoon.




Anatomy of a Christmas Theme

September 11, 2010 at 2:06 pm

We have determined our Christmas theme for this year – Noel a la Maison. 🙂 I am getting ready to create little house ornaments made of clay, but first I need to find my house-shaped cookie cutters.

I also want to make house-shaped invitations. I wonder whether or not I have any house-shaped stamps? I will need to look.

For the menu? Down-home cooking, southern-style. I think I will dive into my Southern Living Cookbooks for inspiration, and see how many things I can make ahead. Of course, we will be needing to eat quite a bit out of the freezers first!  😆



Christmas in September

September 7, 2010 at 8:51 pm

Here it is 90 degrees, and I’m staying cool working on Christmas presents. Slowly, but surely, I’m making a small pile of them. Will I have enough by Christmas? Tis always in my thoughts. As the holidays grow closer, I tend to get more and more creative about what I am going to give folks.

I am happy to be working on my web site again. I am very enthusiastic about learning WordPress also! I hope you like our new format. I will be adding new things on a weekly basis, hopefully.
