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!  😆
