Weekend Snaps | My Gardens

It was a miserable weekend, weather-wise … 40s and cold rain. Is this really May 21? But on the flip-side, my cousin and her daughter visited from Iowa and it was a blast to see them!  Plus … my 13-year-old had his first date! I know – whaaaat? He and a girl went to the movies […] Read more…

May Flowers

Finally. Gardening season is here! Time to get my hands dirty. Time to get planting. Time to create beautiful pots of flowers to pretty up the front porch. Time to get out the chicken wire to deter the bunnies. Hey, not everything about gardening is fun. 😉 Here are a few photos of what I’ve […] Read more…

Mother’s Day Weekend

I had way too much fun this weekend – starting with the fact that I took Friday off and turned it into a three-day weekend. Plus, the weather was GLORIOUS. It felt like summer – finally!

Weekend Snaps | Staycay Vacay

Oh sadness. My week-long staycation vacation is nearly over. Sigh. Life does go on and I suppose it’s time to get back to the office and get a head start on my spring to-do list. Joe, too, will head back to school tomorrow for the start of his fourth quarter. (Just a few weeks from […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | The Last of the Garden Color

Let’s be real here. It’s October 16 in Minnesota and while winter is “technically” a couple of months away, I think we all know November is creeping ever closer and it’s about time to put the gardens to bed. What’s amazing about this fall, however, is how my perennials and shrubs – and heck, even […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps + Some News

Happy Sunday, friends! My boys and I had a great couple of days. Yesterday, we hopped in our car to find some fall colors (a bit elusive with the cloudy skies and rain) and grab lunch at this out-of-the-way (see also hole-in-the-wall) restaurant. The burgers (and chicken strips, of course) and tots were absolutely fantastic […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | Birthday Girl

Hello 48!  In case you haven’t noticed by now, I’m not afraid to tell you my age. (Read last year’s birthday post here.) I mean, I am what I am, right? And while it’s seems a teeny bit surreal that I am getting ever closer to a new decade, I can honestly say my 40s […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | September Garden

Here’s something you probably don’t know about me: I have never made real, honest-to-goodness fried chicken until this weekend. Random, I know, but it seems strange that in almost 48 years, I’ve never even tried.  That all changed Saturday night when I made some pretty dang fabulous fried chicken from this Food Network recipe courtesy of […] Read more…
