One thing I do not love is shoes. Well, I do love shoes. I just do not love having wide feet with a bone spur. And throw in plantar faciitis which decides to pop up off and on. This makes finding shoes especially difficult. One pair of shoes that has treated me well over the […]
We are on Winter Vacation this week. I am re sharing a post I wrote about Kitchen Tools. Enjoy! I was recently asked what my most used kitchen tool was. I had to think! I wanted to say my new shiny Kitchen Aid Pro mixer, but no. I wanted to say my salad spinner that I […]
I touched on Project Life a while back. I wrote about it here. At the time I was doing hands on, cutting, pasting, real life scrap booking with this process that was new to me. The major shift in iPhone photography vs. my Canon DSLR was the main catalyst for this. I take more photos […]
It is February. I am going to focus on things I LOVE this month. Winter is here. We get complacent about things we do everyday. I wanted to share the things that make me happy and share those with you. Enjoy!
It is Superbowl Weekend. No mention here of Deflate Gate. We are a solid Pat’s household! While I would prefer to sit and watch football with my iPad on my lap scrap booking Project Life pages – this game I do like to watch. If only for the commercials! Superbowl = Chicken Wings. I want […]
Unscheduled Post Alert! Yesterday I was featured for my Food Prep post here at Wake Up Wednesday Linky Party. I told the girls at breakfast today and they asked ‘is that a big deal?’ Umm, pretty big deal for me when you’re just a little blog trudging along. And while you have to scroll way […]
Being 2015 I thought I would post a short update of where I am and a little of where I have been. I have written a bit about my journey here to get healthy, fit and feel better. Some of that can be found here and here. Easter of 2012 I decided to go cold […]
We are on Christmas Break here in New England. I decide to re-post one of my most favorite posts of the year in honor of the end of the year. We all need to be reminded HOW to be successful! Have a healthy and happy start to the Near Year 2015. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ There are times I am more […]
This is my yearly obligatory sharing of our Christmas Card photo shoot. We have made a tradition of doing this on Veteran’s Day in November. Each year we are able to JUST catch the last burst of leaves on the trees and autumn in the air. This year was no different. I even let the […]
My teen this year declared she was freeing my Dept. 56 New England Village from the attic this year. While I lugged it all down, and organized the boxes for her she jumped into setting the village up. I am not sure why it has not seen the light of day for so many years. […]
I had posted back in the Spring about the transformation in our old ‘playroom’ in our Little Red House. And how I had a moment and whitewashed the entire room. I shared this photo of the transformation. I looked forward all year to transforming this room into a Winter White room. I came close! The […]
A gathering of friends for an evening of Wreath Making.
One of our favorite stops in the White Mountains is at Diana’s Bath. Tucked off a New Hampshire road, and a 3/4 mile mild hike in there is this amazing waterfall exists. We went a few years ago. I posted about it here. This year the girls and I took the Mr. for the first […]
I simply did not post this summer. I had no intentions of taking the summer off – I just did. I had plenty of things to work on – not all of it was things I will share. I focused on having fun with my family. I thought I would share in photos some of […]
