My parents are in the process of cleaning out their attic. That means that they are in the process of sending bags and bags of old toys to our house. That means, that Buddy gets bags and bags of new things to sleep on/in. Can you find the kitty hiding in the stuff?
I love the big tree in our front yard. It looks so nice in the summer.
We have a deck and I am so looking forward to sitting on it this summer with a beer in my hand.
Summer means time for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. And we have added seating with the picnic table in front of the garage.
I made one of these when big girl was born and I finally got around to making one for baby girl. For both of them, I included their “going home” outfit, a picture taken at the hospital, hospital bracelets, and assorted other mementos of their first days.
One of my favorite things about shopping after the holidays are over is that you can frequently get a great deal on mixes for baked goods simply because they are holiday flavors. Now, I don’t know about you, but I love pumpkin bread any time of the year. And, I am always willing to try a new fun flavor of waffle mix.
I do enjoy trying new mixes but I do have an important rule that I make myself follow when shopping after holiday (any holiday) sales for baking mixes. The price of the mix needs to be less than what the price would be if I bought the ingredients separately. That pumpkin bread mix makes two full loaves and is really heavy because of the can of pumpkin in the box. This was a good deal. The scone and waffles mixes were purchased for just a couple bucks each. Also, great deals.
Do you buy holiday mixes? What are your favorites?
