We turned around, drove down the road a ways, and found another area to walk around. It is so beautiful there. We will go back a... Read more

    9/25/2015 2:42:16 PM, by HICKOK-HALEY

    Yesterday DH commented on how fast the Scrub Jays were eating the Peanuts we leave for them. I kept thinking, they can't eat that fast. DH put peanuts in the bird dish in the backyard. He then walked to the front yard to get seed for the Finches. When he walked back to the backyard all of the Peanu... Read more

    I mentioned earlier in one of my blogs that I found more pics from July. So here goes. July 15th Sarge and I hopped into the car. My mission was to capture the sunrise. Since I was near Starbucks I bought me a Peppermint Mocha, and one of their Egg Sausage sandwich, and I shared that with ... Read more

    9/16/2015 8:48:07 PM, by NORTHWOODSMOM8

    I was SO disgruntled and bored last night but the LORD gave me grace. And today I changed things up. I had the best chicken salad for lunch: chicken, eggs, tomatoes, green onion, and the avocado oil mayo! It was so good and really helped me over the boredom hump. BTW, I received my avocad...

  • Day 16 of Whole30

    9/9/2015 6:50:53 PM, by NORTHWOODSMOM8

I honestly feel my taste buds are singing right now. Sautéed venison, mushrooms, carrots, asparagus, zucchini, onion, red, ora... Read more
