Working on clearing the backyard..in hope's to be able to get to the fence, so that it can be repaired in early spring.

Here is My Blog on Making Grape Juice !

nal_individual.asp?blog_id=6411166

I got 15 quarts of juice BUT...........................
I think the grapes could have been a bit riper ! The juice is still Wonderful but not as rich as I would like ! I had to pick them as it is so dry here that they were drying out and getting hard !
No rain scheduled until next week !

Time to pick Grapes and make Juice to Can ! They Smell AWESOME !


I went to check on my grapes, yesterday, and you can smell them...My yard smells like a Welches Grape Juice Plant !!! That's when you know when to pick them. I will juice them in my steam juicer and bottle it in Quarts ! Good project on this rainy day ! (other than picking them through the rain drops !)

I will post pictures as I go !

Thank you. I really like the shelf over the t.p. It comes in handy when I have to run in there after a workout and I still have my cell and earplugs on me. I have a place to set my phone down without worrying it'll fall. I think I saw the idea on pinterest.

I want to tackle the wall paper in the dining room next, but my son is begging me to hold off. LOL
I guess he doesn't have the DIY bug yet.

Thank you .... I have always found the Ocean and the surrounding beaches, to be a place of calm and bring tranquility to a home. { also not showing is a large and small lantern that is lit at night } .... all I need is a little fog rolling in .... ha ha ... emoticon

This is a picture of a collage of favorites that go by my ocean theme in the dining room. I took the disc in to a camera store where they send it off to a professional lab and had it enlarged on stretched canvas and mounted it with a nice board.... I love photography and have decorated a great deal with using my own pictures.



The Large Ocean Mural is one I took at Heceta Head, on the Oregon Coast and had it enlarged... I have also made a collection of terrariums of which I have either gifted or sold or used with this ocean theme.... emoticon

So This was my last project... I tore down an old rusted metal shed and built a playhouse for my son from the ground up!!! I'm really proud of it b/c I used it to teach myself framing, roofing, drywall, exc. and my dad (who usually helps w/ these kind of projects) didn't have to help me at all!!!





The inside I used drywall and painted w/ chalkboard paint!!!

My son (13-years old) and I are tearing down my old chicken coup and building chicken tractors. They are portable coups that can be moved so the chickens have new grazing area daily.

Thanks. I do still have my son here but he will be going soon after he graduates from college in a couple of years.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Dorothy...I hope you get some peace...That has to be so hard, I can't imagine...
Not to sound trivial, but maybe get a puppy or kitty...Just something to keep you company. I know it really helped my mother. My brother got her a small miniature poodle after years of her fighting it. It was the best thing ever for her. She had something to share her Love with.
Hugs to You ! emoticon

Are the cracks in the siding or framing or the sash ?
Maybe google your question as I'm not sure how to fix your problem without seeing...
Possibly a paintable, expandable (non-drying, pliable) silicon caulk.

What are you doing up at 3 in the morning ?

No I still am digging the old posts out. I did get a box turtle out from under my house today and will have to seal up the hole that it dug. I will be cementing it so that it will not happen again.

Need help with a problem that I have. It seems that I have cracks around my windows and I did try to load the image but it won't load for me. I need to figure out how to fix it but not sure how to go about fixing that. I am on a limited budget so that means that I have to fix it and not get someone to fix that I have to pay.
