Happy Friday!

This week, I got my sun on!  I re-stained our front and back steps (as I do each year to treat them) and put a water seal on both of our piers, as well as the bench that is on one of our piers.  So for my reward – a nice COLD beer!!  It was so cold that it looked like an beer slushy!

One pot meal!

We love making meals all in one pot, easy to clean up!  This meal included veggies out of the garden – fresh green beans, potatoes and onion and then added some baby carrots (store bought) and sausage.  Yummy!!

My Favorite Flavor

Went to the grocery store today just to get a couple things, and decided to check and see if my favorite flavor of Blue Bell ice cream was out yet – and it was!  I LOVE Key Lime Pie.  This is a rotational flavor and the last time it came out, I think I got like 3-4 cartons throughout the time it was available.  I am not a huge ice cream eater, but with this flavor, I become Miss Piggy!

Peek a Boo!

I received a package today and put the box on the floor, knowing exactly what would happen.  Tabitha LOVES boxes.  This will be her “play house” for a while.

I see you!

Boudin Tacos

Ever hear of Boudin Tacos ?  We didn’t either until last night when we decided to cook some Boudin and then use flour or corn tortillas as the wrap.  I sauteed some onion and along with some cheese, these were really good!

Yummo!

Meet Roscoe!

We have a new addition to our family – Roscoe!  We weren’t intending on getting another dog so soon after I had Bear put to rest, but Greg was on this forum that he belongs to and someone had an ad for Roscoe to go to a good home in the country.  One look at his face and I knew we would take him.  He is about 2 years old and gets along fine with Remi.  In fact, I think there will be lots of playing between the two, which will be good for Remi.  He will have to get used to our outdoor cats and so far chased Buddy up a tree!  I think once Buddy puts him in his place, he will be fine.

Birdy birdy!

We have a Swallow nest that has been on one of our floodlights for a few years now, and I just leave it there.  Each year, the Swallows will lay 3-4 sets of eggs and when they are bigger, will peer over.  I caught this one looking out.  Such a cute face!

Peep, peep!
Peep, peep!

I Feel Pretty!

I gave Remi a bath today and put a new collar on her – camo!  I LOVE camo and since she is a hunting dog, she needs to fit right in with the hunting scene.  Her fur is kinda curly and after a bath, it really waves.  She is so shiny after a bath!

Gladiolus

I planted these a few months ago and they are starting to bud out.  They are Gladiolus Traderhorn.  They look orange, but are a deep orange/red color.  I think they are gorgeous!
