I am a Mom, Wife and Daughter. Say road trip and I am all ready in the car. I do love to stay home too. I am either reading, sewing, crocheting, doing something with paper or taking care of my family at any given moment.

Winter Is Here.....It Is All Fun And Games Till The Plow Takes Out The Mailbox!

Our beautiful backyard winter wonderland!
The pretty part of our front yard.
The not so pretty part of the front yard.
And then the plow took out our mailbox.......

Our Christmas Present To Ourselves

This is our new water softener/filter!
This is the old set up.....
This is the new set up....
Look at all the freed up floor space! No salt! We replace the filter cartridge every six months. We should be cutting our water usage in half! The tap water tastes great too!

Dr. Sheldon Cooper's First Snow

The Newest Member Of The Back Yard Menagerie

This hawk was sitting in the tree out back as Stephanie and I came home from a walk last Thursday. On Sunday this guy (I am assuming both gender and that it is the same hawk) was perched on one of the bird feeders out back. Today as Stephanie and I got home from our trip Ann Arbor to get a flu shot out hawk friend was circling over the house looking for brunch.

Ann Arbor Michigan's Steiner Holiday Bazaar December 1, 2012

Sadly our pretty table looked just the same at the beginning and end of the sale..... Not a good year at all.... But we had fun.

Hair Do-Dads.....

I made close to forty of these hair clips last week.. This is just a sample of the colors and fabrics. They sure are fun to make and use up really small bits of scrap fabric!
