spring cleaning

I went thru mu fabric stash and weeded out all the fabrc i will NEVER use. Like the double knit polyester. I am giving that to this lady my mom knows who usws it. But my stash went from two BIG totes,one under the bed tote and two boxes to one big tote ond the two boxes. Well that is until i start unpacking my craft boxes. I know i have some more in at least three of them, not to mention the yarn and crochet scraps.

Someone needs a manicure

This sun bear was eating breakfast. I just love thier little sqish face.

Great idea

Now this fellow has the right idea for 100 degree Texas day. Made wish we didn't have to fill our pool in.

A day at the zoo

I decided to go to the zoo today. I ended up going alone, everybody else had to work or had other plans. But i had fun. This picture here is one of last years cubs. It just looked to cute sleeping while momma and its siblings were eating.

Great deal

I got all this, at a gas stationin town that has an organic grocer in it, for $6. The bag of potatoes was only $1.49. And the tomatoes are not hothouse ones either, but nice, lovely vine ripe.I could have gotten a lot more radishes for a lot less but who needs a 2 pound bag of radishes? I just needed enough to make some good macaroni salad. That does it that is the only place i am going for my fruit & veg.


These are some yummy squash that a guy that hubby works with gave us. Hubby is now in love with patty pan squash.

yummy biscuits

My first homemade biscuits ever. I used the recipe from MaryJane's Farm magazine.

How not to grow tomatoes.

This is ONE cherry tomato plant. It covers an 8'X8' section of the yard. My MIL planted it and watered it everyday. Big mistake.
As long as she was watering it all it did was produce vines, no flowers. Finally after three months of watering it and no flowers let alone tomatoes she decided to just forget about it. Well that was when it turned white with flowers! Then by the beginning of October it was COVERED in tiny red tomatoes.
Needless to say we had plenty of late season tomatoes.

Oh and that is my handsome, 6' tall, hubby Ronnie picking some of the stragglers.
