Roller Coaster weekend

Last week, we celebrated our daughter’s birthday with her at her home with a nice visit, a PB/chocolate pie (Yum!!!) & gift-opening. It’s always a bittersweet moment when the realization of your children no longer living under your roof and yet seeing them so happy making a beautiful home of their own. Such a joy…

That chill in the air though…

Spring is here and Easter is on it’s way, yard work is getting done here at the cottage, as well as indoor spring cleaning and kitchen renovations are still underway, but what is the deal with this wintery chill?! Gah!! We’re toughing it out and getting what we can done, especially the outdoor duties. I’ve…

Sauteed Radishes on a rainy evening

I wanted to try something different. I decided to saute them! They were delicious! We had for dinner: bean…
