We had our grandson last week. One day we decided to make a "Chocolate Flower Petal Parfait Cup". I saw the recipe and video online thanks to Pinterest and thought that would be fun to make with our grandson. It did not go as exactly as planned . . . My Pinterest find was an epic fail...

The three cats are growing used to their new home so much so they have taken to venturing outside. The ginger cat has always been an indoor lap cat. King of his domain not sharing his human, food and space with other cats. Now look at him (photo in slideshow below)! All brave and outside,... Continue Reading →
Soaking up the sun on our back porch. Why, yes. I made the mug! 😉 Test tiles waiting to be fired then glazed and fired again. I feel like somebody is watching me! This is Midnight. He is the Semi-feral cat we adopted. He seems to be adjusting very well and has become the most... Continue Reading →
After Miss Kitty passed away in October of 2020 at the young age of 20 something, I thought I was done with cats. We have had many cats through the years. Five over the past 30 years. I was done with cats and gave all of our cat things way. The cosmos laughed and laughed.... Continue Reading →

We have a new neighbor. Moved Dug in under our shed undetected late fall of 2020 leaving a huge hole and pile of dirt. We have observed the new neighbor is not social this time of year. No sign of animal activity such as animal tracks or poo. This can only mean one thing. It... Continue Reading →
As with every year, we spend so much time preparing for Christmas and then it is seemingly over in the blink of an eye. We had a nice Christmas Day - different, but in a good way for us. Each decoration, tradition and recipe held a very special place in our hearts and minds this... Continue Reading →
2020 has sucked. It has really sucked. I lost my mom in June. Lost my mother in-law in September. And lost Miss Kitty, who was 20 years young, this week. “The earth will never be the same againRock, water, tree, iron, share this greifAs distant stars participate in the pain. A candle snuffed, a falling... Continue Reading →
This is not the post I had in mind for today but it's Monday so . . . I overslept. I woke up to husband having video conference with his work colleagues at the kitchen table. (He's been working from home since the Mid-March covid virus outbreak.) This meant I had to make my power... Continue Reading →
Today was glazing day. And laundry day. Glazing and laundry on the same day? What could go wrong? I shouldn't ask. It is still 2020 after all! While eating lunch, I noticed a young Robin drinking from one of Miss Kitty's handmade water bowls. It is nice see other critters enjoying a drink from my... Continue Reading →
