It's time to spread the love....

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!


It's a home day today for me. I found a window panel in the thrift store. I folded it in half to give it more thickness. For a buck, great investment!
Worked great for the one window I needed it for.

My cooking for the day. Will be BLT's and crockpot Potato Soup. Yum! I've used this recipe over and over. It's true and tried. So simple to make!

Combine 1 can ckn broth, 4 cups of cubed peeled potatoes, 1 cup chopped onion, 1 cup chopped celery, 1/2 cup sliced carrots, 3 tbl butter, 1 tsp salt and pepper and 3 cloves of chopped garlic. Cook this in the crock for one hour on high. Then turn to low, cook for approx 3 hrs or until vegetables are tender. If ready, turn to high setting. Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1.5 cups of milk. Wisk until well blended. Stir into soup. Cover and cook uncovered for 25 mins or until thick. Stirring frequently. When ready to serve, sprinkle with cheese.


Stay warm and have a wonderful Sunday!

Snow Day!

Another round of snow came by last night. Actually, started yesterday morning and
lasted most of the day.
Driving home from work was awful.

When I tried to get in this morning, I turned right around.
Too slippery for me. Didn't feel comfortable driving in it.
Called work, they told me to take the day off.
I love snow days!

So today was all about cleaning, getting ready for the OWOH event and cooking
some turkey chili.
Have a wonderful day!

And more snow is expected to come.
Our temps have been dropping and the wind is picking up. It's the kind of
cold that goes right to your bones. No matter how many layers you have on.
I'm so done with winter. Sure hoping for an early Spring.
Have a wonderful weekend!
