After 10 days traveling and bumming around Oshkosh, I delighted in staying home the last couple weeks. Boring, quiet, happy home. With cooking and gardening and strangely, wild life. See...
#215- Aug 2- Turkey chasing
#216- Aug 3- Walter grows
|I found papa turkey and his turklings in the yard, and shooed them away promptly. Eat all the bugs you want, friends, but keep your poops and leave my flowers alone, thankyouverymuch.|
#217- Aug 4- Gnocchi attempt two
|By Christmas he should be big enough to eat.|
#218- Aug 5- Chicken, leek and potato pot pie
|Maybe third time will be a charm. More on that later.|
#219- Aug 6- Bedroom refresher in progress
|Need a tasty, fast and get this, healthy dinner idea? Click here. |
#220- Aug 7- Better than an "Oops"
|Soooo, I finished the painting, finally. So what if I started in May?? And after getting the draperies cleaned for the first time ever, I got them put back up, finally. And now, we're shopping for a bed frame to replace the oak monstrosity. Ah, progress.|
#221- Aug 8- BBQ chicken goodness
|At 11:30 p.m. while watching the Olympics, I remembered I hadn't snapped a picture yet. "Goliath, wake up!"|
#222- Aug 9- "Stop waking me up!"
|Is there anything better than a tender BBQ chicken drumstick?? I used this super tasty pineapple marinade and then grilled them for 25-30 minutes.|
#223- Aug 10- Oh so sexy.
|In case you wanted to know what a severely annoyed, just-woken-up Goliath looks like. |
#224- Aug 11- The mother of all weeds
|On the hunt for a new bed frame, I visited a local consignment shop. Mr. T got a text message with this photo and the comment, "Now, tell me you wouldn't want to sleep here." Elegant, huh?|
#225- Aug 12- Channeling Edith Ann
|So I haven't been weeding planter beds lately... Found these beauties hiding in between shrubbies. Just charming.|
|So when did chairs get so hugemongous?|
