Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to our party. I hope your week is off to a great start. I know that it is still winter, but it is usually about this time of year when we are tired of winter and looking forward to some warmer weather. Of course here in Florida, we get into spring much sooner. lol! I have been working in my garden and planting seeds. I am doing an experiment with butternut squash. I dried some seeds from a bought butternut squash and then I bought some organic butternut squash seeds. I want to see which ones perform the best. So far, the ones I dried came up first. I will let you know how well they produce.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend. My was very nice although I was not feeling well. I have vertigo  and when I have a spell, you get very dizzy. The bad part is that you can't read, drive or ride in a car (it makes it worse) use your computer. You can watch some TV, but mainly you want to lie down and sleep.  I was able to get my parties ready but I should not have been on my computer. So if you don't hear from me in the comments, that is why. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Apple Mini Pies

Apple Mini Pies

My in-laws called and said they were coming over and I didn't have time to go to the store. All I had was one crust that I hadn't used and 4 Gala apples.  I knew I didn't have enough to make a whole pie so I thought of just a few small ones for dessert.  Mini desserts are just as good! Right?

Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness is Homemade!



Happy Sunday, Sweet Friends. I hope you are having a great weekend. Ours was good, but the weather was crazy. On Thursday it was 81 and on Friday it was 50. Weather has been really strange this winter.  Hubby is working on the sprinkler system, trying to get it finished before the pool gets started. We have lots of trees so the roots keep breaking the lines for the sprinklers. The joys of having lots of trees.  What is/was on your radar this weekend? 

On behalf of all of our hosts, I just want to say THANK YOU to all those who contributed to last week's party! WELCOME to all the new bloggers who have joined our weekly blog hop. Please invite your blog friends and social network to join us.

Happy Thursday!   I hope you are all doing well. This week has flown by. I think because of Monday being a holiday. I always get my days confused when it is a long weekend. Hubby leaves on Monday instead of Sunday and I am thrown off.  

My neighbor gave me a compost that he built and so I have been adding things to it. I will take some pictures so you can see it. I am so excited to have it. Stay tuned for a compost post. 

If you are looking for some inspiration for the day, check out some of the posts. There is bound to be lots of great Valentine dessert ideas.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday!  Did you enjoy your long weekend or did you have to work? I remember when I worked how nice it was to have  along weekend. Now that I am retired, everyday is nice.

Hubby worked on our sprinkler system since we are going to be putting in a pool and had to reroute the sprinklers.  Although I am so excited to have a pool, it is all of the dirt and construction. The dogs went out this morning and just looked at the dug up yard where he dug up the sprinklers. Can you imagine when they put in the pool?  Creating the design took awhile and we picked out some of the materials, but we still have to pick out the pavers. The engineers are working on the design and then it goes for permitting.  I will keep you posted.

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Happy Monday! Here we are at another new week.  It's hard to believe that  we are around half way through February.  We had another lovely weekend here in central Florida. A little rain on Friday morning and some late Sunday night but otherwise beautiful. How about your weekend?

Hubby was working on digging a trench for a new electrical line he is putting in. He was trying to find where the sprinkler system was so he would not hit that. It looked like gophers had a field day in our yard - mounds of dirt were everywhere. He did get it done.

Happy Sunday to everyone. Did you have a lovely Valentine's Weekend. I certainly did. We went to an antique flea market at Renninger's in Mount Dora. I bought a plant, is that funny or what. Later we had dinner with family and played cards. 

I found a few more boxes that I had not unpacked so did that today. I have been sorting things into boxes for a garage sale. It has been a busy Sunday, of course we went to church. Tonight we are going out to dinner for my daughters birthday.

Happiness Is Homemade Linky Party

Happiness is Homemade, Link Party 


Happy Sunday and welcome to the party.  I call it Valentine Weekend since we are having fun all weekend and ending it with a lovely dinner on Sunday night. We are going to my favorite restaurant called 1921. It is a little pricey but we only go there for special occasions. They have a charcuterie (with meat, pate, cheeses) that is out of this world.  We get it every time and then I have to go light on dinner since I am usually full  by the time we finish that.  I look forward to it and I am already drooling. 

What has been on your agenda this weekend? 

Happiness is Homemade, Link Party #310


The month of February is all about Valentine's Day, Football, President's Day, Ski Week, Organization, and the longing for Spring. Today, I'm featuring some fun organization DIY's and a couple of healthy recipes.

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

I am so delighted that you stopped by our party.  How is your week so far? Mine has been awesome. We are experiencing higher than normal temps here in Florida and I am loving it.  

It is Valentine's week and I really haven't done much in the way of decorating since I was out of town. Now it feels like it is too late to worry about it. I am going to make hubby a Valentine dessert, but not sure what that is going to be yet. We don't go out on Valentine's Day since it is crazy, but have reservations for Sunday night.  Do you do anything special for Valentine's Day? Do you go out for dinner?

Happy Sunday to everyone. We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend.  The weather was so nice. We worked outside both days. My husband had to fix our sprinkler system that he took apart when we had a patio put in. 

I was cleaning up our yard after the storm on Thursday night. We had high winds and some places had tornadoes, but we didn't. Branches were everywhere. I really cleaned out the trees. I have not felt that much wind except when Erma hit. 

Did you get hit with any bad weather? I know Vermont got hammered with snow on Friday.

Happy Thursday!  Well, I am back from Vermont and it was a great trip. I think I got out in time with the big snow storm coming in on Thursday. They are already talking about school closings when I left. Did you get hit with the storm? I made it home to some lovely warm weather. 

My own babies (2 little doxies) were so excited that I was finally home. They have not left my site since I got home. They seem so tiny after taking care of those big ones. If you missed my trip to Vermont, you can see all of those pictures here.

My trip to Vermont is coming to a close and it is sad. I love spending time with my grand kids, but I just don't get enough time. Leaving on Wednesday will be difficult. I don't know when I will see them again. To all of those grand mothers that have their grand kids around, I am jealous.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I am sure that many of your are anxious for the game to begin and are already in party mode. I don't know if we are going to watch it or not, I asked my grandson, but he is not a fan of either team so he said maybe for a few minutes. I was excited to watch the Kitten Bowl. I hope you enjoy the game and your favorite team wins. 

I am off to play some PS2 games with the kids. Talk about excitement!

Snow Time in Vermont

Snow Time in Vermont

As you may know, I am spending 10 days in Vermont, babysitting my grand kids. Since I didn't get to be here in December (They came to Florida for the Holidays) I didn't get to see snow. Well, that has been taken care of this trip. 

It is a winter wonderland here at their house in Montpelier. They always seem to have more snow on the ground than other parts of town. It was a balmy 25 degrees today but sunny so I decided to send you some winter pictures.

My son has an 80 acre farm. He doesn't do any farming except for a large garden in the summer and lots of animals.

As you drive down the 1/2 mile driveway, it is lined with trees.

The ground is covered in snow ans the temps are around 30 degrees. The last two days have been quite overcast with grey skies and some snow flurries. It is warm inside and I have a Chai Latte to warm me up.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

It's Monday morning and a new week has begun.  I am heading to Vermont this morning. I had a 7 o'clock flight. Yikes, I had to get up at 3:45. I hope I can sleep some on the plane, but usually I don't. 

I am all bundled up for the cold weather. Although I saw my grand kids at Christmas, I am still missing them and anxious to see them. 

I hope you have a great week.

They just bought a second home here and came down to do some work on it. They will be snow birds for a little while longer.
