homemade weed killer

They say too much salt kills...

That may be why this homemade weed killer works so good.

myth busting, new baby and baked goods

I just want to get a few things off my chest. So there's a myth out there that says if you don't have powdered sugar, then you can just put regular granulated sugar in the blender?

B.S. my friends. B.S.

I'm a pretty little bird...

The weather is cooling off more now.  

I love opening the windows in the morning and letting the cool air in.


The cool air is only part of why I love to open the windows. I love to open the windows and sit for a minute and listen... 

... listen to the birds.

soap opera episode II

I think I'm nesting.  

We are expecting our first grand baby any day now and I'm on a bit of a cleaning spree.

Yes, if you're wondering, I'm too young to be a grandma.  Wayyyy too young.  


All this cleaning led me to think about one of my favorite things of all time.

My soap pump.

Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Good Morning!

We've all heard how breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Especially a healthy one right?

Jelly filled donuts maybe not so much.

 So this morning I thought I'd have a healthy breakfast unlike yesterday where I may or may not have had said jelly donuts...

Trust in the Lord 

Elder Richard G. Scott

Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

"Getting through the hazards of life requires understanding, skill, experience, and self-assurance like that required to sink a difficult basket under pressure. In the game of life, that is called righteous character. Such character is not developed in moments of great challenge or temptation. That is when it is used. Character is woven quietly from the threads of hundreds of correct decisions (like practice sessions). When strengthened by obedience and worthy acts, correct decisions form a fabric of character that brings victory in time of great need."

entryway second impressions

An entryway is a homes first impression in my opinion.  Okay, maybe the front door is the first impression, and the entryway is the second, but you only get one chance to make a second impression...*ahem*

So for 3.5 months our homes second impression has been pretty sad.

Today was the day to make a good second impression.

That should be a song...

tomato, tom-ah-to

It's tomato time.  I just have to include this post on the all-things-canning-channel because they are simply (pun intended) the easiest thing to bottle imo.
