Just a few things that happened this week…

Hello all 😎First I wanna brag a bit (even though I had nothing to do with it πŸ˜‹) The weather is amazing! Now keep in mind ~ I’m in Kansas, and it’s sometime in February…the 21st…it’s February 21,  yet currently 76 (!!!) degrees outside! 

πŸ’«So, this morning I met up with a friend for our daily dog walk, and it was so truly gorgeous out there, that we decided to be ambitious and take this walking business one step further. But first we took the dogs home- they’re legs are short, and 2.5 miles is about all they can do. πŸ˜€ But Carole and I really did it. We walked another 4 miles! I admit, I’m a bit sore, but feel great! We walked a trail we had only heard of and talked about, and it was beautiful. Halfway through we came upon a patch of trees…


Look at these thorns 😳 They’re about 4″ long! We had no idea what kind of tree this is, so I researched it when I got home. It’s a ‘Honey Locust’ tree. They like to grow on moist riverbanks. Makes sense…..there is a little creek flowing nearby. Apparently in the summer and fall they look quite pretty. I’ll try to remember to take more photos then! 😁

That was today….the rest of this past week was just a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. 

πŸ’«Last Monday I made my husband’s favorite…delicious ‘country style ribs’, cooked in beer…EEEK πŸ˜‹ No wonder they’re his favorite, right?! 

*I’ll share the recipe this Friday 


πŸ’«There’s news on the succulent front 😍 I’m propagating my ‘Echeveria minima’. Look at these roots and ‘babies’ appearing slowly 


If you’d like to try this…here’s help πŸ˜Š

On Saturday was ‘National Wine Drinking’ Day ~ I don’t have footage of that 😝 but I found this poem…


Hehehe ….πŸ˜‚

πŸ’«Here is a  ‘work-in-progress’ currently on the table…

‘Cala Lilies’ – from sketch/drawing to oil painting…



Right now I’m filling in the background. Once it’s dry enough to hang, you’ll get to see the finished piece. 😍

πŸ’«Speaking of finished piece- here’s a wreath I made over the last week. A lot of tulle and denim, knotted, surrounding a ‘Live, Laugh, LπŸ’œve’ Weaving. What do you think? It’s quite unusual, huh? πŸ™ƒ


πŸ’«This lady moved to the store last weekend. I really enjoyed turning a boring (and a bit creepy 😬) white styrofoam head into sassy ‘Ms. Katherine’


πŸ’«A few days ago, on our way to the casino, I caught the last glimpse of the setting sun 


It reminds me of one of the last scenes in one of my favorite movies/books- ‘Rebecca’, written by Daphne duMaurier, when the DeWinters leave London to go back to Manderley, and they see the fiery glow on the horizon. Thankfully here it really just is the setting sun. πŸŒ…

πŸ’« I came across this wonderful poem that really spoke to me. I hope you love it as much as I do, and make it your mantra πŸ’œ

πŸ’«And now ….because you’re so sweet to read all the way up to here πŸ’•a little sneak peek at my next post  ’10 easy Home Decor ideas’


So, these are a few things from my past week. I’d love it if you would share a story or picture from your life with me 😍
