October 31, 2023 – Happy Halloween!

We’ve had cold weather on Halloween before, but today was an all out blizzard! Trick or treat in our subdivision was two days ago, and it snowed lightly then as well. October was a lovely month, but now I am ready to take down the Halloween decorations and move on to a snuggly Thanksgiving.

Typical Halloween in Wisconsin…

Enjoy this chilly last day of October 2023!

Happy Halloween!

October 22, 2023 – Happy Sunday, Everybody!

Hello All! Today is Sunday and I should be taking a day of rest. But once again I am running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, trying to get all of the things done before we begin a new week. I was about to start some laundry when I remembered I was going to post on my blog two days ago and didn’t get around to it. October is flying by and I have not stopped in once to say “hello”. So, “Hello!” 😀

Orange Dahlia in Wisconsin in October?!

This is a weird year. Sometimes it is cold and yucky like October is supposed to be. But it has also been a mild fall. So, I have orange dahlias blooming in my front yard…in October…in Wisconsin. That’s just not right.

Life is busy. I have been working a lot in my kitchen. I have been processing apples and pears into sauce and scrap vinegar. I have been cooking and baking. I have been sewing, but not as much as I should be. I have been chasing DD around to volleyball and other school activities. I have been volunteering one day a week helping with hot lunch at DD’s school. I have been playing dartball at our church and bowling with DH in a couples league. Life is good!

I hope Everyone reading this is having a fantastic Sunday, and life is good!

Enjoy your busy October!

August 16, 2023 – Sad News: Missing Coffee Break Fest this Year

Hello Everyone! Sadly, I have to miss Coffee Break Fest this year. A number of things came up and I can’t make it. If you get the chance, I highly recommend you go. My sisters and I absolutely LOVE hanging out in the giggleFritz booth, sampling coffee, listening to the music, and strolling through the craft fair and car show. I will really miss it this year, but hope to be back next year.

Have a fantastic day!

July 31, 2023 – Campfires are better than Dumpster Fires

What can I say other than July was really, really busy. I am a bad blogger. I am not good at taking pictures of everything and writing about what I do. I AM good at carting my kid around to her summer activities and stopping at the grocery store when we need turkey, pizza, and toilet paper. Oh, and making chocolate chip cookies. Anyway, just stopping by for a quick check in and then back to work.

The title of this blog post is “Campfires are better than Dumpster Fires”. July was busy, but it was NOT a dumpster fire. Good things happened. The week of the 4th of July we went to a family’s party and they always have the best nighttime fire. I actually took a bunch of pictures because so many friends and family showed up. We had a blast. Here is our campfire!


A couple of weeks ago my sister and I took a short weekend vacation up in Door Co. Wisconsin. No kids, no husbands, it was great! We got back to the Cana Island lighthouse, we took the ferry over to Washington Island, we stopped at Door Co. Coffee and Tea Company, we walked around at Newport State Park. It was a much needed get away. If I remember correctly, I had not spent a night away from either my husband or daughter in seven years!

I gotta go, it’s time to get back to work! I will stop in more often and tell you what I am up to.

***PLEASE NOTE*** I am always busy with something, but my business is very important to me. If you order something from me it is my top priority to get it to you quickly.
