Target of the Corn

This sucker stopped me in my tracks on Saturday, May 28. It's not every day you see a ginormical corn on the cob -- complete with melting butter -- floating in Chez Target.

(Sorry 'bout the bottom right blur; I got so excited I forgot to move muh finger.)

No Power? Frost Something!

Without power, I made coffee frosting and frosted this spice cake by flashlight tonight. Hold your applause--it's what any Midwest girl would do.

Well, at least he gathered it all in one place ....

Clearly, my son is maturing. He gathered what his father and I refer to as, "his droppings" in what I choose to believe is an intention of throwing them away WITHOUT BEING TOLD.

Victory is near!

When Tall People Roam

Clearly, one of the house giants put the creamer away.

(sorry about the flash)

Inaugural Post

I may not post every day, but the plan is to at least take a photo each day and get them uploaded as time permits. 

We had some vandalism done to our back fence this past weekend. It was unfortunate, but likely a great lesson for the young man who perpetrated the damage.

On my way to inspect the destruction, I noticed this little beauty growing in the middle of the lawn. I've no idea where it came from, but it gave me pause. And a reason to smile. The gratitude wasn't far behind.
