Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

I haven’t featured St. Peanut here in ages, since I don’t feed the birds in the summer when natural food is abundant. My little feeder has been out for a couple of weeks now and I’ve got several Chickadees visiting so I sat at the window for just a few minutes and ended up with… Continue reading Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

Welcome Back Winter (NOT)

Most of us were enjoying our early spring as the snow was very slowly melting and disappearing from the roads and being splashed onto our cars.  Yes, it was messy, but essential to getting rid of the snow and starting to see the ground again.

I have never had a balcony before, and I have now learned one thing since our first snowstorm. It is best to leave a sliding screen door open for the winter. I had noticed that some of the suites had their screen door in the open position and I had no idea why.  I didn’t… Continue reading The Balcony

Italian Crescent Casserole

Every once in awhile a recipe appeals to me and I decide to give it a try.  If you have seen any of my food blogs before, you will know that I seldom follow it completely though.  🙂 This one – found at Pillsbury is no exception.  I like to use recipes as a general… Continue reading Italian Crescent Casserole
