Early Spring Walk – March 17th

My hubby and I went for a walk yesterday and saw a lot of things we enjoy seeing this time of year.  We saw this curious squirrel… Pretty green buds… Turtles sunning themselves… Cardinals and many other songbirds… Ducks swimming in the creek… Many pairs of ducks and geese… A beautiful blue sky… A patch…

Early Spring Morning

The snow is receding.  Happy Dance! The chives are growing… I walked to the creek and my cats followed me.  Sunny stole the show. The moss is so beautiful. Today’s must try recipe- Shrimp and Orzo with Cherry Tomatoes and Romano Cheese

Chickpea Salad

I’m counting the days until Spring and already feel like having refreshing salads.  I visited the dollar store recently and picked out some fun things for my garden.  I felt a little silly taking pictures of what I bought, so I’ll share pictures later when I actually use them in my garden.  If you like…

Winter Fun – 2019

I have been enjoying the annual bird count this weekend.  The first day was Friday. We saw two Bald Eagles and four Hawks on the way to our walking trail.  Yesterday I went out later in the day and only saw two Cardinals.  So then I decided to count early this morning and saw a…

Snowdrops

The first flowers in my garden are these beautiful little snowdrops. They are also a wonderful first sign of Spring. I did some thrift store shopping and found these pretty flowers and a vase to put them in.  I love decorating my home with things I find at the thrift store.  I like country farmhouse…

Samuel S. Lewis State Park

Today we went to a State Park we visited once before in 2014.  We did more hiking than last time and here are our pictures.  We can’t wait to return in the summertime to play disc golf and fly our kite. This park used to have an arboretum. Squirrel tracks- Beautiful views of the Susquehanna…

Minestrone Soup & Movies

Today was the coldest day so far this winter.  We stayed home to do some house cleaning and I made Minestrone Soup.  It was 15 degrees out at 5:30 when I made this soup. There are many ways to make a minestrone soup.  I used carrots, celery, onion, garlic, red bell pepper, fresh cherry tomatoes,…

Snow, Staying Warm, & More

I have been thinking about Spring time lately and I’m going to start planning for my garden.  I like to use Pinterest.com for remembering my ideas.  I’m also looking forward to the peaceful and beautiful snow that comes each year and covers everything.  We’re planning a hiking trip soon and it might snow the day…

Happy New Year 2019

I like the posts where I share daily happenings.  Like short walks and food I eat.  Yesterday we went on a hike near the lake.  Then we stopped at the grocery store for a few things. We watched a red fox walking around near the store. Today I added roasted bananas and apples to the…

Walking, Crafts, and More

The first few pictures here are from a walk we went on a few weeks ago.  We love to pick up coffees and walk for 30 minutes at this trail.  At first I didn’t think I took great pictures, but they are actually really nice!  Yay! I also had a lot of fun picking up…
