Garden Tower 4

Garden Tower
So one of the things I want to do is grow some food.  The desert isn’t a great place to do it, but it’s still possible!  I decided to start simply and get a Garden Tower. It’s also fall, so not a great time to start, but I started anyway :).[pe2-image src=”http://lh5.ggpht.com/-HFqPyQ1bxUo/Uj939QjIDEI/AAAAAAAABYo/onkYcPoozSE/s144-c-o/IMG_20130922_105143_291.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/113749325768518604662/Projects#5926587528940883010″ caption=”” type=”image” ...

Spice Rack 1

Spice Rack
In my kitchen the cupboards are very high and difficult to get into.  So the first thing I’ve made my own spice rack and put it where they are easy to get to.  And here it is: [pe2-image src=”http://lh6.ggpht.com/-PxqoC2GQCRg/Uj7xjC5_ZcI/AAAAAAAABVo/kZrNHkymt5Q/s144-c-o/IMG_20130916_072747_336.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/113749325768518604662/Projects#5926439744043967938″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20130916_072747_336.jpg” ]  It was very easy to make.  I found an instructable with the ...

So here’s the post everyone is waiting for!  The facebook folks are chomping away at it ever since they were mentioned by my family. The chicks arrived Friday.  Boy are they cute!  I’ve never ...

Furnishing and Decorating the Family Room 2

Furnishing and Decorating the Family Room
One major task is to furnish and decorate the family room.  When I moved here I decided to start over and really decorate.  I am really enjoying this and having a lot of fun. I thought I had some pictures of the family room with it just empty.  But I can’t find them, so here ...

Homestead 2

Homestead
Here’s some pictures of my new place!  Most of these pictures were taken before I bought the place (including all of the ones with furniture).  As I furnish/decorate the house, I’ll post pictures of the rooms.  I’m always up for visitors (especially my family) so let me know when you’d like to come.
