Hubs is back after spending the weekend out of town. Next week he'll be the best man for one of his best friends and had to celebrate his "bachelorhood". So, I had to entertain myself. I was kind of dreading it, seeing how it was the first time I would be staying at our house alone with the pup.
But in reality it wasn't so bad. I honestly don't think I turned on the TV once all weekend. It was nice and peaceful. I worked in the yard, read a non-work related book, did last minute wedding reception prep at my parents', and cooked and baked more than I had in quite a while.

I eventually ended up with this version, which is our new favorite. I decided it was time to write it down. They turn out so soft and pillowy. They're pretty amazing, if I can say so myself.

It seriously became spring at our house this past week. We tore out a bunch of half-dead trees and bushes from our backyard. But, we've yet to clean up the carnage so at the moment we've got a big old plant graveyard on our hands. We also planted a couple of apple trees, a Granny Smith and a Golden Delicious. They're dwarf trees, so they shouldn't get too big, but they should provide us some apples in the years ahead (as long as the crazy deer will leave them alone...we've

I'm doing it again. I started reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver again yesterday. It's Spring Break and I decided to read, since pleasure reading
I read it for the first time nearly two years ago and it
