Wow, it has been so long since I've posted here, I nearly forgot how to do it. I've been meaning to get back into the swing of blogging again and have a friend that's been urging me to, so why not start here :) This past month I've used up a pile of wood we've had sitting on the side of our house for just this purpose. I have always wanted to grill table for the much needed counter space when cooking outside, so I built this bench. I've used it several times since and it works so well, I've wondered how I've ever done without one. After gaining some confidence with the table, I made this bench for some additional seating. I really love how they have tied the area in so well, creating this beautiful (to me) and cozy outdoor eating space.

Went on a trip to Tennessee about a month ago. It was so refreshing to experience spring. Here in Florida, we basically live in varying degrees of summer so an actual season in such a beautiful place was wonderful to see :) And so many creeks everywhere, my favorite!
The second to last photo is the tornado shelter on my Grandfathers property. It is a concrete shelter dug into the side of a hill, with space enough inside for a cot and a chair. It would make the best clubhouse for a kid.

Some photos from a beautiful dewy morning this week. I did a quick pickling on the jalapenos from last week and they came out delicious. We put them in burritos, burgers and lots more. I am going to start posting weekly so thanks if you have hung around this long :)

Good Morning! And Happy Valentine's Day. A new Mr. & Mrs. Mook, some jalapenos I will be pickling later and the clothespin Valentines my little guy made for his class 3 years ago. This year he opted for store-bought and for me to make fresh cinnamon rolls for the class instead.

I am having some computer monitor problems around here (I'm working on an temporary CRT right now) so I thought I'd post some cute animal pictures in the meantime. My mom's new puppy, Jackson and my cat Herman. He looks kind of mean in the last picture, but he is so sweet and just telling me politely that he would like some food now ;)
