Climbing back on the wagon

It seems that if things aren't tight around here we don't watch every penny, then we spend until all those little pennies are gone.

So instead of beating my head against the wall of everything we have done badly in the last 2 weeks, I'm just going to hammer out a new plan. and kick myself in the rear to stick to it.

Why it is important to stick to it.
-I want a home
-I want a garden
-I want livestock
-I want to live in the country

-No tvs on during the day
-Eat every meal at home. No matter what
-Use homemade laundry soup
-No unnecessary driving
-Follow daily routine
-Give 100% at work
-work on cowl on wednesday
-photo a day


  1. We all have our setbacks. Sounds like you have the right attitude to turn things around. Good luck!

  2. I feel like we've been spinning our wheels for SO long. Its frustrating to be in this rut and not see an end in site OR to see an end and know its not the way you want it to go. But I keep telling myself, we'll get through this and it'll all turn out how its meant to be. I just have to focus. Just keep plugging away and don't give up!

  3. Best wishes as you set out to fulfill your new goals!!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
