Friendly Fill-Ins!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins First two were done by Ellen of 15andmeowing

3. I have a lot of confidence in my ability to ignore annoying people. 
4. Patience is easier said than done.

Feline Friday!

I am so thankful to be living with such
a talented man! He can do just about
anything! Last week he remodeled our
downstairs half bath and today he is working
on an oil painting for a good friend.
He is painting a very fun coffee shop
that we went to everyday in Loreto Baja Sur
in Mexico. We enjoyed delicious coffee drinks
and enjoyed meeting new friends every day!

Have a super happy day!

Awww Monday! April 17, 2023

I found this delightful cookbook at our local
Camas WA library! So far I have tried two
recipes and they are both delicious!

Today it is pouring rain so I figured I might as
well bake a few tasty delights!
Above is the recipe for the Blueberry Coffee cake. 

And here is the coffee cake before I cut it
up into nice sizes to share with our neighbors!!

But wait! I wasn't done....I also baked up a 
batch of our favorite Gingersnaps! 
Delicious! Especially with a glass of milk!

Here's the recipe from this years family calendar!
Enjoy and have fun everyday!
Thanks Sandee for Awww Monday!

Feline Friday April 14, 2023

I have posted before photos from our friends home
while they are hosting rescue cats and kittens. 
This week they are hosting a mother cat and her two
kittens- one is a male and the other a female.
They are all a bit skittish, especially the mother.
The first photo is of the mother and the female kitten.
The second photo is of the male kitten and he
 is a lot more adventurous as you can see!
The third and fourth photos are of our friends' little girl.
She is almost 9 months old and quite the cutie.
She is in the cat's room, but we are supervising while
I get some cute photos!
Many thanks to Mimi for hosting Feline Friday!!
