Quick Update




I have been so busy the last couple of weeks. We finally got started on re-doing the kitchen.
Before

After

We even used Low VOC paint!
Here is a picture of the fan with a new cowl .
The kitchen is far from finished but we do now have a new counter top and a new cabinet for the microwave to sit on. The doors have been stained mahogany and are just waiting for a coat of
poly.

I made cupcakes for St. Pats. I used a yellow mix and dyed it orange then white frosting and green sugar to represent the Irish flag. I would have prefered to make them blue with a harp pick but I couldn't find harps anywhere. I heard of using an ice cream ball scoop to scoop out the batter into the wrappers. I did it this time and I not only got the 24 cupcakes, I also had some batter leftover amazing! LOL!

I guess over the past couple of weeks when I wasn't looking Mother nature decided that it was time that spring sprung itself from the deep hollows of winter. While I was out in the mud pit yesterday this is what I found.

Garlic I planted in the fall. (I know not a great picture)


Tiger Lilly's and Daisy's

Buds on the Lilac

Chives

Sage that over wintered

I'm sure that I am missing something. But I will remember and write about it later!

Gotta Run,
Yart
