We have a dog - Wrigley - a sweet natured galoot, half lab/half coon dog, who just turned a year in August. She's still an active puppy and she loves to play, play, play, play all day long. I've felt sorry for her many times, being stuck with me - not always the best company for a puppy probably. She loves when neices and nephews come over - they will run and shout and roll around with her and she ADORES that.

If you have bushels of apples to peel I HIGHLY recommend getting yourself an apple peeler. When we moved into the house we live in now, we inherited a couple of apple trees. I bought an apple peeler at my sister in laws Pampered Chef party and believe -you- me I am so thankful I had the forsight to make that purchase. [More]
Here's hint about what I've been doing lately!
Scarecrow: Come along Dorothy. You don't want any of those apples.
Apple Tree: Are you hinting my apples aren't what they ought to be?
Scarecrow: Oh, no! It's just that she doesn't like little green worms! [More]
This recipe comes from a sweet old lady - I know TONS of sweet old ladies, ok. I worked with her son and he was selling her homemade recipe books at work one day. I bought one because you know that all the good recipes are going to come from little old ladies who have been cooking forever. This one says it's an apple crisp, but it's really more of a crumble. I'm not getting picky but I make my crisps with rolled oats so there IS a difference.
Yesterday, David brought me these roses. Yes, he is sweet. You should smell them though, especially the large red one in the front - the scent is UNBELIEVABLE. [More]
It's getting to be the season for curling up on a chilly night with a big bowl of carmel popcorn and watching some good movies! This is my mom's recipe and it's always been a family favorite. You can add peanuts to this recipe if you like.

These are some easy pickles to make that don't require any canning. My grandma used to make them all summer long as her cucumbers got ripe in the garden. [More]
