From a Homemade Cart/Island To Tic Tac Toe and In Between
A lot of my thoughts to build
and or make something comes
I lack the thought to invent these
I saw several of these on
Pinterest before and
then last week (I start things and
then it takes forever to get them done)...
I started on my version of this cart/rolling
It seems like my shutters were longer
but that is cool for me
cause there is no bending at
I started with making the
boxed in area at the bottom.
2 pieces of wood cut to the lenght
I wanted. Then I added two narrow
pieces around the top outer edge.
Then came the even more narrow
pieces for the top.
I used all scrapes from the shed.
Thinking that maybe a shelve
in the center. Went to locate the rollers
I have in the shed but ....haha, I put them
in a place where I would not
forget where I put them...
After I locate those rollers
and decide how to finish
this off I will have a rolling
cart/ island for the kitchen. Great for
more prep area. Thinking I am going
to just stain to finish it off.
Heat however has really picked
up the last couple of days.
With that comes my feet swelling
and just plain not being able to
be out. At 94 degrees yesterday I
closed up the deck, made the
furbabes come in and we spent
hours in the house till it cooled down.
Moving on...I try to do simple
projects on the deck before the
heat gets me.
With that here is what I
came up with yesterday.
Piece of log that was used in
Wooden disc from Hobby Lobby.
my younger grandsons love playing
Tic Tac Toe
I plan on this just sitting on a table on the
deck. Due to nosey Lily however
I will put the disc in a
cloth bag to keep them from
going and falling between the
Protein.....or lack of...
means bad teeth and
loss of hair. I wash my hair
with Rosemary Essential Oils
in the shampoo which helps and
I am trying to be sure I
do PROTEINS instead
of carbs....but I am losing
handfuls of hair dialy....so
a friend suggested this.
Gotta get some!
My sis in law sent me this pic,
she said she thought of me and
something I would do...
YEP...she is right.
Gotta find some tall flowers now!
50ish bday bash tonight.
Taking my best friend Debbie
with me but before she gets
here I have some cleaning to do...
It is just barely over 10am and even
with the fan on the heat is
picking up so I will be moving
this party (today's life) to the
inside and cleaning!
I mowed the yard Thursday before 9am
to beat heat so the yard looks
great for the weekend. Will need to
water plants before Deb and I leave.
With this party in mind I wanted
to pick a cool dish to take.
Thought about macaroni salad so I
went to FB and asked for recipes.
Folks kept getting that and pasta
salad messed up and combined.
My mac salad usually consist of
elbow noodles, mayo, hint of mustard,
boiled eggs and dill pickles. Debbie
suggested green peas. Well, that all
sounded great but I decided a making a
great pasta salad so that is how I
My pasta salad consist of
tri color cork screw type
noodles (I don't know what they
are called and right now I am parked
in my chair on the deck and not going in to
look at the box!!)....
mayo and a hint of Italian dressing
for spices. Tomato, carrots, black
olives, green peas and corn (frozen works
best cause when cooked they don't get all
mushy). Salt, pepper and parsley.
Now with those said, how do you fix
your pasta and mac salad?
Thinking of throwing together
a garlic pull apart bread also!
With food on the mind let me share
this with you...
Don't that look good?
I am a beef person, love it,
rather have it...
but with my surgery I don't
eat much and I sort of like
the one dish meals.
I had so ground chuck in the
fridge that needed cooking
so in the skillet it went
along with onions, and garlic.
I also threw in some soy sauce,
basil, orageno (love these two
taste). Salt, pepper and some
turmeric (for inflammation)..
In other skillet with butter and water
I cooked down carrots, corn and
broccoli (I only eat that if I can hide it
in other food).
OH MY GOSH.....it was good.
Share your one dish meal if you like...
Update on Nika, son and daughter in
laws dog. I got a text yesterday
evening that brought tears to
"Nika passed. Thank you for
That was from Britney.
I have a card going in the mail
today for them.
I know the pain of this and
it hurts that they have to
go through this.
Cory has had animals put down
before but he told me that this
one was really rough.
