Oaty-Banana-Nut cookies…


… but this isn’t really about another recipe. Today I’m making Oaty-Banana-Nut Cookies. No recipe remember (heheh). I stirred up a quadruple batch because I’m…nuts. Then my quandary over cookie shapes came again. Which tastes better – round cookies or square cookies? I started cutting corners a long time ago and discovered how much cheaper and time efficient […]

Bear News


The ‘ol dog is getting fat and lazy. Nothing exciting has happened in awhile…until this evening. Suddenly she flew off the porch in a rage, barking and carrying on like the devil was approaching.

Planting My Babies


I’ve had enough of the guess-work. I don’t see minus anything in the forecast so my tomatoes, corn and cabbages are going out to their new garden home. I’m crossing my fingers. If it isn’t safe by now, when will it ever be? The tomatoes are getting yellow leaves. I’d say it’s from a lack of […]
