Second Stage

Jim is hard at work today laying the tile. I can tell it is going to be nice!

Our next project gets under way...

Somehow "I want to paint the bathroom" turned into a totally full make over. The new paint is only the beginning. Jim has accused me of starting a project only for him to finish. Hey, gotta keep him busy!

Pheasant weather

I was surprised to see this huge bird in our front yard yesterday. He was just walking around picking at the ground. I grabbed my camera and tried to take some pictures but they are not very good. By the time I crept out the back door and around to the front, Herman (our cat) had a beat on him too. Needless to say he hopped up on the fence and took off. Lately there have been a lot of geese flying over in formation too. I did get a nice shot of those.

Well, Jim is the latest victim of a bad economy. He has been laid off for the winter. He has a great attitude though and plans on working around the house getting some more projects off his list of things to do. My job seems to be secure. I will be working Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the day after. What a switch in roles. We are very thankful though for too many things to list here.

Home sick no more!

There is a blog called "Homesick Texan" with just about every authentic Mexican recipe you can think of and then some. These are the Sour cream chicken enchiladas. Lots of work but worth the effort.

Garden Goodies

We are finally enjoying some of our veggies from the garden. Jim's making a new batch of salsa every other day. The cantaloupe are small but sweet and the watermelons are too big for me to lift. The eggplants are still on the vine waiting for the perfect recipe.
