Front Porch Musings


I really miss the island life.  No service....just normal life, live music, the beach, waves, good friends, and peace of mind.  It was so hard to adjust when we got back home.  How hard?

First, I was utterly frustrated to see that my kitchen was filled with processed foods.  Daughter K went on a shopping binge, and there was junk food and pop everywhere.  On the floor, on the fridge, counters and table.  That was even before I had check the front room.  I had a feeling she had a friend over while we were on vacation.

Breakfast scramble was made - sweet potatoes, onions, green bell pepper, jalapeno, spices, eggs and bacon.

Got the green and wax beans blanched and in the freezer.

Here is a photo of the winter hats I worked on over the weekend (my travel project).  Although I am still not booked for any holiday craft show at this time, I am still doing handiwork when I can.  I try and set an hour or half hour for myself daily.  I have to, or I'll lose my mind.

I am sorry to hear that you had so many junk foods in your home. I hope she did not disobey by having a friend over. I love the hats!

Kristina said...

Carol, well it's a friend she has over often, but never asked us permission. Thanks. I hope to sign up for a craft show to sell the hats this winter.

The island life is appealing to me too. I spent a year on Prince Edward Island and loved the summers there! The hats are lovely!

Kristina said...

Rain, life on the island is so peaceful. Thanks, I hope to sell the hats this winter.

Crafting keeps me sane as well.

The hats are great. Love them.

God bless.
