A New Beginning

I'm taking the plunge into Blogland. After reading and enjoying everyone else's blogs it's time to start one of my own. My friend Tami, at "the lady in the stone house" had a blogging tutorial at her home the other night and while I have achieved the basics I still have a long way to go. I have no clue how to add a picture and can tell that I will be challanged daily with the technical aspects!
I've been getting over a cold and really have nothing exciting to report. I didn't even make it to church with my family today. My husband and son have been busy making new cupboards for my pantry.We had a leaky shower, back in November, and are still waiting to have all the wood floors replaced. My pantry is an odd shape and didn't have a lot of storage, so my Brilliant husband came up with some ideas. He cut into the walls on the sides of the pantry and put shelving between the studs. He stained and trimmed it out and it looks amazing. Now he is building furniture-like shelving and cupboards to go on the back wall. Everything is built and primed, but I need to sand and paint. I'm really excited to have it all done and will post pics as soon as I learn how!!! The pantry innards have been in my bedroom for 4 months now and I am definately looking forward to getting them back where they belong.
I'm thinking salmon for dinner tonight. So easy, so good with Aunt Lisa's salmon sauce. Absolutely to die for! I will take pictures and hopefully post someday and add the recipe! I never seem to have any trouble coming up with the main dish, it's the side dishes that give me grief. Does anyone else have that problem? When I do come up with one or two , they seem to go with the main forever. I have no flexablility! So,,,, tonight will probably be fettucini alfredo, from the box, and a salad or vegetable. That's it, no more, no less. Sounds pretty boring, but it's a family favorite!

  1. I am so proud of you. It is really cute too. My sides are similar. You probably have home grown and preserved green beans though... Me, um, no.
    I am so excited for our babies this week. Flying all by themselves!
    I am also excited for us, if Max is gone it is very peaceful here!
