Smashed Rhubarb and Strawberry Tart

Smashed Rhubarb and Strawberry Tart

I did it, I did it! I am jumping from joy; my heart has grown ten times bigger. I can’t stop bragging. I just tried and I did it! All weekend I’ve been strutting around with a puffed up chest because I did it and I’m pretty darn proud of myself. It just amazes me […]

Little things make the heart sing

  (Photo taken with iphone driving down the road to our cabin…window up obiously) I’ve been blogging for years about the progress on our cabin.  Our little piece of heaven in Big Sky country.  The cabin itself has gotten to the point of really being finished.  Oh we have our issues (like no hot water […]

Our motivation to clean-up?  I had invited our year-round neighbors over for dinner.  If you remember my last post, my spit chicken the […]

Chicken on a Spit=Epic fail!

Now that the Safari is done and weather is cooperative, we’ve been able to head up to the cabin.  McGyver and I went up one weekend on our own and got it ready for this year’s use.  It was a quick overnighter, nothing to exciting, just relaxing mostly. While we were up there, I decided […]

I Told You So

Ever get that feeling, you know that niggling little feeling that something is not good? The feeling you get when you watch, lets say a horror movie, and the person is about to open the door…don’t do it, don’t do it, there’s something baaad behind the door.  You know they know it, but they do […]
