Wow, it has been so long since I've posted here, I nearly forgot how to do it. I've been meaning to get back into the swing of blogging again and have a friend that's been urging me to, so why not start here :) This past month I've used up a pile of wood we've had sitting on the side of our house for just this purpose. I have always wanted to grill table for the much needed counter space when cooking outside, so I built this bench. I've used it several times since and it works so well, I've wondered how I've ever done without one. After gaining some confidence with the table, I made this bench for some additional seating. I really love how they have tied the area in so well, creating this beautiful (to me) and cozy outdoor eating space.

Went on a trip to Tennessee about a month ago. It was so refreshing to experience spring. Here in Florida, we basically live in varying degrees of summer so an actual season in such a beautiful place was wonderful to see :) And so many creeks everywhere, my favorite!
The second to last photo is the tornado shelter on my Grandfathers property. It is a concrete shelter dug into the side of a hill, with space enough inside for a cot and a chair. It would make the best clubhouse for a kid.

Some photos from a beautiful dewy morning this week. I did a quick pickling on the jalapenos from last week and they came out delicious. We put them in burritos, burgers and lots more. I am going to start posting weekly so thanks if you have hung around this long :)

Good Morning! And Happy Valentine's Day. A new Mr. & Mrs. Mook, some jalapenos I will be pickling later and the clothespin Valentines my little guy made for his class 3 years ago. This year he opted for store-bought and for me to make fresh cinnamon rolls for the class instead.
