Let's Talk About Wayne's Camellias

Today I'm taking a break from painting updates and sharing beautiful Camellias.  Do you have some of these in your gardens?  Mama had some beautiful ones and my sister Gwen does now.  They are filled with blooms that are so spectacular.  I love the fact that to me they look like trees filled with roses.  Wayne a schoolmate of mine has allowed me to share his beauties with you today.

Would You Like To See Our New Porch Floor?

You know it may sound funny but after choosing the blue for the ceiling the next hardest decision I had to make was the floor decking stain color.  That really surprised me and I don't know why.

Hibiscus House Has A Haint Blue Porch Ceiling!

I've shown you the new roof which I love by the way.  Now it's time for the house painting itself. Today I share with you the porch ceiling that I've wanted for a few years.  

Slow Cooker Beef For Use In Recipes

We are so busy these days and at times just plain tired.  Beef with a few ingredients can be added to a slow cooker and then used in many of your favorite recipes.  You can also cool and refrigerate for up to two days to use. I think if we take a little time to do these things it makes it easier to prepare meals for our family.  

Once you decide what you will be cooking you can prepare the other ingredients. Just store them in the fridge until use in the meal.  This will make fixing your meal a snap!  You can then work with peace of mind, knowing that your meal will be easy tonight. You may want to just relax or go shopping, it's up to you.

Cleaning Out Clearing Out!

Fabric Cabinet

When one reaches my age (I sound like my grandma) and is a sentimental pack-rat a huge amount of "stuff" has been collected. You know the sentimental, the extra for when you need it. So and so gave me this it would be rude to part with it, (you know I've only had it 10 years!). That kind of stuff. What to do what to do?

We Have a New Roof!

Hurricane Matthew left a path of destruction behind especially in some areas.  We weren't in the worst area for sure but it did leave some damage.  We now have a new roof and I wanted to show it to you. I know we're excited about a roof!  Drum roll please!
