Green Onions

Did you know you can grow green onions without soil?! I recently read that all you need to do is put the white portion of the onion in water and put in front of the sun and watch them grow! I currently have 3 whites in a juice glass with some water sitting in front of the glass block window in my master bathroom. I got pretty excited when I saw the green of the onion appear! So far I don't smell the onion, so we'll see if an odor comes with more green. I don't seem to have much of a green thumb, but maybe I have a green thumb for green onions! :) Happy growing.

Finally, my ornament wreath!

I have been wanting to make an ornament wreath for a while now.  I finally went for it this Christmas, although, I made it after the holiday, but that's because I needed to buy a few more ornaments on sale.  I was trying hard to make a pattern out of it, then when I would lift the hanger up they all fell to where they wanted to, so I dumped the "pattern" out the window and just started stringing them however and in a quicker fashion.  When I ran out of room to add anymore I lifted it up and it turned out like this:

I still need to add a ribbon to hide the hanger, but I'll wait until next year when I'm ready to hang it up. Until now, it sits in the closet waiting to be hung. I would like to make a small one using bells though. I think that will be my next project when I find enough bells (currently I only have 8). I felt pretty accomplished to finish my first crafting project! :)

Long time again...!

August 22 is the last time I've blogged!!  Having a baby consumes all your time!  And when you do have some time, you want it for yourself.  I'm sitting on the couch at my parents house.  We drove from AZ to NE for a week, maybe more.  It's nice to have the family around, have someone else (mommy) cook and play with the baby.  I love how food magically appears!  I wish it did that at home too ;)  We had Jackson baptised today.  He was so silly during the whole mass, but no crying or tears.  We went out to eat at Summer Kitchen afterwards.  It was soooo good and I have been wanting it since I was pregnant.

Record Heat

Ugh I'm so over this hot hot summer!  I've never looked forward to winter so much.  This week is supposed to be record heat for August. 

With that being said.  It makes it hard to cook using the hot oven.  But today I've decided to not only turn the oven on to cook pork chops and roasted potatoes, I might as well bake a cake at the same time. 

We'll see how it all turns out tonight!

Cleanig is a Drag

Cleaning is such a drag.  You think that the stuff looks nice, but wait until you have to clean all those edges, borders and crevices.

I've been on my hands and knees in our kitchen floor scrubbing grout lines.  Something that needed to be done before we moved in or at least not this late in the moving process.  I've only been able to do small sections at a time since I can only manage to work on it while Jackson is napping.  The black grout now looks white again!  Using my little grout brush and some Zep bathroom cleaner, it's looking like new again!  Who knows when I'll need to do this again!  Hopefully it will last 6 months or more :)

Blinds are another pain in the butt!  Slowing working on those too
