Life Snippets #22

I haven't done a photo purge in a long time.  A very long time. So we've got pictures from summer, up until now.


I'm startin' with the one watermelon we grew, picked, and ate this August.  Kind of exciting, no?  It was one of the little varieties, and the kids tore that sucker up, straight off the vine.












Sticking with the summer theme, I looked all over for The Girl one morning, to the point of getting a wee bit worried.
Everyone else in the house was still asleep.  She's always the first one up and moving.
I finally found her out back, doing this.








The Cat.






Homemade crepes with peanut butter, nectarines, and honey.






More of the nectarines, turned into an amazingly delicious steak salad for dinner.







I wouldn't call them friends, but at this point, The Cat totally tolerates The Puppy.  
And The Puppy has learned to not be up in his business all day.
I can't believe how little she is in these pictures.



This is him attempting to look nonchalant.  While sitting DIRECTLY in front of her food and water bowls.
He slept on the mat for a solid week and a half.
Cats, I tell ya.





 I swapped the dresser with the wine cabinet in the dining room again.
I know, the rearranging is never ending.
Snapped a couple pics before the Christmas decorating hits this weekend.




And last, today I snapped some pics of a bouquet I made last week.
It's on its way out, so figured I'd capture it before it gets composted.
Thank you, Tamara, for your grandma's awesome planter.
I love it.
I stuck three vases down in to hold the greens.
The two kale plants are still in their 4-inch grower's pots - I hadn't gotten around to planting them yet, so into the house they came.
I originally put it all together for a special dinner I did for my parents this weekend, but it ended up being just a tad too tall for a centerpiece.
So it moved to the coffee table.









This is what I mean by tolerating.











And that's all I've got for today.
Tomorrow morning, we're headed to Hood River for the feast at my aunt's house.
I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Here comes Christmas.

  3. That steak salad looks good!!! Your new planter is really cool and I love what you planted too. Your kids are great. I'd like to plant some melons for my kids next year.

  4. How sweet it is to be able to grow your very own watermelon. It just isn't warm here long enough to grow watermelon. Oh sweet moments....when we find our daughter's making their own fun. My daughter does the same kind of things like your daughter is doing there in the pictures. Oh CREPES!! I have never made my own but have been wanting to for well over a year now. I think I have pinned tons and tons of crepe recipes on pinterest, but yet to make them. Can you give me your recipe? Love love love that planter.

  6. Puppies and kittens grow so fast. It's not fair. Your photos are fabulous, as always. I love the girl out making her own play food. My kids used to do that too. Precious. ... I had to laugh about the spider falling prey to the vacuum cleaner. If he would have just stayed outside where he belonged....

  7. Your kids are sooo cute...and growing like weeds. :)
    That watermelon....oh my....makes me wish for summertime again.
    Your crepes look and sound amazing ....think I'll make some for lunch with peanut butter but I'll have to use grapes and apples since that's all I have....

  8. Hi Mindy!
    It feels like it's been forever since I've stopped by!
    I always enjoy seeing your "snippets" posts! It's so fun seeing your beautiful kids, that SUPER cute pup of yours, and your garden!
    Oh! I saw the post about your new fence. It's beautiful!! I would never have thought that a horizontal wood fence could look so good . . . but it looks amazing in your yard!!
    Your Fall centerpiece is so pretty. It reminds a little of my Thanksgiving centerpiece from last year. How did your Fall dinner go?? I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE PHOTOS and read more about it!!
    I hope you're having a great week!
    Suzanne

  9. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I like the arrangement that you made and I am so impressed with your watermelon! I could never grow a watermelon here. Our season is too short. Cats are so much more complex and sophisticated than dogs. I bet the cat and the puppy keep things interesting.
