The Link Party where anything goes!!

Welcome, all!! And thank you for returning, participants!!

Wow!  What a week!  The weather just cannot make up its mind if it wants to be cool or hot!!  Of course, the days it wants to be hot are the days that I’m stuck in the shop for 10 hours.

I’m already in the process of working on stocking up on Halloween candy and planning my costume.  I really dislike the fact that my town is having Trick or Treat on Monday.  I understand that it’s on the actual day of Halloween, but it’s a school night, and I think that it ruins the experience when you can’t go home afterward and indulge.  Does anyone else think that Trick or Treat should be held on the weekend only?

What’s New This Week…

Sprouting a Winter Garden

With summer gently turning to autumn, and all of the garden vegetables slowly withering and no longer producing, it’s maybe time to start thinking about moving your homegrown food indoors for the winter.

 As satisfying as it sounds, however, the truth is that unless you have a greenhouse or a perfectly placed window, most produce can’t grow in winter’s limited light.

Sprouts, however, are a completely different story.  They grow wonderfully indoors and add some fresh flavor to a wide array of dishes.  That freshness is sure to placate your “homegrown” palate during those long winter months.  Sprouts are also incredibly healthy.  Inside just a single seed is everything it needs to grow into an entire plant.  That’s why these gorgeous little plants are such a great source of nutrients.

Wow!  I have been super busy this week and I can’t wait to get it all up and shared with you all.  Canning season is still going strong, even though I can see the end coming nearer each morning.  It’s getting to be cool enough in the morning that I have to throw on either a flannel shirt or a hoodie just to make it through the morning at work.  How is the weather where you are?

I don’t normally do this, but I want to make sure you all know that Martha Stewart Living is on sale on Amazon for only $5!!  That’s an entire year for only $5!!  Run over now and grab it while you can.

How to Let Your Indoor Cat Have Some Outdoor Time

When to let your fur baby out the door and then get her safely back in.

As a proud Momma to my fur babies, I know the desire that a couple of them have to get outside and roam.  Our little feline friends may not look much like their large African cat counterparts, but the same desire to explore and hunt in still inside of their little psyche.

When the weather is warm out, and you are wanting to take your cup of joe outside and enjoy the weather, your furry little companion is wanting to do the same (without the coffee, of course). Continue reading

Sorry, I’m running late on getting this posted.  I’m in a frenzy of trying to keep up with getting the garden produce preserved in the few hours that I have each evening.  I had a friend give me 20lbs of apples, which of course needed canned into apple pie filling. LOL  So if you missed me yesterday, I was slaving over a hot stove.  😉

I hope you all are having a wonderfully busy & productive week also!
