Hangin’ around the yard…

Yesterday, Amelia and I started work clearing an area in our yard for a composting bin. I decided after watching a reality show about Alaskan Homesteaders that I should attempt to use the extra wood and scraps around our yard to build our own composting bins. We cleared the spot and then I was perusing google for a prototype when I ran into a problem…step one: don’t use treated wood!

That was the wood I had been planning on using from a deck remodel. Argh.

Step two: cutting the wood. That dusty circular saw in the garage looks pretty sharp AND baseball in the yard with Patrick, Ty, Baby Grif and Amelia seems like so much fun!

I love Halloween. It is one of my absolute favorite holidays. This year I had to deal with my pesky cat, Duncan getting into my garden beds…see my Renton Reporter column.

Learning a few tips and tricks from local gardeners, I finally figured out a way to grow pumpkins! Check out these glorious beauts! I am so friggin’ proud of myself.

Homemade Pizza at Camp Ossorio

I love making homemade pizza with my kids. Most people have no idea how easy and fun it is to make…the secret is adding seasoning to the dough (cheddar cheese powder, salt, garlic powder) to make it taste delicious and use my favorite local cheese by Beechers! Yum!
