A Week With Wilhelm


Looky Here!!! Isn't this a cute baby? He's my grandog Wilhelm. His Mommy & Daddy, my daughter-in-law and son, are busy with packing and getting ready to move this week. I offered to watch little Wilhelm for the week and they let me!! I'm jumping for joy! We took him down to the beach for a walk today with our weiner, Oscar Mayer, chihuahua, Rico and their "cousin" Brisa, a white German Shepherd. We made quite the quartet. Luckily, both weiners kept about the same pace although you could hear Wilhelm barking all the way up and down the beach. I'm sure it was barking with joy! He had the best time! Then we loaded them all up and brought them home. We have plans to do it all over again tomorrow.

Kristen and Wes III are moving back to this area from Tracy, CA where they have been living or the last 6 months. They will be living with us for a couple of months while they get their deposits together and decide if they are renting or buying in this area. I'm SO looking forward to them being with us for a while. 

The bathroom remodel is going very well. No, it's not going to be the 8 day makeover, but already things are looking up. The linoleum and tub have been taken out and thankfully, the floor isn't rotten underneath like I expected. We've figured out a way to hide that ugly cabinet, which I will share later in pictures, and the drywall was being done today. There was a medicine cabinet over the sink that was sunk into the wall and this time, we bought a mirror that flat to the wall and a separate cabinet so that "sinkhole" had to be filled. Then the cabinet makeover piece, a soffit, had to be shaped and adhered so it would look like it's been there forever. Mike held up the new cabinet today and, oh man, it looked SO nice! I can't wait until everything is in and finished. Wes has been taking lots of pictures as they go so we will have a bunch to share as we go along.

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and

Coffee T. Rice House

Isn't this a beautiful Victorian Style home? You can't see all of it because of the shrubbery and trailer park at the base of the house. It made me curious about the history of the house so I looked it up. Here is what I found. This is the historical information I found written  HERE . Coffee T. Rice House Oceano, California History and Description: Coffee T. Rice was a wealthy financier, with enterprises throughout the State, who migrated from Ohio to San Francisco. When a railroad was surveyed through this area he envisioned an industrial center here and acquired various properties close to the right of way. He introduced celery production to the area. Rice started construction on his home in 1885 using the same craftsmen that were working on the Pitkin House. The house originally had 20 rooms and was painted yellow. Surrounded by well-kept grounds with various trees and a sundial, the house was approached by an oval driveway and a stone-pillared entryway. The grounds also in

Norwegian Pancakes (Norska Pannekaken)

Every culture has its pancake and this is the Norwegian version, a very light, crepe-like pancake that goes with just about anything. These "pancakes" are light and eggy and go with both sweet and savory fillings. When my chickens start up laying eggs in the Spring, we LOVE to make these pancakes, freezing the excess for another day. Yes, they freeze and thaw perfectly! Most people have the simple ingredients on their shelves and in their refrigerators SO LET'S GO! Original Recipe Can Be Found on the Outside Oslo Website   Here . Norska Pannekaken 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon Scandinavian vanilla sugar* 3 eggs 1 1/2 cups whole milk 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan Mix all ingredients except butter in a medium-sized bowl using a whisk or fork until the batter is smooth and you have no lumps.
