Weekend Update


Just a quick weekend update. Saturday.... well Saturday can be my favorite day of the week. I get to sleep in, catch up, relax and have fun. It is also Breakfast Buddy day. Do you and your friends get together to do something on a regular basis? We do too! Once a month my friends Janine and Robin and I get together for breakfast on Saturday mornings to "catch up" on each other's lives. It's food, fun, laughter and therapy! We've been doing this for YEARS! This Saturday it had been even longer than a month so there was a lot of catching up to do. We went to CoCo's in Pismo Beach and must have been there 3 hours before any of us was ready to go. Robin's son and daughter-in-law recently bought their first home and Janine had just returned from a family visit to Albuquerque. It was such a fun visit and I really LOVE these girls. Can't wait until next month's breakfast!
Then I went home and was sick for the next 24 hours. I know! A perfectly good weekend and I spend it practically in bed. I think it was the flu but must have been the 24 hour version.
Sunday we decided to go out for a little drive. We went to see my daughter Melody in Santa Maria and on the way home we drove past the Dana Adobe in Nipomo. We were too late to go in for a visit, but visited with a couple of horses just beyond. Don't you LOVE this one with the beautiful Bethlehem Star on it's head.
I just wanted to ride away on him! I think I'm going to make some plans to visit the Dana Adobe really soon. I went to their web page and they have some really good information about the settling of the Nipomo area, land grants and the history of the Dana Family. I read where they are having a fundraising concert next weekend featuring Nu Monet. It's always fun to contribute money to help a good cause AND see a really great concert. Check it out, it's the 3rd item down on the left.

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 .
