Text color and Size.

Hi my Blogger friends. 
I have enlarged the text and brightened the color to make it easier for those that are having trouble seeing it. We are all getting a tad older, dang it, and some of our faculties are not as great as they once were like our eyes especially. I saw a sweet little older lady at the market the other day with glasses on and holding a magnifying glass. I was so impressed and told her that I was going to start doing that. I swear that on some items they deliberately make the text so small that you do indeed need a magnifying glass to read it. So, I would appreciate it if you let me know if this makes it easier to see and read my blogs.
Thank you, Hope you all have a great day.
Just trying to light the way and make it easier for us older folks.

Hi gang, Its a damp day here in Toledo Oregon again
Not raining but damp and misty and the perfect day for this pot
of Potato corn chowder w/ white cheddar cheese grated on top.

Some  Red Lobster biscuits and a little green salad will be just perfect for dinner tonight to go along with it. It Smells delicious and after sampling it a tad, I think it's another winner. I will add a few clams
to mine. Greg isn't big on clams or any seafood at
all for that matter. Crazy isn't it. 

Well, Dinner's ready. Now I can just turn it down and 
wait for Dad to get home. 
The Baxter and Phoebe's noses have 
been going crazy from smelling the bacon and all the goodies. Sorry kids this isn't for puppies. Its got cooked onions and they aren't good for dogs. I know you don't care but momma loves you.

Good Morning to all my Saturday bloggers.
This is what I woke up to this morning. It was so foggy I
couldn't see my ole house down below. Yep I used to live down at the bottom of this hill about 3 years ago. I so enjoy the view from here much more. This is what it looked like about 40 minutes later.

 Its a beautiful day today and the
sun decided to show it's wonderful

The Begonias and Lilies are loving  it as are the rest of the flowers and trees.

Baxter is taking his early morning
Nap and Phoebe is following his lead.

The sun is shining through the front window and I am working on starting my day. 

I don't have any specific plans but I am hoping to start some projects that I need to get going on. 
Not going to rush into anything today, It's 

This was our old house at the bottom of the hill. 
I sort of miss it. It was a cute little house. I miss the
smaller yard.

My beautiful Asian Lilies. Wish I had scratch and sniff, the aroma is Heavenly

Well since I have decided to start blogging again, I will put all my family and daily adventures here at my primitive nest. I will keep all my Handiwork such as quilting, crocheting, needle punch, rug hooking, and general needle work activities at

I know its going to take a while to get everyone back into the blogging mode since FB started taking over. I admit I was and still am hooked but I so want to detach myself from the social media buzz.  Its tough since that is where my family and friends all gather and contact me there instead of having to go to different areas like different blogs.

So I hope that you will be one of the few that takes a moment to say good morning and share your day on a more personal note. That is what I am going to do.

Please leave a message to let me know you stopped by. I am so happy that you did.

So are Phoebe and Baxter
Have a wonderful day ya all !!!
