It’s cooler now and heading towards 2013

It’s been a whole year of nifty stuff…

This past year has been our first in our new home. I love the views from the back porch in the winter. The views from Texas were okay, but they consistently lacked character— there was no beauty…

Living in the Chattanooga valley there’s lots to look at.

Vacation in Daytona Beach…

2012-06-27_19-03-57_974

My/our vacations have always been to Chattanooga, or to a relatives house/home somewhere. It’s never really been to anywhere, with the exclusion that we went to Gulf Shores with my dad once and we had a great time.

But this year, when I was asked to go Daytona Beach, I was a little reluctant to do so because of money, but ultimately I decided to go. I was dreading the drive and I was skeptical about going, but we went, we drove and we got there and it was so nice.

Between my mom, my sisters and Becca they found and picked out this place where we could all stay; a place where everyone had their own room— and everyone had their own bath. It was a nice place. It was much nicer than I was expecting. The place was a condo on south Daytona, on the 11th floor; the view was great.

Here’s an idea… for those miscellaneous lids

imageIn my cabinet, we’ve got [or had] a bunch bowls and lids for that were all kind of laid in the cabinet to be found and sorted out later.

My mom used to keep a drawer in the kitchen— all lids went in that drawer so you could effortlessly find the lid later without having to dig through the bottom cabinet…

Anyway, Becca was at Target the other day and they were selling lid organizers that fit right inside the cabinet door; you could just drop the lids in there and you can reach in, get a bowl and all the lids should be right there.

But the problems with the concept was that this thing was $8…

I thought what about a file holder, or an inbox you would hang on the wall… So, we went to the office section of the store, and sure enough; the inbox for folders was $2.

Instant savings… same function.

Play’n catch up…

I believe we are formally settled in here…

We’ve been keeping busy and now that the good weather is coming back around our way, I’ve been working on a few projects.

By the way, some of you’ve seen this, but this is my view from my back porch…

That’s Lookout Mountain over there, just to the left… It’s nice at sun set…
