What’s for breakfast

Sometimes we like to get up and make breakfast before we start the day. I wait for Ohiophotogrl to wake up and look for recipes on her phone.

This morning I found these eggs. However we are gonna use her new cookware and cook them with very little water. That’s right boiled eggs cooked with just a wet paper towel in the bottom of the pan. Here goes nothin…..

Wetted paper towel and put them in the Kitchen Craft cookware turned the eye in Med heat for 3 minutes.

Spun the lid till it felt like it was gliding. It was making a vaper seal and turned the heat down as low as it would go for 13 minutes. Took the lid off and cracked the shells…..the shells come off very easy! And the eggs….

Perfect! Mmmmmmmm breakfast is served! What are you having?

Ding Darling 

One of the many stops in this trip was to Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The J. N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is part of the United States National Wildlife Refuge System, located in southwestern Florida, on Sanibel Island in the Gulf of Mexico. It is named for the cartoonist Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling.


There is a museum when you first get there that has lots of cool things inside. (It’s also air conditioned in there :0) 


You can touch bones and skins of animals to see what they feel like. You can watch videos on different things that you can see in the refuge and most of all they have this really cool area where you can make something to take home.


Here is an example


We even met some fun people along the way. This is my new friend Monica!


What a fun place to take anyone that likes nature. We really enjoyed this place. After the museum you can drive your car, walk or take a team thru the refuge. There is a very small fee to do this and the wild life you see there is amazing! One other cool thing is check the coupon books that you pick up around the island. There was a coupon for a free reusable water bottle. They have filtered water stations through Sanibel Island. So having someplace to put water in was an added bonus! It’s hot in Florida and staying hydrated is mandatory!

We are having so much Fun! Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

The show…

I got so busy that I didn’t have time to post while I was away. This Scotty people are so much fun!


Here I am helping ohiophotogrl with her game. She ran a poker run while the show was going on and we raised $134 for rescue! What a fun group we had. 60 people turned in a hand. We gave away a deck of Scotty Dog cards and wooden nickels 


We sure had a lot of fun! What do you do with your friends?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

I love summer

I don’t get much down time but when I do I like to hang out with Luna…


We like to lay in the sun. We talk about all the stuff that is growing in the garden. Luna would eat everything in the garden if I didn’t watch her. She loves a good salad :0) 

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

National BFF Day!

Yesterday was National best friend day! Ohiophotogrl and I are BFFS. We do lots of great things together! One of our favorite things to do is watch our Cincinnati Reds sweep a series against the Cardinals. Ohiophotogrl’s aunt is a Cards fan so we have a little rivalry when we play the cards. It’s all in good fun. Who is your favorite team? Whose your best friend?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

How does your garden grow 

Ohiophotogrl and I have been busy putting the garden in. I had no idea how much work it really was.  We had to go get seeds and plants and the. We had to put them in he beds and buckets. Thank heavens now all we gotta do is water them and wait for them to grow. Here is what it looks like…


That’s one of the beds. We have lots of things planted. Cucumbers, carrots, tomato, potato, green beans, lettuce, sweet potatoes, and lots of herbs. Check back with us and see how we did!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Feb 20, 2013 Tax Time

Todays morning was really busy.  We had puppy duty making sure Luna was fed and taken care of and then we had to drop off some precious cargo and then we went to Belmont Tax Services on Waterviliet and let Mr Baughman do our taxes.  Mr Baughman has been doing ohiophotogrls taxes for a really long time.  They have been friends for a whole bunch of years :0)  Rumor has it they were boyfriend girlfriend once heeeeee heeeeeee.

After we signed on the dotted line we came home and filled out our FASFA forms as well.  This is the financial aid form ohiophotogrl has to fill out to go to help her go school.

Then there was homework and laundry.  I’m off to make sock bundles :0)

Wonder what we are going to do tomorrow?
