This past week I’ve been over to McKinney with my mother- and sister-in-law visiting a friend of Jodi’s who moved there back about 20 years ago. Gini and I went over to the City of McKinney’s Vital Statistics building and happily found a microfiche of her grandfather and grandmother’s marriage license from 1897!

On Friday evening, we went to a Texas Rangers’ game down in Arlington. They ended up losing but we enjoyed getting out and trying some ballpark foods and listening to the crowds and announcer, and enjoying the ballgame live.

Saturday was a workday and Gini, Jodi and Corey (my nephew, who flew in on Friday morning) drove over to Farmersville to watch an IOOF and a group of local re-enactors honoring of an 1812 soldier from the area. Because of the busy week, I didn’t go but I would have enjoyed the ceremony. I slept all Saturday afternoon.

Corey showing off his perfect pizza!

Sunday we enjoyed baking homemade pizzas out in the Ooni and then we worked on a satin banner project Gini is making for a future IOOF ceremony.

This banner will have a purple backing and other images placed around it and wording at the top and bottom. Should be neat when it is all done!

Since Monday, I’ve been down with a cold or Covid-type feeling illness… If it is Covid related, two days on, the vaccine is beating it down and I am feeling better today. 🙂

And thank you, friends! We had 84 links up last week, and there were so many good posts to look through to feature. Keep ’em coming!…

Happily this week I have some news on our new garden shed! I received a text this week from Wolf Valley Buildings.com wanting to schedule our shed’s arrival, so… Now it’s all about prepping the site and removing all the junk in that area, including the current shed.

Next, as you will see here, I finished the painting in our master bedroom and bathroom. What a big project! As any of you painters out there know, it was about 100 hours from start to finish for the three areas of commode, bathroom and the 15′ x 17′ bedroom with 14′ ceilings at the peak. The crown moulding had never been painted in any of the areas and was put up with just original primer on it, so that all needed special attention. I didn’t get rid of the “alligatoring” from humidity like I should have in the bathroom area, but will another time. I wanted to finish before my mother-in-law and sister-in-law arrived. They are here now and the bedroom was finished this Friday.

So now it’s back to focusing on the garden with prep for the garden shed!… :💜

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

A Star-Spangled Blue Jean Recycle Placemat Project ~ a fun idea I’ve had waiting for this pair of jeans to finally wear out in order to make!
A Glowing New Look for Our Master Bedroom/Bathroom ~ So happy to have this job completed but really just so happy to have a light and bright bedroom and bathroom now! Really loving it!!

Share Your Style #298

Welcome, friends, to this week’s Share Your Style #298!!! Happy Wednesday to you all!

This link party is for home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes and the like, but you are more than welcome to share any of your family-friendly posts with us all. Please feel free to share this post too and join my small but loyal band of friends. I appreciate you!
 As always, I am glad that you are here…

Woowee! I am so sorry about last Wednesday… I should have called off the week before as I knew I was getting my second Covid-19 vaccine last Wednesday morning, but then thought I’d be back in time (and feel well enough to run SYS). Well, at 6:00p.m. I was still in Oklahoma and by 8:00p.m., the time I got home, I was beginning to “freeze.” I had the usual reaction (again) with fever and chills, body aches, head ache and just sleeping hours…

This week, I am good, except during the time between the first and second shots, I was tripped backwards by a student at school, so… I have a broken tailbone (looked like a spiral fracture, but I could be wrong). Now I am out on Worker’s Comp leave! Crazy year…

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!! He is risen!!! I got no Easter posts out, really. I’ve been in the winter funk for a while and with so many changes at work (plus getting the virus in the fall, and now this injury…), I have been feeling overwhelmed. With this leave, I should have plenty of time to get myself back to “normal.” 😉

Enjoy this week’s features, friends! It’s good to be back… 🙂

I am Barbara Chapman and I’d love it if you’d follow me here on my blog and on any of my other social media sites, too.  Thank you!💜 

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

No posts this past week but I do want to share our Miss Kim lilac in bloom! Last year it bloomed in a lovely light purple, but I think I didn’t feed it enough so the blooms are a pretty white!

I will be sharing more from the garden soon! Lots to still plant from the Oklahoma trip last week, plus an update coming on the brick mow strip around the new planter beds…

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Well last week was a complete bust blogging-wise, wasn’t it? We had no internet from Valentine’s Day Sunday morning until late Friday or Saturday morning, I forget now. I just know that once we had internet service again, I was busy WRITING!!!

I had all of my principal photography done, I just couldn’t create any posts… But, since so many people were without power and heat, nor still some without water here in Texas (something some of our school families are experiencing right now because of major water main pipes freezing in last week’s storms), losing the internet was nothing in the scheme of things.

I do have FOUR back-to-back posts up for you this week:

This morning’s blog hop ~ A Hopping Good Spring Mantel Display, part of a new hop you will want to check out: Blogging Seasonal Inspiration with Terrie of Decorate and More With Tip and Cindy of The Crowned Goat. Do stop by and maybe look to join the fun!
And yesterday’s monthly Pinterest Challenge: Looking to Spring ~ A Sofa Table Vignette.

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Niky from The House on Silverado brings us our first feature with this easy DIY Farmhouse Coffee Mug Stand! I love how she used these hanging hooks!
Vintage natured inspired vignette with vintage bird pictures, vintage books, evergreens, pinecones, and moss hearts in a vintage wire heart basket

I am sooo stinkin’ proud of Katie of The Preppy Empty Nester! Here is her journey through weight loss (thought this was appropriate since we just got through the holidays!) and how we can change our dietary habits, too ~ Rules and Tools of My Weight Loss Journey. Way to go!!!

Honorable Mention

STRESSED GUARDIAN ANGEL
Valeria of J East of Eden shared a wonderful DIY knitting post but I couldn’t pick up any of the photographs of her knitting; HOWEVER, I could pick up this gem, which was in the sidebar! (Soooo me!!! )
I cracked up when I read this and I hope you will, too. Seriously, though, do stop by and check out Valeria’s Mod Denim Knit Kitchen Towel post. All the instructions and several knitting photos are right there to follow in this “How To.”

Wintertime Baking ~ Persimmon Cookies! {Yum!}

Happy Saturday, friends! Our weekend began with a light rainstorm around 6:00am so since I was up early letting Yoda outside, I just happened to come back into the kitchen and check my four persimmons and… They were soft and ripe!!! A perfect morning to bake some persimmon cookies… :)’

Persimmon Cookies Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar

1 egg

2 cups all-purpose flour AND 1 tsp. baking powder (***I used 1 cup bran + 3 cups all-purpose flour in this batch. The bran gives a nice texture to the cookie.)

1 stick butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup of persimmon pulp ~ grind skin and insides of persimmon in blender (cut off leafy tops and compost them). *** 4 persimmons makes about 2 cups of pulp

1/2 tsp. baking soda in pulp (set aside after blending together)

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp’s of ground nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and salt

1 cup raisins or nuts (***I used both chopped pecans and golden raisins)

optional: 1 cup chopped dates

***This recipe doubles well and cookies can be frozen unbaked or baked.

Instructions:

Blend persimmon pulp with 1/2 tsp. baking soda per cup of pulp until creamy; set aside. Cream sugar and butter together, scraping sides and bottom to mix well. Add in the egg(s), vanilla, and pulp mixture – mix well creaming this wet mixture.

Add dry ingredients – flour(s) and blend well, then add in fruits and chopped nuts. Mix just until blended.

Drop by teaspoon/scooper onto greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Cook slowly at about 325 deg. F to 350 degrees until golden brown on top. ***I cooked these at 335 deg. for 18 – 21 minutes. Cookies will spring back but should be thoroughly cooked on the bottoms. Add more time as necessary and begin checking at 12 minutes when using higher temps. Enjoy!!!

I shared on Instagram today that my first fiancé’s mother, Belle, would bake these cookies for me a lot back in the early 1980’s. I am so glad I wrote down the recipe from her collection! And these cookies today turned out just as I remembered them… YUM!

I added chopped pecans and golden raisins and they add a nice flavor and crunch to these chewy cookies. :)’

Bunny Guinness via her YouTube channel

While each batch of cookies baked, I watched garden shows on the tele… I found Bunny Guinness recently and really like her landscaping! She is really good and creates massive landscapes for her clients across the UK. This is her home’s north garden sitting area. Just lovely!

Needless to say, today’s cookies aren’t going to last very long…

Now I wish I’d bought more persimmons! Lol!!! 😉

Enjoy this recipe,

Barb 🙂

Warm and Cozy Texas-Sized Banana Bread Muffins + Recipe

Happy weekend, friends! Fall is such a wonderful time for working outside in the garden as the weather is cooler and the sun has lost its heat making being outside just so much nicer. Fall is also wonderful for getting back in the kitchen and getting back to baking…

Today I am sharing one of my favorite things to bake in the fall and it is my mother’s Banana Bread recipe with a slight twist ~ turning them into Texas-sized muffins!

Basic Banana Bread Recipe

3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

2 cups flour (*I used 1/3 whole wheat but you can also use bran flour for more texture)

3/4 cups sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup nuts (*I used pecans this time)

chopped nuts to add to the muffin tops

Recipe:

Take bananas and mash them very well. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until light then add to bananas. In another bowl, mix: the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.

Add this to the banana mixture then add 1/2 cup of nut meats, chopped. Stir well and put in buttered 9″ x 5″ loaf pans (*or muffins tins like mine!). Bake 1 hour for loaf pans and 20 – 25 minutes for Texas-sized muffins. For regular muffin tins, bake for 15 – 20 minutes. This recipe is perfect doubled, tripled or quadrupled for gift giving! Also freezes well.

These muffins are perfect for eating on the go and will stay moist even when you just want to eat only half of a muffin. I do this pretty often and just leave the other half in the basket or in a large Ziplock style bag until later.

I hope you will try making some banana bread for your family this fall or winter! Adding walnuts or chocolate chips to the batter changes the recipe enough to become a dessert muffin or loaf.

Just and FYI: I spent yesterday working on pulling in and formatting many of your email addresses into a spreadsheet. I would like to add you to my new email; however, as per all the special international laws regarding spam, I need your permission. If you would like to be on my mailing list, please sign up in the sidebar (or in the pop-up from Mail Chimp, if it works!).

I won’t send out emails everyday ~ that’s just not me. If it is once a week, it will probably be for Share Your Style since SYS is like a recap for what I’ve done over the week anyway. Anyway, I could really use the support!

Sharing with

Hearth and Soul ~ April J. Harris

Enjoy these yummy muffins,

I finally was able to get into a primary care office yesterday and I began antibiotics today to clear out the rest of the pneumonia. 

I am scheduled to go back to work next Thursday. Discussions have been texting back and forth on really cracking down on our students to wear their masks 100% of the time… Pray, would you?, that I don’t get the virus again and that our school can get through this and get healthy. Thank you! 💜

Share Your Style #279

 

Happy SYS Wednesday, y’all! Welcome to this week’s Share Your Style #279This link party is for home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes and the like, but you are more than welcome to share your family-friendly posts with us all.

This week is a bit of a catch-up for the past two Share Your Style’s since I’ve been soooo blasted sick with COVID-19 again. It’s 10 days of fevers and aches. It’s no joke and I absolutely hope You Never Get Sick With It! 

I’ll be home from work for another two weeks and the doctors want me to check in with a pulmonologist after I get better. They are worried about “fibrosis?” in my lungs (permanent scarring). I need another lung x-ray in six months. 

Any of you doctor or nurses out there, can you tell me anything else? I know I get really tired now. I also know this is only Day 12 since I came down with the initial fever. I am grateful for longer time off to heal… This time, the viral pneumonia came on quicker than last January/February. It seems to be abating. Anyway, friends, thank you for all of your kinds thoughts, prayers and encouragement. I know many of you live with your own physical ailments ~ thank you for sharing with me. 💖 I’ll be here for you… 😘
