I am kitten-sitting for my son. He got her and her brother from a friend who rescues strays. She likes to play, sleep, eat, play with her brother and sister dogs, and twin brother kitten, Atlas.
Tween Halloween Costume Ideas
Tweens (ages 10-12) are generally looking for a fun or creative costume that shows off their personality. Many traditional costumes are considered too childish but they are not yet ready for grown up fare, if it is too scary or "sexy". Here is some advice to help your tween choose what to wear this Halloween.
Spanish Style Shrimp and Rice
This is a twist on traditional Spanish rice made with shrimp. It's almost like a Paella, but with several steps pulled out, making it a very easy to put together meal. I love to make this when I have cooked rice to use up.
A very nice, refreshing salad that pairs perfectly with a meat entree or at a BBQ party! Feel free to alter this recipe with your preferred tomatoes, greens, herbs, choice of cheese.
3D Hot Air Balloon Card
This is an adorable handmade card featuring a 3D hot air balloon in a cloudy blue sky. Let your recipient know that the sky's the limit!
Incognito (Tiny Frog on Bird Bath)
Look to the left of the bird bath on the rim. A little mini frog is perched there trying to look like the big ceramic frogs peering over the sides. Do you think he thought I might not notice? Such a little cutie.
These are tasty apple snacks that look like smiling mouths. They are so easy to make, kids will have fun assembling them... and devouring them!
Making Batty Pudding Cups
Halloween is the perfect holiday for making cute party snacks and treats. This is a page about making batty pudding cups.
This "handy" snack was always my mum's lovely way of trying to give us something healthier than candy on Halloween. It is cute in a spooky way, and that always makes up for the lack of chocolate. Okay, part of the time!
Halloween Rice Balls
I love making Japanese rice balls (Onigiri). In Japan, it's very popular to go all out decorating rice balls any time of year. Over here, I do it more for Halloween. Enjoy this edible craft!
Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume
I've seen a lot of creepy, gory costumes using a zipper and special effects kits to make people look like they have zombies underneath their unzipped skin. My costume this year is a take on that, but showing that under my skin, I am a girl made of gold.
Green Apple Monsters
Aren't these little monsters adorable? They're mostly fruit, so you won't feel too bad munching on them. Play around with their teeth and eye spacing to give them each some character. After slicing the apples, this would be a great edible craft for kids. Have fun!

Gardening Tips and Advice
Floating Flower Bed for the Hummingbirds
We don't have much area to plant flowers in our yard as it's mostly concrete everywhere and an in-ground pool, so we had an idea for our backyard hummingbirds. That was to give them some real nectar, from real flowers.
Hide the Plant Saucer Inside the Pot
Not a fan of plant saucers? No problem, you can hide the saucer inside the pot! Here's a free way of making a saucer. Using any sturdy container that will fit inside your pot, like for me - a greek yogurt container. Then cut the yogurt container down. Place yogurt container inside and you're done.
Protecting Delicate Blooms from Summer Heat
During these massive heat waves, don't let your flowers wilt and die. Use a patio umbrella to protect them. My spider lilies were wilted and dying from 103 heat (1st picture bottom left.) I gave them some extra water and used a patio umbrella to protect them and it brought them back to their beauty.
Yellow Sticky Traps for Flying Insects
I have many household plants throughout my home. I used indoor soil for these plants and didn't think there would be any flying insects. My friend introduced me to these yellow sticky traps (she actually gave me a handful). They are rather large double sided sticky traps so I cut them down in smaller pieces and placed them into my potted plants. A few hours later, the traps are already working!
How to Make a Plant Terrarium
Here are my step by step instructions on how to make a plant terrarium with no drainage. Plant terrariums with no drainage require little maintenance - you only need to water every 2 to 3 weeks, or when needed.
New Retaining Wall and Early Plantings
During the summer of 2018 we added a second tier retaining wall to our front yard. It improved the existing steep slope that was mostly useless, as it was difficult to water and slippery to try and weed.

Household Bleach Review
I've read labels all my life. One of the first I remember reading was on a brown glass Clorox bottle. A lot of accidents occurred with that thin glass container. Here, plastic is definitely an advantage. My focus in this review will be on the percentage of sodium hypochlorite in the cleaner.
