6.30.20 An update or two or three or maybe more things!

I now have partial dentures. Isn't that too special for words!  I've been snaggle-toothed for a… Continue reading 6.30.20 An update or two or three or maybe more things!

06.04.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – May Update

I truly had forgotten how much time and effort is needed to grow vegetables. And just when some are starting to ripen, the temperatures soar to the 90s which makes being out there really difficult. The only fruit that has required anything has been our blueberries. Since those are necessary for my brain health plus… Continue reading 06.04.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – May Update

05.27.20 The most amazing thing happened at our house this week!

I was in my craft room painting rocks and Roy walked up outside to the window. He said "Come outside now and bring your camera!" He had a big smile on his face!

03.30.20 Take a gander at these little gems!

For Christmas last year I gave our six grandchildren a gift for them to create and give back to me. My rock room gives me so much happiness painting my little creations. Even with all that happiness I still have nothing on the walls. I bought six 8x10 canvases for the grandchildren to paint something… Continue reading 03.30.20 Take a gander at these little gems!

01.26.20 Roy’s back door project

Roy started this "back door project" sometime in October of last year because the bottom of both sides of our back door had rotted and the baseboard next to it was rotted as well. There is no covering over the back door so rain hits the door and was somehow getting in. This blog post… Continue reading 01.26.20 Roy’s back door project
