Sundays on Silverado #165

foggy morning on the pasture

Life Lately Happy Sunday and happy October! Even though we are experiencing record high temps this weekend, we’ve still had some lovely Fall mornings recently. I love sipping my morning coffee in the screened porch and watching the sun come up over the pasture (retirement perk!). In other news, we’ve been installing our third beautiful closet from Wood Closet Designs, this time in the new addition to my daughter and son-on-law’s home. We had the cutest little assistant… The full […]

Evie at dance class

Life Lately Let them praise his name with dancing… Psalms 139: 3-4 Our miracle girl started dance class this week. Dance class. If you know how Evie’s story started, you know what a miracle she is. This is yet another step in her journey that reminds me of how much we have to be thankful for. She loves all things musical and jumped right into participating in dance class, even though she is by far the youngest in the group. […]

Fall Corner Cabinet

Life Lately Hooray for football season! We thoroughly enjoyed week one with two fun football celebrations. Some of our kids are Chiefs fans and some are Bears fans, and we got to enjoy both games last week with family gatherings. The Chiefs played in the NFL season opener last Thursday night, and 4 of the kids had tickets to the game. My husband and I drove down to Kansas City with them and got a room at the same hotel. […]

Smiley Nordic Ware pan

Life Lately I got lucky finding this like-new Nordic Ware pan at a thrift store for $5. It was fun to use it to make little smiley-face pancakes for Evelynn. I made an entire batch and put some in the freezer for easy rewarming the next time she’s here for breakfast. I also found three Nordic Ware donut pans that look brand new for $4.49 each. Apple Cider Donuts will be happening soon! The Weekly Features! Are you all feeling […]

Garden bench with tomatoes

Life Lately It’s been a busy week here on Silverado. Our youngest daughter is getting married in October, so wedding details are in full swing. Dinners have had to be super simple this week, with the least amount of cooking possible. Thankfully, the garden is still delivering fresh, ripe tomatoes, so my favorite caprese was on the menu. Another night we had this super simple Chicken Broccoli Alfredo. With very little effort, we had a delicious meal. Also this week, […]

Retirement basket

Life Lately This past week was the first week of school in my district, and the first time I wasn’t there in about 50ish years. My entire life has revolved around school in some form; grade school, high school, college, grad school, and 30 years of classroom teaching. It felt a bit bittersweet as friends were sharing all of their first-day-of-school photos, but at the same time, I felt blessed to be able to spend the first days of school […]

Retirement Frame

Life Lately Last Sunday, friends and family gathered here to celebrate the beginning of retirement with me. You can see some of the highlights in the reel below. ❤️ It was so fun. View this post on Instagram A post shared by The House on Silverado (@thehouseonsilverado) This past Wednesday was the first day that teachers in my district went back to work after summer break. Not being there for the first time in 30 years was both strange and […]

Hydrangeas and Peaches

Life Lately When we got back from vacation, my Little Lime Hydrangeas had bloomed beautifully! Since then, I’ve been cutting them for fresh flower arrangements indoors. They are just starting to get some pink around the edges, which means it won’t be long before I can cut some for drying to enjoy all fall long. You can see my super easy method for drying HERE. Since peaches and nectarines are in season right now, of course, I added a big […]

3 girls in Alaska

Life Lately We spent several days this week helping our youngest daughter move into a new apartment. The packing and moving part is the “un-fun” part, but I enjoy the organizing and decorating part. Does anyone else walk into a new space and automatically just start imagining how cute it could look with a little styling? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Me too! Just like my son’s townhome that I helped decorate earlier this year, she has some good basic pieces like a nice […]

Princess Evie

Life Lately Oh, we had such an incredible time on our vacation last week. I’m feeling a bit of “vacation depression” now. Does that happen to anyone else? This trip was a couple of years in the making– so much planning and dreaming and preparation. And then in the blink of an eye, it was over. We made so many memories though, and it made my heart so happy to spend a solid 8 days with my favorite people. I […]
