Hike To Soapstone Hill – Quabbin Reservoir


On a recent Saturday (April 11, 2020), Rob and I decided to head out to the Quabbin Reservoir, and in particular, Soapstone Hill. We had tried to get there a few weeks before, but the directions I had followed were a little misleading. Once I realized my mistake, those directions made sense, but still, […]

Reseller Winter Blues

As a reseller, I’m starting to get antsy. It’s now February 1st and I’m jonesing for some yard sales. Even the estate sale game has been a little slim. I’ve resorted to trolling Facebook Marketplace and even Craigslist for some furniture flips and smalls. Admittedly, I have plenty of furniture to work on, and […]

Out of the Book and On To the Table – Slow Cooker Beer Chicken

In my quest to become less of a recipe hoarder, I recently made a recipe that I found, called Slow Cooker Beer Chicken. It wasn’t as good as I’d hoped it’d be.

I’ve managed to keep up with my vow to become less of a recipe hoarder and more of a recipe maker. In my post back in November, I wrote about how I am very good at collecting recipes, but not so good at making new ones. I do love trying new recipes, but it’s […]

Are You a Recipe Hoarder?

Recently I’ve come to the realization that I’m a recipe hoarder. One day I was looking at my Recipes board on Pinterest and saw that I have collected close to 800 pins. How many of these have I actually made? Nowhere near 800, that’s for sure. I also have a cabinet full of cook books, and […]

Adventures At Niagara Falls & How I Kept My Camera Safe From All That Water

My family and I visited Niagara Falls for the first time this summer. It was amazing! So beautiful! It was about a seven hour drive pulling a pop up camper, and making several pit stops. Long drive, but well worth it.

We booked a camp site at Four Mile Creek State Park in Youngstown, NY, which […]
