To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #193)

This link party is all about homemade, homemaking, DIY, recycling, upcycling, before and afters (of rooms, furniture, whatever) Wednesday Link Party #193

Link party #193. To Grandma’s House We Go! Its been an odd, hazy, gloomy, not-sunny-at-all, we-need-rain-so-bad, couple of weeks. Not complaining, its still been over 70 every day, but it is a bit odd. Its starting to feel like I’m just going to have a permanent fire danger warning on my phone forever… Lodi and I are getting a lot done now that spring is here. It feels sensational to be outside again and to enjoy our big deck and to plant something and get dirty! Hope you’ve all had some warm weather to enjoy as well! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #192. We finally reached the point of no return when it comes to the weather… hopefully lol it is MN after all! We planted flowers this last weekend and yesterday we planted out the garden! I’m kicking myself for not getting the garden planted a week sooner but life is just like that sometimes. We do the best we can! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #191. Well, in true Minnesota fashion, it snowed! A week ago I was really thinking we were going to get to plant this last weekend lol not so much. I got all of my peonies and other perennials covered that were popping up so everyone was safe and sound. This looks like its really finally it though and we won’t be seeing freezing again until… *crosses fingers* … maybe this fall!? This next weekend we’ll hopefully get all of our gardens planted – I totally miss the smell of dirt! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #190. All of our green houses opened up unseasonably early and everyone was SO excited even though its still not safe to plant quite yet. We’re all still hunkered down in quarantine here in MN so just getting to go look at plants and go somewhere different was a treat! Lodi and I are getting adjusted now that we’ve moved in together here at Grandma’s house. Under such awful circumstances in the world I’m really relieved to have him here with me.

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #189. Thank goodness for an early spring! Our weather has simply been gorgeous. Considering the current quarantine situation I know everyone is so relieved to be able to get outside to walk, run, bike, or just sit in the sun etc. Lodi and I are planning our gardens and working on our summer to do list. Still haven’t really got my feet back under me motivation-wise with everything that’s going on, but I’m working on it! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

This link party is all about homemade, homemaking, DIY, recycling, upcycling, before and afters (of rooms, furniture, whatever) Wednesday Link Party #188

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #188. WOW these are some very weird times we’re living in. Poor Lodi isn’t “essential” so he’s stuck at home losing his mind meanwhile I really think us essential employees should get some time off when all of this over lol. He’s the extrovert, I’m the introvert, so the fact that our places aren’t swapped is both horrifying and hilarious. I’ll be the first to admit though his OCD is giving us the cleanest house EVER and that’s not a terrible thing! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #187. I hope you guys had a good weekend! With the quarantine going on the only reason I remembered it was Easter was because I had several family members send out texts to everyone wishing them a Happy Easter lol. Lodi and I spent it on the couch watching Sherlock and eating way too much pizza… What a strange reality/world we’re living in. Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #186. My poor Lodi I fear is going to go absolutely stir crazy. He and Annie (the doggo) both went from a big city and going out daily to stores, gyms, malls etc. to BOOM: a very small town ten miles away and the four walls of my grandma’s house. Lodi the extrovert, laid off and sheltering in place while meanwhile I’m the introvert that never goes out and would love to be trapped at home for a couple of weeks and I’m the essential one *facepalm* Daily life is so surreal anymore!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #185. Wow we sure are living in some strange times these days. Anyone else watch the tiger documentary yet? Apparently it is a must see lol. I’m “essential” and I have never before scrambled so hard and been so stressed beyond recognition at my day job. I saw a Meme on Facebook the other day: “When all of this is over can us essential employees take a month off and you guys run things for awhile?” SO tired and I noticed today that EVERYONE I see working now looks exactly how I feel. We’re all in this together. I hope you are all safe and sound. Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

SORRY GUYS! I accidentally linked to this older party in my April 19th newsletter. Click here to go to the correct link party!
Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #184. Well, one bit of good news is that we seem to be seeing an unprecedented early spring! It’s lovely. Forty degrees and fifties in the forecast is just amazing. This time last year we were getting dumped on – getting over three feet of snow in just a couple of weeks. With what’s going on right now at least being able to get out of the house and take a walk etc. sure helps a little bit! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

This link party is all about homemade, homemaking, DIY, recycling, upcycling, before and afters (of rooms, furniture, whatever) Wednesday Link Party #183

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #183. Well as of right now all public schools here in MN have been closed along with just about everything else yesterday by 5pm. How are you guys all doing? As most of you know my Mom is currently going through chemotherapy treatments which puts her in the most vulnerable group. To say I’m a bit concerned for her is a major understatement. She is practicing hard social distancing… which, to be fair, isn’t that different than regular life here in northern MN. For people like my mom though I am doing what I can to follow the CDC guidelines and literally not going anywhere I don’t have to. I hope you all are safe and getting through this ok.

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #182. Well, its official, we’re seeing a VERY early spring. We hit nearly fifty degrees this weekend, it was crazy and it felt SO GOOD! Suddenly I’m trying to switch gears from my winter to do list to my summer to do list… Which means I need to MAKE my summer to do list lol no complaints though, we certainly deserve a long summer and early spring after the last two years!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #181. It seems to be officially spring time basically here in northern MN… pretty much unprecedented! But if there was ever a people that deserved an early spring I think all of us midwesterners can agree that after the last two VERY short summers, we deserve this! Hope you’re all seeing some sunshine and melting like we are! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #180. Well, I’m not sure what we did to deserve it but we seem to be seeing an early spring here in Minnesota *crosses fingers* let’s hope I didn’t just jinx the midwest! This last weekend it hit 42 on Saturday! I don’t remember an end of February with weather this nice ever in my life. It feels amazing! Hope your winter/spring is going well. Now, on to the Party!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #179. Well we saw some -20s here for a couple of days and some wind chills down into the negative 40s. That was brisk! Everyone weathered it fine though and so far *crosses fingers* it really looks like that is the last of our cold spells and spring is seriously on the way. I don’t think I’ve ever said that in February before! My birthday is on the 24th and I know I have NEVER seen a forecast of 30s for my birthday EVER OMG we’re all so excited! Now, on to the Party!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #178. Lodi and I took this last weekend to go on a mini “vacation” for both of our birthday parties. The view was still of the frozen tundra that is Minnesota right now but the hot tub and the wine certainly helped us both feel like it was a vacation! We had a lovely time and both regretted having to leave our little getaway. But the break certainly helped get my own butt back in gear and back to work. Winter still going on by this time of the year can be such a downer! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #177. Well it sure feels good to put January behind us finally. I swear every year January stretches out even longer somehow. We had a bit of a heat wave here that felt absolutely amazing and even took out some of the insane amount of snow that we have already this winter. Crossing all of our fingers that maybe, just maybe, the worst of the cold snaps are behind us and spring is on its way! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party #176. We’ve had ourselves a lovely “heat wave” throughout north country these past few days and into our forecast. 30s feel like HEAVEN this time of the year and it really has been such a relief. Crossing our fingers maybe we’ll see a mild winter from here on out after seeing negatives temps in November! Hope you all are having a great winter! Now, on to the Party!

I have officially spent half of a month with absolutely no idea what day it is, certain that I’m forgetting something and feeling like I’m getting behind somehow. Happy New Year!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. I saw this posted on Facebook over Christmas and wanted to share it with you guys: “I hope you find some time this week to get really, really quiet. To curl up in a big cozy chair and watch a movie you’ve seen a million times before. To hug the people you love. To wrap up in a warm blanket and read a good book. To drink hot cocoa from a Christmas mug. To stand outside in the crisp night air and marvel at the stars. I hope you find time this week to sit silently in front of your life and contemplate how magical it really is, before we turn the page and greet a New Year.” Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well we are officially wintry now with about a foot of snow on the ground and a high today of -5 ugh. To be fair it is mid December and I do live in northern MN so I guess I can’t really complain about our inevitable winter weather. Lodi has been hinting at taking us somewhere warm in February and that’s sounding better and better by the minute. We put up our first tree together this last weekend and though I am not really a very festive person it was a special moment and who doesn’t love Xmas lights? Now, on to the Party!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. I do hope that you all partied and ate far too much and allowed yourself to forget about calorie intake for at least one day. I myself ate WAY too much over two Thanksgivings. Lodi and I were literally wattling home to hit the couch and unbutton our pants and remove our belts. I have been on a “diet” for almost a year now. I have lost nearly 25 pounds. I’m pretty sure I ate as much food on the first Thanksgiving as I would normally eat spread out over several days. I also have VERY delicate stomach issues that I ignored and totally regretted later. Still though… there was pie and it was REALLY good pie. Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. I feel like Thanksgiving being so late this year made November come and go in like two or three days lol. I panicked last week when I heard on the radio Xmas was less than 4 weeks from Thanksgiving. OMG I need to get my Xmas shopping done good grief! I usually wait until after Thanksgiving but that feels too close for me even buying everything on Amazon Prime. Obviously deadlines stress me out lol. How about you guys? Anyone started Xmas shopping yet? Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Fortunately for us that awful cold snap left and was followed by some really not bad highs in the 30s and 40s! I’ll take it. It felt great after seeing negatives temps this early in the year. I took the weather as a sign to fill my horses’ stock tank and do a few more chores outside that are particularly more crappy to do in cold weather. Lovely for us most of the forecast looks average in the 20s and 30s, YAY!! Crossing my fingers we won’t be seeing negative temps again for a while! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

I got up to a temp of -3 Monday morning… Like SERIOUSLY?! Its not even Thanksgiving yet. Fortunately it does look like we’ll be returning to more “normal” temps here pretty soon. We really need to get some snow if we’re gonna see this kind of cold though! Time to go pick myself up some apple cider and settle into some blankets on my couch for sure. Now, on to the Party!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well I woke up to a white world this morning though we still have enough heat in the ground that I don’t think its gonna totally stick *crosses fingers* I hope you all had a great Halloween! I spent it staying in lol but it still remains one of my favorite holidays of the year! So, with November here, I guess I have some serious food goodness on my mind, ALL of my features this week are some truly incredible looking recipes. Now, on to the Party!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well somehow the stars aligned and we really did get one last nice day of fall. It was the only day we needed as it was also the LAST day we could go to the pumpkin party until next year! I hadn’t gone in ages but its always just been a little favorite thing of mine. A local farm right by me puts it on every year complete with wagon rides, corn mazes and apple cider. Its just a great time to hang out outside and enjoy some of our last fall sunshine so I’m so glad the weather cooperated! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well we did see some snow this weekend but only a few hours from me they got over 2 feet in North Dakota! As for us we only saw a couple of inches that are already long gone so *crosses fingers* its looking like we’re gonna get some more fall weather before winter settles in!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. I keep seeing this post on Facebook that I think is hilarious: “This time of the year my family and I play a fun game of how long can we freeze before we finally turn the heat on!” I wish I could share it but us Minnesotans have had our heat on for weeks now lol. We had our first major freeze awhile ago and its been dipping down into the 40s for a couple weeks. We also have our first major chance of snow this weekend. Fortunately though, its looking like we’re not plowing into winter quite yet and still have some decent fall days on the way! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Fortunately for us Minnesotans we did not see the snow that just hammered Montana. We did see the cold though over the last couple of days. My garden is officially totally and completely done and I turned my heat on in the house. My horses are looking fuzzier by the day and I am not enjoying the fire of my little pellet stove. A couple more outdoor chores and then I’ll be moving totally inside the house with my focus and project list. I am looking forward to it as is always the truth this time of the year!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well I finally hit my wall: OMG I am so sick of making pickles lol! I know I need to get back out to my garden and harvest the last of my cucumbers and everything before the weather really turns but after making 44 quarts of pickles and dilly beans over this summer I am so ready to be done. Totally learned a ton about my garden and me this year and what I can’t wait to do next year. I’m definitely going to plant more variety (I’ve eaten SO MANY beats this year) and less cucumbers!

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Amazingly we got some gorgeous HOT weather this week and everyone in my neck of the woods is literally rejoicing. It was looking pretty grim last week when our forecast was high 50s and raining. So, this week, after my day job, I’m taking full advantage and tackling the last of my outdoor work before I lose the weather again! Also I was so totally excited to be featured as one of the best DIY blogs at the DIY Center! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. OMG pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! To be fair fall doesn’t technically start for a couple more weeks lol but it seems everyone is in the mood for it. Our own summer here in northern MN was tragically short but no less busy then all the others behind us. As usual, I am kinda weary and ready for fall, I still have a couple of things to finish on my list before the snow flies but I am looking forward for things to quiet down a little. I’m also looking forward to not having anymore pickles to make lol! Read the rest of the post »

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well, like every three day weekend I crawl my butt back to work on Tuesday and spend the majority of the day wondering what day it is. I actually took off Thursday and Friday of last week too so after those five days I’m totally discombobulated! It was great to take some real time off though and just play hooky with no real plans. Hope you all had a great holiday weekend now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

This link party is all about homemade, homemaking, DIY, recycling, upcycling, before and afters (of rooms, furniture, whatever), build projects, vintage.

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. For those of you that follow either my Instagram or Facebook page you may know I finally tackled ripping the stucco off my house last weekend. I am thrilled to report I actually got it done! Of course it was not without blood, sweat, tears and several blisters but finally getting the flashing and house wrap up was such a wonderful moment. Still a long way to go before I’ll have anything complete enough to post about it here but, regardless, I am so relieved to get this far! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #153)

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. I was so excited for this last weekend, I haven’t had a TON of time to really work on my house and with the weather already turning I took this last Monday off so I could have three days to really get some things done before winter. And then Saturday morning rolled around and I had a bonfire in my throat, I couldn’t swallow, I hurt everywhere and all I wanted to do was cry but it hurt too much to cry. It hit me so hard and so fast it was just crazy! My high tempt that afternoon hit 102.9. My best friend was seconds from throwing me in a cold shower or rushing me to the ER.

To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #152)

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. This last weekend I made another six quarts of refrigerator dill pickles and four quarts of a refrigerator bread and butter recipe that I’ve never tried before! I’m very excited to see how they turn out. Besides that I’ve officially procrastinated on every single thing I could possibly do outside besides ripping the stucco off the house lol. (Is it really procrastinating as long as you’re getting other stuff done?) So now I have no choice but to get that done too… It is so not a job I’m looking forward to. Now, on to the Party!

To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #151)

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Finally this weekend I didn’t have to leave the house! Summer weekends are always so crazy I’m to the point now where I have to schedule weekends in where I can just STAY HOME no matter what lol. My mom came over and we picked cucumbers and made ten quarts of refrigerator pickles and, of course, totally stuffed ourselves on fresh cucumbers while we were at it. My garden has just begun really producing for me, its just amazing to have fresh vegetables every day for dinner. I also finally added two beams and four posts to underneath my deck, I also cemented them in. Its been on my to do list since this spring when I noticed a little bit of sag and bounce that was driving me crazy! Even with all the activities I could be doing, honestly, just being home has really become my very favorite thing. I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer, on to the Party!

To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #150)

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. Well, its basically August and my garden has started producing cucumbers like crazy. I purchased all my canning supplies and am ready to go. I haven’t yet worked up the courage to can “for real” but my refrigerator pickles from a couple years ago lasted until I ate the last jar nearly a year later. So that’s the plan this year, lots of refrigerator pickles and green beans too. My pepper plants have basically done nothing… not sure what happened there. It may have been the weather though because I’ve heard I’m not the only one whose pepper plants stayed babies lol On to the Party! Read the rest of the post »

To Grandma’s House we go! (Wednesday Link Party #149)

Welcome to the To Grandma’s House We Go link party. So I’ve had three bird houses, four bat houses and two martin houses stashed in my garage for the past few years. Before they were in my garage they were in my aunt’s garage for over a decade. My Grandparents’ made them many many many years ago and they’ve been on my summer to do list since forever. This last weekend I finally got them all put out! I even dug in and cemented posts out in the horse pasture for the martin houses. The three bird houses fit perfect on top of my privacy fence posts and the horse shed gave me a great southern facing place for all four of the bat houses. Phew! It feels great to get that done! Now, on to the Party! Read the rest of the post »
