    Easy Homemade Bread Recipe

    Today I am sharing my sandwich bread recipe that I have been making almost every week for a year. This homemade bread recipe is soft, delicious and believe it or not, relatively easy to make! Here is the thing. I have never aspired to be a baker. I actually felt as though I was not “good” at it, and never took the time to try and enjoy it. But, seeing the ingredients for bread come together and produce a loaf of bread is very satisfying. It amazes me how ingredients that start all sticky and gooey can develop a beautiful…

    Rough Cut Lumber Chicken Coop

    Today I am going to share our DIY rough-cut lumber chicken coop. We wanted to build a budget-friendly chicken coop for our new chickens and used rough cut lumber and upcycled supplies. This is a prime example of an “I told you so” situation. I always said we would never have chickens, and here we are years later, saying ‘maybe we should get some chickens’. All I have to say is that priorities and situations change! And of course, we wanted to build a chicken coop in the cheapest way possible. This is when the piles of rough-cut lumber, piles…

    Preparing for First Vegetable Garden

    We are preparing for our first vegetable-raised, container bed garden this year.  Well, technically I had a very small, raised bed garden a few years ago in Rubbermaid bins. But it didn’t work out so well, so I am looking forward to preparing for our first vegetable garden this year. So, this year I am calling this our first vegetable garden. I have been learning all the things about gardening. While I am learning and soaking in all the gardening information, the snow is still coming down here in Upper Michigan in March.  I sort of feel as though it…

    Class C Motorhome Renovation Reveal

    I am sharing the final reveal for our 1998 Class C Motorhome Renovation. An easy, budget friendly motorhome makeover that anyone can accomplish! This Class C Motorhome was our first step into motorhome traveling, and to say we were converted is an understatement! We love the convenience of traveling in a motorhome with a family and because this RV was only 26 feet long, it was the perfect one for me to learn how to drive! When we purchased the Class C Motorhome, we had a few ideas on how to update the RV. But before any renovations were started,…
