Whimsical whatnot...

Had mentioned a while back that I was creating a little decorative birdhouse with a branch that had paper mache' birds on it. Well, I finally got it completed today.

I think it turned out really cute. I listed it in my etsy shop. It was actually a bit time consuming to do, but it turned out nicely. has been very hot here today.
And nope..I didn't work in the yard with the mulch at all. We acquired a pallet full of mulch(75 big bags full) to redo our flower beds, but it was just too hot today to tackle that.
I will start tackling that chore in the evening times .
All in all today has been a really nice day.
Hubby took the day off and has been catching up with orders on his sign business work.
He had an order for 10 banners to do. So the printer that does full color work has been busy humming away in the office area of the house today.
I had to make a run to the store today..for milk and bread and a few other necessities..and while there I snooped around at the pretty notecards and decided to treat myself to a few packs of notecards to get back into my snail mail writings.
I have a pot of chili going on the stove to make chili nachos for dinner tonight.
Nothing fancy at all. Simple and easy.
Here's a really simple recipe I wanted to share with you all.
Banana Nut Bread Pancakes/Waffles
3 cups pancake mix of choice
1 cup fresh sunflower seeds or roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
2 ripe sliced bananas
Mix up batter as you would normally for your pancakes/or as for waffles
Add the sunflowers and gently stir in the banana slices.
Prepare as usual.
Top with real maple syrup.
oooh yummy!
----------- can you tell what I had for breakfast? ..ha
Well, here's wishing you all a lovely evening!
