Thanksgiving in Michigan

My whole family gathered at Harry's and my home in rural Southwest Michigan to share the Thanksgiving holiday together. It was the best Thanksgiving Harry and I have spent in many years.  Here is a link to my Pure Michigan blog and photos of our visit.  I hope you enjoy!

Saving the Season

Take a peak at all the Michigan produce I was able to preserve and can this past summer and fall ;)

Our Last Day In Michigan

A sad day but also a good time for introspection...

My New Life in Michigan

Hi there...long talk, eh :)  Yes, it's been well over a year since I've posted on this blog and I'm sort of embarrassed to be posting now.  But I hope you all will forgive me.  If any of you are still out there, watching me...kind of...sort of:  Cat, Tammy, Beth, Donna, Toni, Mark, Kelsey, Rachel, et al...Although I haven't posted any comments, I have followed y'all's blogs pretty closely this past year+.  Such good stuff :)

I've finally gotten around to creating a blog about my new life in Michigan.  I can't continue with Diane's Texas Garden because Diane's Texas garden doesn't exist anymore :/  Harry and I now live in Michigan 6-8 months out of the year.  We've moved out of the big house in the South Texas hill country and divide our time between our Michigan home and a smaller, but very lovely home, in San Antonio.

We have made the shift from South Texas to Michigan quite well.  Michigan is beautiful and we love the life we have created up North.

If you are interested in following my new life "in the Mitten", then please check out my new blog My Pure Michigan Life

I really do hope to hear from you.

Me and Gretchen & pups are still a *huge* part of my life!

Heading North!

We are loaded up and ready to go!  It's about 3:43 AM and we will be hitting the road shortly.  The movers left yesterday with the rest of our stuff.  I feel like the Beverly Hillbillies...towing a Beemer and hauling 3 dogs, 40 pounds of onions, a case of wine, 21 pair of shoes, an iMac...

More later when we get to Michigan! :)

My Onion Harvest!

I didn't plant anything in my spring garden this year except three sets of Texas 1015 sweet onions.  Well I harvested them over the weekend and what a harvest!  For having done nothing but plant them and water them, here's what I got!

And I intend to bring all of them to Michigan with me.  I sure hope my family up north likes onions :)
