Happy Thanksgiving week to you and yours from Tumbleweed Tidings. We are hosting a small group of family members this year and the shopping is done, the house is clean, and I suddenly find myself with time to write a short blog about some changes we recently made...
Late to the Party…

Late to the Party…

It seems like most of my life, I have been a little late to the party. I was definitely slow to mature physically, had braces until the end of my sophomore year of high school, and am just now finishing the last year of my college degree at Washington State University...

Now that I have your attention, I have something big to share with all of you! After using my iPhone 5 for almost 6 years (which is a lifetime in technology terms), my husband and I got new iPhone 11’s last Friday. I can see that you’re now asking...

The Domino Effect…

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match…

Once upon a time, I was obsessing about all of the lovely topiaries that were showing up everywhere in the home décor world.  Over the years, I have had various versions of real topiaries, made from lavender, rosemary, and other greenery.  They look cute for about 15...

What’s Cooking? Pesto…

Last weekend I made pesto, and let me tell you, it made our kitchen smell AMAZING! My love affair with pesto started a few years ago when I had basil growing like a weed in our garden. What to do with all of that basil? Pesto, of course. I followed a recipe from the...

Before I jump into the blog post, I wanted to explain my limited blogging this summer. As my husband and I age, we have made a conscious commitment to being “lifetime learners.”  He accomplishes this by continuing to consult in the nuclear...

What’s Cooking? Greek Orzo Salad…

Summer is here and my herb garden is in full swing. Off of our covered patio, there are steps leading into the yard and pool, and flanking the steps are two built-in planters. Over the years I have used these planters for flowers, succulents, and most recently my herb...
