Abstract Easter Sugar Cookies Easter always seems to be the kick-off to creating new designs of sugar cookies. This year however, I didn’t have much time think about Easter sugar cookies designs due to Fur Ball, a charity event that I help organize, was just a week apart. So I needed a quick but fun sugar cookie design that didn’t have too many details yet was still cute and festive. Here is the recipe for the sugar cookies: Perfect Sugar Cookie
Let the Demo Begin! I decided to save a “little” money and demo the floors myself. I pulled out every staple from the linoleum! They say you can hammer them into the sub floor, but I wanted a solid smooth base. Linoleum Floors – no so easy to remove! I didn’t think that the old linoleum floors were going to give me such trouble. I definitely need a breaker bar in some areas. Boy were my hands sore! Wow! What a difference a 10 days makes. We love the new look of the “wood” tiles. The heating system is simply a wonderful thing. It makes the tiles and the room warm. Perfect for cold Colorado winter days!
Motorcycle Vacations Our newest addition to the family a 2017 Ultra Limited Harley Davidson has conjured new and longer rides as time goes on. We have decided to alter every other year as a designated motorcycle vacation. I’ve agreed to this just as long as we take a fight out of the country to our following years vacation! Packing – Tight Quarters So, with Pawtoberfest and my own Oktoberfest party under my belt I have ONE day to pack for our Harley Davidson motorcycle trip to Minnesota. As you can see in the picture below, I don’t have much room for Everything I’d like to take with me on trips. One side saddle bag compartment each is all each person gets if you are not pulling a trailer behind you. However, this is our third moto trip so I’ve gotten used to wearing the same few outfits for two weeks, I just need a laundry mat and I’m refreshed and good to go. Microphones Ready The morning came too early. However, we were eager to get on the road and try out our new microphones in our helmets. Now we can talk to each other without having to yell with our faces turned up to the wind. After a few minutes of testing our microphones we were out on the open road by 5am — Minnesota bound! See our ride here! Our first stop will be a short night in Chamberlin, South Dakota. Rain, Rain Go Away! My First Harley… read more
Broken Sprocket Leads to Garage Remodel Its funny… how a broken metal sprocket leads to a huge project! LOL! I was heading out to buy some more chalk paint and run some errands. As I was heading into the garage I pushed the button for the garage door to open and I hear a loud cranking noice I hadn’t heard before. As I took one step into the garage, there was a loud crunch and snap noice, the drive change sprocket had broken and came hurdling at my head! Turns out this is just what the doctor ordered. A perfect excuse for my husband to order a new garage door opener and begin his Harley Davidson garage remodel! The New Garage Door – Wireless I was right, the garage door is now considered “dead” to my husband. It was the perfect storm to buy a side mount garage motor he has been wanting for a few years now. The installation of the new Lift Master 8500W motor gave us much more space above the garage and it’s so quiet, too! The coolest thing about the new garage door opener is that you can open and close the garage from anywhere you have an Internet connection! Better Garage Organization Turns Into Cabinet Set From COSTCO Now that the wireless garage door opener is installed, we were also thinking about better storage and other places in the garage that needed improvements. Bruce began contemplating cabinets, a work bench, area for the bikes,… read more
