Computer monitor - Comfy cat spot!

I think cats are the best when it comes to repurposing things. This is my cat "Crazy Cat" using my computer monitor for her comfy spot. She does make it difficult to see the screen with her paws and tail in the way.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

I've made peanut butter eggs once before, but had lost the recipe. I found this recipe at

It makes 13 large size peanut butter eggs. I had no idea it would make so many as the recipe did not let you know the amount. I guess I'll be giving pb eggs away to everyone I know.
Here is a finished egg, the inside turned out very light and creamy. I coated them with dark chocolate.

Pieces of the Past

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to spend the summer along a river in Colorado. We stayed in our RV while cleaning out and fixing up an old cabin. The cabin was built in the early 1900s along an early mountain train route. The property next door just had the remaining foundation, as the cabin had burned down many years ago. While poking around the burnt remains I found broken pieces of old glass, china and pottery. I used these found pieces to make this mosaic. Using the front of a discarded kitchen cabinet drawer where the center is recessed, I spread mastic to about ¾ “thick. Then I placed my broken pieces onto the mastic pressing them in gently. Just let dry and no need to worry about grouting it.
