Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot 10.27.2023

Welcome to another great weekend, and what better way to enjoy it in full is to visit Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot! What makes this link-up special is that we encourage you to link up your current posts and great ideas, but also the great stuff in your archives! 

Wait, did you say, older posts are welcome too? Yep, lets give those older (and STILL great!) posts some recognition and respect. Because let's be honest, last month's or even last year's creative work is still great work, simply bring it out and share it here!

Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot is currently shared over three blogs, here at Scratch Made Food! & DIY Homemade Household along with Marsha in the Middle and Boondock Ramblings. We are looking for additional Co-Hosts to share in the fun! If you also think this would be fun, and a good fit, drop an email and someone will get back with you!

My week in a quick lookback, and recap...

After finally getting our Tiny House outfitted with furniture that was comfortable for us to not only sit in but it actually fit the available space, it is time to get back to the business of  living fully. Which for me means scratch food from my own kitchen. This week, I have a food pantry to to outfit. There is whole wheat flour to mill and granola to make, among other things. This last year with all the travel for volunteering and then time away while our house was repaired, taught me one thing. While I love to travel and try new restaurants, it turns out, I really do feel better when we eat at home...

What's up next, on our property? Because are you ever really done?...

We had a short cold snap here in East Texas and I actually had to put a blanket on the bed for a couple of nights! But we are back to the usual hot weather even at the end of October, with a burn ban in place. What we need to do on the property is burn off the debris wood pile. I also hope to get a couple of flower beds established so we can transplant a couple of roses. But before that happens we must finish the rain/hail cover going up over the little house, because while it is still hot, rain (and then hail) is on it's way. Oh and by the way, I will be glad when mosquito season ends!

If you would like to know why we are building a tiny house homesite here in East Texas, you can read about it here...

Our Food in Costa Rica: 2023 Fall Break. @chezmireille  I am amazed at how much food while traveling is a lot like "home". But it is always interesting to see how the meal are put together as well as the different things grown and served for that area or region. 

Fall in New England @slicesof life When I see this kind of beauty, I know I must get myself to the East Coast and take a look around!
