A few simple weekend pleasures here at Coral Cottage.

Making homemade granola, recipe from Staci over at Life at Cobble Hill Farm  reading her farm blog and recipes are like taking a trip to the farm.  It makes me happy.  She has a nice recipe blog too.

Recipe Here.

Thank you to Jen at Winter Owls for encouraging me to use creativity to work through the tough stuff.

Thank you to those folks that popped by this week to read the blog.

I hope you all had a weekend full of simple pleasures.

See you later, Bye!

  1. Hooray! So happy you tried the granola!! 🙂 Thank you so much for linking to me and for such kind words. Your photos are amazing! The titmouse series is just beautiful. And you know I love cats, so the cat photos are fantastic. You are very talented both in art and photography!


    1. Staci – I just love your generous comments, thank you. I have had several people contact me wanting to know how to turn that granola into a bar. Do you have a suggestion?

    Being partial to cats, I must first admire the beautiful orange color of That Cat but I also wonder if you could turn that pumpkin spice granola into a homemade granola bar. Not sure how that is done but it would be scrumptious. My sister, who has been through thyroid cancer is continuing to have some issues and have another test done tomorrow. Got two of you on my prayer list now.


    1. I was wondering about making it a granola bar too, ok I really used the term cookie. I’ll have to check into it.
      Keep me on your list, I need all the help. Blessings to your sister.


    2. I replied to this once, but I think my brain hit delete, sigh this is the way things are going these days. Blessings to your sister. xok


      1. says:

        Nope, you didn’t hit delete. So I got two blessings for my sister. Thanks.


  3. I love your beautiful photos, especially the snaps of your lovely cat. My cat also likes a little grassy snack now and again – I think it’s mainly because she can’t hunt anything that doesn’t stay completely still!


    1. Thank you for popping in, I’ve missed reading your lovely blog, I will be back though! My cat TC has only three legs and he isn’t the best hunter, but he still gives it his best, right now he is on mole patrol. Thanks again for stopping in. xok

    Your pictures are wonderful , do you change the setting to capture the detail? Our poor cat ended up at the vet’s recently as she had a piece of grass stuff in her throat! Hope you find using your creativity helpful.

    1. Sarah I actually had to pull that piece of grass out of TC’s mouth (yuck) it was about 10 inches long and and he could not get it back up or down. It was a scary moment for us both.
      I’m shooting all my photos in manual these days. It is a real challenge because my brain isn’t working correctly, and the things I know, I can’t remember. So I have to keep playing with aperture, F, ISO’s etc. My eyesight has gone bad, so when I think I have focus, I don’t. Then I cry and get really upset. I have to quiet everything in my head and heart to loose myself with the camera and then I feel so much better. TRIPOD TRIPOD, I can’t hold the camera any more and carrying it on the tripod is very hard. I told a friend I wish I could put wheels on it so I could push it around! Maybe I’ll invent that. HA! xoxok

    How does a cat turn his tongue sideways? Such talented creatures! I was moving my tongue around and figured out humans probably can’t do it . Just felt like an idiot. ( I probably looked like one!!) Good thing every being in my house is asleep-LOL Peace Out–JC


    1. Silly girl – when you get sticky candy stuck in your teeth then you move your tongue sideways and upside down to remove it – or maybe you just leave it there ’till someone points out you got black on yer teeth! Tonight is the night for my pea brain. I’ll be in touch. xok
