Warm & Cozy Comforter Set

Today I'm sharing a new Winter Bedding Collection.  We put this on right after the painting was done.  We kept the Christmas quilt on the bed for way to long but knew it was thin and washable should paint happen to find it's way on it.  It didn't though the painters were pretty good about that.

A Beautiful Light Snow!

This was a couple of days ago and was just enough to coat the lawn lightly.  It truly was beautiful and Chuck was off and home for the first time to see the snow fall out here.  He is usually working when it does happen to snow, which isn't too often.  We did enjoy it very much together.  Today I share a few pictures and a video of our view from here.

Bountiful Veggies & Chicken Stir Fry Over Yellow Rice

I love to make a stir-fry, don't you?  The hardest thing is preparing the ingredients and chopping veggies isn't hard at all.  Fresh ingredients make all the difference in the world! I'll tell you something else I love too and that would be Mahatma Yellow Jasmine Saffron Rice! This is a simple yet very delicious recipe.  Join me today for the recipe.

Painting the Master Bedroom and Closet

Earl, Darrell and Wendell 

Earl played baseball for a few well known teams and has been a painter for years like his family.  Darrell tells me he has been a maintenance man with Shaw Air Force Base, worked for The Department of Transportation with schools and also has done vinyl siding and carpentry work. Wendell played football, was a cook/chef in restaurants as a Grill master for 15 years! I told him we should have had him cooking us some steaks up on those grills in the back yard. Heaven knows Darrell lucked up because had I known all of this time he was a carpenter, let's just say he would have been much more busy!
They are talking on the front porch that they painted so beautifully. Today I'm sharing the painting of our master bedroom and my closet.

Who's Digging in the Dirt?


Good morning and how are you?  Fine I hope.  Today my thoughts are on growing something.  The weather here is undoubtedly strange this year.  The temperature predictions for today will be in the 80s!  Actual prediction high 86 degrees!  I think I'll hold off on planting some things because if history can be taken into account we will have a cold snap.  Talking gardening today.

Southern Traditions: Why Did My Grandmas Sweep Their Yards?

Photo left Granddaddy Walter, Aunt Fannie, Grandma Cora and her mother my Great Grandma Maggie. Photo right is of my Grandmother Goldie

Today's post came to mind from seeing a meme on Facebook with an elderly lady sweeping her yard. Yes, sweeping the yard was a common thing back in the day.  I as a child watched my grandmas and Aunt Fannie sweep their yards. I seem to remember them doing this especially hard on Saturdays. Back then chores had to be done and done well to get ready for Sunday.

Storage Solutions for Each Room of the House

Is Spring Cleaning on your mind?  I know it is!  You know we've had lots of home repairs going on here at Hibiscus House and they have made me see how many things I really don't need.  I've been purging for awhile and will post updates shortly.

Today I'd like to welcome Erin Holdgate from Zillow who has put together a few wonderful ideas to keep in mind while you are cleaning and organizing.

Storage Solutions for Each Room of the House
By Erin Holdgate

If your New Year's resolution is to live life more simply, decluttering your home is a great place to start. After you remove all the items you don’t use regularly, however, you may find yourself in need of extra storage — which you can create with a little rearranging.

Below are several examples of where and how to increase the storage capacity of your home.
