Good Cheer




Our house looks festive inside and out. The gifts have been wrapped and the cookies have been baked. I have four days off in a row this week and I'm so looking forward to enjoying some good holiday cheer! We will be relaxing and enjoying good food with friends and family, watching a few Christmas show classics, maybe even go to see a new movie.
Much love and good cheer to all this holiday season!

A New Favorite

This is our new favorite banana bread recipe.
I found it on the Martha Stewart website.
It's quick and easy to make and the addition of sour cream makes it nice and moist. Makes 1 loaf.


    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to incorporate.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.

Tie Dye Fun



My husband mixed up some dye, twisted some white cotton shirts into spiral patterns and made a new batch of tie dye shirts and hoodies yesterday.
This hoodie sweatshirt and henley shirt, and more, are available in the GalacticAvatar tie dye shop on Etsy.

A Walk in the Park





The change of seasons is so evident today as the sun is shining one minute and puffy gray clouds blowing in the next. The trees are still holding onto their leaves, but that won't last for long. The days are getting shorter and cooler with each passing week.
I'm not a fan of cold weather and snow, so I'm enjoying each sunny fall day as much as possible.
