Kathryn’s Blog: Pick a Peck’s

It’s that time of early fall to get your hands on the pumpkins, ghords, corn, sunflowers, and caramel apples. Yes, you can get a caramel apple at the grocery store, but you can not even compare it to the huge, granny smith doused with caramel and conveniently stabbed with a

Kathryn’s Blog: Joe Update

It’s about time for a ‘Joe the Turtle’ update. Yes, I am very pleased and happy to report that at least Joe’s life has not changed one bit because of Covid. He is in excellent health. He sun baths every day. He does his yoga moves. He sat on my foot and

Kathryn’s Blog: Flash Back Drive-In Theater

With the resurgence of going to the movies by the car load, it was brought to my mind just how much fun drive in theaters are! I was a teenager then and it was a great date night. I will never forget Artie coming to pick me up, a bottle

Kathryn’s Blog: Flower Box Masterpieces

How is it that Summer time flies by so fast? That Wisconsin expression, “knee high by the Fourth of July” is true. The corn stocks are rocketing out of the ground. When I planted these flower colors I was thinking of the Norwegian Flag because I live above Nordic Nook,

Kathryn’s Blog: A Taste of Home

I grew up in New Jersey and most of my life was structured a great deal around the awesome diners that Jersey is famous for. Celebrating birthdays, First Holy Communion, graduations, Easter Sunday, funeral breakfasts, wedding anniversaries… then as a teenager, middle of the night pig-outs after concerts or dancing

Kathryn’s Blog: Mardi Gras

It’s that time of the year, before the Lenten fasting begins! ‘Fat Tuesday’ is the one day of hoopla before ‘serious reflection’ of Lent. The marvelous colors, food, and party time feeling is much needed in this last stretch of winter. My friends, Kim and Scott Smith, owners of the
