aprairiesunrise Reading at our new table/bench. The table part swivels down to become a bench! Picked up this and its twin (which is under a tree in the backyard) at a yard sale a couple weeks ago. Primered and painted last week & brought it in today. It fits perfectly in our tiny dining area! I will be making a cushion and table cloth for it as well. Trying to decide if I should make 1, 2, or 3 cushions for the 6' seat... #diyhome #tuckeysbuyahome #rubyverna 1d

aprairiesunrise Thanks @sugar_stitches for "forcing" me to watch Outlander yesterday, now I have a new book to read! So excited to start! And, yes, I did actually finish Anna and the French Kiss first. ;) 3d
  •   oocha It's a great book!! The series is really well done too!! 3d
  •   fourchicksfarm Eeeeek!!!! Gorgeous! Also, best book ever! 3d
  •   rubydeee I just bought an iTunes card for the same series. I LOVE the show 3d
  •   sugar_stitches That's what friends are for! Finishing up my book now (in between loads of laundry) and hoping to start Outlander tonight. Then you'll have to come back and we'll binge-watch the series. There's only 8 episodes in all. I'll make pavlova again. 3d
  •   nevcowgrl I just finished reading this! I could not put it down. Starting the next book today! 3d
  •   kristieocd This is such a great book series, and loving the tv shows so far!! Book 3 is the ultimate, keep reading!! 3d
  •   bitterwaterlife Great series of books, I read them years ago and still remember every bit of them. Great choice. 3d
  •   badlandsquilts Just got that from the library. .. 3d

aprairiesunrise I bought this wooden planter to grow herbs in my kitchen window, but know pretty much zip about gardening. Do I need to waterproof the planter? And if yes, how? Thanks! #ediblegarden #growyourfood 1w
  •   possumbambi You can't put soil directly into the wood, it will rot. You'll need some kind of tray/liner for the bottom and a pot or pots with drainage holes fir the plants. The 4" plastic ones would work fine. The wooden box is really just decorative. Very pretty! 1w
  •   yarnpirate Plastic liner will work. I use chicken feed bags that I cut to fit 1w
  •   mitenae You'd need to waterproof it. Try using bondcrete. Otherwise as others have suggested, individual pots or an insert. 1w
  •   emfndn Rotten wood & rotten window sill maybe line with plastic (just to be safe) and find an insert like the other ladies have said. Nice thing is, stuff is going on sale! Woot woot! 1w
  •   aprairiesunrise @emfndn Yeah! A rotten window sill would suck! Especially since the previous owner put in new windows right before she sold to us. I got this on sale at Menard's a few weeks ago. I love that store!! 1w
  •   aprairiesunrise Thanks @mycraftycrap @possumbambi @yarnpirate @mitenae! I've toyed with most of those ideas so at least I know I'm on the right track! ;) 1w
  •   aprairiesunrise @oocha I think it's just pine, but I'm not sure! I got it Menard's do you have one up there? Thanks for your help! 1w
  •   oocha No we don't have a menards. Can't wait to see what you grow!! I really want a herb box too 1w

aprairiesunrise Another great toy from the neighbor! Practicing driving in her new fawn hoodie. There's no denying that the weather has turned and #RubyVerna needed winter clothes so we went shopping in Casper yesterday. Got her some great things, like this hoodie and mint Converse!! #Wyomingautumn 2w

aprairiesunrise Our neighbor is so sweet! She brought over a couple toddler toys for Ruby that her grandkids have outgrown, including this slide. When we went over to thank her she invited us in and it turns out she's a quilter!! Hoping to get to sew with her some time. :) #hoorayforawesomeneighbors #toddlerfun #RubyVerna 2w

aprairiesunrise Often times I do have to briefly modify my #30dayshred workout because inevitably Ruby will steal my mat or weights or climb on top of me during abs. But I try to keep moving and get her back on track as quickly as possible. #itsonly20minutescantyoujustsitstill?! ;) #toddlerfun 2w

aprairiesunrise A #latergram #sweatnsew from Thursday which I forgot to post that day. Swim swim swim!! Glad I got my laps in while I could! No workout today, up until 5.30am with a sick Ruby and finally forced Jake to get up with her and got 3 hours of sleep. Been dealing with a pathetically whiney sick toddler since then and even now while she's napping am hovering over her because it's not a restful sleep. Hopefully back in the pool Monday! #aprairiesunrisegetsfit 3w
  •   aprairiesunrise Thursday's workout was a short one. Only a mixed 500. 3w
  •   xjoseyx 500m or 500 laps??? 3w
  •   aprairiesunrise Oh haha! Only 500yds. :P @xjoseyx 3w
  •   bitterwaterlife Hope Ruby recovers soon, hang in there mama 3w
  •   salty2001 Sorry Ruby is not feeling good. Makes it tough on Mom specially when Dad's at work :~( Hope she'sleeping better so you can get some rest. 3w
