What Tha Yurt?

Yurt: A yurt is a portable, bent wood-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by Turick nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel (tüýnük) usually steam bent supported by roof ribs which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall (again steam bent).~thank you Wikipedia.

I have decided that I want a Yurt. Forget camping with a tent. Well, I've never actually been camping in a tent other than the back yard of my grandparents farm. But that was totally camping, with a tent and everything and coyotes howling in the distance. But camping in a tent? You've got to be kidding after I have discovered the Yurt. Not only is the name incredibly awesome to vocalize but, most importantly, these things are freaking awesome! Talk about camping in luxury, which is my style of camping. Some people actually have more stable Yurts as their homes or even vacation homes but others have portable Yurts for camping or even greenhouses in their backyards! Watch out hubs, we are going to end up with a Yurt for every purpose! 

First of all you need a Yurt frame such as these examples. I am fascinated. The hubs just inherited some tools from my late uncle. I'm thinking its prime time to put him to work with those tools so he can make a nice little frame for me. He can take care of the exterior and just leave the interior to me. 

I've found the more permanent vacation home types have the nice wood floor. The Yurts for camping don't but I can totally live with that.

Interested in purchasing a Yurt? Yep same here. I've done some research for you. They are dang expensive so just keep that tucked away in your mind. Here are a couple neat Yurt sellers:

Camping in a Yurt? Why I think I will if I do say so myself!


It's Pumpkin Time!

I went to Central Market after work on Friday to pick up a dinner for two for the hubs and me. I felt like I was walking into a pumpkin wonderland. I was almost knocked over with fall decorating ideas. Pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Then, Fall set in. Is it really Fall? I managed to survive suffering thorough 100 plus degrees for the 33rd year in my life? The torture, why do I do it? I do love my town but the heat can take a hike. But, Fall is finally here. Ah, my favorite time of year. Well, any time of year other than Summer is my favorite in Texas but Fall is numero uno. This time of year means pumpkin everything, including waffles with a side of leftover turkey sausage from yesterday. Hello pumpkin waffles...yes please.

Yummy Lunch Wonderful Weather

Finally! Texas has cooled off! I am doing my happy dance now. Plus, not only has it cooled off it has been rainy as well. Cool rainy weather...I couldn't ask for more! This kind of weather makes me motivated to be a bit more the craft room and the kitchen! So, I perused my new issue of cooking light and found a great recipe for Italian sausage hoagies. It was delish and plenty was left over for dinner so I didn't have to cook twice in one day. I also spray painted my front porch furniture. I love it so far. I have a few more things to do before I post pictures. Living the good life today folks.
