Tuesday Tidbits #150 Settled In

Home Again in Arizona!

Just a little touch of fall in the family room. My sister gave me the pumpkin! 🧡

We finally feel settled back here in AZ. It took me a little longer then usual… perhaps it’s a sign of old age?!

The weather has been superb! The temperatures are wonderful!

A sunset in our backyard.

We have been enjoying the cool mornings and evenings on the patio.

Coffee outside on the back patio starts the day off nicely.

During the evenings …an ambiance surrounds us with outdoor lighting.

The agave silhouette !

A peek at the She Shed from the patio.
A scarecrow swinging on my she shed wreath! Of course it’s barbed wired… cause we live in the Wild, Wild West!

Texas Time!

When we left our LakeHouse we made a stop in Texas to visit family.

And when we visit… I always enjoy the chickens!

They love sour cream! Who knew?

And with chickens… you know I am going to have fresh fried eggs!

There’s nothing better! Well maybe homemade bread made by my sister in law… just waiting to be toasted. Mmmm! 🧡

Feature Creatures

And when in Texas we always enjoy the deer in the pasture! This time we Ran with the Deer! Well, we didn’t actually run but we were in a side by side… it was fun! Therefore this weeks Feature Creatures are in the video! It was almost dark out so the quality is not the greatest. I sure hope you can watch! I turned off the sound so you don’t hear me laughing!


We enjoyed an evening outside with John Fogerty at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. He was fantastic! He sang all the great songs from Credence Clearwater Revival.

Great concert!

Book Club

I am now in a Book Club. Our first book was…

I enjoyed it very much! We had a great discussion and I highly recommend it!

An Easy Dinner For You

I made Turkey Stuffing Roll Ups for the first time. They are so delicious and so easy! Plus it’s a delicious meal you could share with company. My sister gave me her version of making this meal.

*Get good quality deli Turkey sliced thicker then usual.

*Make Stove Top Stuffing. I always add some fresh parsley and sautéed diced celery to it.

*Butter a baking dish… I used a 13×9 size.

*Take one Turkey slice then add a scoop of stuffing on it and roll it up. I got about 8 roll ups to one box of stuffing.

*Then pour Turkey gravy over it all. I used 2 jars of gravy.

*Bake at 375 until it’s hot and bubbly. I’ll make this again for sure! I hope you give it a try.

Thanks Again!

I sure do appreciate you stopping by. It’s always so good to hear from you. Enjoy these last few days of October and have a Happy Halloween!

  1. I so enjoy recapping your excursions and fun times. One can readily see you and your sweet man certainly enjoy life to its fullest. You are a “dear” to share your “deer” video. Please take care, continue to be happy and stay safe.love you.

  2. Welcome home! Glad you’re all settled in and things are looking festive as always. I’m really partial to the barbed wire wreath. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe because I’m definitely going to try it. When you’re gone all summer, does someone take care of your plants and landscaping because everything always looks great?

    1. Thank you for the love Judy! We do have a house sitter. But… most of it is draught tolerant with some water irrigation to it.
      The Turkey roll ups are amazing! Hope you try them!
      Enjoy your Tuesday!

      1. They are delicious! You definitely can use your own stuffing and gravy.
        Thanks for the love!
        Enjoy the rest of your October!

  3. I’m glad you are settled in. Even when you leave things picture perfect in the spring, there is lots to do when you return in the fall. When the video stops, you can clearly see the baby—so cute! I hope you enjoy your book club. Mine has expanded my reading horizons, and I am thankful for that.

    1. We all said that… I most likely would not have chosen this book on my own. In fact, one of the authors of this book didn’t think she even wanted to write this book until she met the other author. So now the horizons have opened up!
      Thank you for the visit and enjoy this October Day!

  4. Good morning, Nancy. I am happy for you that you are settled back in to your AZ home. I always enjoy seeing your patio and she shed…barbed wire wreath 😀. I know being able to stop over in TX to visit with family was wonderful. I watched the video, now that was a herd of deer. They are always in our back pasture, but not that many. I think I will try the turkey rolls for an after Thanksgiving meal using my dressing as we call it. This is a wonderful Tuesday Tidbits, 150 WOW!

    Wishing you a lovely day my friend!

    1. Thank you Pam! The deer love him! He feeds them some corn every evening and as soon as he fires up the side by side they come out of the woodwork!
      150… can you believe it? Almost a 3 year anniversary of Tuesday Tidbits!
      Thanks for the love and I see you have a post as well today… I have to see what you are up too.
      Enjoy this October Day! 🤗

  5. I enjoyed seeing all the deer in your video! What a fun experience. I joined a book club in the spring – it’s so much fun and I am reading books I never would have thought of reading. So far there was only one I didn’t like! Thanks for the book recommendation.

    1. Same here! I most likely would not have chosen this book but I sure did enjoy it.
      The deer are so fun in Texas. They love him!
      Happy Tuesday Beth!

  6. You are settled. I love the owl mug. That’s quite a heard of dear. Life looks wonderful. BTW I can’t comment on you site. WP is so weird.

    1. Well I got your comment but WP does have its share of troubles as of late. I have had some problems with other sites.
      The deer were so much fun!
      Enjoy your Tuesday Tim!

      1. There are a handfull of sites that I cannot comment on the site. I can only comment through the reader. It’s weird.

      2. I hear ya. I have the same problem. thank you for being determined. I sometimes have to log back in. It’s weird!

  7. Glad to learn that you’re back and settled in. I think you must be a very organized person because your annual transitions appear to be so seamless. If they’re not, don’t tell! At any rate, I enjoyed the photos and the deer. That book is on my list, but it will probably take me a year to get to it.

    1. Loving both places makes it help with the transition!
      This book is very good and I enjoyed it very much. In fact so did the others in the club. We also had a great discussion over it.
      Thanks so much for the visit and enjoy your Tuesday!

  8. Welcome back home, Nancy. I know what you mean about it taking some time to get resettled. I’ve been dealing with the same issue. The recipe looks delicious. I’ll have to add that to my repertoire!

    1. The Turkey rolls are fabulous! We can’t get over how easy and how delicious they were.
      Thanks for always stopping over for a visit. I sure do appreciate it.
      Enjoy your Tuesday my friend!

  9. I’m glad you’re all settled back in Arizona for the winter Nancy! Sounds like you had much fun on your trip back too…Your yard looks lovely lit up at night, and you made Thanksgiving in a casserole with your turkey stuffing rolls and gravy!

    1. I’m telling you… these Turkey Rolls are fabulous! Easy and delicious!
      We are glad to be back and now on to many desert adventures!
      Happy Tuesday Jenna!

  10. Happy Tuesday, Nancy! I always love seeing your beautiful outdoor area. It looks like you had a wonderful time in Texas. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It looks delicious! Enjoy your week, sweet friend!

    1. So good to hear from you Shannon! I hope you try the Turkey Stuffing Rolls… they are delicious!
      Thanks so much for the visit!

    1. We are Blessed to live in two beautiful and wonderful places! Thank you for enjoying both.
      And the Turkey rolls can be made with your own stuffing and gravy. Which I will do next time. I took shortcuts this time and it was still delicious.
      Thank you so much for stopping by Karen! Have a beautiful rest of October.

  11. Your yard is absolutely beautiful! I can’t believe you posted the turkey roll ups! I had forgotten all about them. I have never made them but had them at a family graduation picnic. I remember how delicious they were back then. Thank you for posting the recipe.

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
