An Art Exhibit and “Marcia’s Second Pink Home”

“Home is where the heart is”

Pliny the Elder

Hello, sweet friend…

How are you? I hope you had a great week.

Earlier this week I attended an Art Exhibit Opening at Southern Coos Hospital located in Bandon, Oregon on the Oregon coast.

I’m always amazed with the local talent

The theme of the exhibit was called “Home”

All the artwork displayed some form of home life.

Home Delivery

I was so excited to attend this exhibit…

since I find an enormous comfort in the home

The artists work displayed different kinds of structures representing home…

Feral Cat Home

Home Alone

There were barns…nests…farm houses…small cafés…

The Old Home

As I strolled through the exhibit sipping punch and munching on small delectable cookies

I was pleasantly surprised to see…

that one of the artists had painted

our home…

“Oh my it’s our home!”

There it hung so beautifully on the wall… it was entitled “Marcia’s Second Pink Home”

I excitedly called Joe to let him know!

(of course) To be continued…


An Easy Brunch

veggie sausage, cheese, small red potatoes & egg

It’s nice to have a go to recipe for brunch. Nothing fancy. Here is the recipe I like to prepare during the week & sometimes on the weekend.

The number of eggs needed will depend on how many people you will be serving. For this particular meal I used eight eggs, 2 cups of shredded dairy free cheese, 4 veggie sausages, and 6 small potatoes sliced and cooked.

Once the prep work is done blend ingredients together and cook in a pan until the mixture is solid. Spray a small casserole dish and place egg mixture inside. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. (I sprinkled extra cheese on top)🥰

Semi-homemade scones

I often experiment when baking…

Recently I purchased a box of scone mix and tweaked it just a little.

In place of the water I added 1 can of mandarin oranges (with the syrup)

mixed it up…

then followed the remaining directions as given.

I wasn’t sure about how it would taste…

however my taste tester Joe gave it a 10.😉

    Looking at the breakfast you prepared I need to share……My aunt and uncle owned a small truck stop type of restaurant when I was a kid, for a number of years. Here was my 1st job, other than babysitting! I began dishwashing and then waitressing. The girlies I worked for and I would ask the cook to make us a MESS for breakfast sometimes….which is what your breakfast looks like! Ours would consist of either ham, bacon, or sausage, onions and green peppers, eggs, potatoes and cheese….YUM. So now remember, to ask Joe….would you like a mess today??? Hahaha!!!!!

      Hi Donna!
      I love your story… I’m not usually big on messes… however this mess is definitely an exception.☕️

    • Marcia says:

      Hi Donna,
      I’m thinking that this MESS is the first I’ve really enjoyed… since normally I’m not the messy sort.
      Btw… Love your story!

      Hi Pat,
      Yes it was a super fun day! The exhibit will be there for 3 months so I have plenty of time to decide where I will hang it.
