This past weekend was utterly beautiful where I live. Spring-i-ness in all it’s glory. Honestly, if I didn’t have errands to do during the week and a family to take care of, I’d probably spend these early spring days just driving around aimlessly. It’s just SO green everywhere. Two weeks ago there were no leaves,… Continue reading Garden of Ideas
National Pay It Forward Day. Again, another one of these obscure days that are actually registered somewhere as a “holiday”. They are a boon to bloggers, I can tell you that. Probably teachers, too. Seems like something they could turn into a lesson pretty easily. If you read this week’s post about Angels in a… Continue reading Today is…
Vacation is now fading to a memory. Isn’t it insane how quickly it can leave and how easily you are thrust back into your routines? Frustrating. I guess that’s why we have photos. And memories. I’ve been working at preserving my thoughts about those Red Rocks and the amazing views all week. I actually had… Continue reading The LBD of Cookies
For the second half of our week’s vacation, we went to Scottsdale, which is further south in Arizona. It could not be further from Sedona in every way. Sedona is Red Rocks, hiking, New Age, all-natural, outdoorsy. Scottsdale is shopping, dining, laying by the pool. Actually, the week was a perfect blend of earthy and… Continue reading Thighs, shmighs
I’ve said it to my kids and you’ve said it to yours. And maybe not even yours, just to any small person with whom you happen to be dining at the moment….”C’mon, just one bite. Try it. You might like it.” And then the total adult clincher, which you hope to seal the deal with….”You… Continue reading C’Mon, Mikey…try it?
Hello! It’s nice to be writing again after a week’s respite. I’m going to start today’s post with something that is entirely, completely and utterly out of my nature….a Bible quote. Right about now my Mom is probably laughing. Here goes… Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing, some people have entertained… Continue reading Angels with a Car
“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.”-Faith Whittlesey Last night, I had the distinct pleasure of witnessing joy. Pure joy in action. We were at an awards ceremony and were under the impression that our daughter would be getting a first place award for a science project that… Continue reading Bottle It Up
Today’s post accidentally went up yesterday (in the afternoon). It’s called Pin This. After I finished typing it, I meant to hit “save draft” but instead hit “Publish”. Whoops. So much for getting my next-day’s post done ahead of time. Time to go to bed a tad earlier tonight. Have a great day, everyone!
I guess I’m in a big, ol’ wordy mood this week. Barely any pictures or recipes, just lots of words each day. Lots and lots. So today….Pinterest. This site is just intriguing me to no end. What I find amusing about it is that I had my very own Pinterest-like wall in college when I… Continue reading Pin This
A while back, I wrote about CSAs-Community Supported Agriculture. 3-letter acronyms seem to be all the rage. This, however is something good in the food world. But there is a new acronym that is not so hot and is giving folks pause. GMOs. Have you heard of these? Genetically Modified Organisms. You might be noticing… Continue reading No Ticks please, but keep all the others
