Ok, well, this is a little embarrassing. I apparently got out over my skis a little bit. I thought today was going to be my 100th post. It’s all written and ready to go. I hit publish this morning and it tells me that I’m only at 99. Are you kidding me? So, here I… Continue reading Whoops.
I love games. I grew up playing board games with my family-Scrabble, Sorry, Ming, Uno, Monopoly, Pictionary. You’re familiar with them. It seems that I wasn’t the best at reading the directions, though. It was discovered back in the mid-90s while settling down to Scrabble with friends that I apparently had been scoring my game… Continue reading Scrabble For One
Selective Splurges. That’s what it’s all about. Easier said than done, too. Some have mastered it (see the book “French Women Don’t Get Fat”. It’s in my bathroom right now) and others try. Group me in latter right now but I’m aspiring to be in the former. As I told you, it’s been “the birthday… Continue reading Give me (or him) a B!
“That’s the thing with magic. You’ve got to know it’s still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible for you.”-Charles de Lint I’m back. Decided to take yesterday off along with the rest of the world. White jeans and potato salad days, right? Last week, it rained cats and dogs around here. Ridiculous… Continue reading The Incredible Lightness of Being
There is one of those silly little surveys floating around Facebook right now that asks you “How Many Foods out of 100 Have you Eaten?”. We’re talking relatively interesting foods here. Fois Gras. Pho. Shark. That kind of thing. I’m amused to say that I scored a 63 on this list. Not too shabby. Because… Continue reading Armchair traveler? Fridge traveler.
Which are you? I used to be more of a pack-rat, but now I’m in full-tilt purger-mode. Or so I like to think. Maybe it has something to do with having 2 kids. You always hear about how much you will accumulate when you have children, but until you are living in the piles of… Continue reading Purgers vs. Pack Rats
This past weekend was my husband’s birthday. And one of his favorite things in the world is ice cream. He’s 42. Go figure. Give this man a bowl of good chocolate ice cream and he’s in heaven. Seriously. Talk about being easily satisfied in life. As I love to bake for birthdays, I decided to… Continue reading I’m Going to SCREAM!
This weekend, as I told you in the firepit post, was GORGEOUS. Perfect weather, the kind that makes you think that there truly is no better place on earth. Winds were slight, sunlight was abundant, not even a cloud in the sky-blue-crayon blue sky. The perfect of May Days. Naturally, I was itching to do… Continue reading Get Dirty
Fire is the most tolerable third party. ~Henry David Thoreau Remember when I talked about camping a few days ago and mentioned that kids just never get bored when they go camping? That they can be completely enamored with the simplest things? Well, I think I found the adult equivalent to that this weekend. In… Continue reading That Wonderful Spark
Just as I was about to get my fingers typing and launch into a new blog post, some words came across my email this afternoon. They came from another blog called Lead. Learn. Live. David Kanigan is the blogger’s name and he has some interesting stuff on that blog of his. He has lots to say… Continue reading In My Own Words….Not.
