A friend told me the other day that I’ve been a little light on the recipes lately. And I finally pulled my beloved may-they-never-fall-apart-because-they-fit-perfectly WHITE jeans out of my closet to wear the other day. Rainy, gray days be damned. This spring, weather-wise, has been a beast. What do those two things translate to? As… Continue reading White Jeans and Potato Salad
“I Dwell in Possibility…”-Emily Dickinson As I mentioned, no Macaron-Making class last night. Not happy here. In fact, I was so disappointed at the time that I really just wanted to throw a fit in the (very dark and deserted) parking lot of that cafe. Thank goodness it wasn’t PMS week, that’s all I can… Continue reading Noodley Flexibility
Last night, I was supposed to go to a Macaron (with one “O”) Making class at a local cafe. And today’s post was going to be all about my French pastry adventures. Got to the cafe…all is dark. No one is around. I thought I was on Candid Camera. Do I have the right date?… Continue reading Epic Fail
Following yesterday’s possibly-TMI (too much info) post, I’m running with the fiber thing. And camping. ‘Tis the season. Have you ever been camping? It’s a hoot. And the miraculous thing about it to me is that kids are totally amused simply by being at a campsite. Just when you think your kids are completely jaded… Continue reading The World According to Gorp
with too much Flax. What? A few springs ago, a friend of mine (the one moving to a far-away state that I recently wrote about) took me and my family camping. My husband is an Eagle Scout, so he knows his way around a campground. Our kids had never gone camping, so it seemed like… Continue reading It was a Dark and Stormy Night…
Simply but beautifully stated… “Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.”– Lin Yutang
I’m a Mom or Mama gal. That’s what my girls call me and even though I may hear it a bazillion times in the course of a week, it always makes me happy (maybe at 3am not so much, but still). Sometimes I joke to my husband that I should carry a clicker like some… Continue reading Mother, Mom, Ma, Mama!
Today. Today at 10:14 am I will turn a new number. The Vanna White of numbers is about to grab ahold of the one that is glowing and…and….and….there it is! Number 42. Sounds good if I were on a field and that were my jersey. Well, on the playing field of life, I’m now number… Continue reading Thoughts on a Year
*A little break today from the Mom’s Day posts that I’ve been doing this week. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know a Mother’s work is 24/7. Still.* It never fails to amaze me when things in life happen in twos or threes. For example, I had never even heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey… Continue reading Genuine Wild Things
“Go for it. What do you have to lose?” That’s something that my Mom said to me a fair amount when I was growing up. It resonated with me then and has stuck with me still. In fact, those words rang in my ears when I decided to attempt this blog. Glad I heard them… Continue reading Hello? Ok, I’m listening….
