You know how I’m always talking about the little things in life and how they can just make things sweeter? Well, one of those little things for me is the Dinner Triumph. We have a family of four and, for the most part, my kids are good eaters. We go to various ethnic restaurants with… Continue reading She shoots, she scores!
Ironically, yesterday I was talking about words and how I brainstorm for this blog. Today, I am consumed with writing other words for a local website, and therefore, my little fingers can only handle so many words at once. No new words here today. I will return tomorrow with some divine recipes… 🙂
I’ve been asked quite a few times how I manage to come up with ideas for this blog. I post five days a week, so that’s a fair amount of writing. As a creative person, I know that ideas can’t be forced (although being in the shower seems to generate a good amount of them-don’t… Continue reading Choose Your Words
It’s early as I write this. The sky is still dark, although a tiny casting of light is starting to illuminate the sky. The trees look dark and ghostly. The clouds from the overnight are moving out…steely gray and somewhat billowy. It’s quiet outside. A sporadic car, a bird’s chirp. A squirrel making the odd… Continue reading Season 3

After going into full-tilt-boogie purge-mode… Continue reading Tag, You’re It. I’m not.
I’ve been very chatty, chatty, chatty this week. That said, I’ll give you a good weekend recipe today. Healthy, delish…even my father-in-law enjoyed these when I made them and he’s really not a whole-wheat kind of guy. We call him Mr. 50s (affectionately, of course) as he loves his white bread and Elvis. So, enjoy… Continue reading Good Hearty Weekend to You
Have you heard of yarn bombing? or Yarnstorms, as they are also called? This is cracking me up to no end. I was driving through a neighboring town of mine about a week ago and while stopped at the light, I noticed that the surrounding trees….little cherry trees…had been “yarn bombed”. Just the term is… Continue reading Da Bomb
New school year, vacation time is over, kiddos are back doing their thing in school and now I am free to move about the cabin, doing my thing. Hello, yoga class. It’s nice to see you again! Over the summer, I attended a handful of classes but those petered out towards the end…family vacation happened… Continue reading Be An Island
This weekend we wrapped up Summer 2012. It was a fair one in my book. Not the best, not the worst, but it’ll do. My extended family gathered this weekend as a last hurrah of summer. That and it was my Mom’s 70th birthday, so happy was the rule of the day. As with many… Continue reading Big Lights and Little Feet
