Larvae is my least favorite word of all time.

We spent a good chunk of the day at a swimming pool today. Man, it was a hot one. I purposely didn’t put sunscreen on my legs because I really enjoyed peeling the skin from my 4th of July sunburn and I was hoping I could recreate that experience. I think I only succeeded in […]

Your turn to dish.

Without going into specifics, I have recently been in touch with a piece of my past, and I have been thinking a lot about whether or not it’s useful to spend time on regret. I know that choices we make (good or bad) are all opportunities for growth and learning, but do you ever wish […]

Witches Night Out

This was my first time doing this, but I don’t think it will be my last. Every year at Gardner Village they have Witches Night Out. This year I was invited to come and I’m so glad I said yes. There are events and contests and all of the shops are decked out for Halloween. […]

Sunday Dinner with the Bakers!

Lucky us. We had dinner at our friends’ house tonight. Jenny is a fabulous cook and she made the best clam chowder tonight. It was the perfect fall meal. I’m not kidding, this was REALLY good. I’m going to add this recipe to my permanent collection. She was nice enough to let me post it […]

From the garden.

The current arrangement on my kitchen table is made entirely with cuttings from my herb garden. It smells so heavenly. Kind of like spicy licorice. Every time I walk past it, I inhale deeply and smile.   While I was cutting them, this guy jumped out of nowhere right onto my hand. It scared me […]

Two stories about meat.

My vegetable garden is pathetic this year. Usually by this time, I am swimming in tomatoes and I give them away by the bag full. I don’t know what the problem is this year, but I’m just now starting to get tomatoes. But, oh baby, are they good. I’m getting big, juicy, bright red, vine-ripened, […]

Day Trip

All day yesterday at Bear Lake with our friends… It’s so nice to be somewhere and not have any idea or care about what time it is. When you’re only job is to relax and enjoy.     I was a little worried about The Little Guy not having a nap, but he was actually […]

Sunday Dinner-Pork Chops with Sweet onion Marmellata

This recipe comes from Giada DeLaurentis of Food Network fame. Do you watch her show? I Tivo it and watch it at night while I’m in my bed. She has some great recipes, but beyond that…she’s very smiley and she always shows a little cleavage. Entertainment on so many levels.   Onion Marmellata: 1/4 cup […]

And this is my favorite.

I planted all manner of sunflowers along the side fence in the back yard. The bees love them. The neighbors on the other side of the fence…not so much. Haven’t they heard about the bee crisis? I’m just doing my part.

Three things of note.

I’ve been working on this video project today that has both stressed me out and taken up a huge chunk of my day. Also, it caused me to growl at The Little Guy. I feel guilty about it. Really, really guilty. It’s just that at the very moment he decided to say ‘Momma’ 500 hundred […]
