It’s hot. Summer is hot, proven by my social media feed filled with people posting photos of their car thermometers or screenshots of their weather apps. (do you remember winter….and the ice and snow? yeah, me too.) It’s that wake up hot, …go to bed hot, kind of hot. If you’re like me and you […]
odds and ends.
Working our way east, to take care of some business (those pesky health things that just don’t go away) we rushed through most of the entire west-to-mid-west. we ticked five (yes FIVE National Parks off our list in under two weeks (can you say exhausted) and stopped in at some tourist-trappy gems like Wall Drug and the […]
home is where you make it.
When I was about seven, we moved from the tiny brick bungalow, and the only home I’d known, into a shiny, new, yellow aluminum sided four bedroom colonial. It was nestled on a the end of a cul de sac in a neighborhood that was full of strange kids who would become my walk to school […]
well, that went by fast.
seems like just yesterday it was the beginning of spring, and here we are talking about pumpkins and apples and feeling the chill in the air. I’ve been working hard getting ready for a holiday craft show (more on that at a later date.) also, walks on the beach, lots of swimming and a few really […]
sometimes things don’t go as planned. so, alas we are moving again. moving; and moving on. I am ready for peace, and to focus on our goals. life this past year has been seriously crazy. I means seriously crazy; the stress landed me in the hospital the other night. but now, I’m ready to […]
the last morning with these two boys, in my tiny studio apartment on the Hudson River, I told them they could only watch a movie if they made my bed. “we don’t know how to make a bed!” figure it out, I told them. and you need to do it together, with no fighting. it […]
Lately I find myself craving ginger in any form. I think it started when we bought a juicer and I discovered the wonders of orange/carrot/ginger juice (a must have now on a daily basis) The spiciness of the ginger adds a refreshing zing and helps settle my stomach as well. Last night I whipped up […]
this tropical heat calls for some coconut.
I’ve been holed up in my cement tower (aka my 4th floor apartment, which thankfully includes all the air conditioning my little bones can handle) but there’s a rumor going around that it’s hot out. I actually verified this by stepping out onto my balcony to water the plants. Tropical is how I would describe […]
the graduation party.
My son graduated from college this month, and in the midst of everything going on we threw together a lovely little party. It was a relaxed, casual gathering with close friends and family and good food. I served my grandma’s ‘famous’ bbq chicken, which is an oil and vinegar based marinade with lots of pepper […]
corn dogs and craziness.
Well, it has been a month. One of those, “I hope I don’t have to live through that again” months. Packing, moving, unpacking, planning a party for a graduating son, dealing with crazy ex-landlord. You know, “that” kind of month. But that is all behind me, and now it is time to think about the […]
