I can easily pinpoint the end of my cookbook collecting days. It was the day I joined Pinterest. Actually, it was a few months after I joined Pinterest, once I figured out what I wanted to use it for and realized that it was the world’s most enormous, easily-accessible recipe collection. The end of blogging,Continue reading “Blogging…Is This Still A Thing We Do?”
I may have mentioned this before, but I have a particular preference for a very specific genre of literature: the couple-sells-everything-buys-a-boat-quits-their-jobs-and-sails-the-world genre. If they’ve been written, I have either read them or put them on my to-read list. The stories are all essentially the same. One or both of the couple is unsure, things getContinue reading “Sail Away”
There are certain times of the year when I feel more talky, and other times when I want to crawl in a hole and talk to no one. Fall seems to be a talky time, and since I feel bad monopolizing the front page of the joint blog I’m a part of, I thought IContinue reading “Hey There!”
Hey, guess what? I’m blogging! I am, just not here. I’ve teamed up with two friends to start IMHO, a joint blog with a pop culture slant. Go check it out. I might be back here now and again, too, but for now you’ll find me over there at least twice a week. We hopeContinue reading “IMHO”
It’s been four weeks since Molly died. I miss her every single day.
She’s gone. This is the text message I sent to my family and some friends who knew what was going on last Tuesday. I couldn’t bear to say more. My heart was broken, my best friend was gone. She’s gone, my Molly. I still think I see her in the house. Out of the cornerContinue reading “Molly”
Today is my sister’s birthday (Happy birthday, Andrea!), a week and a half ago it was Luke’s birthday, and eleven days before that was my birthday. We’ve got a lot of birthdays happening around here.
Last Monday I got home after dark and closed up the ladies, as usual. I counted them, made sure they were all there, and locked them in for the night. The next morning when I let them out, they greeted me and hopped out of the coop like they do every morning, but I noticedContinue reading “ATTACK!”
So there’s this little series of books, maybe you’ve heard of them? They’re called The Hunger Games Trilogy? I’m so out of the loop on what’s popular with the masses. I don’t listen to the radio, I don’t watch TV on the TV (I watch it sans commercials on Hulu), and heck, we don’t evenContinue reading “Weekend Plans”
My mom sent me a text message the other morning which read: “Could you please update your blog so I’ll know what you’re up to?” This text came in the day after my friend Paula told me she had a very vivid dream that I had published a book of all of the craft projectsContinue reading “Surprise!”
