30 of 30, and Arroz Amarillo (Yellow Rice)

The last gasp, Day 30 of NaBloPoMo 2010. Like I said a week or so ago, it was a lot easier than I expected, what with going back and recycling previous posts and recipes. I like bringing back some old favorites, plenty of which none of you have seen before unless you’ve been hanging around […]

little things

For some reason, I’ve been thinking a lot about the little things in life, you know, those tiny aspects of your day that maybe you don’t always think about, but doing them makes you happy and feel better, and not doing them kind of stinks. Such as….. ~~ always having something in the car for […]

easy like sunday

This is the best kind of morning. It’s so quiet as I’m the only one awake. We decided last night to attend the late church service this morning, so instead of rolling everyone out of bed to get out of the house by 8:30, we’re not needing to be coherent until a few hours later. […]

turkey hangover, with extras

It happens, right? There’s so much turkey, and celebrating and eating, then more eating and more celebrating and having another piece of pie before we drag full tummies home and into bed, falling exhausted against the pillows. Then we open the fridge to see all that leftover turkey. That is, if you’re lucky enough to […]

round 2

Holidays are always doubly fun when you have in-laws. There’s two Thanksgiving celebrations, and two Christmas gatherings. We juggle, we travel and we eat way too much food in a short amount of time. But that’s the way it is, and the celebrations are always a good time. I’m blessed to have a wonderful and […]

Many blessings to you and yours

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone…. and many thanks to you for coming by to visit.


~~ for my health, especially following last month’s car accident. ~~ for the fact that last month’s car accident was not serious ~~ for good insurance, oh thank goodness for good insurance ~~ for the 5 kittens and their mama who were rescued last month, and that someone may open their hearts and homes to […]


Thanksgiving is just a few days away. Like you need to be reminded of that? We’ll be experiencing a pre-Thanksgiving snowstorm this year but I’m thinking it won’t hamper any of our plans. My family is all local, and hardy winter souls with dependable cars and a lifetime of snow experience. Plus it’s a homemade […]

more snow coming

Just in time for Thanksgiving, we should see a pretty decent snowfall, and plunging temperatures. It’s predicted to be the coldest Thanksgiving in years. I still plan to do my turkey on the grill like I do every year. No words, or a recipe today. It’s Monday, and I’m feeling a bit ‘blah’.

missing my harmon

This was taken last January, a few months before he died. I kind of knew, somewhere, that it was my last winter with him. And I treasured the time, the cuddles and his kingly appearance, the loud meows he greeted me with, and the way he looked at me with all that love present in […]
