I’m still recovering from yesterday’s Bronco game. It was close, and I may have a serious heart condition now, but in the end the Broncos won by two points and we can relax for two weeks until we all have a heart attack together watching the final game. We had friends over, and ate all […]

We’re fondue fanatics. I think I may have created a monster when I casually mentioned to my husband that we should get a fondue set, because he loves all things vintage. Now, a few years later, we have at least six vintage fondue sets in an array of ugly ’70’s colors. Yeay. Someone call the […]
Ohhhh, goodness! I know everyone says it, but I can’t believe it’s a new year already. Wow, that was fast. Did you go somewhere fabulous for New Year’s? I went to a friend’s, and just as I was bemoaning having to put on pants, she texted and reminded me it was a pajama party. Hallelujah […]
This is one of the kids’ favorite books. My son has loved it since the day I first read it, shouting along with the story — “Go away scraggly purple hair!” and all the rest. So when Laura Kelly invited me to participate in a Halloween popcorn box blog hop, I set the kids to […]
School’s back in session. So far we’ve been on-time every day, with our books and lunches and instruments and everything the kids need for the day. We’ve been getting to bed mostly on-time, and eating dinner…well, almost always mostly on-time. I’m basking in the back-to-school glow, because by next Monday we’ll have gone off the […]

They were all in the backyard — kids running around in bathing suits, eating watermelon and chocolate cake and having water fights or swimming. As I grew […]
My kids can finish off a box of cereal in one sitting. There are four of them, and they each usually want two bowls apiece, and by the time we’re done with all that and a wee bit for me the entire box is gone. Add in a preteen boy who’s beginning to ask for […]
Oh, my. Summer cocktails. Perhaps the best part of summer? Except for the warm weather and the swimming and the not getting grumpy children up and out the door while making sure no one forgot their homework or their lunch or their jacket. Hallelujah to all of it. I’m so ready.
Lemons, lemons, lemons! As I’ve told you before, I used to live in The Land of Abundant Lemons (no water…but lemons wherever you go). And now I miss them. They’re so light, and bright, and…yellow. So happy.
Ohhhh, I could eat me some pancakes all the day long. Breakfast in general, actually. I could eat breakfast all day, every day, for the rest of my life and never ever get tired of it. Pancakes and waffles and cinnamon rolls and eggs and fruit,– all washed down with gallons of hot chocolate and […]
