When it snows, plan your garden

February 13, 2017

So here in the Northeast, we are in the midst of a Nor’easter. If you are unfamiliar with the term, it means a humdinger of a storm. As the snow whips about outside, we are safely ensconced in the house, each of us finding ways to entertain ourselves. I’ve got my fleece blanket, my rice […]

Joy is…

October 5, 2014

Sunday – First rock concert with my daughter (does a teeny-bopper band count as “rock”?) Monday – An empty science museum without a school field trip in sight!! Tuesday – kids willingly starting and finishing school without being asked. Wednesday – free dinner ingredients (did I mention most of it was free!) Thursday – a […]

Semi-farmed kind of life

October 3, 2014

I know, I’ve quoted two songs this week. I will try to be more original in the future;) I’ve been thinking about farming and all that that implies. I would LOVE to own a few acres and do the whole American Gothic thing (I’ve already got the bun and apron, just need to get hubby […]

When your mom hands you extra veggies you make dinner

October 3, 2014

My folks have gone out west to visit my brother and his family. When that happens, my mom empties her fridge, and I am the (usually) lucky recipient of free food. Hey, I have a lot of mouths to feed, I’ll take free food! So the bounty bestowed on me includes a red pepper, a […]

*I was looking through old posts and realized that I never published this one, so here it is* Yes, I did put Earth Day and Good Friday in the same sentence. Now, before you skewer me, hear me out. Why should we celebrate Earth Day? Personally, I love the idea of a day spent glorifying […]

Joy is free!

July 15, 2012

Let’s see if I can remember my joys this week… Monday – Playing at the park with my kids after *FREE* swim lessons (one of the advantages of living in a city). I think you could make a whole exercise regime at the park. It takes a lot of work to pump on the swing:) […]

Joy!

July 8, 2012

This was a weird week, don’t you agree? With Fourth of July in the middle of the week, it was a bit fragmented. Happy Fourth, by the way:) My joys this week were: Monday – We were trying to get back into our routine, but it didn’t work quite the way I thought. Nonetheless, the […]

This week’s joy!

June 30, 2012

This week has been crazy-busy! My brother and his family flew in from Phoenix, AZ for a visit. It was great to see them. My nieces are just the cutest things! Especially the 2yo. She is a hoot! Really friendly and not afraid of any situation. I don’t think I saw her get shy once […]
