Music Obsessed

I have a new toy. Not that kind of toy. Get outta the gutter you folks. I have a treadmill. It was a big decision despite that it was my plan when we moved and there was room for one. I was terrified that I would use it once and hate it and it would sit as an expensive clothes horse. But I like it a lot. And now that I live in the forest it’s kind of tricky building up ...more

Once A Food Blogger Always A Food Blogger?

I am a believer in the sweet potato, I believe that they make you pretty. It’s more than a belief actually, it’s like a founding principle of my life. Sometime around Christmas we had leftover grated raw sweet potato in the fridge. Don’t ask why because I have no freaking idea. About the same time I was toying with the idea of going totally paleo, or at least trying out a new paleo cookbook ....more

What I Learned Watching Too Much TV

We just finished epic tv show watching. We finished all 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy in 2 weeks, then 3 seasons of Downton Abbey in a week. There was hardly any sleep and very little interest in anything not directly related to the tv characters I was absorbed with. Example: During Downton I drank only tea. It wasn’t all soap operas, I did learn some important lessons about myself and the world ....more

Have Passport, Will Travel

We booked a vacation. A vacation to celebrate Ken finishing his thesis. Which isn’t finished yet. I sat on the fence about whether or not to commit to a vacation before the final copy was printed, bound and delivered and the date for defence was set but it’s the beach so I bent the rules. Look out Florida here we come! ...more

Excuses

So, uhm, hi. I haven’t been doing much blogging lately. Maybe you noticed? I’ve got a good reason, several good reasons. We moved. It was a big job. Huge. Took me all of August to pack. And unpacking, well, maybe I’ll be finished in 2016. OK, fine I finished unpacking already except for those 3 boxes of random junk that I’d rather just give away ....more

Just Call Me Demolition Girl

Almost three months after we’ve moved in I’m still struggling to figure out where to put all our things and how to make do with the current décor until the time comes to rip down all the walls and renovate the whole place.  Easier said then done ....more

Hello? Anyone There?

It seems that I am having trouble remembering that I am a blogger. Or why I like being a blogger ....more

How Much Internet Do I Need?

I’m on the verge of doing something drastic. Or I am doing something drastic. Let’s call it a 2 phase plan, each phase more drastic than the other. Phase 1 I’ve broken up with Twitter. It was either a Twitter break or unfollow nearly everyone in my stream. (which I haven’t entirely ruled out) I got tired of listening, reading. There’s so much judgement and craziness out there and I don’t need any(more) crazy in my life. I don’t ...more

Stay Just A Little Bit Longer

I love to hate summer. Well, maybe I don’t love to hate it but we have a mutual understanding to agree to disagree. And summer looks the other way when I complain about it online ....more
