What I’ve Been Up To – May stragglers

Here are a few pics of May I missed posting… We visited my parents and stopped by Slaughter Beach in Delaware: This wasn’t from our garden – but these blackberries were awesome! This was from the garden: Our iris did really well this year! A little First Aid Kit on the record player:


What I’ve Been Up To – May

Some May photos.. Another Disney Food & Wine recipe – Karaage Chicken with Teriyaki sauce – it was good! The chicken is breaded in corn starch and we fried it in a Dutch oven. Here’s the recipe (this vegan blog substituted for the chicken of course): http://disneyvegan.com/post/105352266621/epcot-recipe5 We went to Ft Fred and I barely took any pics since we … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – April Stragglers

How about something positive and not ranty about politics for a change? Here are some pics from the end of April. Doug and I went for a walk by this pond by the Town Center and saw these three turtles lined up on a log. They were super cute. You can see them at the bottom here: Another Disney Food … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – April

Spring flowers and other stuff: They had a bake sale at work to support the day care center – I bought more NASA meatball iced cookies and also these little rocket ship nutella pies! My pic for Jen’s virtual tiara party: Delicious Easter brunch at my sister-in-law’s. My favorite things are still the tiny sausages wrapped in bacon and baked … Continue Reading →


Some winter leftovers…

I noticed that I missed uploading a few winter pictures, and there was one cute one of the Willow that I wanted to post, so here you go – a reminder that I’m really glad winter is over! Not my pic, obviously, but cute: Also not mine! Mmm – cinnamon buns on a snow day: Sunset: This is the one. … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – March

Here some pics from March! We had snow late into March this year, at the same time the crocuses were coming up… More in progress pics of our family room repaint. Lotta paint scraped. More crocuses: I finally got the hardback of Apollo’s Daughters in my hot little hands. This is the companion volume to the first Athena’s Daughters. John, … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – February, part 2 (plus some March)

I’ve been super busy and preoccupied this week and I feel behind (and frankly a little apathetic) on lots of things. But how about some pictures? This sums the recent internet up nicely. Not my art – credit is on the image. Also seen on the internets – a tiny hamster in a sweater. This was my favorite of the … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – February, part 1

It’s been busy, as always. We’re in the process of repainting our family room (which badly, badly needs it since the paint over the paneling from the prior owners was peeling) and which has required not only painting but scraping. Ugh. And I’m also trying to sew a new saque for the francaise dinner, helping to plan the francaise dinner … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – January

On the way to lunch we were in back of this. Alex said that years of Grand Theft Auto had prepared him for this moment. A beautiful sunset from the roof: Snow! Got to use my severed Wampa arm ice scraper: So Koji posted this picture of Joe at AAS on Facebook: I commented on it, and Joe said “Oh … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – December, part 2

Here’s Willow either singing Christmas carols or really over the holidays. Lesa made this for me – love it! This can’t be comfortable… I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but our these doors make for good card holders. I ran out of gas and present wrapping suffered for it: Kitty! We put on Muppet Christmas Carol … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – December, part 1

I have some downtime, so time to play blog post catch-up! Selfie time! With my new fav Starbucks drink. They came out with some new latte this year, chestnut praline. Sounds terribly trendy but I love it like whoa. Some Starbucks still have it even though the holidays are over, but I don’t know for how long. I will be … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – November

Sorry to be Posty McPosts-a-lot but I have been so busy and I’ve got a little break now, so I want to get things updated before the New Year. We’ll see if that happens. Ok, so November. Here’s my fav tree from a different angle than I normally catch it at: Doug and I spent an afternoon playing D&D with … Continue Reading →
