Pig Meat and an Avian Scuplture

January 16, 2013

For the record, Monday night’s pulled pork turned out to be less than expected.  Perfectly tender, juicy, “pig meat” (thank you, Hayden) ruined by way too much paprika. And the CROCKPOT.  Once again, I am reminded that crockpot meals taste weird.  If anyone can offer up some good crockpot recipes I might be willing...

Very Little Effort Will Hopefully Yield Something Good.

January 14, 2013

It’s thirty-five degrees and windy. I am wearing gloves with tissues tucked into the cuffs. Wintertime makes me want to eat warm stuff.  Food with lots of flavor- spicy, zesty, or earthy.  Last night I tried to make some Indian food.  I think I tried once before but put the results out of memory,...

I’m a Mommy and Sort-of a Blogger, But I Don’t Want Any Free Cool Whip.

I’m a Mommy and Sort-of a Blogger, But I Don’t Want Any Free Cool Whip.

I tend to keep to myself.  I don’t have a mommies group and I don’t do lunch.  I have to make myself call people on the phone.  It’s not that I don’t love them or that I don’t think of them multiple times a day.  They should  know that.  They should feel me reaching...

Bear Country

November 21, 2012

I am finally in a deep sleep.  Dreaming in fact, when I hear Arthur barking like crazy. In my half-dead state, I jab Scott awake and tell him to go fix it. He just lies there. Arthur is still barking. I give him a shove and mumble something about being the man of the...

Tuesday’s List

October 23, 2012

Well, if this hasn’t been a blogging hiatus then I don’t know what is.  Almost a month since I have written anything?  Wow.  Good thing I never referred to myself as a writer.  In preparation for his approaching the mature age of five, Hayden has really been getting into music.  One of his favorite...

Plant Therapy

September 28, 2012

Maybe writing is like therapy.  You do it until you don’t need it anymore. Although I started blogging for myself, I feel guilty when I don’t write because this has turned into something more. Each week I think, I am going to start blogging again! But I’d rather be outside. This year-long writer’s block...

So Hum.

September 19, 2012

I am not the sweetest, but I am often thoughtful. I will serve you something warm and surprise you with something small. I am a giver of advice, which is sometimes unsolicited. I am someone who wets her pants from laughter and sheds tears of joy.  If you make me laugh you’ll have me...

Tuesday’s List

September 18, 2012

I wish Hayden could type so he could just write this blog for me.  Between dealing with plumbing problems, 106 degree heat with a 1979 AC system, and a kid who is sick every 11.2 days, I am out of words.  It’s time for Tuesday’s List, dear readers. I’d appreciate another sandwich. I’ve been...

I Am Not Usually Long Winded, But This Is Important: We Have the Right To Know

I spent my last year of graduate school interning with a rheumatologist.  Most of the patients I saw were referred for signs or symptoms of a rheumatic illness: joint pain, swelling, stiffness, headaches, vascular problems, abnormal lab values. Occasionally there was someone with a simple case of osteoarthritis, but most of these people were...

I Drive a Purse.

I Drive a Purse.

Remember that meme awhile back, “What’s in your purse?  And everybody took pictures of the insides of their purses and laughed at the crazy crap they carry around every day? I didn’t participate in that meme because pictures of my purse would have been boring. I only have two things in my purse- a...
