As many of you know, I’ve worked hard since last September to pare things down and return to my normal weight, which I’ve for the most part achieved. The key for me has been focusing even more than I already was on staying away from processed foods and really, really basing my diet on a…

A confused (clouds-sunshine-rain…decide already!) and muggy day turned into a lovely evening, which I spent on our screened porch under the twinkling white lights and paper lanterns I strung up today. I am on quite the house project bender these days, sort of late-spring cleaning, I guess. Happens to me every year, as soon as…

Well, we ended up with an absolutely lovely Memorial Day. I hope you did too! It threatened to be rainy/stormy this morning, but then cleared up nicely. Humid bugger out there, but that’s OK, that’s what the pool is for, and we opened with a big swim. In fact, we opened with late morning swimming…

Yay, it’s sunny! Yes, we have actual sun on Memorial Day weekend, we Minnesotans are thrilled. We are so by the pool today, first with Andrew, Rishia, and Noah for brunch, then just us, and then later still John and I plan to take (drag) the kids to a county park reserve for a family…

Dinner in the bar at La Belle Vie? Va va voooooom, my friends, sensual delights galore. Whew, I’m still recovering. We sat right at the elegant, candle-lit bar, watching the bartender do her thing. Beautiful drinks, one after the other, with fresh fruit purees, freshly squeezed juices, and clever combinations. I, who rarely order an…

Date Night! John and I are goin’ out, just the two of us, and it’s about time! OK, OK, yes we’ve snuck in a couple of fabulously romantic La La Lucia’s lunches – but dinner, alone, not in a long while. So tonight’s the night, baby, time to pin up my hair (this rain, oy,…

Cooper Time! I had a visit from my nephew today…still The Cutest! He said “ca-ca” (cracker) for the first time today – completely magical to witness him saying a new word! He took a few steps, crawled a few miles, banged a few measuring cups, was completely enthralled with my Bucky Badger Bobblehead, checked out…

Friday Morning Coffee with Suz! On Tuesday! We’re not hitting many Fridays lately, nor much coffee for that matter, dang. Hate when life gets in the way of my good times! But hey, we slid in a round of coffee and chat this morning and it was great, as always. Baseball tonight so I grilled…

You’re going to think this is so stupid, but I just tonight used a fish-grilling basket for the first time. Duuuuh… I’ve had it for years, I’m not sure why I never bothered to use it before. Or why I suddenly decided to today. Anyhoo, it’s fabulous! I bought an early piece of Copper River…

Welcome to our Bat Mitzvah-Birthday-Baseball Weekend!! Yesterday and last night, Avery’s Bat Mitzvah – Avery is the daughter of our friends Steve & Jen. Held at the lovely Temple Israel, it was a gorgeous and fun ceremony, just the right balance of religious imagery, calls to our better instincts, and flat-out humor. As Steve so…
