Hello Sunshine! There’s most definitely a feeling of spring in the air, what with 50 degrees yesterday (s-weet!) and bright sunshine today. Add the blooming of my forced bulbs (smell so earthy and alive) and I have to admit – I’m in a truly good mood today. Woo hoo! I’ll take a little walk, plan…

OK, Stephanie, today you are re-tackling the downstairs. I did such a good job for awhile! Hung pictures, cleaned, moved furniture, planned. And then in typical fashion, I slowly.. lost… my…. steam. Yeah, I got sick, but before that I had to pause to wait for more picture frames (photo collage project), and to purchase…

The Baseball Moms, and my friend Karen, have mentioned interest in 1) easy, family-friendly recipes that 2) don’t waste ingredients (either don’t require you to buy some special ingredient that you’ll never use again, or a series of coordinated recipes that use up all of the special ingredient). I’m going to think about that, and…

Here’s the upside of being sick for awhile – you get mighty grateful for your health. Now that I’m feeling better, I am appreciating how good it feels to feel good. I am so very lucky, of course, to be in overall good health, it gives me pause (and because I’m from the Midwest, a…

John’s home from a ski trip and we’re so glad! We really missed him, we love having John home. I made broiled lamb loin chops smeared with mustard, tarragon, and olive oil, potatoes crushed with herbs and Hope Creamery butter (inspired by a potato recipe Marge was telling me about; recipes posted in comments below),…

Woo hoo! We finally pulled off episode three of Feminine Hijinx, thank you, thank you. It felt great (hearing myself saying the word “great” on FH, not-so-great, OMG, soooo Minnesoooota, it cracks me up every time, and I say it a lot) to get out of the house, and over to Suz’s, to see my…

Love Story, pretty much the opposite of Feminine Hijinx, is what I actually did last night. Because I was still sick yesterday, after my hopeful start in the morning. What a seriously crappy week! It was kind of therapeutic, I think, to bawl my eyes out – even though it’s a rather silly story, to…

Check out Suz, the bronze medalist (or should I say metalist?), from yet another pic that I stole off her blog. Since, as often as I write about Suz, I would have mentioned that she were an Olympic athlete, you’ve probably already guessed this isn’t her medal. It actually belongs to her friend Trish, hard-won…

I raided my cousin Kim’s photo website for pictures of my cousin Michael’s wedding this past weekend. So fun! I saw everyone on Friday, but not the day of the wedding (the day I got sick), and I’m not surprised to see that everyone looked gorgeous. I even snagged a pic of my dad dancing…

Have you ever tried these before, Weetabix? I bought them on a whim from the organic cereal section – I like whole grain cereals for breakfast, obnoxiously whole grain. Turns out Weetabix is a popular British cereal, eaten in many different ways – fried (ugh, although, I haven’t tried it), toasted with jam, as a…
