Yes, yes, it was. I spent most of it in the car, driving back and forth between home and the hospital. On Friday, the BaldMan was admitted with a cellulitis infection in his left leg. This is not a new thing. He's had them before, and was in hospital with the first one back a … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Well, That Was a Weekend
It's February, isn't it? January seemed to disappear, especially on the writing front. I got very little done in the past month. It's been hard to get going again. I can't seem to get back into a writing routine. "Ah, yes," they say, nodding knowingly. "Writer's block. Happens to everyone." Well, no. If you have … Continue reading Monday Musings: Writing Updates
We are having sandwiches for dinner tonight. Not just a regular old sandwich, though. This will be the Cheddar and Ham Sandwich from Tom Colicchio's book, 'wichcraft. If you love sandwiches, and like to try new and interesting (and delicious!) sandwiches, I recommend the book. Anyway, this one calls for cranberry pecan bread. Now, when … Continue reading Wednesday Baking: Cranberry Pecan Bread
No, not the Kevin Costner movie. That we will just leave alone. This water world is my new aquarium. I used to have several tanks, including a 55 gallon planted community tank, and a 90 gallon African cichlid tank. But, with one thing and another, including our move from NH to MA, I didn't have … Continue reading Monday Musings: Water World
I did okay in 2018, as far as my reading goals went. I had set a goal of 28 books, and managed to read 34. My Goodreads total says 36, but there were two that I just couldn't finish, so I don't count those in my list. I've also been trying to diversify my reading … Continue reading Friday Review: Reading in 2018
Really, not much. We hosted a partial family holiday dinner. Some of the out of town regulars couldn't make it this year, so it was a smaller gathering than usual. Still a good one, with good people and good food. I started planning the aquarium I am going to be setting up fairly soon. I … Continue reading Friday Review:What I Did on My Winter Vacation
Have you caught up to the Marie Kondo craze? She of the de-cluttering, stuff tossing, excruciatingly annoying voice? If not, just Google her name. You will find more than you ever wanted to know- or hear. I mean, look, I get it. We all probably have too much stuff, but her voice just makes me … Continue reading Move Over, Marie Kondo! I Have Stuff to Put There!
We seem to have made it into 2019, haven't we? I know I've been scarce around here for the last part of December, but after Two's Company released, I decided to take some time off to enjoy the holidays, and regroup before plunging into things again. That said, if you know me at all, you know … Continue reading Monday Musings: Onward to a New Year
Our youngest daughter is married to a Brazilian. Not only is he an exceptional handyman and can fix just about anything, we also have been introduced to these yummy, cheesy snacks. They are easy to make, only take a few ingredients (although most people probably will need to get some tapioca flour), and everyone loves them. … Continue reading Wednesday Baking: Pao de Quejo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) Gluten Free
Indeed, they are! I have started decorating, and baking (as you know if you've been following my Wednesday posts). I have a bit more to do on both counts, but we've got a couple weeks, so all's good. We will be having our family celebration on December 28 this year. Usually, we try to do … Continue reading Monday Musings: The Holidays Are Coming!
