Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Easter is upon us. This coming Sunday, in fact. I always think of Easter as the beginning of Spring. I suppose it's partly because at the time I grew up, Easter was when you got your new Spring dress, shoes, and coat. Oh, and the hat. Can't forget the hat! Things have changed now and … Continue reading Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

Nothing really major to report. The world is moving along, the days are longer, and we are having some very Spring-like weather. I have some garden plants starting in the basement on the new heat mats. They seem to be doing their job. It's been about a week and I have a few seedlings poking … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

If this is February, I can't wait to see what March is like. It will probably come in like a starving lion taking down a gazelle and go … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Smörgåsbord of Stuff

Monday Musings: Hey, It Snowed Last Night

Which isn't surprising as it it still Winter here in the Northeast US.

It was just a couple inches, and it's pretty … Continue reading Monday Musings: Hey, It Snowed Last Night

Tuesday Thoughts: Well, That Was a Weekend

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

Monday Musings: Writing Updates

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

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
