Dr. Watson

As most of you know, I lost my sweet Mrs. Hudson at the end of January. She was older than the hills, on full-time medication, and finally reached the point where we knew it was time to let her go. I held her while she got the shot, we buried her on our back property … Continue reading Dr. Watson

Breaking Ground

To celebrate 2022 arriving, I would like to take a moment to stop and appreciate the craziest purchase I made in 2021. Weird, right? Don’t worry. It gets weirder. Know why? In 2021, my husband and I bought . . . an aircraft hanger. Are you shocked? Horrified? Intrigued? So was I. What happened was … Continue reading Breaking Ground

Finding Rhythm

Guys. I think my life is settling into something that semi-resembles . . . normality. How do I deal with this? What do I do? Nothing has been normal for the last . . . let me think . . . three months? Give or take? Man, planning a wedding will take it out of … Continue reading Finding Rhythm

Potstickers and Pasta Dough

I’m on a dough shtick. Pasta dough, mostly. With a few dumplings thrown in. Okay, what are those things actually called? Dumplings? Potstickers? Momos? I have like ten different names for them in my head and everyone calls them something different and every time I say a name, I’m wrong. As you can tell, it … Continue reading Potstickers and Pasta Dough

Mountains, Mother’s Day, and . . .

23 pounds of fresh lasagna! Man, this was a crazy weekend. Anyone else feel like that? You’d think with social distancing and all that, the weekends would be more restful. You know, binge-watching, lying around on the couch, eating Cheetos and wondering when they’re going to let us out again. Okay, I’ve done my share … Continue reading Mountains, Mother’s Day, and . . .

Snow Days

I’m snowed in. Again. Can you tell? This is the view out my front door. By the way, can you spot the deer in this picture? There’s a big old buck sleeping under the trees behind my swing there. You can just make him out if you squint. Poor thing. We’ll see if I get … Continue reading Snow Days

Mermaids

I saw a mermaid this weekend. Actually two. Real live actual mermaids. Okay, not actual. But definitely real live mermaids. Okay, it was two actresses wearing costumes and taking pictures with the kids at the Denver Aquarium. But you were not there, so technically, you can’t prove that they weren’t real live actual mermaids. And … Continue reading Mermaids

Adulthood is a Myth

My sister sent me an awesome birthday gift this week. A Sarah’s Scribbles 2020 calendar entitled Adulthood is a Myth. I felt that one to my soul. Not only was it strange to remember that next year is 2020, but the calendar also has the added advantage of making me laugh at myself. Because adulthood … Continue reading Adulthood is a Myth

Birthday Adventures

I have a surprise for you all. Today is my birthday! Woohooo! Balloons and party hats and kazoos and cake! Not really. Actually, I have to go to work today, and my birthday weekend is already over. But I am a quarter-of-a-century-old today, and I felt the need to announce it. So. There you are. … Continue reading Birthday Adventures

Weekend Adventurers

My best friend in the whole entire world is finally home. She was gone for a long time. I missed her. But now that she’s finally home and back in our beautiful tiny cabin, it has created a rather conflicting dilemma for me. A ‘I really want to hang out with you but I work … Continue reading Weekend Adventurers
