I am going to my happy place

Summer is unofficially over. Too bad no one told Mother Nature! Our 5 day forecast: UGH! It is so miserable out there my yard looks hot and tired. Which, for California native plants, is actually quite normal. They go dormant in the dry and heat. Come cooler wet weather they will perk up again. I am …

I am Wonder Woman

As much as it annoys me to admit it, I am addicted to my smart phone. The singularly most important feature for me is … um… it was just on the tip of my tongue, or should I say fingertips. Huh, what was I saying typing? Oh, yeah, the important feature on my cell phone: …

I was tired so I napped…

A friend once said she took a nap because she loved her family so much she did not want to subject them to her grouchiness when she was tired. I nap in “self defense”. When you spawn a child that doesn’t sleep you do what you gotta do to stay functional. Today I had a …

For any woman that needs a smile

Monday’s events in Boston and cooking up some real disasters in the kitchen (as in so bad I had to throw it out) have not left with much to write about this week that wasn’t whiney. Heck, I even dredged up the Bell Pepper myth again over on That Recipe. I don’t think it came out …

If you need a laugh or two or more.

Ugh, we had been doing so well on the sleep front, until the last two nights. Yesterday my “alarm” went off at 4:30 and this morning it was 5:30. I wish he had a snooze button. But, once he wakes up it is non-stop chattering. Coffee is helping, and I am sure that bracing cold …
