Food Coma

Is anyone else still in a food coma? This was my first Thanksgiving not flying home to NY to celebrate the holiday. Although it is always nice to be together with loved ones over the holidays, technology has truly been a gift this year. We were able to have a google meeting with both ofContinue reading “Food Coma”

Lots of Love in a little Package

I grew up with two black labs, Sarah and Emma. I loved them to pieces. In fact I didn’t get my first dog until I was eight, so I begged for years to get one. I would literally get down on all fours and bark like a dog, haha. Then on the eve of myContinue reading “Lots of Love in a little Package”

“Lasagna…Nature’s Perfect Food” said Garfield

I agree! I decided to try a new recipe last night. Sometimes as a vegetarian I run out of ideas of what to make for dinner. I think we all have a tendency to rely on the same dishes over and over again. Since I have extra time on my hands these days, I’ve beenContinue reading ““Lasagna…Nature’s Perfect Food” said Garfield”

A Little Discovery

About half way through the summer we started getting tired of walking around our neighborhood and the same parks all the time. We enjoy getting outside and exercising now that we spend so much time inside the house, but boredom began setting in. So we decided that every weekend we would try to explore aContinue reading “A Little Discovery”

Ravioli, the way to my Heart

I would have taken pictures of this dish being made, but I wasn’t there when the hard work was put in. I was lucky enough to be the recipient of this excellent meal made by my wonderful husband. While I was out socializing with a friend, he was in the kitchen slaving away over homemadeContinue reading “Ravioli, the way to my Heart”

Weaving with Friends

After I got my art degree in New York, I wasn’t sure what direction to go in. I didn’t want to be a teacher at the time and I didn’t have an interest in pursuing art as a full-time career, so where to go from there? I did some research and discovered a program calledContinue reading “Weaving with Friends”

Pumpkin Carving

Am I too late to write about pumpkin carving? I know, I know, Halloween was two weeks ago! If you read my post yesterday, you might have figured out my favorite season is Fall. I miss everything Fall related, so I tried to bring back that childhood feeling by carving pumpkins with friends. Being inContinue reading “Pumpkin Carving”

Falling for Fall

I find the longer I live in Texas, the more I miss “Fall.” I miss the fall of my childhood, where it became time for sweaters, jean jackets, boots, and hats. I miss apple picking and walks at the local nature preserve. I miss jumping into a giant pile of leaves. One of my favoriteContinue reading “Falling for Fall”

Creating Life

No, I’m not talking about giving birth. I’m talking about plants!! Thanks to the pandemic, I’ve discovered the joy of gardening. The last two years I have tried unsuccessfully to grow Lavender plants from seeds. Even if the seedlings sprouted, they never seemed to make it past that stage. I am happy to report thatContinue reading “Creating Life”
