OLD DOGS DO NOT DIE We have a secret, you and I, That no one else shall know, For who, but I can see you lie, Each night, in fireglow? And who but I can reach my hand Before we go to bed, And feel the living warmth of you... Continue reading

Apparently they let just about anyone become an adult these days. *poof!* How did that go by so fast? What happened? I only have these cupcakes {{made with the salt of my tears}} to share with you. Continue reading

The road past this stand wound up and down, back and forth, round and round. It's one of those back country roads that seems to go on forever. Did you pass that house before? A this-doesn't-look-familiar-no-wait-it-does kind of road. I was headed the back way over some small mountains to... Continue reading

As you can see from these photos October is jumping from one thing to another. Birthdays are passing, trees are changing, pumpkins are popping, and once in a while I get a small spot of quiet with an inexpensive, quick lunch at a local bakery and a chance to catch... Continue reading

OOOOoooo... This Swedish meatball recipe and the cream sauce to go with it has been something I have been looking for. More specifically the sauce. You can't do Swedish meatballs without the sauce and so many recipes leave that out. Looking forward to trying this one over the weekend. Thank you! PS I always bake my meatballs in a convection oven (400 degrees, 20 min.). It gives them a nice little crunch on the outside and I don't have to mess around with them in a pan on the stovetop. #hatethat

Gather Ye Roses Gather ye roses while ye may, Old time is still a-flying; A world where beauty fleets away Is no world for denying Come lads and lasses, fall to play Lose no more time in sighing. The very flowers you pluck to-day To-morrow will be dying; And all... Continue reading

Autumn beckons quietly around here now that we are pulling out of that horrible drought. As I type this it is a stunning September day and I’m wishing it would last forever. {{I’m trying to absorb all its benefits through the windows.}} As crabby as I was for the Daughters... Continue reading

Honestly, it took forever to get these photos posted. I snapped them on Father's Day/Summer Solstice when we went for a bike ride in Champoeg Park (pronounced "sham-poo-E") and could not get them to upload to Typepad for the life of me. I also tried to get a shot of... Continue reading

This is my favorite place on the Oregon coast. It's one of those towns that isn't a big touristy hub, but there's enough to explore that every time you visit you have some choices. The Daughters always enjoy the tide pools. It never gets old. Tiny schools of fish, anemones,... Continue reading

Well, of course, film-wise there is Emma Thompson and Colin Firth in the fabulous "Nanny McPhee" movie (#1, not #2) and it goes without saying, Disney's "Mary Poppins." I don't know how the books are, but I know some people who loved them.
