We've had a rough couple of weeks. First I had a major work event which required travel to the mountains. The work leading up to it was fairly stressful and then to add to it, the change in barometric pressure... Continue reading

Yeah, just Gene. He and I are on a first name basis. That would be Gene Kelly. Today is his birthday, so I figured I just couldn't let it pass by without letting everyone know. Two recent incidents make me... Continue reading

I've been gone forever, it seems. Just been hugely busy with summer. School began this week and this weekend we will be doing back to back picnics for the boy's Cub Scouts (Sat), and baseball (they won the championship!) I've... Continue reading

Tonight my sister had her grand opening party at her new tea room. As many of you know, she has catered tea parties for several years (I'm usually the help). Well earlier this year she came across a wonderful opportunity... Continue reading

We took several days and planted ourselves at the Garden of the Gods Campground outside of Manitou Springs, CO. We went there last year and had a wonderful time and decided to do it again. Lots to see so close... Continue reading

So today was my first day without the boy. I miss him already. But I'm beginning to breathe a little more slowly. Beginning to unwind just a bit. As usual, the 4th of July was a rainy evening. Every freakin'... Continue reading

You may not recognize her, but if you heard Ilene Woods sing, "So This is Love," you'd know that she was the voice of Cinderella in the Disney animated movie. She is hands down my favorite singer of all the... Continue reading

I haven't posted in forever but it's not because I've been sitting around doing nothing. Let's see... The boy's baseball season is finally over and they won the championship game! The fact that they even got to the championship game... Continue reading

I watched the two episodes of Losing it With Jillian on my computer and I'm hooked. Normally I don't care for reality shows, particularly if they are degrading. But I like this one. First off, I like Jillian Michaels' style.... Continue reading

I was so excited to go to the flea market in Littleton today. From what I'de heard it was the closest thing in Denver to the kind of flea market I like (think Rose Bowl Swamp meet only smaller). So... Continue reading

But this is a good one. I've often lamented about my sad state of a muffin top. First it was something only I noticed. But now it could be used as part of a descriptor for moi. I am on... Continue reading

Most of you know how much I love paper. I just do. I like the way it feels when you sit down to write a note, or even when you grab a spiral notebook to journal. It's all good. And... Continue reading

Lena Horne was quite striking and many photographs of her capture the great bone structure, beautiful smile, and all that. But I love this illustration and I'm sorry that I can't tell you who the artist is. If you know,... Continue reading

I'm a couple of days late BUT...May 11th is the birthday of Irving Berlin. It's hard for me to imagine the soundtrack of the 20th century without Irving Berlin. I mean the guy wrote White Christmas for crying out loud.... Continue reading

They eat them. Maybe not all the French, but I've seen more than one recipe that shows you how to sautee the leaves, much like Swiss chard, or kale. If we only embraced our dandelions I would be a happy... Continue reading

The thought is just scary, huh? Well, in my efforts to do cardio everyday and not have it be the treadmill downstairs, I've purchased several different aerobic dvds. I picked up a two-pack called Quick Time where each workout is... Continue reading

The Broncos took Tim Tebow in the first round yesterday. I have no idea why. Sure, Kyle Orton is no John Elway, but I just wonder what this coach is up to. The pic. is obviously not the Broncos. It's... Continue reading

I never meant to be gone so long! But as my friend, Lori says, she's tired of the pajama picture. Life has been crazy but that's no excuse. Seems like everytime I have something to say, I don't have the... Continue reading

It wasn't intentional but seems I've been absent for about a month. I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but there are times where I just can't bring myself to write anything. True, that happens quite often when... Continue reading

(image by Charlotte Geary) We have big, fat, wet snowflakes today. The kind that you can catch on your tongue. Not a lot in our neighborhood but my sister called from her home in the foothills and they're getting quite... Continue reading

This story about the resurgence of square dancing caught my eye. Seems that small groups of young people are popping up to dance and bringing some new music with them. I have memories of learning to square dance when I... Continue reading
