This was one of those weekends I was hoping was going to be quiet and relaxing, but it ended up being pretty jam packed. Friday 1. We took my parents out to Jasper White's Summer Shack to celebrate my dad's birthday. No one had been there before but everyone loved... Continue reading

1. Blogging, in general. 2. Buy Vans Warped Tour tickets - my 13 year old would have that at number one. She's been nagging me. I haven't really been on top of it because I figure the tickets will not sell out and the concert is months away. 3. Sign... Continue reading

1. Cafe de olla - I mentioned this in an earlier post. Nancy and I had some the last time we saw each other. 2. Pan Frances - that's the Guatemalan name for it. It Mexico, I believe the name is molletes. Slices of bolillo or French bread with refried... Continue reading

I took last week off from work because it was school vacation week. One child was away on a school trip for half the week, so we stuck close to home and had a real staycation. Here are some of the things I did: 1. I tried a high protein... Continue reading

So, everyone has one, right - a baby book, where one's parent(s) lovingly record all sorts of details about one's childhood. My mother only wrote in my baby book in fountain pen. So I have a lovely, if somewhat blobby, record of scintillating things like when each of my baby... Continue reading

Oh, yum, freshly frozen berries! I would not have thought to put them on my list, but it's true, they are delicious. I love them in smoothies. The ones we buy at the farm stand go into muffins that go fast in our house.

I originally started this list as a look back at ten things I happily discovered in 2014, but I never posted it. This week's Ten on Tuesday is ten things I love, so I thought I'd modify it for that. These are ten things I started loving in 2014. (Note... Continue reading

I've been a bit out of sorts on the reading front recently. I have three books I'm currently reading. The one I've been reading the longest is a David McCullough book - The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris. It's deadly dull, particularly if, like me, you don't find Paris or... Continue reading

When I thought about a poem for St. Brigid's day, I also thought of Langston Hughes, as today is his birthday. I memorized this poem when I was 15, and I still remember most of it. Enjoy! The Negro Speaks of Rivers I’ve known rivers: I’ve known rivers ancient as... Continue reading

This long weekend has been jam packed full of stuff. I've done so much it's hard to remember - it seems like ages ago that I walked in the door on Friday after work. In roughly chronological order, here's some of what I did over the long weekend: 1. Hair... Continue reading

This is a bit difficult, ten summer beverages. If I like something, I will drink it year round. Yes, that's me drinking iced tea outside in January. So, with that said, here's my list of beverages that I will be drinking this summer. 1. Ice water 2. Iced tea 3.... Continue reading

This is Eddy Herrera, who I have seen in concert, but who isn't on this list. I don't have any photos that I have taken of the people on the list. Instagram photo from August 2013 at Fenway Park at the Latino Festival. I love music, so this week's Ten... Continue reading

I'm back to Ten on Tuesday! 1. Put the empty milk bottles out for the milkman - we have dairy delivery now, and they deliver on holidays. 2. Took my daughter to her very last dance classes of the year, that is, until the June session starts. But there aren't... Continue reading

. . . just please don't imitate Marlon Brando yelling, "STELLA!!" in A Streetcar Named Desire. And you can call me Stella because I'm getting my groove back. I'm starting with a little Wellness on Wednesday, aka WOW. I try to be healthy, I do, I really do. I'm not... Continue reading

I don't watch the Oscars, so I am here with 10 Reasons Why I Don't Watch the Oscars. 1. I don't think the Oscars measure anything. The winners are entirely too manipulated/bought/whatever to have any meaning at all. 2. Up until this year, the Oscars were a bit too white... Continue reading

I finished my second book on my 2014 list of books to read. Labor Day is a distant memory (and I still haven't found anyone who wants to take it off my hands, free, which is a bit telling), and I've just finished The Monuments Men. Before I finished the... Continue reading

Today's assignment is ten sentences that begin with "I am". . . which actually ends up being a nice way to catch up on random things. 1. I am finished reading Labor Day. Words can't express how nice it was to get through that book. It was awful. I'm definitely... Continue reading

I love reading, always have. Recently, I've been reading more than I usually can manage, thanks to some snow days, disinterest in my current knitting projects, and illness. The reading hasn't all been fabulous. I slogged through a book I'd really wanted to read, only to hate it. You can... Continue reading

As with so many things in my life, it's hard to pick just ten. . . 1. Yoga - No class the day before Thanksgiving and last week I was sick, so I'm all tight and need my yoga class. 2. Christmas cards - Haven't even bought them yet, am... Continue reading

Really, did you ever think you'd hear that Chumbawumba song again? I think it was my theme song for the month of August. I wrote my last post at the start of the month, and I had big plans to start kicking ass and taking names. I actually started the... Continue reading

(Yes, these are my actual feet, complete with Chucks covered in dog fur.) I've been stuck in this stop and start fitness loop since April. I commit to something and I try to maintain my commitment, but something always happens and I get off track. But I've had a convergence... Continue reading

1. I took the kids to Chipotle after a dance rehearsal (for the Princess) and they both ate their entire meals and asked me to get them each a milkshake and a doughnut on the way home. Normally, they don't finish their entire meals, and I don't say, "Absolutely!" when... Continue reading

I know I'm a source of embarrassment for my 11 year old. She has been quite clear about that. And I'm good with it. It's sort of a job requirement - parents should look and act different than their kids do. . . that's how you can tell which is... Continue reading
