Toggle Commented yesterday on the perfect travel project.... at woolythyme
I'm looking for a travel project. We travel fairly often, so you would think I'd have this down pat. Small. Portable. Mindless. Not asking much. The process: Look at all the UFOs kicking around. At the moment, there are too many to list, but here are a few I was... Continue reading

I wish there was a better way than 'guessing' like i do....sometimes it works, sometimes it only sort of works!!!

On a walk like that, you have just reassured yourself that your 'techy teen' hasn't really strayed too far from your family values.....and will eventually (sooner than you probably now think!!!) return as your best friend. (Ask me how I know this??? I'm blessed, too.)

i like that idea!!! The sad thing...I have other leak-proof water bottles (tried and true), but these Yetis are the BEST at keeping water COLD. (Ice will stay 'ice' even if you leave your cup in the car for hours in 90 degree heat...making the inside of the car in the 800 degree range!!!) They are absolutely amazing. WHY can't the geniuses who designed these, figure out how to keep the nice cold water INSIDE the tumbler???!? Another mystery in my life!

I had a teeny-tiny knitting setback yesterday. It all started when I tried to get myself and all my paraphernalia from the baseball complex parking lot to the field. (Watching Grandson #1...aka the his 12U World Series). Purse--check. Camera (extra-long lens)--check. Knitting, knitting, and more knitting--check (it was an... Continue reading

Now there's three things you can do in a baseball game: You can win or you can lose or it can rain. --Casey Stengel We've had a rather crazy, rainy week--complete with a flooded basement (again....sigh), power outages, and a tornado (set down a few miles away).

it's funny you said that...because that's a point that she makes in the book....the salt and fat and sweeteners are all addictive in their own way, which just keeps us craving all the wrong, unhealthy things. I'm not far in the book, but she comes down pretty hard on fast food (duh!)...the way the Golden Arches are the same whether you are in the US or Thailand or India. Homogenization of food and losing local cuisine. She's all about taste...and love of food. (My hubby hates to go out to eat, too....he says he gets a better meal at home. It may not be I'm such a better cook, but that so much is 'homogenized' and processed in restaurants these days!!!!!)

This really is a book review. I'm in a fun, new book club....and we decided that every few months we would read a cooking/memoir book, each chose a recipe to make, and gather for dinner to discuss the book. (In between cooking months, we're just an ordinary book club.) My... Continue reading

What did I ever do to deserve a friend like this? This friend has been on a purging binge. I know how those go. I've been on those myself---many times.
