A lot has changed in our world since the Flying Squid left for boot camp. No teen drama, late night conversations, genral lunacy and an endless supply of dirty dishes in the sink. It is very strange indeed. I've been channeling all of my emotions into my knitting. Last week... Continue reading

I realized the other day that after living in South Florida for 5 years I only own 1 pair of jeans that I seldom wear due to the balmy climate and that is the only time blue makes an appearance in my wardrobe. Now I have nothing against the color.... Continue reading

For those of you who have tried the Dukan Galette and found it to be rather unpleasant to eat, you are not alone. The thought of eating this nasty thing every day was daunting indeed. I'd rather have a muffin with my morning breakfast. A few weeks ago, I tweaked... Continue reading
