I prefer clean shaven men. Something about being a gentleman and well cared for. Plus, that is the way my husband is! Lately my son has grown various facial hair. I prefer him clean shaven, too!

My sister and I have always ironed sheets (at least the top part) and pillowcases. It makes the bed so much more special. People have always laughed when they learn that about us. Glad to know we aren't alone! Enjoy the adventure of today.

Always enjoy reading your blog. THIS one and the next, I read sitting in a Star Bucks. Couldn't help but laugh out loud! Thanks for the fun!

This sounds fabulous! Will look to see when fresh peas show up at Farmer's Market and try it out.

We had the same cookie cutter growing up! Grandma was the baker in our family. Last night I made a batch of gingerbread to cut into turkeys, pineapples, acorns, and maple leaves this morning. Don't think I'd be welcome for Thanksgiving without them!

Lots of favorite soups. One is a pumpkin that is quite a bit different. This afternoon I'm making a pot of chicken tortilla soup. I'll freeze some to take to my parents on Thanksgiving. This year Daddy is in the hospital and everything is different. The frozen soup can be pulled out later and a piece of me will be with them when they need it.

Agree with you, Cheryl! I'm still looking for a good man that will love me as much as my cats do! Corey, I think you should pray to overcome your fear of dogs. Dogs (all animals) give their humans so much in the way of loving, laughing, and the simple acceptance of life. Anyone who is interested in planning for a pet like Mr. Espresso is deserves points in my book!

What a fun post! Darling little creatures, weaving their way into your heart! The wedding dress is indeed lovely, even without the bride in it! An amazing day is soon to happen.

Life certainly has a way of making itself difficult from time to time! Sorry to hear about your accident. I wish you a speedy recovery. Rest and take care of yourself as best you can. Look for the lemonade! Wish I could bring you a glass.

Absolutely love this post! Very synchronistic that several people posted "This too shall pass." I thought of that before even I started reading. My meditation on Sunday focused on this very line. And not just thinking about the difficult things that we plow through from time to time. Think of it also as the good things, the good times. Those pass away too. Enjoy the moments while we're living them!

Adorable story! Makes me remember the first time my son told me so and so had used the bad "s" word. Bracing myself, I heard it from his sweet mouth, "shut up." Enjoy your time and stories with the donut munchers!

Lemons, pasta, Italy. Three of my favorite things! After your reference to the lemon pasta the other day, decided to make it for dinner one night this week. Tonight was it! Too bad I was on my own before you posted the recipe today. Amazingly close, I just added some basil and used penne. Used up the seed bread I made yesterday morning. Thanks for sharing your Italy pictures. How I long to return!

Lovely post! What a lesson on tea. The drink I choose depends on my mood. Green tea in the morning, caffe latte in the afternoon or visiting with friends, nothing soothes my soul like a cup of chai, herbal tea at night to ease me into sweet dreams. How grateful I am that we are able to share in your treasured time with Chelsea in China.

Please! A photo of Stinky Cat! My imagination runs wild with how you would chose to set that photo up! In a good way . . . I am a cat lover but realize that my little darlings can drive others absolutely mad! Of course, the list of your favorites would be a favorite for all of us.

Heartfelt post and comments. Dream visits are most beautiful. I've had them from a long lost love. Actually, today makes 35 years. Simple comments from my son are the best compliments. He's 18 now, and our humble home is the gathering spot for his friends. As he returned from taking one of his friends home last night during an ice storm, he said he was glad he was coming home to me, that he has the mom he has and not someone else. Melted the ice on my doorstep!

I'm tempted to print the picture, put it in a gold frame alongside a vase with pink carnations next to my bed. Perhaps as a beacon that someone will never forget me someday. Romance abides when we look for it. Thanks as ever, Corey, for sharing.

1. Nearly cross-eyed working so hard on a report for my principal in the morning. 2. At least I have a good cup of chai to keep me company. 3. Wondering why my 18 year old son stays up late whenever I do. 4. Love working on creative projects. Mixed media and sewing are two things keeping me inspired lately. 5. How would I survive without yoga? 6. Love to cook, but hate the mess I make. 7. Walking in the winter makes me feel so completely alive. 8. Thankful for your posts, Corey, and the wonderful responses.
