Love the chaps! Glad that the switcheroo worked out!
And I have been thinking about the Oso victims as well. Just heart-breaking!
Sledding at Mt Baker with my brother and nephew, 2009:                        After a couple hours, Z had enough.   He was tired of crashing and losing his gloves.  And cold.  We he...

I'm an admitted Amish fiction junky and I have learned many "bloom where you are planted" lessons through reading these and other Amish-inspired blogs and books.  Thanks for the great thoughts and inspiration. :)
Some of my earliest memories of my dad include me "helping him" wash the car. He remains a frequent car washer. My mom mentioned recently that he washed their new Buick twice in the same day. So I have very vivid memories, pr...

Good job on the turtle cake. I would have taken it to a taxidermist to preserve for posterity! :)
Julia turns nine tomorrow. That's a big number. I remember turning nine. I am in no way old enough to have a child that old. But her advancing age isn't all bad (unlike my advancing age, which I'm fairly certain is all bad). ...

Chuckling at the wild turkey adventure -- we've had similar ones here thanks to Shane. Roasted Beaver anyone? I ain't kidding.
When I was a kid, my two grandmas were distinguished by size. We had "Big Gram" and "Little Gram." This is Little Gram. I don't remember Little Gram being a good cook. In fact, the single worst food crime I've witnessed in my...

I've totally fallen off the "no sugar, no gluten, no nothin'" wagon lately. These look really good!
During the dark days of my FODMAP elimination, I felt like I couldn't eat anything. Simultaneously cutting lactose, fructose, and wheat out of my diet left me with my choice of corn or rice. As long as they weren't combined w...

Totally great way to recycle -- I've used tp tubes as little seed starters...
I'm finding myself with a lot of craft opportunities of late. Through church, where I'm helping to plan Vacation Bible School (VBS), and my daughter's Girl Scout troop, I'm entertaining kids with scissors and paper and glue. ...

I kinda view gumbo as a "throw in what you've got" stew... which is prolly not correct. Glad you are no longer afraid of the roux... :)
For a while, Julia was into watching and re-watching certain movies over and over again. There was a Barbie & A Mermaid Tale phase and a Hunchback of Notre Dame phase (that was weird). For years, she seemed impervious to havi...
