A Junking I Will Go
by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett One of the things I enjoy most about the summer and early fall is going junking on a Saturday morning with Mr. L. Since he's a mapmaker, he knows where he's going, and I just look at the scenery between o...

I eat a healthy breakfast at least 6 days of the week (usually 7--and it's usually green juice). Mr. L eats whatever he wants and NEVER gains an ounce. I just look at the pound cake and gain weight. It's pretty obvious what Fred's choice is when it comes to breakfast. What did you have for breakfast this morning (and I'll bet you enjoyed it ore than I did).

Is it cold, snowy or rainy where you are? Then it's a great day to read a #cozymystery.

Hey, it's TEACUP TUESDAY, and isn't this peacock motif cup and saucer by Lomonosov adorable? It's something I'm sure Katie Bonner, from The Victoria Square Mysteries, would love to drink from and own.

Went to the bakery the other day and resisted one of these goodies. After standing on the scale this morning, I'm glad I did. How good are you at resisting temptation?

So, I've been plowing through the Encyclopedia of Creative cooking. It has 770 pages of recipes, with wonderful pictures of food. So how come I'm 63% of the way through the book, and have only found TWO #recipes I want to make. (Frosting recipes.) A few have tempted me, but mostly they use ingredients I'd have to buy and probably never use again. Still, it's a fun read, with loads of gorgeous photos. I got it at a thrift shop and I'm afraid it's going back there in a couple of weeks under my "catch and release program." The shop helps the homeless. I figure I got my $1 worth of entertainment from it.

If you want to read more about it, you can find it on Amazon.

Website Woes: My Brain Hurts
by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett Over the years, I've learned just enough HTML code to be dangerous. I can update certain things on my website, and I recently learned how to embed a PDF. (If you go to my Lorraine site, on the From Katie'...

My character, Kathy Grant, from the #LotusBayMysteries has added fruit kabobs to the list of foods she's going to share when she hosts bridal showers. What a great treat for a hot summer's day.

More than just a friendly face
Today's spotlight is on ... Noreen Darby. Who? If you've read With Baited Breath, you know that Noreen is part-owner of The Bay Bay, which is right next door to the wreck of a house Kathy Grant wants to turn into a B&B. Noreen was an office worker who rode ...
