Things & Stuff

Hi Blog!

It has indeed been a whirlwind around here. Last weekend was very festive with Tom’s birthday, the Halloween block party, annual spooky family dinner, and, of course, Trick-or-Treating. I didn’t take any pics. Who am I??!!

This week, I…

Have been immersed in my new (old) Julia Child cookbook that I found at the thrift store. She is so long winded. I love it! 2 whole pages on how to properly boil an egg!


Could truthfully use the excuse “the cat ate my homework.”


Listened to not one, but TWO, violin players in the house now! We’re on our way to being a string quartet!


Have a great weekend, Friends!


Hi Blog! Today is 11/11! I love those crazy number days.

On Saturday night we went to a Punkin Chunkin’, basically a big party on a farm with a bonfire… and a giant catapult for shooting flaming pumpkins. It sounds a lot more redneck than it actually is. Well, maybe not.
